I will moisturize my entire body
When we talk about skin care and moisturizer, we’re usually referring to the face. But you shouldn’t neglect the other 90% of your body’s surface area: Using the right body lotion can eliminate dry patches of skin, calluses, and unexpected acne cameos. We recommend slathering post-shower for the best results.
I will scrub my way to clearer skin
A basic healthy skin-care regimen has three steps, but many guys are still cutting out the middleman: First you cleanse to remove dirt and grime, then you exfoliate to buff away dead skin cells then you moisturize to restore hydration.
All three are imperative to a clear complexion, but somehow exfoliating gets about as much love as leg day at the gym. Get a super gentle one for daily use, or a more aggressive scrub for twice-weekly deployment.
I will use hair paste
Maybe you already have a hair product that works perfectly for you. Keep it. Cherish it. There are billions of men in the world who are less fortunate than you. Luckily, if you aren’t sure which product is best for your hair, paste is a safe bet.
You can apply it to damp hair for medium-light shine and pliable hold, or to dry hair for less shine and less hold for a texturized, fresh-from-the-surf effect. It’s heavy enough to smooth curls and tame fly-aways but light enough to rinse out for a seamless re-style.
I will develop a bedtime skin-care regimen
The most effective skin care doesn’t happen before you walk out the door—apologies to all the SPF matte moisturizers and spot treatments out there. Indeed, the most important time to apply products is before bed, since the benefits of each are magnified.
While you sleep, your body’s cells regenerate, which is why you wake up without yesterday’s blemishes, or why a good sleep can cure a fever. By applying nutrient-dense recovery serums or night creams before bed, you’re basically strapping rocket boosters onto the skin’s natural restorative process.
I will stop worrying about razor burn and learn to love the balm
Considering all the strain your skin endures during a shave, you need to prioritize its recovery, quite literally, you need to save face. That’s why it’s a good idea to follow each shave with a balm.
Balms are alcohol-free, and they soothe and disinfect the skin with natural oils, while also creating a protective barrier against environmental and bacterial threats. Goodbye razor burn, goodbye redness, goodbye every other aftershave.
