Skin Care Tips For Men

How To Have Healthy Looking Skin

If you want to look like a gentleman, you have to start grooming yourself like one. One simple thing that many guys underestimate is the difference a proper skin care routine can make in your look. Not only will your skin look clear and feel smooth to the touch, you’ll get a big boost in your self confidence when you take a look at your reflection and see a perfectly groomed gentleman.

If you’ve decided to start taking your skincare seriously, or are just looking for some helpful tips to step up your look, 18|8 Fine Men’s Salon of Austin is here to help you. We’ve put together this list of skin care tips that you can use to achieve that stylish, clean look you’ve always wanted.

Use Sunscreen

Whether you spend your entire day in the sun or only just a small fraction of it, your skin can take some damage regardless. Even just a little bit of sun exposure can cause redness or irritation in sensitive skin, not to mention the long-term effects like the risk of skin cancer. For a quick and simple solution, apply some sunscreen to your exposed skin before you head out to protect yourself from those harmful rays.

If you don’t know what sunscreen to get, look for a skin moisturizer that doubles as sunscreen with a decent SPF of at least 30. If you can’t find a moisturizer, just a typical sunscreen with any kind of SPF will do the trick.

Improve Your Shaving Game

For the guys who shave everyday and for the ones who do so only to maintain an epic beard, it’s always worth it to invest in a good-quality razor. From your simple straight razors to high-tech electric razors, find one that works best for you to give you a close shave with little irritation. Different kinds of razors cater to different skin sensitivities and hair coarseness, so finding the right one can make all the difference. If you don’t know what to choose, visit your grooming experts here at 18|8 Austin and we’ll be more than happy to help point you in the right direction.

Other than your razor, invest in some shaving gel to use during your shave, and some aftershave too. The shaving gel will help make your shave smoother by giving you a barrier of protection between the blades and your skin, and the aftershave will help reduce redness and irritation by providing you skin with some much needed hydration. Just make sure the aftershave you get is alcohol free, since alcohol will dry out your skin instead of hydrating it.

Cleanse Your Skin

Everyday, dirt from your environment, dead skin cells, and oils produced from your body build up on your skin and in your pores. It’s natural and unavoidable, so what you should do is always make sure to cleanse your skin of all of these impurities, while providing it with the nutrients it needs to keep looking healthy.

One way you can do this is to get yourself a facial cleanser that is designed to exfoliate and wash away all of those impurities to leave your skin feeling fresh and clean. While the typical cleansers come in the forms of face washes, you can also come to 18|8 Austin for a special black mask peel. This peel acts as a cleanser, clearing away all of the dirt and oils from your skin, while being gentle on the skin, making it perfect for those with more sensitive skin.

Get A Professional Facial

While at-home solutions do help keep your skin looking healthy, some skincare from a professional can make a big difference in just a short time.

Facials are one way of taking your skincare to the next level. At 18|8 Fine Men’s Salon of Austin, we offer organic facial treatments that are designed to cater to the specific needs of men’s skin. From a deep exfoliation and cleaning process to a hydration treatment, we’ll make sure your skin is looking and feeling perfectly healthy Also, when you choose 18|8, you’ll be able to kick back with a relaxing massage and hot towel treatment that will leave you feeling refreshed.
