Look, we get it - you might not have focused on your skin when you were younger because you didn't think you needed to. While prevention is often said to be better than cure, it's never too late to start addressing ageing skin. In our view, the first step is to adopt an effective skincare routine. These are our top 5 skincare tips on how to do this!
- Wear sunscreen
Our skin's affected by UV light regardless of whether it's sunny or not. UV light is one of the biggest contributing factors to premature ageing. Wearing sunscreen every day can help prevent premature ageing, and even reverse signs of ageing, as protected skin can more easily repair.
- Wash your face daily
Using a men's face wash (or cleanser) is more than washing your face with soap and water, it's about cleaning your skin thoroughly. It removes dirt, dust, sweat and pollutants that build up on your face throughout the day and night. Without washing our face daily, it's difficult for dedicated anti-ageing products to be absorbed and be effective on our skin.
- Exfoliate your face regularly
As we age, the life cycle of our skin cells gets longer. Using a men's face scrub once or twice a week after cleansing helps remove the most stubborn of dead skin skins that sit on the surface of your face. It reveals younger, healthier skin and helps with the better absorption of dedicated anti-ageing products.
Our skin's ability to retain moisture reduces as we age, often leading to rough and dry-looking skin. Moisture levels also change throughout the day and decline well into the evening. Moisturising your face daily with a men's face moisturiser helps keep skin hydrated and more effectively protects against premature ageing.
- Don't forget your eyes
Eyes are typically the first thing we notice about a person and equally where we see the first signs of ageing, like fine lines and wrinkles. The skin under and around our eyes needs just as much hydration as the rest of our face. Using men's eye care helps to reduce dark circles, puffiness and, all importantly, wrinkles.
So, good news - it's never too late to focus on ageing skin, just like it's never too late to revamp our health and wellness. Remember to use products for your skin type and specifically made for men as women's products won't be as effective.
