Step 1 – No emphatic proclamations or impossible New Year’s resolutions. You’ve already waited a few weeks, so that’s definitely not your style. Like you, 2021 is primed for a complete reset! We’ve had a whole year of sitting on our hands and standing on our heads (somehow both at the same time), but not this year; we’re taking it all back in 2021!
A successful healthy skin regimen is not hours spent in front of the mirror, or one-size-fits-all; your successful healthy, vibrant skin regimen is all about establishing and maintaining a few new habits, thoughtfully switching up some of the men’s skincare and cosmetic products you use and the foods you eat, and finding what works best for you.
Know Your Skin
Just as men’s skin is different in important ways from women’s skin, so is your skin different in some essential ways from other men. Oilier skin is not treated the same as drier skin; skin prone more to blemishes and acne requires a different approach than clearer skin; and skin that is more sensitive necessitates a gentler, lighter touch.
No one knows your skin better than you, so the best place to start is understanding what you have to work with, and formulating a routine that addresses your skin and lifestyle specifically to achieve the best results.
That said, whatever your skin type, there are 7 Simple Steps every guy should stick to for healthy, vibrant skin.
Men’s Successful Skincare in 7 Simple Steps
- Clean Daily
You’re not going to get anywhere in your new skincare routine if you don’t start with keeping your skin clean every day! Most of your standard supermarket soaps are overly fragrant and tend to dry out your skin more than clean it. Treat your face a little differently than you might the rest of your body. Go with a milder cleanser where your skin is sensitive, and definitely stay away from traditional bar soaps on your face; they’re not doing you any favors.
- Exfoliate & Moisturize
Do not skip this step! Exfoliating your entire body, including your face, is a vital part of your skincare regimen. Exfoliating aids in reducing the risk and frequency of breakouts and acne, and also helps treat scars, blemishes, and dry, flaky skin.
MËNAJI’s Face & Body Scrub is designed for daily use in or out of the shower, before or after shaving. It contains no chemical exfoliants, but does contain the physical exfoliant polylactic acid (PLA), also known as Ecoscrub, as well as ingredients like Arnica Montana Flower Extract and Aloe Vera to help soothe and treat your skin with antioxidants and vital nutrients.
Follow with a rich, nutrient-dense moisturizer like MËNAJI’s Power Hydrator Plus and your skin will thank you!
- Shave Like You Mean It
Whether you’re simply cleaning up the fine lines, trimming between your eyebrows, or taking it all off, shaving intentionally is not something to be taken lightly. It’s simple: invest in a shaving gel formula that treats the skin and makes light work of your shaving technique. Follow with a soothing, moisturizing aftershave lotion to help your skin recover and revitalize.
- SPF: Sun Protection Forever
The sun is relentless when it comes to your skin. A good water-resistant moisturizer with SPF sun protection is essential on any exposed skin: face, neck, lips, etc. Keep your skin covered if exposed to the sun for long periods of time, and reapply sun protection often.
- Eat Well
Your body is a startling reflection of everything you put on it and in it. You literally are what you eat, and the better you eat, the better your body, and your skin will feel and reflect your most healthful and vibrant self.
All the men’s clean, green grooming and skincare products in the world still only play backup to a healthy, intentional diet that literally feeds your skin and promotes wellness and vitality from within. Foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, vitamins C and D, and rich whole grains are all essential ingredients in a healthy diet for healthy skin.
- Beauty Sleep
It may be a cliché, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t true. Your body is working to repair muscles, organs, and other cells, including your skin cells, while you sleep. A good night’s sleep helps repair your skin, improve your overall immune system function, positively affects your emotions and social interactions, and so much more.
Lack of sleep, on the other hand, is linked to increased body weight, increased inflammation, depression, and host of other issues and concerns, so count your sheep for healthy, vibrant skin!
- Rinse & Repeat
Your healthy skin reset depends on your staying the course and paying attention. Your skin is constantly changing, but switching up your habits and keeping a closer eye on it, you can head off any issues or concerns before they get out of hand. Avoid the common mistakes most men make in their grooming routines by sticking to yours intentionally, investing in the right products for your skin, and reaching out for guidance on what’s best and how to use it.
