Exfoliate often.

No matter how often you wash your face, use a scrub a few times a week to get a deeper clean. Exfoliating frees your skin of pore-clogging residue and dead skin cells; it also opens up hair follicles, allowing for a closer and safer shave.


Choose Your Moisturiser Wisely

While most guys will take the ‘grab the cheapest’ approach to selecting their moisturizer, you could be doing yourself a greasy disservice by not opting for one specifically tailored to withstanding summer sun or oily skin. It really pays to do your research and take your time when choosing a moisturizer – do it once, then it’s just a matter of picking a new one up every time it runs out.

Cleanse Properly

Lastly, while exfoliating a couple of times a week will scrub away and remove any dead skin/oil buildup, the continued use of a quality cleanser will minimize your chances of any buildup in the first place.

Twice daily, you should be giving your skin a proper cleanse with a cloth and a men’s skin cleanser. While many unisex options will do the job, a dedicated men’s cleanser will contain ingredients that’ll work best on men’s skin, minimizing oil production and typically containing more rigorous, man-friendly ingredients than that of the fairer sex. They will also smell a bit, well, manlier, so if this is something you look for in your skincare, you can be assured to come away looking and feeling fresher. Nonetheless, if you have delicate or sensitive skin, it might be best to stick to unscented products so that you don’t end up irritating your skin.
