Often neglected by men, integrating an exfoliator into your skincare regimen will not only remove dead skin cells, but it’ll also maximise the effect of the products you’re already using.
For too many men, a grooming routine means a splash of warm water, a slather of shaving foam and a quick once over with a cartridge razor. No wonder that their skin looks dull, tired and flaky. Taking proper care of your skin by adopting an effective skincare routine comes with a whole lot of benefits and it’s well worth spending those few extra minutes in the morning. One step that men often neglect or don’t consider is exfoliation. Integrating an exfoliator into your skincare regimen will not only remove dead skin cells, but it’ll also maximize the effect of the products you’re already using. In short, exfoliating products can turn over fresh skin cells, so you won’t be layering, say, moisturizer on top of dirty skin.
Unlike face wash or toner which should be used daily, exfoliators are best used up to three times a week, or once or twice for sensitive skin. Although exfoliators provide a more thorough cleaning, using them on daily basic will scrub away perfectly healthy skin which will lead to irritation and potential blemishes. Remember to prep your skin under hot water then gently apply the product with a circular motion. The coarser elements of an exfoliator are specially designed to get rid of dead skin so there’s no need to scrub hard. Here are a few selected exfoliation products for your consideration.
