If you want a bright, smooth and glowing skin, you’ll need to go beyond the basics when it comes to skincare.
Also, forget about using your sister’s or partner’s skincare products. Get your own products that fit your skin type and goals.
Achieving and maintaining a fair face is all about routine and lifestyle. So how to increase fairness of face for men?
A Good Skincare Routine
Yes, washing your face and applying lotion are good first steps. But your face needs more attention than that.
First, make sure you are using the right products to clean your face. Start with a scrub to exfoliate your skin (removes dirt and dead cells) then follow it up with a good quality cleanser. If you have sensitive skin, look for a cleanser formulated to prevent irritation and breakouts.
Do not use a regular bar soap to wash your face as it’ll dry out your skin. Over time, soap will turn your face dull and patchy.
- Note: Use the exfoliating scrub only 3-4 times a week to avoid irritating your skin.
Once your face is clean, the next thing to do is moisturize it. At the very least, you should apply moisturiser twice a day in the morning and in the evening after you take a shower.
A good quality moisturiser keeps your skin hydrated, balances out your complexion and prevents skin breakouts.
Look for a moisturising cream with lots of natural oils and vitamins to hydrate and nourish your skin.
Skincare is also about protection. Whenever you are going outdoors, apply sunscreen to protect your skin from UV damage. Don’t forget to carry a bottle of lip balm to protect your lips from drying and cracking.
Cleansing, exfoliating and moisturising your face is enough to keep your skin smooth and glowing.
We recommend going the extra step and using makeup. While traditionally seen as a ladies thing, makeup is just as important for men who want to look great.
Don’t worry; you don’t have to spend hours every morning in front of the mirror.
Your entire makeup routine can be as simple as applying a foundation and some moisturiser.
Foundation comes in many forms including powders, creams or liquid. Look for foundation that matches your skin tone. A good foundation will even out your complexion, hide some imperfections and give your face a lift.
If you want to save time in the morning, a tinted moisturiser is a good choice. It combines a light coverage foundation with moisturiser. The tint adds a slight tan and colour lift to your face.
To hide noticeable imperfections, get a concealer and using it along with foundation.
Your lifestyle largely involves what you ingest. What goes into your body significantly affect the health of your skin.
A healthy diet rich in vitamins, good fats and proteins will keep your skin looking great. That means plenty of vegetables, nuts, fish and fruits.
Avoid foods that are high in sugar and unhealthy fats. Sugar is particularly bad. It can worsen acne, eczema and other skin conditions.
Sugar can also make your face appear looser and older by breaking down collagen and elastin.
Remember to drink lots of water throughout the day to keep your skin hydrated from the inside.
Other lifestyle aspect to be careful about include stress levels, sleep quality and exercise. Aim to reduce stress, sleep more (and better) and exercise regularly.
