Should Men Exfoliate?
OK guys, we’re going into unknown territories here. Exfoliation is not even in most men’s vocabulary so you can imagine how many of them actually do it.
Exfoliation is the process through which one removes dead skin from (typically) your face, to show off new skin. You may think that this already happens naturally when we wash our faces. That’s true. But exfoliating will actually result in a cleaner, smoother skin.
Can you remember a guy who had a really clean skin? You know… no spots, no pimples… a really shiny skin? He either had good genetics, or he was exfoliating regularly.
That’s actually up to each of us to decide. If you’re not happy with your facial skin, then you should be happy there are men’s exfoliating products. If you think your facial skin is fine, try it for a few weeks and see if you’re happy with the results.
Exfoliation, though the name sounds complicated, is actually pretty simple. You choose an exfoliating gel or cream, wet your face with water, apply the cream or gel, scrub for a few minutes, then rinse and dry.
As a rule, you should scrub until you won’t feel the grains on your face anymore while you move your hands in a circular motion over your face.
You should ideally exfoliate before each shave, as part of your morning facial routine. If you’re on a budget or aren’t that much of a “I want perfect skin” kind of guy, do it at least a couple of times a week.
Not at all. You can get one for under $10 and it will last you for at least 4 weeks.
That’s it! Nothing complicated about it. Exfoliation is not as important as other personal hygiene rules but it can make a real difference in the way your skin looks. Give it a try.
