Did you know that 80% of Americans wash their face incorrectly? And that 54% skip washing their face before sleeping?
If you're a guilty party, then you may have been wondering how to improve your daily skincare routine so you look fresher and more rejuvenated. But we get you, often you just don’t know where to start and end up giving up. Been there, done that.
Here are the two outrageously simple steps for building your routine:
Step 1: Cleansing
As you go about your day, dirt, oils, and grime can accumulate. As a result, you might be familiar with things like clogged pores and acne. In addition, your skin probably doesn't feel so fresh at any part of the day.
Morning and evenings, use a face foaming cleanser to remove all those nasty things. Watch for products for men with activated charcoal. It gently eliminates impurities without irritating your face and works for all types of skin.
Once you start cleansing twice a day, you will quickly see and feel a noticeable difference. This is because your pores can finally be open and free of impurities.
As an easy upgrade to the above, once a week you might want to deeply purify your pores. GQ recommends using a deep-cleansing face mask sheet ‘to double-down on pore cleansing’ and thus better preventing acne. These clay-based face mask sheets detoxify the skin, eliminate the excess oil and remove black heads. In addition, they contain the necessary vitamins to nourish your skin. Your skin will look and feel clean, fresh and over time, rejuvenated.
Step 2: Moisturizing
Moisturizing is equally important to cleansing your skin. It’s key to anti-aging just like it is key to keep your body hydrated. Your skin needs a hydrating lotion.
Lotions are usually filled of ingredients that have vitamins and nutrients, which give your skin exactly what it needs to have a wholesome luster. Lotions can also provide a barrier between your skin and harmful environmental factors, such as smog or smoke.
Similarly to step 1, GQ suggest a weekly ‘hyper-hydrating mask’ for a deep skin hydration. This will definitely avoid your moisturizers evaporating out in the air as the hydrating sebum is compressing in the skin and not out.
