It doesn’t take much tIime to improve the look and feel of your skin. There are four key steps that should be taken to promote and maintain the health of your skin.
1. You will need to wash your skin. at Man Calgary we recommend using a very mild facial cleanser as some cleansers can be quite abrasive and with our dry climates can excessively dry out the skin. Ideally, the face washing ritual should be performed in the morning and at night before you go to bed to remove the toxins and dust particles from the day.
2. It is also important to remove the dead skin cell layer which develops over approximately a six week period on your skin. It is a crusty thin layer that makes your skin look dull. You will need to use an exfoliating scrub routinely to remove this thin layer of skin. Make sure the product that you use is not too abrasive as this will scratch the skin and can cause bacteria to enter. This ritual should be performed once or twice per week as required.
3. After your skin is thoroughly cleaned and the dead cell layer has been removed. It is important to rehydrate the skin. A good moisturizer that is not greasy and penetrates into the pores is recommended. You need to feed your skin as you need to feed your body this will help your skin look renewed and give it a healthy glow.
4. Finally, and very importantly, you must use sunscreen on your face. Sunscreen needs to be applied every two hours on your skin if you are exposed to the sun. It is not enough to have a moisturizer that contains sunscreen in it. The active ingredient in sunscreen only lasts a couple of hours, so protect your skin!
All of these rituals combined take less time than putting on a pair skates, or loading your golf clubs into the back of your SUV. Once you get into the habit of performing these steps daily, you will look forward to doing it. Nothing feels better than fresh, clean feeling moisturized skin that has a healthy glow.
