If you are said man, I’m here to guide you through some tips if you’re wanting to upgrade your routine, and swap your razor for a little TLC:
Aloe Vera is not only a beautiful addition to your bathroom shelf/ but encourages the growth of fresh skin cells. Additional benefits include; moisturizing and revitalizing skin, as well as having healing properties.
Moisturizers are essential to your skincare routine! It has both healing and antioxidant advantages that result in younger, fresh-looking skin. Following a face wash or shower, apply the moisturizer straight to damp skin.
Top tip - make sure your moisturizer contains SPF, as it helps prevent damage to the skin and premature aging.
Make coconut oil your best friend as it contains 'anti-inflammatory, therapeutic and antioxidant properties'. Certain skin types may not benefit from this product, so a safe option is to obtain a 'cold pressed variant' that will act as a great moisturizer.
Lower Your Shower Temperature
Opening up your skin to hot water over a long duration can result in the removal of natural oils, meaning duller-looking skin. It is advised that decreasing the temperature towards the end of your shower promotes blood flow, giving your skin ‘a more toned and youthful appearance’.
