WASHCLOTHS

Can breed bacteria

SHOWER SPONGE

Can harbor dirt

HANDS

Transfer dirt to your face

BAR SOAP

Touches all your other parts... enough said

You may think removing dirt and oil is as simple as cleansing. But frequently, the things you use to wash your face may be guilty of depositing dirt or bacteria, themselves:

WASHCLOTHS

Bacteria thrive in damp environments. So if you’re going to use one on your face, use a fresh one each time.


SHOWER SPONGES

Like washcloths, they can breed bacteria and transfer it to your face.


HANDS

Dirt on your hands can wind up on whatever they touch. So be sure to wash them before washing your face.


BAR SOAP

Consider this: that bar has already been on your feet, underarms and...well, you get the idea.

COLD
WATER

Softens hair less

AGAINST
THE GRAIN

Can cause ingrown hairs

DRY SHAVING

Can irritate skin

ALCOHOL-BASED AFTERSHAVE

Can dry out skin

Using a high performance shave cream can be a big help in reducing irritation. But there are other sneaky culprits behind the burn, bumps, and cuts. Cut these out of your shaving routine to help achieve smoother results, painlessly:

WASHING WITH COLD WATER

Use warm water to soften the hairs for a more comfortable shave. Cold water may not soften hair as much, which can sometimes cause your razor to tug rather than cut.


SHAVING AGAINST THE GRAIN

Some guys do it to get a closer cut. But, shaving against the grain could also lead to ingrown hairs and irritation. Follow the grain to avoid the pain.


DRY-SHAVING

Shaving without water or gel is a quick way to irritate your skin. Soften your beard with warm water before lathering up for a closer, more comfortable shave.


ALCOHOL-BASED AFTERSHAVES

They sting and they can dry out your skin. Choose an alcohol-free lotion or balm to soothe and re-hydrate your freshly shorn face instead.

IN THE CAR

Windshields can't stop the sun

AT WORK

Sun damage doesn't take days off

CLOUDY DAYS

Rain or shine, pack the SPF

EVERY DAY, EVERY SEASON

UV Rays are year-round

Sunshine on your cheeks might make you happy, but your face needs protection. Without it, the sun’s UV rays could lead to wrinkles, spotty skin or even skin cancer. Check this list for some unexpected times when you should be safeguarding your skin with a broad-spectrum SPF moisturizer:

IN THE CAR

While you’re soaking up the scenery, your face is still soaking up harmful UV rays via the windows. Drive safely, with the protection of broad-spectrum SPF.


AT WORK

Maybe not as obvious, but still a good idea. Can you see the sun through a window? It sees you, too. Protect yourself.


CLOUDY DAYS

The sun can actually do damage when it’s hidden, because you don’t suspect it’s reaching your skin. Applying protection as if it were sunny is always a bright idea.


EVERY DAY, EVERY SEASON

Truth is, the sun can damage your skin year-round. So basically, if you’re awake and it’s daytime, you should be wearing broad-spectrum SPF.

Unisex cleansers and products made for women may get your face clean. However, they don’t always account for factors unique to guys’ skin, like shaving, larger pores and more natural oil. Men’s products are specially formulated with these differences in mind, so you get a deep, thorough clean for your face.

Water temperature can help you clean without over drying. For starters, use warm water to help loosen dirt and oil in your pores and help your cleanser to do its job. Then, rinse your newly-cleaned skin with cool water to help avoid over drying; using hot could actually dry it out.

Most guys naturally wait until they have razor burn to treat it. But, because shaving can leave your face dry and susceptible to irritation, it’s important to build your skin’s defenses before the bumps and burn even start. This pre-shave protection plan can help.

Aftershave should help soothe, and re-hydrate your skin to help prevent razor irritation. So, it shouldn’t burn to do its job. Out of respect, choose an alcohol-free post-shave lotion or balm, and apply after washing skin with cool water and patting dry. This will help ensure your face feels hydrated —not like it’s on fire.

It’s common knowledge that dry skin can benefit from moisturizer. But, oily skin needs it, too—or it could get even oilier. Skin sometimes produces extra oils to try and make up for a lack of hydration. The result: greasier skin and clogged pores. So whether you have dry or oily skin, a daily moisturizer can help keep it looking and feeling healthy.

Ok, so you’re using (or thinking about using) a facial moisturizer. Now it’s time to make sure you’re getting the most bang for you buck. Start by exfoliating your face so the moisturizer can get to the healthy skin below. Then, prepare your pores with warm water and massage the moisturizer in until it’s fully absorbed.
