Dr. Geetika Mittal Gupta Shares the following five steps for men:
1. Use a cleanser
Before doing anything to your skin, it's important to clean it first. The basic requirement for a skincare regime involves using a cleanser to remove the dirt from your skin. You can use a cleanser ideal for your skin type twice a day to get rid of dust, dirt, pollution, and bacteria, Dr. Geetika suggests.
2. Apply moisturiser
First of all, you need to have a moisturiser that's suitable for your skin type. Use an ideal moisturiser based on your skin type for proper hydration and nourishment. This step is important to keep the skin from developing early signs of ageing.
3. Use scrub before shaving
Dr. Geetika says that you must use an exfoliating scrub before shaving. This is to prevent ingrown hair that may affect you in many ways.
4. Use a hydrating/aftershave serum
You may not be this particular about your shaving ritual but it's important to know that even after-shave serum is important. You need to keep your skin hydrated by applying a hydrating serum at least once a day.
5. Sunscreen is mandatory
The dermatologist suggests that you must never go out of the house without applying your sunscreen. It provides protection to your skin from harmful sunrays. Sunscreen is essential to prevent your skin from UV damage, she says.
So, if you haven't given enough thought to your skincare, it's time to think about it and follow these tips.
