A reader asks: Is there any weekly routine you recommend for skin and facial hair?

Guys, not only do we notice your hair but your skin is probably one of the most important things to take care of. To keep it looking clean, clear, and youthful here are a few things you can do each day:

1. Face Wash

It seems simple enough but most guys aren’t doing it. Find a facial wash that suites your skin type. Oily, breakout-prone skin, use one with pore refining ingredients like salicylic or glycolic acid. If you have sensitive skin use one with calming lavender, chamomile and aloe.

2. Moisturize

For me this is probably the most important step. Protect and hydrate your skin with a moisturizer, it can make you look more awake and younger in seconds.

3. Scrub

Use a facial scrub with microbeads or a device/tool to clean away dead skin at least once a week. This instantly brightens and cleans your pores.

It’s best to keep the routine simple and these 3 steps will make a world of difference in your skin.


Facial Hair Control

Keeping your facial hair tidy is also important to look well groomed. Pluck or shave stray hairs in between the eyebrows, nose and ears. Those little disposable flat razors or small motorized shaving devices are great for pain free removal.

If you have facial hair or any scruff keep it trimmed, paying close attention to your neck.
