How To Look Younger: The Ultimate Skincare Plan For Men

Don't think of this as an anti-aging process; think of this routine as a way to look your ultimate best as long as possible. Let's hold on to our youth! At some point, you might become concerned with aging! Whether it happened when you were in your late 20's or when you were in your 50’s, I’m sure it’s happened! Instead of thinking of your skincare routine as anti-aging, consider it the best method of self-preservation out there. You make healthy choices and feed your body right, you work out in the gym a few times a week to keep your muscles toned, but many men neglect their faces. Now’s the time to hold onto your youth as long as possible and look your ultimate best.

  1. Notice the signs

Most men aren't as concerned with aging as women. Usually, it's not until you take a look in the mirror and notice you don't look like you did 5, 10, or 20 years ago that you dive into the skincare pool. The good thing is, it's never too late to start. Noticing things don’t look like they used to is a big sign reading “HELP ME," but hey, it’s a sign.

  1. Stop using a bar of soap, please!

Say bye to the bar of soap! Soap cleansers can have a high pH that tends to strip your skin of its natural oils and lipids. The results are dry skin. Your face is delicate, and it should get a proper wash with a good gentle cleanser. The Action Rehydrating cleanser is designed for men and a best seller! Once or twice a week, you should indulge in a deep clean and use a good scrub. A bright complexion is a healthy one.

  1. Serums are your friend

If you’ve got some form of a skincare routine going, odds are you use a moisturizer. That's one of the essential must-dos for skincare. Moisturizer is necessary and a great start to fighting aging, but a serums power can not be forgotten. Serums help fight wrinkles, fine lines, dark spots and boost collagen production, and much more. Serums penetrate further into your skin, so moral of the story, buy a serum!

  1. Don't forget your neck, it doesn't keep secrets

As we age, our necks tend to be a big giveaway that we aren’t in our 20's anymore. As time goes on, our skin loses elasticity, and neck wrinkles form. UV light exposure and things unthought-of such as looking down your cell phone, cause premature wrinkles across your neck. It's important to use sunscreen not only on your face but on your neck as well. Try to remember your neck is an extension of your face, don't skip it! To stay looking your best, copy the same routine you regularly do for your face- cleanser, moisturizer, serum, sunscreen, don’t skimp out on the neck. You can’t take care of your face and forget your neck, and like we said, your neck doesn’t keep secrets and will tell your age.

  1. Moisturizer with SPF

Keeping your skin hydrated is key to preventing wrinkles and fine lines. Not only does moisturizer make wrinkles look less obvious, but it also brightens your completion. Moisturizer alone won't halt the aging process, but it plays a role. A great option is the LIFT Anti-Gravity Moisturizer, followed by the DEFEND Hydrating Facial Sunscreen. UV light is the number one causing of premature aging, so that speaks volumes. Not many people know that the UVA rays causing wrinkles and discoloration are as strong from summer to winter, so sunscreen applications happen all year. Regardless if you’re just commuting to and from work daily and sitting inside for most of the day, UVA rays can penetrate through the window, and that's enough to cause premature aging.

  1. Fight crow's feet

Aside from our necks, men tend to show age in the eye area. Dry skin around the eyes can lead to premature aging and fine lines. You want to make sure you keep the area around the eye moisturized and keep the skin soft. The REVIVE Eye Rescue Serum does just that. It rescues. With ingredients from the Amazon Rain Forest, it will combat fine lines and reduce puffiness and dark circles. Keep your guard up with an eye serum and protect against noticeable signs of premature aging. Tired eyes look like aged eyes, so it's time to rescue those bad boys.
