Top Self-care Beauty Essentials For Men


Top self-care beauty essentials for men? Yep, you read right; it isn't only women who should have a beauty regimen. Men need to take care of themselves, too.  And guess what they are!

Times have changed as men are taking a lot more pride in their physical appearance. Just like they would not let their car or home become run down because of the lack of proper maintenance, men realize upkeep similar to their home is needed for themselves!

So if you are a man reading this or want to share with that special male friend in your life, continue reading on some top self-care beauty essentials for men.

Look At The Ingredients In Your Products
Before we start with some product suggestions, we want to point out that you want to be mindful of the ingredients. Yes, I know you may feel like you need a dictionary every time you look at the ingredient list. But an effective beauty routine doesn't have to be complicated.

For example, if you have sensitive skin, you want to stay away from products that have artificial fragrances and synthetics in them as these ingredients can cause your skin to become dry and irritated. Also, you want to avoid alcohol-based products as they tend to be overdrying.

These tips can also be applied toward purchasing any beauty product; read the label and remember that just because it smells good does not mean it is good for your body!

Implement A Skincare Routine
As I always say, men have skin too. And if you're a guy that merely washes your face with soap and water and think that counts as your skincare, it's time for you to reconsider your skincare game.

While I am not suggesting going out and purchasing all kinds of skincare products to have a successful regimen, it is essential to implement a routine with the right skincare products.

You see, the skin is our largest organ and performs many functions essential to staying healthy beside just looking good.  Simply put, the skin is our first line of defense against environmental factors. Meaning it serves as a barrier between our organs and the outside world.  So why wouldn't you do everything you can to guard this protective barrier?

A man's skin tends to be thicker than a women's; however, when it comes to grooming and beauty products, they are similar, apart from packaging and the scents used.   So without further ado, check out some of my top self-care beauty essentials for men.

Top 6 Self-care Beauty Essentials For Men

Although shaving does exfoliate the skin, you want to make sure to add some additional exfoliation to help remove any impurities and dead skin cells. An excellent skincare approach is to exfoliate your face with a Sonic Cleansing device, like Michael Todd Beauty's Soniclear For Men, before a shave. This will allow you to get a tighter shave, which equals smoother skin. Also, cleansing and exfoliation before you shave will cut down on the likelihood of ingrown hairs.

Your Skin May Be Clean But Is Your Towel?
After shaving and exfoliating your face, it's best to pat dry with a clean towel, but is your cloth clean? Washcloths can become an ideal nesting place for mildew, bacteria, and more. The last thing you want to be doing it putting this back on your clean shaved face and opened pores. Yes, this may seem simple, but you must use a clean, fresh towel after each shave as aside from infections and blemishes, bacteria can cause inflammation, which can lead to premature aging! In lamen's terms a dirty towel can cause you to age quicker!!! NEXT...

A towel to consider is MUE. Do not let the name fool you. It is not just used to remove makeup.  One side is for erasing, meaning it removes all traces of dirt or makeup. The other side is for exfoliating. This bad boy is reusable, machine washable, & lasts 3 to 5 years.

The Wrong Water Temperature Can Age You
Do you know that feeling after a long day, all you can think about is a hot shower? Or even using hot water to shave with?  Well, newsflash, that hot water can cause premature aging!  WTH? Yep, while it may feel good, your skin is screaming at you as heat causes inflammation, which can break down collagen and elastin, making you age more quickly, and no one wants that, not even a man!

All kidding aside, while this brand does use sophomoric humor in their advertising, they have taken a more open and confident male culture that results in guys being way more proactive around self-care and health. Hence, they've partnered with the Testicular Cancer Society 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization to raise awareness about the most common form of cancer in men aged 15-35 and provide help and support to fighters and survivors, and caregivers.

Best teeth whitner for men by barbies beauty bits

Pearly Whites
In the world of selfies, social media, and more, people see a snapshot of your teeth, whether you want them to you or not. And while you may be brushing your teeth regularly, a smile is a lasting impression, and if you have discolored teeth, it can come across as a dirty mouth to others, just saying!

In case you did not know, your teeth can become stained from drinking coffee, smoking, even some types of food can stain your teeth. Hence you want to look for a product that contains baking soda and teeth whitener.

The cheapest place to start is with a whitening toothpaste. But I suggested taking it up a notch and try the Sparkle White Teeth Whitening Kit & Pen Combo.
