Keep the Routine Simple
Men have their routines they follow throughout the day; when they get ready for work or go to the gym, it’s part of them managing their busy lives. So, it’s slow and straightforward when you introduce a skincare routine to your partner.
One of the ways to encourage your man to start a skincare routine is by incorporating a couple of products and suggesting they use them during one of their other routines to make it easy to start.
Place Face Wash in the Shower
If your partner has a hard time adapting to using skincare, you can put their cleansers and exfoliators in the shower with them. It’ll help them seamlessly begin washing their face while they continue with their typical shower routine. From there, they can finish their skincare routine with moisturizer and SPF.
Introduce Him to SPF
Sun Protection Factor, or SPF, is an essential part of shielding the skin from the sun. SPF causes UVA and UVB to bounce off the skin and prevent premature wrinkles, aging, fine lines, and hyperpigmentation.
So, showing your partner how important it is to protect their skin matters, primarily if they work outdoors in the hot sun. Just make sure he applies it after he moisturizes.
Have Him Try Toner
Between cleansing and moisturizing the skin, applying toner will help their skin quality. Not only will it help balance the natural pH in the skin, but it will also prepare the skin for serums, treatment products, and moisturizers. You can keep his progress up by complimenting his skin, as well.
Have Him Apply Moisturizer
After cleansing and toning the face, finishing up with a moisturizer will leave his skin hydrated and soft to the touch. Moisturizer provides an occlusive layer to keep serums and toners pushed deep into the skin. It’s also great to start using beard oil to keep your facial hair hydrated and frizz-free.
Introduce Serums Later
Try introducing him to serums after your man has become used to cleansers, moisturizers, and SPF. Serums are basically concentrated formulations applied before moisturizing and help with specific skin needs.
For example, vitamin C helps balance skin oils, reduces hyperpigmentation, and helps with acne breakouts. Serums are a great way to target skin problems and needs without going for professional help.
Starting a skincare routine takes time with trial and error. So, be patient with your partner and help them with any questions. Before they know it, their skin will become healthy and rejuvenated.
