Looking handsome fast doesn’t have to be a myth, as long as you make the effort to understand your complexion type and implement the appropriate grooming regime. You’ll be surprised at the world of difference it makes just by washing your face twice daily with a cleanser, before proceeding to slap on some moisturizer. You might have a toned body from all those gym sessions, you might have a well-stocked wardrobe of perfectly fitted clothes. Now, please don’t waste it; be the complete package by having a head-turning, handsome face to boot.


1)     Drop The Bar of Soap

Gentlemen, you need to use facial cleanser to cleanse your face. Keep the body soap for what it’s for: the body.  As the skin on the body is thicker and rougher than on the face, facial cleansers are gentler and more effective in terms of removing dirt, oil and impurities. To maximize this step, massage the cleanser over your face in circular motion for at least 1 minute.


2)     Power Toner

Most gents forget about using Toner after cleansing. The toner helps to further clean up the pores and prevent them from being clogged up with dirt and grime, breaking out (we did it again, fun puns) into problems like blackheads and pimples. Men are born with larger pores than women, so this step is extremely crucial if you want to purify and reduce pore size.


3)     Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize

It’d be quite the shocker if moisturizer is still a faraway concept to you gents today. It should be a basic necessity in your facial grooming regime, especially so given our crazy, manic lifestyles. Our skin is fast losing hydration from prolonged exposure to air-conditioning, UV from computers and the environment. Dehydrated skin will become dull and age easily. Moisturizer replenishes that, well, moisture and shields your skin from external aggressors. Some moisturizers, such as those from Biotherm Homme, contain extra benefits such as oil-control, brightening and anti-ageing.


4)     If You’re Not Using Sunblock Already, This Clip Will Convince You

We all need sunblock like we do a good juicy steak! UV rays from the sun damages your skin cells and makes your skin look dull, causing uneven skin tone and early ageing signs such as wrinkles and dark spots.


Are you making a trip down to your nearest grooming counter already?


5)     You Don’t Steal From Your Girlfriend’s Dresser Because… 

The man and his skinMen’s skin is different from women’s skin. I mean, we wouldn’t be seeing space on supermarket counters reserved for men’s facial products would we? Customized skincare ranges for men is significantly more effective for solving men’s complexion woes.

Now start getting your daily grooming regime down to a pat and put your best face forward. Your girlfriend will be proud of you.
