Lather up!

A good splash in the morning not only wakes you up, it also helps get rid of dead skin cells that make your face look dull. Use a wash with glycolic acid, both in the morning and before bed for a deeper clean that also stimulates the growth of new skin cells.

Use moisturizers

While your face is still damp after cleansing, apply moisturizer to seal in moisture. Most face lotions are oil-based, which work well for guys with normal skin. But if you have oily skin or are prone to breakouts, look for a water-based product.

Stay hydrated

The morning cleanse and moisturizers are only half of the hydration equation. You also have to drink a lot of water because the skin needs moisture inside out. Also, keep track on how much alcohol and caffeine you’re drinking because these drinks keep you dehydrated.

Think about wrinkles early

Even though you still think you’re young, adding a retinol cream to your daily routine will help minimize the fine lines and wrinkles. In addition, retinol boosts cell growth and collagen production, which improves your skin tone.

Lessen your sugar intake

It’s okay to indulge every now and then but always make sure to keep the sugar intake monitored. High-sugar diets can lead to acne breakouts.

Don’t soak up too much sun

Damaging sun rays speed up the aging process by slowing down collagen production and cell growth and forcing skin to lose its elasticity. It’s good to always have a bottle of sunscreen handy. Look for something with an SPF 15 or higher.

Get enough sleep

Sleeping for a good 8 hours gives your cells plenty of time to fix the day’s wear and tear. That means heading off wrinkles, fine lines, and breakouts.

Eat fruits and vegetables

Remember to eat your daily dose of veggies and fruits. These contain antioxidants that nourish your skin and help fight off free radicals.
