Summer Skin Care Tips For Men

Team TME is yet convinced that men understand the importance (and actual enjoyment) of “luxury” grooming, let alone the basics of skin care. That’s not to stay that men folk are stupid, we believe that it’s a simple issue of not necessarily knowing what to do. We find it quite endearing when one of our “manly-men” stop by our office, poke around in the well-stocked TME closet and shyly ask what a particular men’s grooming product is for.

There seems to be some sort of silly shame in asking (kind of like for driving directions), so Team TME has put together a few easy to understand tips … just for the guys! The cooler months can leave your skin super dry, so if you don’t currently have a skincare regimen now is as good a time as any to begin one. A skin care regimen is seriously simple and you’re going to look and feel better once you begin one. Our editor had the opportunity to interview Hollywood’s leading stuntman, Bobby Holland Hanton, who offers quick and simple skin care tips. And this comes from a guy who has an insane schedule!

TME has also interviewed Dr. Jeffrey Benabio, on several occasions, who advises that you resist the temptation to take long, hot showers. Those showers may feel fantastic while you’re in there, but they’re actually hydration stealers. Limit your shower to no more than 15 minutes and keep the temperature warm. After your shower, you need to get moisture back into your skin so, we give you permission to steal your partner’s moisturizer and lotion… until you go buy your own!

Shaving is another issue for men. You guys just tend to be hairier. Dr. Jeff advises that guys prep their skin with a pre-shave gel. Because you’re dragging a blade across the skin of your face, you want to do everything you can to prepare and soften your stubble. Also, after-shave care is super important. Follow up your shave with a soothing balm that rehydrates skin.

You only get one face, so you gotta take care of your skin. Take care to use a moisturizer that contains SPF 30 or higher, use sunscreen when you’re playing outside (even in the winter), and don’t forget that pretty pout! Use a lip balm that contains SPF 30 or higher and a crazy but effective hack is to dab lip balm on your eyelids when you’re playing sports.
