Combat Dry Skin
Dry skin can seriously affect your complexion by trapping dirt underneath dead skin cells and leaving your face feeling tight and sore. It can also make you appear older and therefore affects your overall confidence. Here at Mankind, lesson 7 of our style guides is all about combating dry skin!
Step 1 – Wash How You Go!
When it’s cold outside it’s tempting to start your day with a long hot shower. Bad move if you’re suffering from dry skin! That’s because piping hot water tends to strip the skin of its natural, protective oils causing it to dry out. And when that happens skin loses its ability to hold on to what moisture it does have, triggering a continual cycle of water-loss. The result is dry, flaky and irritated skin. Not a good look!
So begin your face-saving grooming routine by washing or showering in warm (rather that hot) water and swap harsh, skin-drying soaps in favor of gentler glycerin-based facial cleansers like Lab Series for Men Multi-Action Face Wash which are specifically formulated for dry skin. Apply a small amount, cleanse thoroughly and wash off all residues with plenty of cool running water.
