Part of being a well groomed man is taking care of your skin as well. One of the best ways to protect your skin is by investing in some UV protection for your face. If you think that you are out of harm’s way due to having a desk job, think again. As if it wasn’t bad enough to get hit by some serious rays at the beach, we now have to protect our skin against the energy efficient CFL bulbs that have recently been linked to skin cell damage. What does a guy have to do to protect his skin from the added dangers of office life? Well, an easy place to start is by protecting the skin on your face.
In order to protect your skin properly, it’s best to go through a few of your regular skin maintenance steps first. Start by taking care of your skin with your shaving routine. With the right routine, shaving can remove dead skin and keep your face clean. Make sure that you work a great pre shave into your daily skin care ritual.
Once you clear your skin with your pre and post shave, it’s time to prep your face for the day to come. All kidding aside, if you spend most of the day in the office, you can still benefit from using a face moisturizer with a little bit of SPF added to it. Craig the Barber from The Mens Room blog recommends Kiehl’s Facial Fuel SPF 15. As with most skin care products, you don’t have to sacrifice quality for a reasonable price. You can also find skin care products with SPF protection for men as well. Every Man Jack is a brand that you can pick up at Target, and they make a face lotion and a lip balm with SPF 15.
