Is caffeine actually GOOD for your skin?
May 29, 2017
Fellas, if you are still one of those guys who washes his face with a bar of soap and water, then it’s time to brush up your grooming game. Trust us, your skin will thank you for it.
Now we aren’t talking about going out and buying expensive creams you will never use, or ransacking your girlfriend's beauty cabinet (please). Taking care of your skin is as simple as cleansing, moisturising and following a few other lifestyle habits each day.
To make it easier (and because we know you are busy), we have created The Clean Sweep Skin Brush for Men. This revolutionary electric skin brush uses Vibra-Sonic™ technology to deep cleanse, exfoliate, and condition for stronger, clearer and more resilient skin that's ready for anything. Read on for our top tips to get your skin in shape.
1) Cleansing is Key:
Men’s skin is 30% thicker than women’s and therefore requires a stronger cleanse/ exfoliation to remove dead skin cells, dirt and impurities to keep your skin looking clear and fresh.
Cleansing is an incredibly important step in your skincare routine, and it is often one that is often overlooked (or replaced by that *ahem* bar of soap). Using a bar of soap or a heavy duty scrub can irritate the skin, and stimulate oil production causing breakouts.
To combat that tight, dry skin feeling post cleanse, we would recommend using a cream cleanser so as to not deplete the skin of natural oils. To supercharge your cleanse, apply the cleanser directly to your Clean Sweep deep cleansing brush and using circular strokes, glide over your face for 30 seconds. Skin is left super clean, stronger, and more resilient and you can even use it in the shower. Winning.
2) Invest in a good quality razor
A quality razor can last a lifetime, so choose your weapon wisely. Ensure that your razor fits your beard coarseness and skin sensitivity and your skin will thank you.
Whether you wear your beard with pride or prefer a smooth shave, The Clean Sweep can radically improve your grooming game. For the smooth shaven lads out there, the HydroPro brush head exfoliates the skin’s surface to prevent ingrown hairs and to prepare your skin for the closest shave ever.
For the bearded folk amongst us, never fear! The Clean Sweep's "TURBO" mode exfoliates beneath beards to soften and detangle your hair, and rid the skin of bacteria that thrives within facial hair, causing breakouts. Keep your glorious beard and keep your skin clear, strong and fresh.
3) Moisturise daily for younger looking skin
Do you moisturise your skin everyday? If not, you should. Using a moisturiser each day is a quick and easy way to help you look younger, improve skin’s elasticity, and to keep your skin hydrated.
The most effective time to moisturise, is straight after cleansing with your Clean Sweep when your pores have been opened and cleansed of all dirt and impurities. This allows for optimum moisturiser absorption for firm, clear skin.
4) Stay Hydrated
You’re probably sick of hearing this one, but this really is one of the most important things you can do for your skin (and overall health for that matter). Water helps to rid the body of toxins, and keeps you hydrated which leads to healthy, clear skin that behaves itself. Drink up lads.
5) Protect your skin from the sun
Want to stay forever young? The answer lies in protecting your skin from sun damage. Kill two birds in one stone by investing in a moisturiser that has an SPF in it. If there is one thing that will keep your skin youthful and wrinkle free for as long as possible, it’s sun protection.
There you have it, our top 5 skincare tips. Of course, healthy eating, exercise, avoiding alcohol etc also radically improves your skin- but we don't need to tell you that.
Happy Clean Sweeping!
