Few things are better than a great haircut for looking your best, but trust us as your Lombard, IL barbershop – looking good requires way more than a haircut. One element of looking good and staying healthy that many men may neglect is skin care. The truth is that the quality of your skin is hugely important to how you look, and keeping skin healthy over time takes some effort on your part. With that in mind, here are 18|8’s top tips for keeping your skin healthy, happy, and looking great.
Skin Care Tips From Your Barber Near Hinsdale, IL
Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize
Moisturizing is a critical part of a healthy skin care routine. It’s all too easy for skin to dry out, especially in the winter months. If it gets bad enough, this dryness can cause roughness, flaking, and even cracking. Use a light moisturizer regularly, especially after a hot shower. If you find it’s not enough, don’t be scared of switching to a stronger moisturizer or using a moisturizer more frequently – different skin types will have different moisture needs.
Drink Water. Lots of It.
In addition to being good for your skin, drinking plenty of water is just good life advice in general. Water makes everything easier for your body, including hydrating the skin and keeping it looking fresh. Try to drink at least 6-8 glasses of water throughout the day to keep your skin, body, and brain happy and healthy.
Always Use Sunscreen
Most guys only lather on sunscreen if they’re headed for a day at the beach. But when it comes to good skin, sunscreen is a must. Using a light sunscreen every day will protect your skin from wrinkles, fine lines, and even skin cancer that can be caused by long-term sun exposure – so pick a good sunscreen and make a habit of using it.
