From fighting your first acne to showing the first sign of a wrinkle, it’s hard to keep up with a good skincare routine. If you think using a one-all product is your perfect idea to beat the above, think again. JCPenney brings a wide range of men’s skincare products that fight against the most common issues. By this, we don’t mean you need to spend hours in front of the mirror to get the skin texture you desire. Just a splash, dab, and dash is all that’s required.
Maintaining a good skin texture takes more than just washing your face with a soap that has been lying around and hoping it works out. You need the perfect cleanser that targets your skin type (dry or oily) and doesn’t damage your skin barrier. If you have dry skin, pick cleansers that are packed with moisturizing minerals and for oily skin, consider cleansers with oil-controlling ingredients like salicylic acid.
A few of them take toners as nothing but second cleansers, which pull extra dirt and oil off your skin. But toners are more than that. They restore the PH balance after cleansing your face, especially if you’re using a harsh face wash. If you are tackling oily skin and struggling to get rid of acne, toners can help you keep your skin clear. All you need to do is use a cotton pad to dab some toner and gently wipe your face.
An eye mask is your personal arsenal that can fix a lot of problems. Dark circles? You can scoff them off. Puffy eyes from an all-nighter? It can help get rid of them. Starting to see the first signs of wrinkles? It can send them packing. An eye mask has all the magical ingredients to make you look fresh and lock the moisture in. A few of them come with anti-aging peptides and natural extracts to firm the skin around your eyes.
The biggest reason most of us avoid moisturizer is that it feels heavy on the skin. No one wants something to be just splotched on our faces. But finding a moisturizer that works for you is not that difficult. Consider a light cream for everyday use that replenishes water loss and boosts collagen production. Slap it on after cleansing when the skin is still slightly damp to heal and seal in moisture.
No matter your skin tone or type, this is the most important final step that is usually forgotten or neglected. UV rays from the sun, which we all encounter every day (unless we are shut-ins or vampires), are not only harmful under long exposure but cause rapid aging as well. If you still live under the rock where you believe SPFs are greasy and sticky, think again. There are plenty of options that feel as light as the air. Pick the ones packed with skin-hydrating ingredients, and you’re good to go.
