Tips To Soothe Skin After Exfoliating and Scrubbing for Men

To exfoliate or not to exfoliate is a question many men have asked themselves at least once in their lives. The answer is yes. When it comes to exfoliation, most people do not know how to do it properly. And for those who do, they fail to take care of their skin post a good scrub. For the best results after an exfoliation session, it is necessary to follow the right skincare regimen.

Though exfoliation cleanses your face, it also opens up your pores. To prevent impurities and dust from settling on your skin, using the right products to close off your pores is the right way to go. Say goodbye to dull skin and dirty pores with these amazing products from NIVEA’s collection.

Wash Your Face - Before Or After Exfoliation?

Washing your face with the best face wash for men before a scrub is a good idea. This will remove the dirt and impurities from your skin and allow you to scrub the dead skin, blackheads, and whiteheads more effectively. By cleansing your face before exfoliating, your skin will be better prepared for moisturisation post the scrub.

Use the NIVEA Men All-In-1 Charcoal Facewash to reduce acne, excess oil, and dark spots. It is infused with natural charcoal extracts that help in oil control. It deeply cleanses your skin making it smooth and the methanol leaves behind a cooling sensation making your skin feel refreshed.

Applying The Right Face Cream

After a face cleanse and a good scrub, closing your pores with the best face cream for men is the next step. This can be done by moisturising your skin to keep it hydrated. Use the NIVEA Men’s Fresh Face Moisturiser Gel daily for clear and hydrated skin. This moisturiser comes in a unique non-sticky gel formula that instantly rejuvenates skin and leaves you feeling refreshed.

Sunscreen - Yay Or Nay?

When it comes to sunscreen, the answer is always Yay. You should always apply sunscreen when stepping out, regardless of the weather. In addition to dead skin, exfoliation gets rid of the finer layer on the skin and makes it vulnerable to sun damage. The UV rays from the sun can cause pigmentation and lead to damaged skin.

To combat this, use the NIVEA Men Oil Control Moisturiser. It comes with an ultra-light formula that hydrates skin and promotes healthy, non-greasy skin. The cream is infused with UV protection filters that provide protection from the darkening effects of the sun.

As for how often you should exfoliate your face, it is advisable to do it once a week since your face cannot withstand daily exfoliation. There are multiple DIY scrubs you can try for exfoliating at home. Ingredients like honey, aloe vera, Multani mitti, etc make for great scrubbers.
