Cleanse: Tea Tree Oil Face Washes

As a guy you probably aren’t as partial to all the floral scents women may be more into, so choosing a cleanser with a natural, earthy scent will probably be best.

A tea tree oil face wash is the ideal scent for you, but did you know that tea tree oil is also fantastic for your skin?

Tea tree oil will help to keep your pores clean and clear, which is important because men tend to have larger pores, slightly oilier skin and are more prone to breakouts and ingrown hairs as a result of shaving.

Lather up your skin twice a day with an organic tea tree facial wash, rinse with lukewarm water and pat dry with a clean towel.

Exfoliate

As mentioned above, shaving can put you at risk for breakouts and ingrown hairs, so exfoliation is super important to clear any dirt and grime out of your pores so you’re less likely to deal with these common skin care issues.

Always opt for a natural and gentle exfoliant that will get the job done without scratching or irritating your skin. Use an exfoliator once a week if you have sensitive skin or up to three times a week if your skin is normal. You could even use a daily exfoliant every morning before you shave if ingrown hairs are a real issue for you.

Moisturize/Sunscreen

Don’t even think about going about your day before you’ve applied a good moisturizer and sunscreen to your face.

Moisturizer helps to balance your skin and keep pollutants out by adding a protective layer on the surface of the skin. Look for antioxidant-rich ingredients like Vitamin E and Green tea to neutralize free radicals on contact.

Also, a natural SPF is incredibly important to help protect your skin from UV rays that can increase your risk of aging and speed up the signs of aging.
