- Your aftershave
You shave, then slap on the same fresh aftershave. It smells good, stings a little, it’s what med do. It’s also full of alcohol that is drying out your skin. You’re a modern man. Trade the aftershave for a post-shave cream that moisturises.
- Your pillowcase
Sleep is a chance to rest and recharge. It’s also when your skin refreshes by letting go of dead skin cells. Which stay on your pillowcase.
Ever wake up with a random breakout? This could be why.
- Hot showers
Hot showers feel great but your skin hates them. The heat strips natural oils from your skin. A simple way to avoid this is not to shower longer than 10 minutes and keep the water at a lukewarm temperature. Also, after your shower make sure you moisturize.
- Drinking too much coffee
What would we do without our morning coffee? But we’re sorry to say caffeine is known to cause dry skin and wrinkles. Slowly cut down your daily intake, and stay hydrated throughout the day. Aim to drink at least 2 litres of water a day to keep skin fresh.
- Lack of sleep
If you have a very busy schedule you don’t get enough sleep, your skin will probably respond. Three days of no more than six hours of sleep will cause dark circles, early signs of aging, and make your skin duller overall.
