The list of things I should-do-more-of seems to get longer and longer as time passes. I guess this phenomena is called adulting?
I for sure should be flossing my teeth more, reading more, working out more and the list goes on including taking care of my skin. I can’t help you hack that sweat session or book list, but I can help with your skin.
Filling out your bracket is complicated, skin care is not. Having a skin care routine doesn't mean you have to sacrifice your man card or time. Sometimes, basic is good.
When: Morning and night (and if you shave, do it before shaving).
Why: To remove dead skin cells and other build-up on your skin. The less build-up on your skin, the fewer clogged pores and breakouts you’ll have. Also, giving your skin a pre-shave exfoliating scrub keeps ingrown hairs and razor bumps at bay.
How: Wet face, lather cleanser, wash off. We made you a video of our solid face wash. You’re welcome.
When: Morning, night and as needed
Why: The skin under your eyes is the thinnest of all the skin on your face. The signs of aging or a long night out will show up here first. Protecting under-eye skin from irritation from things like pollution can help reduce fine lines.
How: Using the Wake Up Eye Stick gently roll under eyes starting by your nose and moving toward the outside of your eye.
When: Morning and night.
Why: It will make your skin firmer, prevent water loss and provide an anti-aging effect. Starting in your 20’s your body makes less of the proteins that help your skin retain moisture. Give it a little help by hydrating morning and night, especially in the winter when the warmer climates make your skin drier (not to mention those high alpine altitudes).
How: Place a pea-sized amount of moisturizer in the palm of your hand. Rub your hands together and gently apply to your face in a circular motion, starting with your cheeks and moving to the rest of your face. You can even use our 2-in-1 Face Moisturizer and Eye Cream under your eyes by just dabbing a rice-sized amount under both eyes (in the direction of your nose to your temples).
