Minimalist 2-step skincare for men

Men need skincare too. However, they prefer a minimalist approach to their routine, unlike us women who can take hours in the bathroom applying different skincare steps. With this in mind, Mary Kay made a multi-benefit 2-step daily #skincare specially made for #men. 

But as your beauty consultant, I would like to take you guys a notch higher by adding just one simple weekly step to ensure your pores are tightened, blackheads are removed and your oiliness is controlled. Which will also help reduce your acne breakouts. 

Here is the 2-step anti-aging skin care regimen for men. Plus 1 step on weekend – if you have oily skin

1. Cleansing 

When to do this? Every day – morning and night. 

Wash your face morning and night using MK Men Facial Cleanser. A clean face is a key to having good looking and healthy skin. Remember, never sleep without washing your face this is the big culprit for your oily skin and open, dirty pores. 

Wet your face, put a small amount of cleanser on your palm, dilute the cleanser and apply on your 5-focal points, lather your face from your chin, cheeks, side of the nose, around the eyes and forehead. Do not miss any portion. 

If you have a beard, better wash them longer to ensure dust and bacteria or virus that it caught is removed.

2. Moisturize and Protect

Hydrate your face using MK Men Advanced Facial Hydrator enriched with anti-aging ingredients that reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. MK Men Hydrator contains potent antioxidants that keep your skin protected from the build-up of free radicals which can damage or weaken your skin. 

MK Men Advanced Facial Hydrator also contains Broad Spectrum SPF 30 which protects your skin from harmful UV rays that can cause photoaging. 

Put a small amount of the product directly on to your face and spread them evenly. 

3. Exfoliate

When to do this? Once or Twice a week. Schedule it on Sunday with your love. 

Exfoliate your skin using Clear Proof Charcoal mask.

Active charcoal is known for its effectiveness in exfoliating dead skin and unclogging deep-seated dirt, toxins, impurities, and pimple-causing bacteria. This is great in withdrawing dirt and deep-seated debris within the pores leaving healthier and oil-free skin.

  • Wash your face first with MK Men Facial Wash. Keep it damp for the next step.
  • Put a pea size of the charcoal mask on your fingers (pinky finger, ring finger, and middle finger) or on a mask applicator brush then apply on to your face starting from the chin up to your cheeks then to your forehead.  
  • Let dry for 10-15 minutes.
  • Rinse your face with lukewarm water and tap dry using a clean face towel.
  • If you do this step before leaving the house, apply moisturizer. Else, you’re done.

This last step can be share with your partner for a more intimate self-care Sunday!
