Why men's skin care matters

As a Floridian, the most important thing for us to maintain great skin health. It’s also one of the hardest things to do when trying to juggle the hustle and bustle of the excitement of summer.

It's all about creating a daily routine. Keep essentials next to your sink to help remind you of your routine to make sure you have healthy, glowing skin all summer long.

The absolute most important skin care technique a Floridian can keep in mind is to wear sunblock at all times. Start the day with a sunblock with an SPF of 75 and be sure that it has UVA and UVB protection.

Keeping hydrated is imperative to endure Florida’s heat. Starting the day by drinking a full glass of water will help remind you that drinking water throughout the day is an important part of your summer routine.

Always keep your skin clean. Start the day with a light cleanser then cleanse your skin again before you go to bed. It’s important to wash the day’s fun off of your skin.

Exfoliating your skin is also important to minimize ingrown hairs after shaving or waxing, as it also helps your skin better absorb moisturizers. Keep a light exfoliator by your sink for your face and one in your shower for the rest of your body.

The last great tip to care for your skin in Florida’s summer heat is to get a facial. Facials help to rejuvenate and revitalize skin and correct any imperfections the inevitable heat may cause. Think of them like haircuts: you trust a professional to cut your hair, why don’t you do the same for your face?Facials usually include cleansing, exfoliation, massage, extractions, and a mask. It might sound similar to the routine you follow at home, but where your at-home regimen is like washing your car, a facial is like going to the car wash. You don’t have to get a facial often to see big results. In a perfect world, you should get a facial every four to six weeks. But realistically, get one at the change of seasons.
