How do you know which are the best grooming products to use? When it comes to taking care of your skin, you first need to know what skin type you have.
Your skin type will either be oily, normal or dry or a combination of both.
This skin type requires products that will provide moisture without oil, to help reduce the likelihood of acne breakouts. Look for products that are oil-free or, even more preferable, have been specifically designed for oily skin.
To keep dry skin smooth and bright in appearance, look for products that specify they provide long term hydration. For dry, flaking skin you may need to combine serums or oils with a hydrating moisturiser.
Combination skin means you may have patches of oily skin, usually around the forehead and nose (the T zone), but drier cheeks. Products designed for dry skin may cause breakouts in the areas that are oily and products for oily or normal skin may make dry skin conditions worse, so if possible find products designed for combination skin.
GROOMING WITH OR WITHOUT FACIAL HAIR
Depending on the style of facial hair you favour, there are various products to help your skin and keep your hair looking its best.
Shaving skin will make your skin more prone to breakouts and ingrowing hairs. To prevent this you should use shaving products that provide your skin with extra moisture. If you suffer from ingrowing hairs, there are specific products that can help prevent this.
Although great for creating definition, stubble may also cause ingrowing hairs which means it is advisable to use a natural exfoliant a couple of times a week to help lift up the hair from the root bed and prevent this.
Facial hair will protect your skin, though it is advisable to use specialised beard products to help keep hair soft if you choose to grow a beard. This will make grooming and shaping your beard quicker and easier in addition to making it feel nicer to the touch (yep, think of your partner here!).
