The Lazy Guy's Guide to Skin Care The Lazy Guy's Guide to Skin Care The Lazy Guy's Guide to Skin Care

Let’s face it: Skin care isn’t exactly the most popular subject among guys—so there’s no chance a 10-step high maintenance skin care routine would be, either. But just because you’re busy—or you’re really not all that interested in trying the latest and greatest trends—doesn’t mean you should skip out on taking care of your skin altogether. The good news is, you don’t need a high-maintenance 10-step skin care routine to get the job done. All it takes is following a few simple steps each day to help keep your complexion in tip-top shape. Let’s get started!

Step 1: Start with Cleanser

Regardless of your gender or age, it’s always a good idea to cleanse your skin morning and night to help get rid of dirt and excess oils that have built up on the surface. The L'Oréal Paris Men Expert™ Hydra Energetic Extreme Cleanser Infused with Charcoal has a black texture that turns into a rich white foam when you use it. The formula acts as a magnet on skin to capture and get rid of all kinds of dirt (like impurities and excess sebum) and fight five problems caused by daily city grime: dirt, oily skin, dullness, clogged pores, and sticky touch. Gently massage the cleanser onto your skin, concentrating on your forehead, nose, and chin, since these areas tend to be oilier than the rest of your face, then rinse thoroughly.

Step 2: Moisturize and Protect

After cleansing, the next step in your skin care routine should be moisturizing—and if it’s the morning, you should reach for a moisturizer that’s formulated with broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher, which can help protect against UVA and UVB rays. Yes, it’s important to wear sunscreen year-round, since you can still get burned even on cloudy days! The L'Oréal Paris Men Expert™ Vita Lift SPF 15 Anti-Wrinkle & Firming Moisturizer is formulated with broad-spectrum SPF 15 sunscreen and has a non-greasy, non-sticky feel. Editor’s tip: Apply your moisturizer to damp skin after cleansing to help lock in hydration—and don’t forget your neck!

Step 3: Pay Attention to Your Eyes

Your eyes can be a dead giveaway that you’re exhausted, which is why it could be a good idea to add a separate eye product to your skin care routine. The L'Oréal Paris Men Expert™ Hydra-Energetic Ice Cold Eye Roller has a cooling, massaging effect to help provide de-puffing action to reduce the look of under-eye bags. Formulated with vitamin C and caffeine, this eye serum helps fight the five signs of tired eyes: dark circles, eye bags, puffiness, tired appearance, and roughness. Gently roll the applicator under your eye starting from the bridge of your nose outward toward your temple to massage the entire eye area. You can use it morning and night. You can also store an eye cream in your fridge for a similar cool treat.

Step 4: Show Your Lips Some Love

This about it: Dry lips aren’t exactly the most attractive, are they? It turns out that your lips need some separate attention, too. Keep a hydrating lip balm on hand so that you can reapply whenever needed. Bonus points if it’s formulated with broad-spectrum sunscreen!

Step 5: Use Post-Shave Products

Does your skin feel irritated after shaving? If you rush out the door without using an after shave balm, you could be doing a serious disservice to your skin. The L'Oréal Paris Men Expert™ Hydra Energetic After Shave Balm helps to fight the five signs of shaving discomfort: razor burn, tightness, irritation, redness, and excessive dryness. It’s formulated with vitamin E and broad-spectrum SPF 15 sunscreen and helps provide long-lasting hydration. Once you’re done shaving, apply it all over your face and neck and you’re good to go!

So, there you have it—these are the five steps you should follow to help keep your skin looking and feeling its best. Who said skin care was only for the girls?
