Top 5 Beauty Tips For Boys
The best way to maintain your skin health, regardless of whether you’re a man or woman, is to follow some easy beauty tips and avoid using damaging products on your skin, no matter how much they’re advertised as natural and harmless. In this article, we share the top 5 beauty tips for boys looking to preserve their youthful glow without having to spend hours in front of the mirror each day.
1) Choose a Natural Deodorant
If you’re trying to go natural, it can be hard to find products that fit your lifestyle. One of these areas is skincare and cosmetics. Unfortunately, most beauty and skincare products contain chemicals that could cause irritation. For example, most antiperspirants contain aluminum salts—ingredients used to block sweat glands and prevent sweating. But what they’re also doing is blocking your pores, which ultimately leaves bacteria free to grow on your skin. This can lead to infections that look a lot like acne or eczema. Many deodorants are made with similar ingredients so instead of reaching for an antiperspirant look for a natural option instead!
2) Moisturize Every Day
Do you often find your skin feeling itchy and dry? Don’t ignore it—you could be suffering from a lack of moisture. Look for lotions that are non-greasy, fragrance-free, and hypoallergenic; look for those with hyaluronic acid or hydrating ingredients like aloe vera and glycerin. If you aren’t sure which products will work for you, try visiting a professional at a beauty store who can recommend something suited to your skin type. And remember: Even if you don’t like applying lotion yourself, your girlfriend probably will!
3) Stay Away From These Products
The truth is, many guys—even those who care about grooming—don’t know what products will work for them and which ones to avoid. To help you separate fact from fiction, we’ve created a list of beauty product myths that need to die. Some are just silly old wives’ tales, while others have been proven time and again as harmful to skin or hair. Read on to see if any of these sound familiar—and if so, ditch them for good!
4) Don’t Touch Your Face
It’s a no-brainer that girls need to clean their faces daily, but did you know that guys have different skincare needs? But even if it was just a pimple or something seemingly minor, your hand probably wasn’t helping. Hands often carry dirt and germs from many places. If you’re not washing them regularly, you’re also transferring all those nasty things to your face—where they can cause acne and other infections. So make sure you’re washing your hands with soap (and water) before touching your face and after going anywhere dirty. You should also wash your hands right away if you touch anything infected; otherwise, you may be spreading germs around. Even if you’re alone at home, there are plenty of ways to get dirty!

5) Have A Healthy Skin Routine
While skincare can be a bit of a bore, it’s important to maintain a healthy skin routine. While it may seem like women are more concerned with how they look, there are actually plenty of ways to take care of your skin that you probably don’t know about. The best beauty tips for boys start at home and having a face wash and moisturizer in your shower isn’t just for girls! These products will help prevent blemishes from happening when things get rough. Speaking of showers, try scrubbing your body down with loofah (or non-loofah) every once in a while to remove dead skin cells and give yourself a fresh new glow.
