    1. Wash your face with a good cleanser. This is a no-brainer. But the reality is, either you guys are doing it all wrong or just not doing it at all. Men are often guilty of taking super hot showers and using harsh soaps or face scrubs, according to dermatologist and psychiatrist Dr. Amy Wechsler. She adds, "This makes your skin dry and when your skin is dry you appear wrinkly and much older." Not quite the look you're going for, right?

    "It is important to have a gentle cleanser that will cleanse the skin from the dirt and oil that can accumulate," says Dr. Howard Brooks, a Washington, D.C.-based dermatologist. "Aveeno Men's Face Wash is a perfect choice for daily use. It contains colloidal oatmeal that will hydrate while it cleanses."

    2. Stop buying cheap razors. According to Thomas Cheung, master barber at The Art of Shaving at Tysons Corner Center in McLean, VA, most men shave five times a week. (How do you do it?) "A quality razor can be a lifetime item, so choose your weapon wisely. Choose a razor that fits your skin sensitivity and beard coarseness, your face will thank you," says Cheung.

    If you're going the drugstore route, Dr. Wechsler suggests pumping the brakes before buying a razor with several blades. "With these types, you're more likely to get razor burn or ingrown hairs because the extra blades pull the hairs below the skin a little too deep."

    A moisturizing shaving gel is key to providing a barrier of protection while shaving, so slather that on. Shave in the shower or immediately afterwords, as Cheung states that "the facial hairs are much softer from the warm water and steam." Plus, it eliminates having to clean up a dirty sink when you've got company.

    3. Make after-shave your new best friend. "After-shave hydrates and soothes the skin; it also seals in the skin after a nice shave," says Cheung. "Your after-shave should be alcohol-free because alcohol dries your skin -- plain and simple."

    4. Don't skip the facial moisturizer. Facial hair can be sexy on a guy, but what really turns us on is when our faces touch and it doesn't feel like sandpaper. Moisturizing daily will get you soft, kissable skin. "Fragrance-free products are easy because they have no smell and aren't considered 'girly,'" says Dr. Wechsler. "Cetaphil is a good moisturizer option. And Clinique for Men is actually the same as the original Clinique products -- it's just in a grey bottle."

    5. Never leave home without applying sunscreen. If you can find a moisturizer that contains SPF of 30 or higher, then you're way ahead. But it doesn't hurt to keep a separate bottle of sunscreen handy. Plus, it lets us know that you actually care about your appearance. Bonus points!

    Men who don't use sunscreen increase their risk of getting sun damage, which may result in redness, irritation, extra blood vessels and skin cancer. Stay forever young (or close to it) by applying sunscreen every single day.

    If you don't want to have skin problems, use pure chimp super cleanser, it's gentle but effective.
    It's 100% natural and handmade in UK and it costs not much.

    Keep your face clean at all times and use a mild cleanser that doesn't cause too much dryness. Since facial skin is more sensitive than the rest of the body's, therefore do not use towels on your face. Towels are too rough for facial skin and might have germs that harm the skin. Always use Rose water sprays to keep your face naturally moisturised yet not greasy.

    Though men pay less attention towards the skin care still it is required to get some attention. But this is quite important to understand that the man has different skin as compared to woman so better go for the men oriented products and go for the natural products after a proper research
