Deep cleansing is a good option for just about everyone. It is one of those skincare techniques than cut right through some of the more resistant skin problems that we can all have. Unfortunately, many men seem relatively resistant to the idea of exercising good skincare. The reasons are largely cultural, but it is a shame that so many people would choose not to look their best because actively taking good care of one’s skin is considered to fly in the face of cultural values. So many famous men already do it that one would think the negative association would fade. While we can’t make it go away, we can encourage men that good skincare just serves to help them look more attractive. The deep cleanse in particular can be a good way for many men to start. While slightly more complex than a standard cleanse, it can lay the foundation for exploring good skincare in a healthy fashion.
That Extra Push
Here’s a little secret for the men in the audience before we go any further: you probably need this more than you think. Everyone’s skin is directly affected by the hormones in their body. Anyone with higher testosterone levels runs into a few more problems with their skin than average. This is typically due to the fact that your skin secretes your natural oils at a higher rate. Additionally, higher testosterone levels mean that your pores are actually less constricted. This is partly why more oil gets secreted and also part of the problem as well. This combination means that more dirt, debris, and dead skin cells get caught in your skin and can end up clogging your pores. Good skincare is very important in this situation as otherwise most of your pores will be highly visible and detract from your appearance. Fortunately, a good double cleanse goes a long way towards helping to set things right.
How You Do It
The actual process of a double cleanse isn’t that difficult. You just need two separate kinds of cleanser to help see your through: an oil-based cleanser and a chemical or water-based cleanser. The distinctive is important as you’re going to be tackling your skin problems in two ways. You’re going to start a double cleanse with a basic rinse of your face. Use lukewarm water to splash your face and get it wet. Let it drop naturally. You want your skin a little wet for this, but not soaking wet. Once you’ve rinsed, start by using the oil-based cleanser. It will actually help you break apart your skin’s natural oils easier and let everything else reach your skin a little easier. Be gentle while doing this. It needs to be rubbed it, but not excessively. After using the oil-based cleanser, rinse again and apply the next cleanser. Make sure it is a gentle cleanser. This second one will help get everything the oil-based cleanser misses and be able to get deeper into your skin. The end result should be, after another rinse, properly clean skin that offers a good basis for further skincare.
Benefits of a Double Cleanse
Yes, a double cleanse is a bit of work and can go outside of one’s comfort zone, but men need to do it too. Cleaning your skin like this will help it take care of itself a little better too. Less inflamed skin tends to be more attractive, has an overall smoother appearance, and contributes a generally clean appearance that helps one to look professional and like one cares about one’s health. The key benefit is that the double cleanse can act like a nice “reset” for your skin if you’ve never gotten into skincare or have fallen out of the habit. Starting from comparatively fresh skin let’s you begin a standard skincare routine from a good beginning with little to no buildup on your skin to get caught beneath products. In the end, it offers the chance to create the firm foundation necessary to take proper care of one’s appearance. Double cleansing regularly can even help to purge and minimize difficult to manage conditions that rely on your skin being unclean to thrive. It is a good idea for everyone to try at least occasionally.
While many men aren’t as keen on skincare as others, there’s always a chance to learn the value of good skincare. It can help you look and feel your best when you’ve gotten used to feeling like you don’t look as good as your could. Good skincare can also help you reduce any long-lasting or regularly annoying skin conditions that make life that much more annoying. Just try to remember that doing nothing for your skin is far worse than trying a double cleanse.
