Slyly stealing your sister’s de tan scrub from the cupboard? Well, there’s no need, because skin care is not just for women and it makes you no less of a man if you admit it. We know it’s not easy to discuss face packs or scrubs with your boys, so here are some super easy ways to keep your face and skin clean in the scorching heat.
1. Wash up & Shower :
Just using shower gel or soap on your body is not enough; use an oil free face wash to rid your face of all the excess oil and dust. Washing your face is not just hygienic but also helps maintain the body temperature by keeping you refreshed and cool. Cleaning your skin is vital as it prevents clogging of pores from all the pollution and smoke we are exposed to. This also helps you keep those ugly heat pimples at bay!
2. Sunblock. Always :
We cannot emphasize the importance of sunblock enough, be it any season. Ultraviolet rays from the sun affect your skin and steal the shine from your face making it look lifeless and patchy. Apply sunscreen with an SPF of more than 15 mixed with your everyday lotion before stepping outside. You can wash it off at the end of your day and moisturize after. This process may seem tedious but you will thank your younger self later for this little effort that can save your skin.

The HE waterless face wash comes in small travel sized packaging, so just take a small dollop in your palm and apply it to your face. The best part is you don’t need any water to wash it off, just take your hanky or a tissue and wipe it off for a clean fresh looking face! It’s hassle-free and perfect for the heat, but don’t forget to apply some sunblock after.

4. Exfoliate :
Exfoliation is a man’s best friend because it means you get rid of all that dead skin. Imagine you have millions of bacteria hidden from the naked eye sitting on your face! Exfoliation allows your pores to open and breathe properly. Use a good quality exfoliating scrub for your face and a loofah for your body.
