This is the concluding part of the male facial grooming series.
7. CLAY MASK
The greatest challenge of a clay mask for a man is actually getting to put it on and not be seen . Clay masking is something that can be done in 10 minutes early in the morning. Clay is very effective in toxin extraction, it removes dead skin , unclog pores , extracts excess oil and shine, it also helps cellular regeneration. A recommended clay mask is Aztec Secrets made of 100% natural calcium bentonite clay. Do not use clay with any additives, fragrances or animal products and definitely do not exercise with a clay mask or sleep with it still on, put on for 10 minutes, meditate, get up and wash it off. No one has to know.

8. SHAVING CREAM
|Shave from top to bottom not from the the centre|
Using a shaving cream when shaving is as old as time. Most guys get razor bumps when shaving cream is not used to shave . Gel based shaving cream are the best for preventing stubble from drying out and easing the shaving process by providing a cushion between the skin and the razor. Nivea for Men Q10 Energy Shaving Gel is one of the best shaving creams out there, that is not excessively thick like some other shaving creams which in turn makes it even more difficult to shave with. It is not advisable to shave daily, it is important to let your facial skin rest for at least 2 days before shaving again. Shave with three days intervals.
9. AFTER SHAVE

After shaves are mainly therapeutic moisturizing treatment intended to soothe and protect the facial skin from shaving irritation and razor burn. After shaves are supposed to be alcohol free formula and the good ones such as Baxter of California After Shave Balm, hydrates and nourishes the facial skin as it combats the serious dryness caused by shaving. It contains Glycerin and organic silicones combine with soothing aloe and allantoin and Natural healing ingredients such as tea tree oil and cooling menthol to renew, calm, and condition the facial skin also to help reduce shaving irritation.
10. LIP BALM
One of the major turn offs on a man’s face is chapped lips. Male facials would not be complete or done at all without including a lip balm for smooth , soft and good looking lips. The skin on the lips is very different from the facial skin because the skin of the lips lacks oil glands to regulate moisture content as well as melanin to shield the sun. These makes the lips naturally susceptible to dryness, cracking and scaling. Use Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Lip Moisturizer

During the Summers, a sunscreen might be one of the best accessories for men’s facial skin. The greatest clarion call for sunscreen would be that of Hugh Jackman who is presently recovering from yet another skin cancer scare. Saying ”Please don’t be foolish like me, get yourself checked and wear sunscreen”. Fact is our environment is constantly polluted way more than it was decades ago and so the need to protect the facial skin from toxic gases and pollutants has become much more necessary than ever. Jack Black Sun Guard Sunscreen is the most recommended and Bald Guyz Sunscreen is also very good for bald guys.
