We care about more than just sales and beard products, here at Mandevu. We care about men and their health and their entire grooming process as well as living the lifestyle that they see best for themselves. If you didn’t know, now you know.

One pesky problem that irritates men both bearded and non-bearded is skin problems. You probably never want to admit this seeing as our society has only recently started the conversation around men’s skin and selling skin care products for the man. We are here to help. Here are a few easy steps to help you get or maintain clear skin.
  1. Know your skin type
You probably have never thought you would have to do this. Well, fellas, this is important for you too. It’s not just for the ladies. Knowing whether your skin is oily or dry or normal is the first step in helping you determine what products you should use on your face for the perfect balance that allows you to have clear skin. Any mall you go to will have a facial products store, they do these tests for free and they take seconds.
  1. Adopt products that blend with your skin
Once you know your skin type, then you will be able to know what products to use so that your face is never too dry or too oily. Both of these extremes cause breakouts and cracks and all sorts of skin irritations which could be easily avoided by paying more attention to your skin.

To make it even less of a hustle, the product stores mentioned above are staffed with people who know what products are perfect for your skin. This makes it as easy trip to the mall where you walk in and walk out knowing more and having exactly what you need to use this knowledge.
  1. Protect your skin from UV Rays
Bearded men have the advantage of natural protection from the sun via their beard hair. This does not mean that products like sunscreen are not important. The sun can cause burns for the lighter men and cause dryness for darker men. Either way, none of this is good for your face and keeping is blemish free and healthy. You could use a normal sunscreen or get a face cream that is infused with sunscreen to kill two birds with one stone.

To add on that, wear sunglasses and hats when it is very hot outside. You stay protected and you get the added bonus of ladies loving sunglasses and hats on a bearded man!
  1. Adopt gentle skin treatment practices
This takes a little more time than the rest of the tips in this article but it is worth it. Using gentle products and placing warm face cloths on your face to exfoliate are amazing ways to clear your skin and revive it. Basically, give your face all the TLC you see the women in your life giving to theirs. They don’t do it for fun. In the end, it’s worth it.

Taking care of your face allows your skin to be fresh, clean and clear. This is the optimum space for a beard to grow and thrive. You can say goodbye to all those itchy days and ingrown’s when your face is well taken care of.
Mandevu’s got your facial care.
