Proper care and daily maintenance of your skin is one of the best gifts you can give yourself, as well as the best way to prepare your skin for a shave. Like every other routine, daily skin care becomes second nature once you’ve figured out your skin type and how and when to take care of it. In the last few years men have started to take notice of their skin, and the importance of taking care of it on a daily basis. You can find something for all skin types: oily, dry, normal, sensitive, aging, and problem. Although there are different skin types, we recommend the same facial routine for each. The key is to select products containing essential oils that are beneficial for your skin type. Just remember C-S-M-: Cleanse, Scrub, and Moisture.
The purpose of cleansing is to strip your skin of all toxins, perspiration, oils, and impurities. First moisten the face and throat. Work a small amount of cleanser into a lather, then gently massage over face and throat. Rinse and pat dry. Cleanse your skin twice a day: Morning and night.
A scrub or exfoliant is a deep –pore cleanser and is ideal for all skin types. Work a small amount of exfoliating cream in circular motions on the face and throat, next using your Dermtouch facial brush gently move the brush using small circular motions. Rinse and pat dry. Use it once or twice a week recommended to do this step before routine shave.
Moisturizing restores the skin’s lost moisture and re-balances the condition pf the skin, leaving it smooth and firm. Stay away from products that contain mineral oils, petrolatum, which can clog pores and cause pimples and blackheads. The best time to moisturize is right after cleansing in the morning and night.
All professional products and tools used , on all skin types, daily can be found at Mr. Carter’s Grooming Lounge and Spa. It is locally owned and operated by Ms. Demetria Glover and Mr. Brandon Simmons. Mr. Carters was recognized last year by Bonner Brothers International as the top barbershop in the South Region.
