Facial Care

For gay men, it is important to take good care of your face.  You might ask, when do I start taking care of my face?  Immediately!  Start early especially during puberty.

Pimples or acne is the greatest enemy of all and it usually starts during puberty.  What one should do first is start washing your face with soap especially designed for the face, in short a facial wash.  Decades ago you could not find a men's facial wash.  You had to buy the ladies facial wash.  Now there is an array of men's facial wash in the market.  However not all is suitable to your face.  You have to experiment which facial wash works with your face.  Expensive facial wash does not mean it will work for you.   Based on my experience I had to go through several facial wash before I found one that suited my face.

Wash your face with facial wash at least twice a day.  One in the morning and one at night before sleeping.  You have to remove dirt and excess oil on your skin which causes the pimple outbreak.  However pimple outbreaks can also be due to stress, food allergies and others factors.

After washing your face, you can then use a cleanser to remove stubborn dirt on your skin.  Pour the cleanser on a cotton ball and rub moderately around the face especially the T zones where the skin produces more oil.

After a cleanser, some usually apply a toner but for me, a simple facial wash would be sufficient especially if you are the type of person on the go most of the time.

Then the next step is to moisturize your face with a non-greasy formulation.  During washing and cleansing, your natural facial oils are stripped off.  This has to replenish with moisturizers.  This will give a good glow to your face.
