This easy 5 minutes, 4 steps ayurvedic skin care routine specially designed for Indian men, helps them to look fresh and young through out day.

The most common skin care routine for men is to bring a shower gel and a body spray selected from the supermarket . Most of them do not bother to see labels or to check whether it suits their skin or not. But men have to understand that their skin also needs nutrients. If its care is not done properly, the skin will wrinkle very quickly and they start looking old.

Everyone benefits from proper skincare routine. Most men are unaware of skincare methods. If you follow this routine daily, your facial skin will be radiant without acne, pimple, black heads, white heads, pigments and marks. This is the same pattern film actors and models regularly follow.

In this article, a simple, easy and effective skincare routine for men is described. This can be completed within 5 minutes.

Exfoliation products go down deep into the skin and get rid of impurities. This helps in reducing acne, pimples and blackheads. Take a little bit of scrub on your finger tips, rub this between palms with little water. Massage the face and neck with your palms for about 30 seconds. Concentrate more on regions which need more care. This should be done three times a week. (Once in two days).

2 nd STEP Cleansing – (30 seconds –Daily)

Cleansing is an important daily maintenance step in your skincare routine. Throughout the day, your skin is exposed to dirt, bacteria, and environmental impurities, producing sebum. All these accumulate on the skin, including the pores of the skin. This can cause acne, pimple and blackheads. This spoils facial beauty. Cleansing will eliminate all of these and prevent the skin pores from getting infected or filled with sebum and dirt.

The following ayurvedic herbal cleansers can be used for cleansing. These are made for men’s skin.

Ingredients :
Neem, Green Volcanic Clay,
Aloevera, Tulsi, Eucalyptus,

Every morning apply a little cleanser on the wet facial skin and massage for ೩೦ seconds and then rinse with clean water.

3rd  STEP Serum application (15 seconds –Daily)

Serums are rich in nutrients that skin needs. This makes the skin nourished faster and the skin glows healthier. The following serums are useful for men’s skin.

licorice (yashtimadhu),
Moringa (drumstick), aloevera,
mandukaparni (centella asciatica or gotu kola)

Serums are concentrated with nutrients. Only little amount of serum has to be applied over face. If you use more quantity, it may do more harm than good. Take a pea-sized or 2 to 3 drops of serum into the palm and gently rub between both palms. Apply this on face and neck with gentle taps. But do not massage . Wash the face with clean water after 5 minutes.

Before using serums read labels and instructions carefully. This helps to use serum to gain maximum benefits.

4th Step – Moisturising

Moisture is very essential to the skin. If the moisture content of the skin is low, the skin will dry out, wrinkles will develop and it makes you look very old. The following moisturizers are ideal for men to maintain and increase skin moisture and hydration.

The moisturizer forms a protective barrier on the skin, which helps to prevent clogging up of pores and protects against the bacteria that cause the outbreak.

How much moisturizer you should use depends on the season, temperature and the type of your skin. If your skin is naturally oily, you should use sparingly.  Using too much oil can often cause acne and pimple. If your skin is naturally dry, you may need to use it a little more often.

All skin types need more moisturiser during winter or if you are working under AC. Usually low temperatures reduce the secretion of natural oils produced by the skin, making skin dry.
