However, there’re a few guys who rubbish the notion – “I’m a dude, I don’t need any beauty tips”.

Moisturize Your Skin – Your skin is your largest organ. An adult carries about 8 pounds of skin, so you need to make it healthy. Moisturizer is the best way to keep your skin healthy. Remember, the real key to youthful skin, though is your diet (and hydration of course) Drink a lot of water and if your skin feels a little dry apply lotion after you shower. Use a body lotion on your body and a face moisturizer for your face.
Keeping your face skin exfoliated and moisturized will do a lot to minimize and prevent wrinkles
Keep Your Beard Clean – Ensure that you keep your beard clean so that fears of itchiness don’t come between you and your loved one while you enjoy conversation and meal. Simply follow a few basic hygiene measures. The best thing to do is to wash your beard with a face wash or shampoo. But ensure that you don’t over shampoo your beard to completely remove natural oils that keep your beard healthy and moisturized. You may also apply some beard oil with fragrance after washing it.
Protect Your Face When You Shave
Look for shave creams with soothing anti-oxidant ingredients. If you struggle with redness or irritations when you shave a soothing shave cream will save your skin. Note that shaving gels tend to have more alcohol which increases the risk of dry skin so it’s preferably better with shave creams instead.
Minimize or Prevent Wrinkles
Watery fruits and veggies help with hydration, which keeps skin youthful. Watermelons, tomatoes, cucumbers and lemons can be added into your diet. You should eat more cabbage since it contains Vitamin C and Vitamin A both of which help erase lines. It also detoxifies the blood and the fiber in cabbage pushes waste and toxins out of the body
Toxins can actually show on your face making you look older than you are.
