First, 5 Things You MUST DO If You Have Darker Skin Tone
Black men or men with darker skin may be less susceptible to wrinkling, but it also comes with its own unique grooming challenges. Please understand that every man can benefit from this advice. With that said, let's dive into the latest advice from his.
Moisturize, Moisturize Moisturize - This is the first rule of proper skin care. Moisturize your skin twice daily. Moisturize once, post a shower. Wash your face just before heading to bed, and moisturize your face a second time.
All Moisturizers Are Not Created Equally - Darker skin is also susceptible to drying out. Darker skinned men should avoid moisturizers that contain dyes, chemicals, or fragrances. If your dark skin is oily you can still moisturize your skin but you will need to use an oil-free moisturizer.
Shave the Right Way - Always prepare your face before shaving, no matter what your ethnic background. Preparing your skin and softening your course beard hair is the key to a close, comfortable shave. Use a gentle exfoliating scrub before grabbing the razor. By clearing the debris and dead skin cells away, prior to a shave, you'll reduce your chances of getting razor bumps. Using a scrub with salicylic acid helps reduce inflammation and rid your existing ingrown hairs. Glycolic acid will also help stop new bumps from forming and keeping existing ones under control. Switch to a safety razor which has a very sharp well-angled blade that requires fewer passes over the skin even when taking down course hair. Never shave against the grain, if you need a closer shave, go across the grain.
Finally, if you get a barbershop shave be sure the barber doesn't use any alcohol-related solutions which can irritate sensitive skin.
