We’re all (hopefully) spending a little more time at home. If you’re bored of mindlessly scrolling through social media, and you’ve noticed that your facial hair has adapted the “work from home” look, use this time to develop the perfect look. You can use this opportunity to spend extra time and effort on your self-care routine. Skincare and grooming doesn’t have to be a long or expensive process. You can add simple and easy steps that will make a big difference.
Perfect your Process
Having trouble getting the perfect shave? Is your razor the right style? Are you using the right shaving technique? Do you have dry skin or razor burn? Now is the time to dive into your routine to find any ways that you can improve. Washing your face daily (at night) and moisturizing are great ways to improve your skin, and they only take a few minutes. Experts also recommend men should exfoliate twice a week to help with shaving and dry skin. Exfoliate before you shave to clean your skin of any dirt and dead skin cells and follow with a moisturizer to prevent dry skin. Spending a little extra time now will allow you to perfect your routine and improve your skin. Not sure where to start? This article lists the 10 Best Face Scrubs for Men.
Try Something New
This is also a great time to try something new at home. Test different techniques and products to see what works best for your skin. You can also switch up your look.

The right facial hair style may give you a completely new look. Check out this blog with the Best Beard Styles for your Face Shape and how to achieve those looks. A good way to tell the right beard style for you is by the shape of your face and your hair type.

If facial hair just isn’t for you, no one else will know if it didn’t work (except maybe your pet).
