At Main Street Barber Shop we understand that we all live busy lives and the last thing we need is another task to add to our daily routine. However, it is important to take care of your skin.

Skincare can be made easy and simple, and will only take you a few minutes to do. Below are three steps to add to your daily skincare routine. 

Cleanse Twice Daily

The first step in your skincare routine should be to cleanse twice daily. When you clean your face, you are removing any dirt, grime, and excess oil that has settled into your pores. Simply washing your face will prevent clogged pores, breakouts, and minimize shine. 

Before you can use any other products like exfoliants or moisturizers, you need to clean your face as well. If you don’t you’ll reduce the effectiveness of those products. 

Exfoliate Twice Weekly

The next step to add to your skincare routine is to exfoliate twice weekly. After you clean your face you should scrub away dead skin cells. This will help prevent your pores from getting clogged and leading to breakouts. Exfoliating also allows your healthy skin cells to live on your skin and give you a brighter complexion. We suggest only exfoliating twice a week to avoid too much abrasion. 

Moisturize Twice Daily

Once you’ve cleaned and scrubbed away dead skin cells, you’re ready to hydrate and protect your face. Moisturizers give your skin the vitamins and nutrients it needs and creates a barrier on your skin to shield you from complexion-compromising toxins like smoke or smog. Apply your moisturizer twice a day, once in the morning and once before you go to bed. 

At Main Street Barber Shop, we understand the importance of having healthy skin.
