Fairer skin is within reach for gentlemen, too!

For men who are aspiring to get a fair, glowing complexion, here are five must-try tips for you:


1. Massage your skin every day.

Make it a habit to massage your skin when cleansing. A gentle massage helps improve blood circulation, making skin glowing and fair. For faster and more effective whitening process, massage your skin in a circular motion for 2-3 minutes when you cleanse your face every night.   




2. Exfoliate.

Exfoliation removes dead skin cells that cause your skin to look dull and feel dirty. Exfoliate at least once a week with a product that contains deep scrub beads to eliminate skin impurities. Like in the first step, massage your face for 2-3 minutes so the beads can thoroughly clean your skin for a fresh and bright appearance.        

3. Eat healthy food.

That means fruits and vegetables, as they nourish the skin cells. Make sure to ingest food rich in Vitamins A, C, E, and protein to keep skin fair and young-looking. Eat fruits at breakfast, fish or meat (preferably chicken) at lunch, and vegetables at dinner for a balanced and nutritious diet.  

4. Sleep.

This is important! Skin cells repair when you’re snoozing at night, so it’s highly recommended that you get at least 6 to 8 hours of sleep. Your skin will look healthy and bright when you wake up the next day! For those who find it difficult to fall asleep immediately, avoid browsing through the social media apps on your phone before hitting the sack because each notification from your friends will excite your brain and keep you awake for hours.      

5. Use a whitening facial wash.

Pick a facial wash with ingredients that revitalize the skin such as coffee bean extracts or white ginseng extract. If you’re always stressed at work, a facial wash with a combination of anti-oxidants and coffee bean extracts is your best option as it energizes tired-looking skin, making you look healthy and glowing. But if you’re aiming for fair, clear, and radiant skin, use a product with white ginseng extract that invigorates skin and improves its smoothness.
