Men’s Skincare Routine (And How to Get Your Man to Use One)

men's skincare routine

Taken in Greece (and totally posted on Facebook but I’m all about keeping it real!)

Getting a man to do something he doesn’t want to do is tough. If he doesn’t want to do something, newsflash, he isn’t going to. So how do you make him do something that’s good for him (like a skincare routine)? Persistence.

You dutifully perform your regime every night (here’s mine), maybe drop a few lines in there about how amazing your skin feels afterward. After hearing the word “skin” enough times, he’ll start to notice it. Maybe point out a wrinkle or two around his eyes. Gently, of course. Perhaps start with a face mask, share it on Instagram Stories (you know what I mean if you’re following me on Instagram). He’ll come around. Eventually…

So what does he really think about all these changes (aka improvements) you’ve been getting him into? Without further adieu, here are a man’s thoughts on a skincare routine. A word of warning, it’s “raw”.

If you love getting a guy’s perspective, here are more posts from Matt!

So, it’s summer. Which means every girl in America is going to be competing for the best tan. If you’re like me, you’re not going to win that battle. As every Midwest girl knows, not seeing the sun for 7 months really starts you off on the wrong foot. A very pale, wrong foot at that. But you know how they say “fake it til you make it”? I’m not a fan of phrases like that usually but I swear there’s something to this one. So today, let’s talk about how to fake a summer tan!
