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.
