Women's skin care and skin care products are traditionally advertised and discussed through commercials, print, television, and billboards. Men's skin care and skin care products are not touched on with the same gusto used for women. Why is that? Are men's skin and its care less important? Do women love and care about their skin more than men?
We know you may have your own answers to these questions. But it does not negate the fact that men do and should put thought, care, and attention to the products they use for their skin, as well as the techniques they use to apply these products. When it comes to skin care, men have traditionally kept it simple. However, more men are now pursuing healthier, younger-looking skin, making it a great time for men to evaluate their skin care routine.
Can you think of anything you do in your routine that you know you shouldn't be doing...something that causes more harm than good?

You will save time and product by using this technique. Take a look at the video:
