When it comes to taking care of the skin, people associate the whole routine to women. Hardly does it cross people’s minds that some men have skincare routines too.
Well, people cannot be blamed much because the beauty industry is mostly ascribed to women and in the past, most men, especially Black men, couldn’t care less about what moisturizers or cleansers they were using for their skin.
To look radiant and glowy all the time takes time and effort whether you are a man or a woman. There are some basic routines that are needed to keep the skin healthy.
After all, it is the largest organ on the body and the first thing people see when they look at you. Why wait for it to deteriorate when you can have a basic skincare regimen that would go a long way to protect your skin.
Now times have changed, thankfully and Black men are unapologetically flaunting their skincare routine on Twitter.
Here are few Tweets from some dope Black men that should get you started on giving your skin the care it deserves. Take out your notebooks because you might learn a thing or two from these Tweets and you’d realize skincare is not all about what you put on the outside but what you eat as well.

No fast food. No dairy. I rarely eat fried food. Wash your face when you wake up and before you go to sleep. Face masks Sun, Mon, Wed, and Fri. Lemon honey, Honey and Tumeric face masks are great. Keep you sheets and pillow case clean. Change pillow cases every week. Shower.

Shea Moisture Coconut Oil bae soap-wash face twice a day
Followed by witch hazel soaked into cotton pad- do this after every face cleaning
After skin dries (but before it’s completely dried tf out), use an unscented non-oil based lotion.

Aite bro. First things first, when you're in the shower, let hot water run on your face for about a minute or so. It'll get those pores open.
Second, make sure you're drying your face with a different towel than your regular towel. Booty flakes will cause a breakout my dude.

African Black Soap, Nivea cream, Witch Hazel, face mask if you want the extra razzle dazzle. BUT, watch what you eat. Drink hella water, stay away from high fructose corn syrup (soda, candies, diabetes inducing sweet tea) pork, seafood, and please stop touching your face.
