1. Shave Properly

One of the greatest sources of male frustration with their skin comes from shaving. Though not always a daily task, shaving requires both time and concentration to get right. The number one cause of shaving problems, however, is lack of preparation for the chore.

  • Wash your face first. For many men, a little stubble holds plenty of this and that, including crumbs, bits of dirt or mud, and even some stray hairs from your head or a significant other. Likewise, the uneven distribution of oils over your skin can wreak havoc with the blade. A clean face makes a safer surface for the blade.

  • Shave in the shower. Softening up the stiff hairs and skin before shaving helps to limit ingrown hairs and nicks. A splash of water won't accomplish the same thing; softened hair and skin require a little time, water, and warmth. For those in a hurry with no time to shower, try dampening a washcloth with warm water and laying it over your face until it cools.

  • Use a good blade. A new, sharp, clean blade avoids ingrown hairs, uneven cutting, and damaged skin.

  • Know when to go with or against the grain. Most men should go against the direction of their hair growth when shaving. This ensures the closest possible cut. However, those with sensitive skin should experiment with doing otherwise. For most men with sensitive skin, certain parts of the face rather than the entire face may be prone to irritation. At these points, try shaving with the direction of the hair. While the shave may not be as close, it will reduce the amount of friction and irritation caused by stubborn little hairs. For those whose beards grow any which way they please, shave downward for several weeks. Gradually, the hair should begin to grow in the same direction.

  • Glide, don't scrape. Most men find it tempting to press the razor while shaving. Most razors have protective designs that prevent nicks in this scenario, but the harder you press, the more skin you remove. Sensitive skin or not, men who scrape will experience greater irritation, sensitivity, and dry skin. And don't think for a moment that scraping helps with oily skin: the sudden removal of so much skin stimulates the oil glands to produce additional oil to compensate.

2. Wash Your Face Daily and Naturally

Men use the bar soap on the rest of your body, so why not your face? Here's the factual answer: different parts of your skin have different pH levels, bacteria, and oil. Your skin maintains a delicate balancing act at all times, which standard bar soaps, many of which contain oil-stripping sulfates, disrupt. Additionally, men tend to have larger pores and oilier skin. Men need to wash their faces daily, but standard soaps clog pores, leading to breakouts, irritation, and uneven skin tone. Sulfate-based soaps strip oils altogether and expose the body to unsavory chemicals.

  • For Every Day

    Put some of the oil mixture on your hands and then massage it into your face very gently for a minute or two. Now take a cloth and wet it with warm water (not too hot!). Lay the wet wash cloth over your face and wait until the wash cloth cools. This allows the oils to penetrate and cleanse your pores. Rinse the washcloth and gently wipe away any excess oil.

  • For Once in Awhile

    Aloe and Cucumber.Take about 2 TBS of Aloe and half of a washed, peeled, seeded cucumber. Throw it all in a blender or food processor until it makes a nice, smooth paste. Spread it over your face. It will feel quite chilly at first: this is a good sign! Let it dry for 20 to 30 minutes. Wash off with lukewarm or cool water and pat your face dry with a towel.

3. Healthy diet

If you want healthy skin, you should start with a healthy diet. Foods rich in Vitamin A, Vitamin E, and Omega-3s—just to name a few—will impart healthy, clear skin. Vitamin E, in particular, makes your skin more youthful and healthy. And remember: healthy skin means more protective skin and better overall health.

4.Fight Dandruff with... Sugar?

Those with dandruff know what a difficult problem it can be to treat. Just when you think you have it cornered, those tell-tale white flakes show up on your shoulders. This brown sugar and honey scrub should be used once every week or two to fight dandruff. Honey helps draw moisture toward the hair and scalp, sealing it in. Honey also has well-known antibacterial properties,meanwhile, the brown sugar gently exfoliates without damaging the skin.

  • 2 TBS Brown Sugar - light or dark will do
  • 1 TBS Honey

Mix together the honey and brown sugar in a small bowl or your hand, reducing or increasing either ingredient until you find a texture that is comfortable for you. Gently exfoliate the scalp with this mixture for 5 minutes. Rinse thoroughly and wash as usual.

Whiten Teeth with Strawberries

Steer clear of heavy duty teeth bleaching and go for this natural beauty tip, instead. Strawberry pulp makes an excellent (and sweet!) natural teeth whitener. In fact, this method is so effective that you must exercise a bit of caution. As with anything acidic, it can eat away at tooth enamel instead of gently whitening it if the user isn't careful

  • Brush gently. Rub don't scrub.
  • Have a quick mouth-rinse handy. Milk or water work great!
  • Use a soft-bristle brush or a clean finger.
  • Do this once in awhile, not every day.

Directions: mash strawberries into a fine pulp. Rub, don't scrub, the mixture over your teeth. Try to avoid scraping your gums with the strawberry seeds. Allow pulp to sit on your teeth for five minutes before thoroughly rinsing out your mouth.

Don't be afraid to take good care of yourself. Looking after your skin doesn't obligate you to put makeup on it (though you can!). Likewise, having a healthy scalp doesn't require you to stick some gel in there (though you can!). Many men suffer from irritated or dry patches of skin for the entirety of their lives simply because no one thinks to consider the possibility of skin allergies to the common, often harsh ingredients in commercially-manufactured soaps. Your grandparents used some of these tricks and for good reason: they didn't cost much, and they worked. Going the natural route, with oatmeal, honey, or Castile soaps, helps ensure that you look and feel better.

Nothing looks better on a human being than healthy, happy skin dressed up with a smile.

So be healthy and happy in this Diwali and give happiness to your family too.
