Lemme Upgrade Ya (Part 2): You’ve Got Male

Once a week, Birchbox’s resident yoga and men’s product expert, Eric, will gives us girls some insight into his world in You’ve Got Male. Whether he’s giving his expertise on skincare (boys need advice, too!) or highlighting his new favorite grooming trend, this guy has got taste—so we’re lucky he’s on staff and willing to share.

Change can be scary. I get that. I think many guys feel intimidated when it comes
to overhauling their style and grooming routine – and with good reason! When we
 have habits and styles that we’ve lived with for years, the idea of a blitz “makeover”
is terrifying. Too much change all at once! So, I have decided to take a step by step 
approach to the overall upgrade and offer small but impactful ways that guys can step up their style and grooming game.

Step 2: The Face Cleanser

A crucial step to improving the look and health of your face (both immediately and
for the future) is to move from that Dove soap (or even worse, body wash!) to a face
 cleanser that is made specifically for your face. I know it could seem cumbersome 
and time-consuming, but one extra step in the mornings and evenings can clear up a lot of those pesky skin concerns (excess oil, blemishes, and dullness).

For a really simple and truly effective upgrade, try philosophy purity made simple one-step facial cleanser. This basic cleanser gently rids your face and pores of dirt and oil while also balancing skin to maintain proper levels of oil. It’s great for the guy who doesn’t want to get fussy — no surprise it’s a bestseller.
