How to hydrate skin: 5 top tips for guys

  • 1

    Water your body

    It sounds obvious, but the first step to hydrating your skin is hydrating your body. Water flushes out toxins, replaces fluid lost through sweat and exercise, and helps stop your skin from drying out. Aim to drink at least eight glasses of water throughout the day to hydrate your skin.

    Turn down the heat

    Hot showers might feel amazing, but the heat can encourage water to flow out of your skin and evaporate (not to mention strip your skin of its natural oils). To keep skin hydrated, short showers with a little less heat are the way to go. 

    A caring and moisturizing cleanser like our Dove Men+Care Blue Eucalyptus + Birch Body + Face Wash can also help. It’s clinically-proven to help protect skin from dryness. Plus, it has a cool, crisp birch and blue eucalyptus scent that relaxes your senses and leaves you feeling fresh.

    Don’t forget sun protection

    Sun exposure can dehydrate your skin, even in winter. So, in the daytime, consider applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen to help prevent UVA/UVB skin damage. If you want to hydrate the skin on your face while giving yourself a little sun protection, we recommend Dove Men+Care Hydrate+ Face Lotion. It’s fast-absorbing, non-greasy and infused with broad-spectrum SPF 15.

    Get your beauty sleep

    Nighttime is when your skin carries out its repairs. And if you haven’t had enough sleep, your face can show it with dark circles, dry skin and even fine lines and wrinkles. Try to get as close to eight hours as you can and use a moisturizer before bed (like our Dove Men+Care Hydrate+ Face Lotion) to lock in moisture and keep skin hydrated and healthy.

    Moisturize every day

    Again, it sounds obvious, but making moisturizing part of your self-care routine is one of the best ways to hydrate your skin. 

    Straight after your shower, give your skin some extra hydration and protection with Dove Men+Care Refreshing Hand + Body Lotion. Formulated with glycerin and jojoba oil, it leaves dry skin feeling instantly refreshed and nourished with 48-hour moisture. One top tip: After your shower, pat-dry skin so it’s still slightly damp when applying your lotion and help that moisture sink in.
