Are you intrigued with men's grooming/beauty habits? What kind of facial wash do they use? Do they moisturize? Do they wear sheet masks and light scented candles, too? Though they may not be as open about it on social media, men, too, have a few beauty tricks up their sleeves—just ask YouTuber Benedict Cua!
You may say Cua's blessed with good genes. True, but he also knows how to take care of his skin, and he's not shy about it! When he's not posting random funny videos, you'd see him post on Instagram his favorite beauty products or a new skincare trick he learned.
"Can’t stress enough how important it is to moisturize your skin! Indoor man o outdoor, even if you’re wearing your masks!" the Neutrogena ambassador wrote on one post.
To debunk the myth that men don't spend time on their appearance, PhilSTAR L!fe asked Cua to share his skincare secrets below.
What does self-care mean to you?
Self care is protecting your wellbeing. This includes taking care of your mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual health. We function better when all are well taken care of.
What’s your skin type? Any skincare concerns?
I have a combination type of skin. And usually, I get confused when my skin gets a little bit too dry and too oily.
How did your skincare routine change through the years?
It’s really trial and error but once you find out the exact products that match your skin, it gets easier!!
What’s your morning and evening skincare routine, and the favorite products that you use?
My favorite product is Neutrogena Hydro Boost. You don’t know how important hydrating your skin is unless you experience intense dryness. Neutrogena Hydro Boost has prebiotic technology that boosts your skin’s hyaluronic acid by up to 50% and penetrates your skin 2x deeper. It’s such a life saver!
What’s skincare secret did you learn during the quarantine and will continue doing?
Since I’m not getting any younger, I realized how important it is to constantly apply sunblock and moisturizer. It’s actually a secret to immortality, kidding! But it does make you feel like you don’t age quick when your skin is well taken care of!
