Only been like 2 weeks since I discovered this sub and started caring but I use the Loreal Men Black Charcoal wash before I go to sleep. In the mornings, after a shower I’ll use Nivea post-shave balm and once that dries, 30SPF sunscreen.

EDIT: Also a clean pillowcase every night

Thanks, appreciated. I’ve actually got no idea on proper skin care, but I started using this a couple days ago:


Not sure if it’ll help over the long term but worth a try.

To be honest, you’ve got a good head and face-shape for shaving your hair completely. Get it clippered as short as possible, I’m not sure if there’s anything shorter than 0.5, because fully bald would be in the realm of shaving, and that’s going to result in an awful prickly feeling and maintaining a full shave is much more laborious than just a simple full clippering; I have a friend who looks similar.

Hats definitely work in your favour, because you obviously need to protect your scalp and your appearance and demeanor suits the style as it is, but don’t be afraid of not wearing hats while in doors.

I’d definitely recommend to switching to flat-brim hats exclusively, like these: http://imgur.com/a/bd2Zo

For skincare, I generally like using Phisohex (https://www.priceline.com.au/phisohex-anti-bacterial-wash-200-ml) on a recently clippered scalp, mainly at the back, it will reduce redness and prevent foliculitis from having it clippered so short. If you’re not Australian, and you’re probably not, any sort of anti-bacterial face wash will also help.

For your face, I’d definitely recommend using something like this daily: in the morning or at night, but only once a day: http://www.amazon.com/LOreal-Expert-Energetic-X-Treme-Charcoal/dp/B006SXDA7S

After this, tone your face if you’re worried about even skintone, some witchhazel is good for this. It’s also great for treating minor knicks and scraps from shaving your face: http://www.amazon.com/Dickinsons-Astringent-Natural-Witch-Hazel/dp/B00016WW8Q/ref=sr_1_2_s_it?s=hpc&ie=UTF8&qid=1457657115&sr=1-2&keywords=witchhazel

After toning, if you want to, use a moisturiser, again something from the Loreal Men range, either for anti-aging or for sensitive skin, depending on your goals.

As for the sideburns, if you’re going to keep them, you’d need to go for a full beard if you decide to clipper your head, since obviously sideburns can be attached from above or below, but I’d really recommend you clipper the top as short as possible.
