Forget designer suits and spiffy shoes, the first thing women—and men—notice about you is your face, so its time you give it the TLC it deserves. A quick swipe of soap and distracted shaving routine just isn't good enough if you want your face to take center stage. Check out the tools and tips you need to create a dazzling, blemish-free countenance.

1. Wash right

The good news is that it isn't necessary to splurge on every aspect of grooming. Ditch the bathing soap to wash your face and invest in a face wash suited to your skin type. If sun spots, shine and skin darkening are the bane of your life, pick up a face wash meant for oily skin. Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash and The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Facial Wash. Meanwhile, guys blessed with problem-free skin can simply opt for Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash.

2. Scrub up

Your skin tends to be thicker than women's, hence a gentle exfoliation every now and then helps slough off dead dull cells to reveal fresh, clear skin. Qraa Men De-Tan Scrub contains natural oils to draw out dirt. For guys prone to stubble ingrowths, get Kama Ayurveda Himalayan Almond Deep Cleansing Face Scrub For Men that contains Sweet Almonds and Saffron to brighten skin and clear complexion.

3. Soft supple moisturized skin

It's not unmanly to use a moisturizer. After all, this is your first line of defense against wrinkles. Kill two birds with one stone by opting for Neutrogena UltraSheer Dry Touch Sunblock SPF 50+ for sun protection and moisture defense. It protects against skin darkening and is non-greasy and non-sticky. Or opt for Kaya Men Energizing Cream SPF 15 that will help stimulate cell-renewal, reduce the effects of environmental stress as well as provide UV protection.

4. Pesky nose and ear hairs

Desist from plucking out unsightly hair from your nose and ears. The pain apart, tweezing can cause infections. Invest in an inexpensive scissor created just for this purpose. We recommend Vega Nasal Safety Scissor.

5. Stop breakouts in their track

Excessive oil and grime can cause clogged pores that lead to blackheads and pimples. Circumvent the problem by keeping a box of face wipes like Origami Luxuria Anti Bacterial to soak up excessive oil. These pre-moistened, oil-free and alcohol-free wipes come in a resealable pack, perfect for work and play. If you do happen to break out, then simply use a specialized face wash like Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash and apply O3+ Men Ice Cool Acne/Blemish Control Cream for effective, targeted damage control.

6. Stay young forever

There's no point reaching for anti-ageing potions once the crow's feet and laugh lines have taken hold. Start using an anti-ageing formula starting in your mid 20s. Try Thalgo Intensive Hydrating Cream that contains Algue Bleue Vitale, an algae extract with energizing, cell renewal and anti-ageing properties. Don't reach for your girlfriend or wife's night cream because it won't have the same effects on your skin.
