14 Hilarious Tweets That Show Nigerian Men’s Complicated Relationship With Skincare

September 17, 2020

Different men have different attitudes to skincare. Ranging from the ones who go all out to people who really don’t give two shits, everyone has their personal approach.

I was wondering how different men handled skincare so I put out a tweet asking men about their skincare routines. The answers I got ranged from shocking to downright hilarious. Here are a few of them.

1. Some people prefer plain ol’ robbery to keep their skin fresh.

2. Others like to keep it simple.

3. We hope this guy takes an occasional shower, at least.

4. Once you have money, your skin starts to glow. Facts.

5. This guy takes it up a notch.

6. If a doctor is doing it, it must be okay, right?

7. This guy is relying on vibes.

8. I’ve heard this is the best skincare routine. Don’t say you heard it from me.

9. This man did not come here to play.

10. Take a look at this sophisticated king’s routine.

11. Again, insha allah and vibes:

12. This person is definitely a Lagos man.

13. Bare minimum makes an appearance.

14. For most men, we just thank God for good skin.
