The health and beauty industry overwhelmingly targets women, which helps make it more acceptable for them to invest in beauty products and dedicate time to maintaining their skin. At the same time, men are just as self-conscious and concerned with the appearance of their complexion, but you probably won’t find them swapping best skin care tips with their friends. Men tend to feel embarrassed about buying beauty products or committing to a skin care regimen, but all that is changing.
Fortunately, companies are responding to a growing demand for simple, easy to use and time-saving skin care solutions for men with great products that anyone can have in their medicine cabinet. Many of these products are specifically designed to provide relief from the harsh effects that daily shaving and dry winter weather can have on the face. To help you establish your own healthy skin routine, here are some of the best skin care tips for men:
Before you attack that face stubble with a sharp razor, be sure to thoroughly cleanse your face and remove any excess oil, dirt and grime that may have accumulated. If you are used to washing your face with a good old bar of soap, it is time to upgrade to a specially formulated facial cleanser like ZO Skin Health’s Foamacleanse.
Dead skin cells are responsible for creating dull skin and causing ingrown hairs along with acne and wrinkles. Exfoliating your face at least twice a week can remove these irritants and reveal fresh, clean skin. Look for products that provide a certain level of grittiness without being too abrasive. Alumier’s Lotus Scrub is a great product that provides the right balance.
If you only follow one of our easy skin care tips, this should be the one. Applying the right moisturizer in the morning and the evening will help keep your skin smooth and soft. Look for products that are designed for your specific skin type.
For example, men with oily skin should look for light-weight or gel-based products. If your skin tends to naturally be dryer, shop around for thick, rich formulas that will provide the right level of moisture. Neocutis Bio-Cream is an excellent choice that contains a nourishing protein blend that both improves the skin’s tone and texture while replenishing moisture that is lost throughout the day.
Not only does sunscreen prevent wrinkles and sun damage, it helps to ward off more serious diseases such as melanoma. While you should wear sunscreen year-round, with summer right around the corner, it is more important than ever to make sure you are protected. For normal, daily use, look for products that contain at least SPF 30.
While there are both physical and chemical sunscreen products on the market, it is a good idea to stick with physical products. These contain active mineral ingredients that sit on top of the skin and actively work to deflect UV rays whereas chemical options turn UV rays into heat, which is then released from the skin.
Colorescience Sunforgettable® is an excellent choice that is dry and is easily applied by simply brushing it on the skin. It also has an SPF of 50 and will keep working even if you go swimming. Just remember to reapply every 2-4 hours to enjoy maximum benefits.
For men who want to age well and maintain a healthy complexion, skin care doesn’t have to be complicated or time consuming. Following these easy skin care tips and investing in a few affordable products can produce noticeable and long-lasting results.BACK TO ALL ARTICLES
