Do Men Have A Skin Care Routine?

Apr 9, 2008
With growing trends with image it is not just women who are taking the time to invest in their appearance. Men are also following suit and in some cases men are spending more time in front of the mirror compared to their female counterparts.

But there is more to looking after the skin that looking good. Given that the skin is the largest organ of the human body it is essential that it is looked after and maintained in order to help it fight off the attack of potential infections.

So you need to understand your skin and making sure that you have the right products to your disposal. If you have oily skin then you need to be using products that are going to be helping you have a less shiny face and to prevent spots from occurring.

You may have passed the teenage years, but that does not mean that you will not get a spot. Anyone can get a spot and at any stage, so do not think that you have become immune.

Another problematic skin type is that of dryness. In this instance your skin is really lacking in moisture and this can be caused by a number of reasons such as humidity or even low extreme temperatures.

You need to be making sure that you are consuming a sufficient amount of water and that you need to be avoiding alcohol as this has a drying effect. Remember, what you consume in terms of food and drink will affect your appearance.

If you are fortunate to have normal skin then you need to count your blessings but you should not become lazy as anything can change. You should be using a good range of natural skin care products to make sure that you have giving your skin the nutrients that it needs and to be maintaining a healthy lifestyle and diet.

So if you have not already done so then you need to buy your own range of products starting with a good moisturiser, cleaner, exfoliating scrub and also a face mask. Oh and as well as these you need a good face wash. Try to obtain products that are soap free and remember not too wash the face more than twice a day.

Excess washing of the face will take away essential oils from the skin and so the body needs to compensate and so you could end up with very oily skin indeed.

Exfoliate every now and then just to get rid of these dead skin cells and to give yourself a fresh look. Use a face mask to help cleanse the pores and really lift out any dirt and bacteria.

Also if you shave, then you will need to use a shaving oil. Do not use foam or gel as these contain irritants and oil will act as a better lubricant compared to gel or foam. Remember to make sure that the whiskers of the beard are soft, and this is best achieved by shaving after you shower.
