Do's and Don'ts For Men Skincare

As a man who wants to keep his skin looking as vibrant and youthful as possible, which skincare daily routine should you follow and avoid?

 

Do: Moisturize daily

 

Although you have a thicker layer of skin on the surface, you aren’t automatically protected from water loss caused by environmental factors. Maintaining a healthy pH balance and skin barrier function with hydrating products helps your skin stay smooth and soft. Proper hydration also helps decrease the likelihood of irritation, redness, and any other skin issues.  

 

Don't: Wear clothing that irritates your skin

 

Anything that causes rashes constricts body parts or leaves red marks on your skin should not be part of your practice.

 

Do: Be gentle in applying products

When applying things to your skin, don’t drag and pull and tug. When cleaning, don’t scrub. Think of patting and tapping as a way to show your skin some love.

 

Don’t: Forget to exfoliate

 

Exfoliation makes room for cell renewal. When you allow your skin to accumulate layers of dead cells, you leave yourself vulnerable to skin disorders. By removing dead layers, your skin will look more glowing and youthful. Regular exfoliation helps revitalize skin and diminish the signs of aging. 

 

Do: Stay hydrated

 

Just like any other part of your body, your skin is an organ that requires adequate hydration to perform at its best. Keeping your skin properly hydrated can help slow the aging process, improve the appearance of your skin, rid your skin of toxins, fight oil and acne, among other benefits.

 

Don't: Skip the sunscreen 

Using sunscreen helps keep not only aging but also skin cancer at bay. Sunscreen helps prevent water loss from the skin, keeping you hydrated all day long. Make sure to wear it always when you're out--yes, even when there's no sun in sight. 

Do: Select skincare products made specifically for men 

Because of the differences between men's and women's skin, you need to seek out products specifically designed for your needs. Look for products designed to deal with excess sebum production and remove oil effectively. Also look for products that combat the thickness of the skin by providing better absorption than women's products. In addition, look for something that will work against clogged pores, irritation and other effects of shaving by removing dead cells, soothing the skin and keeping it well hydrated.
