Skincare for Men

Male skin is prone to age in the same way as women. Improper care or its complete absence makes the human derm thinner and dryer, which causes the appearance of deep wrinkles. The most effective way to prolong youth and preserve beauty is to take constant care of your skin.

Basic rules for men in skincare

First of all, regardless of the type of skin or possible problems associated with it, daily skincare in any case should begin with washing and end with the application of a moisturizer. Cleansing and moisturizing are the simplest elements of derm care. Once you’ve figured out these basic steps, you can move on, picking up the right options along the way.

In order for the skin of men to always be well-groomed, you need to adhere to only 3 basic rules:

  1. Facial cleansing in the morning just before shaving, as well as in the evening before bedtime. Choose your skincare products wisely! In this case, you need to use soap without lauryl sulfates, cleansing anti-inflammatory tonics, or mild moisturizing milk.
  2. Moisturize/nourish the derm in the evening.
  3. Deep cleaning once a week with a scrub or peeling.

Why is it so important to wash your face?

Cleansing is one of the most important elements of skincare. This is the first step that removes dirt, dead derma cells, and various harmful substances that have had time to settle on the surface of the face. If allowed to build up, it can lead to redness or flaking, acne, and even accelerate skin aging.

It should be borne in mind that the skin of the face behaves differently than the derm of the rest of the body – men, however, often use the same means for washing both. Body washes are often too harsh on the face, causing dry skin, which can also be irritated by the fragrances they contain. Two-in-one users can easily improve derma health by switching to a separate facial cleanser.

In this case, you should pay attention that it does not contain surface-active sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS). This foaming agent, which is often found in skincare products, strips the skin of its natural protective film of oil, which can lead to dry, irritated, and inflamed derma. Most companies proudly write on the bottles with their products that they are free of sodium lauryl sulfate (often abbreviated to SLS).

Solving specific skin problems

You may experience irritation after shaving, or you may find flaky dry patches on your skin in general or around your beard. It may well be that moisturizing cleansing alone is not enough to keep your derma looking its best. If you are interested in adding something a little more serious to the basics of men’s skincare you already know, there are several possible ways to improve derm health. This is a great way to simplify skincare by focusing on the needs of your type. You just need to include only those steps in your skincare routine that solve the problems your derma has, and skip the rest.

Skincare products for men are experiencing a period of increased popularity, and the increasing demand for them has become a noticeable trend in the cosmetic market.

Skip aftershave and try replacing it with a facial toner

Aftershave products are designed to fight bacteria on the skin and heal possible razor-induced scratches or cuts, as well as to tighten pores. Unfortunately, most aftershave products contain ethyl alcohol, which is very drying to the skin. In addition, aftershave products are often oversaturated with fragrances that can irritate the derm. Use a facial toner instead of your traditional aftershave.

Toners are fast-absorbing liquid skincare products designed to even out the acid-base balance of the derm and remove excess oil and impurities. They are often formulated with ingredients such as salicylic acid, a beta-hydroxy acid that has natural antimicrobial properties, as well as excellent pore cleansing and skin hydration. Simply dab a little toner on your derma after shaving to moisturize it and soothe possible razor irritation.

Many men have realized that the use of skin care products can effectively maintain a well-groomed appearance, which is the most important criterion for evaluating in a society where the image is so important. On the other hand, the manifestation of age-related changes is increasingly becoming a matter of concern for men, who already do not hesitate to turn to targeted cosmetics that meet their needs.
