When it comes to taking care of their skin, many men aren’t sure where to begin. But good men skincare doesn’t have to be complicated. With just a few simple steps or adjustments to your current regimen, your skin can start looking fresher, smoother, and healthier in no time. Let’s take a look at our top skincare tips for men.
Men Skincare Includes Cleansing and Moisturizing
Cleansing and moisturizing the skin is something many men do wrong, or sometimes even fail to do at all. However, properly cleansing and moisturizing the skin is incredibly important. Cleansing the skin with a gentle cleanser removes dirt and oil that builds up on the skin, which helps prevent breakouts and other problems. Moisturizing the skin is equally important, as this prevents the skin from getting too dry, which makes our skin look much more wrinkled and aged.
Men Skincare Includes Using Aftershave and Good Razors
Be careful about using poor quality razors, as they can cause razor burn, ingrown hairs, and further irritation. Investing in a high quality razor that works for your skin and hair type is one of the best things you can do for your skin. Similarly, don’t skip using aftershave. Aftershave is important because it helps to hydrate and soothe the skin after the shaving process. When choosing an aftershave, make sure you only use an aftershave that is alcohol-free, as alcohol dries out and irritates the skin.
Men Skincare includes Botox
Botox is excellent for both treating and preventing wrinkles and fine lines. Botox for men, often also called “Brotox,” is becoming more and more popular today, as the treatment has become more widely known and socially acceptable. Plus, a skilled cosmetic doctor can help you get the exact look you want. For example, Botox doesn’t have to create a perfectly smooth face (though it certainly can). For men who still want a slightly rugged look while reducing the appearance of aging, less Botox can be used (or certain treatment areas can be strategically avoided) to allow you to get your desired look.
Men Skincare Includes Protecting Your Skin From the Sun
The sun is highly damaging to our skin and can cause rapid aging and a higher risk for skin cancer. So, protection from the sun is a must. Make sure that you wear a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher every day. You can choose a moisturizer that includes SPF or use your sunscreen separately.
Men Skincare Includes Trying Facials for Acne and Dull Skin
Facials are one of the best ways to improve the overall texture and cleanliness of the skin. If you have acne, dull skin, clogged pores, fine lines, or many other issues, facials can help you get the improved skin you’ve been looking for.
