How Can Men Take Better Care of Their Skin?
Men. If you’ve been thinking about taking better care of your skin, you’re not alone. More men are getting in on the skin care game, in a big way. They too want good-looking, healthy skin, are in the market for anti-aging treatments and are taking more steps to improve the look and condition of their skin. Now it’s your turn. Here are some men skincare tips to help you get started.
Start with a Good Cleanser
Start with the basics – a good cleanser. And just because you’re a man doesn’t mean you need an abrasive cleanser. Start with a gentle cleanser. Wash your face daily, especially after working out. Also, look into products to exfoliate your skin, which will help remove any “dirt,” giving you fresher-looking skin. You might be surprised to see how your skin will feel after your new skin care regimen.
Hydration is Crucial
You may not think that you need a good facial moisturizer, but you really do. Your skin, though thicker than women’s skin, dries out. The bottom line: moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! Again, do it daily. It’s a good idea to moisturize right after you’ve cleaned your face. We also suggest you add lotion to your regimen and moisturize your whole body.
The Oh-So-Important Shaving Ritual
Whether you’re a part of the trending beard club or not, you must get your shaving ritual down. First things first – hydrate your skin before shaving. Did you know that soaking your face with hot water makes for a better shave? Do not towel-dry afterward. Apply plenty of moisturizing shaving gel or shaving cream to help minimize cuts, nicks, and irritation. Be sure to use a good razor that works best with your particular skin type. To minimize irritation, change your blade after five to seven uses. As a topper, a hydrating after-shave will work wonders for your skin on so many levels. Here’s to smooth shaving!
Don’t Forget the Sunscreen
Don’t leave home without your sunscreen and apply it to all parts of your exposed skin, especially your face. As much as we love the sun, we have to be careful when in the path of its damaging ultraviolet (UV) rays. Overexposure to the sun can lead to wrinkles, dark spots and age spots, and even cancer. And be sure to check your skin regularly for any unusual spots. If you’re unsure of a spot, make an appointment to see one of our board-certified dermatologists.
Men Need Facials, Too
Have you considered getting a facial? Women love them, and so will you. We feature a facial just for men – our Men’s Deep Clean. It’s a customized facial treatment designed to clean and sooth the skin, and also great for controlling acne. If you haven’t had a facial, add that to your “must do” list.
What’s Your Skin Type?
Do you know your skin type? Is it oily, dry, sensitive, combination, normal? That’s important to know and will help determine the best skin care routine for you. We can determine your skin type, and then help you develop a skin care regimen.
