A Guide to Men’s Skin Care

A Guide to Men’s Skin Care

Generally women are more conscious about their skin as compared to men. They don’t spend much time taking care of their skin. Indeed, according to the surveys of the consumer market research, only 1/4th of men are currently using some face cleansers, creams, moisturizers or some other skin care products. Most of them just wash their face with water and then shave and go to their respective businesses. But they should also care their skin, not as the women are doing, but a bit of course. You should think twice about what actually you are doing with your skin. Men have tough skin if matched with women who have delicate skin. There are many products in the market you can use and follow the basic steps to take care of your skin and protect it and nourish it and look younger than your age. There are some steps to follow if you want a glowing skin like the actors have:

· You should regularly wash your face with a good face cleanser. And ensure that it contains alpha hydroxy acid as this can eliminate the dead cells collected over your skin and also cleanse the pores of your skin and uncover a new skin.

· You should use good shaving cream that can provide proper oil to the skin so that razor’s blade glides over it in a smooth manner and thus prevents burns from razor. You can either opt for shaving creams and gels with pressured cans or can opt for shaving soap. Even some people consider shaving brush as a good option as it makes the hair stand straight for a smooth shave.

· You may also use aftershave lotion to alleviate your skin after shave. The lotion can have anti-septic as an ingredient to avoid any type of infection. Or you can use a moisturizer or fragrance moisturizer to soothe your skin.

· Skin has the tendency to dry as the person grows older and its significant nutrients and oils decrease with age. In such case a good moisturizer which includes anti-oxidants such as Vitamin C, A or E can help the person and secure his skin pores from aging. The creams or lotion which contains sodium Lauryl sulphate should not be used as it eliminates natural oil from the skin and hence proved harmful for the skin.

· If we talk about sunscreen lotions and creams that may vary from one brand to another. But sunscreen is the mere useful thing that can prevent the aging of your skin cells and it should be applied on your face or wherever you want whenever you go outside. Sunscreen is the only product that not only moisturizes one’s skin but also prevents sun damage. Some people also suggest that sunscreen must also be used after shaving as a preventive measure. But before using it, it should be ensured that its SPF is at least 15.
