As a man, you probably think skincare is not for you. Even though skincare is quite important, most men do not see it as something they should take seriously or as something only meant for women. But skincare is for everybody. This beneficial article discusses some fundamental skincare tips for men.
There is a running joke that while women may have up to three or four facial creams at a time men may use just one cream for the whole of their body. This is just to show you how most men pay little attention to skincare. This does not mean that you should use up to four creams on your face as that is not the only thing skincare is about.
Effective skin care is not as difficult or as complex as it may seem. You may think it only deals with bottles of essential oils, serum, and things like that, but skincare is more than that. Skincare is all about doing what is best for your skin. This includes both healthy practices and the use of certain products.
Today, we would be discussing skin care tips for men.
1. Use Creams
As obvious as this may seem, many men are not in the habit of using body creams at all. They might have their baths regularly and be generally hygienic, but they do not just see the importance of rubbing cream after a bath. But rubbing a body cream helps to lock in moisture, preventing your skin from cracking or feeling dry or shy. Just look for a good cream that matches your skin type and remember to cream your body after every bath. Also, keep in mind that you need a cream with more natural ingredients.
2. Wash Your Face Before You Sleep
Before you hit your pillow for the night, take the time out to wash your face. This would remove the dirt and sweat lingering on your face from the day. You can then follow it up with a facial cleanser and a moisturiser to allow the pores in your face to breathe while you sleep.
3. Wear Sunscreen
Yes, you are not going to the beach but wearing sunscreen is still quite important. Sunburns are near avoidable in a climate like ours but it is not something you can detect quickly. Sunburns may also lead to more serious skin problems. Also, using sunscreen would block your skin from absorbing UV rays being radiated by the sun.
4. Shave Well
The way you shave is also a change you have to make. Shaving the wrong way could result in reddish bumps on your chin or jaw. This is what happens when you attempt to shave dry. To prevent bumps, soften your stubble by using warm water to moisten the chin right before you shave. You can also shave during your shower or as soon as you step out of the shower as your chin would still be stimulated.
5. Eat Well
Eating the right thing can have a big impact on the state of your skin. You should eat foods rich in essential fatty acids. You should also eat more of fruits and vegetables and limit your junk intake as well.
