When it comes to skincare, men usually want a simple no-fuss routine that will get the job done, without cutting into their time.
Men also don’t want to slather on products that are heavily scented or that will leave their skin too dewy, they prefer to leave that one for the ladies!
In this article we want to share a few top skin care tips for men, that will help to keep your skin clear and healthy without anyone noticing that you have an obvious skin care ritual, although in our opinion, it’s something to be proud of!
Exfoliation is essential for preventing ingrown hairs
Most men shave on the daily and this means ingrown hairs, something that plagues, or has plagued, every man at some point.
The problem with many exfoliators, however, is that they can be quite harsh, and anything that has the potential to scratch the skin actually puts it at risk, because this impacts the skin’s lipid barrier.
Why not whip up your own DIY exfoliator at home? This way you know exactly what goes into it, you will need just two ingredients!
Retinol can give your skin a boost
Retinol is a vitamin A compound that has some serious skin benefits from reducing breakouts to minimizing fine lines and wrinkles, but sadly it seems to mainly be targeted at women.
Men suffer the same skin care woes as women and should, therefore, also be using a product to protect and prevent against any potential damage and retinol will help with all of this and more.
Be sure to use retinol at night, so it can amplify your body’s natural nighttime process, when skin cells are repaired and renewed.
Retinol does make skin more sun-sensitive so be sure to slather on a high SPF during the day time.
A daily moisturizer is essential to balance oil
Ever noticed how men get told they look “distinguished” as they age? This may be down to the fact that their skin produces more oil and they have larger pores, which is good news when it comes to aging gracefully.
Too much oil can become an issue though, and contribute to breakouts, so a moisturizer is essential to balance sebum (oil) levels to reduce the incidence of blackheads and whiteheads, while ensuring that the skin is perfectly hydrated at all times.
Our FRESH Daily Moisturizer contains soothing aloe to calm down inflamed skin while providing the ideal dose of moisture. It has a lovely and light fresh citrus scent that men will love, no heavy flowery fragrance here!
As you can see, a men’s skin care routine doesn’t have to be complicated. These three simple steps can make all the difference!
