When we think “skincare” about 95% of us are going to think WOMEN but, MEN…what about your skin? It needs and deserves all the love and care too. A man’s skin is thicker than a woman’s and they create a lot more oil, their pores are usually larger and more than likely, they are using the nearest bar of soap to wash their face. This causes a complete imbalance of the oil and water levels and leaves the surface tight, flaky and red.
In my office, I treat a lot of men who just don’t know how or what to wash their face with and have a hard time staying consistent with a basic regimen. I try to keep it super simple, start with a gentle cleanser unless they suffer from acne, then we get a bit more aggressive with cleansers that are anti-bacterial and may have exfoliating beads in it to help with deep cleansing and slowing the production of oil. I also recommend a basic, light moisturizer
Skin care isn't the most popular subject for most men around the world, especially in comparison to women, but it is just as important! Click To Tweet
There are a number of benefits for men to starting a basic skin-care routine:
- Keeping skin healthy means it will look younger longer, and that can be important for career (and dating) opportunities.
- Shaving will be easier, skin less irritated and inflamed, and you’ll experience less ingrown hairs, too.
- Having fewer breakouts, dry spots, and oily areas looks more attractive.
- Feeling better about yourself, nothing wrong (or unmanly) with looking better.
All of the benefits above for your at home skincare routine can be achieved with just a couple products

You want to get into the habit of caring for your skin daily Click To Tweet
try to wash your face when you get home from work or leave your cleansers and exfoliants in the shower where you will be able to see them on a daily basis. Sunscreen should be worn daily especially if you work outside.
If you have issues from shaving such as ingrown hairs or irritation in your beard area, having facials can help immensely. I am able to clean out all of the blackheads, remove the ingrown hairs, and calm and soothe the inflammation. Having facials quarterly will help to maintain the health and look of your skin for years to come!

Thanks for the tips and products. Do they work for other zones of one’s body than the face, if one started shaving there? Although I know it’s better waxing for such zones.
I agree men skin should be better taken care of and never overlooked as it’s not as tougher as it seems :).
I wanted to maintained my skin as well as face with healthy and young look.Much appreciate if you could derect me the guideline and the advice.
