Does a man need different skin care products and treatments?
Man’s skin is generally thicker and oilier, with larger pores and more active sebaceous (oil) glands. However, due to regular shaving, the skin can get dehydrated quite easily, so everyday use of oil-free moisturizer is very important. Moisturizing gel or cream should be applied after shaving. In fact, some shaving foams/ gel have an in-built moisturizing effect too. Moisturizers should be patted gently over the face and massaged gently using upward strokes.
Cleansing is also very important part of everyday skin care regiment. Water soluble cleansers are preferred. Cleansing helps remove the dirt, grease and pollutants from the skin and helps in preventing pore clogging. The inherent oily nature of male skin makes cleansing an important part of man skin care procedure. Cleansing should be done at least once every day, even better if it is done twice a day. Using soap on the face is discouraged.
Men skin care revolves a lot around shaving. Shaving foam/gel/cream and after shave lotion are one of the most important man skin care products. Serious man skin care requires a proper selection of shaving related equipment and products. One of the main considerations in choosing shaving products should be the skin type (since the degree of oiliness differs from person to person). Alcohol-based aftershaves should be avoided. Proper man skin care also mandates the use of good quality razors. Besides these products and equipment, it is also necessary that you use them properly. Be gentle when using your razor. Do not scratch it against your skin; use a soft and smooth action (after all it’s a matter of removing hair, not the skin itself). Man skin care is not as difficult as a lot of people think. It just takes a few minutes every day, to help you to maintain a healthy skin for present and for future.
