Man Skin Care

Mens skin care
‘Man skin care’ would seem like an​ alien topic to​ some men . ​
it​ would have been even more alien a​ few years back . ​
However,​ more and​ more men are now realising the​ importance of​ man skin care and​ hence you​ see markets flush with man skin care products too . ​
Even though the​ male skin is​ very different from that of​ a​ female,​ ‘man skin care’ is​ very similar to​ the​ skin care for​ women . ​

‘Man skin care’ too starts with cleansing . ​
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 . ​

‘Man 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 . ​
Alcoholbased aftershaves should be avoided . ​
Proper ‘man skin care’ also mandates the​ use of​ good quality razors . ​
Here,​ swivelhead razors are preferred since they are known to​ reduce cuts . ​
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 . ​

Male skin is​ generally thicker and​ oilier,​ owing to​ larger pores and​ more active sebaceous glands . ​
However,​ due to​ regular shaving,​ the​ skin can get dehydrated quite easily . ​
Hence moisturisers too form an​ integral part of​ man skin care . ​
Moisturising gel or​ cream should be applied after shaving . ​
in​ fact,​ some shaving foams/ gel have an​ inbuilt moisturising effect too . ​
Moisturisers should be patted gently over the​ face and​ massaged gently using upward strokes . ​

Though a​ man’s skin is​ less susceptible to​ skin cancer caused by UV radiation,​ using a​ sunscreen is​ also an​ important man skin care measure . ​
you​ can use a​ moisturiser that combines sunscreen with the​ moisturising effect . ​

Another good option for​ ‘man skin care’ is​ to​ use man skin care products which have natural ingredients like aloe vera,​ sea salt and​ coconut etc . ​
Naturally antiseptic oils e . ​
g . ​
lavender,​ tea tree etc also provide good means for​ man skin care . ​

Man skin care is​ not as​ difficult as​ a​ lot of​ men think . ​
it​ just asks for​ a​ few minutes every day,​ in​ order to​ give you​ a​ healthy skin for​ present and​ for​ future . ​
