skincare tips for men

Skincare is more often associated with a routine that women follow. However, men need skincare too for healthy and glowing skin. It is totally a myth that men do not need skin care. Men’s skin care is as important as women’s skincare. Men have different skin than women; their skin is more prone to acne than women’s. Hence, they need a skincare routine specifically designed for their skin.

In this blog post, you will get to read top men’s skincare tips to make skincare better and easier.

Why is it important to understand your skin type?

Different skin types need different skincare. Knowing your skin type helps you better understand the types of skincare you need. Choosing the right skincare products is important to make your skin look young and healthy.

Ways To Find Your Skin Type

  • The Bare-Faced Method

The bare-faced method is one of the easiest ways to determine your skin type. You only need to wash your face and then wait. Do not apply any product to the face after washing and wait for half an hour.

You will have to see if the skin turns dry. Wait for 30 minutes more and recheck your skin. If the skin turns dry after washing, it will indicate that you have dry skin.

If your face has a shine on your nose and forehead, know that you have combination skin. If your complete face is shiny, your skin type is oily.

  • Blotting Paper Method

The second method is using blotting paper and holding it in different areas on the face. Look at the paper to check the amount of oil absorbed.

If the sheet has absorbed oil only from your forehead and nose, it means you have oily skin. If the sheet has absorbed oil from all over your face, it means you have an oily skin type.

Effective Skincare Tips for Men

1. Save Your Skin From Hot Showers

We know how relaxing it is to get steamy hot showers after a long day at work. However, you should know that hot showers can make the skin dry. Hot water takes away the natural oils of the skin and the skin becomes flaky, irritated, and dry.

If it is tough for you to give up on soothing hot showers, make sure to not leave it dry for more than 5 minutes. Right after the shower, consider using a moisturiser on the skin to regain the moisture it has lost.

2. Stop Using Soap To Cleanse Your Face

It is important for men to cleanse their faces after a tiring day and after waking up. However, it is seriously recommended to not use a bar to wash your face.

Instead, find a sulfate and paraben-free face wash. It will help to keep your skin hydrated without being too harsh on the skin. For oily skin, prefer face washes with ingredients like tea tree oil, or citrus. Activated charcoal face wash is one of the best faces washes for oily skin.

For normal skin, use natural face washes like papaya face wash. Also, choose to avoid cleansers that have fragrance as they dry out the skin.

3. Read The Label Before Buying A Product

As we said, using the right product is necessary for you. Therefore, it is important for you to look at the ingredients carefully before buying them.

See if the product has any certain ingredient that you are allergic to. There are brands that offer natural skin care for men that can be beneficial for the skin.

Use a face wash specifically designed for men with contents like Vitamins C, D or E. Choose an antibacterial men’s face wash for regular skin. For sensitive skin, use mild cleansers with no fragrance and no chemicals.

4. Avoid Fatty Foods

It is important for you to choose the ideal nutrients for your skin. Nutrients like protein E, vitamins A, C, and K, and zinc help to repair damaged skin.

Vegetable oils contain omega-3 fatty acids, which can help repair damaged skin. However, a high-fat diet may cause a risk of skin cancer. Hence, you should always consider a low-fat diet despite the conflicts.

5. Get An Adequate Amount Of Rest

Resting for your skin is really important to avoid eye bags and dark circles. Get at least 7-8 hours of sleep as our skin also rests and revives while we sleep.

If your eyes are still swollen, put two spoons in a fridge for half an hour and press them on the eyes. This majorly helps in reducing swelling.

6. Follow A Skincare Regimen

Make sure that you perform a basic skincare routine every day after washing your face. Wash your face before bed and after coming back from outside.

Exfoliate the skin about twice a week. Use a nice moisturizer like Vitamin C cream after every wash. If you are consistent with your skincare routine, it will ultimately make your skin look healthier and glowing.

7. Take Care Of Your Lips

Lips are part of the face that does not get much pampering. However, you should exfoliate them from time to time. Unattended lips can make the skin chapped and feel dry. Use a lip scrub and use moisturizer after to nourish the lips well.

8. Stay Hydrated

Maintaining the right level of hydration is important to manage the internal and external water balance. Drinking enough amount of water can hydrate your skin and make it look clear and healthy.

9. Pay Attention While Shaving

Using the right razor is very crucial when it comes to avoiding burns or cuts. Use a razor with one or two blades and avoid stretching the skin. After shaving, use a moisturizing aftershave. Prefer shaving in the direction of the hair.

10. Pat Dry Your Face Instead Of Rubbing It

After cleansing the skin, pat your face instead of rubbing it with a towel to dry it. Rubbing too hard can irritate the skin.

11. Apply Sunscreen Always

Using sunscreen 30 minutes before leaving home is crucial to avoid skin damage from the sun. It is even recommended to use sunscreen even when you are home. The UV rays of the sun can also weaken the skin and cause bruises.

12. Manage Stress

Stress can promote the process of ageing and show early signs of ageing. It may lead to fine lines and wrinkles, and cause dry skin and acne. It may also lead to skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, and rosacea.
