Typically when most people think of cosmetics and skin care, they generally think of it as being a topic talked about among women. But men use skin care too! Image is important, whether we like to admit it or not. When we look our best we ultimately feel our best too.
If you're a male who struggles with your skin this blog is for you. I'll share with you some helpful tips to help you on your way to good looking skin that will enable you to feel confident with your appearance. If you already have great skin, these tips will help you maintain it.
If you suffer from acne prone skin you should stick to products that are non-comedogenic, this means that the product will not clog your pores and cause breakouts. Stick to products that are lightweight and non greasy.
Here are a few tips to help you when choosing your skin care:
- Look for moisturizers that are described as lightweight. The texture should be thin but still provide moisture, it should absorb quickly into the skin and not feel like it is layered on the surface. Choose products that have water-binding agents and soothing ingredients like hyaluronic acid, vitamin E and glycerin.
- Your cleanser should clear out your pores while getting rid of excess oil, dirt and grime. Look for cleansers that will not disturb your skin's natural moisture levels. Cleansers that contain aloe vera extract are beneficial for men with acne-prone skin since they help soothe irritation and redness.
- Use a sun screen to help protect your skin from UVA and UVB rays. Choose a formula that will quickly absorb into the skin and doesn't feel greasy or too dense.
- Choose shaving products that are soothing, lubricating and non-irritating. Products that are alcohol free is always best. This will help with pore clogging prevention while helping to prevent acne and irritation.
To help prevent breakouts be sure to wash your hands frequently, avoid touching your face if your hands are unclean. To prevent the spread of germs around your jaw line wipe down your mobile device, keyboard and /or remote controls with an antibacterial wipe or rubbing alcohol every week.
