Skin Care Tips for Men

Understanding your skin type will help you learn and pick correct products for your skin.

Face wash – Say no to soap bars rather choose a cleanser suitable for your face.

Acne prone skin – choose products displaying non-comedogenic, oil free.

Sensitive skin – mild, fragrance-free.

Wash your face daily and after exercise.

Choose lukewarm water and not hot.

Watch your shaving technique;

For some men, the multi-blade razor can work well, but it shaves to closely to the skin – causing a rash or small boils or ingrown hair. Rather choose single or double blade razor. Always shave in direction of hair- to avoid ingrown hair and boils.

Choose products like moisturizing shaving gels and creams. Do change your blade after five shaves to minimize irritation.

Moisturize daily – it’s helped by trapping water in your skin which can reduce the appearance of fine lines and make your skin supple and younger.

Always wear a sunscreen. To help prevent sun damage and aging a sunscreen is a must. Simple sunblock sprays or gels are available which are hassle free option for men. Choose spf 30 and above.
