Men's Skin Care Advices

More men than ever are interested in taking better care of their skin and a simple daily ritual of cleansing and moisturising will keep man skin and hair looking healthy.

Today's men are increasingly aware and concerned about the health and appearance of their skin. Although men may be increasingly aware of how to care for their skin, some factors may be preventing them from doing so. For many men, skin care is a mere afterthought. Beyond the world of shaving their faces, it is rare for a man to devote time to his skin, especially the skin on his face. However, proper skin care is essential for the present and the future. 

Skin is the body's first line of defense against sickness, germs and disease. Men should practice a skin-care regimen twice a day, just as many women do.

Here's some advice that will help you maintain naturally healthy skin.

  • Soapless soap, lotions and body cleansers are better for man skin because most soaps actually strip the moisture out of your skin. Soapless soaps have a combination of water and oils. So actually, they remove the dirt and debris and actually replenish the moisture at the same time without drying the skin out.
  • Moisturize after washing your skin whether you use a traditional soap or a cleanser. When the water evaporates, the skin will dry out. So the best time to moisturize is right after bathing.
  • Know your skin type. Most man will often believe one of two things: "I have terribly oily skin," or "I have terribly dry skin." In most cases, it's somewhere in between. Independent of whether you have oily skin or dry skin, the general guidelines of washing your face once a day apply.
  • Dry Skin: For most dry skin is visible. Skin will be flaky and dry, and it can be irritated easily. Moisturizer can remedy that.
  • Oily Skin: This skin type is difficult to diagnose accurately. But do note that frequent washing will not clear up oily skin - it will only irritate it.
  • Mild Exfoliation. Use a mild abrasive soap or cream. Do not do it more than once a week or once every couple of weeks. The idea that if you sand your skin down it's going to get smoother and fresher doesn't always apply.
  • Use Sunblock. Use a compound with a sun protection factor of at least 15. That gives you about 94% to 96% protection against the ultraviolet B or burning rays of the sun.Taking care of your skin starts at a young age and using the right products is determined by knowing your skin. Try these all natural products, to give your skin the healthy glow it naturally has and protect yourself from those harmful rays.
