Many people think having a skincare routine is only for women. Men, in fact, do have skin. Skin needs to be taken care of, regardless of if it is seen as feminine or not.
Everyone has skin, and at some point in our lives, we will all struggle with a skin issue.
Prioritizing your skins health is important because healthy glowing skin is the ultimate flex. So here are some skincare products to help with common skin care issues in men such as acne or breakout.
Men are prone to a condition called premature skin aging. It is basically a condition that makes a person look older than they are. When people get older, their gets skin tends to get loose and wrinkly. Not having a skin care routine will speed up process of your skin’s maturity. I will discuss some products that can prevent long-term damage.
You only need four products to have a good skincare routine, a cleanser, treatment moisturizer and a sunscreen.
A face cleanser is used to get all the access make-up, residue, microbes, dead skin cells, oils, sweat and other types of daily pollutants from the face. Not removing this from your skin can result in long term damage that three-in-one body wash cannot fix. You don’t want your money to be going down the drain.
CeraVe Foaming cleanser is affordable, easy to find at the store, it won’t irritate or sensitize your skin, and it has great ingredients. This product works for all skin types but is more targeted towards people with oilier skin.
La Rouche-Posay Toleriane Purifying Cleanser has similar benefits to the CeraVe Foaming cleanser but in a different formula. It does all the things that a cleanser should do, without your face feeling tight afterwards. This is caused by the cleanser stripping too many oils from your skin, resulting in dry skin. This product is great for curing dry skin.
A treatment product is going to help get rid of any issues that you are having with your skin. So, breakouts, acne, wrinkles and the many more issues someone can have within their skin. My recommendations are hard since there is so many different problems someone can have in their skin. For the particular issues of breakouts, acne and premature skin, I recommend an exfoliant. Scrubs can stay on your feet because they are harsh on the face. Chemical exfoliations are gentler to the facial skin.
Salicylic acid is an ingredient in Paula’s Choice 2% BH Liquid Exfoliant. Many people go from full-blown breakouts to clear skin just from using this product. It is a reliable skincare product.
The Bliss Clear Genius Liquid Peel is also a great exfoliant. It includes types of ingredients that are going to get rid of all the dead skin cells on your face. This has a blend of ingredients so it can treat multiple issues. Both of these products are pretty intense so you want to be sure to read the instructions to ensure you will receive the best results.
Moisturizer can also help with the tight, dry skin feeling. You should never wash your face and then leave without applying a moisturizer. Our facial skin goes through a process called water loss. This is where lose water through the surface of your skin. A moisturizer helps to ensure that you are sealing in your skins you lose water even more to make sure we don’t lose moisture. This will also result in soft skin.
The Rovectin Cream Lotus Water Cream is very light weight but still is hydrating. Your skin is not going to feel dry. It’s a cream moisturizer that has amazing ingredients and is affordable compared to other water creams out there.
The Youth to the People Adaptogen Moisture Cream is great for people with dry skin. Its moisturizing but it feels extremely light and delicate to the skin. It also doesn’t leave a greasy feeling to the skin like some moisturizers do.
Sunscreen is key to a skincare routine. Some skincare specialists go as far to say that the rest of the skincare routine is pointless if you are not sealing the deal with sunscreen. The sun will make any skin problems you have 10 times worse, and it will also make your skin mature 10 times faster.
The Sun Bum Mineral Tinted SPF is a good facial sunscreen because it doesn’t leave a white cast. It does have a tint but the only reason the tint is there is to ensure it matches your skin color.
The Krave Beauty Beet Shield is a sunscreen that has no white cast at all. This product really does not feel or look like a sunscreen because it goes on completely clear. This product would be very useful to people with darker complexions.
Men now have a simple skincare routine and are more informed of what the steps are they need to take to have good skin. Don’t feel intimidated to start all the steps at once. If there is one step I recommend you start doing first, it would be wearing sunscreen. Because that is going to do the most for your skin.
Whatever you decide to start with, feel free to take it one step at a time. There is no shame in starting out slow. You know your skin more than anyone else.
