Men want their skin to look and feel healthy. Just like women, they deal with issues such as skin sensitivity, acne and ageing, but skin varies according to gender. Male skin – on both the face and the body – has some features that differ from female skin and, with regular shaving, it is often treated differently too. In general male skin is thicker, oilier and ages differently. Men have more active sebaceous glands, and therefore more pores, than women. Both their sebaceous glands and their pores are larger than those of women. Because of this, men benefit from a tailored approach to skincare to help keep their skin at its natural best.
1.Simple but effective routine at home : cleanse , moisture, protect
Cleansing is the first and most important step in any skin care regime. It removes dirt, grime and excess oil build-up to leave your face irresistibly clean, making it the perfect skin refresh after a long day. A men’s skincare routine that doesn’t include a cleanser is basically no skincare routine at all.
It may sound obvious, but keeping your skin hydrated is crucial if you want your complexion to look clear and refreshed. Choose a moisturiser that is intended to work with your skin type.
Sure, some guys are born handsome, but those looks won’t last forever. Daily protection from UV rays is the most effective way of reducing the signs of ageing.
2.Exercise – Getting the heart rate up and improving blood circulation, can help to deliver oxygen and nutrients to the skin which keeps the skin healthy, promotes collagen production, and promotes new skin cells which keeps the skin looking glowing and is also helpful for anti-aging.
3.Diet – A healthy diet may provide you with clearer skin and it can affect moisture levels. Drinking water is one of the healthiest habits you can have for your skin and your entire body. To help keep skin healthy we need to make sure we are eating a variety of foods every day. This can help to make sure we get all the nutrients our body (and skin) needs to stay healthy. Foe example antioxidants protect our body cells and cell linings from damage by radiation and free radicals. This includes our skin cells so ensuring we get plenty of these should help keep our skin healthy too. Antioxidants are found mainly in fruits and vegetables, especially those fruit and veggies that are bright in colour such as berries, tomatoes, beans, sweet potatoes and dark green leafy vegetables.
