Men Facial Skin Care Tips

Men have tougher skin than Women. It is more exposed to pollution, UV ray's and stress factors. Most men don't spend a lot of time worrying about skincare. They wash their face, they shave, and they go about their business. Men have approximately 15% oilier skin and significantly larger pores than women do. So, proper skin care is essential for all.

There are some good tips that men can follow to ensure good and healthy face:-

1. Cleaning: Use a good facial wash twice a day; in the morning and at night. Try to avoid soap as it can make your skin dry. Facial skin cleansing is an important part of healthy skin to reduce dirt and germs, keeping pore ducts open and exfoliating surface skin cells.

2. Shaving: When shaving, try using mild shaving cream or gel; shave at least 1-3 times in a week. After shaving, you need to moisturize with an after-shave balm. Avoid heavy fragrant after-shave products too, as they can irritate the skin.

3. Scrubbing: A good facial scrub is essential for healthy clear skin. Face exfoliation helps to speed up the blood circulation and remove the dead skin cells that can cause to look your skin dull and dry.

But, daily exfoliating or scrubbing every three or four days can aggravate the skin problem instead or alleviating it, since the skin is irritated instead of being assisted along to help heal itself. So, exfoliate your skin not too often. Exfoliating can be done every 14 days, and in some cases weekly.

4. Face Toning: Keeping the skin toned with a good toner will help tighten the pores and can firm up your skin.

5. Moisturizing: Moisturizer is essential for every skin! Due to regular shaving, male skin can get dehydrated quite easily. Therefore, it is very important that you keep your face moisturized, which will provide your skin all-day hydration protects from pollutants and bacterial agents. Use moisturizer when your wash your face or after shaving.

Sun damage leads to hyperpigmentation which can develop into serious skin disease. Always choose a sunscreen with SPF 15 or higher. Apply your sunscreen on 20 to 30 minutes before 30 minutes before going out in the Sun.

Exercise can also do a long way to get a healthy skin. Eat fruits and vegetables containing Vitamin E and C into your daily diet is part of proper skincare for men. Other tips that focus on skincare for men include drinking lots of water daily for a more hydrated skin. Stay away from excessive alcohol, smoking, fatigue and stress.

    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 diseases.

    Cleansing of the face is normally followed by a shave. It is advisable to use a proper shaving gel or cream for this purpose. This ensures the beard hair is softer and reduces chances of post-
    shave blemishes. After a Shave it is ideal to use either a toner or an after shave lotion. Toners/
    After shave lotions are meant to remove traces of shaving cream if any, restores the moisture of
    the skin and relieves post-shave irritation.

    Shaving creams should not just have a soothing and relaxing effect on one's skin but shaving creams should also nourish the skin like a water to a plant.
