Skincare is for everyone! When it comes to skincare, men often ignore their skincare routine. From acne to breakouts, dryness to under eye circles, men too need a skincare routine.
3 Things Men Need To Remember About Their Skin
- Men have thicker skin… literally! It tends to be 20% – 30% thicker than women’s skin. However, when it comes to ageing, their skin is more resilient in nature.
- Men produce more oil on that face due to their sebaceous glands. This means they should be particular about face washes and creams that suit their skin type and concern.
- Men have larger hair follicles in general, especially on the face.
Know Your Skin Type
So, there are mainly 5 skin types
- OILY SKIN:
Just as it sounds, oily skin often develops a sheen soon after washing your face and can also be recognised by enlarged pores and a constant build-up of dirt, resulting in blackheads and breakouts. The greatest mistake that men with oily skin make is that they tend to cut back on moisturising, but oily skin can also be dehydrated, which causes the glands to produce more oil as a form of compensation. Exfoliate regularly to unclog the pores and follow it up with a lightweight moisturiser to maintain the skin’s hydration.
- DRY SKIN:
Itchy, red, flaky and tight skin is often an indication that you have a dry skin type. Men with dry skin should avoid any products that are particularly stripping or strong. Opt instead for a gentle foaming or creamy cleanser and moisture-rich moisturisers and hydrating serums. A rich night cream will help to repair and hydrate skin overnight.
- NORMAL SKIN:
Some people are naturally gifted with even skin that’s neither dry and flaky or oily and shiny. While hydration remains important, most well-made products will be suitable for your skin.
- COMBINATION SKIN:
It might be that your T-zone (forehead, nose and chin) are oily, with blocked pores that result in blackheads, and yet your cheeks are dry and tight. This is best described as combination skin and is quite common amongst men.
Exfoliating the T-zone to help decrease oil production will help to balance out your skin follow it up with a light moisturizer.
- SENSITIVE SKIN:
Sensitive skin tends to be quite rare, particularly in men, so irritated or blotchy skin is more often the result of a reaction to certain products. Avoid using products which contain parabens and fragrance.
