I assume 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. These tips will help you keep your skin in shape without making you spend hundreds of dollars on products that promise “miracle cures.”
Tip # 1: KEEP IT CLEAN
Did you know that men have approximately 15% oilier skin and significantly larger pores than women do? This basically means you get dirtier. It is very important; no matter what skin type you have, to clean your face every day. Deep cleansing is important. It keeps pores clear, skin healthy and you looking good. Clear Essence’s Medicated Cleansing Bar with Exfoliants is an ideal choice.
Tip #2: KEEP IT TONED
Because men are outside more than women are, environmental debris and pollutants are more a factor to their skin’s health. Toning helps keep the skin clear and firm. These acids actually can reduce the pore size, and help avoid ingrown hairs. They are aggressive and have quick results. The Clear Essence Anti Aging Toner Astringent with Alpha Hydroxy Acid will do just that!
Tip #3: TREAT YOUR SKIN
Depending on your skin type (oily, dry or combination) and the time of year, there are different products that treat and enhance your skin. Different treatments will have very different results. It is important to know your skin’s needs. All types of skin need to be exfoliated. This is the removal of dead skin cells that form daily. This is an essential part of skin treatment. After shaving, you need to moisturize with a product that has absolutely no alcohol in it.
TIP #4: PROTECT YOUR SKIN
Healthy skin is young looking skin. There are key techniques to be followed that will keep you skin looking as young as possible for as long as possible.
Here are the key techniques:
* 1. Avoid over exposure to the sun. Sun damage leads to hyper pigmentation (darkspots) which can develop into serious skin disease. Excessive exposure can also exaggerate and thicken fine lines. Use an SPF 15 or higher on all exposed skin, especially on your face.
2. Stay in shape. Exercise promotes capillary functioning that can decrease premature aging. It also increases oxygen to the tissues, which keeps skin looking young.
3. Eat right. Keep vitamins such as C and E in your diet regimen.
4. Everything in moderation. Too much of anything is never a good idea. Stay away from excessive alcohol, smoking, fatigue and stress. Not only can these factors lead to premature aging; they also decrease facial circulation making you look older.
Diligent practice of the above tips will not have you looking like a cover model overnight. However, your skin will look healthier and younger, allowing you to feel better about yourself.
