Men’s Health – Tips In Taking Care of Your Face
Metrosexuality has become quite commonplace nowadays. This is about men’s skincare as part of your personal hygiene regimen. There are so many products for facial care for men in the market. The following is a guide on what skincare product is best for you.
The majority of males will develop a skincare routine for themselves when they are in their teenage years. Blemishes, acne and other facial problems that may put off the opposite gender is the reason for these routines, but men, in general, will ignore moisturizing and toning their skin. This, in turn, will lead to the problems they experience.
Before we start with what products are the best for you, let us evaluate your skin type. There are four types of skin, namely normal, dry, oily, and a combination of the three. Normal skin is characterized by evenness, fewer blemishes, flake-free, and pores are not visible. Dry skin types usually have flakes in spots and rough to the touch as well as in appearance. Oily skin types are usually greasy, and you can see the pores and pimples or blackheads. The combination skin type has a visible area called a T-zone, extending horizontally through the forehead and vertically down through the nose and chin. The T-zone is oily, yet the cheek area has dry skin.
Now that we have identified your skin type, only four skincare products are essential for your regimen. They are shaving cream, a facial cleanser, a skin moisturizer with an effective sunscreen, and a facial astringent. Opt for those skincare products for men that have anti-ageing formulas. See to it that you have regular skincare facial, maybe about once a month.
Aloe added to your shaving cream should do some wonders. Apply before shaving and leave on for a few minutes to soften the skin.
Choose a facial cleanser that is compatible with your type of skin. For blemishes, use a liquid cleanser that has salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide added. It would help if you used this cleanser instead of soap. Never apply soap on your face, for it will dry your skin. Spread a small amount on your face twice a day, once after waking and another before sleeping. Upon waking, oily deposits accumulate in the face.
Applying it before you sleep will remove the grime and dirt from traffic.
The sunscreen on your skin moisturizer will protect your skin against the sun’s ultraviolet rays. Opt for a moisturizer with SPF 15 or up. Get a moisturizer in cream form if you have a dry skin type. If your skin type is normal or oily skin, get a moisturizer in lotion form. Apply the moisturizer after you apply the cleanser.
Dab on the facial astringent right after shaving. This should close the skin pores and remove the remaining traces of dirt and oil. Never use an alcohol-based astringent if your skin type is dry.
