Best skin care for men! Skincare Tips for Men!

Almost all men have a wrong notion that skin care is only for women. They don’t realize it is for them too. Just as they workout to keep fit, they need to take care of their skin too. What is the use of having a youthful body with an old weather beaten face affixed to it? Yes, your skin is exposed to vagaries of nature and it does demand little bit of attention. In addition to Sun, dust, and heat that play havoc on it, you damage it further in the course of shaving, scrubbing etc. In long term, it will result in a rough, wrinkled skin. Being laidback men, you tend to neglect skin care. However, skin care is not that complicated at all, if you acquire and keep few simple habits, and that too, it doesn’t take too much time. Having flawless skin makes you stand out, a point of admiration and would attract women to you :-). This is every man's dream, isn’t it?

Four common skin care routines apply to all skin types, whether fair men skin, black men skin, or Asian skin. They are,
1. Cleansing
2. Toning
3. Moisturizing
4. Exfoliating

Following these simple routines ensures a beautiful skin free of blemishes, pimples, wrinkles, and dryness.

1. Cleansing:

Cleaning your skin just with water doesn’t help much. Water has got it’s limitation in skin care. It is not effective in removing embedded dirt and grime. This is where the cleansing chips in. Cleansing is a standard in skin care. All other features follow cleansing and you shouldn't even think of skipping it. Cleanse the face 2 times a day, once in the morning and once in the night before hitting the sack. It removes the oil, dirt, and grime from your face, thus clearing the pores for your skin to breathe freely. There are big range brands of facial cleansers available in the market. Do some look around on-line for them and purchase the ones that suites your pocket. I would say any known brand would do. Buying cosmetics on-line has an advantage; you can take your time to read the product descriptions or go through their reviews to choose the best suitable facial care products. There are huge range of products, skin care for black men, and organic skin care for fair and black skin, remember. Make your choice and start cleansing!

2. Toning Using Toner.

Toner further removes the dirt and residue that was left behind by the cleanser, meanwhile tightening the skin and balancing the pH of your skin. Skin pH balance is an important factor deciding how your skin is going to be. Proper pH balance would make the skin soft, healthy and would visibly reduce the chances of wrinkles. Toners restore the pH balance of your skin. There are many toners available online. I recommend you to try toners with Aloe and Chamomile that you can splash on your face to freshen and soothe the skin.

3. Moisturizing:

After the first 2 steps you have 60% beautiful skin now. Moving forward to make it 100%, you need to first moisturise. It’s that simple. Remember to use moisturisers after using the toner. Moisturisers provide vitamins, antioxidants, and hydration to your skin. Antioxidants once again play a major role in skin’s health. They guard you skin against free radical that damage your skins cells. Ensure that the moisturiser contain powerful antioxidants, else it is not worth it using it. Choose a moisturiser that goes well with your skin type. I recommend you to go for a water-based moisturiser if you have oily skin or contrastingly go for an oil based one if your skin falls under dry skin category. Once again, look around on the Internet to search and buy Moisturisers.

4. Exfoliating.

Congrats, you are almost at the end of the regime and there is beautiful skin waiting for you. The final thing to do is exfoliate the skin. Contrastingly, it is damn very easy to do than pronounce it. Exfoliating removes dead skin from your skin surface thus bringing to the surface fresh youthful skin that was underneath it. Apart from reducing the dullness in your skin, it tends to keep your pores clean. Take care to exfoliate at least once a week. Avoid scrubbing too hard as it may result in skin redness and irritation.

So, that was simple isn’t it? OK, here is bonus point that I would like to discuss. There are few things that you can do to have a prefect skin after having a shave. Predominantly, shaving is the primary culprit for dull skin. Wrong shaving style tends to roughen your facial skin and is the cause for ingrown facial hairs that are very painful. Use shaving lotion immediately after the shave to prevent septic setting in on the skin. However, the after-shave lotions tend to remove moisture from the skin. To tide over this, apply a moisturizer immediately after the using the after-shave lotion to retain the skin moisture.

These are few tips to get you started on the skin care routine. Although they seem simple, they make a great difference in the way your skin looks and feels. Look around on the Internet for range of products and take your time in making a choice.

Wish you a great skin!
