“Grooming is the secret of real elegance. The best clothes, the most wonderful jewels, the most glamorous beauty don’t count without good grooming.” ~ Christian Dior
Grooming includes healthy hair, oral, and nail care, but it should also include skin care, even for men. After all, our skin is the largest organ in our anatomy and one that is often neglected by many. It is, however, just as an important part of grooming as showering, brushing your teeth, and using deodorant. Skincare for men is somewhat different than it is for women, as men naturally experience different skincare issues and have thicker skin which means they tend to have more oils in and on their skin.
An effective skincare routine doesn’t have to include trips to the spa or hours in the bathroom applying products. With the right knowledge and products with the right ingredients, it can be easy to incorporate a skincare routine into your daily life.
Washing Your Face
Washing your face is one of the best things you can do for the skin, as well as for caring for your beard if you are a lover of facial hair! It is important, however, that the cleanser that you use is gentle and free of harmful ingredients such as the ones covered here. Washing your face isn’t just about cleansing it of oil, dirt, and grime. It is also essential for preventing bacteria from growing on your skin, removing damaged skin cells tainted by polluted free radicals, and balancing oils in the skin.
Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! We can’t express this enough! The health of your skin is reliant on its ability to retain moisture. By utilizing a moisturizer daily, you help your skin in many ways. Moisturizing helps to create a protective, soothing layer between you and potentially damaging environmental factors. It also helps to slow down the reduction of your skin’s naturally produced moisture in addition to replacing some of the oils that your skin naturally makes.
Moisturizing has also been shown to help prevent aging by nourishing your skin. Those that moisturize regularly have been shown to have fewer wrinkles, most likely due to the skin barrier which it creates. Moisturizing can also help to prevent outbreaks of common skin conditions such as eczema, as dry skin is the most common underlying trigger for the skin condition.
Studies from Oxford University have found that men have a higher prevalence of developing melanoma, potentially because of higher testosterone levels in the blood in comparison to women. This means that it is essential that men protect their skin from harmful UV rays, and the best way to do that is by utilizing sunscreen daily on the face and other areas of the body that will be exposed to the sun. Unfortunately, according to board-certified dermatologist Corey L. Hartman, “According to reports, only about 14 percent of men use sunscreen on their faces and other sun-exposed skin when going outside.”
Shaving Skincare Tips
- Always cleanse before shaving, as it will help to open your pores and allow for an easier, smoother overall shave.
- Use gentle shaving cream on moist skin to prevent rashes.
- Use an exfoliant several times a week to remove dead skin cells to help prevent ingrown hairs.
- AVOID ALCOHOL-BASED AFTERSHAVE PRODUCTS.
- Apply moisturizers and/or serum after shaving.
