Skin care for Men

Why do Men need Skin care?

Men and SkinHow selfish we have been in thinking only women need skin care products!! Looking back it is not our fault at all. If you ask me, men use to pretend that it is girly to use skin care. They thought looking rugged is more manly, so it is not our fault.

But nowadays men have become very conscious about their needs to protect their skin. They are looking for products just for men and not trying their spouse’s products at all. This is evident by the increase of sales in male skin care lines. This has stimulated more research on skin care requirements for the male skin.

Bea, in her book Your skin and You,  further says  “The male skin is about 25% thicker than female skin due in part to the presense of terminal hair follicles over much of the body. This difference is the most pronounced on the face where women have only vellus hairs that are fine and colourless, while men have fully developed terminal hairs that are coarse and pigmented, taking up space within the skin.”

Reasons that been deciding factor of  not choosing skin care:

Disadvantages in leaving it to the last:

Things to consider when choosing products for Men:

Testosterone is the main hormone that creates havoc for men. It causes the production of facial and body sebum, which is the cause for acne or onset of acne. Due to this, acne is typically more severe and longer lasting in men than in women.

Testosterone also is the cause for dry body skin in men about the age of 60 and beyond due to reduced body sebum production. It also triggers the secretion of apocrine sweat, therefore highly perfumed products have to be chosen by the person. That is why most of the men choose deodarant soaps and antibacterial products since bacteria degrades the apocrine sweat rapidly.

Skin care products for men can be similar to women’s but at the same time different, so it is challenging to choose the right one that works for men. They have to consider both the anatomy and physiology of the the skin to create successful skin care for men.

According to Bea ” A basic, effective regimen for preventive male skin care should include twice-daily facial cleansing and twice daily moisturiser application, which should include sunscreen during the day. A toner can be used for an after shave product to avoid the irritation of menthol used in most male shaving products. A well formulated serum unclogs pores and diminishes uneven skin tones.”

Looks like the days of men laughing and complaining about women spending too much time in front of the mirror caring about their skin is over. When they join hands with the same regiment to care for their skin we should protest don’t you think!!

Male skin is vulnerable to sun damage after shaving . Do you know that two or three layers of skin are shed whilst shaving? It leaves the skin more sensitive to the sun.

Tips from Bea:

Your skin should be treated only with the best products, so choose wisely!
