Young, healthy-looking, skin is not only for the ladies. Men need it too! We no longer live in a time where rough, dry-cracked hands are sexy. Maybe a rough look, which usually means a light five o’clock shadow, but it needs to be clean cut and trimmed, right? So, guys, here’s what you need to look for to take care of your skin.
Men’s skin tends to be oiler than women’s skin. The result may be a greater susceptibility to more severe and lasting acne in men and drier skin earlier in women. My recommendation is for men to use a face bar. Some of them come in a grey color (a more “manly” color than the white or pink for the ladies). Face bars that take care of the first three steps of creating healthy skin (cleansing, exfoliating, and freshen) are best for the guys who are on the run! A 3 in 1 bar will give the guys a smooth and healthy feel to their skin. Using a face bar also begins the process of reducing the visible signs of aging by reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
A key ingredient to look out for is Gotu Kolu (centella asiatica) extract, which has a mild astringent in it and is a great toning agent for the skin. Guys, after cleaning your face with the bar, follow up with a moisturizer that has an SPF of 25. This not only moisturizes your skin it protects your skin from sun damage from UVA and UVB rays.
