Women spend a lot of time taking care of their skin, but men's skin also needs special care to look and feel its best. Men don't necessarily want to spend a lot of time and effort on their skin, but there are some simple things men can do to prevent skin problems and keep their skin in top condition. Here are the top skin care tips for men to follow to have healthy, good-looking skin.
1. Don't use overly hot water.
When men shower, they tend to use too-hot water, which dries out skin and leaves it flaky and itchy. Lowering water temperature just a few degrees will prevent it from drawing moisture out of the skin.
2. Use a good cleanser.
Many men don't use any special soap on their faces, but body scrubs and hair/body shampoo are not designed to be used on facial skin. Biconi's Radiant Skin Facial Cleanser is all natural and full of antioxidants to make skin healthier.
3. Use shaving gel and a quality razor to shave.
A razor on bare or only wet skin can cause many tiny cuts that allow bacteria to enter and cause rashes. Shaving gel gives protection to facial skin, and a quality razor also prevents nicks and ingrown hairs. Shaving in or just after a shower makes hair softer and easier to cut as well.
4. Go alcohol-free.
Alcohol is drying to skin. Even oily skin is best treated with natural products like coconut oil, which can actually dissolve or lift away excess oils from skin. Although it seems counterintuitive that adding more oil to skin would help it, coconut oil actually decreases breakouts for most users.
5. Use moisturizer daily.
Virgin coconut oil is an effective moisturizer that is simple for men to use. Men need moisturizer if they want to minimize wrinkles as they get older, and so that their faces don't feel like sandpaper.
6. Use sunscreen.
Men are not immune to sun damage, which makes skin look older and can lead to skin cancer later in life. Using sunscreen with SPF 15 or higher will protect men's skin from aging and may even save their lives.
7. Stay hydrated.
Drinking 6 to 8 glasses of water each day - maybe more for big and tall men - will benefit the skin by keeping it hydrated, which is a great wrinkle preventer. Without adequate hydration, skin may look flaky or pasty and lack the color that signals health.
8. Follow a healthy diet and lifestyle.
Sugar causes inflammation while fruits and vegetables naturally fight it. Other lifestyle choices that help care for skin are exercising and avoiding smoking. Healthy lifestyles are beneficial for skin while unhealthy ones exacerbate any problems that may exist.
By following these simple skincare rules, men can keep their skin looking younger and healthier while avoiding problems ranging from breakouts to diseases like skin cancer. Products from Biconi can help men have healthier skin while avoiding chemical exposure.
