Skin Care Tips for Men

 

# Keep it clean. Men’s skin is approximately 15% oilier and their skin has larger pores than women which mean that your skin becomes dirty quickly. Deep cleansing is important to keep your pores clear, skin healthy and to keep you looking great. Look for a cleanser that is strong enough to cut through the grease and dirt but gentle and mild on your skin. The Y-natural 102 foaming cleanser is gentle and effectively cleans without stripping the skin of its own protective oils.

# Avoid exposure of your skin to the sun for a long time as too much exposure damages your skin and predisposes you to skin cancer. Use an effective sunscreen that contains a SPF 15 or above to protect your skin.

# It is all in the routine, only a few minutes a day is all that is necessary. Caring for your skin does not require too much time. Try not to use a harsh soap or aftershaves that will excessively dry out your skin.

# Avoid skin injury on your face when you shave.  If you are using a blade to shave, be sure to cover your facial skin with a thin stream of hot water before applying a shaving product. Let it stay for few minutes on your face and allow your skin to absorb steam better. Pete shaves while he is still in the shower or if you prefer, shave in front of the mirror at the basin. Do it immediately after your shower while the pores are still open from the warm water, the hair is softer and makes for an easier shave and while the hair follicle is still soft. Shaving is actually beneficial to men; it provides a form of exfoliation to remove dead skin cells and helps the skin to regrow and renew itself. Use a gentle shaving cleanser that is effective without stripping the skin of its own protective oils.

After shaving apply an aftershave or toner that is an antiseptic, astringent and is soothing to the skin. A toner that helps to reduce sebum secretion which is beneficial to oily skin and will soothe nicks and cuts and help to restore the skin’s pH balance, plus it smells great too. Men with sensitive skin should use an aftershave or toner that is alcohol free. The pure heaven calm balm aftershave lotion helps protect and soothe the skin after shaving, and can also be used as a nourishing face moisturiser suitable for all skin types and especially suited to those with shaving rash and sensitive skin. The pure heaven shave bar is enriched with organic olive oil, skin softening shea butter, a rich creamy lather perfect for daily nourishment of your skin.  The Mokosh natural shaving soap is rich in moisturising oils and has added bentonite clay to draw out impurities; it has earthy and sensuous scents of cedarwood, geranium and patchouli.

# Always Moisturize Your Face – It is very important that you keep your face moisturised, which will keep your skin healthy and soft as well. Never forget this part of your facial skin care routine, after shaving, and after you apply an aftershave, you have to moisturise your skin with a moisturiiser that doesn’t contain any form of alcohol or heavy fragrance. Heavy fragrant products irritate your skin and make your skin drier. Moisturisers with level of sun protection ingredients are also suitable. Sun damage is the number one cause of premature aging in the skin.  Look for a moisturiser that contains antioxidants, that are light and fast absorbing, nourishing and healing to help prevent razor bumps. A moisturizer should also state that it is non-comedogenic. This means that  the formula won’t clog the pores and cause a breakout. The Y-natural 502 Hydrate Antioxidant moisturiser also has high concentrations of potent Ginkgo biloba, rosemary leaf, olive leaf and green tea protect the skin from free radicals and other environmental factors that can cause cell damage and premature ageing – you can smell their delicious earthy goodness!

# Exfoliate your skin regularly. Exfoliating the dead skin cells present on your skin promotes good skin tone for you. It is better for you to repeat the process of exfoliation for at least 2 to 3 times in a week. The Y-natural 200 Buff marine skin polish contains natural marine extracts, healing and gentle astringents of Niaouli and Rosalina, and antibacterial, antiseptic Cypress and Geranium.

Consistency is the key to keeping skin healthy. The face should be washed once in the morning and once at night to remove the day’s dirt and grime. With diligence the skin can be dramatically improved and shaving irritation will be a thing of the past. Simply following the above skin care tips and your skin will be smooth, touchable, and smelling great.
