Healthy skincare habits for men are rarely shared because some feel that grooming is primarily a practice for women. Unfortunately, due to this stigma, there are a limited number of skincare products geared towards men and even less information on how they should take care of their skin. Although men should consider adopting a skincare regimen, they should also keep in mind that proper skincare can be simple and effective.
Studies show that men have skin that is often oilier and thicker than women due to high testosterone. This makes them more prone to acne and blemishes. Because of these issues, men should consider the following when developing a skincare routine:
Wash your face twice every day.
Dirt and oil can build up on the face throughout the day. Cleansing regularly can remove impurities on the skin and help avoid breakouts. Most experts recommend washing the face in the morning and evening to keep skin clear and free from excess debris. Bronze Glory’s Glycolic Exfoliating Wash is ideal for men struggling with breakouts or oily skin. It contains glycolic acid, which mildly exfoliates the skin and deeply penetrates pores to wash away oil and dirt quickly and thoroughly.
Pat your skin dry after washing.
After cleansing, pat your face dry instead of rubbing. Rubbing your face can cause additional dryness and friction that can irritate the skin, causing redness and sensitivity to moisturizers and other products. When drying the face or applying products, remember to be gentle. A good rule is to use about 50% less pressure than you would use on your body.
Invest in a good toner.
A good toner can treat your skin quickly and effectively. Most toners rebalance the skin, provide additional hydration, and brighten and fade dark marks. Bronze Glory’s Active Botanical Toner has over 12 active botanicals to give your skin the nourishment needed without causing tightness in the skin. It is also simple to use in your skincare routine, and you can keep it in the car or a bag as a quick skin refresher on the go.
Moisturize skin every day.
It is important to remember to moisturize the skin. Moisturizing is an important step in skin care for men and can help prevent dry, flaky skin or excess oil production throughout the day, leaving skin feeling smooth and even. Bronze Glory’s Balancing Moisture Cream is a lightweight moisturizer that, if used after toning, can hydrate the skin and protect it from dryness and excess oil production. In addition to moisturizing, you should also apply sunscreen daily to protect your skin from UV rays that can burn the skin and cause premature aging.
A great tip for both men and women looking to elevate the look and feel of their skin is to stay hydrated. Drinking water regularly flushes the body of impurities and toxins that can often show up on the face. New research shows that you may not necessarily need eight glasses of water, however if you feel thirsty, you should drink water throughout the day.
