In honor of Father’s Day, we want to highlight skin care tips for men. In reality, skin care for both men and women is largely the same, but some key differences and habit-forming behaviors are still relevant to the male population. Continual practice of skin care habits, from consistent use of facial cleanser and sunscreen, to using a good razor will aid in fresh, healthy skin for men. Here are some key components to skin care we recommend:
Find a Good Facial Cleanser
Consistent facial cleansing is important in the prevention of clogged pores and acne, at Collins, we have the best cleaners on the market that are both effective and gentle on the skin. Check them out here.
Buy Quality Razors
Prevent acne or shaving mishaps like razor burn or knicks with a razor that is not only high quality, but also fits your skin sensitivity level and beard coarseness. The use of shaving gel or cream will drastically help soothe the skin, as well as provide a layer of protection so the razor will glide with ease across the skin.
Routine exfoliation, once or twice a week, will slough off any dead skin cells that are blocking the pores to keep the skin clear of acne. Exfoliating any more than that can overly dry out the skin and actually cause acne to worsen, even for oily complexions.
Always Apply Sunscreen
No matter the weather, rain or shine, always apply sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher on all exposed skin. This will help prevent premature aging, sun spots and skin cancers.
Sugar and dairy consumption has been linked to acne, so avoid processed foods as much as possible and remember to eat leafy greens and vegetables instead. These foods are chock full of healthy vitamins that are shown to improve skin and overall health.
Find a Routine and Stick To It
Ultimately, none of these recommendations of proper skin care will improve skin without consistency. Forming good habits will help enhance the skin over time and deliver lasting results!
