Did you know more Aussie men are purchasing skincare products and incorporating them into their daily grooming routine, according to Priceline Pharmacy?
Men too suffer from blemishes, age spots and under-eye dark circles and it is now clearer to them that a good grooming regime can help them treat their skincare issues. Thankfully, if you are a male, taking care of your skin and looking good isn’t as complicated or intimidating as you might think. For starters, male skin tends to be thicker than women’s and is generally less sensitive to ingredients found in common skincare products. Men typically don’t wear makeup either, which further simplifies male grooming routines.
#1 Use a Facial Cleanser: You may have gotten used to using regular bar soap, but that isn’t doing your skin any good. Bar soaps can contain harsh detergents and deodorizers that aren’t meant for the face. They can also disrupt your skin’s pH balance and strip it of beneficial oils. Choose a facial cleanser that can target excess oil, thoroughly remove dirt, oil, sweat, debris and provide much needed hydration. We recommend the Aspect Dr Deep Facial Cleanser or Aspect Dr Mild Facial Cleanser for sensitive skin. Both cleansers will give you that deep clean feel, without leaving you feeling itchy or tight afterwards.
#2 Start Exfoliating: Due to the thickness of a man’s skin, exfoliation is necessary and can be done more frequently than a woman. Scrub away that dead skin buildup on a regular basis, which will help clear out your pores and ease the frequency of white and blackheads. For a superior exfoliation, we suggest trying the Aspect Dr Exfoliator.
#3 Moisturizer: Skin tends to dry out as its essential oils diminish with age, but a good moisturizer can help. You might want to choose a moisturizer that contains antioxidants like vitamins A, C, and E, which can protect skin cells from aging. Steer clear of creams or lotions with sodium lauryl sulfate, which tends to remove natural oils from the skin.
The Aspect Dr Resveratrol Moisturising Cream is a great option for men. Resveratrol works by not only hydrating the skin, but serving as an antioxidant, protecting the skin from damaging free radicals. Hydration is one of the most important aspects of skincare. The Aspect Dr Resveratrol Moisturising Cream is one of the most hydrating creams you will find on the market. It soothes the skin, while softening and balancing.
#4 Apply Sunscreen: Applying sunscreen every day before going outdoors is especially important for men. Men tend to spend more time outdoors than women and are more exposed to environmental factors. There’s also a greater risk of incidental sun exposure just from walking the dog, doing a bit of yard work or simply driving a car (the sun’s rays can penetrate through glass). So, men should always apply a moisturizer containing SPF 30 sunscreen to help fend off the signs of aging.
