Whether it be winter, spring, summer, or fall, skin care needs to remain an important part of both women’s and men’s regimens. While women still seem to dominate the skin care realm, men should never be ashamed of wanting to take better care of their skin, implementing routines, and undergoing treatments to enable themselves to put their best faces forward! In this blog, we’ll take a closer look at our best skin care tips for men.
1. Sun Protection
While it is currently winter here in Toronto, Canada, that doesn’t mean you should be skipping the sunscreen at the first sight of snow. Applying sun protection daily has been proven to be an exceptional anti-aging habit that should be implemented no matter what season or weather. Excessive sun exposure can lead to skin that ages prematurely leading to wrinkles, creases, and deep lines. Investing in a superior quality sunscreen ideal for your skin type is one of the tried and true skin care tips for any man or woman.
2. Cleansing and Moisturizing
Sounds obvious right? Men often cleanse their skin less than women. After a workout and a hard day’s work, men should be cleansing their skin with facial cleansing products tailored to their skin type. A bar of soap or body wash simply will not nourish your facial skin the way a specially designed mild facial cleanser will. After cleansing, always follow up with a good quality moisturizer to keep the skin supple and hydrated. During the winter months, it’s easy to continue a similar skin routine as you did in spring or summer, for example. However, with more time spent indoors with continuous heat to keep warm, it’s easy for our skin to become parched, dry, and cracked. Adding a humidifier to your home or bedroom can also improve the air quality of your home and leave you with less dry skin. Be sure to read the labels of the ingredients you’re using and consult with a dermatologist to find the right products for you!
3. Consult with Your Medi-Spa
For more pronounced skin issues that a simple skin care regimen can not reverse, men should certainly consult with their trusted medical spa professionals!
