Gone are the days (hopefully) when facial skin care was a woman's arena. Who connected facial skin care with a feminine trait, anyway? I dunno. Don't men have faces and don't they need to care for them too? Sure they do. If we come up from these baseless 'expectations' that society places on men and expects them to be all rugged and rough and not care about their facial skin, then there is actually a chance of making a handsome face happen.
I don't say you turn into a quintessential metrosexual male and sit at a salon with goop over your face, but you've got to agree that there is no harm in administering effective facial skin care and having a face that is healthy and glowing. If you're worried about your image, then let's just say that no one has asked you to go flaunting on the street with the same goop plastered on your face, you can do this in the privacy of your own home. Moving on, I'd suggest you read this article on what men's facial care involves and what one is supposed to be looking into for the same.
Natural Skin Care
Essentially the tips for facial care for both men and women remain the same. All that changes is the fact that men have tougher skin, so the products that are used for men are slightly stronger, with more concentrate. Let us look at what a daily skin care routine should involve and how to get perfect skin with the help of these tips.
Daily Skin Care Routine
You've heard of it haven't you cleansing-toning-moisturizing? Perfect. Now all you have to do is follow it! Not convinced? I'll tell you what, after a day of work, simply come home, wet a piece of cotton and run it over your face. You'll see a lot of grime and soot there. If you don't clean this grime and dirt it'll lead to acne and a dull looking face. That is why cleansing becomes important. Use a cleanser to wipe your face of the dirt, then use a face wash (never soap) to wash your face.
After that is done, use a toner to close the open pores (very, very important) and then finish the routine by using the best face moisturizer for men. A skin moisturizer will ensure that the lost moisture has been restored and it does not lead to stretching of skin which causes peeling and wrinkles. This is especially important for men after shaving cause shaving leads to stretching and damage.
It's not enough to simply follow these three routines. One needs to use skin exfoliation as well. This means that you use a scrub to exfoliate the skin and get rid of the dead skin cells. This leaves the skin looking fresh and glowing. Do this once a week for best results. Other than that, facial skin care for men also involves the use of face masks to boost the health of the face. Choose any natural and herbal products for this purpose. One of the most effective way to boost skin health is to use sunscreen. This will protect the skin from sagging and looking dull and lifeless. One can also go in for facial massages as well as natural and herbal facials.
General Skin Care Tips
Along with these tips, here are some other skin care dos and don'ts that should be followed as well.
- Drink plenty of water to flush out the toxins and keep the system cool.
- Eat a balanced meal that includes more greens, vegetables and less meats, oils and spicy substances. This will ensure that the digestion is effective and no facial skin problems will arise.
- Avoid smoking and drinking cause it will dehydrate your body and lead to dull and sagging skin.
- Exercise daily to improve blood circulation and flush out harmful toxins from the body.
- Do a colon cleanse once in every 15 days so that the system is cleared and it lends to a glowing face.
- Ensure a clean scalp so that the shedding of dandruff (if you have any) will not lead to added skin problems.
- Try to stay away from pollutants and overexposure to the sun.
