Skin Care for Men
When it comes to skin care, men need to take as
much care as women, particularly due to the daily use of cosmetics
like shaving creams and aftershaves.
Men's skin does differ from that of women, though
only subtly. Thetotal skin thickness tends to be 25 per cent thicker
in men than in women. The collagen content of skin is higher in
males. (Remember collagen is the fibrous substance that gives your
skin body and suppleness).
Also, men seem to produce more sebum or oil,which
forms a protective film on the skin's surface. So aging of the skin
in men is slightly slower, as compared to that in women.
Basically, men also need to cleanse and
moisturize the skin as well as use an effective sunscreen. Facials
are beneficial too.
Men Skin Cleansing
For the face, use a face wash depending on your
skin type. A lot of men do have dry and/or sensitive skin, in which
case they may need to use 'Cetaphil', the water-soluble face wash.
If you have oily skin, one of the foaming face washes is preferable.
For the body, you can use any soap provided it
does not dry your skin. On the whole, body washes are recommended.
