It’s obvious a man’s skincare regime differentiates from a women’s skin regime! Their skin is thicker, has more oil glands and goes through a lot when being shaved frequently. Razor bumps, ingrown hairs, and breakouts is something that a lot of men deal with. Winter comes with it’s harsh season elements like the wind and low humidity and our skin tends to dry out more leaving it dehydrated and prone to more skin concerns. Wondering how to start clearing up your skin? Here are 5 easy skin care tips for men this cooler season.
1.Don’t over exfoliate
Research has found that men tend to over-exfoliate making their skin extremely sensitive, stripping the natural oils and the layer of dead skin cells that protects your skin. When shaving, you’re stripping the oils leaving your skin dry and flaky. Using pre-shave prep and beard oil will soften your beard, whilst hydrating and protecting your skin, which ensures the razor will glide effortlessly through facial hair and reduce irritation. There is range of GERnétic products from the men’s range that will cleanse, purify and disinfect your skin. La Peau also has a Deep Cleansing Facial 60 min pack for men!
2.Clean your tools
Cleansing skin twice a day is important but be mindful that it’s even more important to clean your instruments that touch your skin daily as they carry a lot of bacteria leading to skin conditions. For example, every time you use a beard trimmer over your skin, you’re picking up oil and dead skin cells with it. Make sure you clean your equipment thoroughly with alcohol each time you use it.
3.Sunscreen is a must!
Even during winter our skin can still be damaged by the sun! UV rays are always present when gloomy, cloudy, or rainy. Wearing SPF is something that every man will always forget or never wear. Medik8’s Physical Sunscreen SPF30 is a lightweight physical, zinc-based broad spectrum face sunscreen. It’s the perfect choice for those prone to redness, sensitivity, and blemishes.
4.Invest in a humidifier
Sometimes for men skincare isn’t something they would be into, because it takes time, effort and simply because they don’t know what they’re looking for? Buying a humidifier for home is something that is so effortlessly easy it can clear skin up in days! Our skin is the largest organ and adding 5% more humidity to it, can make a big difference.
Moisture, moisture, moisture is sometimes all our skin needs! A rich moisturiser is the key to keeping dry skin away. One of the best moisturisers for male skins that we have at La Peau Skin Rejuvenation is GERnétic’s Hydra Men. The formula is a revitalising and nutritive cream that is suitable for all skin types and all ages. It’s a very light cream that is easily absorbed, which doesn’t leave an oily residue.
