There are different ranges of men’s skincare products and each range has products that are suited to particular skin types. Not everyone’s skin is the same our skin is unique to each one of us. However, men’s skin, just like women’s skin can be broadly classified into types.
Whatever your skincare product you should make sure that you are choosing the one that is best for your skin. There are four main skin types, normal, dry, oily, and combination.
*Normal skin is usually smooth and its pores will be small and virtually invisible. If you have this type of skin then consider yourself lucky because you will usually be able to get away with the most minimal of skin care.Occasionally climate changes may affect your skin and you could find yourself with rough patches. Even normal skin needs protecting from the sun’s harmful rays so at the very least you should use a moisturizer with a UV screen in it.
*Dry skin may need extra care. It is particularly prone to soreness when exposed to the wind and cold weather and therefore should be well moisturized at all times. If you have dry skin then you need to take special care when shaving. There are men’s skincare products that are specially designed to eliminate the extra dryness and soreness that results from having to shave. Skin balms are good for this. Dry skin can be flaky and have a dull appearance, in extreme cases it may become chapped and cracked and for this you need a cream that is especially designed to help with it. You should moisturize morning and evening – it also helps to drink more water.
*People with oily skin are often plagued by blackheads and spots because this skin type tends to attract the dirt. Oily skin also tends to have bigger pores. If you have oily skin then your face will feel oily and look shiny. You need men’s skincare products that are specially formulated for oily skin.
*Combination skins are just what they say they are, a combination of dry and oily skin. There are products that are made to suit this skin type. Normally the oily part tends to be in the middle of the face and across the nose while the cheeks may feel dry.
Taking care of your skin is the same procedure for all men. Most men need to shave at least once a day or every two days. After shaving and washing the face you should moisturize it.Use a moisturizer that has a sun screen built into it – the most favored is SP15. At least once a week you should exfoliate – this gets rid of all the excess dry skin and stimulates the blood flow. Most ranges of men’s skincare products will contain exfoliants.
If you follow the above routine and make sure that you are using men’s skincare products that are specially formulated for your skin type then you should not have too much trouble.
Men’s skincare products are usually formulated to suit specific skin types. The main types are normal, dry, oily and combination skins. Use the right products for your skin type and stick to a regular skin care routine if you want to get the best from the products.
