For many men, skin care is an afterthought. Beyond shaving his face, it's rare for a man to devote time to his skin, especially the skin on his face. However, proper skin care is essential for men to maintain young-looking skin.
To begin with, men should realize that taking care of their skin doesn't really take much time - a few minutes a day is all that is necessary.
The following tips offer some great ways to keep a man's skin looking great:
- Clean Your Face
Men have approximately 15 percent oilier skin and significantly larger pores than women do. All it takes is a couple of minutes to cleanse facial skin twice a day to keep skin free of oil and keep pores clear. Instead of using the bar of soap in the shower to wash your face, try using something specifically for the face, such as Biomedic Purifying Cleanser ($37.50), which contains gentle exfoliating ingredients.

- Keep Your Skin Exfoliated
Environmental debris and pollutants are also a factor to the health of their skin. Some products contain alpha hydroxy acids that can make pores appear smaller, help greatly with ingrown hairs, and gently exfoliate skin cells for smoother skin texture. Try Biomedic Conditioning Solution ($37.50) after cleansing skin, also available at UW Health Transformations.
- Protect Your Skin
One of the best ways to prevent skin from looking prematurely aged is of course to apply sunblock. It's tricky to find one that gives just the right amount of moisture without feeling thick, heavy or looking shiny on the face. Applying sunblock with an SPF of 15 or greater to all exposed areas of the skin - especially the face - will without a doubt leave you thankful in the years to come!
Remember to reapply every 2-3 hours to get full protection. Try SkinMedica's Environmental Defense SPF 30 ($40). It is oil-free and will never leave skin looking oily. For added moisture, try LaRoche Posay Anthelios SPF 15. Both products are available at UW Health Transformations.
