Shaving equipments form an important part of skin products. The shaving foam or the shaving cream and the shave lotion must be chosen carefully. These products should be selected according to the skin type. The degree of oiliness varies from one person to another and this should be kept in mind when choosing the products. Aftershave lotions with alcohol base are best avoided. Using superior quality razors are also a very important part of men skin care. Swivel-head razors are always a good choice since they are known to reduce cuts. Apart from the products, it is also important that you adopt a proper way of shaving. Do not rush over your shaving and never scratch the blade against your skin. Be gentle and adopt a smooth and soft action.
Food. If you want to have beautiful skin into your golden years, then you should be eating more fruits and vegetables. They contain vital nutrients like vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. All of these play a vital role in fighting free radicals, which cause your skin to age, so the more unhealthy food you eat, the faster you age.
The skin is our largest organ and it should be easy to maintain, yet we struggle endlessly to create the appearance of health. Radiant, healthy skin doesn’t happen overnight, but it can and does happen. I experienced it when I changed my diet and lifestyle to overcome thyroid disease. My clients experience it too when they focus on living a healthy balanced life filled with whole real foods. Simple, balanced eating and living is what creates the supple, flawless skin that we all desire.
What about the area below your jaw bone, such as your neck, chest, and hands? You also got creams for the cheeks, forehead, nose, under eye area, and chin. What about your lips and teeth?
Stay dry and hydrated. The moisture that’s good for the skin is the body’s natural water content, not water from external sources. So, while you keep the body hydrated by drinking plenty of water and avoiding caffeine and other dehydrating substances, you have to keep the skin from getting and staying wet. Wearing silk liners under outdoor gloves will help – silk dries very quickly so your hands don’t sit in wet gloves – and when you’re handling household chemicals such as dish detergents and cleaning products, rubber gloves are the answer.
Non-comedogenic products are those which do not block the pores of the skin. This usually happens with products containing chemicals like mineral oils. Blocked pores increase the risk of acne and pimples. So make sure the skin cure care for men that you choose, do not block the pores.
Triclosan is an anti-bacterial agent which is widely used in anti wrinkle creams. Scarily, it is also used in weed killers! There is also evidence to suggest it may contribute to strains of bacteria that resist antibiotics, due to its wide use in skincare products. Would you put weed killer on your face? If not, then don’t put any product containing triclosan on your skin either!
