Skincare tips for men

Men may put up a stern-macho exterior, but they like taking care of their skin and sometimes it can be a daunting experience. So, here are some skin care tips for men.

Keep your skin clean
To help you get a clean shaven look and prevent acne and pimples, it is important to have clean skin. So, wash your face at night to get rid of the excess oil and dust that you may pick up during the day. This will help you with get a clean shave and avoid cuts.

Exfoliation is a great way to achieve glowing skin. This process gets rid of dead cells and improves circulation. Exfoliate everyday to enhance the radiance of your skin.

It's important to moisturise, but excess moisturiser can lead to skin problems, due to clogged pores. Try using a light moisturiser after a shave and before going to bed. This helps to prevent irritation of the skin.

When you have more than four-five pimples, it is acne. This skin condition is prevalent amongst teenagers, but a lot of adults also suffer from acne as well. Avoid products that trigger acne, follow a balanced diet to reduce the inflammation of the skin, chew your food properly and avoid oily, spicy and pungent food. Also, drink a lot of liquids.

Dry skin
Rejuvenate dry skin by hydrating it. Dry skin may be caused by environmental changes, age, genetics and temperature. Drink water, apply moisturiser and exfoliate your skin, these are the basic steps to fight dry skin.

Oily skin
Hormonal changes, stress, environment and genetics are the reason for oily skin. Wash your face with a mild skin cleanser, avoid oily food, avoid using soaps, especially strong soaps on the face and drink plenty of water.

Blackheads are a precursor to acne as they attract bacteria, dead cells and oil. Blackheads are triggered by hormones and appear on the nose, forehead and cheekbones. Clean the skin regularly with a good facewash and avoid spending too much of time in the sun. Use nose strips to get rid of the blackheads.

Visible holes on the skin and around the nose are known as open pores. It is important to maintain the hygiene of the skin to prevent acne and skin infection. Drink water, exfoliate your skin and apply a light moisturiser to get rid of open pores. Clean pores are less visible.

Men can also get flawless skin and get rid of wrinkles. Wrinkles are prominent on the forehead, the corner of the eyes and the mouth. Over exposure to the sun causes wrinkles, but plenty of sleep, the right posture, a good face wash, an antioxidant rich diet and Omega-3s can reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

Shaving tips
You may get a closer shave, while shaving against the hair growth but this can cause inflammation as it irritates the hair and can damage the skin. So, it is important to shave in the direction of the hair growth.

Don't shave dry
Dry skin causes friction and results in irritation of the skin, cuts, ingrown hair and acne. Lather the shaving cream with water to get a clean shave and avoid skin problems. It is advisable to shave after a shower for better results, as the hair and the skin are supple.

Select the right razor
To avoid irritation of the skin, do not apply too much pressure on the skin while shaving. It is also important to change the blades regularly, to avoid bacterial growth.
