Men out there, you must know that skin care is essential for you guys as well. Men often don’t pay heed to their skin and just think that skin care is limited to only women. This is completely wrong. You need to be aware of the fact that men’s skin has more collagen and elastin which makes the skin thick & firm. This is the reason the signs of ageing are seen much later in men as compared to women.

All said and done, it is very essential for men to maintain a proper skin care routine and take care of their skin. Dermatologists have given certain pointers for men which they must follow religiously.  Follow them and see the magic yourself.

Know your skin type- It is very important to know your skin type.  You can’t even think of taking care of your skin if you don’t know your skin type. You can easily know the skin type. All you have to do is simply take a tissue paper and check if you have oily, dry or combination skin. People who have oily skin have oil on their t-zone (the area including forehead, nose and chin).

Opt for products which suit your skin type- Of course you know that men and women have different skin, don’t you? The products are made considering all these factors. Therefore you must use the skin care products carefully and opt for the one which suits your requirement.

Don’t miss to follow a cleansing routine- Your skin has to battle it out with the pollution, dirt and oil very day. Therefore cleansing the face becomes a must. You need to wash your face with a mild face wash at least twice a day. Remember, your skin gets oily throughout the day and even the pores get blocked, so you must follow a regular cleansing routine. In case, the face wash makes your skin drier, change the product immediately.

Exfoliate your skin- Often dirt and oil gets accumulated on your face and this results in the formation of blackheads and whiteheads. This even creates a layer of dead skin. With exfoliation, you can get rid of this layer and have a smooth & healthy skin. Just in case, you have an oily skin, then opt for a salicylic acid-based scrub.

Do not forget SPF- You must keep in mind the fact that SPF protects your skin from the harmful ultraviolet rays of the sun. This can lead to tanning, sunburn and ultimately early ageing. Therefore, you must make SPF an important part of your skin care plan.  A sunscreen with a SPF of 30 is the perfect option for all men out there and must be used on a daily basis.
