- For Men
Women have been obsessing over their skin care routine for years but it doesn’t seem to be as popular in the men’s world. Globally, women spend approximately $91 billion US on skin care while their male counterparts spend a meager $28 billion US. So that begs the question, are guys just saving money or are they slacking on their skin care routines? The answer is: both. Whether it’s because they have facial hair that covers a lot of the skin on their faces, or because it’s simply not the social norm, men do not put nearly as much effort into their facial skin care. Your trusted Vancouver Laser Centre presents you a guide for the men out there who don’t want to spend excessively, but do care about their skin.
There are numerous benefits to adopting a basic skin care routine. These benefits include:
Here are a few basic tips to maintain a solid skin care routine:
Determining your skin type is an important part of establishing the right skin care routine for you. It will determine the products you are using and the additional treatments you may require.
Oily skin: Oily skin has an all-over shine, may have blackheads or white bumps, generally has acne breakouts, and often enlarged and clogged pores.
Combination skin: This is the most common skin type. This skin has both oily and dry areas. The oily areas are generally in the center of your face while cheeks typically range from slightly to very dry.
Dry skin: Dry skin has a rough and uneven texture and may even feel tight or show visible flaking. Pores are typically small and blackheads and breakouts are rare.
In addition to having a regular and solid skin care routine, your skin may require additional help. Many men are embarrassed to go to the skin care clinic to have a cosmetic procedure done. However, things like microdermabrasion can drastically reduce wrinkling and aging. If you truly care about your skin and your look, you will adopt a skin care routine that keeps your skin strong and healthy!
