The Benefits Of A Mans Skincare Routine
Read below Murad's best skincare routine for men, from cleansing to eating for skin health.
Shower, brush teeth, shave, comb hair.. but what about your men’s skincare routine? Most women master the skincare lingo at an early age, whereas men’s grasp of skincare begins and ends with a razor.. maybe a moisturiser if lucky.
Let me guess the thought of using skincare seems time consuming and pointless right; but creating a men’s skincare routine is essential and doesn’t have to be extensive. Ease into an AM/PM routine that can boost not only the quality of your shave but your outside appearance and how you feel within.
What skin issues should I be aware of?
- Clogged pores due to their larger size; Men have more active sebaceous glands and therefore have more pores than women.
As you age you may experience;
- Dry Skin
- Dark circles
- Undereye bags
How can I help my skin?
Healthy skin begins with a proper self-care routine and skincare products. Choose a cleanser for your skin type and have a regular cleansing routine, to help purify and visibly shrink pores. Murad Renewing Cleansing Cream promotes a healthy, hydrated skin by gently exfoliating and uses replenishing oils to brighten and recharge complexion. Murad Retinol Youth Renewal eye Serum will provide 24hrs of hydration to refresh all round the eye area (even on the lids) and help minimise dryness and the look of wrinkles and crow’s feet.
Applying a daily broad-spectrum SPF of 30 or higher is critical to help protect the skin from damaging sun exposure. UVA and UVB rays are responsible for signs of ageing, sunburn and cancer causing risk. UV light will penetrate through windows, even days in the office will cause incidental sun exposure, that can prematurely age your skin. Murad Oil and Pore Control Mattifier SPF 45 is an oil free moisturiser, that instantly minimises the appearance of pores by 54 percent while delivering 10hrs of oil, shine and pore control.
Eat right for your skin type.
Dr. Murad is a big advocate on eating your water, through fruits and vegetables that are high in vitamins and antioxidants, enhancing the appearance of overall health of skin.
Suggested fruit and veggies;
- Bell peppers
- Red grapes
- Kidney beans
A daily skincare routine will not only elevate your skin health, but also increase confidence and self-esteem. Taking the time to observe the way your skin reacts while introducing new products to your skin will ensure your new men’s skincare routine is what is best for you and your specific needs.
