Skin care for men

Among women, it has long been popular to take care of and care for their skin. Many advertisements on television, in newspapers and on the Internet for skin care creams and facial products have often been directed at women. However, taking care of your skin is not something only women should do. Even men can benefit from taking care of their skin.

Men's skin needs just as much care and grooming as women's to look healthy. Men's skin is different from women's, but there are just as many benefits for men as for women when it comes to taking care of their skin. It has become increasingly common for men to use different skin care products and have a routine for their skin care.

To think about skin care as a man

Men generally have 20-25% thicker skin than women and a higher sebum production. This means that the skin is more resistant and the pores are larger. Sebum production and
the thickness of the skin is affected by the male hormone testosterone. This is why boys usually have more acne than girls during their teenage years.

Based on these characteristics, you can choose skin care products intended for men. As the products are adapted to the skin's characteristics, they provide a better result. Important to remember, however, is that this does not mean that all men have the same type of skin.

Some men have more sensitive skin, others more resistant. One can also have characteristics such as oilier or drier skin. It is therefore important to choose products according to your skin type. If you have oily skin, you should choose skin care products for oily skin. If you instead have dry skin, you should choose skin care products for dry skin, etc.

A skincare routine for men

Taking care of your skin regularly is the key to achieving the best effect with your facial care.

It can then be good to create a skin care routine. The most common is to carry out your skin care routine morning and evening. But if it suits you better, you can of course choose to carry out the skin care routine only in the morning or only in the evening.

A skin care routine in the morning usually consists of cleansing the skin with a face cleanser and then lubricating the skin with a moisturizing face cream or day cream.

If you shave, it is important to use good products for this.

An evening skincare routine can actually look the same. If you use a day cream during the day, you can replace this with a night cream. It can also be good to use a facial toner/toner to remove all the dirt and bacteria that the skin has accumulated during the day.
