Just as your body requires energy for an active lifestyle, your skin requires essential nutrients to keep its healthy appearance. It’s a fact that active skin ages faster than passive skin. If you’re spending time in the sun and you are not using a daily skin care regimen or sun care product, you’re probably stretching your skin to the limits.
It’s common knowledge that men and women differ in many ways. The way a man’s skin looks is primarily caused by differences that are hormonally conditioned. Men tend to have larger pores, as well as oilier and thicker skin than women. They are also less likely to put a lot of time into their skin care regimen. Every man owes it to himself to take care of his health and youthful appearance. But taking good care of your skin doesn’t have to be time consuming or complicated. Think of these steps as your skin’s daily minimum requirement.
This may be the most important step you can take to ensure the health of your skin. Cleansers are designed to remove excess oil, dead skin cells, and dirt. A good one to try? The Murad Clarifying Cleanser removes 99.9% of bacteria within one minute while soothing skin and reducing acne breakouts. Toners help remove traces of soap residue, surface skin cells and excess oil from your skin. They also remove dirt and perspiration from oilier skin types, and can tighten pores. Great for use as aftershave, Murad’s Clarifying Toner leaves your skin feeling cool, clean and refreshed.
Even in the best of circumstances, a daily shave can have an abrasive effect on your skin. The red bumps and skin irritations that often appear after shaving, occur because minor nicks and cuts have been exposed to bacteria on your skin and traveled down into the hair follicle. This condition, called Folliculitis, is easily countered.
Before shaving, use an antibacterial cleanser. This creates a smooth, clean canvas for shaving and prevents the typical inflammation around the hair follicle. After shaving, follow with a toner and at night, follow with an exfoliating treatment to help prevent clogged pores.
