Skin Care Tips for Men - Moisturizers for Men

Skin care tips for men

For most men, skin care consists of a daily shave followed by a splash of good-smelling aftershave, but skin care for men shouldn't stop there. Stress, aging and exposure to wind and sun are tough on the skin, and daily shaving makes the skin even more sensitive. Good skin care is especially important for men because a man's skin tends to be more oily than woman's skin. Here is the tips about Moisturizers for Men.

Most men don’t bother to use a body moisturizer. That’s OK if your skin is naturally oily. But if tends to be dry, a moisturizer can help. The quickest solution is to use a moisturizing shower bar or cleanser. Another option: shower lotions and emollients that you put on in the shower and then rinse off. If that doesn’t keep your skin moist enough, apply a moisturizer after showering. Focus on the areas where skin typically dries out: the elbows, knees, shoulders, and lower legs. “Moisturizing your legs is particularly important and something many men don’t think about. Chronic dry skin, or xerosis, of the legs can exacerbate eczema and cause skin to turn a brownish, woody color as you get older,” says San Francisco-based dermatologist Vic A. Narurkar, MD, a past president of the American Society of Cosmetic Dermatology and Aesthetic Surgery.

Many moisturizers trumpet the anti-aging properties of the antioxidants. But there’s little scientific evidence that they protect the skin from oxidative damage when applied topically and at levels contained in these products. Some botanical ingredients, however, may have healing properties. Aloe, for instance, long used in moisturizers, has been shown to speed skin healing. If you have trouble with acne, look for a liquid cleanser and a moisturizer that contain glycolic acid, salicylic acid, or benzyl peroxide. These active ingredients remove dead skin and clean out pores, preventing acne.
