Here’s a collection of 5 men’s skincare tips that will help you look younger for longer. To young men, anti-aging skincare might seem unimportant. So, don’t concern yourself with anti aging, but do concern yourself with healthy skincare. Avoid skincare that has ingredients that are known carcinogens or will prematurely dry and age your skin.
1. Daily Cleansing, Deep Cleansing Masks, and Exfoliation
Men’s skincare must include daily cleansing. Cleansers should be gentle, no micro-beads, or other abrasives. Exfoliation is a damaging and unnecessary step.
Every week or two, use a deep cleansing mask that includes kaolin, a clay extract, bentone gel, and allantoin. These naturally absorb excessive oils and work to pull grime and dirt out of your pores.
To protect the faces of you shaving men, anti-aging skincare should be anti-inflammatory. Daily shaving increases redness, irritation, and inflammation. Chronic inflammation plays a role in aging and skin diseases, such as cancer.
The best choice for an aftershave is witch hazel. It soothes abrasions and shaving nicks, prevents infection and reduces inflammation.
Whether you have combination, oily, or dry skin, you still need a daily moisturizer for your face and body. You may think of moisturizers as greasy; probably because most of them contain petrolatum, mineral oils, and other petroleum derivatives.
Those oils are greasy. But, there are a number of non-greasy oils that effectively balance sebum production. So, they can be used on oily, dry or combination skin, with success.
Men anti-aging skincare must include moisturizer because excessive dryness speeds the aging process and causes thinner, sagging skin all over the body. For daily use on your face, the best men’s skincare creams include grape seed oil, an effective antioxidant, and a moisturizer, all in one.
Men anti-aging skincare products should provide necessary antioxidants. Everything in your human body is about balance. If that balance is thrown off, you suffer in one way or another.
Age disrupts your natural balance of free radical production and antioxidants in your skin. Free radicals are necessary for some basic bodily functions, but they must be rendered inactive by antioxidants or they can damage your cellular membranes, DNA strands, and collagen.
Not only does free radical damage cause wrinkles, it also causes cancer. And overexposure to the sun and environmental pollutants are known to increase production of free radicals. Unfortunately, some sunscreens and other common ingredients in lotions and creams also increase free radical production.
Men’s skincare lotions can restore the balance and prevent free radical damage if they contain enough antioxidants in the proper formulation. The best compound is called H-EQ10.
H-EQ10 is a combination of natural vitamin E (tocopherol) and coenzyme Q10 (ubiquinone), two of the most important antioxidants for the skin’s health and appearance. Only the best products designed with men anti-aging skincare in mind, contain H-EQ10.
5. Safe Enough To Eat
In a nutshell, you want to look for men’s skincare solutions that include natural ingredients that are safe enough to eat. Otherwise, you run the risk of using something that could be hazardous to your long term health.
