Men love their skin and are just as passionate about shaving, hair, and moisturizing products.
Research shows that Men are starting to invest in facial cleansers, exfoliants, and lotions at the same rate as women in order to look their best, and often they purchase the same types of products.
Both sexes say the main reasons they use beauty products are to look and feel sexy, to look clean and to look younger and healthier. More men than women say they use them because it’s important for work, or to please someone.
Nearly four out of 10 men and women want to accentuate or minimize certain facial features with beauty products. Among the primary concerns: fixing uneven skin tone, reducing the signs of aging and moisturizing and nourishing dry skin.
The survey also revealed that women underestimate how much men spend on products each month, and overestimate what other women spend. While Men are pretty accurate on what men spend, but think women spend twice as much as they actually spend. Either way, both groups are spending on average the same amount on skincare products.
Guys, who are on the fence or skeptical – you may think it takes too much time, or there are too many steps, or that it doesn’t really make a difference. But we assure you that you can have better looking, more radiant skin without adding more time to your daily routine.
Here are some of tips for men :
- There’s really no need for five-step peels or exorbitantly expensive serums
- Layering on too many products can actually irritate skin.
- A daily routine that involves cleansing, toning, and moisturising followed with a weekly exfoliator will cover 99% of your skincare needs. These products will remove dead skin, deep clean pores, allow your moisturiser to hydrate your skin more effectively and brighten dull weathered skin.
- Products can only do so much! Lotion applied to the outside of your skin is only half of the hydration equation—skin needs moisture from the inside out, experts suggest drinking six to eight glasses of H2O a day. Also keep tabs on how much caffeine you’re gulping down. Both can make you dehydrated; but, drinking coffee or booze along with food and water can help counter the dehydrating effects.
- Exercise really is important. Not only does it increase blood flow, exercising will nourish skin cells and keep them vital. Sweating is also a great pore detox.
