Men, you need a skincare routine, too!

The skin is the largest organ of the human body. It makes up 16% of our body and covers us entirely. Being the largest organ, it deserves some recognition and commitment to its maintenance such as a proper skincare routine.

But throughout this time, most men believe that protecting their skin, investing in appropriate skin care products, and constantly seeing dermatologists are just a thing that only women do. That is not the case. Without a proper skincare routine, men increase their chances of contracting skin cancer, having pimple breakouts, and dealing with premature wrinkles.

If you’re one of those guys, here’s a better look at why should men develop a skincare routine.

Skincare helps you avoid Pimple/Acne Breakouts

They say that your face is your moneymaker. But how much of a moneymaker can it be if it’s covered with pimples and acne spots? Breakouts are not just a women’s thing. Men suffer from breakouts as well, especially during their puberty stage. In order to prevent massive pimple breakouts, you should take care of your skin by developing a skincare routine that matches your skin type.

For starters, a mild facial wash, skin toner, and moisturizers are some of the first few products that you should invest in if you’re going to build a skincare routine.

Prevent Sun Damage

Most of the guys like to be out in the sun all the time. Whenever you’re doing your everyday run or playing ball with your buddies, you’re getting exposed in radiation that comes from the sun.

Sun damage, can be very noticeable and can sometimes be dangerous. Sunburns, dark spots and actinic keratosis are some skin diseases that are often caused by exposure to the sun. But we can prevent those by regularly applying sunscreen or a moisturizer with sunscreen.

Makes you look younger

Wrinkles and fine lines are a result of lost collagen, which can occur for a number of reasons such as increasing age and sun exposure. Men are not exempted from signs of old age. In order to prevent those signs and help you look young, taking care of your face, with appropriate cleansers, moisturizers, and sunscreen can reduce current wrinkles and prevent future wrinkles from appearing.

Moisturizers can go a long way. American actor Neil Patrick Harris, who’s commonly applauded for his “ageless” look throughout the time, said that his secret is by applying moisturizers every day. Drier skin accentuates wrinkles on the face. Moisturizers, although they do not get rid of wrinkles completely, can help in preventing their severity of them.

Like women, all men should also develop a proper skincare routine. Establishing a good routine is the best strategy for ensuring that your skin remains healthy, smooth, and youthful for years to come.
