You are probably looking for men’s facial skincare tips because you have noticed some ageing around your eyes, or your partner perhaps mentioned that you should look into skincare for men. Maybe it is because your skin feels dry and tired. Or you want to look like the metro man depicted on billboards.
Whatever your reason, I have good news for you. Gone are the days that facial skincare was purely associated with the feminine human species. Facial skin care for men is prevalently more important than it was 50 years ago. With the rise of the modern metro man, society is aware and supportive of the fact that men too, should have a good skincare routine.
If you are spending a lot of time outdoors because of the type of work you do, you are exposed to the harmful rays of the sun – well done for looking into facial skincare for men. Sweating a lot when working out at the gym, or going for a run, also has an effect on the health of your skin. Dirt on your skin will clog your pores when working in the garden or on that DIY project. These are all good indicators that you should definitely be implementing a routine.
Facial Skincare for men: Simple tips
- Wash your face daily, once in the morning and once in the evening. Make sure to use a good quality face-wash.
- Watch your shaving technique. Before you shave wet your skin and hair to soften it. Always use moisturising shaving cream and shave in the direction of your hair growth.
- Check your skin regularly for new spots or moles. Should you notice anything suspicious make an appointment to see a dermatologist. Remember men over 50 are at higher risk of developing melanoma (skin cancer) than the general population. If caught early it is treatable.
- Wear sunscreen everyday. Protecting your skin in this way, will help avoid sunspots, wrinkles and melanoma.
Every mans skin is different, and although men have thicker skin than women, you still need to take care of it. Knowing what type of skin you have will help you when purchasing products to use.
Different Skin Types
- Normal Skin
- Dry Skin

A beauty therapist can help you determine which category you fit into. Skincare product you choose will depend on the type of skin you have. “oil free” cleansers are good for acne-prone skin because they wont clog your pores. Fragrance free products are advisable for sensitive skin.
