With Father’s Day right around the corner, there’s no better time than now to give your skin the attention it deserves; although when it comes to skincare, men tend to think there’s no need to have a daily regimen. Here’s the real deal — no matter your age or gender, combining regular skincare with a healthy diet can benefit the aging process for both skin and body. But how does men’s skin differ from women’s and what does that mean for individual skincare needs? For starters, men have naturally thicker skin than women and are more likely to have excess oil, which can lead to enlarged pores. Click through to learn more about the gender gap in skincare and aging
. With these differences in mind, the simple steps below deliver an effective regimen fit for a man—one that helps to restore and maintain healthy-looking skin while addressing some of the biggest skincare concerns.
Step 1: Cleanse
Not quite sure where to begin? Start by cleansing skin to help remove dirt and oil—without stripping your skin of the natural oils it needs—with the Hypoallergenic Gentle Cleanser
, leaving skin feeling soft, refreshed and hydrated. An added bonus? The hypoallergenic, non-irritating formula is a safe choice for sensitive skin also. If blue’s more your style, try the Blue Plasma Cleansing Treatment
for instantly smooth, radiant-looking skin without the need to rinse.
Step 2: Treat
After cleansing, apply the lightweight, gel-based Cold Plasma
for an instant infusion of moisture that leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth while addressing the ten visible signs of aging, including dryness, redness and loss of firmness. Looking for a solution to help minimize the appearance of pores? Then the oil-free Intensive Pore Treatment
is right up your alley, tackling the causes of enlarged pores to deliver superior results. Of course, each individual is different so choose the treatment that targets your biggest skincare concerns.
Step 3: Moisturize
Nourish and revitalize skin with a moisturizer such as Hyalo Plasma
or—for more sensitive skin—the Hypoallergenic Nourishing Moisturizer
to round out your skincare regimen.
Step 4: Diet
In addition to using a moisturizer and applying a non-chemical SPF daily, research has shown that the best anti-aging treatments include Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA)—which helps decrease the visible appearance of pores—and Vitamin C Ester to help restore smooth, radiant-looking skin. While these can be applied topically, you can also get your recommended dosage of ALA by incorporating Skin Clear Supplements
into your morning routine. There you have it—a low-maintenance daily regimen to give men’s skin the care it needs and deliver a refreshed, healthy appearance.
