From one guy to another, let’s be honest. You care about your appearance. Sure, the media would have us believe that it’s feminine for a man to actually care about his appearance, but we all inwardly do.
I exercise daily and try to eat right, but I’m not supposed to care what my skin looks like? Yeah, right.
The fact is, your face is the most viewed part of your body. Everyone looks at your face each and everyday. Which, of course, includes your girlfriend, your wife, or just other prospective dates if you’re single.
If your skin becomes discolored, wrinkled, or showing signs of aging you’re not going to feel as confident as you did when you were younger and your skin was firm and youthful.
Everyone considers women to be the most worrisome when it comes to their skin and appearance but this is not true as far as I’m concerned. Us men care just as much, even if some of us don’t admit it, and that doesn’t make us vain.
Now, what you need to know as a man is that your skin is different than women’s. We’re lucky in the sense that we shave our face everyday because in doing so, we are clearing off dead skin cells, helping to rejuvenate new ones.
However, shaving also has its downsides, like razor burn, irritation, and the like. There are men’s skin care products out there and they are designed just for our skin, too.
In some ways, we need to take care of our skin better than women because we don’t get to conceal our flaws with make-up. It’s unfortunate that many men just don’t know better and the only thing they use is a simple aftershave lotion.
Men also suffer from the visible signs of aging, which includes age spots, and lines and wrinkles. The cause of this is the same in both men and women, which is the breakdown of collagen and elastin proteins over the years.
This is why, even though I’m in my late 30’s, I already use a daily anti-aging skin care line with ingredients scientifically tested to stimulate collagen and elastin production. I don’t know about you, but I don’t relish the thought of developing wrinkled skin or bags under my eyes.
What this means is that some of the ingredients in a product for men will be the same as that which is found in ones for women, but others will be different.
On my web site, I discuss the ones that both men and women want to look for and reveal toxic ingredients that are bad for skin of all types.
