Thanks to an overwhelming number of creams, cleansers, masks, moisturizers and other beauty goodies available in the market, finding the right skin care product seems like a Herculean task.
But that doesn’t mean you should stop making an effort altogether. Your skin is the largest organ of the body and its first line of defense against pathogens. Building and following an effective skin care routine is crucial to strengthen your skin’s barrier against harmful bacteria, UV rays and free radicals. Consistent and proper skin care also helps tackle common skin concerns like acne, blemishes, dryness, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, dull and uneven complexion, among other things.
This is why taking care of your skin is as important for men as it is for women. “Men need to pay more attention to their skin because they are just as susceptible to sun damage and its effects on skin health over time as women are,” says Dr. Marnie Nussbaum, a New York-based board-certified dermatologist specializing in non-invasive aesthetic rejuvenation.
So, gentlemen, if your ‘skin care regimen’ consists of washing your face with a bar of soap and a splash of spicy aftershave then you need to step up your skin care game!
