Top Tips to Help Men Develop Healthy Skin Care Routines

When it comes to skin care, men have traditionally kept it simple. Today, it is more common than ever for men to pursue healthier, younger-looking skin and hair. To help those just getting started, we’ve put together our top tips for a healthy men’s skin care routine!

1. Wash your face daily and after exercise.

  • Regular bar soap often contains harsh ingredients that can be drying to the skin.
  • Wash your face with a mild facial cleanser and lukewarm — not hot — water.

2. Watch your shaving technique.

  • Multi-blade razors can work too well or shave too closely to your skin. If you often experience razor bumps, razor burns, or ingrown hairs, use a single- or double-blade razor instead and do not stretch your skin taut while shaving.
  • Before you shave, wet your skin and hair to soften it, and shave in the direction of hair growth.
  • If irritation persists schedule an appointment with our board-certified dermatologists to help with treatment.

3. Moisturize daily.

  • Moisturizer works by trapping water in your skin, which can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and make your skin look brighter and younger.
  • After washing and/or shaving use a daily moisturizer with SPF in the morning and one without in the evening.

4. Wear sunscreen whenever outdoors.

  • Use SPF 30 or greater on a daily basis.
  • Daily SPF helps prevent sun damage that can lead to wrinkles, age spots and skin cancer.

5. Check your skin regularly.

  • This is an extremely important part of any men’s skin care routine. Non-healing spots or moles that itch, bleed, or change color are often early warning signs of skin cancer.
  • Skin cancer is common in men over age 50.
  • We recommend skin checks every 1 to 2 years depending on your risks.
  • Schedule your skin check now with Dr. Cera Hill or Dr. Ghiselli.

Facials are great skin care maintenance to keep your face skin soft, healthy and youthful! Facials don’t have to be fussy to get results! A man’s skin can quickly become damaged just from normal daily activities like your shaving routine and being out in the sun. A facial will help to deep clean skin and soothe irritation.

  • Facials improve skin texture, and improve acne.
  • Exfoliation removes dead skin cells, improves skin tone, reduces the appearance of pore size, and helps the products you’re using penetrate deeper and work better.
