By nature, most men are less likely to spend a lot of time on skin care. But it’s especially important for guys with sensitive skin to maintain a daily regime that doesn’t harm the health of their complexion and doesn’t lead to frustrating bouts of acne, razor burn, rashes and more. Here are some top tips to a good skincare routine.

  1. With sensitive skin, reading ingredients lists on skin care products is a must but deciphering what’s effective and what could irritate sensitive skin can be tricky.
    Avoid fragrances: Choosing fragrance-free options in both skin care products and household cleaners to prevent irritation.
    Opt for fewer ingredients: A shorter list of ingredients on the label means fewer chemicals for your skin to potentially react with.
    Beware even if a product claims that it’s hypo-allergenic, there’s no guarantee that it’s safe for sensitive skin. Also, it’s a common misconception that “natural” implies “gentle” or “mild,” but your body can easily react to these ingredients as well. Natural ingredients that are less likely to irritate sensitive skin include rose, lavender, chamomile, aloe and witch hazel.
  2. With the amount of shaving men usually have to do to maintain a well-groomed look, it’s common that skin irritation lingers longer than desired. Shaving is a harsh activity that easily irritates sensitive skin. Reduce rashes and bumps by shaving in the shower, or immediately following when hair is soft and pores are open. Also, be sure to allow shaving cream to sit on the surface of skin for a minute or two before shaving, use a sharp razor blade and shave in the direction of hair growth to help skin stay clear, soft and free of irritation.
  3. Protecting skin from the sun is important for everyone. For men with sensitive facial skin, keeping irritation at a minimum and well-protected from harmful UV rays is a must. Look for sunscreen formulas that contain physical barriers – including zinc oxide and titanium dioxide – which are not only less likely to bother skin, but are more effective in blocking out harmful UV rays than their chemical counterparts.
  4. Maintain moisture – Keeping skin happy and hydrated is an important step in every guy’s skin care regime. Always apply moisturiser to damp skin to help seal in moisture.
  5. Cleanse and nourish – Men with sensitive skin should only use face and body cleansers that are free of soap, which can strip skin of its protective moisture barrier. Skip fragrances and look for formulas that don’t contain alcohol.
  6. help: clear skin men – a must to contain those pesky skin breakouts. It contains exactly the same ingredients (100% natural) as help: clear skin and works in the same way (we just changed the box so you don’t have to get in touch with your feminine side!). Take 1 sachet a day with your favourite beverage or soft food (hot or cold), stir until dissolved and look forward to clearer healthier skin in as little as six to eight weeks.

Sensitivity is no excuse for neglecting a skin care routine. Every man deserves to have an effective regime that nurtures, defends and supports healthy skin from head to toe. By combining these tips with a lifestyle that’s low on stress and full of healthy habits like daily exercise and a nutritious diet, it’s possible for any guy to achieve a clear, attractive complexion at any age.
