The Men’s Guide to Skincare
Who says skincare is just for women? A man’s skin needs just as much, if not more, TLC than women do. Our guest blogger, Med Spa Mike, breaks down the importance of a skincare regimen and offers his best tips. Read what he has to say in the Men’s Guide to Skincare below!
The Men’s Guide To Skincare
A man’s skin can take a beating throughout its lifetime. Things like shaving, prolonged exposure to the sun, and even being active out in the elements can damage a man’s skin without him realizing. But for most men, figuring out the right approach to skincare can seem like a daunting and much too complicated process. I’m here to tell you it doesn’t have to be. Knowing where to start can be a lot easier if you know what a man’s skin needs. First off, men have thicker skin than women. They have larger pores that produce more natural oils which increases their likelihood of developing acne problems. And according to The Cancer Treatment Centers of America, men are about three times more likely than women to develop skin cancer. With all this considered, here are some easy steps men can take to jumpstart their skincare regimen and combat most common skin problems.
Bring it in for service!
The same way you let a professional service your car, let a professional service your skin. The Aestheticians at Deep Blue Med Spa can jumpstart your skincare regime with a variety of facial treatments. With years of experience and expertise, they can customize a treatment plan specifically tailored to your skin’s needs. Whether your skin is too oily, or dry and damaged, Deep Blue Med Spa can help “reset” your skin and get it back to a fresh and healthy state.
Maintenance is Key!
All the repair that a facial does for your skin is useless if you don’t maintain the results. It is important to use the correct products so that your skin can keep its newfound, healthy glow. Thanks to the products available at Deep Blue Med Spa, maintenance is easy. Just remember these three simple steps: Cleanse, Clear and Protect.
- Cleanse using a gentle soap-free cleanser that will remove surface oil, unclog pores, and promote exfoliation. These are three vital steps in keeping men’s skin healthy. My pick for this step is Deep Blue’s Clarifying Wash.
- Clear with a gentle exfoliation scrub to remove dry dead skin cells, excess oils and residue to reveal healthier, younger skin. Exfoliating regularly is especially important for men as it will allow for a much smoother and less irritating shave. Warming Bamboo Scrub is my go-to product for exfoliating.
- Protect using a product containing physical blockers like Micronized Zinc Oxide to provide the highest level of broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection. Complete Complex Sunscreen is what I choose to keep me protected and moisturized in one easy step.
