While men’s appearance isn’t always as heavily emphasized as women’s, for many men, looking their best is still a priority. For men who want to look young and healthy, skin care is a huge priority. Taking good care of your skin is one of the best, natural, ways to protect your appearance.
If you’re a man looking for ways to get better looking skin, these tips can help.
Prevent Sun Damage
Sun damage can cause premature aging, wrinkles, pigmentation issues, and skin cancer. Protecting your skin from sun damage is one of the most important ways you can keep yourself looking young and healthy. Use sunscreen before going outside and reapply it throughout the day. This is important even in the winter months when you are skiing or snowboarding since the bright snow and high altitudes make you vulnerable to sunburns. You can also prevent sun damage by wearing clothing that covers your skin and staying indoors or in the shade when the sun’s rays are most direct.
Don’t Shy Away From Skin Care Products
Skin care products are usually advertised for women, but most skin care products are actually completely gender neutral. Using a daily moisturizer and nightly retinol cream can help men keep their skin looking young and prevent wrinkles.
Protect Your Skin While Shaving
Shaving can be rough on your skin, so if you shave daily, protect your skin by using a nice, sharp blade, moisturizing your skin before hand with a shaving oil, and using a shaving cream or gel with aloe.
Reduce Your Stress
Stress takes a serious toll on your appearance and your skin, so reducing your stress levels is an important part of skin care. Working out, spending time with friends and family, and going out of doors can all help you reduce your stress levels.
Consider Laser Skin Care Treatments
Nowak Aesthetics offers laser skin care treatments for men that can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, fade scars, and correct pigmentation issues. Two common options are the CO2 Fractional Laser treatment and the Fraxel Laser treatment.
These treatments are minimally invasive and they provide subtle, natural looking results that will improve the condition of your skin. If you’d like to learn more about these treatments, schedule a consultation with Dr. Nowak.
