The elements can be rough on the skin – given men are more susceptible to oily skin than women, it is crucial that they take care of it properly. Preventing oil secretion while keeping the balance of the skin is vital for an enduringly appealing complexion.
Compared to women, men’s skin has more collagen and elastin that makes their skin thick and firm and, hence, the signs of aging appear much later as compared to women. Therefore, it is important for men as well to take care of their skin by following a cleansing routine, say experts.
Dermatologists have identified pointers for skin care for men to follow:
Know your skin type: This is the first step to organise your skincare routine. Take a tissue test and see if you have dry, oily or combination skin. Generally, people with oily skin tend to have oil on their t-zone (forehead, nose, and chin). Check this using a tissue paper and get to know your skin type.
Choose products as per skin type: Since there is a difference between the skin of males and females, the products are made specifically keeping in mind all those factors. Make sure to use skin care products mindfully. Do your research and find the right product for you .
Bonfire & Bourbon offers products for all skin types, from a gentle and completely vegan Beard Balm that nurtures your skin and hair and makes it easy to style your beard – to face washes that are good for all-skins types as well as a wash that is ideal for normal to dry skin. Our Anti-aging Serum with 2% retinol, 0.5 caffeine and lavender and jasmine is ideal for all skin types. Important to note, as with all retinol products it is important to apply some sun lotion or moisturiser with SPF if you plan to spend a long day out in the sun. Our entire line has been developed with men in mind – check out our products and see if they are right for you. www.bonfireandbourbon.com
Follow a cleansing routine: Men should wash their face twice a day using a mild face wash that suits their skin (and their beard if they have one). As the skin tends to get oily throughout the day and block the pores, it is important to follow a regular cleansing routine. If your face (and beard) wash dries your skin, change to a product that better fits you.
Exfoliation: All that dirt and oil accumulated on the face results in blackheads or whiteheads and forms a layer of dead skin. Exfoliation sheds off this layer and brings out a smooth, healthy skin.
Bonfire & Bourbon’s all-natural Face & Beard wash contain many natural ingredients that help to gently exfoliate your skin, such as Manuka Honey, Lavender, Glucoside, Citric Acid, Black Pepper, and other natural ingredients.
