Health and Beauty: Men – new year, new skin care

Man putting on shaving cream smiling

RAZOR bumps, pimples, red sensitive skin is all very familiar to men especially after shaving when their skin is in need of some serious help. Men’s skin care is a topic that every day is more and more usual in guys conversations.

We have arrived to a time where men feel comfortable expressing their needs of looking good and feeling good and where they can express it freely without any kind of shame. And guess what? It seems men’s skincare is here to stay and every man’s skin is in need of some care.

After all why would their skin be any different to a womans, it is exposed to the environment just as much if not more than a womans. The term metrosexual appeared on media all over the world some years ago to describe men who care about how they look. But why give a name to something that has always existed?


If women can take care of themselves why shouldn’t men? After all skin care is more than just cosmetic, it has a positive impact on our health and how we feel as well.
The term metrosexual will disappear in the next few years, as personal grooming will become an important part of men’s lives, not only to get women, but also to impress at jobs.

Men skin care includes different areas, and also brings up different questions. It begins by getting to know your skin type and discovering what issues you might have, for example is your skin prone to produce ingrown hair, razor bumps, black heads, spots and hyperpigmentation?

There is a range of specialised products and treatments to treat all of these conditions, remember there is a solution to every skin problem and it is possible to turn dull, problematic skin into clear, fresh, radiant skin.
Men skin care is something you should definitely consider if you want to feel better about yourself. Take advantage of the years you live in.

As you will experience, taking care of your skin will bring you many benefits, being the best of them a truly healthy skin. Men skin care is a growing trend that is taking the world by storm, and taking men around the world to a better life.
