MEN'S GUIDE TO GREAT SKIN
Many different factors affect men’s skin, and put the aging process on fast-forward, including:
FACT: Men’s skin ages at a faster rate than women’s skin
Men Have Larger Pores Than Women Large pores have the ability to take in more toxins and cause damage. For this reason, men’s products need to be more adept at unclogging pores and dealing with blackheads, blemishes and acne. Larger pores also means, more sweat glands, and more production of sweat. Skin with larger pores accelerates dehydration and makes the skin more vulnerable to the damaging effects of the sun, wind, and environmental toxins. Long-term dehydration leads to wrinkles and sagging.
Shaving Degrades Skin Quality The daily shaving ritual of dragging a razor against the skin’s surface aggravates the skin, destroying the hydrolytic film on the skin’s surface, creating scar tissue and increasing dryness.
Men’s Skin Ages Differently Men have an early advantage in the aging game: their skin is thicker and oilier. While women lose elasticity as early as their late twenties and gradually thereon, men’s skin ages later in life with more dramatic results. Around the age of 40 or 50, men’s collagen levels drop dramatically and deep wrinkles start to appear.
TIPS FOR HEALTHY SKIN
Stay out of the sun between 10 and 4. If out in the sun at any time, wear sunscreen. This is the single most important thing you can do to stop premature skin aging. We recommend a physical barrier sunscreen to eliminate skin irritation, provide long lasting water resistant protection and to avoid sunscreen that stings the eyes.
Smoking makes your skin look older, gray and contributes to wrinkles. Smoking narrows the tiny blood vessels in the outer layers of skin, which decreases blood flow. This depletes the skin of oxygen and nutrients, such as vitamin A, that are vital to skin health. Smoking also damages collagen and elastin.
Drink plenty of water. It’s the most important way to keep your skin hydrated from the inside. Purified water without carbonation will give you the best results. Keep in mind that alcohol dehydrates the body (and skin), so try to avoid it in excess.
There’s a reason they call it “beauty sleep”. The skin corrects itself and rests as you get your zzz’s. You should aim for at least 8 hours a night.
A healthy glow caused by good nutrition is something that no makeup or cosmetic will ever be able to mimic. Limit your intake of processed foods, and stick to fresh (organic if possible) produce, lean proteins, and whole-grains. Taking a daily vitamin is also a great idea.
KEEP IT CLEAN
Use a soap and sulfate free cleanser, wash skin gently with lukewarm water, close to your body’s temperature. Hot water opens pores and washes away skin’s own oils. Cold water closes the pores and makes it hard to clean the skin effectively. We recommend 2x per day, morning and night, followed by a quality moisturizing cream.
Hot water and long baths dry out skin. Shave carefully, and pat your skin dry after washing.
A stressful state of mind comes out in pores in the form of a breakout. Set reasonable time limits, scale back your to-do list and make time to do the things you enjoy. Consider incorporating deep breathing exercises, meditation, yoga, or anything else that makes you feel relaxed, into your daily routine.
