A Note From Women to Men: Get Your Own Skin Care Stuff!


 A Note From Women to Men: Get Your Own Skin Care Stuff!

As a woman who sees countless women on a daily basis, I can honestly say that men have it really easy when it comes to skin care.

They generally don't need to worry about dryness or redness— unless they start shaving. However, as one of the many people who is either male or has close male friends, I know you're not completely off the hook either. Let's face it, a lot of guys don't pay enough attention to their skin just like some women do not pay enough attention to theirs. And this is something that everyone could easily change if they paid more attention and stopped waiting for someone else (or trying to avoid looking at themselves) in the mirror.

I know that it's not exactly a priority for you to have nice and healthy skin, especially if you're in high school or college. You're busy at work, taking care of your family and friends, going out with the guys or girls for fun. We get it—you have a lot of things going on in your life right now.

But when you start to get older and notice how bad your skin looks (trust me—we've all been there!), you'll wish that you had taken better care of yourself sooner so that you could enjoy healthier-looking skin earlier on. Skin care is something that most men don't really worry about until they're getting older.

It's not that I have a problem with that (I mean, I'm in my early 20's), but I do think it's best to start taking care of yourself earlier on. Whether you're 16 years old or 46 years old, there are simple and easy ways for you to start taking better care of your skin. You don't have to go out and buy the most expensive products—just some basic skin brush, soap, and moisturizer will do.

It doesn't hurt to know what types of products are out there though. I understand that some of you already know what you need in terms of gentler or more effective face and body products, but here are a few things that I think would benefit your skin.

The Obvious Stuff:

- Sunscreen - It's always a good idea to use sunscreen every day. This will help keep the sun's harmful rays from damaging your skin and getting it red and dry. There are so many different types of sunscreens out there now (especially sporting goods stores), so it shouldn't be too hard to find something you like.

- Face Wash - Using a face scrub can help take off dirt and oil from your skin. This will give you clean and healthy skin. When you use a face wash, you should always be gentle with your skin and not rub it too hard or else it can become dry. After washing, make sure to rinse the wash off completely so that it won't stay in your pores and clog them up.

- Moisturizer - Nourishing your dry areas can help prevent dryness. You don't necessarily need to use this every day—just when you think your skin needs it more (for example, in the winter). Some people even use it when they're not in the winter (like when the weather is hot). Moisturizers work best on normal to oily skin because it's moisturizing.

- Creams - Some creams are gentle enough for people with dry skin. Nivea Moisturizer is one example of one of these products (really good for dry or sensitive skin). There are also many different types of lotions, which you can use on your face and body.

- Exfoliants - Exfoliating with scrubs or pads will help remove dead skin cells from your face and body. This will make your skin look healthier and fresher. Even the tiniest amount can do wonders for you. It's always said that the best exfoliants are those that have to be cleaned after each use, but if you don't have time for that, you can also buy microdermabrasion systems.

The More Advanced Stuff:

- Soap - There are many types of soaps out there, depending on what type of skin you have (dry, normal or oily). You should wash your face with something at least twice a day. Your skin will be much healthier if you wash it twice a day and do not use too much soap—just enough to clean your face and body.

- Epilators - These are great for guys who have to deal with excess hair. Many guys (as well as girls) are starting to use them instead of shaving because they find it easier and less time-consuming. They're also safer because you don't have to worry as much about nicking or cutting yourself while using an epilator.

- Foil Rasps - Using a rasp can make your face feel extra smooth because it tightens the skin. You should only use this on your face at night in order to not irritate your skin during the day, and you can only use a foil rasp if you have normal skin that's oily or dry but not sensitive. Those of you who have sensitive skin should leave this product alone.

- Tweezers - Tweezing your eyebrows can make them look neater and cleaner. Doing this will also help your skin look better (no more bushy eyebrows); however, if you're not very good at tweezing, you might want to ask someone else to do it for you or take yourself to get it done professionally.

- Scraper - Scrapers are great for getting rid of dead cells on your face and body. This will help get rid of dead skin cells so that the newer ones underneath can come out easier and look smoother. Scrapers are also a very easy and simple way to get rid of blackheads and whiteheads.

- Waxing Tool - Waxing is a great way to get rid of unwanted hair. Using wax can really help make your hair grow less thick, because all you're doing is removing the hair from your face. There are many different types of waxes on the market that you can use, so find one that's best for you.

- Tweezerman Shaped Slant Tweezers - This is a great product for you guys out there who need to remove hair. You don't need to have a lot of money to spend on this. You can use it for your eyebrows or any other stray hairs that are around your face or body that you want removed. It will also pull out ingrown hairs!

- Blackhead Extractor - If you have blackheads, but don't know how to remove them, then I recommend using blackhead extractors. These will pull them right out from your pores and leave your skin looking healthier and much more fresh.


That's all for today! Remember, take care of your skin. Apply sunscreen every day and use soaps, creams and scrubs if you are having dry or sensitive skin. I hope this article was helpful to you guys! It's a good idea to talk to others who have nice-looking skin. You can always ask your friends—they'll probably know which products they use and how they work for them. Good luck!
