Men and Skin Care PSCStaff November 23, 2013 Skin Care In many ways, beauty and skin regimens seem like the kind of routine designed for women. In a woman’s world, there are plenty of skin care treatment options, makeup products and cosmetic procedures designed to improve their skin and allow them to look young, healthy and radiant. However, there are not many skin products marketed directly to the male population in Orange County. Dr. Mohsen Tavoussi believes that all people — regardless of their gender — should take the time to take good care of their skin. Why Should Men Wash Their Face Daily? The male skin is known to be thicker, allowing it to generate more oil. Oily skin is prone to breakouts and other skin blemishes and can ultimately lead to early wrinkles and facial lines. In order to keep the face clean and fresh, men should take the time to wash their face every day. A gentle face wash solution will help to remove dirt and oil from a man’s face, and allow him to look his best at all times. How Can I Improve My Shaving Techniques in a Way That is Best for My Skin? Most men have to shave their face on a daily basis, so it’s important to develop a shaving routine that benefits your skin. Choose shaving products, such as shaving creams that are designed to be gentle on the skin. A swivel head razor will help you avoid cutting your face and thus allow you to prevent scabs, scars and even infections. Always be sure to use an after shave in order to refresh your skin, but avoid using an after shave that has an alcohol base as it can dry out your skin. Should I Moisturize? Some men might find that shaving their face results in dry, flaky skin. A moisturizer can help solve these issues. Choose a gentle moisturizer that is designed specifically for the thick male skin, and you will find that your skin always feels fresh, clean and new.
