Do you ever find your husband, boyfriend, brother or son “borrowing” your cleansers and moisturisers? Ladies, use that as an opportunity to educate them on skin care – while keeping your beauty stash intact.
To celebrate Father’s Day on Sunday; here are three men’s skin health tips to share with the guys in your life:
1. Wear SPF everyday.
Melanoma, the most deadly form of skin cancer, is one of only three cancers with an increasing mortality rate for men. However, in a study done by the Skin Cancer Foundation, only 32 percent of men knew how to properly use sunscreen. Urge guys to check their skin weekly for any signs of skin cancer. Even if that little brown spot seems like nothing, suggest they see a dermatologist.
2. PH matters.
Men with more sensitive skin can benefit from products that have a slightly higher pH and/or contain soothing ingredients like aloe. When shopping for skin care products, I urge everyone to look at the pH value. Our skin ranges from 4.5-5.5 pH; a product should be below the pH level of the skin for maximum penetration.
3. Workout Your Skin.
Most guys are accustomed to a fitness programme, so urge them to work out their skin like they work out their body. I like to call this philosophy the Beauty Workout. Following a simple morning and night regimen using only 3-4 effective products can protect skin from damage and premature aging. Urge them to find a good shave routine and a multi-tasking moisturiser with anti-aging properties and SPF in one to cut down on steps.
Once the men in your life have their home skin care routine down to a fine art, why not treat them to a facial at the spa? If it’s their first visit, they can read our Men’s Spa Guide before they go to make that spa experience less daunting.
