MEN: Why It’s Important to Cleanse & Moisturize
Posted By: Lindsay Schroeder Posted In: Skincare Date Posted: December 3rd, 2012 Comments: 0

It’s unfortunate that our society makes it seem so important for women to take care of their skin but don’t focus too much on men’s skin other than shaving and using an after shave cream. Women spend billions of dollars on cleansers, toners, and moisturizers while men…do not. How could this be?! This is not okay! It’s just as important for men to take care of their skin as it is for women. Possibly even more so because they take a razor to their face!

We at Acne Skin Site hear so often from men, “I wash my face in the shower with my body soap,” or “I splash some water on my face every morning and night.” Ahhhh! This is horrible! Just like women, men are in contact with lots of germs and debris during the day, touch their faces with their hands and cell phones, and get oily as well. There are tons of lines out there that are now geared towards men so men don’t have to feel ashamed walking into a store and purchasing a pretty pink bottle of cleanser and a matching moisturizer.

Men, another reason you need to cleanse your face with a gentle cleanser is because after shaving, you normally will have a cut or two on your face. Think about it, that cut is going to come in contact with lots of bacteria during the day and could potentially get infected or turn into an ingrown hair. The cut or bump will heal a lot more quickly and have a much less chance of becoming infected if you cleanse your face properly morning and night.

Even if you don’t want to admit it, you stress if you get a pimple or break out as well so why not do the right thing and give your skin some loving?

Using an oil-free moisturizer will do wonders to your skin after cleansing. It will keep your skin hydrated, will feel amazing on your skin after all the wear and tear of the day and of shaving, and even will help immensely with anti-aging benefits. We know you don’t want to look old even if you don’t want to admit it! Another bonus, if you use a moisturizer with a minimum of SPF 30, you protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays and minimize your chance of getting skin cancer. So do yourself a favor, check out the men’s lines of skincare and start taking care of your skin today! You’ll thank us later.
