Mens' Skincare Tips: What's the Best Anti-Ageing Routine for Men?
Gone are the days where skin care tips are meant for women. With the meteoric rise of Hallyu trends that feature seemingly ageless and perpetually well-groomed men, we have started to see an increase in gentlemen who adopt a skin care routine that could rival the ladies. However, are you doing it correctly and are you using suitable products? It remains an undeniable fact that the skin structure of men and women are biologically different and thus require different ways of treatment. Ready to find out how to keep your skin supple and youthful? Read our list of anti-ageing tips for men right here!
Hydrate & Eat Right
It goes without saying that beauty comes from within and a man’s beauty routine doesn’t deviate far with regards to keeping hydrated and eating well. Ensuring your body gets the necessary amount of fluids it needs helps to keep your skin moisturised from the inside. A balanced meal full of vitamin C and E, as well as collagen, gives your skin an amazing glow. Fellas, go easy on the caffeine and alcohol as well since both act as diuretics and are highly likely to cause dehydration.
Proper Skin Care Regimen
Think skin care is just washing your face with a proper facial cleanser instead of body wash? Think again. Your skin stands to benefit from a full skin care regimen that includes cleansing, exfoliating, hydrating and treatment. Exfoliating at least once or twice a week also reduces the likelihood of ingrown hairs in addition to giving you a smoother canvas for your shaving session. You can choose from a range of face wash for men to get the best results.
Don’t forget to use a moisturising shaving cream for an easier and smoother shave as well. To prevent nicks and cuts altogether, use a foaming formula that also prevents razor burn and simultaneously softens skin for that baby smooth finish.
Want to cut down on the number of steps? Opt for a two-in-one cleanser and exfoliating gel like the ClarinsMen Exfoliating Cleanser and you’ll get the job done in a flash. Plus, it even helps prevent the appearance of unsightly shaving rash! Top it all off with a light layer of ClarinsMen Revitalising Gel for a revitalising boost that keeps your skin shine-free and smooth. Just gently pat the gel around your face and neck and you’re ready to go.
Prevent & Protect
Laugh lines and wrinkles are common with age but what if they start appearing in your early 30s? It’s no laughing matter at all! Signs of ageing don’t just stop at your face. The skin around your eyes, mouth and neck are sensitive and prone to wrinkling too.
Anti-ageing products for men have come a long way from the mere cleanser and aftershave sets. From preventing crow’s feet to lifting saggy skin around your neck, there’s a product out there that will protect your skin and help you lock in those dashing good looks. Clarins’ best-selling Double Serum works well for both men and women alike. With its 21 active plant ingredients, this anti-ageing serum not only works its magic on smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles, it helps to boost the hydration levels on your skin to ensure that it stays plump all day. If you have loose skin around your neck and chin, start your day with a light stretching exercise for your neck then tighten it up by applying ClarinsMen Line-Control Balm for a more chiselled jawline.
Crow’s feet are a little trickier to deal with as you can’t really exercise the area. However, you can prevent it from developing by avoiding contact with direct sunlight for too long and relaxing the skin around your eyes more. Do get plenty of sleep, as well as fatigue, is the number one cause of crow’s feet, dark circles and eye bags. What else can you do to prevent it? Think cucumber slices over your eyes and you’ve got the idea. Moisturising is important to plump up the skin and reduce fine lines from forming. For a quick pick-me-up boost for your sensitive eye area, try ClarinsMen Anti-Fatigue Eye Serum. Not only will it combat early signs of ageing around your eyes, but it’ll also help reduce puffiness and dark circles too so you’re always bright-eyed and bushy-tailed all day every day.
