As you may have noticed, a man’s skin is very different from a woman’s. Their skin is thicker and most men shave daily.  Since men are less likely to prioritize good skin care than women, many appreciate simple but effective skin care for men tips. 

Here are a few skin care tips for men:

Say NO to Bar Soap

Bar soap tends to strip the water and natural oils out of the skin, causing the surface of the skin to dehydrate.  Instead of soap try using a moisturizing cleansing gel that will give a deep pore cleaning, but won’t leave the skin feeling tight and dry.

Prevent Ingrown Hairs

The key to preventing ingrown hairs is by using the right shaving products and great razor. Choose a moisturizing shaving gel instead of cream that will instantly lubricate the skin, and soften the hair to be shaved, lessening irritation.


If you are prone to ingrown hairs – you may want to consider Laser Hair Removal Treatments. Treatments can be done on the beard, neck, sideburns and even eyebrows.

Wear moisturizer with sunscreen.

Moisturizer and sunscreen are the two most important skin care habits you can develop. Save a step by buying a moisturizer with sunscreen in it! The top cause of skin aging is exposure to the sun.  For this reason, year-round sun protection is essential.

Avoid using alcohol-based aftershave.

While many men like the clean and tight feeling associated with using alcohol-based aftershaves, these aftershaves can lead to dead skin cell buildup, keeping hair trapped in the skin, leading to more ingrown hairs and sensitivity.  Try a oil-free moisturizer to soothe the skin after a shave.
