Men and women have different beauty needs. Beauty tips for men will help them get noticed and stay looking younger longer. Men, unlike women, cannot usually hide behind makeup, so there is even more reason to take good care of their skin and overall health to look their best.
Men’s Skin Care Needs
Men’s skin has larger pores, on average, than women’s skin, so it is more prone to oiliness and gets dirtier faster. Daily cleaning is a necessity. Products to look for should be all-natural and fragrance- free, if possible, because the skin does not need extra irritation. Men need to rely on their skin alone, without enhancements such as makeup or eyebrow tweaking. On top of this, shaving daily gives their skin an extra irritation that needs care. Because men’s skin tends toward oiliness, care needs to be taken to choose the right moisturizer.
Facial Mask Recipe for Men
There are several lines of skin-care products especially for men. Choose one with as few synthetic ingredients as possible, or make your own. You can buy benzoate clay in bulk at many health-food stores. This clay is an excellent base for most male skin. Add to the clay some raw honey, green matcha tea (a specialty Japanese tea powder and great antioxidant), and water to even out the consistency. Spread onto your clean face, lie down and relax for about 15 minutes. Wash off. This mask should remove impurities, tighten pores, moisturize and add a healthy glow. It's great before a date!
Men’s skin needs to be kept extra clean. Using a simple scrub helps to keep skin clean, remove dead skin cells and tighten pores. Again, there are many men’s brands on the market, or you can make your own. Try this sugar rub: Simply mix brown sugar with sesame oil, rub it on your face and wash off. This scrub will not overly dry your skin, but will remove dead skin cells and rejuvenate the appearance.
The best moisturizer for men is the light variety. Try pure aloe vera gel, straight from the plant if you can. If not, look for it in a health-food store where you can be more certain of getting a pure product. Also, try pure vitamin E on your freshly-cleansed skin. This should help against blemishes and also be light enough for most men’s skin.
Shaving is very harsh on skin. Aloe vera works as an after-shave that will tighten pores and not dry or damage skin like alcohol will. Treat your face as carefully as you can before and after shaving, by gently cleansing before, and treating with either aloe vera or a similar, non-alcohol product after.
Exercise to Enhance Beauty
Exercise induces sweat, which removes toxins from the body. It also relieves stress, which, among other benefits, enhances beauty. Having a strong, muscular body not only makes you more beautiful, it most likely increases your confidence, which is one of the best beauty enhancers.
