Men's Skincare

Men share many of the same basic issues of skin care as women.

However, when it comes to serious conditions like squamous cell cancer, men are far more likely to develop this than females. So, taking care of and protecting the skin has become a higher priority for men than decades ago. Men now go to spas, see dermatologists, and are more aware of skincare to take care of their skin.

Diminish Excess Oil

Male skin is generally oilier than female skin. Though shaving takes off the top layer of cells plus some oil, you can further diminish oil with the powerful astringent, antiseptic properties of CLARIFIQUE Purifying Clay Mask. This mask helps to absorb oil and lessen bacteria, and best of all, can be applied on clean skin prior to sleep to work overnight—which helps to lessen the severity of oil and/or breakouts. Cover the pillowcase with a towel when sleeping in the mask and use it no more than every other night. You can even spot treat just the problem areas.

Protect Skin from Sun

Male skin is thicker and therefore men can be out in the sun longer (on average) than women and may show only a minimal inflammatory effect from the sun. However, there is a growing concern from recent studies that this lack of inflammatory response may mean that males are getting exposed to the deeper, more damaging rays and not showing it. It is a fact that males tend to develop more squamous cell cancer. This means that sun protection is very important to men and women. In addition to sun protection, it is important to add antioxidants to the skin. VITAPURE Ultra Antioxidant Nutrient Serum, made of Vitamins A, Ester C, E and Selenium, applied under the sun protection can provide additional protection against free radicals. Also, studies show that men tend to wait longer if they notice something on their skin before they seek medical advice. The key is to examine your skin daily, and if you notice changes in the skin, to seek medical attention early. For suggestions on sun protection, click here.

Minimize Shaving Bumps

After shaving, many men get red bumps on the face and neck, the result of ingrown hairs or shaving irritation. Calm those red bumps with VITAPURE Ultra Antioxidant Nutrient Serum. It's refreshing and nourishing too! If the bumps are from ingrown hairs, a period of no shaving may help. If condition worsens, seek medical advice. Laser treatments may also help. For men with extra sensitive or dry skin, shaving with PRIMESSE Essential Facial Cleanser can soothe and calm irritated skin.
