Dermatologists recommended skincare routine for men

Editor’s Note:


Skincare is gender agonistic. More men are now pursuing healthier and glowing skin. Although there are some differences between men and women's skin, the basic elements of an effective skincare routine remain the same.

To help men develop healthy skin care routines, dermatologists recommend the following tips.

Understand your skin type

The first step in men’s skincare is to know your skin type as each skin type has unique needs and reacts differently to skincare products. If you have acne-prone skin, look for cleansers and moisturisers that say “oil free” or “non-comedogenic” as these won’t clog your pores. If you have sensitive skin, use mild and “fragrance free” products, as they can leave skin feeling irritated and dry.

Wash your face daily

Cleansing twice is essential. Wash your face using a mild facial cleanser and lukewarm water. You can also choose a face wash based on your needs and skin type, for example, a salicylic acid face wash will be more suitable for oily skin as it helps to remove the excess oil build-up.


Moisturise everyday

Moisturising after cleansing is imperative to trap water in your skin, which can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and make your skin look brighter and younger.


Don’t skin sunscreen, both indoors or outdoors

Sunscreen helps in protection from UVA & VB rays. UVB causes sunburn while UVA rays contribute to skin ageing and skin cancer. These rays are responsible for breaking down collagen, the main cause for wrinkles. It can even get through windows and clouds. For outside, a sunscreen with an SPF 50-60 is advisable.

Wait, you also need a sunscreen inside because the skin is prone to damage caused by blue light which is emitted by electronic devices. Since most of us spend hours in front of laptops and mobile screens, it is essential one applies sunscreen at home as well. If you spend most of your time inside, SPF-30 should suffice.

We recommend medicated sunscreens.


Check your skin regularly

If you have recurring acnes, white spots, pigmentation, the best would be to see a dermatologist as most products aren’t made for your specific concern and can aggravate the issues, leaving blemishes and pigmentation on your face skin.

Safe to conclude, both men and women need a skincare routine to protect for early signs of ageing. If you aren’t sure which products to choose, you can ask our dermatologist at just Rs 349.
