Whether you’re a man or a woman, taking care of yourself is something you should do. That includes taking care of your skin, particularly that of your face. Unfortunately, our lives are made so much harder thanks to excessive pollution we’re exposed to on a daily basis, which can have detrimental effects on our skin. Sun damage is also another major factor. Skin can end up dehydrated, patchy, uneven and spotty, and when left over long periods of time become hard to fix. Here are a few tips to help you maintain glowing, healthy skin on your face. Remember, it is more sensitive than skin on other parts of your body, so it is important to be gentle.

Exfoliate

Again, this is not something that is limited to women. Exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin cells, so your skin can breathe and have room to create new skin cells. You can use a scrub for this purpose. There are so many different options in the market to suit all skin types, and there also variations for men. If your skin is super sensitive, go for something medicated, or you can even make a scrub at home with simple kitchen ingredients.

Professional Treatments

There are also many salons now that offer a variety of skin treatments, though you should pay special care here. You want to be sure that the salon is reputed, professional and experienced to do the job. Botched treatments can result in lifetime scarring, so do not take this lightly. Whether you are opting for a facelift or something else, be sure to double-check that they are reputed and have good reviews from previous clients. After all, the people whom you are entrusting your face with should be able to command peace of mind from their customers.

Moisturize

Men too are prone to dry skin, so moisturizing is once again something that is applicable to both genders. Like scrubs, there are different types of moisturizers out there to choose from. It is just a matter of knowing which one is right for you. You can either opt for creams or lotions, or even facial oils, one of the newer entrants into the market. Once you scrub and wash your face, you can then apply a little moisturizer by massaging it into your skin. Gently of course.

Load Up On Fruits

Beauty comes from within, and that means no matter what you use, you still need to load up on natural vitamins and minerals. Lots of fruits and vegetables are great for skin, and can be very healing. Change your diet and look at including more nutritious options. Frequent fast food for instance is a big no-no. You can even research online a few good juice and smoothie recipes if you are not a fan of eating that many fruits and vegetables on a daily basis. It is fast, convenient, and very effective. Whatever you are doing on the outside, make sure you also pay attention to overall body health.
