Why Is Skincare Important For Men?
Someone asks you, “Hey what’s your skincare routine?”, and you look at them blankly, not knowing how to respond. Sound familiar? This is something we experience time and time again with the men that walk into our barbershop. You’re young now, your skin looks fine, so why should you bother investing your time and money into developing and maintaining an effective skincare routine?
Skincare has long been considered a women’s domain, and men generally want nothing to do with it. Thankfully nowadays that mindset is shifting, and men are starting to take charge of their skin health and consider the long-term effects of their decisions. The idea that only women should care for their skin isn’t based on sound reasoning and is grounded purely on stereotypes. If you’re a man and think that all you need for your face is a good shaving cream and a cleanser, then read on because this article is for you.
Signs of ageing
Wrinkles and fine lines are one of the first signs of ageing skin. Once they start forming, it’s hard to get rid of them, especially without more invasive and costly procedures like botox. A well thought out skincare routine can prevent their early onset and keep you looking young even into your thirties.
When people see you, the first thing they look at is your facial features. You will feel a whole lot better about yourself knowing that your skin is glowing and looking the best it can. After all, first impressions are everything. In our experience, success favours those who are well groomed and take care of themselves. A daily skincare routine is one of the easiest ways to keep yourself looking your best. Once you get into the habit, it will become second nature and you won’t even know you’re doing it.
Facial skin can be very delicate and prone to irritation. Irritation can be caused by several factors such as shaving, excessive sun exposure and a many other reasons. The burning and itching can leave you feeling quite uncomfortable. An effective skincare routine that includes products with hydrating and anti-inflammatory products can reverse these effects and leave you feeling soothed and fresh.
Skincare products can be had from many places around Australia. Beauty salons, chemists, online stores just to name a few. At KJ Barbers, we have our own line of skincare products to help you take care of yourself. If you live locally, you can even come in for a consultation and we can guide you in the right direction.
