What Are Some Common Men's Skin Care Mistakes?, Manhattan, New York

Skin care isn’t just for women. Men who want healthy, hydrated, and younger-looking skin should also have a daily cleansing and moisturizing regimen. Here are a handful of common men’s skin care mistakes and how to avoid them.

4 Skin Care Mistakes Men Often Make

1. Not Using the Right Products

Prior to shopping for cleansers, moisturizers, and creams, find out what skin type you have: normal, oily, dry, sensitive, or a combination. When you purchase products made specifically for your skin type, you’ll start noticing positive results within days or weeks.

2. Failure to Prep Before Shaving

3. Using Only the Basics

There’s nothing wrong with the basics, but you might want to step up your skin care game from using only a cleanser and moisturizer. Try applying an anti-aging cream to restore your skin and boost collagen production along with an eye cream to prevent dark circles and puffiness. 

4. Not Applying Sunscreen 

Excessive exposure to sunlight is one of the primary contributors to aging skin, and only about 15% of men wear sunscreen. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily to protect your skin from early aging and to prevent melanoma.
