Guys: great skin doesn’t have to be complicated. Sure, the shelves are lined with an overwhelming amount of gray-toned bottles and there are too many treatment options to count, but some make a bigger difference than others.
If you want clearer, younger-looking skin, these are the best skin care products and treatments for men. It’s what I use, and it’s what works.
Lots of it. If you’re going to be out all day, go ahead and lather on the sunscreen. It’s no shock that dermatologist-recommended skin care starts with sunscreen. It’s the most essential product you can and should use daily.
I use EltaMD. It resists water and sweat, and doesn’t smell like sunscreen. Plus, you can purchase it in a big bottle so you don’t have to restock too often.
Nothing gives away a man’s age like forehead wrinkles. It starts early and is emphasized by a receding hairline. Yet, with a few simple Botox injections in the forehead area, you can greatly improve the appearance of wrinkles.
This product packs a lot of punch as it combats pimples, dark spots, and wrinkles. Basically, it causes a quickened cell turnover in your skin so problems begin to disappear. If you use it occasionally, it helps prevent pimples. With regular use, dark spots and wrinkles also fade. Just apply it at night (followed by a moisturizer) and you’ll notice a difference in a few weeks.
4. TNS Essential Serum
There’s a sheen that young skin has and old skin doesn’t. TNS Essential Serum revitalizes your skin by regenerating growth cells that our bodies haven’t made since childhood. If you use it every morning, it will help improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, skin tone and texture.
5. Laser Resurfacing
Laser resurfacing eliminates large pores and a ruddy complexion. Large pores come from large oil glands underneath the skin. Lasers go through the top layer of skin and deliver energy that shrinks those big glands. Then, the pore size shrinks as your skin tightens. Since the laser doesn’t break the skin, recovery time is quick – a few days at most!
If you only change one thing about your skin care regimen, choose the laser resurfacing. Most guys consider either their pores or their complexion as problematic. Lasers fix both. With this treatment, you’ll see a big change in a short time.
