It is a myth that only women spend their time taking care of themselves. Men don’t exactly get out of the bed and walk out the door. They also have to face skin and hair problems like acne, dandruff and hair fall. Today, we will help you with recommendations for Men’s skin and hair care as per our findings in Ayurveda.
Difference in Skin Structure
The skin of men differs vastly from that of women. The composition of hormones in their body is responsible for thickness of their skin, its texture, its smoothness, the oil secretion in the skin and the way it ages. Hormones such as testosterone and androgens result in a more coarser and thicker skin and hair texture in men. It can also influence sebum production and collagen structure, making it very different from female skin.routine, men can take care of their skin the right way. Here are some things to keep in mind while taking care of the male skin.
- Cleanse – Tone – Moisturize
The CTM routine is just as important for men. They are often exposed to pollution, car exhaust, smoke and other pollutants on a daily basis. This can damage their skin and the best way to undo this damage is by using a good facial cleanser that works for everyone. Sutatva’s Rose Petal gel is a wonderful product with 3-in-1 action. It cleanses, moisturizes, and tones at the same time.
- Apply Sunscreen
This is yet another thing that men tend to ignore. It is important to apply a good sunscreen before stepping out. Sun’s harmful rays can spoil the color and textureof the male skin. Minimize tanning by applying a sunscreen on face as well as hands, at least 15 minutes before heading out so that it gets absorbed better. Try Sutatva’s UV Cream which protects your skin from sun’s harmful rays naturally.
Exfoliation helps to remove dead skin cells from accumulating and causing bacterial infections on your skin. If you do not scrub, your skin’s pores will have a build-up of dirt, causing your skin to break out more often. Use a gentle, granulated face scrub at least once a week to smoothen skin and remove dullness. Exfoliation can also help soften hair follicles, which results in a smoother shave and minimal irritation. Try Sutatva’s Activated Charcoal Scrub for best results.
- Take Care of your lips
Your lips can get tanned or chapped, making them appear dull and dry. A good lip balm can cure these problems and make them soft and supple. Lips also age with time, therefore a lip balm with a high SPF should be applied during the day, and a hydrating lip balm should be applied at night. You can also put ghee at night to take care of your lips.
- Keep your beard clean
If you are someone who likes sporting a beard, make sure you do everything to keep it clean. Follow basic hygiene measures such as washing your beard with a good face wash. Avoid over-washing to prevent your natural oils from depleting. Apart from this, you can also apply some of our natural, cold pressed oils from Sutatva to keep your beard healthy. Cold-Pressed Almond Oil is a great option for nourishing your skin and beard.
