4 Men’s Skincare Myths: Debunked

The importance of skincare is becoming more popular than ever. Reminders to wear sunscreen, ways to stay moisturized and so much more are swarming social media. Even though the information is out there, myths surrounding men’s skincare continue to hinder them from trying certain products or knowing how to implement a routine successfully. To help the men in our lives, we’re debunking some common men’s skincare myths you might have thought true.

Myth #1: Skincare isn’t for men

Skin is skin, and you should take care of it no matter what! A common assumption is that skincare is only for women, but that’s not the case. Although you don’t need to spend hours in the mirror, a good routine is important for anyone’s skin. It is the largest organ of the body! Men have nature on their side—aging much slower than women—but by implementing a few simple steps like a daily cleanser and moisturizer, men will not only physically see a difference but also feel a difference.

Myth #2: Bar soap is the only soap

It might be true that using one bar of soap for everything is easy, but it’s not good for your skin. As you use a bar of soap, bacteria collect from other parts of your body and from sitting open in the shower. That bacteria is then transferred directly to your face! Additionally, bar soap dries skin out immensely, leading to breakouts, and is abrasive, which can cause irritation and inflammation. Instead of using the all-in-one approach, we suggest men find a facial cleanser and a separate body cleanser that works best for their skin.

Myth #3: Everyone needs the same products

Your girlfriend’s moisturizer may be an easy solution to throw on in the morning, but it’s important to understand the differences between men’s and women’s skin. Not only is men’s skin thicker than women’s, but it is also oilier. That means men’s skincare products require active ingredients that are higher in concentration. We suggest using a lightweight whipped moisturizer or dry body oil to help keep the skin soft and supple. Remember, finding the proper routine for you takes trial and error.

Myth #4: Facials are for females

A relaxing spa day is stereotypically a woman’s version of fun. The good news is anyone can join in on this wonderful experience. A great way to start is with a facial! Facials not only help you feel relaxed but can also have numerous benefits for the skin. For example, a facial can help relieve skin irritation after shaving. Also, since we talked about male skin tending to be oilier, a facial is a great way to counteract that oil production. If you’re looking for a perfect facial to hydrate your skin, try our Glow 3D AquaFacial. Using patented technology, this facial cleanses, extracts and hydrates, leaving your skin healthy and handsome.
