Men go to dermatologists and cosmetologists – this is true. Statistics of visits to experts suggests that the main reason for such visits is inflammation caused by improper skin care, irritation due to shaving, acne, allergic reactions. How does male skin differ from female skin?
Increased amount of sebaceous and sweat glands. Therefore, men are more prone to the appearance of rash, black spots and acne, especially if you do not properly take care of cleansing the skin.
“There is a myth that“ women’s ”ingredients in cosmetics are contraindicated for men, but there is no evidence of this,” says dermatologist cosmetologist Valery Bondarenko. – Of course, if there is an undesirable reaction to a substance, you should avoid it. Honey, chocolate and citrus extracts most often cause allergies, but they are very rare in “male” cosmetics. ”
Is one tool suitable for two? Depends on the skin of men.
Those men whose face skin is dry and thin (as experts say, there are a lot of such people among the strong half of humanity!) Can use milk and even micellar water from the “female” shelf for cleansing.
If a man’s skin is a problem, ordinary cleansers for women’s skin will not work for him.
Therefore, take care of the presence in the bathroom “male” gel for washing. For example, TOM FORD Foaming Purifying Face Cleanser Gel, MKMen® Daily Facial Wash Cleanser, BIOTHERM HOMME Total Recharge Facial Wash Gel, Cleansing Soap Clinique for Men Face Wash.
Designed for oily and combination skin, these products contain high concentrations of AHA-acids, which help to effectively and deeply cleanse the pores of impurities and tallow-sweat secretions.

Nature made men a generous gift: their skin contains much more collagen than women. This means literally the following: wrinkles on the face appear later (especially when its owner is an adherent of a healthy lifestyle). But even if there are no visible skin problems, it’s better not to neglect the daily minimum — tonic or at least cream.
Ecology, stress, lack of sleep are doing their job, and at the moment the signs of fatigue that have appeared will be problematic to be erased from the face.
Alas, men limit cosmetic arsenal themselves. If women are very kind to their appearance, using a mix of 5-10 different care products daily, representatives of the stronger sex do not like to devote much time to this.
They prefer a multifunctional remedy that can be used both in the morning and in the evening, applied both to the face and under the eyes, and applied simultaneously to moisturize and combat greasy luster.
Is one tool suitable for two? Peels and scrubs – yes, creams and serums – no.
Keep your jars with day and night creams, serums, and oils away from men. Men’s skin is about 3 times fatter than women’s.
She doesn’t need additional nutrients!
The task of “male” anti-aging products is to supply the skin with oxygen, moisturize, improve complexion and reduce wrinkles, while controlling the work of the sebaceous glands and not clogging the pores. For example, LIERAC HOMME regenerating gel cream for tired skin, global cream Idealizer moisturizing cream from VICHY HOMME, Philip for Men skin cell renewal serum from ZEPTER.
And put on a prominent place peels and scrubs – let them be common. Explain to the faithful that “thick-skinned” is not an offensive nickname, but a proven fact. The thickness of the skin in men is 15–20% greater than in women.
Therefore, a couple of times a week it is useful for them to renew the skin with exfoliants, removing dead skin particles of the epidermis. The procedure performed immediately before shaving will be especially effective: the scrub softens the stiff bristles, facilitating the subsequent hair removal process.
What men usually do not save on is cosmetics for shaving. And in vain!
Aftershave lotion may well be replaced by any “female” tonic (fluid, balm, etc.), if, firstly, it does not contain alcohol (skin is irritated and dehydrated after shaving), and secondly, it is designed to relieve irritation ( usually these are with chamomile, aloe or on the basis of thermal water) or have an antibacterial effect (with green tea extract).
When the skin is very sensitive and reacts extremely sensitively to a razor, you can advise your beloved a radical way of dealing with unwanted facial hair – Qool epilation, offering to cope with the hair with a laser. From procedure to procedure (on average, they will need about ten), it will be necessary to shave less and less, and the process will be transferred more easily: the laser beam also has an antibacterial effect, preventing irritation.
Is one tool suitable for two? Shaving oil – yes, tonic or aftershave fluid – yes.
Suggest that a man before applying foam or shaving gel to put on the skin a little oil and rub in a light massage movements. Believe me, the result will pleasantly surprise him!
The oil softens the hard bristles well, makes the razor “smooth”, preventing cuts, moisturizes the skin and prevents ingrown hairs. The price of specialized products (for example, oil for shaving from The Art of Shaving, oil for shaving double action from Clarins Men, oil for shaving Collezione Barbiere from Acqua di Parma) ranges from 1,500-3,000 rubles.
Meanwhile, the task perfectly cope cosmetic oil for the face, which you use yourself.
