SKINCARE FOR MEN: the difference that actually matters!
how to choose between pink and blue
You may have noticed that most of the time store shelves are divided by “she” or “he” products that don’t seem to need a division. It is true that all genders can use the same products, what changes the most is the way you use them, as the skin (due to hormones) works differently for everyone.
the reasons why
When it comes to people with a higher level of testosterone the skin can be oilier, leading to acne and other signs that come little by little and not with accelerated aging like it often does on people with more estrogen.
Another factor that usually affects the skin of males is facial hair. Shaving is an aggressive action that rids the skin of its lipid protection, making it hypersensitive and with a tendency to be irritated.
Knowing this, we could generalize that the main necessities of a man’s skin are to maintain clean pores, to balance and control the oil and to gain back the protection lost while shaving. Following these parameters, you can look for products that will treat your skin without the distraction of “girly” or “manly” products that may not be working for you.
the perfect routine for men
Start your day with a hydrating, equilibrating and energizing cleanser. We offer you Sepai’s soap-less cleanser Wash or an aromatherapeutic and relaxing option by APoEM, the Detox Face Wash. Afterward, if necessary, shave with a cleansing balm that soothes your skin and cleans it without affecting your lipid barrier, like Sepai’s Cleanse.
Once or twice a week (or 3 to 4 times a week if you have really oily skin), indulge and apply a face mask or stronger product that will make you feel pampered and do wonders with your skin. Peel Mud by Sepai is a top-rated mask that will recharge your skin with energy and stop extra oil production. Another great option is the Detox Face Scrub by APoEM.
Keep in mind that skincare isn’t only cosmetic, it can change your lifestyle and make your body healthier. However, your skin is, take care of it and show yourself some love.
