Men Want To Look Good For Their Age Too!

Updated: May 30, 2023

Skincare and "tweakments" are no longer the preserve of the fairer sex. Men are waking up to the significance of taking care of their complexion. So much so, the grooming market in the UK is now valued at around £1.15 billion; while men seeking aesthetic treatments is also on the rise.

The Importance Of Grooming

None of us are spared the ageing process. While women have long filled their bathroom cabinets with all manner of lotions and potions, men, it seems, are finally getting in on the act. The days of a quick scrub with a bar of soap and a slather of E45 are long gone; if you want healthy skin as you age then it's crucial to embrace skincare routines that cater to your specific needs.

Slowing Down the Aging Process: As men age, their skin undergoes various changes. Collagen production decreases, resulting in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin. By adopting a consistent skincare routine, you can tackle the visible signs of ageing and maintain a youthful appearance for longer.

Protection from Environmental Factors: Our skin is exposed to harmful environmental factors such as pollution, UV rays and harsh weather conditions. These elements accelerate skin ageing and lead to issues like sunspots, uneven tone and dryness. By using effective products you create a barrier against these external aggressors, protecting from damage and maintaining skin health.

Boosting Confidence: Taking care of your complexion not only enhances physical well-being but also has a positive impact on self-esteem and confidence. Men who invest time in looking after their complexion feel better about their appearance and project a more youthful, vibrant image. This significantly boosts self-confidence in both personal and professional spheres.

Addressing Specific Concerns: Men's skin actually has unique characteristics, such as thicker skin, more active sebaceous glands, and increased facial hair. These factors make men more prone to issues like acne, ingrown hairs and razor burns. A targeted skincare routine can address these concerns effectively and promote healthier, clearer skin.


Essential Skincare Tips for Men:

Cleansing: Begin with a gentle cleanser designed for men's skin to remove dirt, excess oil and impurities. This step helps prevent breakouts and promotes a clean canvas for the following products.

Exfoliation: An exfoliating product removes the dead cells and built-up dirt on the skin's surface. By exfoliating once or twice a week you improve texture and tone. Look for exfoliants with natural ingredients to avoid irritation.

Moisturisation: A good moisturiser is vital for maintaining hydration, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and combating dryness. Choose a product with SPF to provide protection against harmful UV rays.

Eye Care: The delicate skin around the eyes is often the first to show signs of ageing. Your daily moisturiser will probably be to heavy for this delicate area, so choose a cream or gel specifically formulated to reduce puffiness, dark circles, and fine lines.

Shaving: Men who shave regularly should use a high-quality shaving cream or gel to lubricate the skin, minimise irritation and prevent ingrown hairs. Finish with an alcohol-free aftershave balm to soothe and moisturize.

Sun Protection: Never underestimate the importance of sunscreen when it comes to keeping skin looking youthful. Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30 and apply every day all year round.

The Rise in Male Aesthetics:

In recent years, I've noticed a surge in men seeking cosmetic treatments to enhance their appearance. The acceptance and normalisation of aesthetic procedures has seen both sexes recognise the benefits of enhancing their features, rejuvenating their appearance and boosting self-confidence. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the number of men receiving cosmetic procedures makes up 8% of procedures performed. Reasons for this include:

Anti-Ageing Benefits: Men, like women, are seeking ways to combat the visible signs of ageing. Non-surgical solutions reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and sagging skin for a more youthful and refreshed look.

Competitive Edge in Professional Life: In today's competitive job market, maintaining a youthful and energetic appearance can be an advantage. Men are now viewing cosmetic tweaks as a means to project a more vibrant and confident image.

Emotional Well-Being: We know that feeling good about your appearance boosts self-esteem, so self-care has become more of a priority for many of us.
