Male skin types and how to identify your skin type

Every man has a type of skin, either by texture or color. It is because of that not everyone gets the same results with a certain treatment or beauty product (some skins do not accept it and manifest it with some type of reaction). To avoid these situations it is critical that you know what type of skin do you have to be able to nourish and hydrate it with the products that suit you (The same happens when using makeup products). Therefore, the first step, before buying cosmetic products for men, you must know the most common skin types (regarding man):

  • Normal skin: "Normal" is a widely used term to refer to a skin in good balance (The scientific term for well-balanced skin is "eudemic".) It means having a skin without blemishes or redness and who needs hydration. It is a type of skin that is less and less common, since there is usually a tendency for the skin to be dry, oily or mixed. To maintain this type of skin and thus transmit a healthy image, it is convenient moisturize the skin with creams and clean every night with soap or lotions. We recommend the use of cleansing milks that rid the skin of impurities and nourishing creams that hydrate deeply.

  • Dry Skin: Does your skin have a rough and peeling appearance? Dry skin lacks hydration and lipids (fat) and is more prone to wrinkles. As a consequence, it is less elastic, more taut and, in many cases, tends to itch. It is susceptible to external environmental factors and tends to react with irritation. To take care of dry skin is convenient hydrate it with nourishing creams of aloe vera or shea butter, as well as with oils. If you also use masks to clean your skin, you will also be contributing certain substances that will help nourish your skin better. Of course, when cleaning your skin you must avoid using soaps and use milks or cleaning oils. If you use creams for dry skin, you can restore its hydration and strengthen the natural protection barriers of the skin.

  • Sensitive skin: This skin type is very sensitive to external factors such as dry air, heating, pollution, UV light, or stress. The way to know if this is your skin type is by looking at whether, when you are facing these factors, your skin easily reddensYou lose elasticity quickly, feel tight or itchy because you have lost your balance. If so, you need to give special cares they are soothing and strengthen their protective barrier so that it can be more resistant to external factors. For your cleaning routine, choose soft and fragrance-free products and avoid masks or products that are exfoliating (they can do more damage to your skin). In this case it is very important that choose special products for sensitive skin, as a moisturizer that protects from external factors (it is also essential for you to use sun protection every day whether or not there is sun).

  • Oily skin: If you have this type of skin you will tend to have pimples, pores and other imperfections. Also, you will notice shine on your face due to grease. Therefore, you must avoid using very fatty products that incorporate oils (as well as creamy moisturizers) and your ally for daily cleaning of your skin will be the soap. Here masks and scrubs will also help you maintain balanced skin and we recommend using oil-free products so that they do not enhance the natural fat of your skin, such as gels, astringent toners, fluid creams and serums.

  • Mixed skin: As its name indicates, it is a type of skin with traits of dry skin and oily skin. To find out if this is your skin type, you can see if the nose, chin and forehead area (known as the T zone) accumulate more fat, contrasting with other dry areas. Caring for this type of skin is more complex, since it is necessary to avoid the use of oils to avoid potentiating the greasy effect, and soap to avoid obtaining more dryness. Ideally in these situations is use specialized products for combination skin.

Anyway, surely it has happened to you that, when trying define your skin typeYou discover that some days you would say that it is dry, others mixed (because of those glitters that you suddenly see in the forehead area) and others, even fat or sensitive. Identifying your skin type can sometimes become a complicated task since, although it is largely predetermined by your genes, there are external agents such as extreme temperatures, contamination or makeup change (even facial treatment), which can to have specific effects on it. Although we recommend that go to the nearest dermatologist or pharmacyYou can follow these steps to get a fairly clear idea of ​​discovering your skin type:

  • Wash your face thoroughly: One day you are home and you know that you are not going out in a few hours, wash your face gently with soap and water to remove impurities (even if you don't see them, they are there).

  • Pat yourself dry with the towel: The next step is Gently pat the skin dry with a clean towel, without rubbing or scrubbing or you will cause occasional redness that affects the result.

  • Wait half an hour: Once you have properly dried your face, wait a minimum of 30 minutes (it is the time that your skin needs to recover its natural state) without applying any product.

  • Get close to a mirror in a well-lit area: Now it's time to review your skin in detail, so choose a well lit place and a wall or hand mirror where you can analyze your skin (Ideally, it would be next to a window first thing in the morning when the sun is not too low to avoid flares).

  • We recommend that go to the nearest dermatologist or pharmacy so they can test your skin and tell you exactly the type of skin you have.
