Prevention, prevention and more prevention: for men, this mantra is even more relevant than for the fair sex.
The fact is that the physiology of male skin has its own peculiarity: signs of age become noticeable later than in women, but changes come much more sharply. So a man often thinks that he is young and there is simply no need to take care of the skin, and one day he wakes up with a completely different face.

“The absence of visible symptoms does not mean that tissues do not weaken and processes in the skin do not slow down. Every day a man ironing his shirt, combing his hair, brushing his teeth - exactly the same habit should be developed with skin care,”says Aleksey Mironenko, national expert at Biotherm.
And most often you need to start from school. Due to hormonal changes, skin problems can occur on average from the age of 13. And this is just the ideal age to instill in your teenager the habit of taking care of themselves regularly.
The next stage of "initiation" is the moment when the young man first picks up the shaving brush. “After shaving is a must: there must be a lotion that disinfects the skin, and a cream that moisturizes and soothes. When the skin is dehydrated, it becomes sensitive. If after shaving you get a feeling of tightness (even if a real man doesn't complain about such trifles), feel free to ask your other half for a moisturizer or run to a perfume store - the situation needs to be saved,”advises Alexey.
As soon as a man has a nervous job in the office, you can safely connect anti-aging care, even if there is not even a hint of wrinkles: stressful situations form microscopic inflammations in the skin, which intensify the aging process. “Many are afraid that if they start using anti-wrinkle cream, they will immediately look 20 years younger and it will be noticeable: do not flatter yourself, this will not happen - you will just look“good”. But you shouldn't forget about moisturizing either: aging skin needs liquid even more, and the office atmosphere with air conditioning and central heating plays against you,”says Mironenko.

Do not forget about special care for the area around the eyes: signs of age are manifested here in the first place, but depending on the gender, it is slightly different. Due to the very thin subcutaneous fat, this area easily demonstrates swelling in men, and women complain more about wrinkles (but this does not cancel the presence of edema - as well as "crow's feet" in the stronger sex). This is primarily due to the way of life: men, as a rule, sleep less and drink more often, sometimes without knowing the measure. As a result, microcirculation is disturbed and bags under the eyes appear. So if you're a party-goer that ends well past midnight, opt for a draining eye moisturizer.

Buying special men's products or using what your wife has put on the dressing table is your business. As a rule, special care marked "Men" is distinguished by lightweight textures (the stronger sex's skin is naturally greasier), bottles of dark shades and invigorating aromas.
“If you have oily skin, you need a moisturizing treatment with mattifying properties. If you live in unfavorable environmental conditions or do not get out of the office - anti-aging products with antioxidants, - Alexey sums up. - And when at first glance there are no problems with the face, it is worth concentrating on moisturizing - it is necessary for everyone and at any age. We Biotherm have a great Aquapower line - versatile option for those who do not know what to choose ">.
