Mistakes Males Make When It Comes To Their Skin


As a guy, I’ll be the first one to say that we make mistakes. I know, it’s very hard to believe but we do! Once you’ve had a chance to let that sink in, it’s time to understand the mistakes that males make when it comes to their skin. Now, I need you to know that there are likely far more mistakes for me to cover here that men make, but covering all of them could take┬áhours, days, and even weeks to be honest. Hopefully simply identifying these things will help put things into perspective for your or at least get you thinking about things prior to applying skin care products.

Skin Care Mistakes Lots Of Males Make These Days

I’ve done my best to lay the foundation in terms of skin care mistakes for males. This should tell you exactly what most men need to be thinking about when it comes to caring for their skin. I’ll try to keep this as plain and simple as possible. Here’s a rundown of the mistakes…

One of the biggest mistakes that men make these days are that they try to use one bar of soap for nearly everything. The truth is, skin on your face is much different from the skin on your body. Males tend to attempt an all in one approach to try and sacrifice spending money on various skin care products.

Another mistake that men tend to make is that they don’t consider chemicals enough. Instead, shoot for the natural or organic types of products to see if you show any signs of improvement in your skin. A good idea would be to read up on products that contain activated charcoal and other natural ingredients. You’ll be surprised to find out what they can do for your skin.

This is a huge mistake that too many males make, they do not wear sunscreen. I can’t stress how important it is for men to protect their skin daily with sunscreen. There are celebs like Hugh Jackman that have developed cancer due to a lack of care. Take action and be proactive about things if you want to keep your skin healthy and great.

Last but not least, not using a moisturizer is a huge mistake. Most men have never even owned a moisturizer and that’s why their skin looks like it’s aged so much. If you’ve ever seen the movie War Dogs then you the scene that I’m thinking about right now. You know, the one where they’re discussing elderly people’s skin rubbing against Egyptian cotton sheets. You can’t help but think how much smoother their skin would be if they just used a little more moisturizer earlier in life.
