According to the Labour Force Survey of the United Kingdom, approximately 22,000 individuals developed work related skin problems in 2009-10. Work stress and fatigue can actually make your skin dull and lifeless. Therefore, it is important to use the best skin care products in order to help your skin retain that youthful glow and suppleness for a long time.

Tips on Choosing Skin Care Products

Here are some tips to help you select the best quality skin care products:

1.Make sure that the product is soap free. A soap based product is harsh on the skin and can cause rashes or inflammation.

2.For those who are buying anti-acne products, check its balance of salicylic acid. Too much of this acid can cause irritation and, at worst, burn the skin.

3.Switch to skin care products that use more of herbal ingredients, rather than chemical ones. Aloe Vera, honey, avocado, olive oil and fruit based products are gentle on the skin and deliver the best results.

4.Always test a product on a sensitive patch of your skin, such as the inner arm, before using it on your face. If the product causes irritation or inflammation do not use it.

5.Ensure that the skin care products you are using are animal friendly. There is a huge difference between human skin and animal skin. So, there is no point in testing the toxicity level of a product on an animal’s skin. Even the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) has prohibited the testing on animals.

6.Many skin care products contain strong chemicals, which may interfere with your health. Parabens, found in many cosmetic preparations, have reportedly caused reproductive system disorders in men and breast cancer in women. Good quality products are always made of natural ingredients, instead of such cheap and harmful chemicals.

7.Some of the best products are made of organic stem cells and roots. Hence, they are very effective and also protect you against the effects of aging.

8.Finally, always choose a product according to your skin type. If you have dry skin, avoid using any product with an alcohol base. Also consider checking the pH balance (measure of acidity) of your skin and of the products to make sure that you choose the right product for your skin.

What’s so different about the males of the species that skin care for men should be different from the products for women? Well, a man’s skin is not the same as a woman’s so you definitely shouldn’t be using the same products.

Male skin is much oilier and the pores are larger too. As a general rule, ladies’ brands are designed to be quickly absorbed by their thinner, finer layers. But use the same products on a man and you could be looking at clogged pores and an oily shine.

Males are generally more prone to redness and inflammation and this too can influence the sorts of lotions they should use on their bodies.

Fortunately, a good deal of research has been conducted over recent years into male facial creams and there are some exciting new developments, with extra special ingredients now included to cater just for male needs.

First of all, there’s CynergyTK™. This ingredient inhibits Prostaglandin E2, the major biochemical pathway leading to inflammation and redness.

Then there’s phytessence wakame, an extract from a Japanese sea kelp. This substance inhibits a harmful enzyme called hyaluronidase, which breaks down hyaluronic acid. This acid is important for tissue repair, and a reduction in it can lead to wrinkles and sagging.

Last but not least, there’s Nano-Lipobelle H EQ10. This is a bit of a mouthful but it’s actually CoEnzyme Q10 in a nano-emulsion form. This can penetrate through several layers and absorb free radicals, resulting in fewer wrinkles and greatly improved smoothness.

These are just some of the exciting new ingredients being used in the best natural skin care products for men.
So there’s no need to put up with dry, red, aging faces any more!

Ideally, you’ll want to find brands that include all these ingredients and more to keep your face looking as young as possible or to reverse the aging effects of outdoor activities.

This won’t always be easy as many of the big name manufacturers haven’t started using these substances yet. But there are some companies specialising in natural products who offer competitively priced, cutting-edge creams and lotions specially designed for men. Skin care technology is no longer reserved only for ladies’ brands!
