To the Men - You Need a Skincare Routine

Skincare does not discriminate; it is not exclusive to women or babies. Men should also take proactive steps in taking care of their skin. While they may have traditionally kept it simple, men are now embracing healthier skincare habits. LEMYKA’s products and skincare routines are designed for everyone, including men. 

  • Men typically have thicker skin; however, this thickness begins to decrease around the age of 40

  • Men tend to have greater oil production than women. Their pores are larger and their skin is more susceptible to impairment.

  • Most men naturally have more hair - so they may require regular shaving for facial grooming. 

These are just a few differences, and as a result, men can encounter their own skin problems. One such problem is shaving related issues. Male hormones contribute to thicker hair growth, leading some men to shave more frequently. However, constant shaving can result in skin problems such as irritation, ingrown hairs, redness, and dryness. 

To avoid these issues, it is important to cleanse the face before shaving, and always use a clean blade or razor to avoid the risk of infections. An electric razor is recommended for those who have sensitive skin or are prone to ingrown hairs, as they are easier to use and are less irritating. Following up with aftershave or aftershave balm can also help prevent skin irritation. 

LEMYKA Healing Lotion - nutrient packed lotion perfect for Rosacea, Acne, facial rashes, and Eczema

Razor burn is a common concern among men, leading to rashes, bumps, irritated skin, and even acne. To address this, consider incorporating LEMYKA's Healing Lotion into your shaving routine. This gentle, nutrient-packed lotion effectively calms redness, itchiness and inflammation. For first-time users, conduct a patch test to make sure no allergic reactions occur. 

This product is also great for men who struggle with rosacea or eczema, as it provides deep skin hydration without any greasiness or residues.

It is also common for men to experience dry skin. Symptoms can include scaly patches, itching, some redness, and an overall feeling of tight, dry skin. This can be a struggle year round, and sun exposure in the warmer months can further damage the skin, gradually thinning it and reducing its ability to hold moisture. Aging can also diminish the production of natural oils that keep the skin hydrated. A moisturizer, such as our Hydration Lotion, can help combat dryness and restore moisture balance.  

These are not the only skin conditions men struggle with. It is important for men to know that solutions exist for many common issues they face. A simple skincare routine can work wonders for your skin’s health. Take a look at our blog post, “Easy AM & PM Skincare Routine” for a simple morning and evening skincare routine that anyone can adopt. Whether dealing with dry or sensitive skin, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, or other concerns, LEMYKA is here to help you find a solution!
