This is something that would have been unthinkable about 10 years ago. Yet today, things have changed a lot to the point that men are actually taking an active role in taking care of their physical appearance. Just the other day, my brother-in-law was telling me about getting a facial. A facial! That would have been laughable for the ordinary man years back. Not anymore.
There is a wide range of products out in the market today meant especially for men. Whether we like it or not, there are certain differences in the make up of our skins from that of menís. So what are the basics for menís skin care? Well itís the same as what we women normally use, except that the products are designed for men. Facial soap, astringent, and even moisturizing cream Ė thatís about it.
Though there are a lot of men who consider themselves ďmetrosexualĒ Ė that is, men who take good care of their physical appearance Ė there are still those men who prefer to do nothing but wash off their faces with water. My husband is one of them. So how do you convince them to try and have a skin care regimen? I honestly donít know! Iíve been trying but the truth of the matter is, his skin is better than mine!
I suppose it all boils down to genetics. Then again there must be some truth using as few products as possible on your face. Any thoughts on this?
