Have you ever wondered about the skin differences between men and women? Although it’s technically the same organ, the skin is physically different between the sexes. Because of varying hormones, men’s skin is thicker and rougher than the average woman’s skin. With this fact in mind, men also have unique skin problems that they must face.
From dry to irritated skin, men do have the tools to fight off these frustrating conditions. Explore some of the skin issues that plague men and how to deal with them. There are simple solutions that don’t take a lot of time in the morning or night.
1. Dry Lips
Women may pay a lot of attention to their lips, but men also have concerns about this sensitive area. They’re constantly exposed to the elements, which creates these common issues, such as:
• Cracked surfaces
• Flaky sections
• Bloody lips
Treat those lips right with constant moisture. A basic, lip balm in your back pocket is a smart solution, but try a more effective alternative.
Argan oil is a pure lubricant that has complex, moisturizing qualities. Dab a few drops of this oil onto your lips, and it can moisturize the area for the rest of the day.
2. Irritation After Shaving
Shaving your face can create skin problems because it’s a task that must be completed almost every day. Follow these steps to reduce irritation during shaving, including:
• Exfoliating the face
• Switching to a safety razor
• Rubbing on lotion-based shaving cream
• Applying a calming aftershave
Also consider argan oil as a moisturizer for your stubble or beard. Use the oil on your face before the shaving process. The hairs won’t be so rough, and your skin remains moisturized. As a result, fewer irritations occur while your skin glows from the natural oil.
3. Cracked Fingertips
Follow these simple steps to treat those cracked fingertips, such as:
• Applying a hand lotion at least twice a day
• Dab argan oil onto the cracked areas at night
• Wear gloves as you sleep to keep the oil and lotion concentrated on your skin
Cracked fingertips might get so irritating that you’ll need to wear a bandage over the area. Take advantage of this covering by adding argan oil to the skin. Treat the cracked area with argan oil all day, and you’ll see rapid healing results.
Dry fingertips also happens if you have dry hands. In our recent article “2018’s Best Remedies for Dry Hands”, we discussed the common problems associated with dry hands and how they can be treated using natural remedies.
4. Chronic Dry Skin
When you have chronic dry skin on your face, a daily skincare regimen is critical. Apply a moisturizer to your face in the morning and evening. This product doesn’t have to be a female-designed mixture either.
It’s possible to use argan oil as a moisturizer. A few drops spread across your face will do wonders for your complexion. Apply it as a base moisturizer so that you can add other products on top of it. SPF-based lotions should be used each day that you’re out in the sunny elements.
