Skin care for men isn’t spoken about enough even though their skin isn’t far different to women. The underlying problem lies in the portrayal of men in society, wherein an image is cast of them to be rough and robust. This fact is further reinforced when we see an influx of how brands only target women for skincare solutions in marketing campaigns and advertising plugs. The result of this is a market where the conversation of men’s skincare barely exists and is often questioned if it’s even required by the jury of our society.
Men in fact, do require several skin care treatments to aid healthy growth of their external cosmetic features, such as facial hair and their general hairline as examples. Due to a high level of testosterone, men secrete more oil naturally than women. It is important that men themselves have a fair idea of what skin type they have- whether it is oily, dry, matured or a combination of some of these.
Aromatherapy has been gaining popularity in the skincare world and the benefits of these naturally procured oils can potentially make the world of a difference to the overall skin quality for men. These oils work excellently as beard oils, moisturizers, hair oils and even as an
aftershave splash. It is fair to say that essential oils can protect a number of skin issues and adds a protective layer on the skin, all without the use of any harmful chemicals found in most widely available products.
Here’s a look at some of our recommendations of essential oils that can be used for men:
1) Beard oils- Oils such as jojoba, patchouli, and sweet almond are excellent options for making a beard oil that will surely draw benefits to the quality of your facial hair growth.
2) Moisturizing oils- For general skin types, lavender, lemongrass, and eucalyptus are your safest and most versatile bets on finding solutions that maintain the moisture of your skin for longer periods.
3) Aftershave lotions- A classic and a fragrant note of sandalwood and chamomile go a long way in providing you with an alluring scent and keeping your skin pores tight.
