MEN'S SKIN CARE

 

The male skin is different from the female skin in many ways. It is generally thicker and has more and thicker hairs, especially in the beard and mustache. Due to hormonal stimulation, there is increased production of sebum and therefore, it tends to be oilier than female skin, appearing brighter and with enlarged pores. In this case, the use of cosmetic lotions or creams is not well tolerated. Nevertheless, a man’s skin can also be mixed, dry or sensitive.

To keep male skin looking healthy, some daily care is essential. The skin should be washed daily using a soap suited to the skin type in order to remove dead skin cells, grease and impurities. The use of products to prevent skin aging, such as antioxidants and light acids is also recommended. Presentations in the form gel or foam are preferred by men. The use of sunscreen is another important measure to prevent aging and skin cancers. It is now known that not only ultraviolet light from the sun or lamps, but also the visible light, cause skin blemishes. For this reason, sunscreen should be used daily. During sun exposure, while outdoors or when practicing sports, sunscreen should be applied to exposed areas and reapplied every two hours. In all cases, a dermatologist can recommend specific products for the needs of every patient.

 

Common alterations to male skin

Acne: acne is very common in men’s skin due to the influence of male hormones. It appears in adolescence and may last into adulthood. The appearance of blackheads, pimples and cysts can be treated with topical and/or systemic medications, lasers and skin cleansing.

In general, patients with acne often have oily skin, are more prone to dilation of the pores and the appearance of sebaceous hyperplasia.

Baldness or androgenetic alopecia: baldness is a problem that depends on genetic factors related to the individual. It begins after adolescence, and early treatment in this type of hair loss and in others can ensure better results.

Ingrown hairs and folliculitis: inflammation and infection of ingrown hairs is very common in the area of the beard and neck. They may be treated with acids, antibiotics and soothing substances. Epilation of the affected areas usually solves this problem.

Excess sweat or hyperhidrosis: this is very common in the underarm region, trunk and face. It may cause embarrassment, since a significant number of men wear long-sleeved shirts and suits at work. Botulinum toxin applications are quite effective and can administered annually in most cases.

Fungal infections of the nails or onychomycosis: stimulated by constantly wearing closed shoes, fungal infections of the toenails are very common in men. The first appear as a painless detachment of the free edge of the nail. If they go untreated, they can become chronic, resulting in thickening and deformities of the nails.
