Many men make the initial mistake of believing that skin care is only something women do. The male morning skin care regimen often involves bumbling about in the bathroom knocking over perfume bottles, cosmetics, and cleansers to get to the shaving cream and razor.
According to Dr. Jeffry Dover, from Yale’s School of Medicine, it makes no difference how attractive you are what clothes you wear, how healthy you might be or you are what hairstyle you have, you can still have blotchy skin, freckled skin, or skin conditions that are holding you back from looking and feeling your best. Good skin care involves checks for skin cancer in addition to making efforts to look your best. Over a million skin cancer cases occur every year, and some eight thousand result in death.
Men who are mistakenly thinking that skin care is too feminine a practice, think again when you consider the following information:
- As per a study conducted in 2012, women are more attracted to men who have a healthier complexion and skin color than they are a masculine look.
- Since men are not often likely to have their skin checked, they are also more likely to suffer the ramifications of not being checked, like the undesired advancement of a melanoma and this will lead to the demand for a more radical treatment. Of those who die from melanomas, 50% of the individuals are white males over the age of 50.
- Men spend more time outdoors than women do and therefore have greater amounts of UV ray exposure, as well as exposure to damaging winds, environmentally based pollutants, and conditions that contribute to hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, and the early signs of aging.
- As per some studies, hiring managers of large corporations have indicated a preference for employees who spend time on looking attractive.
For all of the above reasons, it’s a good idea for men to pay attention to their skin care needs.
