When it comes to skin care and cosmetics, feminine products are the first to come to mind. However, men also have a right to their skin care products. Whether it's for showering, shaving, intimate hygiene, skin care, or for smelling good all day long, men also need to take care of themselves every day.
Showering : shampoos for men
Like women, men need to wash, but they have different tastes and needs. Indeed, men's hair is different from women's hair and therefore they need adapted care to wash themselves.
Male hair needs as much attention as female hair. However, their needs vary: men's scalp is generally thicker and produces more sebum. As a result, men's hair is prone to become oily more quickly or to develop dandruff. Products are therefore specially created to wash men's scalp.
In addition, even if a shampoo is technically suitable for everyone, its fragrance will not appeal to both men and women, hence the separate lines.
Baldness, oily roots, grey, dull or fragile hair... whatever the problem, it is now possible to find the shampoo that is perfectly adapted for both the smell and the benefits:
Early morning shaving is an essential part of the male routine. Some prefer to have a hairless face while others enjoy wearing a beard. Depending on their preferences, men will either shave closely or maintain their beard daily, and either way, care is required.
The razor blade is a rather aggressive tool for facial skin. It is therefore useful for men to take care of their skin before and after shaving. The use of these different products will thus limit the irritation caused by the blades.
To use a product when shaving softens the skin before the blade passes through.
Several products exist to play this role and the choice of one of them depends on preferences:
La crème à raser
However, most of the care takes place after the shaving stage. Aftershave care is important because it aims to calm skin irritation but also to avoid the development of a possible infection due to a microcut.
Several types of aftershave care can be distinguished:
Aftershave balm: it is a substance with a texture similar to a cream. It is based on plants with soothing properties such as calendula for example.
Moisturizing gel: it is applied in large quantities to the skin and penetrates deeply to moisturize the internal layers of the epidermis.
The aftershave fluid: it is an easy to apply fluid that easily penetrates the skin.
Mineral aftershave: they are less known but work just as well. They are stones or powders to be rubbed against the face to soothe irritation.
Intimate hygiene: 8 tips to adopt
Do not wash more than once a day as this removes the protective layer from the skin.
Don't forget your testicles when you shower.
Remember to clean under the foreskin where dirt tends to settle.
Avoid rubbing your penis with a towel, pat it instead. This will avoid irritating it.
Wipe your private parts well after showering and using the toilet because it is with humidity that bacteria develop.
Never spray perfume or deodorant on your private parts as this can cause inflammation.
Shave and trim your pubic hair regularly.
Prefer airy underwear made of cotton and without synthetic materials.
Deodorant for man: for a long-lasting freshness.
As with the rest of the men's skin care products, deodorants come in a multitude of choices depending on their shape (roll, stick or spray) and fragrance. Thus, it is necessary to determine one's needs before choosing a type of deodorant because a spray deodorant will not cover the same needs as a roll.
The spray deodorant: it is easy and fast to apply and its smell is more pronounced than a roll or a stick.
The roll-on deodorant: it is a deodorant that is easy to carry and has the advantage of drying quickly without staining clothes. It is applied directly to the skin and its antiperspirant action lasts up to several hours.
The deodorant stick: This dry stick differs from other forms of deodorant because it does not wet the skin. It has a discrete perfume and an effective antiperspirant action.
