Simplified Best Skincare Routine for Men


Skincare Routine for Men: Long gone are the days when beauty and skin care products were limited to women. The modern man is as conscious of the need to not just look good and youthful but also stay healthy and feel good. 

With the market now flooded with a whole lot of skin care products that cater to men specifically, finding the perfect one suited to your skin type and concerns can be as intimidating for men (if not more) as for women. This is a quick guide for men who are looking out for simple and effective ways that can be integrated into their busy lifestyles  to maintain healthy skin and hair.

Why do men need a skincare routine anyway?

  • Your skin is the largest organ in your body and is a sign of how healthy you are on the inside.
  • A good skincare routine keeps your skin healthy, improves skin texture and prevents problems like acne breakouts and skin infections.
  • Helps prevent skin tanning, irritation, redness and uneven skin tone.
  • Staves off premature wrinkling of skin which can make you look older than you are.
  • Men’s skin also is much more exposed to pollution and environmental toxins. This makes the skin look dull and feel coarse if the skin is not cleansed periodically and properly.
  • Since the area around hair follicles in general produces more oil, men suffer from acne breakouts in the beard and chin area. Shaving over the acne only leads to aggravation of the condition.
  • Last but not the least, taking care of yourself every day helps to de-stress and makes you feel more confident and happy about yourself.

Weekend special--Whenever you find a little extra time to pamper your skin further(especially over the weekend), you can add and a couple of extra steps to your regular CTM routine. An Ayurvedic herbal steam bath regulates internal water metabolism in your skin. It also allows pores to open up to allow cleansing and absorption of nutrients, thus reducing the degeneration of skin. Steaming also offers a natural glow to your skin and improves blood circulation. Parama Naturals Enriching Exfoliator and Body Scrub can be used as a nourishing face mask (ubtan) to get a natural glow on the skin. After cleansing your skin,  apply parama Naturals Ubtan all over your face and neck. Wash it off after 10 minutes with lukewarm water. Now mix 2 drops of turmeric essential oil in a steamer or a deep bowl of hot water and steam your face for 5 minutes. Pat dry your skin and moisturize as usual.
