Men also take care of their beauty – Skincare tips for dad
This month we would like to dedicate it to the boys and take the opportunity to share some beauty tips for them. Be it a teenager, a college student, a husband, a dad, a grandpa… guys must also take care of their beauty!
Shaving is one of men’s biggest headaches. The constant use of the razor may cause face irritation, with inflammations and constant rash. To avoid this, it is important to use a quality razor and to always clean it before and after each use, disinfecting the blades with a bit of alcohol. The best time to shave is in the morning, when the skin is relaxed after sleeping. Use shaving cream to help the razor slide smoothly. And always use an after-shave lotion to avoid irritation.
If your skin is not greasy, you can apply Capilo Almond Oil once a week, after shaving. Let it work for 10 minutes and rinse it with warm water. Then dry your skin softly, without scrubbing it. This will help hydrate your skin deeply. However, always ask your dermatologist before trying anything new on your face.
Many men overlook the importance of taking care of their skin. But a well-treated face even makes shaving easier and less traumatic. All skin types need hydration, especially in our always-sunny and hot, tropical weather. The skin care routine must include cleaning lotion, toner and hydrating cream. The selection of these products would depend on your skin type –for example, dry skins should use creamy textures, while greasy skins should use gel textures. Ask your dermatologist which products are more recommended for your skin needs.
Your body needs hydration and care as well, therefore you should always have a body lotion that carries nutritive ingredients such as coconut, cocoa, aloe vera or almonds. Use it always after showering.
We can’t stop saying it. Due to our weather, using sunscreen is highly important. The constant sun exposure can dehydrate your skin, provoking premature aging and dark spots that can be irreversible. Use a sunblock daily, with at least SPF15, and one even more powerful if you go to the beach or the pool. Also, use a cap to avoid direct sun exposure whenever you go to walk or workout outdoors.
If after a few beach days your skin is burned by the sun and is peeling, use Capilo Coconut Oil in the affected area to help regenerate the skin.
Baldness is one of men’s biggest fears. It can happen due to aging, but it can also be premature in certain cases, depending of hereditary factors that can cause it. To avoid hair loss, you can try our Capilo B-Control line, created with shoe sole extract that acts as a scalp strengthener; and cinnamon, which stimulates the scalp to promote the growth of new hair, stronger and shinier.
Dandruff can be caused by different factors. A dermatologist can help you figure out your specific situation. However, there are two main opposite factors that can be very common. The first one occurs to those with greasy scalp, in which dandruff appears as the accumulation of grease and product residuals. To avoid this, wash your hair twice a week with a specialized anti-dandruff shampoo, and avoid using greasy products.
Ironically, in the opposite case –when the scalp is very dry-, the skin tends to peel and appear as small white flakes. In this cases, it’s important to use hydrating products that improve the skin texture. Our Capilo Rosemary Oil is also recommended in these cases, applying it directly in the affected area during 10 minutes before washing your hair. Then wash your hair, massaging the scalp slowly, without too much pressure.
