New Delhi, Dec 31, 2016: Avoid common skincare mistakes that most guys make by skipping foaming shave cream and saying no to one soap bar for everything, says an expert.

Josh Meyer, co-founder and CEO of Brickell Men’s Products (mens skin care and grooming brand), pointed out a few mistakes and ways to fix them:

NewsGram brings to you latest new stories in India.

*One soap for everything: Face skin is the most sensitive and has unique skincare needs. Washing your body and face with the same soap is not a good idea.

Start by using a natural face wash for men with organic ingredients. A face wash with activated charcoal is a good option. It removes bacteria and dirt without harsh chemicals that can cause long term damage to your skin.

Ditch your old soap bar and go with a natural soap bar or body wash for men instead.

*Your shave routine might cause skin irritation: Foaming shave cream is no good for your skin. It does a poor job of protecting your skin and lubricating your razor. The air bubbles that you call foam do almost nothing to keep your face irritation-free.

Upgrade to a lotion based no-foam shave cream for men instead. You will notice the difference immediately. Using a high-quality shave cream means less redness, fewer ingrown hairs, and minimal skin irritation or itchiness.

Always finish up with a natural aftershave. It should not contain alcohol. So pick up an aftershave with healing, calming ingredients instead.

*Using face wash for men twice daily is essential: But that doesn’t mean that face moisturiser for men isn’t just as important. Most men should be using moisturiser every time they wash their faces.

*Not using an SPF: Many factors can lead to dry skin, but the sun is by far the number one offender.

Always use sun protection. Make it a part of your routine – right after your moisturiser. Choose a sunscreen rated SPF 15 or higher. (IANS)

As much as the holiday season is all about fun and joy accompanied by overindulgence, it also means an adverse impact on the skin via the combination of alcohol, sugar and little sleep. Therefore no matter what the skin type is, it needs to be pampered and taken care of and a great fix in our busy lives is the facemask.

Neha Rawla, Brand Communication for Forest Essentials elaborates that just as the origins of most beauty rituals can be traced back to the Indian subcontinent, so can be the origin of the application of face masks, also known as Lepana in Sanskrit.

“Different Lepas or masks for maintaining ageless skin, increasing hydration levels, smoothing skin’s imperfections as well as toning and firming skin are mentioned under the ancient art of Lepana in Ayurveda,” said Rawla.

Sangeeta Velaskar, Vice President and Head, Medical Services & R & D from Kaya Limited added that “The facial sheet masks particularly are great for everyday use for instant glow and freshness. It is not a substitute for your everyday skin care regime, but it surely adds to the effect”.

There are various masks that can be used according to the skin type: –

* Cream masks: They are suitable for normal to dry skin types and provide them the required moisture, hydration and softness. This in turn makes the skin healthier, plumper, smoother, tighter and firm.

* Clay masks: Best suited for oily or acne prone skin, these masks naturally detoxify the skin as they hydrate without oil. They are the best to treat clogged pores and congestion as they remove impurities while mattifying the texture and minimizing the pores. These masks balance the oil levels and regulate the oil secretion on the skins surface, along with smoothening and softening the skin by removing the dust build up on it.

* Gel masks: Ideal for sensitive and dehydrated skin types, these masks are gentle and lightweight. Along with calming and hydrating they also play a role in firming and tightening the skin.

* Sheet masks: The most popular amongst the lot and definitely a rage these days. These masks are easy to use and are extremely convenient to handle. These suit almost every skin type and are available in many variants; thus the user needs to select accordingly. Made popular by the K Beauty trend, these masks are essentially used to hydrate the skin and reduce puffiness.

* Exfoliating masks: Exfoliation is an important part of the skin care routine and is done once in a while to get rid of the dead skin cells, blackheads etc. These masks along with exfoliation also contain natural skin brightening agents. These are also suitable for all skin types, however those with sensitive skin should opt for the less abrasive ones.

Peel off masks: These provide an instant glow as they physically remove any dirt/dust or blackheads settled on the top layer of the skin. These masks are suitable for all skin types. (IANS)
