The Ultimate Skincare Guide for Men

Have you ever heard that men only need a simple bar of soap for their daily skincare? Well, it is time to dispel this myth! Men can also benefit greatly from a well-structured skincare routine. But what are the differences between male and female skin? And which products are truly effective in keeping men's skin healthy and radiant? Keep reading to discover all the secrets of men's skincare!

How Does Men's Skin Differ from Women's?

Yes, men's skin has unique characteristics influenced by physiology and hormonal production. Compared to female skin, male skin is significantly thicker and rougher due to high levels of testosterone. This hormonal impact also leads to more active sebum production because of larger sebaceous glands, which, while protecting the skin, can also cause impurities and enlarged pores. Additionally, frequent shaving poses a real challenge for male skin. The razor's movements can cause irritations, redness, and ingrown hairs, making the skin more vulnerable and sensitive.

Did you know? Since male skin is thicker than female skin, it gradually thins over the years at a steady pace. In contrast, women's skin remains relatively unchanged until around the age of 40; after that, it begins to thin rapidly due to a decrease in collagen density. This process occurs more quickly in women than in men of the same age, which can give the impression that women age faster. However, this is not true!

Moreover, despite the differences between male and female skin, it is important to remember that every skin is unique. There are no products exclusively for men or women, only formulations suited to specific skin needs. What really matters is choosing quality products that meet your skin's particular requirements!

Skincare Routine for Men:

Now that we understand the unique characteristics of male skin, it is time to discover how to keep it healthy and balanced. A well-structured routine not only improves appearance but also contributes to overall skin health, preventing irritation, dryness, and signs of aging. Your new routine begins with three simple essential steps: cleansing, moisturizing, and protecting. Here is a practical guide for healthy and balanced skin! 

  1. Cleansing: wash your face twice a day, morning and evening, with a gentle pH-neutral cleanser to remove dirt, oil, and impurities without drying out the skin.
    → Milanesi Skincare recommends the Illuminating Gel Cleanser, which, with its ingredients, cleanses and tones the skin, controls excess oil, and fights acne. Additionally, thanks to vitamins and antioxidants, it keeps the skin healthy and radiant.

  2. Moisturizing: apply a light and refreshing moisturizer immediately after cleansing. In air-conditioned environments, skin tends to dehydrate, so moisturizing is crucial to keep it elastic and soft.
    → Milanesi Skincare recommends the Anti-Aging Moisturizer, which, thanks to its precious ingredients and light formulation, hydrates, protects, and improves skin elasticity, fighting signs of aging and keeping the skin fresh and healthy.

  3. Exfoliation: use a gentle exfoliator once or twice a week to remove dead skin cells and promote cell renewal. This helps prevent clogged pores and keeps the skin glowing.
    → Milanesi Skincare recommends the Purifying Mask, which, thanks to its exfoliating and toning properties, helps keep the skin clean and toned, leaving the face fresh and radiant.

  4. After shaving, it is essential to use a soothing, revitalizing, and refreshing aftershave to prevent post-shave irritation. A product with ingredients like aloe vera or chamomile can help calm the skin and reduce redness.

  5. Finally, as with any beauty routine, it is necessary to finish with sunscreen with SPF 50 every morning, even on cloudy days.
