It is natural for a man to cringe at the mere mention of using moisturizing products. These products tend to get icky and stuffy for the skin. If you are unlucky, you might inadvertently find a moisturizer that can clog pores and cause the eruption of nasty pimples. Needless to say, a man has a lot of reasons to stay away from moisturizing products.
But you should not let your skin turn dry because of these issues. Prevention is better than cure. That being said, you can be one step ahead of dry skin problems with the following tips:
1. Cut down your consumption of coffee, soda and alcohol.
One of the main causes of dermis dryness is excessive caffeine intake. Caffeine tends to constrict blood vessels resulting to the improper flow of fluid and red blood cells in the blood vessels. Caffeine is abundant in coffee and soda. If you drink loads of them daily, your skin will surely turn dry and flaky easily.
Alcohol also has the same effects. Moreover, it increases your need to go to the bathroom. It also impedes fluid circulation leading to the loss of essential dermis moisture.
2. Avoid staying under the sun for a prolonged period of time.
The sun's ultraviolet rays are damaging in such a way that they fry skin tissues and collagen fibers. They also dissipate the natural moisture and lipids found in our dermis. The key to the prevention of sun damage is through the use of sun block products. Choose sun block products that can deflect UVA and UVB rays.
3. Eat your fruits and your vegetables.
Heed the advice of nutritionists and eat a good serving of fruits and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables contain fibers and water. According to experts, you don't need to consume 8 glasses of water daily if you are eating a good serving of fruits and vegetables. They augment your daily water requirement.
4. Use a natural moisturizing product.
Use a natural moisturizer that can correct and repair problems in the integumentary system. Choose a product that contains CynergyTK, Phytessence Wakame and Nano Lipobelle HEQ10.
CynergyTK is an ingredient that has been extracted from the wool of sheep. This ingredient supplies keratin to your dermis. Keratin is needed to regenerate collagen and elastin to improve the resilience of your dermis. Phytessence Wakame is a type of Japanese sea kelp that can prevent the loss of hyaluronic acid. This acid is vital for the lubrication of collagen proteins. Nano Lipobelle HEQ10 is a natural free radical scavenger. This antioxidant is made up of smaller molecules so it can penetrate deeper into the skin.
Don't deal with dry skin all day. Use these prevention tips and you can have soft and dewy skin.
