Man Shaving Tips

It's important for a man to avoid blemishes or any type of embarrassing skin problems. Below are a couple of self tested solutions to keep a man's skin clean and healthy.

It all starts here, shaving. Most men start there day off shaving and the first mistakes are the products we use for shaving. For the most part, men's shaving creams contain ingredients that can be very irritating for your skin. Especially for men who have sensitive skin or any type of special skin problem, choosing the right type of shaving cream and aftershaves can make a heck of a difference. It's worth spending a couple of extra bucks on natural o special formulated men skin care products that won't harm your skin and that way you'll avoid embarrassing red spots, itching and burning.

Does your skin burn, get red, bumpy or nick easily after you shave? This is a problem I dealt with myself. Using shaving creams or gels that contain glycerin or aloe should solve this problem. Aside from leaving your skin refreshed, it also allows your razor to glide along your face.

If you shave with razor blades, then you should be even more careful. Usually after shaving, men slap on some alcohol based after shaving that stings or irritates the skin until you scream like Macaulay Culkin in Home Alone. It's simple; would you pour some alcohol on an open cut? No. So why do this to your face! If it burns, tingles or irritates don't use it. There are tons of men skin care products online and in stores that give us a sane alternative to alcohol based aftershaves.

Of course, for those of you who don't want to take some advice, here's a tip for irritated skin, razor bumps and burns. Aspirin. Aspirin is a very effective anti inflammatory for irritated skin and soothes the redness razor bumps and burns. Here's how to get some peace, take one or two aspirin tablets, dissolve it in about two tablespoons of water and then apply that to your face with a cotton pad.

When it comes to treating breakouts, preventing wrinkles, and addressing dry skin, use skin care products made for men! These are great solutions, especially for men who take more consideration on their appearance. There are a variety of skin care products for men that treat specific areas such as anti aging, sensitive skin, dry skin, oily skin and so on. Personally I would recommend you use products that are natural or contain natural ingredients. Spending just a couple of minutes on your facial appearance can be very beneficial. Sure it sounds girlish now, but when that girl across the bar is winking at you... You'll know it was worth every minute.
