8 Tips, for optimal facial care for women and men
Skin care does not have to be expensive
Of course, you can buy skin care products in all price categories. But often simple products are already sufficient. Skin care products from the pharmacy are particularly useful. They are even recommended by many dermatologists.
Care for your skin intensively before going to bed
Especially in the evening, when you find enough time for yourself and your skin care, facial care is really fun, isn’t it? Before you go to bed, pamper your skin thoroughly with a facial cleansing brush before you start to care for it. Your skin will thank you because it regenerates itself overnight and can best use the care before going to bed.
Treat yourself to a facial massage
To give your skin a rosy glow, you can easily give yourself a little facial massage. You can do this either with your fingertips or with a face roller. Your skin will be visibly firmer and will have a rosy complexion. It is best to use a facial care product that does not cause too much friction.
The sun protection factor is important
Dermatologists also swear by skin care products that contain an integrated sun protection factor. This will not age your skin as quickly and will also protect you from skin cancer. You can easily compensate for the white residue that sometimes appears by using highlighter, tanning cream or make-up.
Don’t forget your neck and décolleté area
Did you know that there are extra skin care products for your neck and décolleté area? Take care of the area below your chin regularly. This is because your décolleté is susceptible to the same signs of skin damage.
Leave all blemishes and pimples alone
Often, by working on our blemishes and pimples, we do a lot more damage to our skin than was already there. This is due to the fact that our hands are often covered with bacteria. So open skin areas in particular are more likely to become further inflamed. In addition, you will not have great success especially when squeezing out a cyst, i.e. a pimple under the skin.
Never mix any products indiscriminately
If you use too many products at once, you might clog your pores rather than achieve positive results. In addition, you should thoroughly check which products can be combined with each other due to their ingredients. The rule is: using several products will not produce a better result.
From the thinnest to the thickest layer
In order for your skin to absorb the skincare products in the best possible way, it is very important to apply the products in the right order. Apply thin products first and add the heavy products at the end, which form a barrier between the air and the skin. This way your skin is ideally protected for the night.

What to do for combination or oily skin?
Men tend to have combination or oily skin. This is due to the high production of sebum, which is stimulated by testosterone. Gentle cleansing is advantageous for oily skin. Especially gels are very suitable for this. Afterwards, a light care product, such as a hydrogel, should definitely be used. Too sharp cleansing products should be avoided.
