How to get clear skin for men: A men's skincare guide

How to get clear skin for men: A men's skincare guide

Achieving clear, glowing skin is a goal shared by many men, but it requires understanding the factors that impact skin health and adopting a tailored skincare routine. Men's skin, like women's, varies widely in type, including sensitive skin, which is prone to reactions; normal skin, which is well-balanced; dry skin, lacking moisture; oily skin, prone to excess sebum; and combination skin, which can vary across different areas of the face. Each type requires specific care to maintain clarity and radiance. Ella Allred provides tips for men to help get clear, glowing skin.

Factors impacting men's skin health

Men's skin health can be influenced by several factors, including genetics, environmental exposures (including sun exposure and pollution), lifestyle choices and skincare habits. Understanding these influences helps in selecting the right products and routines to achieve optimal skin health.

Diet is a major factor that affects skin health. The nutrients needed for normal skin cell turnover include zinc, biotin and protein. Omega 3 fats from walnuts, chia seeds and algae oil help to keep inflammation away and help the skin appear smoother.

Tips to get clear, glowing skin

To achieve clear, glowing skin, men can follow these essential tips:

Cleanse daily: Use a gentle cleanser designed for your type of skin to remove dirt, oil and impurities without stripping natural oils.

Exfoliate regularly: Exfoliation takes away dead skin cells, unclogs pores and promotes cell turnover. Choose a scrub or exfoliating cleanser suited to your skin's sensitivity level.

Moisturise: Hydrate your skin with a moisturiser formulated for men to maintain its natural moisture balance and prevent dryness.

Healthy diet and hydration: Eat a balanced diet that is rich in fruits, vegetables, polyphenols and omega 3 fatty acids. In our latest skin research only 46% of people said that they regularly drink two litres of water a day. This can directly impact your skin, if there is insufficient water intake, skin will become dry and itchy, and have a poor complexion and dull appearance. This is why it's important to drink enough water to keep your skin hydrated from within. You may be interested in reading the best foods and vitamins for healthy, glowing skin or trying one of our 5 easy smoothie recipes for glowing skin.

Manage stress: In research of over 500 people, 78% of people said they feel stressed at least once a week. Stress can exacerbate skin issues. Try relaxation techniques, including meditation or yoga, to keep stress levels in check.
