Improve Men’s Skin Health

When it comes to skin health, if there is one thing that both men and women have in common, it’s the desire to have skin that feels and looks fabulous. And while everyone’s skin is unique, there are some characteristics of skin which are common in men, thanks to the male hormone; testosterone.  

Skin thickness is one of these. Men’s skin is 20-25% thicker than women’s. Having thicker skin texture means men are more likely to show signs of ageing later than women. But before you get too excited gents, it also means once the lines and wrinkles form, they tend to be deeper-set. Sticking to a daily skincare routine with high-performance ingredients can support the health of men’s skin and help prevent premature ageing.  

Another common characteristic men tend to endure is oily skin. And because oil production doesn’t slow down in men until much later in life, it can be problematic for a long time if not corrected. It can lead to an avalanche of skin conditions such as acne, blackheads and inflammation; to name a few.  

So guys, let’s dig deeper on how to care for oily skin conditions before they become problematic so you can get the best out of your skin.  

The Turmoil of Oily Skin 

Let’s get one thing straight, both men and women can have oily skin, but it is much more common in men.  Oil known as sebum is produced by the sebaceous glands. Men tend to have larger and more active sebaceous glands, as well as more pores which are larger too. When there’s an overproduction, skin appears shiny and greasy, AKA oily skin. Although this may not look so nice, it’s not entirely bad for skin. But it can become a big problem when excess sebum mixes with dead skin cells and other impurities which then block the pores. Hello spots, blemishes and sensitivity.  

Get Cleansing 

cleanser for oily skin

To help balance oil production, start and finish your day by cleansing with CLR FOAM CLEANSER™. Containing gentle ingredients including Glycolic Acid and Salicylic Acid, it can help control excess oil for a more clarified complexion. And if you’re a clean-cut type of guy, you know that shaving daily can irritate your skin, especially if your skin is already sensitive. For your morning ritual use the cleanser for a lubricating shave. Simply massage in the foam, shave and then wash away all the residue. While we’re talking shaving, always use a clean shaver and shave in the direction hair grows, not against it.  

To work CLR FOAM CLEANSER deeper into your skin, try using the OSCISONIC CLEANSER HEAD. Switch it on and the rapid vibration will do all the work for you, unclogging pores and accelerating skin cell turnover for a luminous complexion.  

The cleanser head perfectly attaches to any 150ml Dp Dermaceuticals™ cleanser tube and with 16,000 acoustic-sonic massage movements per minute, you can feel it buffing away from the moment you press the on button. If you’re prone to ingrown hairs—ouch, they can be painful—the cleanser head can also stimulate them to come to the surface helping to prevent any nasty infections.   

Once finished, lock in moisture with its ‘partner’ product, CLR LOTION™. Containing Manuka Honey, which is known for its potent antibacterial agents, and Niacinamide for its anti-inflammatory properties, it helps calm and soothe any skin irritations.  

Mask up: your must-do task

At least once a week, or more often if you like, treat your skin to a nourishing mask. CLR CLARIFYING MASK™ is a professional-grade mask that’s gentle enough for home use. Made from activated charcoal, two types of organic clay and a vegan pre-probiotic, the mask helps remove oil and unclog pores without stripping the skin. Instead, it calms skin and boosts radiance. Your skin will feel hydrated, fresh and clarified. 

The Power of Microneedling
