Men's Products for Sun Damaged Skin
Powerful Anti-Aging Skin Care for Men
Efficient skin care products, backed by scientific research work quickly to reverse the signs of aging. Having a complete skin care routine with the best skin-rebuilding ingredients will keep you looking younger as the years pass.
The best skin-rebuilding ingredients backed by science that you can use in your skin care routine are:
- Retinoids (ingredients related to vitamin A). They build collagen, reverses skin thinning and uneven skin pigmentation.
- Glycolic Acid (the best alpha hydroxy acid to fight skin aging). This acid also helps build collagen, improve uneven skin color, hydrate dry flakey skin, and soften crusty age spots.
- Vitamin C helps improve dark skin pigment. It is a powerful antioxidant and fights sun damage. It also builds collagen.
- Green Tea Antioxidants, that sooth skin irritation and redness. It loads skin with protective antioxidants to fight aging and sun damage.
- Zinc Oxide Sunscreen. I have sunscreens with broad spectrum protection against UV-induced destruction. UV damage is the number one cause of skin aging, and must be blocked.
What else happens to a man's skin due to sun damage?
Sun damage causes skin to become rough, thin and weathered appearing. Rashes like rosacea can get worse due to the sun too. With sun damage comes age-related skin changes too including dry skin and seborrhea of the face, scalp and even the chest and back.
Build a Complete Skin Care Routine with powerful ingredients that rebuild skin structures and that fight common men's skin problems, and get fast results and younger looking skin.
Facial Skin Care to Fight Sun Damage and the Appearance of Skin Aging
Cleanse: Wash your skin twice a day. Use a general cleanser such as Daily Foaming Facial Cleanser, which is great for wet shaving too. Alternate it with the Calming Zinc bar if you suffer from rosacea or seborrhea, like many men do.
Correct: In the morning, apply Green Tea Antioxidant Therapy to fight redness and load skin with antioxidants for the day.
At night, apply Retinol Intensive Anti-Wrinkle Cream. Follow it immediately with Glycolic Acid Face Cream. This second product also hydrates your skin. If you have sensitive skin, start with the Retinol. If not, you can pick either.
Hydrate: Use the Daily Moisturizing Face Cream for Normal to Oily Skin on areas of dryness. This includes the jawline, and around the eyes. Men's T-zones often have adequate oil gland production, and will naturally hydrate skin.
Protect: Wear broad spectrum sunscreen daily. Apply on all exposed skin. UV exposure of even small amounts starts a cascade of chemical events inside skin that result in collagen destruction. Sun also causes age spots and uneven skin pigment. Pick your sunscreen to match your skin type and needs. The most popular options for men include:
- Sheer Strength Pure Physical Spray SPF 50+ Sunscreen. This a favorite that's invisible, and easy to spread – even on hairy arms and legs or on top a thinning scalp. You don’t want skin cancer there, trust me!
- Sheer Strength Pure Physical Invisible SPF 50+ Sunscreen. This light-weight sunscreen never feels heavy or thick on your skin.
- Sheer Strength Pure Physical Tinted Matte SPF 50+ Sunscreen. This is a favorite for oily complexions with oil-absorbing technology.
- EltaMD UV Clear. A good facial product for all skin types!
- Solbar Zinc. It is water-resistant for sweating or swimming.
- Citrix. It is also water-resistant, and with a drier feel than Solbar Zinc
Body Skin Care to Fight Sun Damage and the Appearance of Skin Aging
Cleanse, Correct, and Hydrate with the Ultra-Fast AHA Body Smoothing Kit. The High-strength glycolic acid gets the job done. Body skin is uniquely tough and retinoids, antioxidants and vitamin C can’t really penetrate. That leaves us with glycolic acid, which works beautifully to fight skin aging concerns.
Follow up and protect with Sheer Strength Pure Physical Spray Sunscreen, Citrix, or Solbar Zinc.
