We all know that men’s skin needs different care but they were never advertised as much as female cosmetic and grooming products. As per Los Angeles Times’ story of growth of men’s cosmetics in the marketplace. Men’s toiletry sales are expected to hit $2.6 billion this year, up from $2.2 billion in 2006, and $3.2 billion in annual sales is anticipated as soon as 2016, as per the reports.
Growing facial hair, men produce more collagen and have far thicker and tougher skin than us. Since men’s activity spectrum is wide, they get exposed to the sun, wind and pollution to a great extent. Skin of men is naturally oily with larger pores and is thicker and rougher with copious hair growth. So, an appropriate skin care routine is needed for men. To begin with, men should realize that proper skin care isn’t going to occupy hours of their busy day. Few minutes a day is all that is necessary.
In order to keep men’s skin calm, clear and strong, they should use products that reduce inflammation caused by shaving. Men’s skin care usually involves using a cleanser, shaving cream, conditioner, a toner, and a moisturizer. But choosing the appropriate product which makes your skin glowing and clear is a difficult task as their are so many products available in the market and almost every brand is using same ingredients to manufacture their products. From all the best brands in market, Oriflame is the best which i recommend for your skin.
Swedish cosmetic brand ‘ Oriflame ‘ is one of the fastest growing beauty companies in the world. With a presence in 62 countries, the brand is one of the leading players in the direct selling industry. In India alone, there are 1,20,000 consultants for Oriflame. There products have gained popularity in the Indian market and also they are available at affordable prices. There are other brands also who have introduced few of their products for men skin care like Garnier and Ponds but their reviews were not so impressive if i have to compare them with the ones manufactured by Oriflame.
So, here are some simple, yet effective additions to your normal skin routine. It might not be what you want, but it’s certainly what your skin needs.
A gentle, effective cleanser can balance both dry and oily areas. Avoid bar soaps, instead use simple foam base face wash as they are more effective as compared to normal face wash.

Use a more emollient formula with additional anti-irritants to soothe skin and try to apply moisturizer all over. Apply the moisturizer just after washing your face as there is no use of applying it after your skin is completely dry. Skin won’t absorb the moisturizer and it will give a greasy texture to your face.

4. Shaving & Grooming
The best time to shave is immediately following your shower, as washing your face will help soften the hairs which will make your shave smoother and less irritating. Don’t use very hot water as that will irritate skin, causing redness and inflammation.
Apply a well-formulated, gentle shave gel or a foam based one. Using a clean, fresh razor, shave with the direction of your hair growth with short strokes. Be sure to rinse your razor often. Run your hands over your face to ensure that you haven’t missed any areas. A fragrance-free shave cream loaded with anti-irritants will make your shave an easier one.
