Taking care of your skin: 20 tips

In this article, we'll explore in depth the common mistakes men make when it comes to skin care. We've also put together 10 great ways to take care of your skin. Whether you're new to personal care or simply looking to perfect your current routine, you'll discover 20 crucial tips.

These practical tips will help you avoid the pitfalls and develop the habits you need to achieve healthy-looking, revitalized skin.

10 mistakes to avoid:

  1. Use products that are too aggressive for your skin, or exfoliate too regularly. It will dry out and produce more serum, leading to oily skin, pimples and blackheads. 

  2. Use sudden movements when applying products to your face. Facial skin is a sensitive area, especially around the eyes. To avoid damaging it, apply products with gentle movements. 

  3. Shave dry. It's important to shave after applying suitable products such as shaving cream to prevent irritation, cuts and dryness. 

  4. Touch your pimples. Avoid touching your pimples, as this will aggravate the inflammation. It can also cause scarring and create more pimples. 

  5. Don't ignore signs of skin problems. If you notice persistent dry patches, eczema or acne, don't hesitate to consult a health professional for advice. 

  6. Neglecting your diet. Diet has an impact on the health of your skin. If you eat products that are too fatty, sugary or processed, your skin will react accordingly.

  7. Use a dull blade. Using a blunt razor blade can lead to irritation, ingrown hairs and an uneven shave. 

  8. Neglecting sleep, poor sleep or too short nights lead to a dull complexion, dark circles and aging skin.

  9. Don't moisturize your skin daily.

  10. Smoking damages blood circulation, dulls the complexion and can cause premature wrinkles.

10 good habits to adopt:

  1. Moisturize, especially after shaving. It's essential if you want your skin to stay healthy. Especially after shaving, since your skin is sensitized by the passage of the blade.

  2. Use eye contour cream. The area around your eyes is a very sensitive zone, and is also prone to expression lines. Moisturizing helps maintain firm skin. 

  3. Apply sun cream daily. The sun plays an active role in skin aging, and sunscreen helps protect the skin from its harmful effects. 

  4. Take care of your beard. Just like your skin, your beard needs the right care to keep it healthy. 

  5. Choose products adapted to your skin type. It's vital to know your skin type so you can apply products that match your skin's needs. 

  6. Exfoliate your skin and body. This removes dead skin cells and allows the products you use to penetrate deeply.

  7. Keep a lip balm handy, especially in winter. This will keep your lips moisturized and comfortable all year round. 

  8. Not all skincare products are created equal, which is why the Le Soin par Plisson range is formulated with ingredients of natural origin (95% minimum) and why we have excluded a whole list of harmful ingredients.

  9. Drink enough water. Internal hydration is just as effective as external hydration. Drinking enough water hydrates your skin from the inside out. 

  10. Cleanse your skin regularly. Daily cleansing with a gentle cleanser effectively removes pollution and excess sebum. Your skin will be brighter, and you'll avoid pimples and blackheads.

Ultimately, investing time and attention in your skincare routine by avoiding common mistakes and adopting the right gestures is an investment in your well-being and confidence. By following these practical tips and avoiding the pitfalls we've explored, you'll achieve skin that exudes health and vitality.

With a solid understanding of the mistakes to avoid and the best practices to adopt, you now have the tools you need to tackle the world of men's skin care. Turn your skincare routine into a rewarding experience and discover the lasting benefits of radiant, healthy skin.
