Skincare isn’t about vanity, it’s a form of healthcare. Skin is the largest organ of the human body and skincare is how we can care for it. Many people think skincare is just something women do as part of their makeup process, but it’s so much more than that. Everyone should have a skincare routine — and that includes men! For redhead men, it’s extra important to take care of your skin so it stays healthy. Starting a skincare routine can be beneficial for anyone, including men with red hair.

How to start a routine: 

We get it. Most guys don’t want some long complicated skincare routine — and that’s okay. The best way to start a skincare routine is with the basics. The most important things you can do for your skin are cleansing, moisturizing, and SPF. If you want to tackle other issues like early signs of aging, acne, or redness you can add in more products, but a simple skincare routine is really all that’s necessary. Here are some tips to help you get started and stick to it:

1. Keep it simple: Start with a basic routine that includes cleansing, moisturizing, and sunscreen. This simplicity makes it easier to stick to your routine.

2. Choose products wisely: Look for skincare products that are gentle and suitable for your skin type. Consider products with ingredients like niacinamide, hyaluronic acid, and antioxidants, which can help address common skincare concerns.

3. Establish a routine: Set aside time in the morning and evening to cleanse, moisturize, and apply sunscreen. Consistency is key to seeing results.

4. Be patient: Results won’t happen overnight. Give your skincare routine time to work, and don’t be discouraged if you don’t see immediate improvements.

5. Protect your skin: Sunscreen is essential, especially for individuals with fair skin like many redheads. Choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher and apply it every day, even on cloudy days.

6. Listen to your skin: Pay attention to how your skin reacts to different products and adjust your routine accordingly. If a product causes irritation or discomfort, stop using it and try something else.

7. Stay hydrated and eat a healthy diet: Drinking plenty of water and consuming a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and healthy fats can help support overall skin health.

8. Consider professional advice: If you’re unsure where to start or have specific skincare concerns, consider consulting a dermatologist for personalized recommendations.

Why cleansing is important: 

Cleansing your skin is like washing your body. You need to remove the excess dirt, oils, and build-up that happens over the course of the day. Washing your face 1-2 times per day is a good way to keep your skin healthy and reduce blemishes. Washing your face in the morning and at night is an easy way to remember, or you can even opt to wash it in the shower.

Why moisturizing is important: 

Our skin needs hydration, or it becomes dry, cracked, and damaged. Applying a lightweight, sensitive skin-safe moisturizer morning and night will help your skin tremendously. In the winter months, or if you spend a lot of time outdoors, you might need something a little heavier. 

Why SPF is important 

The single most important skincare product you can use? SPF! Redhead men are at a much higher risk of skin cancer than any other hair color, and using proper sun protection is the only proven way to reduce that risk. SPF isn’t just for wearing in the summer at the beach, it should be worn every single day. Apply your SPF after all your other skincare and try to reapply throughout the day if you can. Increasing your use of SPF will greatly reduce your risk of cancer, sun damage and early signs of aging. 

Rock it like a Redhead!
