Common Skin Problems for Men: Dry skin

Written By SkynSin .


This is the opposite of oily! Dry skin can feel itchy, flaky, tight, and can even cause breakouts.

Lack of sleep, too little water, too much coffee, too much sun exposure, not to mention regular wear and tear of the skin through shaving often leads to chronic dryness of the skin.

It’s important to make certain lifestyle changes in order to remedy this like drinking at least three litres of water a day, getting enough sleep, using sun block and eating healthy.

Fact: Dehydrated skin actually causes your sebaceous glands to overproduce oil to compensate for the lack of hydration!

Ready for a men’s grooming routine that will help minimise dry skin problems? Here you go!

  • Use a face wash for men twice daily (choose a product designed for dry skin)

  • Follow up with face moisturiser for men (oil-free formula is best). This will lock in moisture and prevent your skin from getting dried out by the sun and other conditions - a must if you suffer from dry skin.

  • Use sheet masks to really help deal moisture back to the skin, particularly if you don't like to use heavy, greasy creams. Masks with nourishing serums or hyaluronic acid can rehydrate the skin without any sticky sensation!
