What Are Common Skin Concerns For Men? 

Men often share common skin concerns on their faces, such as:

  • Acne and Oily Skin: Breakouts and repeat acne can affect men of all ages due to excess oil production, clogged pores, and/or hormonal changes.  
  • Razor Burn or Skin Irritation: Shaving can lead to irritation, razor burns, or ingrown hairs, particularly if not done carefully, or with a proper skin care routine to soothe and protect the skin. 
  • Uneven Skin Tone: Issues like hyperpigmentation, redness, or discoloration may be caused by sun damage, scarring, or inflammation.  
  • Dryness: Men's skin can get dry, especially if not moisturised properly or exposed to harsh environmental conditions.  
  • Fine Lines and Wrinkles: Ageing can lead to the development of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin (see skin laxity), which are common concerns for many men.  

Addressing these skin conditions for men involves adopting a consistent skincare facial routine, proper hydration, sun protection, and professional cosmetic clinic treatments and using high-quality skincare products, like Este Plus

Find Out How You Can Embrace A Proactive Skincare Routine With Este Treatments & Products 

Whether you are a skin care for men beginner, or have been dabbling in male skin care already, we have pulled together tips on how to care for your face and skin. 

Skin care for men starts with practical solutions and common sense tips, for instance: 

  • Wash Your Face Regularly: Cleanse your face 2 x day to remove grime and oil. We recommend our EP Iconic Cleanser for dry or oily skin. 
  • Moisturise Daily: Hydrate your skin with a moisturiser, this helps maintain skin balance and prevents dryness or excessive oiliness.  
  • Use Protection: Apply sunscreen daily, especially when spending time outdoors. Choose a broad-spectrum SPF like Este Plus Supreme SPF 50+.  
  • Groom Carefully: Use a sharp razor, shave in the direction of hair growth, and apply a soothing aftershave to prevent irritation and ingrown hairs. 
  • Exfoliate and Brighten: Regular and professional exfoliation treatments will make your face look brighter, and allow other skincare products to work more effectively, we recommend EP Exfoliation AHA/BHA and EP Brightening Solution
  • Healthy Lifestyle: Maintain a balanced diet, stay hydrated, and get enough sleep. 

These men's skincare habits and product recommendations can significantly impact your skin's health and appearance. Putting these simple face care for men habits into your daily routine will make a noticeable difference in how you look to others.

Dry Skin On Face Male Treatment Options 

Clinical skincare treatments for dry skin in men offer customised solutions that can effectively replenish moisture levels and revitalise the skin. 

Here are Este Medical treatments we recommend for men who are experiencing dry skin, flaky skin, fine lines, dehydrated skin, skin laxity, and signs of ageing:

Dry skin lacks sufficient moisture, leading to a loss of elasticity and plumpness in the skin. This absence of hydration can accentuate fine lines and wrinkles, contributing to an older-looking facial appearance in men.

Clogged, Oily, and Acne Skin On Face Male Treatment Options   

What causes oily skin in males? Oily skin is often caused by overactive sebaceous glands producing excess oil, leading to a shiny complexion. Unfortunately, excess oil production can clog pores, trapping dirt and bacteria, which ultimately leads to acne breakouts and skin congestion. 

How to get clear skin for men treatments! At-home treatments may work to keep skin clear most of the time, but sometimes men just need to bite the bullet and come into the medical clinic for a deep skin cleaning and skin renewing treatment like these popular and non-surgical Este skincare treatments suitable for men: 

The overproduction of oil in the skin can clog pores and contribute to face acne, which can detract from the overall appearance and smoothness of the facial skin of men, creating an unattractive or uneven complexion.
