July 28, 2021

Skincare tips for men

With the lovely summer sun come the bane of pimples sprouting on your face. These pesky things ruin a perfectly good brunch or beach day, making you a little less confidence in your appearance. For this reason, we are here to inform you of 4 revised tips on how to keep pimples far, far away.

What Causes Pimples In Summers?

The excess heat and humidity during the summer season make us sweat profusely. As a result, our skin cells become stickier than usual! Debris and sebum starts to collect on the outer surface of our skin, leading to inflammation in the form of acne.

How to Avoid Pimples?

Interestingly, pimples are not just caused by the bacteria from our hands but also from the products we use. If you have sensitive skin, any products with harsh ingredients can aggravate the skin, leading two or three pimples to pop up on your face.

1. Use an Oil-Free Sunscreen

When you’re heading out to the beach in the scorching summer heat, of course you will lather layers and layers of sunscreen on your face. However, the problem isn’t with applying sunscreen, but with applying the worn kind of sunscreen.

Most sunscreens have a high oil content that can clog your pores, making you susceptible to acne. Instead, try using Category Men’s oil free daily moisturizer, which is a lightweight solution that offers protection from sun, allowing your skin to breathe!

2. Religiously Cleanse Your Skin

While it is important to cleanse your skin all year round, this step becomes even more important tin the summers. All day, our skin collects oil, sweat and dirt, which can easily seep down in our pores and cause the eruption of pimples.

Therefore, it is important to use Category Men’s Purifying Green Tea Cleanser, a paraben-free cleanser that will clean your pores without over-drying or irritating sensitive skin. Since green tea oil is good for acne, this is a win-win solution for all those who are looking to fight acne this season.

3. Use the Right Shaving Items for Men

After shaving, men’s skin often gets stripped of its natural moisture. This lack of moisture causes the skin to produce more oil, and this excess oil causes acne. Therefore, it is important for men to choose the right shaving items since they directly come in contact with their skin.

We recommended using Category Men’s Post Shave Serum that is free from harsher chemicals that aggravate the skin. It helps to replenish the skin’s natural moisture, keeping your skin hydrated and pimple-free!

4. Use a Hydrating Face Cream

While it sounds counter-productive, it is more than essential to moisturize your skin eve during summers. Failure to do so will result in lackluster skin.

To ensure your skin remain clean and hydrated, try using Category Men’s Ultimate Hydrating Serum. This face cream for men contains Hyaluronic Acid, which is non-oily and lightweight.

Category Men offers you the best men's skin care products to take care of your skin and kiss your pimple-woes goodbye this summer!
