There’s a lot of information available to men on improving your skincare and products that can help with anti-ageing, however something often overlooked is what we are currently doing everyday that damages our skin. Not only are you causing harm to your body, but you’re actively reducing the effectiveness of your skincare products. So here are a few things that you experience almost everyday and how we recommend reducing their impact.
1) Overuse of Indoor Swimming Pools
To clarify, we’re not arguing against a good swimming regime, however the effects Chlorine can have on your skin can potentially cause a great deal of irritation and damage. Even after a post-swim shower, chlorine can stick to the skin for hours and react with cleansers, moisturisers and everyday pollution. This can result in issues such as dry skin, spots and rashes that are not only uncomfortable but will actively degrade the elasticity and strength of the epidermis.
We Recommend: Using a bodywash rather than simply standing under the water helps. Washes with extra bubbles or an exfoliating shower gel will help remove more of the chlorine and help reduce the damage it does to your skin. View Post
