What are Some Self Care Tips for Men

Self-care is hugely important for maintaining high life quality and good happiness levels, but a lot of men neglect their self-care in favour of convenience.
When it comes to self-care, a little goes a long way, so read on and make some easy changes to improve health and wellbeing.  

 

Use Deodorants 

On average, men and women have the same number of sweat glands; however, men sweat more than women because of their muscle mass and additional body weight.

Men tend to sweat twice as much as women; that’s also why men tend to smell of sweat more than women. 

There are two ways to prevent the smell of sweat for men; they can use deodorants or antiperspirants.

Deodorants are designed to mask the smell of sweat when it’s produced; on the other hand, an antiperspirant will prevent the sweat from occurring by plugging sweat glands.

 

Trim Hairs  

Younger men don’t tend to have problems with body hair, but in the middle years, unwanted nose hair and hair can start to appear. The best way to take care of this hair is to pluck it with tweezers the way that women pluck their eyebrows to delay the reappearance of the hairs. 

When you cut hair with a clipper, you severe the follicle, but you don’t remove it completely the way you do when you pluck it with a set of tweezers. Whether you are grooming your nose hair, ear hair, or another part of the body, tweezers are the best and cheapest way to remove hair.   

 

Beard Care 

If you have a beard, you need to use a nice beard balm, oil, or moisturizer for self-care. When you don’t care for your beard, it starts to become wiry and rough; after a time, your beard becomes unruly and might even produce some dandruff. Beard care has many benefits to offer.

Caring for your beard not only makes you look and feel better, but it also maintains a soft beard and makes you smell better in your daily life. Make beard care part of your routine self-care activities in the morning or evening, and you will notice a difference right away in how you feel.  

 

Skin Care 

All genders need to look after their skin to prevent cell damage and the signs of ageing. Over time, the skin cells break down and lose their elasticity, but you can slow the process with effective skincare such as moisturizing, exfoliating, and using sunscreen in the colder months. 

Exfoliating is the process of removing dead and damaged skin cells from the pores and surface of the skin; the best time to exfoliate is in the morning when the skin can repair itself overnight. The best time to moisturize is after a shower, and use sunscreen when wearing a cuban link      

 

Dental Care

Unless you look after your teeth regularly, they will become discoloured and damaged. Bacteria builds up on the surface of the teeth and creates plaque which can have health complications over time. Brush your teeth twice a day and visit your dentist every few months for a check-up.
