Skin care is as much a priority for men with a dark skin as it is for men with a fair skin. Caring for the skin means proper and thorough cleansing and applying moisturizers. Too much exposure to water or regular contact with soaps is more likely to make the skin dry. They have the potential to push out essential oils from the skin.
To avoid dehydration and excess oil flowing from the body, it is recommended to use lukewarm water to take a bath. The time spent in the bath or while you remain in contact with water should be limited to just 15 minutes a day.
Always opt for a mild soap to wash your body and face. This is going to result in a retention of oils in the oil-glands. You should use deodorant soaps for the ideal care of your skin. In case you have a dry skin, it is advised to use a mild soap for application over the whole of the body except the genitals, feet and the underarms.
Men with a dry skin should pat their skin after a bath to ensure moisture is absorbed in the body. Take the opportunity to use some moisturizer on your skin while it is still damp. This way, the moisture content is not likely to be lost.
You should take great care while you wield the shaving razor on your face. The razor should not be moved in the direction opposite to the direction in which the hair grows. Clippers can be use to avoid razor bumps.
