From a man's perspective, the number one skin care problem would be ingrown hairs as a result of shaving. When guys shave, they scrape their face with a very sharp metal object. This could be an electric or a manual blade razor. The razor cuts each whisker, leaving a sharp, and often angled, end. Facial hair is much coarser than the hair on the rest of your body; as a result it has a tendency to curl just a bit.
When you cut each hair during your daily shave, the razor leaves a very sharp end to each whisker hair. When this hair grows just a little bit, it tends to curl on itself, pierces the skin and embeds itself into your skin. This results in razor bumps, and some of them will end up inflamed and infected. How do you take care of this? Try the following suggestions:
· First, when you shave, I recommend a manual razor with a single blade. The double and triple blades promise to give you a very close shave. This sounds good, but the closer you shave, the more likely you are to have those hairs curling below the surface of your skin resulting in razor bumps and infected hairs.
· Secondly, shave in the shower. By having your face very wet, you minimize the likelihood of developing razor burn from too much friction.
· Use a good lubricating shave cream or gel. Trial and error is my suggestion here. No single product works for every person.
· After shaving, make sure you moisturize your face. No, you don't have to use the perfumed products of your sweetheart. There are very good men's products out there. Find one you like and use it. EVERY DAY!
· Lastly, when you shave, shave in the direction your hair grows. When you shave against the direction of your hair growth, you may get a closer shave, but you will increase the likelihood of developing ingrown hairs.

Almost any product will improve the condition of your skin. With the exception of acne, most bad skin conditions are the result of neglect. Too much sun, wind, water without doing any repair will leave skin rough, dry, dull, red, irritated, and feeling tight. Simply paying attention to what your skin needs will result in a clear improvement.
Rather than paying attention to the ads on television and in magazines, try products for yourself. Not every product works the same way on every person, so take advantage of those free samples. When you find one that feels really good, stick with it and use it as directed.
Some of these product lines suggest that you use a cleanser, toner, eye cream, daytime face cream, and nighttime face cream. If you find a product that works well with your skin, the companion products will likely work well for you too because they are made from similar base products. If you need eye cream, use it. If you're pretty young, you can get away without it.
Remember, anything that you use on a daily basis is going to do more good for you than something that you will resist using.View Thread
I worked in a nursing home, for twenty plus years and I've seen many different skin problems. The thing we always used is mineral oil. Put it in your favorite lotion, just after your bath, while your skin is still wet. Then towel dry.
This works anytime, just be sure to wear socks or wipe your skin off, so you don't slip. Mineral oil is cheap and very affective and it's already in most lotion's. Use about 1/4 of your lotion, from the bottle and replace it with mineral oil and shake. After a couple, of times, your skin will be so soft and feel great!
If your skin is oozing I suggest just using the mineral oil, but it will be thin. Just prick a little hole in the foil with a needle, so you can control how much comes out, of the bottle. Make the hole bigger, if you need too.View Thread
I had this problem also my doctor said it was sensitive skin, It started during menopause as if it was hormonal. It seem to be a moisture problem I also tryed just about every thing. I now use Olay Ultra Moisture soap (yellow and white pack) and Malibu hemp moisturizer . Use the hemp for a week and bath daily with this soap. This worked for me I do not break out any more.View Thread
Spring is a good time to remind you that taking good care of your skin now helps prevent aging and disease like skin cancer. Tip #1 is to limit your sun exposure.
Sun exposure is responsible for a multitude of skin problems from age spots to skin cancer.
Unprotected skin suffers greatly from the UV rays of the sun, promoting premature aging of the skin and wrinkle production. A single bad sunburn in your youth greatly increases your chances of developing skin cancer decades later.
Wear a hat and sunglasses and be sure to use sunscreen on all your exposed skin, especially your face.
Ladies, that SPF 8 make-up you're wearing is not protecting your face enough from the sun. It helps, but it isn't enough.
Remember to protect your face from the rays of the sun throughout the day. Reapplying sunscreen as needed and wearing a wide-brimmed hat will help keep your skin fresh, young, and disease free.
Feel free to share your ideas on how you protect your skin from the sun. How do you protect your children?
