4 Quick Fixes for Men's Skin
Dear Men… We tend to see a lot of your significant others, and from time-to-time questions about your skin comes up. Believe it or not, occasionally washing your face with a bar of soap isn’t doing the job. So, we’ve compiled this list of the common issues we hear about and what you can do to fix it.
Oily Skin that looks ‘shiny’ and feels oily to the touch – particularly across the forehead, nose and cheekbones – is crying out for a good scrubbing with a quality product like GlyPro Exfoliating Facial Cleanser from SkinMedica. Plus you’ll get some you’ll get some great fringe benefits from the key ingredients. The Glycolic Acid will diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and the Olive Leaf Extract (a highly active antioxidant and soothing agent) will improve skin hydration without the oil.
Visible Pores and Blackheads are treated in the same way. You need to regularly scrub your skin, use a light moisturizer and keep your pores clean. If you want to go one step further Epicuren makes a great Volcanic Clay Purifying Mud Mask to help decrease oil and detoxify and purify the skin. Just remember, you can’t ‘close’ open pores permanently but clean ones are much less visible.
As for popping/extracting blackheads, it’s best to get this done professionally. Make an appointment at Werschler Aesthetics and they will remove blackheads with a special tool. Do it yourself and you risk scarring your skin or turning those blackheads into painful spots.

Redness in your face (usually in the cheeks and nose), whether you’re embarrassed or not, can be treated with Redness Relief Complex from SkinMedica.
