9 üble Fehler bei Hautpflege: Was Männer am Gesicht falsch machen

9 evil mistakes in skin care: what men do wrong on the face

Have a sticky note and pen ready for a tally list: We have collected nine typical skin care mistakes that are sure to make many men! Nobody will finish reading here with zero lines.

1. In the evening without bed cream

The skin care mistake

After a hard day, you just throw yourself in the feathers and fall asleep.

Why this is a problem for your skin

You risk new wrinkles if the face continues to stick to your face all day - including dirt, bacteria and free radicals. For your face, this means that the stresses of the day continue at night: your skin leaches out and free radicals weaken your tissue. In the long run you get new wrinkles due to this skin care mistake.

What you should do for your skin instead

Treat yourself to a facial cleansing in the evening: use a suitable facial cleanser for your stressed skin and top it off with your moisturizer for men . If you use the right care products, you will cleanse your skin intensively and give it what it needs: important nutrients and moisture so that it is prepared for wrinkles.

2. Skin creams with vitamin A

The skin care mistake

As a small miracle cure, care products sell vitamin A - also known as retinol - in their creams. The effect: it renews the upper layer of skin and is supposed to smooth the skin. It should also help against pimples and acne.

Why this is a problem for your skin

Our bodies produce vitamin A relatively easily themselves, which means that we can overdose on vitamin A with prepared creams. Too much vitamin A leads to side effects on the skin: it becomes dry and rough, lips break open more easily and the hair becomes thinner. Headaches, dizziness, tiredness and vomiting are also possible.

What you should do for your skin instead

Make sure that care products contain vitamin C : this candidate deserves the title miracle cure! Vitamin C fights free radicals, thus counteracts wrinkles and also fights pimples.

3. Eternity in the hot shower

The skin care mistake

A long hot shower feels great, but your skin suffers.

Why this is a problem for your skin

There is a (in a double sense) fine film on your skin, which consists of fats, sebum and bacteria, among other things. This film protects your skin from external dangers, but also from internal dehydration. If you take a long hot shower and use an excessive amount of soap (or the wrong one), you wash this body's protective shield off yourself. The result: your skin dries out and is more exposed to external dangers. This leads to inflammation, skin diseases and wrinkles.

What you should do for your skin instead

Set the water to lukewarm and not yourself. Use the water sparingly in the shower: get wet, turn off the water, do not foam yourself with aggressive but rather with surfactant-free soap and wash off thoroughly at the end. Finished. In this way, you do little damage to your skin.

4. Dry incorrectly after showering

The skin care mistake

After the shower, you want to make sure that you dry yourself properly. So you rub yourself intensively dry with your towel.

Why this is a problem for your skin

This is also about your body's protective barrier: with your towel, you rub it off your skin and provide a basis for free radicals, inflammation and wrinkles.

What you should do for your skin instead

Use a towel, but dab yourself with it. That is enough.

5. Use the next best face care

The skin care mistake

Because it's comfortable, you say: Soap is enough for your face and your friend's face cream does the same.

Why this is a problem for your skin

In case of doubt, your skin is sensitive and accordingly you are more likely to damage the wrong care product than do it good: you don't know how aggressive the product is, and neither do you know whether it even contains dubious ingredients . In addition, you do not have to count on effective care if you rely on cosmetics for women instead of care products for men.

What you should do for your skin instead

Take skin creams and cleansers that are designed for men and inform yourself thoroughly before you let any product on your skin. We are big fans of Codecheck : Here you scan your care product via app and find out immediately whether it contains questionable ingredients.

6. Shave like a beginner

The skin care mistake

It has to be quick, so you take the old razor with the three blades and run it quickly over your face. Finished.

Why this is a problem for your skin

Congratulations on the new razor burn. In addition to the many small, unappetizing pimples, you have also added skin damage to the blunt blades, which will cause dryness and ignite.

What you should do for your skin instead

Shave with enough time in your luggage and proceed as follows: Soak your face with a damp cloth and then use shaving foam or soap. Take a safety razor with super sharp blades and drive it lightly and with growth over the skin. At the end you wash off the soap residue and use a mild, nourishing aftershave . These are the minimum requirements for a proper shave .

7. Squeeze pimples and blackheads

The skin care mistake

You see a new pimple and quickly squeeze it out before it gets bigger.

Why this is a problem for your skin

The pimple gets bigger. Blemishes like pimples and blackheads cause new inflammation on the face. So if you mess around with dirty fingers, you only make the problem worse and even spread it further.

What you should do for your skin instead

You should only remove pimples and blackheads under strict conditions and ideally with professional help. However, it is much better if pimples and blackheads do not arise at all. Therefore, take a look at how to take care of blackheads and pimples .

8. Without sun protection in front of the door

The skin care mistake

The sun is shining: time to tan!

Why this is a problem for your skin

You haven't applied sunscreen? Then you have a good chance of sunburn, leathery skin, wrinkles and, in the worst case, skin cancer. This is ensured by the UV rays, which penetrate deep into the skin, generate free radicals and can damage your genetic makeup.

What you should do for your skin instead

Avoid UV radiation on your skin as much as possible, because it is the most effective protection against sunburn and wrinkles. However, you don't want to spoil the game: Apply plenty of sunscreen with UV protection when you are in the sun. After the sun, you should definitely apply a moisturizing face cream for men to hydrate your skin.

9. The same bed every night  

The skin care mistake

You wash your bedding every few months.

Why this is a problem for your skin

Let's list what accumulates on a pillow: mites, feces from mites, sweat, bacteria, dirt from every single day, sebum particles, dust, dandruff, saliva ... All of this is on your pillow and is waiting for your sleeping pores clog. It's no surprise that you wake up with pimples the next day.

What you should do for your skin instead

Cover your bed regularly fresh: every 6 weeks you should wash your bed linen to 60 degrees and your pillow twice a year. This kills pathogenic bacteria and has a clean sleep.

Caught?

And how many of the mistakes have you made in the past? Honestly: we are not perfect either and have touched our own nose with some mistakes (with clean fingers, of course). The good news is that we can do better every day. If you see it that way, you will have something of your young skin longer. #staysober
