“Do you think it is important for men to take good care of their skin?”
January 4, 2018 11:20pm CST
Majority of women have their own beauty treatment and the day is not complete without using them. I am sure there is no low opinion about this concern to women. On the other hand, if men had beauty products applied to their skin, some people will react from earth to heaven without any second thoughts. It cannot be denied that men are too vain of themselves nowadays. ‘Is it bad for men to be self-loving?’ ‘What do you think about this concern?’ Image Credit: pixabay.com

I think everybody should take care of their physical self. I heard about a person who struggled to bring up his son - only child, and when the couple got old, the son threatened to kill parents for their retirement savings. The gentleman is pleading for euthanesia. He locks his wife when he goes out of home fearing that the son would kill her. With age, we will cease to look attractive. That will add to repulsion. So grooming to an extent is mandatory. But I don't believe it has to be with cosmetics. It has to be with healthy diet I suppose.
One of the reasons this is important is that a child might be still ok with looking after the parent, but the spouse of the child can find some of those chores repulsive. Everybody does not have the serving attitude like the nuns and priests. It is one thing to expect, and it is another thing to face reality. The least we all can do is, try to maintain good health and preferably good skin so that the person does not feel repulsed at the sight of us.
@Shavkat the think the celebrities endorse these products because it is a fact now, that not only women are vain, but men as well. i find it okay now to even see somebody using a face lotion or facial wash like James Reid. i also find it awkward still when i see a man applying lip balm because his lips are dry, like Vaness Wu of Meteor garden and even some local celebrities here. more so, i find it amusing when a lip balm has a faint color applied on a man's lip.
Everyone, I suppose, needs to have a good level of hygiene but of course, you get those who go far and beyond. I personally believe that too many products on the skin is not good for its normal flora, and will ultimately result in further skin problems. Optimum skin health also should come from within, from eating healthy food.
@Shavkat okay. is this you on your profile picture?? sunblock is indeed very important for daily use most especially if you tend to keep going out and stay under the sun using this would get you rid of hyper pigmentations and the like.
Not only for men but I think it applies to everyone. For hygiene's sake and healthy living. I haven't been so conscious about how my skin is until last year. When I checked myself in the mirror, I realized how stressed I was and somehow made me look older than my age, Oh, boy. It was then that I realized that I need to get enough sleep, drink a lot of water, exercise and eat healthy food. It;s never too late to start, right?
I think it is not too late, my friend. We can still protect our skin. It is also nice to hydrate ourselves by drinking enough water. In addition, we don't need to expose ourselves under the sun especially in the afternoon. As much as possible, we can use sunblock and lotion with SPF +20.
hmmm it depends there are men who have naturally nice skin no need to take care that much, no need to put any lotion etc. my dad when he still alive he is using a nivea cream after he took a bath, until now im using his left over because its expensive so i didnt threw it away. some of my uncles i think they dont bother to use any lotions because they are fair skinned and seems doesnt care much as far as i observed
