Focus on Skincare this Men’s Health Month

Attractive man undergoing cosmetic treatment

Did you know that June is Men’s Health Month? It’s a nationwide initiative designed to raise awareness of common preventable health problems that America’s men and boys face. And a few of those issues begin with your skin. Metropolitan Dermatology offers these tips for protecting your skin’s health and putting your best face forward.

  • Be sun-smart: Each year, some 47,000 men in the United States are diagnosed with melanoma. Upward of 6,750 of them will die. Minimize your exposure to the sun and, when you do venture out, don protective clothing, caps and sunglasses and wear a high-SPF sunscreen daily. Also, schedule regular skin cancer screenings and keep an eye out for skin spots with irregular borders, asymmetrical shapes or changing shapes and colors – all potential indicators of melanoma.
  • Take a proactive approach to anti-aging: Men increasingly are opting for cosmetic procedures once nearly exclusively the domain of women. These include chemical peels, microdermabrasion, IPL Photofacials, Botox injections and dermal fillers. In fact, according to the latest statistics, more than 385,000 Botox procedures are administered to male patients each year.
  • Adopt a routine: Ditch the ultimately drying bar of soap, opting instead for top-shelf skincare products tailored specifically for the unique needs of men’s skin. Choose a regimen that includes a cleanser, toner and moisturizer.
