In the past, men thought of shaving or getting a haircut as nothing more than a routine. They wanted it as quickly as possible and used to give less attention to its details. They used to believe that health and beauty care is for women only. Today, that perception has changed up to some extent. Men are spending money to get better skin and hair to look more presentable. As demand is directly proportional to the supply, we saw a noticeable growth in men’s hair and skincare products.
Men’s Skin Care Trends
Men never cared how sunrays were damaging their skin. Some of them still don’t. For them, the rough and tough look is more masculine. A man with rough and dark skin is considered more man type. That’s a wrong perception.
Men usually have oily skin which makes it more open to acne, pimples and other skin problems. Men equally need to take care of their skin and themselves as a whole as in our patriarchal society, most of the duties are on their shoulders. As the time is changing, with the changing trends men are also learning to take care of their skin and health overall.
Many brands have now introduced only-for-men skin and hair care products which are attracting a considerable population of men proving that the time is changing.
