In general, men are not fond of making a huge fuss over their everyday skin regimen.

Who could blame them? After a long day, the only thing we all look forward to is sleeping in our beds after taking a shower. Wouldn’t life be so much better if nobody felt the need to apply one product after another before going to bed?

Women are much more committed to daily skin care. From morning to bedtime rituals, women put a lot of work into it. It could be a product of vanity or the constant pressure of society to maintain a certain look at a certain age. Either way, women have a lot more devotion to taking care of their skin.

Men, on the other hand, have a difficult time maintaining a regimen even one as simple as applying sunscreen before leaving the house. It only takes a few minutes but men cannot be bothered to do such a thing.

This lack of concern for basic skin care is actually the biggest mistake guys make to their skin. No matter how limited your exposure to the sun is, using sunscreen is the best thing you can do for your skin. The sun’s UV rays are dangerous and the effects creep gradually. Among the risks of long-term sun exposure include, but are not limited to, premature skin aging and skin cancer.

Putting on a moisturizer with sunblock, even as low as SPF 15 can make a huge difference. It’s easy and simple plus you’re saving yourself from the creeping consequences of sun exposure.

Most men believe they are safe from the sun’s harmful rays when they’re just going to work. The truth is, even that short walk from your house to the subway or just sitting in your car is enough exposure to put you at risk.

Do yourself (and your skin) a favor by applying sunscreen every day!
