Although people like to think that when it comes to anti aging, support skin care is available in a bottle and will provide them with youthful skin and no wrinkles, this is not entirely true. Over the years as people age, wrinkles, scars, and more, are just part of the natural aging process but this has people looking for anti aging support. Skin care is no longer just for women and nowadays, more men than ever are concerned about their skin and keeping it hydrated and younger looking. Choosing a men’s facial cleanser as part of an anti aging support skin care program can seem confusing but always use products designed for men only because men and women have very different skin and needs. First, find out what your skin type is and choose a facial cleanser geared to your skin, whether it is normal, dry, oily, a combination, or for acne. Try to find anti aging support skin care products that contain natural ingredients because chemicals often cause skin problems and irritate the skin.

Anti aging support skin care, shaving products and tips for men help them understand the importance of some shaving basics such as using an aftershave or other soothing product after shaving, but one that contains no menthol or alcohol. Before you shave, use a men’s facial scrub or cleanser to make shaving easier by raising the hairs and always use shaving cream or lubricant. To get a smooth shave use a sharp blade, shave in the direction of the hair taking long downward strokes and not against the hair direction. Some men find that a good anti aging support skin care shaving tip is to do their shaving in a warm shower, which expands their skin and opens their pores.

Keeping your skin hydrated is such an important part of anti aging support skin care, especially in the wintertime when people’s skin becomes dull and dry. To keep your skin feeling and looking great always drink from eight to ten glasses of water daily because your skin, like all your other body organs, requires water. Turn your thermostat back at night, have a humidifier installed to put moisture back into the air, use a moisturizer on your body paying special attention to your heels, elbows, hands, and face, and follow the ten-minute rule, which is putting moisturizer on within ten minutes of finishing your shower. Exfoliating your skin is also a very important part of any anti aging support skin care program. It leaves your face feeling softer and removes dead skin cells so it looks younger and healthier.

I do believe that the latest reports show that it is not necessary to drink 8 glasses of water a day for skin hydration. I know this has been the theory for a long time now but I have read in several places that researchers have decided that this is not accurate.

Nutritional beliefs go in and out of style. One of the most tenacious is the fixation on drinking large quantities of water.


In the 1980s, someone suggested that people should drink eight large glasses of water, 8 ounces each, every day. The idea stuck, and 8 x 8 became household shtick with nutritionists and around much of North America. My patients frequently boasted that water consumption was the main reason for their good health.


What was the appeal of eight glasses of water, 8 ounces each, per day? Was it a feng shui thing? Was it that water is the ultimate in "natural"? More likely, it was that most of us just like to believe in things that sound good.


What does drinking eight glasses of water per day do, besides ensure a certain familiarity with the nearest bathroom?


I've witnessed significant problems. One patient drank lots of water to flush out impurities. Unfortunately, he also had Crohn's disease, an intestinal illness in which nutrients don't get absorbed well. He lost serious weight and became progressively weaker until finally his astute doctor discovered the water jag and advised drinking liquids with calories and nutrients.


Another patient with kidney stones started drinking large quantities of water as prevention. One week after consuming 2 liters of water every day (about eight glasses, 8 ounces each), he developed severe fatigue and weakness. Blood tests showed dangerously low sodium levels.


The eight-glasses-per-day mantra, it turns out, is a misinterpretation of normal physiological requirements. Daily fluid loss in adults is about 2 liters. The loss comes from sweating, breathing and excretion of waste by kidneys and bowels. The most important concept is replacement, not flushing impurities. Normal eating and drinking should suffice since water is a major ingredient in not only beverages but also nearly all foods -- fruit, meat, dairy, breads, everything except dried foods. Concerning healthy skin, drinking swimming pools of water does not help at all. If your kidneys are healthy, extra water does not end up in skin: You excrete it.

Divide your body weight in half, and that's how many ounces you should drink daily. It's a lasting standard.

Check into electrolite drops to supplement your water. True cellular hydration in the key! Most water is "dead" and runs right thru our body.

Wow.. that is WAY too much water. The 8x8 has been disproved and I would say its probably pretty dangerous to drink half your body weight in ounces of water everyday. Water doesn't just run right through your body, it passes through numerous systems, and dissolves almost every type of vitamin you have. People have died from consuming too much water. of course to be fair electrolite drops would greatly decrease this risk, i have to wonder.. what's the point? That much water isn't doing anything good for your skin.

A healthy, well-balanced diet goes such a long way in keeping your skin youthful. Just eat like a normal person, everything in moderation.

Unfortunately many men don't use skin care products as much as women , however I believe that most skin care products can be used equally by men and women.
