Expert Advice for Men's Summer-Related Skin Problems

Summer's passed and we've been fielding a lot of questions lately regarding repairing sun-damaged skin and other seasonal problems. Here's answers from our team of MenScience experts to some commonly-asked questions:

Q: I've been noticing brown freckle-like marks on my face. Are these age spots?
A: Uneven pigmentation and so-called "age spots" (lentigines) are the result of skin's aging and sun damage. This is a common situation with men's skin, and causes it to look devitalized and damaged. Unfortunately, most men don't realize that these age spots can be significantly diminished with the right professional-grade skincare ingredients. MenScience has created a dermatological-grade formula, Pigmentation Repair Formula (with 1% Retinol), to directly correct these problems.

Q: I have dark circles under my eyes. Can I do something about this?
A: Genetics, lack of skin nutrients, pigmentation and thin skin can all play a role in causing dark under-eye areas. Eye Rescue Formula contains ingredients proven effective in combating the appearance of dark circles and helps to prevent further damage.

Q: My skin looks dull and rough. How can I revitalize it?
A: You can improve your skin tone significantly if you exfoliate regularly and keep skin hydrated. Exfoliation is the accelerated shedding of the upper, dead layers of the skin. It is highly effective at improving the skin's smoothness and tone, reducing the appearance of fine lines and revealing newer skin underneath. It is critical in the management of acne, ingrown hairs, dandruff and complications precipitated by accumulation of dead cells. Using Microfine Face Scrub up to 4 times a week can remove dead, thick surface cells, revealing new, smoother, healthier cells beneath. Follow with a moisturizer to diminish rough areas.

Q: Tanning this summer has really dried out my skin. How can I fix that?
A: Chlorinated water and strong sunlight can damage skin, turning it rough, irritated and uncomfortable. Apply moisturizer generously in the morning, before you go to bed, and throughout the day as needed. Plan on being outdoors a lot? Use a sunblock that contains hydrating ingredients like Aloe and Azulene.
