The best products for Asian men’s skin
Everyone's skin is different. It's as unique as your thumbprint. With all the varied skin treatments available to market, there's absolutely something available that caters to your specific needs. It can just be a little tricky finding the right fit. We can help you there.
Beyond all the hands-across-the-water loveliness, the fact of the matter is that Asian men’s skin is different from Caucasian men’s skin, which is different from African men’s skin.
On the plus side, Asian men’s skin is way more resistant to ageing. That’s why you see Korean dudes who look 25 but are actually 40. Look no further than Fast & Furious alum Sung Kang. We bet he still gets asked for his ID at bars.
That said, Asian men’s skin is more prone to hyperpigmentation and hypersensitivity (no) thanks to a thinner outermost layer of dermis. There are also issues around greater oil production.
Some simple customising tweaks will help set you right.
First up, ease back on the alpha hydroxy acids and beta hydroxy acids. They are fine in one product of your routine but in two or more, you’re encouraging skin sensitivity and a counter production of oil you don’t need.
Asian men’s skin also has increased levels of melanin, a substance that can lead to hyperpigmentation with prolonged sun exposure.
You know what we’re going to say. Slather on that sunscreen daily and if nothing else works on hyperpigmentation, check out a laser treatment like Picosure.
In terms of what specific ranges to try, look to the immaculately groomed men of Korea – a nation that has redefined the global market.
