Gender Neutral Skincare: Our Top Tips

The words ‘Skincare’ and ‘self-care’ have always been given a feminine tone in our society, however we believe that should change. Thankfully, we are seeing the aesthetics industry change and become more inclusive, however there is still more work to do.

Skincare has no gender

Regardless of your gender, looking after your skin so that you look and feel your best is not just limited to women, which is why we want to encourage everyone to understand the importance of skincare.

Skin on your body does not see gender. It itself is an organ – the largest organ in fact! And when the rest of the body can be taken care of, then why induce a gender stigma when it comes to skin.

Skincare regardless of your gender 

As we should all be treating our skin the same here are VIVA’s top skin tips:

Wash your face twice a day with a gentle cleanser

No matter your gender everyone desires a clean and clear face. Well, this comes with the regular habit of cleansing the face with a high-quality, medical-grade skin cleanser.

Washing your face will help in keeping the skin away from impurities, dirt, and makeup residues as well as prevent the accumulation of dead skin cells on the skin surface, which subsequently prevents blemishes, and dull and aged skin. 

Feed your skin with antioxidant-enriched products

Radiant, happy and healthy skin is everyone’s right. This can be achieved by taking an extra step with a serum that is enriched with antioxidants like vitamin C. These ingredients enhance the skin texture and give you that firm, elastic, and glowing skin. 

Sunscreen, sunscreen, sunscreen!

Let’s face it, SPF is non-negotiable, no matter your gender.

Numerous scientific research studies have demonstrated that unprotected sun exposure induces premature aging of the skin.  Wearing a broad-spectrum sunscreen of SPF 50 is found to be very effective to save your skin from potential harms of UVA and UVB rays. Make sure to apply sunscreen at least 30 minutes before going outside and apply every 2 hours to ensure the levels are topped up. 

Get to know injectable treatments

Don’t be afraid of injectable treatments – dermal filler and anti-wrinkle injections can be enjoyed by everyone! Whether it’s a little ‘tweak’ here and there or a complete refresh, everyone can benefit from these treatments.
