Aging skin is just as much of a factor for men as it is for women. Men who are seeing changes in their skin as they hit their 40s, 50s, and beyond are often looking for a simple solution to reverse these signs of age and effectively stop time in its tracks.
Age causes a loss of volume in the face and results in the face lengthening. This includes sagging features and underlying tissues. All of these changes require surgery to correct, as no skincare routine has the ability to reverse these effects.
However, even if you have a facelift or other successful plastic surgery procedure, a proper skincare routine is required to achieve a youthful, fresh skin tone. Every individual has control over the changes in their skin. With a good skincare routine, the effects of age can be significantly slowed down and even reversed in some cases.
Plastic surgery can’t achieve healthy, youthful-looking skin
While nothing but a surgical procedure can address sagging skin, facial lengthening, and volume loss, the skin itself doesn’t respond to surgery. The skin is completely separate–it’s an individual choice in terms of how they care for it, how consistent they are, and how they nourish it.

Skincare Tips for Men
Fresh, appealing, youthful-looking skin requires two things: a healthy lifestyle and a consistent, proper skincare routine.
When it comes to turning back the clock on aging skin, what lifestyle factors are the most important? The answer is proper diet and nutrition, adequate hydration, and minimal sun exposure.
Diet and nutrition
Processed foods and other toxins, such as smoking or alcohol, age the skin and cause dullness, wrinkles, and other unwanted changes. With proper nutrition, including leafy greens and berries, clean proteins, vitamins and supplements, and a balanced diet, your skin reflects your health. The result is brighter, fresher, healthier skin that makes you look younger.
Dehydrated skin looks flaccid, flat, and wrinkled. Eight glasses of water daily, about two liters, results in plumper, more supple skin. Include electrolytes, as these help your skin absorb the fluids you drink.
Minimal sun exposure
Besides smoking, sun exposure is the number one factor when it comes to aging and damaging the skin. Avoiding sun exposure pauses and slows the aging process, keeping your skin smooth, fresh, and youthful for years.
A proper skincare routine
Ensuring you have a healthy lifestyle is critical when it comes to achieving youthful skin, but a consistent, proper skincare routine is just as vital for men. A skincare routine with all the right ingredients gets to the root of aging and addresses it at the cellular level. You’ll need products with these key ingredients applied to your skin on a regular basis:
- Growth factors
- Vitamin C
- Non-hydroquinone lighteners
- Hyaluronic acid serum and lipids
A good skincare routine doesn’t have to be complicated
If you’re like most men and women who have tried to find the right skincare products, but you’re overwhelmed with the number of cleansers, brighteners, creams, serums, and everything else on the market, I created a solution designed for you–the KaramMD Trifecta.
Once I realized how complicated the world of skincare products is, I knew my patients needed something simple and easy. Few people out there want to deal with a super complex skincare routine every day. I spent over a decade looking for the right products that were simple enough to make consistency easy. When I didn’t find it, I created the KaramMD Trifecta. It includes only three products–three easy steps: cleansing, vitamin C, and an all-in-one–and it has every key ingredient you need to keep your skin youthful and healthy for many years to come.
