According to research, women are more effective than men in using sunscreen. This thereby reduces the chance of getting skin diseases. The stats are too dramatically big to believe around 55%men bear skin cancer. 

This was just an overview of what’s happening around us and the impact today’s environment can cause on our skin if not taken proper care of. Without any doubt, our ladies are always on top when it comes to a skincare routine, hair care or any related thing. But men are still lacking a bit. Let us check out today how important it is to wear sunscreen for chaps.

Why do I even need sunscreen?

This is the most asked question whenever you ask a guy to wear sunscreen. But it is time to answer back that it is important to protect yourselves from the harmful UV rays, which cause severe skin problems. You won’t believe it, but the sun rays entering your window can lead to skin cancer too. So now what say do you find it important? 

Maybe yes, but I have more reasons to tell you which sunburn. This is another key reason to use sunscreen while stepping out. (if still no, then suffer the red rashes of your choice).

There might be people who don’t like doing extra with their skin or face and are happy with the moisturizer. For them, I would strongly suggest choosing a moisturizer with SPF protection. They are lighter in texture and give you proper coverage. 


The tinted moisturizer from Boticoman not only deeply hydrates the skin but also contains SPF 30 sun protection. This one is from one of the trusted brands when it comes to men’s cosmetics in India. This sebum-controlling tinted sun shield doesn’t leave streaks or buildup and is perfect for Asian skin types.

I think so far you would have understood the need for sunscreen. So here comes the next frequently asked question-

When to apply sunscreen?

This is important and you must pay attention to these guys. It is not like you standing on your terrace garden and suddenly you feel like it’s much sunny here, so you picked up your sunscreen, applied and done. No, this is not correct. Or for instance, you are on the beach enjoying your sunbath and in the middle of it sunscreen flashes in your mind.  Suddenly you applied and started to think you are safe. But no man, the risk is still up.

Always keep in mind to apply a gentle amount of sunscreen 10-15 minutes before stepping into the sun. Also, not only apply on your face but on all the other body parts that are exposed to the sun. 

Do not forget to rub and massage a bit. So it gets absorbed. You may also need to re-apply every 4 hrs.

Now some of you our cool dude can pick up a question that we don’t burn. Why do we even need sunscreen?

Sunscreen, is it for brownish skin? 

It is actually an obvious question, with a valid reason that darker skin has a good ability to fight the sun rays. 

But let me put light upon the fact that you might not be getting sunburn or rashes, but the harmful rays can still affect your skin. The UVA and UVB rays can damage any kind of skin. Therefore it becomes necessary to understand the necessity of sunscreen for every skin type. The researchers and doctors have found that melanoma, a severe skin disease, in persons of dark/ brown colour, is often diagnosed at a later stage and thus commonly results in a worse prognosis.

So it is never late to go for something better. 

Fallow a sunscreen routine

I hope till now you have understood the need for sunscreen for your skin. So it is good to add this to your daily skincare routine. It is not only for the guy but also for our beautiful ladies out there, a simple reminder to not skip your sunscreen. 

It is always necessary to wear sunscreen and protect your skin while stepping out. No matter if you’re walking or driving. The more you protect and cover your skin the more it will stay healthy. Also, here I do not mention stopping the intake of your vitamin D from the sun. It is extremely important. A little conclusion is sunlight is healthy, but it does not come alone. It gives a free ride to harmful UVA and UVB rays that can damage your skin.

This was a short reminder for you of how important it is to wear sunscreen both for men and women. So don’t skip and go for it.

 List of extended tips for becoming consistent in YOGA practice.  

  1. Create Your Space: First and foremost, Yoga is a union of two opposites, whether it is male and female energy, self and environment, time, and spaces. etc. If possible, devote an extra room to your yoga practice. Keep a yoga mat unrolled all the time. However, stay flexible in creating your own space. Just look-out for the sweet spot where you can quiet your mind and gain peace. Plus, you can create some atmosphere with incense and candles. 

Although, keeping an incense stick is great but it is by no means necessary. As long as you have enough space; you are good to go. So, stay creative and practice every day no matter what. 

  1. Accessories Your Routine: To perform your yoga, all you basically need is a yoga mat. Avoid paying a fortune on a yoga mat; a good quality mat is just enough. A block and bolster are nice to have. Accessorizing your yoga routine is key to achieving better results. But, by no means is it a prerequisite. Remember, the aim is to stay consistent with practice.

  2. Safety Practice: When it comes to Yoga, there are no shortcuts. So, always stay mindful about your body, and its vulnerable areas. Some of the key areas to take care of include knees, hips, spine, and neck area. When it is a painful sensation, simply adjust and soften. Avoid going into a pose if it needs force. Do not push, warm up your body properly before attempting advanced poses. At all times, stay mindful about transition between poses.

  3. Yoga Style: The core question is “What do my body, mind, and spirit needs”. Whether you want to go for Vinyasa Flow or perhaps something more restorative. The aim is to quiet your body and mind. So, the more you practice, the more you learn and soon you will be able to recognize what your body and mind requirements are. Keep an eye on the description of each pose when going for online yoga classes. Go with the one your intuition calls for! Picking up style is as important as selecting a teacher.

  4. Regular Practice: Lastly, it is super essential to practice regularly. Although even once a week is beneficial. Unless you have specific goals to achieve, a bi-weekly Yoga program should work out best for you. Remember it is ok if you missed your practice one day, do not give up and perform your pose the next day. Aim to stay consistent in your YOGA practice. 

Wrapping Up 

One of the most common mistakes made by individuals is that they forget to enjoy practicing yoga and focus only on achieving results. Yoga is a phenomenal process, it is a journey, not a destination. So, what are you waiting for? Set your mat and get going.
