Okay guys, this one’s for you so pay attention!
If we were to ask 100 of you and your mates if you used any form of moisturizing cream on your face or skin, our feeling is that the answers would roughly fall into three groups:
- the yes camp
- the no camp
- those who are too embarrassed to say that they do, in case their mates find out!
Would you agree?
Thankfully times are a-changing as we think there is enough evidence around now to suggest that guys need to moisturize their skin just as much as girls do. Afterall, who wants to reach their later years with leathery skin that is dried out, wrinkled and flaky? While we can’t and won’t guarantee that any moisturizing cream is going to make you look 20 years younger, we believe it does help us and and are happy to encourage others to do try it for themselves.
But where do you start looking for a good men’s moisturiser?
Some items on the supermarket health and beauty shelves would unfortunately appear to have little worthwhile benefits for guys or girls, while others contain so many chemicals that you would be silly to put it anywhere near your skin. So it does require you to be discerning when buying a good-quality moisturizer.
Check the ingredients, google the names you find, check out what all those strange-sounding additives actually do (if anything), and ask your friends. Buy a brand which you believe is the best for you and your particular skin type. And if you have a particular medical condition that affects your skin, talk to your health professional for their recommendations.
From a personal perspective we think ALL guys should use a daily moisturizer, and be encouraged by their partners to see it as much an essential part of their daily routine as shaving and brushing their hair. And not just on the face guys! Remember to add a dab to your elbows, knees, feet and hands.
Aging happens to us all guys, but wouldn’t you rather start doing something now to keep your skin as healthy as you can, no matter your age? Let’s all reach those later years looking and feeling our very best!
