Is your husband or boyfriend a little late to the grooming party? Have no fear, he’s not the only one. Some men simply haven’t a clue about where to start, so ladies, let’s give them a hand. Men should know that taking care of their skin is priority, while “only 63% of men aged 25 – 34 say they regularly use some kind of facial moisturizing product after shaving.” (Shaving Statistics: 23 Remarkable Facts). Skin care for men doesn’t have to be complicated; here’s the top five grooming products you can treat your guy too that will have him kiss-ably soft or groomed to perfection.
Glymed Plus MEN Essential Face Cleanser is a great every day cleanser designed to work with a man’s skin physiology. It moisturizes while cleansing and protects the skin with free radical fighting antioxidants. For men with acne-prone, or oily, skin types, try Jack Black Deep Dive Glycolic Facial Cleanser. Glycolic acid exfoliates the skin, removing build-up that clogs the pores to help reduce the appearance of blemishes and ingrown hairs.
Keeping the skin is moisturized is essential. Moisturizers contain humectants, substances that help to retain moisture, and occlusives, which help to keep water from evaporating from the skin. Moisturizers help keep skin silky which in turn creates a smoother shave and helps reduce the risk of razor burn, razor bumps and nicks and overall irritation. It also helps protect skin from sensitivity and environmental aggressors, as most moisturizers fight free radical damage. We love Yon-Ka For MEN Nutri Creme for all skin types, or try Murad MEN Face Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 15 PA+++ to add much-needed sun protection to your daily routine.
3. Eye Care
As men age, the thin and delicate skin under and around the eyes really shows it. The skin underneath the eye doesn’t contain sebaceous glands, which means no oil production, which leads to very dry skin that needs great care. Be sure that when applying eye creams and gels, you add a small amount under and around the eye and very gently tap the solution into the skin with the ring finger. Try not to pull or stretch the skin, this can lead to damage! Try Guinot Tres Homme Defatigant Express Yeux / Men’s Anti-Fatigue Eye Gel to refresh and remove all signs of fatigue, diminish the appearance of fine lines, and reduce dark circles, puffiness and under-eye shadows.
Help your guy keep his hair in tip-top, soft and full and ready for you to run your fingers through. An easy way to get great hair with minimal effort is a shampoo + conditioner combo. Jack Black Double Header Shampoo + Conditioner is a two-in-one shampoo and conditioner that cleanses and conditions hair. Hair is nourished and thickened with the help of Organic Kelp, which is full of vital minerals. This duo also soothes, giving users a comfortable, hydrated scalp. Hair is fortified for boosted shine and strength.
