Putting your best face forward has never been more important than it is now that winter is reeling its ugly head. So protecting your mug from the cold should be your number one priority this season. You’ve probably never thought that moisturizing was very manly before, but think of it as taking care of your skin so that you can look great for years to come.
There are hundreds of products on the market for a good-looking man like yourself, so we here at EveryGuyed have found five of the top products for five common skin types; normal, dry, oily, combination and sensitive. We’ve got you, and your face covered – literally.
For all of you lucky gentlemen out there blessed with perfect skin, we’ve picked Lab Series Skincare for Men Daily Moisture Defense Lotion SPF 15. Packed full of antioxidants, this lightweight formula goes on smooth and is easily absorbed, delivering continuous hydration all day long.
Even though it’s winter, you’ll still want to keep your skin safe from the sun with an SPF and Lab Series has got this in mind. Not only will the Daily Moisture Defense Lotion minimize signs of aging, you’ll see a definite improvement in your skin’s overall appearance.
Available at Sephora.
Dry skin in general is irritating, but when the cold strikes, prepare for your face to undergo some serious damage if you’re not well moisturized. That’s why we like Clinique’s Maximum Hydrator.
An intense moisturizer that rehydrates and firms your skin, this anti-aging miracle drink for your face is the answer to all your dry skin prayers. By triggering your skin’s ability to build and hold moisture, you’ll hardly believe you ever had dry skin in the first place.
Another tip? Add a thin layer of Vaseline on top of your moisturized face to seal the moisture in – you’ll stay hydrated all day.
Available at Sephora.
Combat oily skin once and for all with D R Harris’s Cucumber & Roses Milk Lotion. Featuring a light lotion that practically glides on your skin, this moisturizer also packs a mild, natural antiseptic to get rid of your trouble spots.
Leaving your face fresh and clean, you can kiss your clogged pores goodbye with this miracle lotion. You should also know that if D R Harris is good enough for the Prince of Wales (they’re his official chemists), then you’re in great hands.
Available at The Gentleman’s Shop.
If you’re prone to outbreaks but have dry or normal spots as well, you’re considered a man with combination skin. Don’t worry though – you won’t have to buy two different types of moisturizer because we’ve got the solution for you with REN’s Matte Balancing Fluid.
With all the advantages of a regular moisturizer, REN’s balancing fluid also features extracts from the Mayblossom, Chamomile, Blue Cypress and Konjac root to help decongest, heal, normalise and purify your skin. Who knew that something so tiny, packs such a massive punch?
Available at Mankind.
If you’re having problems finding a moisturizer that doesn’t irritate your skin, you’re not alone. That’s why we’ve found this Celestial Moisturizer by Lush.
Though it’s true that most perfumes and added ingredients can irritate the skin, items like vanilla water and almond milk are two that do the complete opposite. That’s why Lush combined the two and put them in this moisturizer.
Helping to calm irritated skin and relive redness, this moisturizer not only smells great but your skin will look great too.
Available at Lush.
Whatever your skin type, there’s a moisturizer out there to protect you and to keep you looking your best. Look for key ingredients when buying a moisturizer that will specifically target problem areas you may have.
Maintaining a skin care regimen will not only keep your face fresh, but you’ll wonder who that good-looking guy is every time you pass a mirror.
