The Ultimate Skin Care For Men

Aug 14, 2008
The first time I suspected my boyfriend of it, I quickly dismissed the thought as ridiculous, but then I actually caught him in the act! One night just before bed I noticed the bathroom light on and went to shut it off, only to find my boyfriend standing in front of the mirror applying my expensive eye firming lotion. It was all I could do not to laugh but instead I quietly returned to bed and never let on as to what I had just seen. Knowing my man cared about his skin may have seemed strange at first, but in reality, it made perfect sense. Skin care for men may not be at the top of their priority list, but believe me, it does make the list at some level why would not they care about it, and I know I do! Skin care for men is a growing industry many name brand companies known for creating beauty products for women are now getting in on...healthy skin is the latest trend.

Men's skin care use to mean aftershave and hand salve for dry hands but today there are whole lines of products designed to soothe, rejuvenate, moisturize, and protect men's skin. While your man may not admit to you that he worries about the appearance of his skin, most men today are making an effort to reduce signs of aging such as wrinkles and age spots. In all the ways us women worry, so do men, they just are not as open about discussing it as we do. I do not foresee men discussing the newest eye creams available while drinking beer at the pub, but even if they do not discuss it, we know they are thinking about it.

Men and women's skin is not the same; therefore, skin care for men requires products designed specifically to meet their needs. Inflammation and redness on the facial area are problems men face as a result of daily shaving, which women don't. In addition, like women men have varied skin types that can be dry, oily, combination, acne-prone, sensitive, or normal. Each skin type requires special treatment. Finding a product which uses only all-natural ingredients, which is fragrant free, SPF free and does not contain ingredients which have the potential to be allergens or irritants is important to assuring your products will do the job they were designed to do without causing you additional problems.

Like any health or beauty product on the market, you have to be weary of its contents. Many products contain preservatives, fillers or low-cost alternative ingredients, which producers claim, will offer the same results as the more expensive products but at a lower cost, this just is not true. High quality ingredients create noticeable results you will not get from generic products full of preservatives and fillers. Even name brand companies you are familiar with often use ingredients that are ineffective, useless or even damaging to your skin. What your skin needs is all-natural products that will heal and protect your skin from the normal irritants and toxins we encounter every day. Cost, effectiveness and safety are all aspects you should identify before trying any skin care product.

Everything you put onto your skin eventually makes its way into your bloodstream; therefore, it is just as important to know what it is you are putting on your skin as to what you are ingesting. Having a skin care product for men, that is safe enough to eat, guarantees they are free of contaminants you do not want in your bloodstream. It may sound odd, but think about it, it really makes sense! In addition, we all know men will eat just about anything.

You know the men in your life care about their appearance, their clothing, their hair line, going grey, but just like us women, men also care about fighting off signs of aging which can reveal their true age, or worse, make them look even older.

Men skin care is no longer a taboo idea like it once was. So maybe your manly-man is not ready to admit how much he enjoys having smooth, firm skin, his desire to avoid wrinkles, puffiness or dark circles under his eyes; but just like us women, men are also worried about their appearance and want to try to keep their healthy, youthful appearance.

Men's skin care products, which are specifically created with the needs of men, not women in mind, can give your man the edge he is looking for to stay looking good, for you and for himself. So do your man a favor and get him the products you know he wants, but is not willing to admit to yet. Because we all know... when you look good, you feel good.
