THE best face moisturisers for men accomplish three objectives: Hydrate, Protect, and Renew.
Hydrate: Aloe, Hyaluronic Acid, and Vitamin E are three of the best natural ingredients to keep a face looking hydrated. A hydrated face is important as this gives it an energized look and the more hydration your skin has, the firmer it appears. Hydrated skin cells also help give a ‘bright’ look versus a dull complexion.
Protect: Jojoba Oils create a protective glove around the skin, preventing water loss – which can quickly make it look deflated and dull. Rooibos Extract is also known for its ability to help fight free radicals, which can eat away at the skin’s condition over time.
What about SPF? If you’re going to be in the sun for over 30 minutes, apply a non-comedogenic SPF lotion and immediately wash it off once inside. SPF, while great for sun protection, is loaded with toxic chemicals that you don’t want sitting on your face all day.
Renew: A men’s face moisturiser should help fight aging. Green Tea, MSM and Aloe are three of the best natural ingredients to help prevent and reverse fine lines and wrinkles.
The best men’s face moisturizers should be lightweight and fast absorbing. Even if you have dry skin, your skin is thicker than a woman’s, so you don’t want a heavy cream that will sit on top of the skin.
