In today’s world - more and more men are embarking on a simple, yet effective skincare routine - which leaves their skin looking and feeling fantastic. As with any skincare regime, moisturiser is at the centre of the recommended skincare cycle for men.
Moisturiser is undoubtedly the most important skincare products a man can own, effectively preventing the skin from drying out (think outside work and air conditioning in offices!!) moisturisers also help fight the signs of ageing, as well as keeping skin looking bright & clear. As with anything in life, prevention is better than cure - so starting to moisturise from the earliest possible age is better than waiting around until signs of ageing and tired skin begins.
Mens moisturisers are effective because they work in two different ways - as well as adding moisture to the surface of the skin, they also help lock moisture into the skin - preventing it from escaping. This second action is particularly important, as men's skin is particularly thick. The effects of moisturisers vary depending upon activity level, but they seem to have a maximum time of use of about eight hours.
Although just applying moisturiser straight to the skin is absolutely fine, for maximum results - there are a few easy steps to take. Firstly, cleanse your face, before applying the moisturiser on damp skin. Remember not to use too much moisturiser, a little goes a long way. Rub in the moisturiser with small circular motions.
