Most men tend to skip skin products all together. Call it taboo, low maintenance, you name it, most men don’t like to put something on their skin.
However, men would benefit greatly if they added moisturizer to their grooming routine. A good moisturizer will not only make the face look younger and fresher, it will help to keep those wrinkles at bay.
Moisturizer can help even out your skin tone and even out those red areas. Of course it goes without saying that a moisturizer will help with flaky skin.
Choosing a Moisturizer
When deciding what moisturizer to buy, you can look for several things. If you know that you have a sensitive skin, look for a moisturizer that is hypoallergenic (in other words suitable for sensitive skin). If you have an oily skin, look for a light, oil-free moisturizer.
Always test out the moisturizer to make sure it is easily absorbed. Everyone hates the feeling of knowing that something is on their skin. If you’re out in the sun a lot, consider getting a moisturizer that also has a sun protection factor (SPF).
Finally, if you feel that a moisturizer is something that is too much maintenance, then at least get an after-shave lotion that is also a moisturizer.
