Moisturiser isn’t just for the female of the species, and thankfully, in this day and age, there are plenty of top-notch formulations designed with the masculine male in mind.
Not only will they leave your street cred fully intact when sitting on your bathroom shelf, but they also smell great and are packed with ingredients which cater specifically for your needs. In case you hadn’t noticed, men’s skin possesses several different characteristics to that of, say, your girlfriend. It’s thicker, coarser and definitely oilier, and with the added irritation of daily shaving to contend with, moisturisers aimed specifically at men are much more than just a clever marketing ploy.
Moisturising is of the utmost importance – neglecting to include this vital step in your daily routine puts your skin in danger of becoming extremely dehydrated. The result? Premature aging, and believe it or not, nasty breakouts too.
if you thought that oily skin was a result of excess moisture, then you thought wrong. Your skin needs quenching just as much as much as anybody else’s.
When selecting your moisturiser, look for ingredients such as glycerin and hyaluronic acid, both of which are effective at retaining moisture. Taking into consideration your daily shave, it’s also worth looking out for cooling or calming ingredients to ensure that skin remains comfortable and free of irritation.
Moisturiser should be applied twice-daily after washing the face. If you don’t wash yours that often then shame on you! Time to start, sharpish.
A ten-pence sized amount should suffice, but it’s best to apply bit by bit so as not to overload the skin. Dot over the forehead, nose, cheeks and chin, massaging in gently until thoroughly absorbed. You don’t want any shiny residue, so if it gets to that point then you know you’ve gone too far!
The Bluebeards Revenge contains balancing jojoba oil, along with prickly pear, stinging nettle and fenugreek – not as nasty as they sound, as all boast fantastic moisturising qualities and have the ability to reinvigorate the skin. so get yours now – time to man up and moisturise!
