Men’s body care products are far widely accepted nowadays than ever before. Serums, moisturisers, cleansers and even toners are all now regarded as standard fare in men’s bathrooms.
Because men generally have thicker skin, they have traditionally eschewed general skin care regimen. However, it is still skin, producing sebum, collecting dirt and slowly ageing, and like women, you need to look after it.
Here, with the help of some tips from Greatist, we pick out the best products for men’s body care
Shampoo, like Dr. Spiller Manage Your Skin Energizing Body & Hair Shampoo, is an incredible product that invigorates and gently purifies skin and scalp. It instantly cleanses and purifies while its effective, non-aggressive foaming system is gentle to the hair fibre and the skin’s physiological balance. It is the ideal partner for use when travelling or after exercising.
Ever notice that the skin on your jawline always has its act together? That’s because the process of shaving is a great exfoliant, which is crucial to keeping your skin healthy and acne-free.
To help the rest of your body get in on the action, exfoliate two to three times a week. If you’re oily, try a scrub like Thalgo Polynesia Exotic Island Body Scrub – Gommage Delicieux.
The case for wearing sunscreen (yep, even in the winter) is pretty much irrefutable at this point. If you need some extra convincing, compate your face to your car dashboard: If you expose it every day to sun, after a while it will get dull, fade, and crack. No one wants that to happen to their face. Apply a moisturizer with SPF every morning to keep skin hydrated and protected—it may seem like an extra step, but with skin cancer being what it is, it’s more necessary than you think.
Trying to erase past sins? If you really want to go for it, a retinoid at night is the gold standard, helping to reverse sun damage, stimulate collagen, exfoliate, open pores, and fight pimples. Look for a prescription or over-the-counter kind—just make sure retinol is in the top four ingredients listed.
