Skin Care For Men: Don't Use Wife's Creams

Armen Hareyan's picture

What's so different about the males of the species that skin care for men should be different from the products for women? Well, a man's skin is not the same as a woman's so you definitely shouldn't be using the same skin care products that your wife does.

Male skin is much oilier and the pores are larger too. As a general rule, ladies' brands are designed to be quickly absorbed by their thinner, finer layers. But use the same products on a man and you could be looking at clogged pores and an oily shine.

Males are generally more prone to redness and inflammation and this too can influence the sorts of lotions they should use on their bodies.

Fortunately, a good deal of research has been conducted over recent years into male facial creams and there are some exciting new developments, with extra special ingredients now included to cater just for male needs.

First of all, there's CynergyTK™. This ingredient inhibits Prostaglandin E2, the major biochemical pathway leading to inflammation and redness.

Then there's phytessence wakame, an extract from a Japanese sea kelp. This substance inhibits a harmful enzyme called hyaluronidase, which breaks down hyaluronic acid. This acid is important for tissue repair, and a reduction in it can lead to wrinkles and sagging.

Last but not least, there's Nano-Lipobelle H EQ10. This is a bit of a mouthful but it's actually CoEnzyme Q10 in a nano-emulsion form. This can penetrate through several layers and absorb free radicals, resulting in fewer wrinkles and greatly improved smoothness.

These are just some of the exciting new ingredients being used in the best natural skin care products for men. So there's no need to put up with dry, red, aging faces any more!

Ideally, you'll want to find brands that include all these ingredients and more to keep your face looking as young as possible or to reverse the aging effects of outdoor activities.

This won't always be easy as many of the big name manufacturers haven't started using these substances yet. But there are some companies specializing in natural products who offer competitively priced, cutting-edge creams and lotions specially designed for men. Skin care technology is no longer reserved only for ladies' brands!
