5 Best Men’s Moisturisers For Incredible Skin
From Chanel and Tom Ford to Kiehl’s and Aesop, post-workout primed to anti-blemish treatments, our comprehensive guide to the best men’s moisturisers has every base covered.
And if only the latest moisturisers will do, check out our list of the best new grooming items this week.
What is moisturiser and why do I need it?
A moisturiser should be the first tool in your arsenal for avoiding dry and tired skin. When combined with a good face wash it helps to rehydrate your skin’s outer layers so you look your best around the clock. This is especially the case when it comes to your face as it’s more exposed to the elements than any other part of your body. Need some more motivation to lather your face every morning? Moisturisers that contain SPF help to protect your face from sun damage and related skin cancer risk.
What time of day should I use moisturiser?
We recommend using these moisturisers twice a day, in the morning and the evening. A daily routine would be to wash your face with a mild cleanser and follow this with one of our picks below. However, this can differ depending on product, skin-type, time of year and even environment. Since your skin hydration needs will vary according to the weather, you’ll want to tailor the contents of your wash bag to the seasons.
What moisturiser is best for tattoo aftercare?
Careful, this is a common misconception. Bepanthen, which is an ointment rather than a moisturiser, is the recommended product for tattoo aftercare and you’ll want to apply it every three to six hours for around a fortnight after you’ve been inked. So as much as these moisturisers will revitalise your mug, they’re no good for keeping your tats in tip top shape.
What other grooming products work best with a moisturiser?
To each man his own, but we’d recommend pairing your moisturiser with a good men’s face wash at the very least. Then have a think about mixing an exfoliator into the process that’ll diminish dirt and get shot of dead skin cells and an eye serum to target more delicate skin in this area. And if you’re in need of a more intensive refresh? Then, as a special treat for getting your skincare regime in order, try slapping on a face mask.
