Alright ladies, it’s time to talk about beauty for your man. If you’re like me, you probably take the time to take care of your beauty routine. I’ve noticed that my boyfriend (and even my guy roommates) don’t take the same time out of their days to work on their own skin care routines. It’s time we show our guys the light and introduce them to some guy friendly beauty products.
Keep reading for tips on what you should know when it comes to beauty for your man and recommendations for products he’s guaranteed to love.
Just like us, men need products that will suit their skin types. When it comes to cleansing, it’s best to go for natural ingredients that won’t irritate the skin. If you’re trying to get in a good clean, then why not start with clean ingredients, right? (But first, learn the difference between clean, natural and organic beauty products and how it can affect your skin.)
HERE’S A CLEANSER WE RECOMMEND:
Rugged & Dapper: Daily Power Scrub Mens Facial Cleanser
This multipurpose, daily scrub is suitable for all skin types and made with all natural and organic ingredients. With just one single product, your man will be cleansing, toning and exfoliating all at once!
I get it… Some men like to be a masculine and embrace the “rugged” look. But that doesn’t mean they should skip out on moisturizing! Moisturizing daily with simple ingredients is enough to improve elasticity on the face and provides hydration to keep the skin healthy. A simple moisturizer with SPF could go a long way when used daily. We, women, know that a good SPF moisturizer will protect our skin from sun damage that causes early signs of aging, so why not pass on that wisdom?
HERE’S A FEW MOISTURIZERS WE RECOMMEND:
Kiehl’s: Facial Fuel SPF 20
This men’s moisturizer provides antioxidant protection, formulated with broad-spectrum protection against UVA and UVB rays. It’s infused with vitamin C, vitamin E, chestnut extract and caffeine to encourage healthier skin.
We can’t deny that there’s something attractive about a man in a face mask. Honestly, how fun does a “his and her mask night” sound?! Face masks have endless benefits from tightening and firming the skin to hydrating and diminishing the appearance of pores and wrinkles.
When it comes to your man’s beauty care, it’s important to focus on preventing dullness of the skin. To encourage brightening, look for face masks that lift dirt, oil and toxins.
HERE ARE SOME MASKS WE RECOMMEND:
Dermalogica: Skin Hydrating Masque
This mask refreshes stressed, dehydrated skin and restores suppleness with a soothing and oil-free gel formula.
