Men, you’re never too young or too old to start moisturizing. A lot of you probably think moisturizers are not for you and all you need is a shower; some deo and you’re done! Nope. Moisturizing is as integral to your skincare regimen as is showering or shaving.
Today we highlight the importance of using a moisturizer, regardless of your skin type, your age or the climate of where you live in. Read on to know more.
- Moisturizing keeps your skin young
Now you don’t want to look more than your age, do you? Well, a moisturizer keeps your skin hydrated and prevents wrinkles. As a result, your skin remains supple and doesn’t show signs of early aging.
- Flakes are a no-no!
Your skin turns dry and starts flaking when it is not hydrated enough. Regular moisturization can help fix this by giving your skin a chance to replenish the moisture it so needs.
- Paves the way for a better shave
If you are a shave-person, listen up. Shaving acts as a form of exfoliation. A face moisturizer post your shave-ritual can help create a protective barrier, and make shaving more effective and less harsh on your skin.
When to use a moisturizer?
A moisturizer is best used after a face wash, or just after you’ve stepped out of the shower. Make sure to apply a moisturizer after you wash your face in the morning.
What moisturizer should you use?
Find a moisturizer specifically formulated for men. Light water-based, oil free moisturizers are your best option. Stay away from greasy, heavy formulations since these can clog your pores and lead to acne and other skin issues.
How to apply a moisturizer?
Squeeze a coin sized amount on your palm, apply on the face in a five-dot-rule and massage it in using light, upward strokes from neck up to forehead.
We recommend using a moisturizer every single day, regardless of your skin type. #PhySuggests In the Clear Superlight Moisturizer specially formulated for oily and acne-prone skin types. Use code SUPERLIGHT10 for a 10% off!
