No matter where in the world you live, what season it is, or what skin type you have, dry skin happens. For men, skin on the face is usually thicker and more oily, so when it dries out the effects are really noticeable. Dry skin causes itching, irritation, redness, weakened defenses, and a lot of discomfort – but the good news is that you can stay hydrated with none of the hassle.
Today we’re going to look at a variety of high-quality handmade men’s moisturizers that you can seamlessly incorporate into your daily routine while getting some really great benefits.
There’s a huge list of reasons why men should be moisturizing. Here are just a few of them..
- Moisturizing helps skin feel and look better. After a week or two of daily hydrating, your skin will look younger and smoother and it will be softer to the touch.
- Staying moisturized can make shaving a lot less irritating.
- Consistent use of a high quality moisturizer or lotion can help slow the signs of aging.
- Moisturizers often help prevent sun damage to the skin which may mean a smaller risk of skin cancer.
How To Get The Most From Your Moisturizer
The best time to put on face or body lotion is within a few minutes of stepping out of a shower. Your skin gets all kinds a big drink in the shower, and you can lock in all that hydration by putting lotion on before your skin dries out completely. A gentle pat with a clean towel and a quick application of your lotion is all it takes to see and feel some pretty amazing benefits instantly.
Moisturizers can also be applied to the skin 15-30 minutes before a shave to help lubricate the skin and soften the hair.
For problem areas, lotions and moisturizers can be applied as-needed throughout the day. If you buy a large size of your favorite handmade product, you can divvy some out into a small storage container or recycled travel size lotion bottle for easy moisturization on the go.
