Hydrating Face Care For Men
The importance of hydrating your face
Our bodies are composed of up to 60% water, so it makes sense that we require ample hydration on the outside and inside to maintain a healthy complexion. While internal hydration is easy enough to achieve by drinking enough fluids, your skin requires moisture as well and being a man does not exclude your skin from drying out easily due to differences in cell structure. There are several factors that can cause you to develop dry skin, with some of the more common ones being age, weather, temperature and bathing habits. Dry skin often results in flaky skin, overcompensation of the sebum glands and the worst-case scenario: itchy, inflamed skin. Don’t fret if you struggle with dry skin issues, they’re relatively easy to deal with by investing in a quality skin care regime targeted for men’s skin.
How to choose the right moisturiser for dehydrated, dry skin
Contrary to popular belief that any moisturiser will do when it comes to men’s skin care, men require different types of facial moisturisers as well, depending on their skin type. Using the wrong moisturiser can result in oily skin, the exact opposite of what you would aim for. Before you proceed with purchasing a moisturiser, you should first identify what your skin needs, be it freshness that your skin craves or comfort. Not all men’s moisturisers are created equal. For a fresh, lightweight and intensely hydrating experience, look to ClarinsMen Super Moisture Gel. A cooling gel that’s hydrating without being greasy, it makes use of the energising and soothing properties of Bison Grass as well as the hydration activating ingredient Leaf of Life to keep skin hydrated. Bison Grass features extensively across the ClarinsMen range of skincare products for the simple fact that its properties are particularly suited to the specific needs of men’s skin. If it’s a comforting texture that you’re searching for, the ClarinsMen Super Moisture Balm will be your skin’s saviour. A silky-smooth, non-greasy cream, it envelops your skin in a comfortably lightweight and hydrating armour to protect your skin from drying out from harsh temperatures.
How to choose different moisturisers for different men’s facial needs?
The sensitive under-eye areas
Certain parts of your skin may be more sensitive than others and one such area is the skin surrounding your eyes. Men’s faces and skin care needs don’t differ too greatly from that of women’s skin care. Prone to laugh lines, late nights, sun damage and frequent rubbing, the eye area requires hydration to help it recover and regain its youthful brightness. A light gel focused on reducing puffiness and dark circles such as the ClarinsMen Anti-fatigue Eye Serum will do wonders for dry, tired eye areas.
Your skin may also be feeling a little more tender than usual post-shave, hence you may need a facial moisturiser for men that specifically targets post-shave issues, like a revitalising gel such as the ClarinsMen Super Moisture Gel that simultaneously seals in moisture and locks out pollutants. Bison Grass extracts in this potent formula help to revive skin’s texture and skin tone while moisturising Sunflower Auxin extracts soothe and firm up skin to reverse the damage done by razor burns and nicks. If gel formulas are not your favoured skincare product type, perhaps a balm would be more suited to your preference. The ClarinsMen Super Moisture Balm works much like the ClarinsMen Super Moisture Gel, but instead presents you with a creamy texture meant to comfort razor burned skin and boost skin’s moisture levels. We recommend patting on a light layer of either treatment post-shave for immediate relief from redness, nicks and razor burns.
