Male skin care products have started to become popular. I am sure you have seen a number of them in your local beauty and health stores. This should be good news for men, as you don't have to put up with wrinkles or dull, stressed skin.
Choosing among male skin care products may sometimes not be as simple as choosing one for women. There are several other factors to consider aside from effectiveness and price. You also have to consider the ease of use, as men rarely would want to spend time applying creams that will take a while to settle.
If your focus is mainly on anti-aging, you will need two primary male skin care products: a face cream and a body cream . But what products should you choose and how do you choose the right one?
The main rule for choosing the right men facial care product is to look at the ingredients and components of the product.
You have to be aware that skin aging, wrinkles and dull skin can be attributed to three main reasons: the loss of elastin and collagen, oxidation due to free radicals, and lowered levels of hyaluronic acid.
A good skin care product should contain ingredients that will specifically fight all these culprits to help get rid of unwanted aging signs. Unfortunately, not all products in the market, even for female skin care, provide remedies for all three.
I am sure now you are wondering just how you will know which face cream for men, for example, contains ingredients that you need? Citing out all possible ingredients may be difficult so let me just cite an example product which I believe contains one of the best formulations in male skin care today. I am talking about Xtend Life's Age-Defense Active product line.
If you look at the main ingredients, you will see three main components:
1. CynergyTK. This is actually a new trend in skin care and is probably not available in many products today. This has been proven to stimulate the regrowth of new skin, elastin and collagen.
2. Phytessence wakame (sea kelp extract). This Japanese herb has been seen to inhibit an enzyme which is responsible for the breakdown of hyaluronic acid in the skin.
3. Coenzyme Q10. You have probably heard of this before. This is a very potent anti-oxdant which can penetrate deep through the skin and eradicate free radicals.
What is even greater is that unlike many men facial moisturizer and cleanser in one, Age-Defense Facial fluid is somehow special as it does not give the uncomfortable sticky feeling on the face. Obviously, we highly recommend this product if you are out of time to search for a good one.
This is an excellent example of what your male skin care products must contain. There are different formulations out in the market where you can freely choose from. You should choose carefully so you can offer your skin only the best. Yes, even if you're a man!
