The last stop on any man’s grooming journey should be a good moisturiser. Moisturisers address skin concerns such as dry or sensitive skin, protect and strengthen sensitive skin, improve skin tone, fight ageing and overall improve the appearance of skin. Nowadays many moisturisers also include ingredients that fight the signs of fatigue and brighten up dull and tired skin and the effects of a hectic lifestyle.
Regardless of your skin concerns or needs its important to choose the right moisturiser that works effectively with your skin type. If you suffer from dry or sensitive skin choose a moisturiser with oil based ingredient such Aloe Vera or Chamomile. The signs of ageing can be combated with an oil based moisturiser also. Alternatively if you suffer from oily skin it’s best to use a water based moisturiser. If you’re looking a little worse for wear after a big night or a busy lifestyle then grab a moisturiser that contains ingredients such as caffeine, Vitamin C or Creatine to reduce the signs of tired and dull skin.
A good moisturiser is an important investment and should be a vital element of every man’s grooming regime. Given the number of affordable moisturisers available you can be certain of an excellent grooming investment without breaking the bank.
