Do the men in your life have everything making gift giving a real chore? Are they hard-core outdoor enthusiasts? Do they spend hours and hours each week in an office or on a plane?
Whatever their profession, whatever they do on the weekends, give them the best skin care products for men this holiday season.
Every man, at one time or another, has secretly tried beauty products designed for women. It’s okay, after all, they need to protect, cleanse, moisturize, and keep their skin looking healthy and young too.
Luxury department stores including Harrods, Nordstrom’s, Neiman Marcus, and others have expanded their men’s counters to include skin care products right alongside the colognes and after shaves in an attempt to capture their desire.
The problem? Many of these department store products err on the side of gimmicky, and aren’t made with the same care and precision as the products at the women’s counter. Let’s take a look at a few universal beauty products that every man (and woman) need in their medicine cabinet to have healthy, younger looking skin.
Let’s face it, there are just too many men out there still grabbing the bar of soap from the shower and using it to wash their face. Besides the general “ick” factor, let’s agree that body soap and facial cleansers are not created equal. A great entry level introduction to proper men’s grooming is a facial cleanser.
Look for one that works hard to get the dirt and grime of the day off, but gentle enough that it won’t strip his skin of the natural oils that keep it soft and supple.
Choose cleansers with natural and organic ingredients like aloe vera that soothe the skin after a day outdoors in the sun and wind, and tea tree oil that helps to clarify the skin, and a combination of nourishing moisturizers like rose hip oil and jojoba oil to keep skin hydrated and supple.
Every man over the age of 25 has dead skin on this face and body. We women learned a long time ago the importance of sloughing off dead skin to keep our skin smooth and soft. It is high time the guys catch on.
When choosing a body scrub (which should never be used on the face) for the men in your life, look for ingredients like coconut oil and brown sugar with citrusy essential oils for scent and clarifying purposes and in no time his weathered arms, neck, and legs, will be soft and ready to receive moisturizing creams.
For the face, we think it is important to combine the effects of a microdermabrasion with the soothing effects of natural moisturizers and healers. Monica’s Beauty Microdermabrasion Scrub was carefully formulated to uncover the healthy-looking complexion that is hiding beneath the dead skin.
In this microdermabrasion scrub, Avocado, Jojoba, Hemp, Grapeseed, and Shea Butter are blended with Vitamin E for best results. From the first use, forward, he will see immediate results in how his skin looks, and feels.
A good moisturizing cream or lotion is imperative to keep away fine lines and wrinkles and protect against rapid aging of the skin. When searching for the best moisturizer for the men on your gift list, seek out the ones with natural, wholesome, and organic ingredients. For men with a few wrinkles and other imperfections like age spots, we recommend a retinol moisturizer with at least 2.5% retinol for best results. This formula from Monica’s Beauty features Jojoba Oil, Shea Butter, Vitamin A, E, and B5 making it one of the best anti aging creams available on the market today.
Forget the multi-tools, tech gadgets, power tools, ties and socks, and skip the cologne this year and opt for luxurious and natural skin care products for the men on your gift list. By choosing the right products, they will see immediate results, and so should you!
You know how important natural, quality, made in the USA skin care products are to your skin, why not share your love for the products and give him the gift that will turn back time.
Their skin will thank you, and they’ll thank you for a bit of pampering.
