Why moisturiser is manly and other anti-ageing tips for men

The number of men using moisturiser and other skin care products is on the rise – and one Personal Beauty Stylist is here to encourage this to continue. Warren from Dublin discusses his own skin care regime and gives his top anti-ageing tips for men.

Warren’s skin care routine is comprehensive. For daytime, he uses face wash, exfoliant, serum for Acne-prone skin, oil-free moisturiser with SPF50 as well as an eye cream. At night, he removes the day’s build-up of dirt and grime with cleansing oil, followed by an anti-ageing serum containing retinol, more eye cream and moisturiser. He’ll also use a hydrating face mask twice a week.

And he’s not alone. In the last 10 years, he’s found that more and more men are following suit with their own personalised grooming routines, designed to keep their skin looking youthful for longer.

He recommends that all men cleanse and moisturise daily, following this up with a tiny dab of eye cream to prevent lines and wrinkles from developing.

So what are his top skin care tips for men?

  • Exfoliate before shaving!

Using an exfoliating scrub helps to soften the bristles on your chin and face, giving you a closer shave. It also prevents the risk of ingrown hairs.

  • Oil is a must for beards!

If you’ve got a beard, regular maintenance is essential to keep it in tip top condition. Invest in a beard oil to keep yours moisturised and oh so soft.

  • Use an eye cream containing caffeine!

Disguise one too many late nights with eye cream rich in caffeine, proven to stimulate circulation. This not only helps you look more awake, it’ll also minimise the appearance of puffiness and dark under-eye circles.
