When it comes to men’s grooming, there is arguably no greater essential than a good quality moisturiser. Moisturising should be a vital part of your routine to maintain a fresh face, keeping your skin soft and smooth.
Whether you’re looking to level up your face-game or are starting your journey into self-care now, our team is here to educate you on how to pick the best moisturiser for you – and it’s easier than you think…
The key to picking the right moisturiser is by determining what skin type you have. Generally speaking, you will have oily, dry or sensitive skin. How do you know what skin type you have? A matte surface or skin that is flaking or feels tight suggests dry skin; a greasy or shiny complexion equals oily. Those with combination skin may notice an oily ‘T-zone’ on their nose and forehead as well as matte or dry skin on other parts of the face.
Oily skin can often mean skin is dehydrated and therefore the skin is overcompensating and producing more oil. Don’t be afraid of oil-based moisturisers, but it is best to go for something hydrating and light.
Our favourites include:
Dry skin moisturisers are designed to replenish or elevate your skin’s own levels of fatty acids, ceramides, and cholesterol. Dry skin lacks the natural oils and fats responsible for keeping the moisture in your skin that it needs to rehydrate.
If you have sensitive skin, look for products that don’t have any fragrance or added active ingredients. Opt for light hydration. We’ve made sure that all of the moisturisers stocked in our store are suitable for sensitive skin, so you can pick one of the above depending on whether your skin tends to be more oily or dry.
To get the most out of a moisturiser, it is recommended that you use it as part of a whole routine. It doesn’t have to be a complicated routine, but be sure to properly cleanse your face before you moisturise to give the product the best chance to seep into the skin’s pores. On top of cleansing, it is also advised to exfoliate your skin once a week for a deeper clean.
