Mens Skin Care Line
Just because you are male doesn’t mean that you can’t use cosmetics or a specific mens skin care line product. Once upon a time, it seemed that only gay men wore skin enhancement products, and mostly because gay men in general cared more about their appearance than their hetro counterparts. Not so today. That’s all changing, and many men (hetros and gays alike) are now so much more conscious of their appearance than they used to be, and the female partners in particular are a lot more choosey and demanding about how their men should look and feel.
Skin care line products in particular are right out there if the forefront of men’s cosmetics today; and why? – Because they have so much to offer. They’re not just a cosmetic for the sake of aesthetics only. Yes, they make your skin look better, but they also care for your skin, they can help to repair your skin, they make your skin feel good (not only to you but for your partner also) and they can make you smell nice too.
The more traditional mens skin care lines are of course shaving products; foams, gels, aftershave moisturizers and balms. Shaving gels offer a richer “feel” about them than foams do. Whereas foam is very light a sits on top of the skin, a gel by its very nature get massaged into the skin giving an enriched feeling and moisturizing the skin in the process too.
Wet shaves are so much more effective than electric. It doesn’t matter what electric razors purport to say about how well they shave; the truth of the matter is that if you want a really close shave, wet is the only way, and if you haven’t used a cut-throat, you’d be amazed at just how close they get; just like that proverbial baby’s bottom.
Electric razors do have their place though. They are great for speed and convenience, but if your going to “go electric”, a good quality pre-shave solution in essential. It not only makes you feel and smell nice, but it also sets up your bristles, ready for the chop.
And then of course there’s the aftershave. After shave foam and gels; this is the next most popular mens skin care line favorite. There are some very effective soothing balms of the market today which not only nourish your skin, but they put back some of that lost moisture and sooth away any heat and/or discomfort following a shave; particularly relevant if you have sensitive skin.
A lot of aftershave products are now generated by some of the great perfume and fragrance houses. They’re not cheap to purchase, but they have some fantastic fragrances that your partner is sure to love.
But it’s not just about shaving. There are also men’s skin cleaning products; for problem or sensitive skin. Some guy’s skins just don’t like soap, and these cleansing products offer a great alternative. They get right down into the pores and remove any hidden traces of dirt and or left-over cosmetics.
Other mens skin care lines include overnight moisturizers and face packs too.
There really is a great world of choice in mens skin care line products today; whether you go browsing round your local department store, or whether you browse online, you will be spoilt for choice. But try and avoid any products that contain alcohol; it dries your skin up. Look for products that contain natural ingredients and supplements; things that put “wellness” and goodness back into your skin; and don’t be afraid to experiment to find the products that suit you as an individual the best.
