Men Use It Too

The youthful exuberance that shines through clear, unblemished skin is a blessing. According to a study posted by UC Davis, 85% of teenagers will get acne between the ages of 11-24. Fortunately, the victims of dry or pimpled skin have access to numerous skin care products that can help reduce the problem.

However, for men, there comes an issue… the male perception surrounding skin care is often one that suggests the practice is feminine or not masculine enough. This way of thinking is a recipe for middle-aged disaster. In the traditional sense, men are conditioned to behave as stronger, more protective, and emotionless warriors.

Unfortunately, moisturizing was not on the curriculum for being an all-powerful warrior. But it may very well become a thing if men only knew just how vulnerable they were to unsatisfying skin conditions! That’s right, men typically have oilier skin because the male sebaceous glands are more active than the females. In this case, more sebum (oil) means more acne.

Another issue that men have to face is the concept of facial-shaving. The skin on the face is very sensitive and each time you shave, you remove top-level skin cells and oil in the process. Shaving, while not inherently bad, simply stresses out the skin and could potentially lead to dry skin, ingrown hairs, or razor burn without the proper products/technique.

Okay, I think it’s fair to say that we have the almighty warrior’s attention… after all, no amount of armor can protect him from dry skin. Well, there is an ‘armor’ that men can use for this problem and it’s called moisturizer.

The reason we all practice well-rounded skin care routines is to prevent or delay the visible signs of aging. For the skin, aging means wrinkles, liver spots, sun damage, or other blemishes that come through time. These signs of aging typically catch men off guard because they tend to develop at a slower pace in men. This is due to the higher counts of collagen and elastin found in male skin.

By staying true to a skin care routine, men can increase the longevity of their clear, young-looking complexion for many years to come. And there’s absolutely nothing feminine about having good hygiene! If anything, a clear face will only help the warrior win over his princess-to-be.

However, it isn’t just the routine you need to worry about, it’s also the quality of the products. Fortunately, you don’t need to look too far from this post. farragio’s all-natural moisturizing face cream: first impression, isn’t just for women… men use it too!

first impression can be used on your face, body, as a hair mask, and even as a beard paste for men. This is because the product is hand-crafted with 100% natural ingredients. That means you won’t have to worry about any synthetic chemicals potentially reacting negatively with your skin.

Routinely moisturizing your face every day won’t add but maybe 1-2 minutes to your morning routine. Remember, practicing good hygiene is not feminine at all; in fact, we might just see a bottle of moisturizer in the warrior’s armory after all. ♥
