Men and moisturisers

No self-respecting modern male should go through life without at least a rudimentary understanding of skin care.

Gone are the days when guys could claim that the words “man” and “moisturiser” should never appear in the same sentence. In fact, no self-respecting modern male should go through life without at least a rudimentary understanding of skin care. There is more to grooming than slapping on a bit of aftershave in the morning.

An effective skin care routine will barely take a few minutes out of your day and will help you preserve a healthy, firm and youthful-looking skin even as you progress in age. But there are enough male grooming products out there to confuse the socks off any uninitiated man. Not to worry. With only a few basic tips you should be ready to embrace your healthier-skin self in no time.
