5 Best Face Moisturizers Every Man Needs
If there were ever a time when men couldn’t find the right moisturizer for their skin concerns, we’re happy to report those days are long gone. Our evidence? The sheer volume of face moisturizers on the market targeted specifically for men’s skin, which — if you didn’t already know — is oilier and thicker than women’s skin. Some formulas even go beyond daily hydration and offer additional benefits including anti-aging, anti-fatigue, SPF protection and shine reduction. To help save you time and effort, we went ahead and found the five best moisturizers for men. Read on to find your perfect face moisturizer match!
Your skin may look youthful and wrinkle free right now, but as you get older fine lines may start to creep up on you. Take matters into your own hands —even if it’s purely preventative— with this formula that combines pro-retinol and par-elastyl, anti-wrinkle and anti-sagging ingredients. Pro-retinol works to fight the appearance of sagging on the face and neck, while also visibly reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Par-elastyl delivers a burst of hydration to the skin for a smoother complexion and more soothing application.
This moisturizer may land on the pricier side, but there’s good reason. The moisturizer boasts 7-in-1 benefits, which is perfect for the low-maintenance guy. The fluid is lightweight and helps with oil-control, fighting wrinkles, firming and refining skin texture and delivering intense moisture. The formula absorbs into the skin quickly and leaves a matte finish.
Lock in 72 hours of moisture with this Biotherm product that pushes the limits of hydration. The formula prevents the skin from drying after during a long day and helps protect your face against environmental aggressors, like humidity, that can cause unwanted dryness. The moisturizer is ultra-light and feels cool against the skin during application.
With a name like Age Defender, you can guess that this moisturizer pulls through with some serious anti-aging properties. Formulated specifically for men’s thicker, coarser skin, this heavy-duty moisturizer helps minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles and improves skin’s elasticity and firmness.
A spin on its classic oil-free moisturizer, Baxter of California revamped the best-selling formula with SPF 15. But protecting your skin against harmful UVA/UVB rays isn’t the only thing this moisturizer can do. It also has glycerin to help combat dry skin and prevent future moisture loss, and vitamin E to soothe and nourish the skin.
