How a Man’s Skin Ages
While there’s no rule against men using products viewed as women’s skin care, you may want to consider ones that have been formulated specifically for men’s skin. Men’s skin can be different from women’s skin in a number of ways. Due to increased collagen, a man’s skin is generally thicker than a woman’s. However, as he gets older, that thickness can diminish and men may start to experience the visible signs of skin aging like sagging, crow’s feet, and dark circles. It’s great for men to reach for products that have been specifically formulated for their skin care needs and concerns.
Age Defender Dual-Action Exfoliating Cleanser
Formulated with Moroccan Lava Clay, the 2-in-1 black face wash deeply cleanses while exfoliating to help remove excess dirt and oil for a refreshed, younger-looking appearance. For a deeper exfoliation you can use the cleanser as a five-minute mask. As a mask, the formula, with plant-derived Phytic Acid, will break down the toughest layers of dead skin cells to smooth the appearance of fine lines and improve overall texture.
To use as a daily cleanser, dampen your face and hands with warm water, apply the product to your face and work into a lather by massaging onto the skin with circular motions. Rinse with lukewarm water and pat dry, following with a moisturizer—and SPF if it’s during the day. To use as a men’s face mask up to three times a week, apply a visible layer to clean skin and allow the mask to dry for five minutes. Rinse with warm water and massage skin in a gentle circular motion. Pat dry and follow up with moisturizer.
Kiehl’s Age Defender for Men Collection
If you’re looking to round out your men’s skin care routine check out Kiehl’s Age Defender for men collection, a men’s skin care line that the brand launched last year. The line includes a serum, moisturizer, and eye cream to help men address the signs of aging skin. The serum, Kiehl’s first for men, is lightweight, formulated with cypress extract, hydrolyzed proteins, and adenosine, and helps to visibly firm skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. The moisturizer utilizes technology to help to exfoliate the skin and improve elasticity. Finally, the eye cream—formulated with rye seed extract—helps to brighten the appearance of the eye contour, and helps improve the appearance of dark circles, crow’s feet, and under-eye bags.
