Taking care of yourself with men's cosmetics has never been so easy. The first thing you have to do is define your daily, weekly and monthly skin care routines.
For example, there are a number of facial care activities that should be done on a daily basis, even twice a day. In the same way that brushing your teeth takes place at least twice a day, the same should apply to your facial cleansing.
The ideal would be to associate oral hygiene with facial cleansing. A good tip for this is to put our Extra Gent's - Facial Cleanser - next to your toothbrush. There are even people who put it in the same container where they keep their toothbrush and toothpaste.
This way, you will always remember to clean your face every morning and night, every time you brush your teeth. Facial cleansing should therefore be a daily must.
The other daily ritual should always be your facial moisturizer. We know that in a well-hydrated skin, signs of aging will appear later, and instead when our skin dries out, it is when it "cracks" and wrinkles appear.
This wrinkle appearance process is much slower than it seems, and we could say that the wrinkles that will come out tomorrow have already started to appear today in the deepest layers of the skin.
That is why it is essential to always keep the skin well hydrated and nourished, even when you have combination skin.
How to choose a facial cream for men?
If you have combination or oily skin, your skin does not need as much hydration as in the case of normal or dry skin. But be aware that combination skin can temporarily get dehydrated (what is known as "dehydrated combination or oily skin") and this can cause premature aging of your skin.
If you have combination or oily skin, the best way to take care of your skin is with a gel texture, like that of our Anti-Stress GEL. If you have normal or dry skin, then we recommend using our cream texture like our Anti-Stress CREAM.
As for facial creams for men are in general, our recommendation is that you use a cream that is comfortable and that fulfills all the functions that your skin requires: that hydrates, that nourishes it, that is firming (something very important for men's skin) and protects it from external agents. And of course it treats and prevents the appearance of wrinkles.
Our ANTI-STRESS concept meets all these requirements (all-in-one), in such a way that the only thing you have to worry about is selecting the texture that best suits your skin type or the time of year.
In conclusion, there are two basic activities when taking care of your skin and preventing the appearance of wrinkles that you should put into practice on a daily basis: cleansing and hydration. If you also manage to link them to oral hygiene, that is, cleansing and hydrating your face every day (when you wake up and before you go to bed), you will have managed to establish a very simple daily facial care routine that will give you great results.
