It’s a simple fact that every human, no matter their gender, will start to show the signs of ageing at some point. However, there are differences when it comes to men and women – men’s faces have usually dealt with years of the rigours of shaving, and the hormonal differences at different stages of their lives mean that men and women aren’t the same when it comes to ageing. There are, however, a whole bunch of products which are specifically designed to protect men’s skin, and we’ve curated five of the best for this list:
This mask from Elemis is a balancing and calming treatment mask which harnesses the power of rosemary, thyme and lavender essential oils in a kaolin clay base. Helps decongest and heal blemished skin and is the perfect treatment for faces which have been over-sensitised by shaving and the elements.
Shaving can cause significant depletion to the skin’s own moisture levels, which in itself can exacerbate the signs of ageing, which is why using a post-shave treatment is so important. This aftershave fluid from Decleor hydrates and protects the skin against harsh external factors and is suitable for all skin types, even the most sensitive. Skin appears hydrated, supple and more resistant after use.
This award-winning anti-ageing cream for men from Elemis is almost identical to the massively popular version for women, just with a slightly more masculine fragrance and packaging. It’s a clinically proven, formulated for men, this nourishing moisturiser helps to hydrate, firm and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
The eyes are often one of the places that men report losing firmness and seeing wrinkles before any other, which is why Elemis created this eye reviving product just for the guys. It’s clinically proven to reduce the depth of wrinkles by over 37% and will protect the skin against free-radical damage, helping to tighten, firm and hydrate.
Moisture is the single biggest defence against the signs of ageing, so this Elemis moisture boosting cream is a great ally. It contains chestnut natamilk, bamboo natamilk and tamanu oil which combine to provide moisturisation and nourishment, restore elasticity, tone, regenerate and soothe the skin.
