After Washing our face with face wash , generally, most men aren’t arsed about moisturizing. We don’t do it as often as we should and, when we do, it’s often the case that we use the wrong moisturizer for our skin. Our faces are exposed to harsh elements including the weather, pollination, sweat and dirt which can leave our skin fatigued. Moisturising can help protect against all all these elements. Ideally it is a good idea to moisturize our faces in the morning and at night after cleansing and whenever we take a bath or shower. However, it’s of the upmost importance to identifying the correct moisturiser for your skin type. You really don’t want to use a moisturizer that’s not intended for your skin type. For example, if you have oily skin but are using a moisturizer for normal skin, you might experience breakout of spots, acne or other skin complaints.
Men’s Moisturizers for dry skin
Having dry skin can have your face feeling like snakeskin. Not only does it look awful, it can feel irritable, scaly and uncomfortable. There are many moisturizers on the market for dry skin, however, some aren’t always suitable. Some can be too rich leaving the skin overly moisturised. Others can lead to the production of excess oil which can lead to whiteheads and other skin problems. Sometimes, in desperation, men with dry facial skin resort to medical type moisturisers such as E45 and Vaseline – however, this really isn’t the best approach. Such creams have their place…but that’s not on the face. Your moisturiser should be designed for facial use only. See Men’s Dry Skin Treatment

Men’s Moisturizers for oily skin
Oily skin on men is quite a common issue. Some men with oily skin deem themselves lucky, considering oily skin often looks more youthful. However, the problem with having oily skin is that it’s prone to spots, whiteheads and blackheads and the skin having a shiny or sweaty appearance. No-one wants that. So, when choosing a moisturiser for oily skin, it’s important to avoid any oil based products. Oily skin still needs moisturising but your best bet is to go for a water based hydrator.

Men’s Moisturizers Combination skin
A lot of men with combination skin perhaps aren’t aware they have it. Combination skin is a mixture of dry and oily skin. The oily parts are often in the t-zone (across the forehead, running down the nose, stopping at the chin) whilst the dry bits develop around it. This type of skin can be difficult to treat. Oftentimes, skin care products are designed for oily or dry skin – not both. A good combination moisturizer should be a hydrating moisturizer but one that does not contain oil.
