Real Men Put on Lotions, Too
Aren’t lotions for women?
If you think real men just forget about caring for their skin, think again. Face, hands, and body lotions are just a few of the essentials in keeping a man’s skin healthy and glowing.
Believe it or not a man also needs to take care of his skin. You can imagine what would happen if he doesn’t. After a long day at work, he quickly arrives home, have his dinner, take a shower (at least) and sleep. And there are times when you think that real men only washes his hands with water (from elsewhere), showers or dives at the lake after he hunts and eats whatever edible he sees in the jungle. The consequences of just leaving your skin without any care can be a nightmare. So, if you don’t want to experience Halloween this Holiday, read on.
Problem: Skin Lotions? What’s in it for the guys?
Indeed, this is a major problem that needs to be solved. And if you do not do something about it, worse could get any worse. Most men do not know what skin lotions are. Or should you rather think that they just do not care at all. No matter the kind of ad there is, men are simply not feeling manly whenever they are told to put apply lotion. Truth is, men who have maintained their skin smooth and young, even at the age of 40, are enjoying every detail of it. You have to keep in mind that there isn’t any skin care product solely formulated for men and his skin. What you need to take note of are the ingredients it contain.
Chemical Names and their Definitions
You have to admit, you can’t call on a friend, 50/50, or even ask the audience when you want to know what these chemical names mean. All you ever know is each ingredient is good for your skin, or NOT? When people would think they are supposed to heal and make that largest organ in your body healthy, do not be fooled. Most of all, do not panic. Let’s learn these chemical compounds that seem to be a name from the outer space.
Quite familiar? This chemical has a lot of relatives and if you do not have knowledge on what they are and their purpose, it would end up hurting your skin. Well, most of them could be harsh, but there are the milder versions of it such as lanolin which can strengthen and even moisturize your skin. So, you have to be careful in choosing the right product.
AHA (Apha Hydroxy Acids)
You would notice this ingredient mostly in fruit products. They’re mild and gentle in keeping skin healthy as it clears the dead skin cells, smooths it thereafter.
You don’t have to be hard on yourself. The moment the collagen breaks, this is where wrinkles begin to form. Blame it on the ‘free radicals’ found in the environment, dust, smoke, and other elements that keeps collagen break easy. Antioxidants neutralize the skin molecules and protects it at the same time.
The idea is simple, you don’t have to worry yourself and look for the product that would protect and keep your skin healthy. The natural ingredients that are combined to formulate a lotion is all you need. Again, it’s not just women, real men put on lotions too.
