When was the last time you looked closely at the face staring back at you in the mirror? I mean close enough to really look at the quality of your skin and whether it helps you look younger or older than you really are?
If you are a man (like me), the answer may be “not very often.” However, if you are reading this article, you may have begun to notice some early signs of aging and are interested to know what the best men’s skin care remedies have to offer you.
So, let’s discover what makes the best men’s skin care products, shall we?
Although many of the same causes of aging are relevant for men’s skin as well as women’s, there are some important differences.
For example, men tend to have oilier skin than women. Also, men tend to suffer from inflammation and redness more often than women.
It stands to reason then, that the best men’s skin care products are formulated specifically for men, and are not just repackaged women’s products. Now let’s take a look at some of the key ingredients you should look for in the best men’s skin care remedies.
Cynergy TK: This is a new breakthrough in skincare and works by alleviating one of the core causes of aging skin: the loss of collagen and elastin.
As we grow older, we start to lose collagen and elastin in the skin. This is what causes wrinkles and lines. Cynergy TK actually stimulates your skin to grow collagen and elastin on its own, naturally.
Cynergy TK is a natural form of keratin, which is a protein that is found throughout our bodies. In addition to being a natural form of keratin, Cynergy TK is also gently prepared in a way that makes it readily available for use in our bodies, unlike other forms of keratin on the market today.
Cynergy TK has one more benefit especially for men: it blocks the production of a substance called Prostaglandin E2, which is the cause of inflammation often prevalent in men’s skin.
Witch Hazel: A plant extract that is especially good at reducing redness and inflammation of the skin, witch hazel is an ingredient found in some of the best men’s skin care products. It is traditionally known to have a natural soothing effect on the skin and has also been used by men as a remedy for shaving cuts and abrasions.
Phytessence Wakame: A powerful antioxidant derived from Japanese sea algae, Phytessence Wakame is also proven to increase skin elasticity and to reduce irritation.
In addition, it is nutrient rich; containing vitamin B1, B2, B3, B6, B12, iron, potassium and calcium. All of which are good for your skin.
CoQ10: One more key ingredient in the best men’s skin care products today, is a cutting edge vitamin-like substance commonly called CoQ10 (sometimes referred to as Nano-Lipobelle H-EQ10). This substance is in every cell in our bodies, mostly in the mitochondria.
Our CoQ10 levels decrease when we get older, when we are under stress, and when we are exposed to UV radiation from the sun. Adding this to your skin can protect against the harmful effects of the sun, reduce wrinkles, and enhance cell activity which rejuvenates the skin.
One word of caution: many skincare products now contain CoQ10, but not in sufficient concentrations or in a form that can effectively penetrate the skin. In these products, the CoQ10 simply sits on top of the skin and has little effect.
The best men’s skin care products use a special ‘nano-emulsion’ form of CoQ10 which enables it to penetrate through all seven layers or your skin, providing the greatest benefit.
So there you have it; an overview of the most important ingredients to look for when choosing the best men’s skin care products.
Your next step? To take what you’ve just learned and spend some time comparing men’s skin care products. Once you do, you will realize as I do, that there are only a few products on the market that truly deliver effective, natural treatment specially formulated for a man’s skin.
