More and more men are discovering the benefits of taking care of their skin. If you haven’t joined the skin care party, you literally have no excuse. Brands like Disco make it easy for you to get healthy, sexy skin in just minutes a day.
All you need is a few great products and a little know-how. We’ve got you covered on both fronts. Our skin care is specially formulated to keep your skin in its healthy pH range, and our products are fast and easy, just like...a microwave dinner.
One of the most crucial elements of a basic skin care routine is a quality moisturizer. It doesn’t matter if your skin is dry, oily, or a combination of both, your skin needs a moisturizer, and it needs it daily.
The body lotion in the back of your bathroom cabinet? That’s not for your face, man. It can irritate your skin and even cause you to have a breakout. Instead, opt for a moisturizer formulated especially for your face.
Want to know how to pick the best face moisturizer?
We’ll gladly hook you up with the info you need, give you the lowdown on what ingredients work best, and give you some tips and tricks to keep your skin looking and feeling as hydrated and healthy as possible.
Why Do I Need a Moisturizer?
It’s a fair question, especially if your skin isn’t especially dry. Moisturizers, however, aren’t simply a cure for dry skin.
Moisturizers have two main functions:
- Draw water into your skin. This is the job of ingredients that are humectants. Humectants draw moisture into your skin, from products and even the air.
- Soften and smooth the skin. Ingredients called emollients help soften and smooth skin, and also create a protective layer on the skin to help it keep its moisture locked in.
Moisturizers can provide a lot of other benefits, too, depending on what ingredients they include. From combating wrinkles to protecting your skin from external stressors, your moisturizer can do some heavy lifting.
The most important concern you should have with a facial moisturizer is making sure it’s working to properly hydrate your skin.
How do you know when your skin is properly moisturized? You won’t notice. Your skin will be comfortable, smooth, and the last thing that crosses your mind.
When your skin is not properly moisturized, it’s uncomfortable. Dry, itchy, flaky, or oily and blemish-prone. Either way, it’s enough to distract you.
5 Best Face Moisturizers for Men
Dry, oily, or combination, we’ve got the top five best face hydrating ingredients you should look for when picking your skin moisturizer. These ingredients were selected for their ability to not only hydrate your skin but also tackle skin-related issues like fine lines and wrinkles.
These ingredients all have the ability to do double duty; moisturizing your skin and helping it feel and look better.
Stick to this guide and you don’t have to worry about using a face cream loaded with potentially harsh or toxic ingredients that could irritate your skin or cause a breakout.
1. Vitamin E
Vitamin E is an amazing, all-natural ingredient that helps hydrate skin and lock in moisture. Vitamin E is a skin-conditioning agent, or emollient, which helps fill in dry, rough patches of skin and leave your skin feeling smooth and supple.
You’ll also get a ton of free radical benefits from Vitamin E. Not sure what free radicals are, and why you need protection against them?
Free radicals are unbalanced molecules that attack healthy skin cells. They come from sources like the sun, pollution, and even household cleaners. Free radicals cause your skin to look older, by producing fine lines and wrinkles, stripping away skin’s elasticity, and giving you dark spots.
Your skin needs antioxidants to defend itself against free radicals. Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that can help to restore your skin and protect against free radicals.
Vitamin E also helps your skin by helping your skin repair free radical damage. It’s often used for helping fade dark spots left from the sun.
2.Macadamia Nut Oil
Any quality moisturizer is going to contain an all-natural, plant-based oil. Our pick? Macadamia nut oil. This oil is rich in fatty acids that help fill in wrinkles and fine lines and keep your skin looking younger.
Macadamia nut oil also has anti-aging properties, so you can fight off wrinkles before they start. Don’t think you need anti-aging ingredients? Trust us, you do. You can thank us in ten years.
3. Vitamin C
What vitamin C does for your body in your morning OJ, it does for your skin. Chocked full of antioxidant power, vitamin C helps protect your skin against free radicals and keep it healthy.
Vitamin C helps brighten your complexion, making you look more awake and refreshed. If you have an uneven skin tone, vitamin C is your go-to. It helps even out skin tone, making it look like you got eight hours of uninterrupted sleep.
4. Eucalyptus Oil
Another great plant-based oil you should look for in a moisturizer is eucalyptus oil. Not only does it battle unwanted bacteria hanging out on your skin, but it also helps keep it moisturized.
Eucalyptus works to increase your skin’s ceramide level. Ceramides are lipids found in your skin that help your skin retain moisture naturally. Eucalyptus supports an increase in ceramide levels, which helps keep your skin hydrated all day.
5. Chamomilla Flower Extract
Our fifth and final best face moisturizing ingredient for men’s skin is chamomilla flower extract. This plant-based extract offers free radical protection and is also known for its skin conditioning properties.
Chamomilla flower extract helps improve your skin’s overall texture, leaving it smoother than Barry White’s voice.
How to Find the Best Face Moisturizer for Men
You can try some of the moisturizers you find in big box stores, but that’s like playing Russian Roulette with your skin. For one, most moisturizers you find in local stores have been formulated for women’s skin, not men’s.
Disco’s face moisturizer is specifically designed to work with the perfect pH balance of a man’s skin; that’s important in keeping it blemish-free and healthy.
Our products contain ingredients that help you keep your skin moisturized the way a man’s skin needs to be.
Disco’s Hydrating Face Moisturizer is:
- Effective. Our unique blend of ingredients keeps your skin hydrated all day. Use it in the a.m. and p.m. and your skin will feel hydrated every hour in between.
- Age-defying. Your skin stays youthful when you take care of it. Using our moisturizer helps keep your skin protected from free radical damage and helps reverse damage that’s already done.
- Lightweight. There’s no need for a heavy face cream for daily use. Unless you’ve got seriously dry skin, a lightweight moisturizer is all you need morning and evening. Our formula absorbs quickly, so you can get on with your day.
Moisturizer Tips and Tricks
When it comes to hydrating your face, it’s more than just slathering lotion on your skin. To get the most bang for your buck, you need to moisturize your skin as part of a complete skin care routine.
If you don’t have a consistent skin care routine, you’re behind the times. Play catch up by leveling up and adding our starter set to your bathroom counter.
The starter set contains everything you need to begin a daily skin care routine: a facial cleanser, face scrub, and our hydrating moisturizer.
Use all three products twice a day and you’ll enjoy incredibly healthy skin and noticeably softer texture, even if you have facial hair.
When you’re ready to dive deeper and target specific skin needs, our advanced set is the right option.
The advanced set targets specific skin needs like:
- Clogged pores and dull complexion. The purifying face mask in our advanced set contains bentonite clay and charcoal to deep clean your pores and refresh your face.
- Tired, hungover-looking eyes. Our repairing eye stick (also included in the advanced set) fights fine lines and wrinkles, de-puffs bags under the eyes, and makes dark circles disappear.
Sure, you can just use a moisturizer, but to achieve the sexiest skin possible, you need the benefit of a full skin care routine.
Why let Disco take care of your skin? We’re meticulous when it comes to our ingredients. Our products are plant-based, vegan, cruelty-free, and don’t contain parabens or sulfates. We take skin care (not ourselves) very seriously.
