To smell good all day long, you don’t need to spray yourself with perfume. Try men’s skin and body care products that leave you with a subtle yet masculine scent. Here's a roundup of products to make part of your daily routine.
Lotion or after-shave balm?
After-shave care products are excellent and bring comfort to your skin, while leaving a delicate scent. They calm, soothe and heal razor burn and micro-cuts brought on by manual or electric shaving.
The lotion and balm are applied by gently dabbing – they are non-sticky. Lotion is ideal for normal to oily skin. If you have normal to dehydrated skin, the balm is a better choice because of its moisturizing effect. For sensitive skin, choose a balm without alcohol to treat your skin gently.
To protect your skin during the day, apply a moisturizer in the morning and at night as part of your daily routine. A weekly exfoliation is also suggested to rid yourself of ingrown hairs.
Body and hair gel
Body and hair cleansers are ideal and extremely convenient for active men. Designed to clean the body and wash the hair, this foaming cleanser prepares the skin to receive eau de toilette and leaves a delicate scent on the whole body. Slip them into your sports bag or travel kit!
Several product lines offer a deodorant as part of their eau de toilette line. It’s the ideal complement to your masculine ritual. If you prefer antiperspirants, you can apply an odourless one under your perfumed deodorant.
Moisturizing body milk
Few product lines offer a perfumed moisturizing milk for men. If your fragrance line does not make a moisturizer, choose an odourless cream and spray your eau de toilette on top. Your moisturized skin will capture the scent and make it longer-lasting.
Eau de toilette
Spray eau de toilette on pulse points (behind the ears, inner elbows, behind the knees and on the wrists). Choose 4 to 6 points. Never apply eau de toilette by dabbing it on your face. Its high alcohol concentration could dry your skin and accelerate aging. For the face, use an after-shave lotion or a balm.
