When it comes to grooming, most products for men and women are not created equally. This is because men and women tend to have different skin tones and textures. Even though you'll likely stick to your beauty products and skin care items when it comes to looking your best, there are a few products for guys that ladies can feel good about using.
Masks and scrubs
Sure, you probably have a slew of purifying, relaxing and other masks in your bathroom to use when you're feeling less than stellar. According to Cosmopolitan magazine, certain masks for men can also be used by their better halves, so feel free to use a mask or facial scrub like the Elemis Energising Skin Scrub 75ml if you've ran out.
A scrub like this helps exfoliate your skin perhaps better than products made for women. On the same note, its gentle ingredients like vitamin E and marine Phytoplankton help to keep your skin feeling smooth and baby soft.
Razors and shaving creams
It's no secret that for some reason, guys' razors seem to be sharper and better than ones made for ladies. This is why it's probably safe to say that you've used your guy's razor or shaving cream from time to time. One of the best products to take from your guy is a pre-shave oil, the experts report.
Products like Elemis Smooth Result Shave Oil 35ml help prepare the skin and the hair for shaving. The mix of vitamins and herbal oils works to loosen up the hair and moisturize the skin to ensure shaving is less painful. Oils like these can also be a great option for soothing dry skin on your elbows, knees and other skin sensitive areas.
Since guys tend to have drier facial skin due to shaving on the regular, it might not come as much of a surprise that their moisturizers pack a punch. Because of this, you may benefit from wearing a dab or two of his go-to product on days when your complexion could use some love - think a super dry winter day.
Another plus, most men's skin care products are made with ingredients like citrus to help wake guys up in the morning - the same benefits are sure to be felt if you try out your guy's daily face wash.
If you're a bit worried about using your guy's products, don't fret, Wise Geek blog reports most products are made with similar ingredients, just with different scents.
