The best moisturisers for men with dry skin

What’s the best moisturiser for men with dry skin? To make it easy for men to find the best organic face cream for their skin type we’re sharing our top product picks for men with dry skin.

 

What do men with dry skin need in their grooming routine?

If you’re a man with dry skin, you might find that your skin feels tight or looks flaky and chapped. To combat this, you’ll need to incorporate at least two facial products into your organic grooming regime.

  1. A NATURAL EXFOLIATING FACE SCRUB FOR MEN

A natural face scrub should be used 2-3 times a week and will help the skin to shed dry, dead skin cells. Using a face scrub regularly will also help the skin to better absorb male face creams and, when used before shaving, the bamboo and cranberry extracts used in our No.1 Exfoliating Face Scrub will help to lift hairs from the face, giving a smoother shave.

  1. A FACE CREAM FOR MEN WITH DRY SKIN

There’s lots of products that men can use to hydrate dry, flaky skin but, for most men, the best moisturising product will contain a range of plant oils that naturally nourish the skin and bind water to the surface.

 

The best organic moisturiser for shavers

If you shave regularly, it’s important to note that, each time you shave, your skin will feel a little drier. This is because when you shave your facial hair, you also remove some skin cells and natural oils from the skin. This can cause a change to the skin’s pH and cause irritation like shaving rash. Some synthetic ingredients used in shaving foams, like SLS and ethanol alcohol, can also leave male skin feeling dry.

To combat dry skin after shaving, apply a cooling moisturiser post-shave. Aloe Vera and Shea butter are very effective for hydrating and soothing the skin and should be key ingredients in your post-shave face cream.

For an everyday organic face cream for men that shave, we recommend the No.3 Cooling Moisturiser. This skin-calming moisturiser is suitable for all male skin types, including dry skin, and is an ideal choice for men concerned about preventing razor burn. It also contains Black Willow Bark extract which is naturally anti-inflammatory and is the best natural ingredient for male skin that’s prone to blemishes.

The best moisturising product for men with beards

Men with beards can also use a moisturiser to relieve dry skin but might get more for their money by using our multi-tasking beard oil.

Our Taming Beard Oil conditions your facial hair and is also packed with vitamin-rich ingredients which can relive and protect dry, chapped skin, plus Tea Tree to calm ingrown hairs and blemishes. Dispense a few drops into the palm of your hand then either scrunch it into your beard, or tap it into clean, dry, skin.

The best moisturiser for men with dry sensitive skin

Dry skin often occurs because the skin is not producing enough of a naturally occurring oil called sebum. Although men's skin is naturally oilier than women's, it will still start to become drier after the age of 30 as your skin’s sebum production rate changes.

Men with sensitive skin will typically produce less sebum and, to avoid dryness, you may need to take extra care to avoid products that contain ingredients known to irritate the skin, such as synthetic fragrance or skin-drying alcohols.

If your skin is ultra-sensitive, always opt for a Scent Free Moisturiser such as our gender-neutral Scent Free Light Day Moisturiser. This fragrance-free, organic face cream contains anti-inflammatory actives and is ideal for male skin that is easily irritated by skin care, or prone to breakouts.

Men with dry and sensitive skin can also benefit from using a facial serum for men. Like moisturisers, serums are applied to the skin to deliver intense hydration. They have a slightly lighter texture than most face creams and this helps them to sink deeper into the skin where they can provide hydrating nourishment.

The best skin care for men that work outdoors

Men who work outside are particularly at risk of dry skin. This is because dry skin can be aggravated by environmental factors such as strong sunshine, wind, cold, extremes of temperature and atmospheric pollutants, all of which strip the skin of moisture.

Outdoor workers also regularly expose their skin to sunlight so should apply our high-factor Scent Free Facial Sun Cream SPF30 every 2-3 hours during daylight hours. It’s non-irritating, antioxidant-rich and provides effective sun protection against both UVA and UVB rays.

To protect against pollutant damage, use our No.1 Exfoliating Face Scrub 2-3 times a week. It’s packed with pollution-protecting antioxidants and contains Bentonite Clay to draw toxins from the skin.

Do men need to apply a moisturiser at night?

The skin repairs itself at night so men with dry skin should try to get plenty of sleep.

Always wash the face before going to sleep as this will help the skin to breathe overnight and, if your skin is dry, it may be best to avoid washing the face with soaps made with skin-drying SLS.

Our No.2 Soothing Shave Gel is SLS-free and makes a great facial wash alternative to drying soaps. Simply massage it into the face for a minute or two, then rinse off any excess.

To help the skin restore itself whilst you sleep, apply the No. 7 Antioxidant Repair Serum before bed. It’s packed with antioxidant-rich plants that hydrate and replenish the skin whilst you sleep.
