While rosehip seed oil has long been a natural beauty staple for women, men have yet to widely adopt and experience its remarkable skin care benefits.  There is no reason men can’t implement rosehip seed oil into their grooming routines.  Rosehip seed oil is packed with essential fatty acids, including omega-6 and omega-3, as well as pro-vitamin A, all of which contribute to smoother, healthier skin.  Here are three simple ways guys can use rosehip seed oil to achieve a better complexion:

  1. Rosehip Seed Oil as an Aftershave
    Once you’re done shaving, rinse and pat dry your face.  Next, rub a couple drops of rosehip seed oil between your fingertips and palms and gently apply to your cheeks, chin, neck, and area around your mouth.
  2. Rosehip Seed Oil as a Daytime Moisturizer
    Rosehip seed oil will keep your skin properly moisturized throughout the day when applied every morning.  After every face wash, simply rub a couple drops between the fingertips and palms and gently apply to all areas of the face, paying particular attention to areas susceptible to fine lines and creases.
  3. Rosehip Seed Oil as a Nighttime Moisturizer/Anti-Aging Serum
    When used every night before bedtime, rosehip seed oil produces a noticeable improvement in facial complexion and skin tone.  Wash your face very night with water or a mild cleanser to get rid dirt and debris accumulated throughout the day. Next, rub a couple drops between the fingertips and palms and gently apply to all areas of the face and neck. Don’t forget to moisturize your forehead as well.  Follow these steps and you will wake up flake-free with a confident glow.

Adopting rosehip seed oil into your daily skin care routine might take a little time to get used to, but the results are undoubtedly worth it.  If you’re constantly battling a dry face and uneven complexion, maybe it’s time you consider ditching what you’re using as a moisturizer and experience the natural skin care wonder that is rosehip seed oil.  May this bit of advice help you achieve greater confidence.  Cheers!

Apricot Kernel Oil is an effective, all-natural way to regulate your skin’s oil production.  High in essential fatty acids and vitamins A, C, and E, this light oil is ideal for oily and normal skin types.  Apricot Kernel Oil also works well on mature skin, especially on the areas around the eyes and throat, because of its tightening and astringent properties.  When purchasing natural beauty oils, be sure they are cold- or expeller-pressed.  I also recommend buying natural beauty oils that come in amber-colored bottles.  The colored bottles help protect the precious oils from light, thus maintaining the oil’s effectiveness.

Every Man Jack Age Defying Eye Cream Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $ (under $10) – Available at Every Man Jack and Drugstore.com.
Scent: no noticeable fragrance.
I Like: how the product effectively reduces puffiness around the eyes.  Convenient packaging with a pump dispenser.
Not a fan of: how long it can take to notice lessening dark circles.

As I get older, I’m noticing more fine lines and puffiness around my eyes.  Thankfully, Every Man Jack recently released their Age Defying Eye Cream for those of us battling tired-looking eyes – not all of us can successfully pull off the puffy-eyed, constantly stoned look like Johnny Depp and still look like a million bucks.  At just under ten dollars, Every Man Jack’s Age Defying Eye Cream is a reasonably priced, effective moisturizer that works well at reducing the appearance of fine lines and puffiness.  The area around my eyes felt firmer and refreshed immediately after applying the product.  The cream is light, non-greasy, and absorbs easily into the skin.  I haven’t noticed a big decrease in dark circles, but I expect that to change with regular use.

Zirh Restore Herbal Eye Cream Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★

Scent: nothing noticeable.
I Like: how this eye cream reduces puffiness.  Feels slightly cool upon application.
Not a fan of: the paraben preservatives.

A good eye cream is hard to find.  Many claim to reduce puffy eyes and dark circles, but few actually deliver on that promise.  Zirh’s Restore Herbal Eye Cream worked well at minimizing the appearance of my puffy eyes, but I didn’t notice a significant difference in my dark circles.  This product contains a number of skin-benefiting ingredients including extracts of cucumber, chamomile, calendula, aloe, and pine bark, as well as caffeine.  A one-ounce tube should last at least two months as you only need to apply just a little amount of the eye cream.  Use Zirh’s Restore Herbal Eye Cream any time you need to refresh the area around your eyes.

Argan oil for acne, skin, face, hair and more. Beta Naturals Argan Oil review.

Beta Naturals 100% Pure Organic Argan Oil

Argan oil for acne, skin, face, hair and more. Beta Naturals Argan Oil review and ingredients.

Beta Naturals 100% Pure Organic Argan Oil Ingredients

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$ ($10-$20) – Available at Beta Naturals and Amazon.
Scent: None.
I like: how well this product moisturizes without leaving your skin greasy. It is all-natural and absorbs easily into the skin.
Not a fan of: nothing.  This is a phenomenal versatile moisturizer that works particularly well for those with dry skin.

Argan oil might be the single most nourishing natural skin care ingredient available on the market.  My research into this awesome extract eventually led me to launch a skin care company.  Prior to starting Beta Naturals,  I couldn’t find a lot of information relating to men on the use of argan oil.  If you’re a guy and this is the first time you’re hearing about argan oil, then it is my absolute pleasure to educate you on its benefits.  I love how versatile Beta Naturals Pure Argan Oil is.  I use it in the morning as a naturally soothing aftershave and before bed as a nighttime moisturizer for the face and eye area.  The high vitamin e content in this product helps the skin recover quickly from shaving.  Essential fatty acids make Beta Naturals Argan Oil an ideal anti-aging product as well.  Don’t let the word “oil” fool you into thinking it is thick and greasy – on the contrary, the consistency of the product is very light and absorbs easily into the skin.  Any initial shine dissipates quickly.  It does not clog pores and works well at regulating oil production – my skin does not overcompensate and produce excess oil whenever I use the product.  Beta Naturals Pure Argan Oil has no scent, nutty or otherwise, and won’t interfere with any fragrances you might be wearing.  The one ounce bottle may seem small, but it packs a punch – a little goes a very long way in moisturizing – I usually just rub 1-2 drops between the fingertips and apply.  Now that I have opened your eyes to the wonderful world of Beta Naturals 100% Pure Organic Argan Oil, are adventurous enough to try it?

Scent: Fragrance Free
I Like: the sun and wind protection this product provides. Keeps lips and area around the eyes properly nourished.
Not a fan of: the petroleum and paraben preservative ingredients. 

Whether you’re hitting the slopes or the surf, Anthony Logistics for Men’s Sun Stick SPF 15 is a reliable companion.  Use it on the lips and the area around the eyes to keep them from getting burned.  Because the sun protection factor on this product is relatively low, you’ll need to reapply it at least once every 1-2 hours.  The size of the stick is large (0.6 ounces) compared to traditional lip balms (0.15 ounces) and therefore harder to lose.  Use it to avoid the dreadful face burn the next time you’re exposed to the sun for a prolonged period of time.
