Guys matter too!

alright all you manly men out there, unless you're pete wentz, you probably don't wear makeup. even so, your skin should still matter to you. moisturizing should be a daily event in your regimen, and i'm going to share some great moisturizers and tips/tricks so you can all look your best. c'mon, you know you want to look good for the ladies&guys out there.

John Varvatos Hydrating Facial Moisturizer is a really, really great product.

a little pricey ($65) but a little goes a long way, and it'll do wonders to your skin. it's fast absorbing, so no need to wait around while it soaks in, you can put it on and head right out the door. it's also got chamomile and raspberry extracts which help soothe skin irritation.

Clinque M Protect SPF 21

Clinque's moisturizer is also really great, plus it has some spf thrown in there to help you avoid skin damage. the cheapest of the three, this one is priced at $22.

Zirh's protect moisturizer

this daily moisturizer really helps improve skin texture and bring elasticity back to the skin, and also helps to prevent sun damage. Zirh's protect moisturizer retails for $32.50.

NOWWW...i am also a big fan of concealer for men. you don't need to use a lot, and i really only recommend using it under the eyes. it'll totally brighten up your face... you won't look so tired, and it'll also give you a youthful appearance.

Jean Paul Gaultier Concealer

jeal paul gaultier's concealer is one of my favorites. it's only slightly tinted, fragrance free, and relatively inexpensive ($20).

John Varvatos Concealer for Men

this concealer by john varvatos comes in a cream stick form and is really easy to use. it's can help reduce fine lines and it's easy to blend into the skin. retails for $21, which is pretty good.

so men, take care of your skin! you'll thank yourself in 20+ years.
