Do you use a different moisturizer before bed than you do in the morning?

    I don't at the moment use moisturiser but am considering it as im in my mid 20s - might delay the aging process a bit.

    Fuck me, does every thread have to be met with a sarcasm and derision. This place run by teenagers or something?

    I have dry hands....like crackly dry. I use some Vaseline aloe stuff on them. Then I rub my face with my hands. Then I'm moisturised. This is called being a boy.

    Sunscreen that blocks UVA rays is the best thing for delaying aging. 80% of wrinkles are caused by sun damage.

    The sarcasm and derision comes not from using a moisturizer, but rather asking other men about using a different moisturizer before bed. One moisturizer should be sufficient for your purposes, unless you go with a ylang-scented lotion in the morning, and a lavender-scented cream in the evening, with some unscented body butter hidden in your sock drawer so you don't get found out while rubbing one out. But the broader issue is that men shouldn't be too pretty or look like they worked at their grooming. you nance.

    Moisturising is a good thing for men, don't knock it guys! I don't moisturise too often at this stage (only after I've showered, after I'm done with toner or cleanser) but I'm not barely going on 20 at this stage, so it would be redundant on me in other situations. Remember, maintenance is good, as long as you don't act like a prissy little b*tch about it (don't whine when something seems a little off, don't go around bragging about it and ffs don't spend a long time doing it). BTW, using 2 different kinds of moisturisers is DEFINITELY prissy.

    You're aware that the vast majority of posters here are male, aren't you?

    You gentlemen seem to be confusing moisturizer with makeup. Moisturizer, however, is a skin care product, not a cosmetic. Perhaps you're also the kind of men who won't wear pink because you think it's a girl's color.

    To the OP: I like Neutrogena products. I use one of their moisturizers with sunscreen in the morning after shaving, and I use another one in the evening, called Night, that contains retinol instead of sunscreen. And because I'm especially prissy, I also use a third moisturizer that's just for the delicate skin right under my eyes. Supposedly, it helps reduce the dark circles.

Perhaps you're also the kind of men who won't wear pink because you think it's a girl's color. To the OP: I like Neutrogena products. I use one of their moisturizers with sunscreen in the morning after shaving off my 1 facial hair follicle, and I use another one in the evening, called Night, that contains other stuff my skin doesn't really need. And because I'm especially prissy, I also use a push-up bra with inbuilt moisturiser dispensers to protect the delicate skin around the nipples.
    ftfy. BTW, no offence intended, I actually am a strong advocate of mens maintenance and moisturise regularly, but fgs, unless you are in your middle age, you shouldn't use more than one kind (overdoing it, hard), and if you are in your middle age, then it may be good, but it's not necessary. Also, I don't wear pink, but that's purely because I've tried it on repeated times and it goes terribly with my skin.

    If there's anything I like about homophobes, it's your predictability. You can always be counted on to take the bait, and you always project your own repressed homo-erotic fantasies on people who challenge you.

    The poor OP asked a simple question about moisturizers, and no fewer than three manly men elbowed their way in to assure him that while using one moisturizer is good, using two will change his gender. That's good stuff. You guys crack me up.

    i needed some moisturiser at an airport, i bought some olay night moisturiser cos it was 70% off. the instructions say to apply to face, neck and "decolletage" which makes me feel funny in my pants.

    BTW, If you've noticed much of my other posts you will notice I am not particularly homophobic, in fact I'm bisexual (let's not forget I'm on styleforvm, too). Also, in regards to my response, let's not forget the last part, it was actual advice, and advice that will do good. Men's skin seriously does not need much moisturisation until around middle age, about once a day will do until at least the 30s, and any more (moisturising) than that wouldn't be good for a young person's skin, IMO.

    As for cracking you up, I'll take that as a compliment, thanks.

    I use whatever my girl is using that day. As long as it doesn't smell like flowers.

    not even ball-cleavage?

    Now, for THAT I use a different moisturizer, usually at night unless I'm moisturizing early in the morning before the rest of the house wakes up. In that case I furtively reach for an unmarked jar of...wait, what were we talking about again?
