Your Man’s Medicine Cabinet- What Did I Just See?!

Self-confidence and good-health don't always come easily. The greatest outfit in the world doesn't mean much if you're not looking or feeling your best. Something we often forget is that men need to feel healthy and confident, too. If you've ever stumbled into your man's medicine cabinet, you've probably come across some products you've never seen before- but don't be alarmed! A lot of times, men have self-care routines of their own. If you're concerned, curious, or even a bit nosy, read on to know more about some of those mysterious products for men that will ease your mind and help you appreciate the work your man puts into his self-care.

Moisturizers

This is one simple, yet important effort men make that we all should follow. With so many different elements, both internally and externally, that impact our skin, moisturizing is one simple step that we can't afford to skip. The best moisturizers for men are created to combat dry skin, prevent aging and balance the pH levels. Applying moisturizer regularly also aids in fighting problems like acne and dry skin, which will in turn give him more youthful skin and a healthy glow.

Hair Thickener

Some products in his medicine cabinet can be associated with a sensitive topic that makes him a bit self-conscious. One study done by the American Hair Loss Association showed that 66% of men will experience hair loss by the age of 35. Despite the stigma around balding, your man is definitely not alone and there is no shame in utilizing treatments for hair loss at a younger age. These treatments will not only delay the hair loss rate but boost his self-confidence and overall happiness.

Beard Oil

Just like shampooing and conditioning the hair on your head, beards should be maintained in a similar manner. Beard oils contain essential and carrier oils that keep his beard clean and healthy along with the skin underneath it. These oils keep the skin beneath the beard hydrated and prevent flaking. Similar to hair loss products, they can also fill in patchy beards and help with styling them as well. Once you come across this product in his medicine cabinet, it'll be comforting to know that your man will have a clean, full beard each day.

Vitamins and Supplements

Vitamins and supplements have so many positive effects on his health and come in lots of different forms with strange names and labels. For example, if there's zinc in his bathroom, he might be trying to maintain his testerone levels. Fish oil is another supplement that promote heart and prostate health and has proven to slow the growth rate of cancer cells. Whey protein can be incorporated into his daily intake to increase strength in the muscles and body. Don't be afraid of these vitamins and supplements with sophisticated names and take note because you might just be able to benefit from them as well.

Anti-Aging Cream

Contrary to popular belief, women are not the only ones who worry about aging. Men develop the same symptoms of age on the skin and there are products specifically geared toward helping men maintain their youthful skin. Anti-aging creams and serums both prevent and fight the appearance of crow's feet, wrinkles and bags under the eyes. These fine lines, wrinkles and bags are inevitable at some point so why not nip it in the bud instead of letting your age get the best of you?

Though unfamiliar, the products a man uses shouldn't unnerve you. Take the time to understand the effort he's putting into certain aspects of his health. If you see something you're unfamiliar with, do some research. Most of the time, you'll discover that some of these lotions, creams and serums are actually pretty common. Plus, you never know, you may just find that you should be taking beauty tips from him.
