Q: My boyfriend won’t use my creams because he thinks they smell too “girly.” Are there any good anti-aging products for men? He has crow’s feet and fine lines.
MyChelle Dermaceuticals licensed esthetician Catie Wiggy responds:
Yes, there are absolutely some good anti-aging products for men (and, good job for taking care of your guy!). Men tend to shy away from skin care products because the scents are predominately targeted to women.
I recommend looking for products that are unscented, fragrance free or formulated for sensitive skin (because these products also tend to be fragrance free). MyChelle offers a variety of unscented products, but the one you’re looking for is the Unscented Supreme Polypeptide Cream.
This unscented, nutrient-rich recontouring cream lifts and retexturizes skin for a more refined, youthful appearance. It contains Matrixyl® synthe’6™, which has been shown to reduce wrinkle volume by 21 percent and wrinkle depth by 19 percent in eight weeks. Proteasyl® TP Pea Peptide is clinically proven to improve skin’s elasticity, increasing overall firmness by 35 percent in just six weeks.
You just might find yourself dipping into your boyfriend’s cream if you get this product!
