During the daytime, the skin of the discerning gent takes on a multitude of attacks from the elements, the underground, your unwashed hands when they touch the face (we’ve all been there) and even the invisible threat of the office air conditioning system. Much like your body uses the night to rest and recharge, so does the skin to repair and regenerate.
Give it a helping hand by investing in a top quality night cream for your skin. Applied after cleansing and exfoliating as part of your grooming routine, a lavish helping of an overnight cream on your face will aid the restoration process and have you glowing with better looking skin each morning. Here is DiscerningGent.com’s pick of the three best night creams available right now.
