Common mistakes when using body cream for men

As expert professionals in men's skin care, our goal is to provide you with the best information to help you keep your skin healthy and radiant.

Many men make mistakes when using body cream . In this article, we describe the most common ones.

If you avoid these mistakes, you will have radiant skin all year round.

Mistake 1: Not using body cream regularly

One of the most common mistakes many men make is underestimating the importance of a regular body care routine. The skin on the body also needs hydration and nutrition to stay healthy.

If you apply body cream only when your body feels itchy due to lack of hydration, it is too late. Lack of regular hydration causes your skin to gradually dry out in the lower layers and this will cause it to lose collagen and elastin, which in turn will cause the appearance of wrinkles and sagging , as well as a dull tone.

Our Bare Man body cream for men is the ideal choice due to its high-quality, 100% natural ingredients. Formulated specifically for men, and being free of petroleum-derived oils, our body cream penetrates the deepest layers of the skin, providing long-lasting hydration and a soft, smooth appearance.

Mistake 2: Using products with disrespectful ingredients

Some body creams contain chemical ingredients that are not very respectful for your skin, your body and the environment. Our recommendation is that you use a certified organic body cream , as this will ensure that it will be free of petroleum-derived ingredients, free of many controversial preservatives such as parabens, and free of synthetic perfumes.


As we have already mentioned many times, it is essential that your skin care products do not contain oils derived from petroleum (such as paraffins, silicones and Vaseline oils), since it has been proven that these oils end up drying out the skin even more. .

Use a body cream only with vegetable oils , whose fatty acids penetrate better into the lower layers of your skin, in addition to nourishing and regenerating it more effectively.


Mistake 3: Not using a body cream adapted to men's skin

As we have also commented on several occasions, men's skin has specific needs. If you use a cream that is not formulated for men's skin, it may be too greasy for you.

A body cream formulated for men will be absorbed better, providing an optimal degree of hydration and without excess unnecessary fatty oils.

Our Bare Man body cream , thanks to its balanced formulation, provides adequate hydration without causing a greasy sensation, making it an excellent choice for all men.

Mistake 4: Forgetting the importance of post-shave care

If you are one of the men who shaves your legs, chest or any other part of your body, you should not forget that it is essential to hydrate your skin after each shave.

It is well known that razor blades end up unprotecting your skin over time. And if you use an electric clipper, when the hair grows back, it is more "sharp" and can end up irritating the skin.

In both cases, using a good body cream with dermo-protective ingredients like our Bare Man is the perfect solution for your skin care routine.

Mistake 5: Not protecting the skin from the sun and other elements

If you spend time outdoors without protecting your skin from harmful UV rays and other environmental elements, it is essential to apply a good body cream with natural ingredients and antioxidants, like our Bare Man .

Its plant extracts contain vitamins, proteins, phytosterols and other active ingredients ideal for soothing your skin after the sun, and helping to regenerate it.

Mistake 6: Applying too little or too much body cream

Many men tend to apply only a small amount of body cream or avoid larger areas of the body. This can leave parts of the skin dehydrated and lacking nutrients. It is important to apply a sufficient amount of cream to cover all areas of the body that need hydration, especially after a shower, when the skin is most receptive to nutrient absorption.

On the other hand, if you use a 100% natural and quality body cream , that is, it is only formulated with plant extracts and vegetable oils and does not contain petroleum derivatives, surely the amount you should apply will be less than the amount you should Use with an inexpensive conventional cream, whose formulation is composed almost entirely of water.

For this reason, whether in a good natural body cream or any other good quality, organic facial care product, you will notice that a small amount is enough.

Now, the exact amount will depend on the degree of hydration of your skin. We recommend starting with a small amount, and if you notice that your skin is still dry and accepts more cream without feeling greasy, then apply more.

Mistake 7: Not exfoliating before applying body cream

Exfoliation is an essential step to prepare the skin and remove dead cells. Freshly exfoliated skin will absorb the nutrients from your body cream much better.

Of course, remember that exfoliation should be once or at most twice a week.

Our X-Foliate with Apricot Seeds is formulated for both facial and body use.

Your combination of scrub plus body cream will help you maintain smoother and more even skin.

Mistake 8: Using products with synthetic perfumes

Unfortunately, most body creams contain synthetic fragrances or perfumes that are not recommended. This would be for another article, but synthetic perfumes contain phthalates, which although they are prohibited in toys that children can put in their mouths, as they are considered endocrine disruptors. However, they are not prohibited in cosmetic and personal care products.

We use fragrances based on 100% pure essential oils, whose smell will also always be rounder and more complete than that of any synthetic perfume.

Haven't they told you yet that Homo Naturals products smell wonderful? Well, it is precisely for this reason.



Mistake 9: Ignoring the specific needs of the skin in different seasons

Men's skin may have different needs depending on the seasons of the year. In winter, the skin tends to be drier and need additional hydration, while in summer, with high temperatures, we are not aware that our skin is drying out due to sun exposure and frequent baths.

So it is essential to maintain a regular body hydration routine . The success in achieving radiant skin is taking care of it regularly, as well as for so many other things in life.

By avoiding these common mistakes and choosing a high-quality natural body cream like our Bare Man , you'll be taking an important step toward effective skin care.

Furthermore, if you always shower with a sulfate-free shower gel and with dermoprotective ingredients like our Manly One , you will maintain healthy, radiant and protected skin at all stages of your life.

Don't underestimate the power of well-cared for skin and feel confident knowing that you are using products designed to enhance your natural beauty.

Your skin will thank you and you will feel better than ever!
