There seems to be a general idea going around that men get better with age. Dating? Sure. Maturity? You bet. Skin? Not so much. While men do age slightly slower than women (you can thank your thick skin for that), they’re still subject to the same intrinsic and extrinsic factors that cause volume loss, fine lines, discolouration, and sagging skin. And according to the US National Library of Medicine, wrinkling can start as young as 25 for some men thanks to a lack of hydration, a breakdown of collagen, a loss of subcutaneous fat and 90% of the time: the sun.
‘So, if we age slower than women, then why is my girlfriend’s skin so much smoother than mine?’ you ask.
Well, one thing that women do have on us, is a hack that we’re still not so great at: prevention. Aka, hitting those wrinkles before they even appear. And thanks to men’s health platform Mosh, we now have an affordable, easy and tailored way to up our game.
Here are 4 reasons you should be giving prescription anti-ageing skincare a go.
It’s tailored for you
One thing that stops most guys from getting into the skincare game, is the overwhelming amount of products to choose from. Collagen? Oily T-zone? Anti-shine? I mean, even the most clued-up guy would be confused.
And sure, you’re probably thinking ‘but isn’t going to see a dermatologist just as overwhelming?’
Well, when it comes to Mosh’s prescription skincare for anti-ageing, you don’t even have to visit the doctor’s office. All you have to do is jump on their website, fill out a simple quiz and a doctor will get in touch with you via text, call or video chat to confirm the treatment plan is right for you.
Then a personalised skincare kit will be delivered to your doorstep.
You’re actually going to notice a change
With anti-ageing medication, you might notice smoother, more evenly toned skin in as early as 6-8 weeks, however, it can take up to 3-6 months of regular use before improvements in wrinkles are apparent.
You will get ongoing support
Have a random question pop to mind? Or just want to understand the process better? When you opt in to Mosh’s prescription treatment you will get ongoing support from their doctors, who you can text or video call any time.
It can be affordable too!
Mosh subscription service starts at just $40 a month, and you can pay in weekly, fortnightly or monthly instalments for your 3 months subscription period. Or, you can also just pay for 3 months up front in the beginning of every subscription period. Not bad.
If you’re still not sold, Mosh also has a non-prescription range that will make finding the ultimate skincare trio as easy as going to this link. The products target dark circles, impurities and ageing, and will arrive at your door every 3-months via their subscription service.
