Some of the best anti-aging skincare products come in feminine packaging or are dosed with flowery scents. If you're a man, this can turn you off of such products, even though your wrinkled, damaged skin needs nourishment and moisturizing. Thankfully, several companies offer effective anti-aging facial creams designed just for men.

This includes antioxidants like vitamin E, which help limit wrinkles and other damage caused by free radicals, and effective moisturizers. Additional beneficial ingredients include licorice extract, allantoin and silicone.
Kiehl's Lycopene Facial Moisturizing Lotion
Kiehl's lycopene-enhanced facial cream doesn't have any feminine scents and comes in masculine-looking packaging. But it's about more than just appearances. "Shape" magazine gave it top marks for its "age-defying" characteristics, thanks to antioxidants like vitamin E and a form of wrinkle-fighting vitamin A. These two antioxidants may help combat numerous signs of aging, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center.
