Hi ladies
How do you feel about guys using skin care product (not just sunblock or pimple medicine) but like using a facial mask. Stuff that you would use at the spa.

Key points:
1. I am totally straight and would totally like a girlfriend (assuming we are compatible)
2. I don't hate gay guys but I think it can hurt my chances if I am seen as gay (sad, i know)
3. Skin care product does not mean makeup. I don't put stuff on my skin to look good temporarily

Examples of stuff I use:
Whitening mask, couperose mask, moisture retention stuff, and a golden paste thingy

I am in my late 20s so I am targeting a similar audience here but all opinions are welcome.

Thanks

whitening mask? That's lame.

But good skin is attractive for everyone.

You lost points for skin lightening. I have no problem with men who do masks and care about their skin.

I would think that they are gay, or either excessively self-absorbed. JMHO

Men are increasingly using facial skincare products, so don't feel you're alone in that. I'm biased because I am in the beauty industry, but I'd see nothing wrong with it. Your skin needs to be taken care of and least you'll age well! I don't know what sexual orientation has to do with it-- I find that a pretty outdated opinion.

My husband uses facial skincare products. Namely a face wash, moisturizer, and under eye gel. He has a spot cream for any rare breakouts he gets also. I obviously bought these for him, but he religiously asks for more when he runs out (the company I work for makes the brand he uses).

Nothing wrong with it, IMO.

This is how I feel on all levels. And the thinking of men as metrosexual or even gay for taking care of their skin is outdated. Men should be taking care of their skin, period.

I have no opinions of guys using skin care products as they would be used when the guy in the bathroom alone, thus his business, and no one else's.

Dragging my guy.... kicking and screaming.... into a skin-care regime.

Good skin care should be for everyone.
