Keeping it fresh

Youth - women tend to be obsessed with it, using moisturisers and age-defying cleansers and facial creams to look the way they did at 22. But this is not just a female trend. While it is assumed that men prefer the rugged, masculine look, some are willing to put in a little work to have that Michael Ealy glow at 41.

We do not know their regime, but Flair wanted to find out from men if they would try these age-defying products to keep them 'fresh to death':

I moisturise to keep my skin soft, and if the anti-ageing thing works, I do not see why I should not try it.

- Colin Archer

I moisturise to prevent my face from looking dry, to keep it soft, and then I am always being told that I should. However, when it comes to anti-ageing products, I do not see myself going out and buying it, but if I get it, I might try it.

- Raymond Kelly

Personally, I do not see why I should not use an anti-ageing moisturiser made specifically for men. It's just skin care.

- Danar Royal

During winter, I try to moisturise, but since I tend to forget most of the times, I try to use a soap with moisturising properties. I definitely know that trying an anti-ageing product is not for me. I am older and settled, so keeping fit and eating right is enough for me. Ageing happens.

- Ian Mitchell

I do moisturise and I have considered the anti-ageing creams, but I was not aware of the ones for men, but I would definitely try it. I want to look young, too.

- Oniel Wilson

If my wife were to purchase a moisturiser for me, I know I would forget to use it.

- Daive Richards

No, I would not. Maybe when 'mid-life crisis' hits I will start doing all these crazy things like riding motorcycles and all these things, including anti ageing products.

- Carey Patterson

Moisturising is not something I am accustomed to, so using an anti-ageing cream is not something that I would do. If a girlfriend bought it, I would end up using it once and forgetting about it after.

- Dominic Williams

If I got the anti-ageing cream, I would use it, but I personally think that it is a waste of money, so I would not go out of my way to purchase it.

- Windward Lawrence Junior

I do not moisturise at all, and I do not see the need to try an age-defying cream for men.
