10 Best Skincare Buys for Men
A PSA for the gents: While it's perfectly acceptable to borrow (or steal) skincare from girlfriends, wives, roommates or other lady friends, it's actually a better choice to reach for products specifically formulated for men. Why? Because male skin tends to be thicker, oilier, and have more prominent pores than female skin, and although all genders may have similar concerns—fine lines, sun damage, redness and roughness—there are benefits to targeting issues with ingredients and formulations that have been devised with your skin type in mind. An optimal regimen should include a cleanser, an exfoliator, a serum, a lotion, and a sunscreen, with the addition of traditional grooming essentials such as after-shave balm. But no matter whether you're ready for a full routine or simply seeking the closest thing to a one-and-done, these are the best men's skincare buys to get you started.
Because those with a Y chromosome need a little TLC, too.
