Do men need to moisturize their skin?

Both men and women can benefit from using a moisturizer to keep their skin healthy and glowing. How you moisturize will depend on your skin type. For example, people with dry skin can benefit from applying moisturizer several times a day, but people with oily skin might need a lightweight moisturizer only once a day. Dermatologists help people of all ages and skin types select moisturizers and other products based on their individual skincare needs.
