Do men need to use skincare products?

Dr. Mehmet Oz, MD

Men need skincare products just as much as women do to look and feel healthy. These products don't need to be expensive or fancy. Two of the most important skincare needs are to moisturize and to protect yourself from sun damage. It's a good idea to use a moisturizing lotion and to make sure that you use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 30 or higher. Also, consider using a mild cleanser that contains moisturizing ingredients, to help prevent skin dryness. Talk to your dermatologist for more information.
