Two of the most important skincare products that every man should use are moisturizer and sunscreen. If you don't normally use moisturizer, consider using an aftershave that contains moisturizers. When you plan to be outdoors for any period, use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 30. According to a poll from the American Academy of Dermatology, while 65% of men used sunscreen when outdoors, only 5% use it every day. Also, consider using a mild cleanser that contains moisturizing ingredients, to help prevent skin dryness. Talk to your dermatologist for more information.
