The skincare routine you follow should depend on your skin type. Although some men don't bother to use moisturizers, they are essential for combating skin dryness and aging. If you find it hard to remember to put on sunscreen, you may want to find a moisturizer that also contains a sunscreen. Ingredients in cleansers marketed for men vary widely from one manufacturer to another.
