Men’s skin is not very different from women’s, except that it is thicker, oilier and ages differently. Washing your face every day and after exercise is very important. Men should keep in mind to use moisturizers and ant-ageing products that are light and not too greasy.

Sensitive skin is skin that is easily irritated by factors that are usually well-tolerated by normal skin. In some people this may be a permanent condition and in others it is triggered by internal or external factors.
If you have sensitive skin, products with natural ingredients such as aloevera and argan oil will be your best bet. Stick to fragrance-free products. Choose products with minimal ingredients and avoid products with alcohol content, AHAs or retinoids as they may irritate the skin.
Moisturize! Moisturize! Moisturize! Avoid hot water baths as hot water washes off the essential oils on the skin. Make it a habit to apply moisturizer immediately after bathing. Choose mild soaps with added oils. Consult your dermatologist for a cream that contains lactic acid or urea to keep the skin moisturized.
Wash your face with the right cleanser morning, evening and after exercise. Use oil-free and non comedogenic skin care products and make-up. Use a water-based, light moisturizer. Use blotting papers throughout the day.
