What Skin Care Products Should Men Use?

Dr Schweiger notes, “our male patients have started to become more interested in their skincare routine."  Over the past few years, cosmetic procedures for men have increased sharply and skincare has followed suit.  Men want simple and effective anti-aging routines that they can stick with for years.”  So what products should men look for?  Men need similar anti-aging products to women; they need a great sunscreen, cleanser, moisturizer and possibly a retinoid to use in the evening.  However, men generally look for products that are easy to apply, dry quickly and do not leave a greasy residue.  Men often prefer light moisturizing sunscreens, such as Elta MD Sport.  Many men like to use products that provide two skincare steps in one, so a sunscreen that also moisturizes is perfect.  Gentle cleansers are usually sufficient; men do not crave that foamy effect that is so important for women to cleanse away thick layers of makeup.   Many nighttime moisturizers that men love, such as Dr. Schweiger’s own CompleteME PM, have little fragrance and do not leave a sheen after application.  Retinoids and even antioxidant serums are appropriate for men; these ingredients stimulate skin cell turnover and provent collagen breakdown.  Both men and women are looking to keep their skin healthy and youthful.  It is important for both sexes to have a great skincare routine to follow, though men may be looking for different qualities in their products than women want.  For more information on skin care and cosmetic procedures for men, click here.
