You’re a grown ass man, which means doing responsible stuff like taking out the trash, paying your taxes, and – if you’re past your third decade – starting to take care of your health.
And while many of us are starting to eat a little better, drink a little less (maybe?), and are pursuing more active lifestyles, one of the final frontiers for a lot of men is skin care. At one point, those two words would earn any man the pejorative classification of metrosexual. But it’s 2015 now – get over the sexist labels. There’s nothing wrong with staying clean. And there’s certainly nothing manly about zits and skin cancer.
But in a market dominated by LED-washed superstores and overly manicured models, finding something other than your go-to can of Axe body spray and all-in-one shampoo and conditioner can be intimidating and confusing, to say the least.
You don’t need to go to a salon or put cucumber slices on your eyes. Just put down the aerosol can and read on.

Facial Fuel Cleanser, from Kiehl’s
You really should be cleaning your face every day. It seems obvious, but it’s surprising how many guys don’t wash their face. Every day, dead skin cells surface – you need to wash to get off the day’s pollution. Look forward to feeling and looking healthier all day long.

A lot of guys shy away from moisturizer. They think only girls and women should moisturize, but unless you want skin like leather, Kiehl’s Creme de Corps is an all around, non-greasy, hydrating body moisturizer. If you live in a super dry climate, you could probably use this daily. Otherwise, moisturize as necessary.
