Q: My man is really picky when it comes to his skin care products. Should he be?
MyChelle Dermaceuticals licensed esthetician Catie Wiggy responds:
When it comes to skin care, men and women have very different needs. So, yes, being selective about products is a good idea—especially for men who are prone to breakouts or have sensitive skin.
In general, men’s skin tends to be thicker, rougher and oilier than women’s skin. Men also have facial hair to deal with, which can lead to sensitivities and issues triggered by shaving.
Most men like simplicity, and MyChelle has a wide array of products to benefit men while keeping things easy. A few top picks include:
MyChelle Fruit Enzyme Scrub. Perfect for guys who suffer from ingrown facial hairs or rough skin, this microscrub quickly exfoliates dead skin cell buildup and clears away unwanted debris in pores.
Ultra Hyaluronic Hydrating Serum. This lightweight yet super-moisturizing serum is a great alternative to traditional moisturizers. It contains multiple ingredients that work together to prevent moisture loss and improve smoothess.
