Face Wash for Men - Your Ultimate Guide

A skincare routine is not just necessary but is a demand in these times when your skin is exposed to so much dirt, dust, and other environmental aggressors. The pollution within the surroundings contributes to skin aging and oxidative stress which weakens the skin's barrier and triggers inflammation. When you scrub away the excess sebum from your face, it helps to keep acne and dull skin at bay.

Dermatologists agree that using a face wash is akin to a medical dosage for the skin, just as vital as any other medicine. Itchy, reddish, dry skin, or acne produced by blackheads and whiteheads on your face, is a serious problem for your social and personal life.

However, deciding the best face wash to use may be a real brain teaser, especially if you are unaware of your skin type because everyone's skin is different, and that's what we'll be looking at - what type of face wash to use for different skin types.

First, you need to know your skin type

Almost everyone has a broad concept of what skin type they have, but only a small percentage of people manage their skin according to its needs. Your skin, like the rest of your body, needs a healthy diet and good nutrition with regular cleansing.

If your skin appears greasy and sticky, with shiny spots, you have oily skin, which means your skin is susceptible to regular breakouts, making it acne prone.

You have dry skin if your skin gets rough and scaly with slight tightness every time you take a shower. If your skin gets irritated and red accompanied by dryness, you have dry and sensitive skin.

A combination skin type is when you feel your cheeks are dry but the T-zone of the face keeps oily. T-zone includes your forehead, nose, and chin and the excess of sebum secretion in this area enlarges the pore size.

Now that you have a better understanding and can gauge what your skin type is, you will be able to select the best face wash suitable to your needs.

Face Wash for Dry Skin type

Don’t get a facial cleanser that is loaded with chemicals and soapy formulas because this is a tricky skin type. Choose something that retains the natural moisture of your skin and the ingredients should be natural like Shea butter, Aloe vera, Olive oil, and Cocoa butter which are effective. Basically, the thing is to buy that facewash which has some oil content in it so that it can add that oil to your skin while cleansing it.

Face Wash for Oily Skin type

This skin type is the most prone to acne and requires extra care to avoid breakouts. Charcoal, Neem, Tea Tree, Salicylic acid, and Benzoyl Peroxide are some of the ingredients that help keep acne-causing bacteria away and unclog pores. Summertime makes it a season where you need to take extra care because the oil secretion is doubled, as the oil finds its way out with moisture and sweat. Because your body produces perspiration to maintain body temperature, using a face wash to keep your skin cool is essential.

Face Wash for Combination skin

For men with this skin type, the first and only choice should be a face wash that does not upset the pH balance of their skin, and just be sure to pick a dermatologically tested product with a mild formula. Aloe vera and chamomile combats dryness and dullness and gets rid of extra oiliness without stripping the essential nutrients.
