__38. The Three-Step Skin-Care Regimen
Part 1: Face Wash
Keeping your complexion looking fresh doesn't have to be complicated. Here's the easy way.__
Although many guys opt to use the same soap above the neck as they use to wash their bodies, a cleanser made specifically for your face is crucial to eliminating dryness and irritation. "Using a soap like Dial on your face strips it of natural oils and makes you look tired and wrinkly," says Dr. David Colbert, a dermatologist and the founder of the New York Dermatology Group. Look for a mild wash with ingredients like vitamin E and aloe, which will leave your skin moisturized, not depleted. The newest versions come in bar form, like the Anthony Logistics for Men Glycerin Cleansing Bar or the new two-in-one Dove Men+Care Body and Face Bars. Don't worry if your face doesn't feel tight—what you may think of as squeaky-clean—after you scrub it. "Squeaky-clean means you're hurting your skin," Dr. Colbert says.
