Despite skin being the body’s largest, most external organ, most men don’t tend to see professionals about how to care for it daily, says Amy Wechsler, MD and Chanel consulting dermatologist. Sure, they’ll go in for the occasional bouts with acne, wrinkles, worrisome growths, and hair loss, but most, she argues, “feel that dermatology is more for women.”
“We all share some common issues, such as a need for sun protection,” Wechsler says. “But many skin issues are unique to men, like beards causing ingrown hairs and acne.” As such, men’s problems need to be treated in specific ways. Here, Wechsler shares her picks for the best products, tools, and advances in skin made for every man who wants to look and feel his best.
