Men, like women, have now begun taking care of their skin, as the cold winter is turning out to be harsh for their bodies.

Natalie Semchyshyn, assistant professor of dermatology at Saint Louis University, said that contrary to the popular belief, men’s skin is more sensitive as their skin loses moisture faster. It is also more prone to dryness and doesn’t exfoliate as much.She said that using a product that has natural oatmeal will moisturise and soothe sensitive skin, asserting moisturisers with glycolic or lactic acid in it will keep the skin hydrated and also exfoliate. Oil and milk are other natural moisturisers.For oily skin, Semchyshyn recommends using a cleanser with glycolic or salicylic acid, as these help exfoliate and balance the skin.

Winter can be ruthless on the skin, more so if you shower multiple times a day, says Semchyshyn. It’s important to moisturise the skin and use a cleanser that doesn’t dry your skin.
