These products are recommended by renowned dermatologist Dr. Benabio, read some very useful tips and advice for Menīs skincare below.

Dr. Benabios Tips for Menís Skincare

Key insight: Menís skincare is a trending topic. Facebook and Twitter have become great forums for skincare discussion (Twitter @DermDoc), guys can crowd-source recommendations and learn about products designed for them. For example, check out @DoveMenCare conversations range from how family vacations to playing a favorite sport can take a toll on your skin). With a plethora of new menís products on the market, itís important to be informed.

1. Lather, rinse, simplify! Since some men donít like using a loofah in the shower, itís important to simplify the body washing process with a product that lathers easily, like Dove Men+Care Clean Comfort Body and Face Wash. The products are formulated using ultra-light micromoisture technology, a unique gel technology that activates on skin during lather to guard against discomfort.

2. Itís ok to the soap. Guys often rely on a generic bar of soap (or worse, shampoo), to wash their body. These products are too harsh and strip essential oils from skin. Also, the dryness caused by soap is cumulative Ė the more you use it, the worse it becomes. Dove Men+Care Clean Comfort Body and Face Wash is clinically proven to fight skin dryness with no irritation or tightness.

3. Donít forget your feet. Feet are the most ignored body part in the shower, which can lead to Athleteís Foot or staph. Prevention can be as easy as rubbing hand sanitizer on feet (especially before hitting a shower at your gym), which will kill off infections. (Itís important to rub in sanitizer for at least sixty seconds or until all the alcohol has fully evaporated for it to really work!)

4. Leg sensitivity. The skin on your legs is particularly prone to eczema, winter dermatitis, and other forms of skin irritation so when youíre in the shower, use products like Dove Men+Care Sensitive Clean Body and Face Wash with a pH neutral formula that guarantees a gentle, comforting clean for men prone to skin irritations.

5. Itís not the socks! Men often attribute dry skin on their feet to their socks. Since feet skin is sensitive and prone to dryness, itís important to use a personal wash that thoroughly cleanses skin while fighting dryness, like Dove Men+Care Body and Face Bar, which contains Doveís signature ľ moisturizing cream.

6. Choose a deodorant like you choose a mate. About half of men experience some form of underarm discomfort, which is usually the result of a harsh deodorant. Itís best to switch to deodorants that are non-irritating and/or hypoallergenic Ė try out a few different brands until you find one that works best with your skin. Dove Men+Care antiperspirants and deodorants, for example, are specifically formulated with non-irritating and hydrating ingredients to help combat dryness. (And never treat with rubbing alcohol or hydrogen peroxide to "disinfectĒ the trouble spots Ė the problem is almost never an infection, itís usually a contact irritation.)

7. Different seasons, different skincare needs. Your skin has alternating requirements, based on the season. Over the summer, itís important to apply sunscreen to protect skin from the harsh summer sun, while in the winter, dryness becomes the big issue so be sure to moisturize often.

8. Stealing from your wife (or girlfriend) is wrong. Many guys use their wife/girlfriendís products because they are readily available, when products designed specifically for men are often less greasy and donít contain fragrance. Dove Men+Care offers a technologically superior product line to provide solutions to menís specific skincare needs. The personal wash is for men who prefer a mild, unscented body and face wash, and the deodorant/antiperspirants fight irritation and provide protection and underarm care specific to menís needs.

9. Locker room care. After sweating and getting tossed around on the field, sports equipment like football helmets will get dirty, which can lead to folliculitis or staph infections. To avoid infection, equipment should be cleaned with rubbing alcohol, a locker staple. And to minimize the items in your gym bag, itís helpful to use products that serve multiple purposes, like Dove Men+Care Body and Face Wash, the #1 dermatologist recommended brand.

10. The absolute essentials. Most men donít want to spend significant time perfecting their grooming routine; these are the essential products for every guy, in order of importance Ė antiperspirant/deodorant, shampoo, body wash. You need a moisturizer in the winter, and a sunscreen in the summer. (And all can be found at the local drug store.)
