If you're looking for men's skin cleansing tips, check out this section on HowStuffWorks. It discusses everything from choosing men's skin cleansers, maintaining skin cleansing regimens and more!


We all want clean skin, but choosing a product that won't leave it dry and flaky is easier said than done. Get ready to change not only the products you use to cleanse yourself, but also your cleansing routine.

Men might not be as conscious of the need for moisturizing products as women, but they can certainly benefit from them. But do all moisturizing cleansers and products leave your face feeling greasy?

Unlike bar soap from days gone by, today's body cleansers promise to moisturize, deodorize and prevent skin problems. But do the ingredients of body cleansers made for men versus those made for women make a difference, or are these cleansers unisex?

Think the only difference between men's and women's facial cleansers is the packaging? Think again. Men have tougher, oilier skin and need a special formulation to help them take care of the body's largest organ. So just what makes one product different from the other?

Men are becoming more conscious about their skin. One method of making their skin look younger and fresh is exfoliation. But too much -- or too little -- of a good thing can backfire.

Skin care for men is all the rage lately. But you hardly know what exfoliation is -- and you certainly don't know when you should do it. Never fear. We'll guide you across the skin care landscape.

Sad, but true: Men don't take care of their faces as well as they should. They may wash too often, too little or at the wrong time. Luckily, we have some tips designed to help them out.

Men may have thicker skins than women, but their skins also suffer more damage. Is there a men's cleanser out there that can give men's skin the TLC it requires?

Shaving can be a hazardous activity if you don't do it right. Acne and assorted razor burns and bumps are among the unwanted results. Washing your face can have an influence -- but how?

The first step to a healthy complexion is proper cleansing. But that bar of soap on the sink may not be the best thing for a man wanting a healthy, handsome glow.

If you already have dry skin, the last thing you want to do is make it worse by using the wrong soap. And simply avoiding the shower stall isn't going to help either. So which products will keep you clean without making your skin drier?

There's a cleanser out there for every skin type, and despite what you may have experienced, cleansers for oily skin don't have to be overly drying to work well. You can have clean skin without side effects, but how do you find the right cleanser?

Even without a diagnosis from your doctor, you probably have a good idea if your skin is sensitive. You want to take care of your itchy, irritated or acne-prone skin, but products marketed for sensitive skin don't always work. So what should you use?

Want to go beyond regular soap but feel overwhelmed by the different products and steps in a skincare routine? Learn about men's all-in-one cleansers that make taking care of your skin a breeze.

Although a lot of effort goes into clearing up acne on your face, the back and chest are other areas that might need attention. What should men look for to treat body acne?

For men, looking for an acne cleanser can be difficult, especially since a lot of products are marketed toward women. But how can guys tell the difference between an effective acne remedy and mere overpriced soap that claims to improve complexion?

If you have dry skin, you know that it's itchy, red and possibly very painful. What you may not know, though, is that the cleanser you've been using is actually making your skin worse. What should you be on the lookout for?

Let's face it: Everyone, everywhere should be cleaning their face every day. But soaps can be too harsh on the skin, and cleansers may be getting off the dirt but doing damage elsewhere. So, how do you find the cleanser for you? We'll tell you.
