The 11 best facial cleansers for men in 2021
Every good skincare regimen starts with a strong facial cleanser, which cleanses our skin and cleanses our pores so that our serums and moisturizers can do their job properly. This is especially important for men who lead an active lifestyle. While a cardio workout stimulates our skin’s blood circulation and can promote collagen production, all that sweating can make our cups prone to rashes and irritation.
“You should use a facial cleanser morning and night and at all times after a hard workout to prevent bacteria and sebum build-up,” says Dr. Anthony Rossi, dermatologist at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City. Men’s health.
And thanks to cutting-edge skincare brands, today’s facial cleansers do more than just cleanse – they can also hydrate, treat pimples, and remove excess oil. With so many great products, finding the right one can seem overwhelming. That’s why we spent the last year browsing through hundreds of soaps and scrubs to find the 11 best facial cleansers for virtually every skin type and price point.
