As a guy, does it really make a difference what face wash you use? Have you ever just grabbed a bar of soap and used it on your face? After all, face washes are all the same right? Wrong. A man’s skin is naturally unique. It’s more coarse and thicker than a woman’s. To get the maximum care and benefit for your skin you’ll need to find the best face wash for men.

In order to find the best face wash for your skin, you must understand your skin type. There are five basic kinds of skin types and products differ for each one. This guide will recommend the best facial wash for your specific skin type.

Normal Skin

Characteristics: Normal skin is the ideal type to have. It requires the least amount of care and looks the best overall. Normal skin looks clean and smooth. It’s neither greasy nor dry, and has a great balance of moisture.

Ingredients: For normal skin, you’ll want to find facial washes that contain exfoliators to remove dead skin cells, antioxidants to fight signs of aging, and moisturizers to maximize the health of your skin.

Oily Skin

Characteristics: Oily skin is shiny, greasy and most probable to break out with acne. Oily skin has enlarged pores and is coarse. However, it’s not all bad, oily skin tends to age the best

Ingredients: For oily type skin you’ll want to get products that are oil free. Washes that include exfoliators are also good. Make sure your facial wash included benzoic peroxide and salicylic acid to fight acne.

Dry Skin

Characteristics: Dry skin is characterized by a lack of oil. Dry skin has fine pores, feels flaky, dry, and tight. Dry skin is prone to wrinkles, aging and irritation. However, this skin is the least likely to develop acne.

Ingredients: For dry skin avoid products with excess alcohol. Stay away from washes with fragrances and menthol. Focus on products with extra moisturizers and lotions.

Combination Skin

Characteristics: Combination skin has characteristics of both oily and dry skin. The face is broken down into dry and oily zones. Dry zones are around the eyes and cheeks. It’s oily in what is known as the “T-Zone,” the forehead, nose and chin. You’re likely to get acne on your forehead, nose, and chin

Ingredients: For combination skin find cleansers that contain chemicals suitable for both dry and oily skin. Your face wash should contain some type of exfoliating agent like microbeads, salicylic acid, and a small amount of alcohol (about 20%)

Sensitive Skin

Characteristics: Sensitive skin is typically dry, feels tight and becomes irritated easily. Sensitive skin develops redness, can be itchy and prone to breaking into spots. This is the most delicate skin type and requires special care.

Ingredients: Use face washes that are alcohol free and fragrance free. Alcohol tends to strop away all moisture making your skin even tighter and more irritated. Perfumes can cause allergic reactions and redness. Look for washes that have moisturizers in them like aloe.
