Guys are often envied for being low-maintenance when it comes to their daily routines. As far as science is concerned, a male’s skin condition is vastly different in structure from a female’s. Still, it’s advisable for everyone to treat their skin with utmost care. The beauty industry is filled with skincare and cosmetic items that separately cater to men and women, but truth is, there are a lot of products on the market that may be used by anyone, regardless of what the label says. Below, we rounded up beauty products even guys could use on a daily basis.
A gentle facial cleanser.
Commuting daily and being exposed to the metro’s pollution is unhealthy for the skin. Get rid of the gunk and prevent dirt buildup by using a simple and gentle facial wash. Studies show that guys produce more sebum than the ladies due to sex hormones, which means they also need to wash off excess sebum to prevent it from building up and clogging pores. Try a gentle cleanser that can wash away the oil without being too harsh on the skin.

Facial creams with SPF.
We’re all for the summer szn, but the UV rays that come with it aren’t exactly something we should open our arms for. SPF is for everyone, and you can take your daily dose of it through a trusty moisturizer or an actual sunscreen.
