To improve patient care and outcomes, leading dermatologists offered their recommendations on the top men’s cosmetics. Consideration must be given to:
Skin Is In
“Because men typically use whatever skin care products are lying around and tend not to think about their skin unless there is a problem, more damage occurs to their skin. Skin Is In’s FaceTime for Men kit is specifically formulated for men. The products are made in the United States from the highest-quality ingredients available on the market and are free of fragrances, dyes, parabens, petrochemicals, and comedogenic and allergy-causing irritants.”—Tina S. Alster, MD, Washington, DC
“A great daily moisturizer for men that has caffeine as an ingredient as well as a sunscreen.”—Anthony M. Rossi, MD, New York, NY
Procter & Gamble
“It gives a nice clean shave with minimal risk for nicks.”—Marian Northington, MD, Birmingham, AL
- Lumixyl Topical Brightening Creme
Envy Medical, Inc
“This product is used to treat epidermal hyperpigmentation by targeting tyrosinase, an enzyme that was found to inhibit 17-fold more potently than hydroquinone. Since the product does not contain hydroquinone, it is devoid of safety concerns.”—Basil M. Hantash, MD, PhD, Turlock, CA

- Ultimate Brushless Shave Cream—Blue Eagle
Recommended by Anthony M. Rossi, MD, New York, NY
- Vivité Exfoliating Facial Cleanser
“Men who combat oily complexions benefit from the exfoliation and oil reduction of this easy-to-use cleanser. And the gritty texture helps them feel confident that they are getting extra clean.”—Amy Derick, MD, Barrington, IL
