Indicators: Large pores and a sheen that develops quickly after you’ve cleansed.
Your Best Bet: If you’ve got oily skin, reach for an oil-free moisturizer. Try Kiehl's Ultra Facial Oil-Free Lotion, a light formula that conditions skin while keeping both hydration and oil levels balanced.
Indicators: Your skin is often itchy, red, flaky, or generally tight.
Your Best Bet: After using a facial cleanser to shed dead skin cells, dry skin needs a moisturizer rich in essential oils to soothe and revive it. Shiseido Men Moisturizing Emulsion quickly penetrates skin to make up for lost moisture while thiotaurine work to prevent excess oil (since no one wants extra shine).
Indicators: An oily T-zone (that’s your forehead, nose, and chin) alongside drier skin on the cheeks.
Your Best Bet: Treating combination skin is tricky because different areas call for different moisturizers. It's not the simplest solution but your best bet is to try a heavier cream on cheeks and a lighter, oil-free formula on the T-zone.
Indicators: An even skin tone with no flaking or sheen.
Your Best Bet: A general moisturizer like NUXE MEN's Moisturizing Multi-Purpose Gel is suitable for normal skin, maintaining hydration but also giving it a boost of energy with araucaria tree extract.
Indicators: You’re often prone to acne or other skin irritations.
Your Best Bet: Sensitive skin calls for something gentle that’s oil-free, paraben-free, and hypoallergenic. A moisturizer like LAFACE Laboratories TRITON for MEN suits this type of skin with its weightless but highly effective formula.
