BODY SKIN CARE FOR MEN
By Cynthia Bailey MD. This page was updated on Sun, Sep 15, 2019
Have smooth body skin that has the sheen of youthful vitality with my body care products.
Make major headway by using my dermatologist-developed skin care kits. I give you routines made from products that have additive benefits so that you see more results. And, they happen faster than if you used just a single product to fix a skin problem!
Whether you have acne, keratosis pilaris (raspy-rough skin on your arms and thighs), crusty age spots (called seborrheic keratosis), or you just want your skin to look and feel like it did when you were younger, I’ve created men’s skin care kits proven to work.
Over the past 30+ years, I have practiced dermatology and helped many men overcome skin problems. Men’s skin is different than that of a woman or a child. Also, a man’s skin care practices, wants and desires are often different, too. My male patients have taught me what products work, what they like and what they don’t like when it comes to skin care. The kits on this page reflect what my male patients have taught me over the years.
The four most common problems I see on the body skin of my male patients are:
- Back and chest acne
- Dry skin on the arms and legs
- Age barnacles (seborrheic keratosis)
- Keratosis pilaris ("chicken skin" on the backs of the arms, buttocks and thighs)
The most popular products my male patients trust for these common body skin problems will multitask and work fast.
Back acne is common, especially when a man is an athlete or sweats a lot at work. That's because the cause of a common form of back acne is the pityrosporum skin yeast and it grows more when a man is sweaty, such as during exercise. My Back Acne Kit uses the two most effective ingredients to treat and prevent this form of back acne.
Dry skin on the arms and legs is relieved with a simple, fragrance-free moisturizer such as my All Natural Body and Face Lotion. This is applied within the first few minutes after toweling dry following your shower. Focus on the arms and legs first because those areas become dry easily.
Dry skin, age barnacles and keratosis pilaris are all treated by my AHA Body Skin Care Kit. In this kit, powerful glycolic acid and exfoliation will soften and moisturize skin. Have smooth and younger looking skin with this skin care routine.
The most popular sunscreens for men's skin care are my Sheer Strength Pure Physical Spray Sunscreen and Solbar Zinc.
