Q: Why do men need separate skincare?

A: Men need separate products specially formulated for them simply because their skin is different from a woman's. Male skin tends to be thicker and oilier, so they need products that take these issues into account.

Q: What are some basic skin care necessities for every guy?

A: Every guy should begin with a cleanser and moisturizer. If he doesn't want a separate day and night lotion, make sure his moisturizer contains SPF 15 or higher -- most guys rarely consider sun protection, even if they're outside for long periods of time. If he's interested in anti-aging products as well, can add eye cream and an anti-aging night treatment to his shopping list.
