How to Choose the Best Men’s Face Wash for Your Skin

man washing face

It goes without saying, that a face wash is the cornerstone of a good looking face. If you’re face isn’t clean, bright, and looking refreshed, it won’t matter what else you put on it to make it look good. Finding the best face wash for men is often the reason most guy’s faces don’t look better. The guide below will help you figure out how to find the best men’s face wash for your skin type. You do know your skin type, right?

The Best Face Wash for men with Sensitive/Dry Skin:

The best face wash for men with sensitive skin is one NOT filled with any chemicals. Stay away from drugstore brands, anything with salicylic acid, and any men’s face washes that aren’t natural. A top men’s face wash will use gentle coconut based cleaners, along with moisturizers such as aloe in order to keep the face from becoming dry and cracked. Chemical cleansing ingredients will irritate and dry out the face.  Try to wash your face no more than once a day, preferably at night to prevent over drying your skin.

The best face wash for men with sensitive skin will contain these ingredients:

  • Aloe: This natural ingredient will keep the face hydrated after cleansing it.
  • Charcoal: Activated Charcoal soaks up facial impurities without drying it out.
  • Olive Oil: This natural oil will soak up excess dirty oil (yes, you read that correctly) and replace it with nourishing, healthy oil.

Face Wash for men with Oily Skin:

The best face wash for men with oily skin is actually quite similar to one for a guy with sensitive skin. Using face washes filled with chemicals will only excessively dry out your face. While this sounds like a winner – it’s not. Drying out your face ironically causes excess oil production. Your skin has a certain set point of oil it requires to maintain its homeostasis state and pH balance. Some people’s levels are less oily than others. If your skin is oily, instead, don’t buy a harsh face wash loaded with chemicals, but a strong natural face wash and use it multiple times a day. Use the men’s face wash for oily skin in the morning, pack a travel size for mid day during work, and again use at night before bed. This will prevent oily build up from accumulating during the day, and also not excessively drying out the face, which will cause excess oil to be produced.

The best face wash for men with oily skin will contain these ingredients:

  • Coconut Based Cleansers: These natural cleansers will powerfully clean the face, without over drying it.
  • Geranium: This natural anti-septic soaks up deep down impurities in the pores.
  • Aloe: This natural moisturizer will keep the skin hydrated, preventing excess oil production.

The best face wash for men with combo skin:

It can be especially hard for guys with combo skin to find the best face wash for them. The issue is because you’ve got a sensitive part of your face (typically around the cheeks) and an oily zone around your nose and forehead. We recommend buying a face wash designed for men with sensitive skin and then making sure to wash your T zone (oily zone) one to two times extra throughout the day, as needed, to remove excess oil in that area.

The best face wash for men with combo skin will contain these ingredients:

  • Aloe: This natural ingredient will keep the face hydrated after cleansing it, without any oily look.
  • Charcoal: Activated Charcoal is powerful enough to soak up excess oil in your T zone, but gentle enough not to dry out your sensitive areas.
  • Olive Oil: This natural oil will soak up excess dirty oil (yes, you read that correctly) in your T zone and replace it with nourishing, healthy oil.

The best acne face wash for men:

Simply put, acne is caused when hair follicles become plugged with dead skin cells, bacteria, and oil. This can happen for a handful of reasons including:

  • Too much oil (sebum) is produced by the hair follicle. This is mostly genetic.
  • Not properly cleaning your skin after sweating vigorously or working a job that causes you to sweat heavily.

The solution is not a face wash that severely drys out your skin, but one that soaks up just enough oil to prevent your pores from becoming clogged. This holds true from guys in their teens up to guys with adult male acne.

We recommend guys with acne to use a face wash designed for men with oily skin – it will be powerful enough to clear the pores, but not as harsh as a chemical based acne face wash for men.

Use the men’s face wash for oily skin in the morning, pack a travel size for mid day during work, and again use at night before bed. This will prevent oily build up from accumulating during the day, and also not excessively drying out the face, which will cause excess oil to be produced.

The best acne face wash for men will contain these ingredients:

  • Coconut Based Cleansers: These natural cleansers will powerfully clean the face, without over drying it.
  • Geranium: This natural anti-septic soaks up deep down impurities preventing plugged pores.
  • Aloe: This natural moisturizer will keep the skin hydrated, preventing excess oil production.
  • Essential Oils: These natural oils soak up excess oil and bacteria, keep pores clear.
