Dry Skin Care For Men

Dry Skin Care For Men

It’s not always easy for men to maintain a good balance of moisture and oil. Some men naturally have dry, flaky skin due to low oil production, while others experience dry skin due to overwashing or seasonal weather changes. Regardless of the reasons, dry skin can be an unsightly and uncomfortable issue. Fortunately, with the right skincare routine, you can manage dryness and enjoy brighter, healthier, and more hydrated skin in no time.

But what causes dry skin in men? Are some men destined to deal with dry skin for life? What are the best ways to fix dry skin? What is a good body wash for men with dry skin? Finally, where can you find the best dry skin care products and moisturizers for men at affordable prices?

In today’s guide, we will answer all of these questions and more, so let’s get started!

What Causes Dry Skin In Men?

For some men, dry skin is a seasonal issue. It’s very common to experience dry skin when the temperature drops outside. There tends to be less humidity, while the cold air makes it harder for skin to hold onto moisture. As a result, millions of men across the country experience dry hands, dry skin on the face, and even dry skin all over the body in the fall and winter.

However, many men deal with dry skin on a daily basis, regardless of the weather. So, what really causes dry skin? Like most skin-related issues, the underlying causes can vary; here are some of the most common reasons men experience dry, flaky, cracked skin:

  • Climate - As previously mentioned, the weather outside is the first thing to consider when looking for the cause of dry skin. If the temperature is cold and the air is dry (low humidity), men are far more likely to experience dry skin.
  • Genetic Factors - Some men have dry skin due to genetic predispositions. This can arise from a variety of genetic causes, so you’ll need to speak with a dermatologist to find out if you experience chronic dry skin because of family genetics.
  • Washing With Hot Water - Taking hot showers or frequently washing hands with very hot water increases the chances of dry skin in men. This is because hot water is more capable of stripping skin of its natural oils than cold or even lukewarm water.
  • Harsh Soaps - Many men don’t realize that the products they use to wash themselves could be one of the main culprits. Soap, body wash, shampoo, and even cleansing wipes that contain harsh chemicals could be stripping even more oils from the skin, leaving it dry and cracked.
  • Overwashing - While you should always stay clean, you should be careful not to overwash, particularly when it comes to your hands and face. Overwashing dries skin out, and each time you wash again, you make it harder for oils to naturally rehydrate the skin. You can partially reduce the effects of overwashing by using mild, soothing soaps and cleansing wipes, but you’ll still want to consider how often and how hard you’re washing.
  • Medical Conditions - Certain medical conditions like eczema or psoriasis can cause dry skin. Once again, you’ll need to speak with your doctor or a dermatologist to figure out if a disease or medical condition is the underlying cause.
  • Eating & Drinking Habits - Drinking alcohol and smoking are both common causes of dry skin in men, partly because both can cause or exacerbate dehydration. Not drinking enough water and eating a poor diet are also contributing factors.
  • Lack of Proper Moisturization - Finally, many American men do not moisturize as much as they should. While it would be great if your body could properly hydrate your skin at all times without any help, this isn’t the case for 99% of men. So, adding a quality moisturizer to your daily routine is the best way to fight dry skin.

Now that you know a bit about what causes dry skin in men, let’s look at some of the best moisturizers and skincare products to help hydrate dry skin:

Facial Moisturizer For Men’s Dry Skin

As a man, you want your face to look good at all times. This is why dry, cracked, flaky skin can be an annoying issue to deal with. While you should always investigate potential causes, speak to a dermatologist, and potentially make lifestyle changes to hydrate the skin of your face, you should also implement a quality skincare routine that includes a men’s face moisturizer for dry skin. At Anthony, we offer a variety of face creams, lotions, masks and lip balms for dry skin. Here are some of our top picks:

Men’s Lotion For Dry Skin

It’s easy to focus on your face and not give the rest of your skin enough care and attention. The hands and arms are common problem areas for men, but depending on your skin type, you may need to apply body lotions to other areas as well. In any case, we recommend Anthony’s proprietary Hand Cream to deal with dry skin on your hands and elbows. This cream is great to apply after getting out of the shower, after washing your hands, or just whenever your hands are feeling a little too dry.

Men’s Body Wash For Dry Skin

When you think of resolving dry skin, your mind probably goes straight to creams and lotions. However, if you’re using harsh soaps and cleansers on your skin, traditional moisturizers can only do so much. For this reason, it’s extremely important to reevaluate your washing routines and ensure that your products are actually treating your skin well and not worsening dry skin in the process. Here are some of our personal favorite body and beard wash products (as well as scrubs) for men with dry skin:

  • Invigorating Rush Hair + Body Wash - A 2-in-1 hair and body wash that will clean your hair and skin without stripping away oils and moisture.
  • Blue Sea Kelp Body Scrub - An effective body exfoliator that can remove dead skin cells and even out rough, dry patches on virtually any part of the body.
  • Conditioning Beard Wash - A conditioning beard wash that removes dry flakes and hydrates the hair follicles and skin underneath the beard at the same time.

As you can see, Anthony has products and solutions to help you deal with dry skin on your face or body. With our quality ingredients and dermatologist-tested formulas, you can rest easy knowing that you’re using the absolute best men’s skincare products for dry skin.
