Often overlooked, under-appreciated, and probably in use of some TLC.
Pop quiz: What’s the largest organ in the human body? The large intestine? No. The stomach? No. It’s actually an organ you can touch and see right now. It’s your skin, which is often overlooked and unappreciated, especially when it comes to its maintenance and care.
I’ve often been one of those guys who’ll grab whatever body wash or facial cleanser my wife has left in the shower or beside the sink, ignoring the fact that these products are specifically designed for women. If you think it’s appropriate for men and women to use the same skin products, you’re mistaken. As Dr. Jeffrey Benabio pointed out in an interview with the GMP, there are distinct differences between men and women’s skin.
“We sweat more; when we’re younger, we’ve got more oily skin, and when we’re older, we’ve got drier skin. All of this is important to know when you’re picking your skincare products. Dove Men + Care offers a number of products, catered toward today’s man and whatever his unique skincare needs may be,” Benabio says.
Among the products is the Dove Men + Care Face and Body Wash. Its Micromoisture technology is clinically proven to fight skin dryness better than regular men’s body wash. The Micromoisture activates on skin when lathering up. Droplets are precisely sized to deliver optimum moisture without feeling heavy. And moisture, Dr. Benabio says, is the key to good skin.
“Skin that is moisturized is skin that’s healthy and skin’s that feels good.”
Other Dove Men + Care products include deodorants, a dual-sided shower tool, and body and face bars. My wife is welcome to look, but I ask that she not touch.
