Skin cleansers

Proper cleansing – preferably morning and evening - is perhaps the most basic tenet of good skin as it removes excess sebum and impurities while allowing all those fancy unguents (see elsewhere on The Groomsman) to absorb into your dermis properly. Cleanse with caution, though: anything too harsh will work like paint stripper on your skin and anything too mild won’t sort out that shiny forehead. Wipe the slate clean with these breakthrough face washes.

Dry Skin

DermatoCLEAN Refreshing Cleansing Gel by EUCERIN £8.25 for 200ml; eucerin.co.uk

Made with foaming Glucoside surfactants (cleansing agents), this complex formula removes everything from your skin that wasn’t there to begin with. Most importantly, it leaves moisture levels in tact so your face doesn’t feel tighter than a drum afterwards. Perfect for parched and dry skin that doesn’t respond well to run-of-the-mill face washes.

Sensitive Skin

Hypoallergenic Gentle Cleanser £34 for 240ml FOR by NV PERRICONE from perriconemd.co.uk

A non-detergent cleanser for guys with highly sensitive skin that flares up at the mere whiff of a spicy curry. Fragrance-free, paraben-free and sulphate-free, there’s absolutely nothing in this hypo-allergenic formula that’s likely to cause you to break out. It does give you a thorough clean, though.

Oily Skin

Blemish + Age Cleansing Gel by SKINCEUTICALS £29 for 250ml from skinceuticals.co.uk

Acne isn’t just for teens - a mature man’s skin can be just as prone to an oily, pimple-ridden T-Zone at the best of times. This one-of-a-kind formula decongests pores while a potent trio of acids, (including an effective concentration of Salicylic Acid) gently exfoliates away the signs of photoaging. Ideal for older chaps with uneven skin and inflammatory blemishes.
