You don’t want your skin to itch or look flaky, but you also don’t want to spend your hard-earned cash on moisturizers: We get it. According to recent research, men are spending 12 percent more on skin-care products this year than last.
Good news for you: The new crop of products that are raking in the dough do more than just moisturize—they multitask. SPF and cream, toners and conditioners, scrubs and—you get the point.
Here are a few worth the investment.
Kiehls Facial Fuel SPF 15
This product is a triple whammy: Protect against harmful UV Rays, say sayonara to dull skin, and look revitalized. It’s lightweight, not greasy, and packed with vitamins C and E which are important in repairing damaged skin giving you a fresh look. (www.Kiehls.com; $25.00)
Aveeno Ultra-Calming Daily Moisturizer SPF 15
Feverfew—a naturally calming herb—makes this moisturizer a top choice for sensitive skin. Get rid of redness, fight the sun’s harmful rays, and moisturize. It’s oil-free and hypoallergenic, too. The best part? It’s at all major drug stores. (www.Aveeno.com; $17.00)
Mënaji Deep Cleansing Masque
This facial scrub doesn’t just exfoliate (digging out dirt and getting rid of blackheads) it also acts as a spot treatment. Use it as a wash and rinse, or apply a small amount to a zit overnight. (www.Nordstrom.com; $26.00)
