SHOW SOME SKIN

We all have our problems—an misbehaving dog, too many TiVo’d shows to watch—but skin problems can’t be ignored (unlike all those waiting episodes of The Office). You stare at skin trouble every time you look in the mirror. Some quick fixes:

Problem: Bumpy, Irritated Skin
Solution: Moisturizing isn’t just for women. It keeps your face healthy and gives your razor a smooth surface to glide over.
We like: ClarinsMen Moisture Balm, $30.

Problem: Greasy Skin that’s Prone to Breakouts
Solution: Stop making it worse with soap. Soap strips your skin of natural oils, and your glands respond by producing oil like a ninth-grader’s. Use an oil-free cleanser formulated for this problem with salicylic acid and beta hydroxy acids to keep your skin free and clear.
We like: Neutrogena Men Skin Clearing Face Wash, $6.
Problem: Sun-Blasted Skin
Solution: There’s a whole new group of products out that help make up for all that time you spent on the golf course without sunscreen. They’re called skin serums, and they’re packed with vitamins and antioxidants to repair sun-damaged skin. They’ll stimulate production of collagen and elastin to eliminate wrinkles. Don’t forget the front and back of your neck—the first place you’ll start wrinkling.
We like: Exhale Serum 3 Triple Action Skin Repair, $55.

Problem: Dry, Flaky Skin and Ingrown Hairs
Solution: Deflake with an exfoliating facial scrub. It will help you get a closer shave while reducing ingrown hairs. Then moisturize.
We like: The Art of Shaving Facial Scrub, $22.

Problem: Puffy Circles Under Your Eyes
Solution: An eye cream formulated to soothe the fragile skin under your eyes. Tap, don’t rub, the product in around the sides and bottom of your eyes with your ring finger (it’s weak) so you don’t rub the skin raw.
We like: Lab Series for Men Eye Rescue, $26.
