Pick the right cleanser for your skin—whether it’s acne-prone or sensitive. By SAMANTHA FRANCIS.

In this time and age, beauty and skincare no longer belong exclusively to the realm of the ladies. Skincare regimens for men can run the gamut from complex anti-ageing routines to the bare minimum of cleansing and moisturising.

With skincare closely tied to the idea of self-care, it’s no wonder more are paying close attention to what they put on their skin. Forget about settling for body soap and water, these fuss-free facial washes will help you cleanse your skin, as well as prevent breakout and irritation. As skincare isn’t one-size-fits-all, it’s also important to note that what might work for one, might not be as suitable for another. When in doubt, consult a dermatologist.
