There's no "best": There's no "best" per se. We recommend that men, and everyone, wear sunscreen with at least spf 20, 3 times a day and incorporate a serum with vitamin c (l-ascorbic acid) between 10% and 20%. Vitamin c is a strong anti-oxidant that may help skin cells regenerate quicker. Our favorite is the obagi c- serum line.

Not one: The most important is skin health. No one cream provides that. Healthy skin requires a optimal barrier function and a stable dermis. Otc creams mainly just camoflauge or moisturize and do not provide healthy skin. Healthy skin is achieved by correct diagnosis and comprehensive treatment using medical grade topical products under the supervision of a experienced cosmetic physician.

Protection: Men often forget to use sunscreen protection. This is very important and sunscreen must be reapplied every 2 to 3 hours while exposed to uv rays. In addition, an active vitamin c antioxidant serum will help protect the skin from damaging levels of radicals. For men who can't schedule periodic peels there are home products containing glycolic acid to help improve dull skin.
