Can you please suggest me a good day cream for dry skins (men)? My skin gets itchy after shaving n i'v also some acne and dark circles. Thank you

Shaving breakouts: All the signs and symptoms you are describing, itching and acne bumps after shaving that are leaving dark marks on your face sound like a condition called psuedofolliculitis barbae. A moisturizer is not going to help much but try something gentle like cetaphil. This condition is stubborn and sometimes difficult to treat. I would recommend you consult a dermatologist to help control the problem. ...Read more
