Men are harder on their skin than women (we’ve all seen guys in the locker room who rub moisturizer on their face like they’re pulling taffy). Testosterone means that men generally have more oil in their skin. Even so, because of shaving and other factors, men tend to have more delicate facial skin-care needs than women. W3LL People’s Shirley Pinkson recommends the following products to keep your skin (or your boyfriend’s) feeling smooth, supple and nourished throughout the winter.
