    Choose the right products

    Select products from a sensitive skin range, so that you know they’re made with gentle ingredients. Dove Men+Care Sensitive+ Face Wash thoroughly cleanses without stripping your skin of the oils it needs to protect itself

    Keeping skin properly moisturised is even more important if it’s sensitive – dried-out skin forms cracks, which let irritants in and moisture out. Use a mild body wash to help keep skin replenished and more hydrated as you shower. Try Dove Men+Care Hydration Balance Body Wash

    Shave smart

    Looking for shaving tips for men with sensitive skin? Firstly, go gently with your razor. You don’t need pressure to get a close shave. Use a light touch and you’ll find your skin feels much more comfortable. Don’t forget to shave with the grain, not against, to avoid provoking any rashes

    Test drive products

    Test a small area of skin with any new products. This checks for possible irritation before you use it all over

    Turn down the heat

    Piping hot showers may need to become a thing of the past. Hot water can be rough on sensitive skin, leaving it feeling tight

    Don’t feel the burn

    After-shave balm is one of the best shaving products for men with sensitive skin. For relieving irritation, Dove Men+Care Sensitive+ Post-Shave Balm will reduce your chances of shaving rash
