    Pick the right tool

    A lot of grooming products can dry out your skin, which then causes it to overproduce oil in anticipation of dehydration. That’s why it’s so important to pick a formula that’s moisturizing as well as cleansing, like our Dove Men+Care Advanced Care Acne Clear Face + Body Wash

    Made with 1% salicylic acid, it deeply cleanses your skin and penetrates pores to help reduce the number of acne blemishes and prevent new ones from appearing. It’s also formulated with Triple Action Moisturizer technology and helps hydrate, nourish and repair your skin’s barrier.

    Cleanse morning + night

    Men with oily skin have larger pores and more sebaceous glands which secrete sebum, the oily substance that defends your skin against the elements. This means it's more prone to acne and breakouts caused by bacteria and blocked pores. And when it comes to skin care for men with oily skin, it also means cleansing twice a day is the best approach – especially when exercise is part of your daily self-care routine.

    Exfoliation is a great addition to any skin care routine for oily-skinned men because it helps scrub away dead skin cells while clearing your pores and encouraging skin renewal. But like we’ve said above – it’s important to ensure you give your skin moisture and not dry it out in the process.

    We think our Dove Men+Care Plant Powered Skin Exfoliating Charcoal + Clove Oil Cleansing Bar is the perfect tool for the job. Made with natural essential oils and exfoliating grains, this bar gives your skin superior moisture and leaves your face and body feeling softer, smoother and protected against dryness. It also has a purifying charcoal and clove oil scent, so you feel refreshed after every shower.

    Hydrate inside + out

    Dehydration, inside and out, can exacerbate oily skin. Drinking plenty of water every day can help stop your sebaceous glands from going into overdrive. Hydrating with a non-greasy and fast-absorbing moisturizer, like our Dove Men+Care Refreshing Hand + Body Lotion, can also make a big difference. Formulated with glycerin and jojoba oil, this lotion leaves skin feeling nourished with 48-hour moisture.
