Anyone know of a good anti acne face moisturizer for men with sensitive skin? One that can be used daily. Also, any recommendations for anti acne aftershave would be great too. Thanks!

If you need more clearing power try adding witch hazel to a cotton pad and swiping your face before you hydrate with the aloe.

Disinfect your razors before use.

Thanks for this. I think that is what I'll pick up. I never knew that aloe was so useful; thought it just helped sunburns.

Actually the oppposite is true. Washing your face more than once a day irritates your skin and causes more breakouts

OP moisturize twice a day but apply a very thin coat otherwise you are clogging your pores. Use products without fragances and dyes like Cethaphyl.

If the person's skin is oily they don't need to add extra moisture. Cetaphil is nice and I absolutely agree on avoiding fragrances and dyes but because it has oil and dimethicone in it, it may not be the best for an acne prone face. Just watch for clogging pores with this lotion. Sometimes it can be fine but just be aware of the possibility of making it worse. Its a good lotion to have around the house for sensitive skin though regardless so a trial won't be a waste. You can always use it on your body or hands.

I agree on the over drying part too.
