Leading dermatologists offered their recommendations on the top men’s products. See what they’re recommending to their patients and why.


To improve patient care and outcomes, leading dermatologists offered their recommendations on men’s products. Consideration must be given to:

  • bareMinerals SPF 30 Natural Sunscreen
    Bare Escentuals Beauty, Inc
    “I recommend this product to my male patients when they are not wearing a hat. It protects the scalp from UV damage without a heavy greasy finish.”—Shari Lipner, MD, PhD, New York, New York
  • Ducray Alopexy 5% For Men
    Pierre Fabre Laboratories
    “This dermatologist-dispensed product for men addresses chronic hair loss as well as thinning hair. It contains an optimal level of minoxidil 5% in an elegant unscented formulation and is designed to spray on smoothly and evenly.”—Jeannette Graf, MD, Great Neck, New York
  • Facial Fuel Energizing Scrub
    “This product is great for oily skin and enlarged pores. The particles in the product allow one to get a deep-clean feeling.”—Gary Goldenberg, MD, New York, New York
  • Physical Matte UV Defense SPF 50
    “For men I like to keep things simple. I recommend what I use with the single most important thing being daily sun protection. SkinCeuticals Physical Matte UV Defense SPF 50 is my favorite and I use it after I shave. It goes on smoothly and has a natural tint along with a high SPF.”—Jerome Potozkin, MD, Danville, California
  • Ultimate Brushless Shave Cream
    “I recommend this product for men with frequent irritation from shaving. This cream-based product helps to provide a close shave without as much irritation from other gel-based products. A small amount goes a long way!”—Anthony M. Rossi, MD, New York, New York
