Product picks from David E. Bank, MD, dermatologist and founding physician of the Center for Dermatology, Cosmetic & Laser Surgery, Mount Kisco, N.Y.:

Anthony Continuous Moisture Eye Cream ($33) "Men often show the first signs of aging around the eyes. A good moisturizing eye cream like this can help plump up the skin, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and decrease puffiness. Apply a dot around each eye in the morning and before bed."

Anger Control for Men

Life provides men with an endless supply of things to get angry about. There’s the sullen waitress who refuses to look in your direction while you wave desperately for the check. There’s the oaf who drifts across the road without ever using his blinker. There’s the dropped call, the tepid shower, the gum on the bottom of the shoe. While it’s perfectly natural to get angry about any of these things, anger comes to some men more naturally than others. For the hot-tempered, the pettiest annoyance results...

CeraVe AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion ($14) "Using an SPF lotion, wearing UV-blocking sunglasses, and wearing a hat are all ways to protect against the sun. Research shows that an SPF like this not only protects from the sun but also helps reduce wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and the risk of skin cancer."

Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream ($14) "Men -- who tend to have extremely dry skin -- should look for body lotions like this one. Glycerin and hyaluronic acid attract the water and moisture under the surface of your skin, helping hydrate the top layer. Dimethicone helps trap water in the skin."

SkinMedica Retinol Complex .25 ($60) "A good retinoid applied at night before bed can slow aging by increasing skin cell turnover, thickening the skin over time and giving skin a more even tone. I like this one because, while it has one of the highest concentrations of retinoids available without a prescription, it's still very gentle."

Product picks from Michelle Henry, MD, dermatologist at Sadick Dermatology, New York City:

Tend Skin ($20) "Starting 1 day after shaving, use a soft-bristle brush, washcloth, or Buf-Puf to exfoliate the skin and to help keep curly hairs from growing back into the skin. Alternatively, use a daily moisturizing product like this that contains salicylic acid to gently exfoliate the skin and encourage hairs to grow in the right direction."

Gillette Fusion Razor ($13) "If you have sensitive skin, using a razor with three or more blades is important to decrease the amount of pressure necessary to cut your facial hair. Shaving should be done in a downward motion on the cheeks and in an upward motion on the neck, in the direction of the hair growth."
