Sometimes, men need a skin detox, which is why using exfoliating cleansers at least once a week is a must.

Men's Exfoliating Cleansers

Exfoliating cleansers are multitasking powerhouses that cleanse and exfoliate skin simultaneously. 

They come in two types: physical exfoliating cleansers, which use small particles to manually remove dead cells, and chemical exfoliating cleansers, which use exfoliating acids to dissolve the glue that holds skin cells together. Chemical exfoliating cleansers, like those containing glycolic or salicylic acid, are gentler, provide even exfoliation, and offer additional benefits like hydration and soothing properties. 

Using them in moderation, like you would the top product choices below, can give your skin a smoother feel and a brighter glow without irritation, making them suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin.

Ombré Men Exfoliating Gel Cleanser

Priced at $18, the Ombré Men Exfoliating Gel Cleanser goes beyond surface cleaning by deeply drawing out impurities and toxins from the skin.

It transforms into a rich foam, gently detoxing skin by removing dead skin cells and unclogging pores, leaving the skin smoother and more vibrant. The inclusion of activated charcoal and fine-ground coffee provides deep cleansing and exfoliation, making it suitable for daily use and essential for maintaining healthier skin.
