Most men donâ€™t talk about skin care or grooming products with their buddies the way that women do with theirs, but that doesnâ€™t mean men donâ€™t care â€“ they just may not know who to ask.
We asked Washington,DC-based dermatologist Terrence Keaney, M.D., to tell us what he keeps in his shower caddy and to share tips for men who may be grooming-challenged.

Despite the explosive growth in menâ€™s skincare brands, 75% of men over 18 are not using any facial skincare products.
