Men have more col­la­gen in their skin and pro­duce more se­bum, so they vis­i­bly age more slowly. Thus, the topic of “sen­si­tive skin as you get older” doesn’t im­pact them as much. How­ever, for some ma­ture men, “sen­si­tive skin re­lates to con­di­tions in­clud­ing rosacea, eczema, pso­ri­a­sis,” says Rivers. Gen­tle cleansers and un­fra­granced mois­tur­iz­ers (try Nivea Men’s Sen­si­tive Skin Mois­ture Cream, $9) can calm skin, but shav­ing may be a chal­lenge.

In­stead of that hol­low-han­dled dis­pos­able, try Gil­lette’s ProShield Chill ra­zor ($15) with fric­tion-eas­ing, lu­bri­cat­ing strips sur­round­ing the blades. To min­i­mize ir­ri­ta­tion, prep with beard oil be­fore ap­ply­ing shav­ing foam and use a gen­tle gly­colic acid scrub weekly to un­clog pores and pro­tect against in­grown hairs. TRY: Amer­i­can Crew Ul­tra Glid­ing Shave Oil, $15; Bio­therm Anti-Ir­ri­ta­tions and Anti-Red­ness Shav­ing Foam, $22; Nip+Fab Gly­colic Scrub Fix ex­fo­liant, $10.
