Using the same body wash for men you ‘ve been using since high school is not going to cut it. It’s time for an upgrade, boys. Although you may be more of a bar soap guy, you may need to try one of these body washes. 

The best men’s washes don’t just smell incredible, though that obviously has a lot to do with it. If you have a sharp, squeaky-clean feeling after your showers, your body wash may be too harsh. That thin layer of oils is necessary to retain moisture inside your skin and the external pollutants out of it. While scrubbing away smut and grime, harsh chemicals in regular soap bars can harm your skin barrier and, in the process, leave you with dry skin.

To resolve this, shop for gentle foams that clean your skin, and also moisturize it to keep that dry feeling away. If this is your first time switching to body wash for men, start with this list.
