As an active, busy gent, you don’t need the embarrassment and discomfort of dry, flaky skin on your face.

At Vaseline, we’ve developed an exclusive range of exfoliating, moisturising and nourishing facial treatments for men, in face washes, lotions, and toners, to help control the onset of flaky skin and a dry face.

Dealing With Dry or Flaky Skin

Dry, flaky skin can be a real nuisance – often, to control it, you have to take particular care during the day, and use particular products often. It could often become a time-consuming and frustrating condition.

Vaseline, though, is here to help.

We’ve developed a range of skincare products just for men, and the issues of facial dryness they could experience.

But before we look at the range of proven products in our suite, let’s look at some of the causes:

What Causes Dry and Flaky Skin on the Face?

There are quite a few external influencers that do a lot to affect the moisture content of your skin, to effectively cause dryness, and so the flakiness and discomfort that’s associated.

This could range from underlying health conditions that manifest as eczema or psoriasis, reactions to certain products not suited to particular skin types, or congenital and genetic skin conditions.

There are a few life hacks you can use to improve the moisture retaining qualities of your facial skin, and so banish the onset of unsightly and uncomfortable dryness and flakiness.

Which Remedy Should I Use To Treat Dry Flaky Facial Skin?

Dry skin on the face can be improved with the following simple, home-style remedies:

Use sunscreen

The sun does a lot to dry out the skin. And remember, even when it’s overcast, gloomy, and cold, you can still get a sunburn, and that dries the skin significantly.

Choose a moisturiser with a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) built-in, or simply use a good sunscreen – adding this to your routine will make the world of difference.

Drink water

Drinking plenty of water in the day replenishes your skin’s moisture from within – it’s a highly effective manner of ensuring your skin stays looking healthy and supple, externally.


Dry air is a common stealer of skin moisture.

Setting up a simple humidifier in a room before bed or during the day, adds moisture to the air, so that your skin can exist in harmony with the atmosphere in which you exist.

For every other instance, use Vaseline.
