It’s 1 p.m. You just finished your mid-day deuce, and you gaze into the mirror. Why is your face so damn shiny? It looks like you just smeared burger grease all over yourself.
Now what? You can dab your face with toilet paper like a psychopath or take a birdbath in the sink. But deep down, your instincts are telling you neither of these options are viable.
Your face is one of the filthiest parts of your body, right on par with your feet and gooch. Blame Mother Nature for that one. There are more oil glands on your face than anywhere else, and when that oil mingles with dirt, sweat, and bacteria, it’s the perfect storm for a grimy mug.
Most dermatologists recommend washing your face in the morning and before bed. But what’s a dude to do if he’s scheduled for a midday meeting or a lunch date and his face is glistening with grease?
Can’t You Just Scrub Your Face With Soap?
When you notice oil and grime building up, your first instinct will be to scrub your mug with hot soapy water. Not so fast, says Dr. Shari Lipner, a New York dermatologist.
Washing your face more than twice a day (especially with harsh soap) strips your skin of its natural oils, which causes even more oil to build up later on. Your body will do whatever it takes to keep a thin layer of oil on the skin, so trying to scrub it off an exercise in futility.
If you’re a dude with oily skin, you might think you’re exempt from using a moisturizer, but the opposite is true. “As long as you use a light moisturizer, it will hydrate and actually decrease oil production,” says Dr. Lipner.
But carrying a bottle of lotion into the office bathroom might imply you’re taking care of...something else. Don’t worry—there’s a better option.
Clean Up on the Go with a Wipe
Put down the soap and lotion because there’s a new kid on the block that’s giving guys worldwide a quick and effective way to maintain a fresh face all day: DUDE Face & Body Cleansing Wipes.
These unscented wipes are infused with natural ingredients like sea salt, aloe vera, and vitamin-E to clean, soothe, and moisturize any skin type in one wipe. We know the scourge of sensitive skin; that’s why we made these wipes hypoallergenic and alcohol-free with zero phthalates or parabens.
If you really want to kick your skincare game up a notch, we designed a super refreshing, Energizing face wipe formula. These bad boys are infused with pro-vitamin B-5 and citric acid to leave you with that spa fresh feeling any time of day.
DUDE Face and Body Wipes are designed to keep your face looking fresh and healthy, whether that’s post-shave, pre-date, or somewhere in between. You can even use them to stave off midday underarm stank if you don’t have deodorant handy.
You can keep them in your gym bag for a post-workout wipe, pack them for camping trips, and they’re even TSA approved so you can stay fresh 30,000 feet in the air.
DUDE Nation is all about keeping the planet as clean as your body, which is why our wipes are made with a 99% water and plant-based formula. These wipes are thicker than the original DUDE Wipes (the ones for your ass), so they’re not flushable, but the biodegradable materials make them perfectly fine to toss in the trash, unlike a lot of face wipes that contain harsh chemicals.
What If You Need to Wipe Down Your Whole Body?
Wiping snack crumb residue off your face is one thing, but what if your filth and body odor are no match for a towelette?
Unlike baby wipes or standard wet wipes, DUDE Shower wipes were engineered to be full-body cleansing wipes. They’re big enough to clean all your dude parts in a single-use, plus they’re as sturdy as a washcloth. The fragrance-free formula has aloe barbadensis extract and chamomile to keep you smelling fresh without jacking up your skincare routine.
DUDE Shower wipes are no-rinse and pre-moistened, so you don’t have to worry about splashing yourself with sink water or dabbing yourself off with toilet paper. But don’t take our word for it; take it from this random Amazon reviewer.
“I managed to get clean from head to toe without getting down to a bone dry wipe. At the same time, I didn't feel like I needed to towel off afterward. In that regard, the wipe was perfect.”
