Skincare for men vs. skincare for women

Think for a minute here :- describe all of the differences between men and women that come to mind.

There could be quite a few different things not related to skincare that you can think of. Yet some of our biggest differences become apparent when we look at our skin layers. The skin is one of the main organs of the human body, and it is an understatement to suggest that the skin needs to be taken care of.

Although skincare for men (or the routine of men taking care of themselves, if you want to call it that instead) is enormously different from that of women.

In males, sebum or oil production in the skin is much more pronounced than in females. Since puberty, this is extremely true and partially explains why men suffer way more from acne and it takes longer for them to fade. It has something to do with good old testosterone, which in men is even more pronounced and contributes to the male skin being plagued by greasy secretions.

Although both men and women have body hair, it is normally thicker for men (which is why it is more visible away from shaving or waxing), and this is, of course, extremely true for the face. One of the parts of the skin that is the most exposed. This not only makes it more difficult for men to put on some sort of face cream, but also contributes to the second argument below, which is much more important.

Men have tougher skin right?  Thicker than an average woman by up to 25 percent. This has all sorts of effects on the absorption of therapies and products for skincare and even on skin exfoliation by using male peeling products (male face scrub) or other male skin care items.

In fact, although most men are a little proud to be called “thicker” (although we mean only in terms of skin), they may raise an eyebrow to the word “thicker.” A survey (maybe not completely reliable) by MENSA showed that its members are usually more hairy than average.

Next: density.

The amount of collagen in our body relates directly to the age of the skin. Men’s skin has a much higher natural elasticity as men have a denser collagen supply. However, since they appear to be less well taken care of.

Your skin is your body’s vital organ. It preserves the underlying tissues, blood vessels, and nerves. This helps keeps water out and stores humidity. The skin also defenses against bacteria.

So, it is highly important to maintain it in good shape. Women have known for years, and not just for aesthetic purposes, how important biological skin care is. Many men have just started to take serious care of this vital aspect of their bodies.

But as important as it is that both males and females care for their skin, you must know the skin structure is very different between men and women and therefore it is also important for men to take advantage of skincare products that have been specially formulated for them.
