Their grooming and skin care needs are also distinct. Women seek beautiful skin whereas men aspire for well-being and healthy skin.
– Most Women
Your face is a window to your general health. Just like you exercise regularly and have a proper diet for a healthy body, you need to have a grooming regimen for healthy and radiant skin.
Sweat, pollution, dirt and over exposure to sunlight are the main reasons why men have dull and aged looking skin. Also, men sweat much more than women, hence a grooming routine becomes even more important for men.
But, just another grooming routine won’t do. You need products that are designed specifically for the tough male skin.
Because, skin physiology shows difference between men and female skin. Experts have studied the influence of age and sex on skin thickness, collagen and density.
Male skin is approximately 25% thicker than that of women.
The differences in male and female skin become especially evident with the onset of puberty. Sebum production is significantly higher in men than in women throughout their life. Greater sebum production results in more severe and long-lasting acne in men.
The rate of sweating in men is more than double in that of women. And, since their body hair is dense, the sweat takes longer to dry, increasing their chances of bacterial infection.
Daily shaving has uncomfortable side effects on the skin. Constant abrasion of skin due to razor, alkaline shaving products and lack of regular moisturising takes away natural radiance of the skin.
Men’s skin tends to over-produce melanin, the naturally present skin pigment responsible for colour. This leads to hyper-pigmentation of skin and formation of dark patches.
