    Is men's skin different?

    YES! Men’s skin is often thicker, with more collagen and oil because higher androgen levels promote the secretion of sebum, an oily substance produced by the sebaceous glands. While wrinkles tend to develop in men at later ages than in women, they are often more pronounced.

    It’s important to emphasize that despite the differences in male skin, men may still encounter problems like acne, dryness, sensitivity, and age-related skin conditions. They should therefore use products designed for men which—taking these differences into consideration—address male needs and requirements. For example, moisturizing treatments for men with oily skin usually come in fluid form with a less rich texture, or in light lotion form with a matte finish. Daily shaving is very hard on the skin as it actually removes some of the skin’s hydrolipidic film (its natural protective barrier). A moisturizing after-shave treatment that contains a sunscreen, if needed, can help counter the effects of aging and soothe irritated skin.

    Men may also find that some of the specialized treatments described above can help firm, moisturize, oxygenate, and soothe their skin.
