Female and male skin is not the same

Although female and male skin do not seem very different at first glance, there are significant differences between the two.

Men's skin is different from that of woman because :

  • It is oily (contains more sebaceous glands)
  • It is denser (thicker and therefore more resistant)
  • It is more porous
  • It is warmer (due to increased blood flow)
  • It loses collagen and elastin more slowly (therefore, it shows signs of aging much later than female skin)
  • It has a lower pH on the surface
  • It is dominated by male sex hormones (these affect the formation of wrinkles, follicles under the eyes, sagging of facial features, pore enlargement and pigmentation)

When do wrinkles occur in men and women?

Feminine skin is much drier than that of men, and so it ages earlier. Therefore, there is a huge amount of cosmetics for women on the market divided not only by skin type, but mainly by age of women. You can't find that within male products.

Testosterone in male skin causes more subcutaneous sebum production and therefore men age slowlier than women. However, as wrinkles begin to appear on men's faces, aging is relatively rapid and changes are more visible. Men are also more at risk of losing muscle and skin sagging, so they look more tired than women of certain age.

Male skin is also more stressed than female skin. This is due to regular shaving, which deprives the skin of the top layer of skin cells and reveals new, immature and sensitive skin.

i Up to 40% of men suffer from increased skin sensitivity and skin-related shaving problems.

All these factors should be taken into account when choosing the appropriate cream for men.

How To Care For Male Skin While Shaving

The average man can shave more than 16,000 times in his life. As a result of shaving, the skin becomes more sensitive and reacts quickly to any irritation. And so it needs to be given special care.

1. Use shaving products

Protect your skin while shaving and reduce skin irritation by appropriate shaving cosmetics. They help the shaving razor or razor blade slide easily and prevent cuts and abrasions.

2. Use products for sensitive skin

Aggressive cosmetics can make your skin loose natural skin lipids. After shaving, a rash, redness, pimples, etc. may appear on the face. Treat your skin with antibacterial creams for sensitive skin.

3. A clean and sharp razor is essential

Shaving with blunt shaving razor is the worst thing you can do for your skin. Always use sharp tools to avoid increased skin irritation and make the shaving as smooth as possible.

4. Shave your beard in the right direction

Always shave your beard in the direction of its growth. Shaving in the opposite direction will cause ingrown hair and pimples.
