Men’s skin

 

Men’s skin specificities

Skin is an organ under the influence of hormones.

Male hormones give men’s skin characteristics of their own :

  • Men’s skin is naturally richer in collagen, and the cornea layer is thicker. It ages later, but once this process has started, the skin marks in fits and starts with deeper wrinkles.

  • Men’s skin contains more sebum glands; it produces more sebum and is greasier.

  • Men’s skin contains more hair follicles, with beard covering 1/3 of the surface of the face on average. Shaving is an important daily aggression, it harms the upper layers of the epidermis, disrupts the resident flora, provoking sharp pains and leading to in-growing hairs.

Which care should be applied ?

Men’s skin ages relatively later, but this ageing is well marked. It is essential to protect the skin as precociously as possible, by applying adapted cares, which can delay ageing signs.

It is best to favour fluid moisturizing and matifying textures, to give the skin only what it needs, and improve its aspect.

Applying an alcohol-free after-shave balm, moisturizing, re-balancing, and repairing is indispensable to start the day with a lasting effect.

A major point : it is important to take care of the skin and to apply moisturizing and protective products even if we do not shave! Some smart after-shaves can be applied on the entire face, even on non-shaved zones, to moisturize them and protect them from external aggressions.

Which men are concerned by the use of cosmetic products ?

Outside activities during which skin is exposed to ultraviolet rays, pollution, as well as daily shaving, the use of non-adapted cleaning products and tobacco and alcohol consumption, are many harmful factors for the skin. Yet, they are part of our daily lives, and it is essential to protect the skin against these aggressions.

However, a large majority of men still consider these problems as accessory, and show no interest in cosmetics, unless of serious complications (acne, in-growing hairs…). Undoubtedly, men’s skin is better armed than women’s against external threats, but health isn’t a matter of gender, and it is important to take care of the skin on a daily basis.
