Gender and Skincare
Men and women have distinct physiological differences, including their skin. Hormonal variations such as testosterone in men and estrogen in women contribute to these differences. Additionally, their distinct lifestyles and care practices are reflected in their skin.
1. Thickness: Men’s skin is approx. 20% thicker than women. Hence, men’s skincare products need to be light enough to penetrate the skin quickly but strong enough to perform the functions as per need.
2. Steep Reduction in Collagen: For men collagen reduces gradually with age, leading to decreased skin health and elasticity in men. This, combined with outdoor activities, makes men appear older than women of the same age. Early skincare and the use of products with deep-penetrating ingredients are recommended for maintaining youthful skin.
3. Oily Skin: : Men's skin is oilier due to more sebaceous glands. Sweating makes one wipe their face and which causes abrasion and inflammation. Skincare products should balance pH, prevent acne, and absorb quickly without leaving an oily residue.
4. Facial Hair: Men's thick facial hair due to daily shaving makes their skin sensitive and prone to irritation.
Their skincare should include calming and inflammation-reducing ingredients. Women, with thin facial hair, don't require daily shaving
and have different skincare needs
5. Healing Rate: Men have slower healing rate than women, so any acne scars are more pronounced and take longer to heal. Hence, men need products with retinol and Hyaluronic acid which helps in cell turnover and maintenance in the long run. Women skin heals better and faster than men due to their hormones.
