We know that men and women have differing skincare needs. Male grooming products are one of the fastest and largest growing markets today. Men are starting to pay attention to and take better care of their skin and we couldn’t be happier.
Did you know that male skin is biologically different from female skin?
We’ve all heard that guys have thick skin. It’s true. According to a 2014 publication in the American Academy of Dermatology Association, men’s skin is up to 25% thicker than women’s skin. This can be attributed to denser collagen stores in comparison to the ladies. Unfortunately, after 50, these collagen stores begin to deplete and the signs of aging become apparent and quickly accelerate. Coarse hair, daily shaving and larger pores can also leave our guys more vulnerable to blackheads. Not only do they have thick skin, the fellas also have tougher and oilier skin. Generally, men produce more sebum than women leaving them with shinier looking skin and more prone to breakouts. What is sebum? Sebum is an oily, waxy secretion that is produced by the sebaceous glands. It is odourless, but when bacteria breaks it down, sebum can produce strong odours. Testosterone and estrogen have been shown to affect sebum production so ensuring your products do not affect or alter your hormones is critical to help keep acne in check.
