Understanding Male Skin & Skin Care with Esse&Co
Our skin is really important for the perception of health and beauty. Knowledge of our skin physiology differences between the skin of women and man helps us develop a proper approach to properly take care of our daily skincare routine.
Skin Experts agree that there are structural differences between men's skin and women's skin. Different hormones are responsible for changes in male and female skin structure. Androgen (testosterone)
Male skin sebum production
Sebum (oil) and its production also differ in both – man and women. . After puberty, sebum production is greater in males than females, which is attributed to androgen secretions. For most people, changes in hormone levels trigger acne. These hormones create oils (sebum production is double that of women) that can lead to clogged pores, make pH lover which sometimes let bacteria grow, impurities and acne. All of these problems cause breakouts.
Ageing Male skin
Regardless of age, men have a higher density of collagen than women. Lucky, right? Because collagen content is directly related to the signs of skin aging, it has been said a woman's skin is about 15 years older than a man's of the same age. The good news for women is that, once the signs of ageing appear later in male skin, but changes occur more quickly once they start. Men are most affected by sagging skin combined with puffy eyes and dark circles that make them look tired. Male skin gets wrinkles too, though they are often less of a concern than for women. Male wrinkles occur later than female wrinkles but, when they do appear, they are fully grooved.
This intense exfoliation of the outer skin layers through shaving can lead to a more youthful skin appearance. But it can also irritate skin and lead to more ingrown hairs or bumps if you're not careful. On average, men who shave subject their skin to 16,000 shaves in a lifetime. Daily shaving stresses the skin and can cause irritation. It removes the uppermost layer of skin cells, exposing immature skin that is particularly sensitive to external influences.
