​Why Men’s Skin Care Is Different

Posted by Porcelana Staff on

Men and women have different skin care routines, and for good reason. A man’s skin differs from a woman’s in many ways, including skin thickness and texture, differences in oil production, and collagen density. So what does that mean for a man’s skin care regimen and prevention of skin issues?

Daily Skin Damage Culprits

Natural Oils – Men have different hormones that affect the natural oils produced by their skin. Specifically, testosterone affects a man’s skin thickness and the oil production that can cause acne and other skin blemishes. Oily skin in men is very common and it is important to adopt a skin care regimen both day and night that will clear up oily skin and help prevent acne breakouts.

Sun Damage – Studies show that men produce more collagen than women, causing their skin to appear to age 15 years less rapidly. Unfortunately, men are also less likely to adopt a sun prevention routine causing skin damage and making the aging process appear more quickly. Adding a daily SPF to his skin care routine will help keep a man's skin looking great and help prevent burning, skin spots, and acne occurring from long term sun exposure.

Daily Shaving – We’ve all seen those uncomfortable bumps on a man’s neck and jaw after his most recent shave. They can be very uncomfortable and painful if not treated. Luckily, a few small changes to a man’s daily facial care can help prevent these bumps, including using proper shaving techniques and tools to prevent ingrown hairs and dry skin.

Importance of Skin Care

It is important for both men and women to have a skin care routine that moisturizes and protects their face and skin from the elements and other harsh activities. Acne and skin blemishes aren’t comfortable for anyone, but taking proper care of your skin can really help you feel more confident and keep your skin looking great year round.
