Why Men Need a Different Skincare Routine Than Women


In the past, the world of cosmetics had targeted mostly women, and men who needed a skincare solution ‘borrowed’ products from elsewhere. The results, of course, were less than satisfying. You might wonder ‘why’? After all, we all have pretty much the same dermis and epidermis.

So, yes, while both men and women have the largest bodily organ – skin – there are some substantial hormonal differences in the structure of the skin. A lot of these are also related to men’s and women’s particular lifestyles and habits. So, without having the precise, high-quality skincare products, your skin might be going through all the wrong things. But before we offer you the perfect solution, it’s best that you know what makes men’s skin so distinctively different from women’s.

The Fundamental Differences

Have you happened to hear of the preconception that women tend to get colder faster than men? Well, one of the reasons for this is that men’s epidermis skin layer (the outermost skin layer) is 20% thicker than women’s. It’s also one of the main reasons that you wrinkle slower – thicker skin, means less crinkles and tiny skin creases.

Another major difference is that women don’t shave! As a result, their facial skin is less prone to bruises, nicks, cuts and scarring. But that just means that you need to take extra care of your facial skin, before, while and after shaving. It also means that your skin is more likely to suffer from inflammations, rashes and increased levels of oiliness – all because your grooming habits are different.
