The industry has us thinking that we shouldn't use the same products as our male counterparts, but is there really a difference between women's and men's skincare products?
Skincare should be all about meeting your ski's needs, so maybe we should startstart by asking one question, is there any difference between men's and woman's skin?
Do men have different skin?
The truth is that men's skin ages differently from women's skin. To begin with, men's skin is 25% thicker because they have higher collagen content. Second, the oil glands in men are more active, so they are usually less dry than women's. The aging process is more gradual from a young age in men, while women's skin maintains its structure more or less until menopause.
Then, is there really a difference between women's and men's skincare products?
well, women's products try to target the lack of oils, thus, they are thicker than men's skincare products. On the other hand, men's products do have more exfoliating compounds such as retinol to make their complexion more glowy and for its anti-aging effect.
The bottom line
You have to pay attention to the compounds in the product to address your specific skin needs, instead of using the gender with which it has been marketed.
