It’s time we had the talk. No, we don’t need to discuss the birds and the bees. We all know men and women are different, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have a few things in common, one of those things being acne! Men and women, and teens and adults, all struggle with breakouts. While the majority of the skincare market caters towards women when it comes to packaging and branding, a skincare routine is something we should all have. It doesn’t matter who you are – breakouts happen. One thing we know for certain? One-size-fits-all skincare doesn’t, in fact, fit all. No matter your age, gender, or ethnicity, everyone should understand their skin type, skin needs, and have a routine on hand that truly works for them.
What Makes Men’s Skin Different?
While we all deal with similar struggles, it doesn’t mean our skin is all the same, and neither should the way we treat it. Skin is skin, but there are a few factors, both biological and external, that make men’s skin different from women’s. Men naturally produce more collagen than women. Collagen in the skin makes up the connective tissue that keeps your skin looking young. The more collagen, the fewer signs of aging. As we grow older, our natural collagen production begins to diminish, but men naturally carry more of this in their bodies. What counteracts a youthful look? The sun’s harmful rays. All men should make a daily sunscreen part of their routine to decrease the effects the sun’s rays have on their skin.
Men who shave have a leg up when it comes to exfoliation! My shaving regularly, men are physically exfoliating the dead skin cells that can lead to clogged pores and increased breakouts. On the other hand, too much exfoliation can lead to irritation or dry skin, disrupting the skin barrier and causing more issues including acne. To combat these issues, it is important that men have a hydrating moisturizer to end their routine and keep their skin happy.
