Itís a fact. Menís skin is more delicate than womenís.
Yep, you heard right! The daily shaving ritual aggravates skin, destroying hydrolytic film on skinís surface, thereby increasing dryness and reducing skinís natural protection. Whatís more, men Ė especially outdoor men Ė tend to expose their skin to a torturous array of damaging conditions including sun, wind, water, salt, building products, chemicals, cuts, scratches, and grazes.
Itís no wonder, then, that man of today is more concerned about his skin than ever before. Like his level of fitness and health, his apparel, and his grooming, a manís skin says a lot about him. Unfortunately, this new-found awareness is leading some men to conclusion that they should be using their wivesí skincare products. This is a mistake! A manís skin is different to a womanís, so it needs to be treated differently.
Why is menís skin different to womenís? Before we can talk about how natural menís skincare caters to menís unique needs, we need to understand what those needs are. Why is menís skin different to womenís skin? There are four main differences between menís skin and womenís skin:
ē Men have thicker skin (although many women would beg to differ) ē Men have oilier skin ē Men have more delicate skin ē Menís skin has smaller sebaceous glands
Why natural menís skincare? Thereís little point using a skincare product which is made for a womanís skin. Quality-made natural menís skincare addresses differences between menís skin and womenís skin (without turning skincare into a tedious, never-ending chore).
A quality menís facial scrub is formulated to combat drying effect of shaving while at same time exfoliating and replenishing skinís natural defenses. A menís soap contains specially selected oils and organic ingredients which not only cleanse but which also accelerate healing. Menís shaving supplements leave face feeling fresh and moist, not dry and aggravated. And of course, menís all-in-one face and eye moisturizers provide convenient yet dynamic skin rejuvenation while simultaneously minimizing damaging effects of excess sunlight.
