Thickness of Skin
There’s a structural difference between the male and female skin. You may already have observed that men have thicker skin than women, do you wonder why? That’s because of the stimulation of androgen, a testosterone which leads to a thick skin in men. There are so many other factors which affect the thickness of our skin such as age & the environment. The texture of men’s skin is tougher than women’s skin but various researches show that with age men’s skin gets thinner as compared to women’s skin. It’s only after menopause that the women’s skin starts becoming thin.
Production of Sebum
Because of the hormonal differences, the amount of sebum production in men and women is different. Sebum, which is main cause for acne, is produced in large amounts in men. The androgen secretion during/after puberty is the reason why acne last longer in men.
Men’s skin texture become rough due to more hair. This also causes large pores; therefore,Dr. Nirupama Parwanda suggests men should use skin care products which can be instantly absorbed by the skin. As you know that men also have more oily skin than women, it is suggested to use skin care products which help in controlling the sebum production which can ultimately help you in reducing acne. I hope you now understand why you shouldn’t be using same skin care products as your spouse!
The high density of collagen in men irrespective of age is the reason why there are less signs of aging such as age spots and wrinkles in men as compared to that in women. As we age, the production of collagen reduces, which results in the signs of aging. So, it’s usually after the menopause that the process of aging becomes faster and that’s why at this stage, women should develop a healthy skin care regimen to lessen the effects of aging on their skin. But, men’s skin is easily damaged from Sun’s UV rays, so please do not think that it’s only women who need to apply sun block on regular basis.
As you have now understood the structural differences between a man’s and a woman’s skin, you must understand that due to these differences they need different skin care regimen. Men have to deal with excessive hair growth and oily skin after puberty therefore the need for a deep cleanser arises. But women’s skin needs more hydrating moisturizers than men because of the presence of lactic acid in men.
