Is men’s skin really different?
So what is the difference between men’s and women’s skin?
“Men’s skin is about 25% thicker than women’s and has a higher density of collagen in the skin,” he says. Alana Henrikson, Eminence Organics Product Support Representative. That said, nature has not been completely unfair to the “fair sex” – collagen levels decline for men as they age as well, but it does so steadily. By comparison, women’s collagen levels are stable and then suddenly plummet after menopause.
“These are some of the reasons that men tend to age more slowly or the changes may not be as noticeable,” says Alana. Men also sweat more than women, and their skin has more sebum due to testosterone. Excess sebum makes men more likely to have oily, shiny skin, large pores, and acne. Finally, shaving brings with it a number of problems that women do not have to face, such as irritation, inflammation and sometimes infection. Men are also more likely to develop rosacea, which makes blood vessels visible on the surface of the skin, causing redness.
