Men: The Delicate Gender (Their Skin, At Least)

By Chrissy Birdsall

It’s a fact. Men’s skin is more delicate than women’s.

Yep, you heard right! The daily shaving ritual aggravates the skin, destroying the hydrolytic film on the skin’s surface, thereby increasing dryness and reducing the skin’s natural protection. What’s more, men — especially outdoor men — tend to expose their skin to a torturous array of damaging conditions including sun, wind, water, salt, building products, chemicals, cuts, scratches and grazes.

It’s no wonder, then, that the 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 man’s skin says a lot about him. Unfortunately, this new-found awareness is leading some men to the conclusion that they should be using their wives’ skin care products. This is a mistake! A man’s skin is different than a woman’s, so it needs to be treated differently.

Why is men’s skin different?
Before we can talk about how natural men’s skincare caters to men’s unique needs, we need to understand what those needs are. Why is men’s skin different to women’s skin?

There are four main differences between men’s skin and women’s skin:

• Men have thicker skin (although many women would beg to differ)
• Men have oilier skin
• Men have more delicate skin
• Men’s skin has smaller sebaceous glands

So why go natural?
There’s little point using a skin care product which is made for a woman’s skin. Quality natural men’s skin care addresses the differences between men’s skin and women’s skin (without turning skin care into a tedious, never-ending chore).

A quality men’s facial scrub is formulated to combat the drying effect of shaving while at the same time exfoliating and replenishing the skin’s natural defenses. Men’s soap contains specially selected oils and organic ingredients that not only cleanse but that also accelerate healing. Men’s shaving supplements leave the face feeling fresh and moist, not dry and aggravated. And of course, men’s all-in-one face and eye moisturizers provide convenient yet dynamic skin rejuvenation while simultaneously minimizing the damaging effects of excess sunlight.

Quality natural men’s skin care doesn’t contain chemicals which strip out the skin’s natural moisture. It doesn’t contain petrochemicals, sulphates and chemical preservatives that can have an hormonal impact. It doesn’t contain artificial fragrances and parabens. In fact, quality natural men’s skin care contains only pure and organic ingredients. It consists of a blend of essential oils, vitamin extracts, spices, beeswax and pure oils which is tailored to the specific needs of a man’s skin, environment and lifestyle.

As a result, quality natural men’s skin care can make a man’s skin feel less irritated, dry and itchy. It can maximize the skin’s elasticity and enhance the complexion. Perhaps most importantly, it can make it far more pleasant to a woman’s touch.

Men need skin care, too!
As it turns out, men need skin care just as much as women — maybe even more. Their skin is more delicate and it is continually exposed to damaging conditions. But because a man’s skin is thicker and oilier and has smaller sebaceous glands, it needs a tailor-made skin care range. So when it comes to skin care, don’t settle for second best. A man’s skin needs a natural men’s skin care range – a range that reduces dryness and irritation, replenishes natural defenses, enhances skin rejuvenation and makes his skin all the more touchable.
