Skin Care for Men
More and more men are becoming aware of the benefits of taking
care of their skin. Some are even falling into the youth trap
as evidenced by the increasing number of men opting for plastic
surgery. Guys, take a step in the right direction and
Men Have More Delicate Skin Than Women!
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'
skincare products. This is a mistake! A man's skin is different
to a woman's, so it needs to be treated differently.
Why is men's skin different to women's? 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
Why natural men's skincare?
There's little point using a skincare product which is made
for a woman's skin. Quality-made natural men's skincare
addresses the differences between men's skin and women's skin
(without turning skincare into a tedious, never-ending
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. A men's soap contains
specially selected oils and organic ingredients which not only
cleanse but which 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
Quality natural men's skincare doesn't contain chemicals
which strip out the skin's natural moisture. It doesn't contain
petrochemicals, sulphates, and chemical preservatives which can
have an hormonal impact. It doesn't contain artificial
fragrances and parabens. In fact, quality natural men's
skincare 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 and a man's environment and
As a result, a quality natural men's skincare range 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
Conclusion As it turns out, men need skincare 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 skincare range. So when it comes
to skincare don't settle for second best. A man's skin needs a
natural men's skincare range - a range which reduces dryness
and irritation, replenishes natural defenses, enhances skin
rejuvenation, and makes his skin all the more touchable.
