Skin care for men - Different from women

Huidverzorging voor mannen - Anders dan bij vrouwen

Skin care is no longer just a women's issue. More and more men are realizing the importance of a good skin care routine to maintain healthy and radiant skin.

  1. Skin structure: In general, men have thicker skin than women. Their skin contains more collagen and elastin, which can contribute to fewer visible signs of aging at a younger age. Women, on the other hand, often have thinner skin and can be more sensitive to sun damage.

  2. Sebum production: Men generally have higher sebum production than women. This can lead to oilier skin and a greater tendency to develop acne and clogged pores.

  3. Shaves: Many men shave regularly, which can lead to irritation, ingrown hairs and dryness. This requires special attention in their skin care routine.

What Men Need in their Skin Care:

  1. Cleaning: Men should cleanse their skin daily to remove dirt, excess sebum and dead skin cells. Use a mild cleanser that does not dry out the skin.

  2. Shave: A good shaving routine is crucial for men. Use a sharp razor, shaving cream or gel, and consider a soothing aftershave balm after shaving.

  3. Hydration: Moisturizing is important, even for men with oily skin. Choose a light, non-comedogenic moisturizer to keep skin hydrated without clogging pores.

  4. Sun protection: Men should not forget to protect their skin from the harmful effects of the sun. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30.
