What are the differences between men and women's skin?

Men's skin is different from that of women due to its thickness, firmness, and oily secretion apart from the stress we put onto our skin with our daily shaving.

That's why it's important to use specific skincare products for men. Otherwise, if the products are not formulated for men's skin, several problems can occur such as excess oil secretion, but also flaky or unbalanced skin.


Men's skin tends to be thicker and more lipidic (i.e., oilier) than that of women's. The vast majority of moisturizers that we find on the market are formulated for the skin of women, who usually have thinner skin.

Even the" so-called unisex creams " are indeed designed for women's skin.

Some of you tell us that before trying our skincare products, you could not use regular facial creams because your skin would become too oily and sweaty.

You can prevent that by using our specific skincare products for men. A facial antiaging solution for men can also be in form of a GEL, and not necessarily a thick cream. 


Differences between men's skin and women's skin


If you have combination skin, and if you are using a so-called "unisex cream" for combination skin, the chances are that you will still find your skin becoming too oily. And that's due to the fact that the so-called "unisex cream" has been basically formulated for the skin of women. 

It should be taken into consideration that women's combination skin is not equivalent to men's combination skin. This means that men's skin will always be somewhat oilier than women's.

This can also be applied to oily skin, normal skin, and dry skin. It's not the same a man's dry skin, than a women's dry skin. 

For a man that has combination skin, or even for a man with normal skin, who lives in warm and humid weather (for example South California, Florida, the Mediterranean, or South East Asia), we recommend a moisturizing texture in GEL instead of a CREAM, such as our Anti-Stress Gel, shine-free formula.

And for a man that has normal or dry skin, it is recommended the usage of a specific facial cream for men, such as our Anti-Stress Cream, since a cream for normal/combination skin of women would still be too oily if applied on a man's skin.
