Collagen content and skin tone
First of all: what is collagen? Collagen is a structural protein that gives strength and elasticity to the skin. Women’s skin starts to lose collagen from the menopause years (around 2% every year). Men’s skin feels firmer even in older age because it is about 20% to 25% thicker than women’s skin. This is partially due to higher levels of collagen, which start to decrease at about 1% per year after 30 years of age.
What is truly important, whether you are a man or woman, is diet and lifestyle choices. Eating a balanced diet, sleep, exercise and a clean environment does make a difference in both physical health and skincare.
Skin Type and Sebum
Men are generally more prone to acne and their skin is usually more hydrated and less dry as opposed to women. These two characteristics are both partially due to higher production of sebum in men’s skin. In fact, men have larger sebum glands than women, whose skin usually becomes less oily after puberty.
Men’s skin is 25% thicker than women’s thanks to testosterone. It’s a curse because this means you need much more powerful men’s skin care and grooming products as women’s products are formulated for their delicate, thin skin.
Whilst excessive sebum can lead to acne and clogged pores, it also helps the skin stay hydrated. So men are far less prone to having dry skin than women. This really plays well for men as they are notoriously paying less attention to their skincare. On the other hand, Harvard Health Publishing states that men are less likely to use sunscreen as compared to women.
One thing dudes have gotten right is not washing their face every single morning. This is because washing too much can ruin your skin’s natural oils.
But this only works if you wash every night. We start each day with a clean slate, so why not let your skin end on a fresh note, too? Don’t let dirt and pollution soak into your pores overnight.
If you have sensitive skin we recommend Cleansing Cream Extra Mild: with its naturally soothing ingredient, it cleanses the skin without stripping it of natural moisture. If you have oily skin, opt for Pufac Cleansing Mousse, designed to remove excess sebum and help you maintain unclogged pores.
Our skin takes a beating over time, thanks to free radicals causing oxidative stress, like air pollution, cigarette smoke, industrial chemicals, UV rays and shaving. To help repair your skin from stress, you can use Special Vanishing Cream. This restoring face cream rebalances the skin pH level to prevent ageing and bacteria overgrow.
After a light layer of Special Vanishing Cream, fight environmental stressors with rejuvenating and anti-age Balancing Trielaston, which stimulates your skin to be more luminous and radiant.
Moisturize and protect
In the a.m., follow up your antioxidant serum with a moisturizer that can protect you from environmental stress, especially when you are out and about. Pure et Lisse Ultra Serum is perfect for this. Its formula is designed to prevent oxidation and keep your skin free of toxins.
When you protect your skin you have to take into consideration UV rays, which affect your cells' health and metabolism. Naturalia Sintesi has developed a whole new line of SPF that protect your skin from the danger of UV rays and sunburn. Start with Sun Experience SPF 30 for the first days of summer to build a gradual tan safely. You can use Sun Experience SPF 15 when your skin has already developed a nice golden tan and you want to maintain it.
With these few tips and tricks you should be able to build the perfect Men's Skincare routine.
