A reader of this blog had some valuable insight in relation to my last post on skin care.
It turns out that I was right. Men’s skin is superior to women’s skin!
Check it out:
A man’s skin is about 20% thicker than a woman’s and is usually firmer because it is richer in collagen and elastin levels. This is why many men tend to age without as many deep-set wrinkles and fine lines as women.
Unlike female skin, male skin also has larger pores, a richer blood supply, and more active sebaceous glands. This means male skin is more prone to sweating and tends to be on the oilier side. While oily skin types have been known to age better than most, men who shave daily deal with the challenge of dry and dehydrated skin.
