For whatever reason, men seem to find skincare quite daunting. Whether that boils down to not knowing where to start or just an overarching apathy remains to be seen, but at its core, skin is our largest organ. Male or female, we need to ensure our skin is functioning at its healthiest.
Male and female skin isn’t all that different. The foundations that make up a healthy skincare routine rarely differ- we need to cleanse the skin, balance and regulate the way it produces oil and protect it from environmental damage and stressors.
Foundations aside, there are a few ways in which male skin differs from female skin. Traditionally, men have much thicker, rougher skin than females, so while it is able to withstand environmental damage it can benefit from thicker, more softening moisturisers than female skin.
