In straightforward terms (and therefore male terms), yes.
For those of you out there who want a more detailed description, I'll give it to you. There are many thoughts and conventions about how a man's epidermis differs from a woman's. Women and men will often find skin care products that are for him or her, but many will discount these more expensive products for a generic, unisex product (or if you are like me, you just don't care and don't use anything). There are some key reasons why using a unisex product may not be the best idea.
According to various sources, there are six major differences between man-skin and wo-man- skin. Here they are:
- Men's oil glands are smaller than women's. This is where the skin absorbs many of the products placed on it (and dirt for that matter).
- While women and men 50 and over have similar levels of oil in their skin, men actually tend to have more oily skin. This higher level is thanks to testosterone production.
- Women's skin is thinner, making to more susceptible to damage from UV rays and to signs of aging.
- Believe it or not, men's skin is more fragile than women's, and shaving doesn't help!
- Due to drops in estrogen after menopause and faster reductions in collagen, women's skin tends to age faster than men's.
- Women may have up to twice as many nerve fibers as men. So women are more sensitive on the inside and the outside!
