Men and women are two very different
animals, especially when it comes to skincare needs.
||Men's sebum secretion is double that of women,
and their skin is more alkaline with ph value of
4.5-5.5 (women's is ph 7). So men's cleansing products
need to be more neutral or slightly acidic, for
effective oil control and removal of dead skin.
||Shaving hurts the skin and reduces it protective
ability; therefore, men's skincare products often
contain Vitamin E and glycerin, ingredients that
soothe and moisturize the skin, rather than alcohol.
||Not many men will follow a complicated skincare
regime, so men's products frequently serve multiple
functions, such as scrub, oil control and hydrating.
