Summer Skincare Regime for Men

A basic skincare routine is required by all. Taking care of the skin is very compulsory as you might end up with a bad skin phase that will make you stay indoors and develop traits of being anti-social all the time. Several fashion bloggers and influencers have introduced many skincare regimes for both men and women to ensure proper skin health.

Men have a different type when talking about the skin. There's nothing to differ, the skin is skin, and it's the same organ. Differences observed are:

  • Men have thicker skin compared to women.
  • A hormone called testosterone, when stimulated, causes an increase in the skin's thickness that proves the fact that a man's skin is 25% thicker than a women's.
  • A male’s skin is better hydrated than a woman’s. Men happen to use nothing over their skin, but excessive sweating and lactic acid production lead to a higher hydration level.
  • Men can grow hair in places.
  • Men contain more oil in their faces. They have some sweat-producing glands under their skin that helps in managing their skin's water level.
