A man's skin is structurally different from a woman's. Testosterone thickens the male skin and makes it 25% thicker and tougher then women's. Also, men have a higher collagen density than women therefore men will not show premature aging as quickly.
However, one of the largest issues with the male skin is the presence of acne. Problem prone skin to acne, large pores, blackheads as well as seborrheic dermatitis lasting longer due to higher sebum levels. This sebum production remains the same for men throughout their lives and will not decrease with age.
Stressing the skin daily from daily grooming habits such as shaving and razor cuts can cause ongoing over reactions from the skin resulting in ingrown hairs(pseudofolliculitis barbae), irritation and redness. No fun!!!
Because of these differences and issues male skin presents the male skin needs special attention and skin care. Non- pore clogging cleansers and moisturizers are essential in creating the perfect skin care routine for men. The key to the success of this routine are anti-inflammatory serums that instantly reduce inflammation post epilation (hair removal i.e. shaving & waxing). Our Tahitian Blue Emu Serum does just that.
While abrasive daily grooming habits weaken the skins natural barrier. The Omega 3,6 and 9 fatty acids reduce inflammation while strengthening the skins cellular structure thus eliminating ingrown hairs.
