Do men have different skincare needs?

Do men have different skincare needs?

Skincare for men is the same - but different.

Whilst the same key ingredients would be employed in both men’s and women’s products, their formulations are adjusted to cater for the skin differences as well as for men’s ‘tolerance’ for products on their face.

For moisturisers, this may mean lighter, less oily formulations for men, or bases that are more quickly absorbed (so that it leaves a lesser feel on skin).

Shaving products for men also need to protect against nicks and cuts and provide optimal razor gliding, especially to the sensitive face area.
