HOW MALE SKIN IS UNIQUE
The WILDSMITH SKIN range is suitable for all skin, but there are some important physiological differences between male and female skin to consider when choosing your regime. Men’s skin tends to be slightly thicker in texture, up to 20%, due to androgen (testosterone) stimulation, which makes it oilier with larger pores. Collagen density is also greater in men’s skin, meaning they typically don’t experience the visible signs of skin ageing as quickly as women. Plus, daily shaving affects the lipid layer of the skin, its natural barrier, which can make it more prone to irritation. Kim Cochrane, Head of Education
