The fundamentals of skincare is not a woman’s prerogative anymore. The millennial man is equally conscious, concerned and considers skincare to be an essential part of their lifestyle. However, when it comes to taking care of the most important and largest organ of the body, you cannot afford any trial and error. Before you kick-off your daily skincare regimen, you as a conscious man, need to understand
your skin type and what can work for you.
Your skin and you
Men’s skin is largely different from women, in terms of thickness, density and collagen content, texture and pH balance. Men also tend to have a rougher skin texture and a higher amount of sebum secretion as compared to women. By virtue of the genetic make-up, men tend to sweat a lot and have a considerable amount of lactic acid in their sweat. Skin types can also vary with age, lifestyle changed or external
conditions like temperature and humidity in the air. The modern man has started realizing the harsh effects of prolonged exposure to the elements on his skin and wants to leave no stone unturned to protect it. So, before you stock your skincare supplies, allured by exotic names and smart marketing campaigns, enlighten yourself with some basic knowledge on skin types and where do you stand.
