How to Take Care of Men’s Skin

Just like women, men want flawless healthy skin full of vitality. But there are many differences between male skin and female skin. This is why men’s skin requires very specific care. Discover how men’s skin differs from that of women and all our tips for caring for it.

Man’s skin: its characteristics

As you may know, testosterone is the main hormone that determines the characteristics of a man’s skin.


Thicker skin

Men’s skin is on average 20% thicker than that of women. It is richer in collagen fibers which allows it to be more supple, firmer and more resilient than the skin of a woman.

Oily skin

Testosterone further stimulates the sebaceous glands, which produce twice as much sebum in men as in women. This is why men will have oily skin, larger pores and are more prone to symptoms of acne compared to women.
