Women’s skin care products are a flourishing market and women use skin care products all the time to cleanse their skin, moisturize, and prevent wrinkles and fine lines among many other things.
But are women’s skin care products just for women alone? It may surprise you, but just because these products are marketed towards women doesn’t mean they only work for women.
The secret most men won’t tell you is they do buy and try out women’s skin care products just like they use women’s hair care products. While there are slight differences in men and women’s skin, this is mostly that men can shave and tend to have oilier skin than women.
That’s not a problem when it comes to using the opposite sex’s products. In fact, men can benefit just as much as women from their use. These products may be designed for women, but more and more men are trying out and purchasing these products because they work for guys too.
According to Visioelan, in 2012 study, researchers found that healthy skin is way more appealing to the ladies than looks. Men are also statistically less likely to monitor or care for their skin and are not only more at risk for melanoma (skin cancer), but also more likely to die from it. Fifty Percent (50%) of the annual deaths are white men over 50 in the United States.
It makes sense since men are outdoors and in the elements more than women, which means their skin is absorbing more UV rays, wind damage, and environmental pollution. This all combines to age the skin, creating wrinkles, fine lines, hyper-pigmentation, and ultimately less healthy-looking skin.
For all these reasons, men need to rethink how they approach skin care. Skin health does matter! By taking care of your skin, you can reverse the damage that was done, prevent major health risks, and appear more attractive to the opposite sex.
Sunscreen should be worked into your skin care routine in addition to a daily cleansing, moisturizing and more sophisticated products to help your skin and face look their best. Eating healthy and exercising will also help.
The important rule is, don’t be afraid to experiment. Men should try every products in market including the ones designed for women because who knows it too will suit your skin needs?
