We all know man and woman differ in many aspects not just physically or mentally but there is also a structural difference between a man’s skin and a woman’s.  A man skin is 25% tougher than that of a woman because androgen (testosterone) stimulation causes an increase in skin thickness.  In addition to being thicker, a man’s skin texture is tougher.

In simplest terms, sebum is oil secreted by your skin’s sebaceous glands.  After puberty, sebum production is greater in males than in females, which is attributed to androgen secretions and accounts for why men have longer lasting acne.  Regardless of age, in comparison to women, men have higher collagen density.  Because collagen content is directly related to the signs of skin aging, it has been said a woman’s skin is about 15 years older than a man’s skin of the same age.  Also, UVA and UVB rays damage from the sun adds years and negates the benefit of slowed intrinsic aging to man’s skin.  Now you all know why women spend so much on beautifying themselves and for all the men out there, just think before using women’s product for your skin.
