Men’s vs. Women’s Skin and Skincare Routines

Most people, if not everyone, takes care of their skin in one way or another. From elaborate skincare routines to simple wash-and-rinses, there are many ways that your skin can be taken care of, especially between men and women. You should cater your skincare products and routine to the type of skin that you have.

While there are many differences in skin types, Premier Dermatology, a professional practice in Delaware, is here to help you figure out what type of treatment your skin needs and what can be left out of your routine. We even sell products geared towards men and women to help you get the skin of your dreams! Here are some helpful facts to help you learn more about your skin.

Men’s and Women’s Skin Types

Even though it might not seem like there’s a huge difference in the skin between men and women, there is. Men’s skin can handle a lot more than women’s. This is due to their higher levels of collagen, more and larger hair follicles, and more sebum production. However, more sebum production and bigger pores can result in more acne.

Women’s skin, on the other hand, is thinner. Their skin maintains its thickness, up until they hit menopause when decreasing hormone levels dramatically change their skin.

Skincare Products

Because men have a higher sebum production, they don’t need as strong of a moisturizer as women do. A good skincare routine for men would be, morning and night:

  1. Cleanser
  2. Retinol serum (night)
  3. Light moisturizer
  4. SPF (morning)

Women should focus on hydration with their skincare routines:

  1. Cleanser
  2. Hyaluronic acid serum (morning) and Retinol serum (night)
  3. Light moisturizer in the morning, heavier one at night
  4. SPF (morning)

No matter what kind of skin you have, you should talk to your local dermatologist at Premier Dermatology. We can help you figure out what you need more of, less of, and what to stay the same. Every skin is different!
