Skin Care For Men and Women - Are They Really Different?

by Dorothy A. Pela

Let's face it; skin care for men had been a forbidden subject for a long time. You see, up until recently it was not considered a very 'masculine' thing for a man to care for the looks of his face, let alone walk into a store and buy creams or lotions!

But, things have certainly changed. According to sales statistics, the men skin care industry is thriving. Men are becoming more conscious of the way they look and a healthy, young, radiant and smooth male face is an important ticket to success, both on a social as well as on a professional level.

It is true, however, that so far the skin care industry has been geared into designing creams that cater to the needs of the female skin, rather than the male. The question is:

Are there so many differences between skin care for men and women, so as to make necessary the design of wholly different products for the two sexes?

The answer to this question is a no and a yes: No, there are not very distinct differences and yes, there are some subtle differences that should be taken into consideration.

First, the similarities. The basic biological mechanisms that are responsible for aging are the same, regardless whether you are a man or a woman. These are:

1) Depletion of your body's own stock of collagen and elastin.

In case you have never heard of them before, these are two of the most important proteins that are produced by your skin. These are the underlying cause that your skin looks firm and smooth. When you are young, there is no problem, as these proteins are produced in abundance. However, when you get older, their production starts decreasing. That's when wrinkles start to appear and sagging becomes noticeable.

A high quality skin care for men and women should include ingredients that stimulate your skin to produce more collagen and elastin.

One such ingredient that I personally use (by the way, my husband also uses it and loves it) and recommend, is Cynergy TK. This is amazing stuff. It has been clinically proven to stimulate the generation of both collagen and elastin and also help create entirely new cells.

2) The second biological process responsible for aging is skin cell damage by free radicals. These are atoms or groups of atoms that are created primarily by our exposure to the harmful UV sun radiation and the various toxins that we come into contact in our daily lives.

Therefore, a high quality men skin care should include powerful antioxidants that will eliminate those harmful radicals.

One such ingredient is Phytessence Wakame. This has Japanese origin and is all natural, extracted from a kind of seaweed collected from the sea around Japan. It high antioxidant potency has been clinically proven beyond any doubt.

As mentioned above, effective skin care for men should also take into consideration the special needs of male skin.

In contrast to women, men have to shave and they are generally more exposed to the hardships of outdoor activities. Therefore, male skin suffers from inflammation and irritation.

A solution to this particular men skin care need is provided once again by Cynergy TK. By its chemical activity on PGE2 (a substance created from inflammation), it effectively blocks it and so prevents inflammation and redness of the skin.
