Although most skin care products target women, the simple truth is that both men and women want a healthy, glowing skin.
The only reason most articles and books are aimed at women is that women show greater interest in skin care products and are willing to spend more money to look beautiful.
I have to admit, I used to also have this bias. Its not something Im proud to admit. It was just an unconscious cultural bias that I did not even realize that I entertained.
I used to believe that men were not only interested in good skin without having a good shave. One day at a party, a friend asked me after I had just graduated from a beauty college, if I shared my beauty secrets with my husband then. I said something because the men simply were not interested in skin care. We had a long heated discussion in the car that night after the party about my obvious respect for his feelings.
After that incident, I examined skin care for men and, to my surprise, found that men were as interested in having a nice skin as women, but they only feel at home using skin cleaners, moisturizers and toner because of cultural conditioning.
I also learned that it was a small but active cosmetic line for men to keep the skin young and healthy.
Even biologically, although women appear to have softer skin than men, there is not much difference in human skin between the sexes.
After I opened my mind, an interesting thing happened: my skin care clientele only went from women to men. Even though you, as you might expect, were still mostly women, I had many remarkable therapeutic skin care breakthroughs with men.
Interestingly, men seemed to appreciate my advice more than women. I think it was because women used to take care of their skin while the men were happy when they discovered what a difference a skin care management could do for them.
So what skin care information works for both sexes? First, we must look at what damages the skin, and then we have to look at some simple solutions.
What factors are skin aging in both men and women?
Here are the two main reasons why both men and women begin to lose the beautiful skin they had when they were younger:
The depletion of collagen and elastin.
As we age, our skin no longer produces collagen and elastin, two proteins in our skin that hold our skin firmly yet resilient. Consequently, our skins begin to show small wrinkles around our eyes and we begin to develop lines across our boilers. In addition, dark circles surround our eyes, and the skin around our cheeks and under our hooks starts slowly. And if everything is not bad enough, we also notice more age spots and inconsistent skin pigmentation. As a result of these effects due to collagen and elastin loss, it is important that both men and women use products that stimulate the bodys natural production of these two essential proteins.
The effects of a bad diet.
Another important cause of bad skin is excessive damage to free radicals. Skin cells lose their ability to survive this attack by renegade atoms. The antidote is an effective antioxidant. You can get antioxidants in the form of some fruits and vegetables, dietary supplements and current applications.
What I recommend for both men and women
Whether you are a man or woman, you can have a younger skin using the following:
Expand TK. This skin care product has been clinically proven to increase skin moisture, stimulates collagen and elastin production and improves antioxidant levels in the skin.
Nano-Lipobelle H-EQ10 is a powerful antioxidant ingredient that protects your skin from damage to free radicals through all 7 levels of skin. Despite the unknown name, it is actually a potent form of COQ10.
Babassu oil. This comes from an Amazon facility. Rich in softeners, it makes the skin smooth, increases moisture and gives a healthy glow to the skin.
It is my sincere hope to share this information on skin care helps both men and women to rediscover the skins natural beauty.
