People who say ‘beauty treatment’ say ‘women!’ But is this really justified? Research shows that the male skin is on average 20% thicker than that of a woman. The hormone testosterone causes men to produce sebum in larger quantities then women. Sebum makes the skin greasier, and as a result, men are more likely to suffer from pimples and blackheads. In addition to the higher levels of sebum in proportion to women, men will also produce more sweat, causing the male skin to fluctuate more between two extremes, from a greasy skin to a greatly dehydrated skin. As if that were not enough, most men opt to shave daily. Especially after shaving with a razor blade, the skin may exhibit irritation.
