Do you believe that women are from Venus and men are from Mars? We may think that the genders aren’t as different as that statement implies, but the truth is that men often have slightly different needs than women when it comes to taking care of their skin. Men’s skin care lines need to address certain concerns that women don’t have. After all, most women that we know don’t live a lifestyle that’s exactly the same as men!
Irritation and Redness Is a Greater Concern in Men’s Skin Care
Let’s face it, very few women whom we know need to drag a razor over up to a full third of their face daily (or even every several days). Shaving is a reality for men, and it can cause dryness, redness and irritation. Skin care products for men need to address these concerns. That’s why a good men’s skin care line will have soothing and moisturizing agents both to make the process of shaving less irritating and to calm redness afterwards. The Murad Man regimen has been formulated with the harshness of shaving in mind.
Men’s Skin Care Lines Need Sun Block
We certainly don’t mean to imply that women shouldn’t always have a layer of sun block on or that women aren’t active outdoors! However, the male lifestyle often puts an emphasis on outdoor activities, which is why it’s critical that whatever men’s skin care line you choose, your daily moisturizer should have a sun protection factor in it. Murad Man Face Defense® has SPF 15 to protect you from sun damage and the signs of aging that it causes when you’re outdoors.
Men Get Clogged Facial Follicles More Often
Regardless of whether you’re looking specifically for an acne treatment solution or not, the process of shaving can create clogged follicles even if you’re not acne-prone. Ingrown hairs can create bumps, irritation, redness and even breakouts. Men require a daily exfoliating element to clear away dead top layer skin to avoid the unsightly look of clogged follicles either from acne breakouts or shaving fall-out.
A man’s skin is not a woman’s skin, and a man’s skin care concerns are not entirely the same as a woman’s. To learn more about Murad’s skin care products for men, click here.
