Differences in male skin and female skin

What are the differences between men's and women's skin?

Men's skin has different characteristics than women's.

That's why it's so important use Specific products for men's skin care. Otherwise, if the products we use are not formulated for our skin type, we may have problems with excess sebum, shine, But also peeling or even redness.


This is due to the fact that man's skin is usually thicker and more lipid (that is, more fat) than that of women. The vast majority of facial creams that we find on the market are formulated for women's skin, which tends to have drier and finer skin than men's.

Even so-called unisex creams, deep down, are designed for female skin.

Many of you explain to us that before you couldn't use anti-aging Cream because then you felt your skin too oily and with the sensation that the skin immediately expelled the cream, and that since you use Homo Naturalsfinally you can use anti-aging Cream, and that's because our products are specifically formulated for men.

Differences between men's skin and women's skin

even if you have mixed skin, and you use a unisex face cream for combination skin (but which is basically formulated for women's skin), you will most likely still find it too oily.

Keep in mind that combination skin for women is not equivalent to combination skin for men, that is, men's skin will always be somewhat oilier than women's.

In the mixed skin of man, or even for a man with normal skin who lives in a hot and humid area (for example, all of Levante and southern Spain), the texture we recommend is a moisturizing gel, like ours Anti-Stress Gel, with a mattifying effect.

Y for a man with normal skin or Dry Skin, you should use a specific face cream for men, such as our Anti-Stress Cream, as a cream for normal/combination skin for women would still be too oily for a man.
