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

The skin of the man has characteristics different from that of the woman.

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


This is because men's skin is usually thicker and more lipid (i.e., fatter) than women's. The vast majority of moisturizers that we find on the market are formulated for the skin of women, who usually have a drier and thinner skin than that of men.

Even the" so-called unisex creams " on the background are designed for a female skin. Many of you explain to us that before you could not use facial cream because then you felt the skin too oily and with the feeling that the skin immediately expelled the cream, and that since you use Homo Naturals, at last you can use moisturizing cream, and that's because our products are formulated specifically for men.

Differences between men's skin and women's skin

Even if you have mixed skin, and you use a "unisex" mixed skin cream (but which is basically formulated for women's skin), chances are you still find it too oily.

It should be borne in mind that women's mixed skin is not equivalent to men's mixed skin, that is, men's skin will always be somewhat fatter than women's.

For a man's combination skin, or even for a man with normal skin who resides in a warm and humid area (for example, the entire levante and southern Spain), the texture we recommend is a moisturizing gel, like that of our Anti-Stress Gel, with mattifying effect.

And for a man with normal or dry skin, you should use a specific cream for men, such as our Anti-Stress Cream, since a cream for normal/combination skin of women would still be too fat for a man.
