Skincare for men

We’re kicking November off with men in mind - so strong, fearless and resilient, yet also gentle, sensitive and vulnerable. Well, at least when it comes to their skin. :) We have compiled a few tips and tricks to make their daily care routine easier and offer quick solutions for optimal results; just the way they like it best. ;) And if their ladies are reading this, take it as a little tip for a present or just some pampering.

Even though male skin is generally considered to be very hardy and undemanding, this is not entirely the case. While it is true that male and female skin differ in a lot of ways, that doesn’t mean that men don’t need a little support, care and protection here and there too. ;)

“Because I like to cycle in my spare time, my skin is dry and very sensitive in certain places, especially during winter. I have always loved using Hemptouch’s Soothing CBD Skin balm, both for myself and my daughter. I like it because it instantly soothes redness and protects my skin from the cold.” ~ Marko Sladič, CEO and co-founder of Hemptouch

What are the differences between male and female skin?

  • Male skin is thicker,
  • has a higher collagen content,
  • increased secretion of sebum and sweat glands,
  • produces keratin faster.

Most of these characteristics are due to hormonal activity.

For women, estrogen helps collagen to form, but this collagen collapses during menopause, leading to drier, less elastic skin and the appearance of the first wrinkles.

Meanwhile, male skin is predominantly influenced by testosterone, which is responsible for greater skin volume, i.e., thicker skin and higher collagen density.

Nature definitely favours the male population when it comes to ageing, since wrinkles appear later on their faces than on those of the fairer sex; however, the ageing process is still generally faster for them. Shaving is also a factor that has some influence on the condition of the skin, as it inadvertently removes part of the surface layer of the skin in addition to the hairs, resulting in numerous micro-injuries, cuts, inflammation and, in some cases, ingrown hairs. That is exactly why male skin also needs some care and extra help to stay soothed, healthy and youthful for as long as possible.

The perfect skincare before, during and after shaving

1. step: Cleanse your skin twice daily with the Purifying Face Cleanser - also recommended after increased physical activity. Using the face cleanser is particularly important before shaving, because clean skin results in significantly less inflammation and fewer ingrown hairs. On top of that, it makes the shaving itself much easier. It is recommended to shave immediately after showering or to wash your face with warm water beforehand to soften the hairs.

2. step: Once you’re done shaving, rinse your face with cold water to close the pores and then apply the Soothing CBD Skin Balm to slightly damp skin. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can also use the Moisturising Bright Essence before the balm - it’s the perfect first moisturising step that soothes, hydrates and revitalises the skin. The product is entirely oil and alcohol-free, as well as fast-absorbing. Alcohol can be quite damaging to male skin after shaving because it dries out the skin, clogs pores and accelerates the appearance of ingrown hairs.
