Men Have Oilier Skin. With thicker skin, men also have more active oil-producing sebaceous glands (sebum) that continue producing oil late into life (women decrease oil production about 20 years sooner than men). These natural oils waterproof and protect skin to keep it soft, smooth and supple.
Men Have Coarser, Thicker Hair. Unlike women, men have coarse, thick hair on their faces, requiring constant facial shaving and upping their risk of irritation and ingrown hairs.
Men Have Bigger Pores. Pumping out natural oils and sprouting hair, men's pores are larger than a women's, which increases the risk of having clogged pores and acne blemish outbreaks.
Men Have Different Lifestyles. Men tend to spend more time outside, so they more frequently expose their skin to sun damage and environmental pollutants.
