Korean Men’s skincare: Innisfree and O HUI products
Skin care is for all, regardless of gender, age and lifestyle. The skin is the biggest organ in the human body and our first line of defense against diseases, and sickness in our outside environment. Hence, skincare is a must for everybody.
That skin care is a field that only concerns women is an age old notion. Today, more and more men are engaging in skincare not only for aesthetic purposes but more importantly for health. Skin care is more than just making your skin look better, fresher, and younger for longer, it is about making your skin healthier and stronger to be resistant to diseases. We all are prone to the cumulative damaging effects of the sun as well as exposure to pollution to our environment. Hence, skin care should equally be a concern for everyone.
Skin care products for men
The skin of men and women are the same and different. They share the same characteristics, functions and composition. They are also different in some levels because of gender differences. For one, hormones in mend tend to produce more oil than that of women. Men’s skin are generally more hairy then women. Thus, they tend to shave more frequently which exfoliates the skin and result to dryness.
Moreover, there are also socio-cultural factors that make men skin different than women. For instance, more men are usually exposed to the ultra violet rays of the sun because of the nature of their work and are engaged in physically demanding work. This makes their skin more rough and thick. Women on the other hand, are more expected by society to have soft and younger looking skin because they women in general are the modern standard of beauty.
In general, men can also use skincare products for women, because they contain practically similar ingredients for skin care. However, the differences emanating from differences in hormones and socio cultural lifestyles also resulted for the need skincare products that are specially formulated to address the unique needs of men.
