Why do men need face moisturizers?
As well as these gendered differences, both men’s and women’s skin suffers over the course of our lifetimes as a result of external influences that affect our skin’s quality and texture, ultimately impacting its future. This includes everything from pollution and sun damage to smoking and lack of sleep, with effects building up over days, months or even years, ultimately reducing our skin’s ability to act as a protective barrier.
When skin is properly hydrated from the inside, however these barriers are reinforced. This helps to counteract damage caused by these external factors, as well as limiting the ability of certain bacteria and allergens to penetrate the skin.
