Hormones play a key role in how your skin ages and the good news for men is that testosterone levels fall far more gradually than oestrogen - the dominant hormone in women’s bodies - at around 1% every year from the age of 30. Thanks to these testosterone levels, men’s skin is about 25% thicker than women’s. As a result, men’s skin ages slower than women’s as it’s this thickness that allows men to produce more collagen, elastin, and sebum (oil), all vital ingredients in maintaining youthful-looking skin.
But while men have some natural advantages in the fight against fine lines and wrinkles, a good daily skincare routine that includes anti-aging creams, moisturisers and serums, will slow their progression. The best anti-aging skincare products for men are designed specifically for the needs of men’s skin, targeting fine lines and dullness and helping to improve skin's firmness and hydration for a fresher face, no matter what your age.
