Male skincare routines can often be daunting, overwhelming and time-consuming. Whilst males can use any ESPA product, ESPA has specifically designed male skincare products because male skin is biologically different to female skin. Also because of shaving, male skin is a different condition to that of females, in most cases.
While every individuals skin is different, in general male skin is thicker and firmer as it contains more collagen. Males also usually have more sebaceous glands, meaning their skin can be oilier and pores appear larger, as more sebum is produced.
Male skin also ages at a more constant rate than women. Once women reach the menopausal stage, their skin loses elasticity rapidly, meaning ageing appears more noticeable. In men, this happens much later in life.
Daily shaving can also cause irritation, skin to become sensitised and dryness. Shaving removes the upper layer of the skin, exposing it to environmental damage and pollution. This means that male skin is most likely to react more frequently and be sensitive.
A male skincare routine is still a vital part of daily life as it will protect your skin against damage, irritation and premature signs of ageing.
So, What Should You Use?
Exfoliating is a very important step in your skincare routine because males have potentially oilier skin. The ESPA Clarifying Skin Scrub is a revitalising exfoliator to deeply cleanse, clarify and smooth, while protecting the skin’s natural moisture barrier. Fossilised particles gently remove dull skin cells and help unblock pores. Moringa Seed boosts moisture levels, lavender soothes and protects, while Eucalyptus leaves the skin feeling cool and fresh.
Suitable for oily, combination and congested skin types.
