Gendered Moisturizers

While many moisturizers are marketed to a general market, you will find that there are others specifically targeted towards either men or women. So, is this nothing but a marketing gimmick, or is there actually a benefit to buying a gender-specific moisturizer?

Indeed, there are physical differences in the skin of men and women. Men’s skin is generally thicker and less sensitive to irritation, and it produces a greater amount of oil. Men need something that is less likely to trigger acne outbreaks, while women require greater protection from the sun. Women’s skin can also more easily be aggravated by fragrances, which is ironic, since fragrant moisturizers tend to be marketed to women more often than men.

One thing that men and women have in common is that they can both benefit from a proper application of Botox. Contact our Tacoma Botox clinic to learn more!
