Men have very different skin than women. Men’s skin usually has larger pores, most commonly on the nose area, meaning it is oily and often times has more blackheads. Men’s skin is about 25% thicker than women. In addition to being thicker, men’s skin also has a tougher texture. This is why men and women’s skin care routine can be completely different. Your wife’s skin care may not be best suited for your skin type.
