What with all this talk regarding Equal Pay Day, you’d think that someone would stand up to point out the flagrant inequalities between men and women’s skin (kidding, kidding). In all seriousness, though, men do have some distinct advantages when it comes to the aging process, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t ways to level out the playing field.
“In general, men have the advantage when it comes to aging because their skin is 20 to 30 percent thicker than women’s, which decreases sagging,” Nicholas Perricone, MD, told ELLE.com.
According to the news source, women can take matters into their own hands by using products rich in retinol, which helps promote cell turnover and collagen production.
All being said, it’s just as important to celebrate the fact that you’ve got such delicate features to begin with – and with a longer average lifespan than men, women have more time to preserve their feminine countenances. Taking the best possible care of yourself is easy when you’ve got high quality beauty products at your fingertips every day, so treat yourself to only the best.
