Celebrating Father’s Day and Enhancing Male Skin Health

The Skin: A Vital Organ

Our skin serves as the first line of defence against the outside world. It is equally important for men as it is for women. Yet, many men tend to overlook its care. A solid skincare regime for men offers various health benefits, starting with protection against environmental damage.

Issues such as sun exposure, pollution, dry air and harsh weather conditions can accelerate skin ageing, leading to wrinkles and spots. Daily cleansing, moisturising and the use of SPF can help minimise these effects and maintain the skin’s vitality!

A good skincare routine can aid in the prevention of skin diseases and help identify any unusual skin changes early. Therefore, a skincare routine is not just about looking good; it is also a preventative health measure.

Differences between Men’s and Women’s Skin

Men’s skin differs from women’s skin in several important ways:

  1. Thicker Skin: The deeper layer of men’s skin, called the dermis, is about 20% thicker than women’s dermis. Men tend to have fewer superficial fine lines than women, but they are more prone to deep wrinkles.
  2. Earlier Decline in Collagen: As we age, we produce less collagen, causing our skin to become thinner, saggier and more prone to wrinkles. Men lose collagen at a consistent rate throughout adult life, making them age more rapidly than women.
  3. Pore Problems: Men have larger pores compared to women, which can lead to various skin issues such as acne and blackheads.
  4. Higher Oil Levels: Men have more oil glands and produce about twice as much skin oil (sebum) as women. This excess sebum can clog pores and lead to acne.
  5. Higher Risk for Irritation: Shaving can cause irritation and sensitivity in men’s skin due to added friction and stress. While exfoliation is beneficial, it exposes a more sensitive layer of skin prone to irritation.
Enhance Male Skin Health

To address the unique challenges faced by male skin, we recommend a treatment such as, The Perfect Peel to help tackle some of those concerns. This revolutionary chemical peel can transform your skin, making it look younger, healthier and clearer in just one week. It is suitable for all skin types and requires no pre-peel skin preparation.

Additionally, The Perfect Peel and our Glutaceuticals skincare ranges are designed to penetrate deep into the cellular level of the skin to:

By promoting the production of Glutathione, a key ingredient in our products, we can help all men achieve overall skin health for a radiant, youthful appearance.

Let’s break the stigma around men and dermal fillers!

Forget the stereotypes! Men are increasingly turning to dermal fillers for a refreshed look. These injections can subtly add volume to areas like the jawline and cheeks, enhancing natural features and achieving a more sculpted appearance.

Fillers can be used to:

  • Enhance jawline and chin: Adding volume to these areas creates a sharper, more chiseled appearance.
  • Reduce deep creases: Fillers can smooth out lines around the mouth and nose, creating a more youthful yet still masculine look.
  • Restore lost volume in cheeks: As men age, cheeks can lose volume, making the face appear gaunt. Fillers can replenish this volume for a fuller, more youthful appearance.

The key to successful dermal fillers for men is a natural-looking result. At Renew, we use specific techniques and filler types to subtly sculpt and define features without creating an overly ‘done’ look.

More than just anti-aging:

Dermal fillers aren’t just about erasing wrinkles. They can also be used to enhance natural features and boost confidence. Whether you’re looking for a sharper jawline or simply want to refresh your appearance, dermal fillers offer a minimally invasive option for men.
