Men And Wrinkles

 

Skin accounts for about 16% of the average man's total weight and covers about 20 sq feet (61 sq meters)! Okay that should satisfy the male brain for the statistics. Your skin is a big part of your body.

The role of the skin is to act as a protective barrier from bacteria, sun damage and evaporation.

Wrinkles appear in some men as young as 20, but overall, men tend to get wrinkles later in life than women. This is due to:

  • male skin type
  • hair follicles providing some protection on the face
  • more greasy skin
  • constant exfoliation from shaving, activating skin renewal
  • higher levels of testosterone [debated]

 

Photodamage

The number one cause of wrinkles is photodamage – sun damage from over exposure to Ultraviolet UVA and UVB rays. As men tend to work outdoors more than women, and are more reluctant to use sunblocks, it makes sense that men generally suffer more sun-related damage to their skin than women, in spite of its more robust nature.
