1. Men's skin ages slower than women. True or false?

True and false. Men's and women's skin differ in terms of nature and genetics. With a higher collagen content, male skin is typically 20% to 25% thicker than that of women. It also means that it has a firmer appearance and more resilience against the initial signs of skin aging. The first lines appear around age 30 (in contrast to 25 in women) due to the slower wrinkling of the skin. However, the collagen content of male skin reduces at a constant rate and well before andropause while female skin is affected later in life, especially after menopause. This means that men tend to be more prone to deep wrinkles and more noticeable skin sagging. The eye area is also impacted, with the formation of dark circles and swelling that gives the face a tired appearance. But don’t worry. If you adopt a consistent, preventive, and corrective skincare routine, you can combat the tell-tale signs of aging.

2. Men's skin is oily. True or false ?

True. Men produce twice the amount of sebum as women due to increased levels of hormones. Consequently, they are more prone to getting oily, shiny skin and imperfections such as pimples and blackheads. Men also have more sebaceous glands, resulting in more pores that are often dilated. That said, men can also have dry skin due to their genes or internal and external factors such as stress, pollution, sun or cold exposure, etc. Regardless of its nature, daily hydration is essential to protect and preserve the skin from signs of aging. In fact, hydration is your first line of defense against fine lines and wrinkles. Men’s practice of shaving is another reason to adopt a daily skincare routine using moisturizing products with soothing active ingredients. The shaving process stresses and weakens the skin and removes surface skin cells, resulting in irritation, a burning sensation, redness, and other discomforts .

3. Four products to improve your daily skincare routine

Follow a simple, effective, easy-to-follow skincare routine in the morning and evening to achieve healthy, radiant, and hydrated skin.

Step 1 : Begin with Oligo Cleansing Gel, rich in marine extracts, to remove sebum and impurities from the skin. Its soap-free formula gently cleanses and purifies the epidermis without causing damage or dryness, leaving you with perfectly detoxified and mattified skin.

Step 2 : Following shaving (or after using Oligo Cleansing Gel in the evening), apply Marine Toner. It is formulated with seawater, cornflower floral water, and Salicornia extracts to tighten pores without irritating and to soothe and purify the skin. It gifts your complexion a refreshing splash of vitality!

Step 3 : Proceed with Tissue Serum. This results-driven treatment with marine collagen mineralizes, tones, soothes, and hydrates the skin. The serum quickly melts into the epidermis to target the appearance of fine lines, under-eye bags, and dark circles.

Step 4 : Complete your routine with Marine Emulsion , an Anne Semonin must-have that hydrates and strengthens the skin. The product’s algae extract regenerates and soothes the epidermis, and its light, non-greasy texture makes it suitable for those with a combination or oily skin. 

 Anne Semonin pro tip : Apply Exfoliating Mask efor even better skincare results. It hydrates the skin and helps to unclog pores and “clean” facial hair through the ingredients’ exfoliating properties. Use it once a week to prevent ingrown hairs and imperfections.
