It just seems that men's skin appears to age better than women’s and most observers will agree that at comparable ages men’s skin looks younger. There are three very good reasons for this.
The first and most important is that most men, since the age of thirteen or fourteen, have been shaving almost everyday, which means they have been exfoliating two thirds of their face daily since they were teenagers. Any form of exfoliation, whether it's chemical or whether it's physical, makes the skin look smoother, lustrous and more even colored.
Second is the difference between normal hormones in men and women. Men have much higher levels of testosterone and testosterone is the primary driver of oil glands. So men's oil glands make more oil and that oily sheen on the surface of the skin just seems to be protecting of aging. But more importantly, that same testosterone causes the oil glands to be thicker, plumper, and more vital and it increases the thickness of the middle layer of skin. Anything that increases the thickness of your skin will delay the emergence of lines and wrinkles.
Lastly, as women become perimenopausal, their estrogen levels fall and falling estrogen levels causes a thinning of the middle layer of the skin. Also, a thinning of the upper layer of the skin (the epidermis) tends to make it become flaky which makes the skin look dull and matte.
So ladies, there are three good reasons why men's skin often looks better than woman's skin, but please understand, I don't make the rules, I just report the facts.
