The BSKIN MATTE BLACK Line for Men is a simple 3 step program designed for maximum results with minimum effort. The ingredients in the MATTE BLACK Line act synergistically to heal and protect the skin, control sebum production and tighten pores for an energised, fresh appearance.
Men’s skin is about 25% thicker than women’s as testosterone increases the thickness of collagen and elastin in the epidermis, leading to tougher, rougher skin. As a result, men typically require more potent skincare products to ensure that the ingredients penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin.
Men also have larger, more numerous and more active oil glands than women, which explains why men tend to be more prone to acne, blackheads and clogged pores. Men also have a tendency to have more dehydrated skin, which may be aggravated by after-shave products with high alcohol content.
To combat these problems, men require dedicated skincare products which focus on controlling oil production while keeping skin well-hydrated.
