In the last ten years men started to use more skin care products than ever before. It might have to do something with the cosmetic industry, because they realized this part of the market was neglected, so they started to develop men’s grooming products like never before. Metrosexuals are also an important part of the skin care market, and they seem to demand more and more products, while other men follow them, looking for the best skin care for them.
Speaking of necessities, men really do need skin care products. Their skin is different than women’s, with more sweat and oil glands. All that hair follicles on the face (the beard) make their skin much rougher than women’s. Additionally, you can’t simply use your girlfriend’s facial cream if you are a man, because pH of your skin is different than her, and your skin will definitely react in a different manner.
