For men, use a natural deodorant, and for women, use a day cream. Is it possible that our skin is completely different? From color to name, the way skincare products for women and men are marketed differs. According to a study conducted by the New York Department of Consumer Protection in 2015, care products marketed to women cost up to 13% more than similar products marketed to men.
Does a natural deodorant for men need to be different from women's?
People try to focus on product selection in adulthood based on which jar makes them feel more masculine or feminine. We believe it is our choice, but it is a matter of psychology and the environment in which we grow. From a young age, we are taught that certain colors and products are feminine and others are masculine. Because the habit takes 21 days to form, we may believe that we are choosing not to be programmed by the marketing world.
True, men's skin is about 20% thicker than women's due to higher levels of collagen and elastin, as well as a tendency to produce more oil. The American Academy of Dermatology, on the other hand, states that the basics of our daily skincare regimen should be the same for both men and women. Instead of focusing on products for men or women, the skin type: normal skin, sensitive skin, oily skin, dry skin, or combination skin could be the focus.
Compare the ingredients of skincare products
It may seem unbelievable at first, but if you compare the ingredients in male and female skin products and ignore the aromas, you'll quickly notice that we're very similar. Men's and women's creams, balms, gels, and serums often have the same basic ingredients. In addition, both men and women require skin-tightening and moisture-inducing products.
If you're still not convinced, consider how to deal with a variety of skin problems. There are no gender differences in the products used to treat eczema or rosacea, for example. When it comes to sweat odor removal, there are no gender differences. So, how should we approach our daily skincare differently?
Everyone is welcome to use MaiWistik's collection, including women, men, and children. Each product can be used in a variety of ways. It's more important to know what's inside your jar than the color of the tie that adorns the box. After all, if we want to live in a society that values environmental preservation and reduces waste, the only logical next step is to become accustomed to redistributing skincare products. Why should we cook everything twice at home when the ingredients are nearly identical? Don't make the mistake of thinking that men and women require different Estonian natural cosmetics or even different brands.
