JAKARTA, NNC - Men—and not just women—are starting to pay attention to the health of their skin in this new era. There are even several men with faces that are shinier than women. Moreover, there are also several men that look younger than women of the same age, according to Dr Eddy Karta SpKK to NNC.
Eddy said men look younger than women of the same age due to men having more oil glands on their facial skin than women. The oil glands act as a moisturizer that minimizes wrinkles on facial skin.
“Maintenance-wise, men and women are about the same. However, men have more oil glands that moisturize the skin. So, there are times when men look younger than women of the same age,” he said.
He urges women to use anti-aging cream as early as possible to prevent aging on the facial skin. Women are even urged to start using anti-aging team by the age of 25-30 years.
“Not many understand that facial skincare needs to start earlier than when at 30 or 40 years old, because the aging of facial skin has already started at the age of 25 years. (*)
