Dr. Sam Speron Agrees With New Studies Explaining The Difference In Skin Aging Between Men and Women

Park Ridge, IL (PRWEB) July 15, 2013

If you put one male and one female right next to each other, you may notice that the majority of men will look much younger than the women.

It is well known that women may live longer than men. It is also believed that men do not age faster than women but simply get frailer. Women have lived longer than men in every era and in many different countries. In the 80’s in the USA, the estimated life expectancy at birth was 77.5 years for women and 70 years for men. But do women age significantly slower than men?

One area where age has a major impact is our skin. Researchers show that men’s skin ages differently than women’s skin. If you put a same-aged female and male next to each other, you may notice that the male will usually look younger than the female. This is because men secrete slightly more sebum or oil on the skin than women, making them sweat more and allowing them to produce more hair. Individuals with oily skin commonly have thicker skin layers, enabling them to store more fat and water in the skin’s papillary layer and nutrients in the subcutaneous layer (also known as the ‘Water Tank’ Layer). In comparison, a person with dry or dehydrated skin will have thinner skin layers and is therefore unable to store mass deposits. We all have the same amount of layers in our skin. The difference is the size of the layers varies for different people with different skin types. Men’s skin is actually 25% thicker than women’s skin. This is a why men’s skin may look younger women’s skin.

One of the reasons women may live longer than men are their advantages in terms of cardiovascular disease such as heart attack and stroke. Studies show that women usually develop these problems in their 70’s or 80’s, which is 10 years later than men. Men usually develop these diseases in their 50’s or 60’s. For a long time, researchers believed that these differences were due to estrogen. However, recent studies have actually shown that this may not be the case after all.

Although researchers have supported allegations on what type of skin may age quicker, one’s skin is also affected by numerous external factors, such as the environment and a daily skin care routine. Beneath the surface, skin is affected by a more permanent factor - a patient’s genes.

“In either men or women, the best way to slow skin aging is to be sure to use a sunblock with an SPF of at least 30 every time you step outside. This habit will help reduce the aging effects of the harmful UV rays to your skin,” notes Dr. Speron a board certified plastic surgeon and consumer advocate. “Men and women have different skin properties but sunblock, proper nutrition, regular exercise and getting a good night’s sleep are vitally important for both.”

Dr. Speron is the founder and medical director of Dr. Speron Plastic Surgery. He is board certified with the American Board of Plastic Surgery and an active member of both the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS).
