Men’s skin ages at a different rate than women’s

Fact. Research shows that female skin actually ages faster than that of their male counterparts.

Researchers, who published their study in the peer-reviewed journal Optics Letters, discovered that women’s skin ages faster than men’s using laser imaging to examine and measure the amount of damage from sun exposure and aging on skin. The culprit of this accelerated aging? Collagen production declines with age in both sexes, but women lose it more rapidly than men. Skin’s suppleness is determined by collagen and elastin—fibers beneath the skin that give it structure and contour—and they are key to maintaining a youthful look. When collagen weakens, our skin loses its firmness, resulting in wrinkles, creases, sagging and more.

But we do have good news! While genes and gender play a role (20 percent) in how we age, the appearance of wrinkles, lines, spots and more can improve with regular use of the right ingredients and formulas. Rodan + Fields’ REDEFINE Regimen was specifically formulated to address the concerns of aging skin with powerful ingredients, like peptides and hyaluronic acid.

So although women technically age faster than men, with the right skincare, they can defend their skin against time and might even end up looking better tomorrow than they did today.
