Male Care vs Fem Care - What's The Difference?
Everybody needs to stay clean, but—like most things in life—there's a big difference between what women need to do to keep clean versus the actions men have to take to make sure their manliness is in check. Sure, there are plenty of soaps, suds, and solutions that are seemingly fit for both sexes, but the truth of the matter is, there's a science to every body-embodying element.
The Secrets About Sebaceous Glands
Skin is skin, right? Well, yes, but only to a certain extent. You see, men tend to have more sebaceous glands than women. These are the oil-producing pores that keep skin lubricated throughout the day. Having more (or less) sebaceous glands actually determines the skin products that are best for you.
Women have fewer sebaceous glands, meaning their skin doesn't produce oily lubrication at the same speed men do. They need gentler products that won't strip the skin of its natural hydrating sources. Harsh ingredients and detergents can do a lot of damage to women's sensitive skin.
Men have more sebaceous glands, keeping their skin hydrated at all times. The problem is, that hydration often turns into an oily mess, and only the right cleansers can balance proper hydration while removing the added layer of goo. Manscaped's Crop Cleanser is specially formulated for men, washing away the unnecessary oils that can leave a man smelling bad while retaining the good oils that keep his skin hydrated right where they belong.
The Real Truth About Razors
It's no secret that many razors tend to go up in price as soon as they turn pink. Of course, we're just talking about the razors you'd get at your local grocery store, which aren't really optimal for either sex. In reality, the precious parts razors are responsible for certainly do require tools made specifically for the anatomy they'll be making aesthetically pleasing.
Women need razors that are able to shave larger surfaces (legs and underarms, for example). Proper razors that are specifically made for women have larger blades with rounder heads that are designed to guide the hair under the razor. The acrobatics involved with shaving a woman's legs are far different from the motions a man must undergo. A woman who's taking care of her bikini line can get away with grocery store razors when she's in a bind, but when a man's taking care of this below-the-belt region, there's no room to compromise on the elements used in the endeavor.
Men who are into making their masculine parts attractive and approachable need tools specifically designed for manscaping. The Plow, for example, is a single-blade, double-sided razor that's designed to move around a man's private area without inflicting uncomfortable razor burn or irritation. Its job is to protect ultra-sensitive skin while leaving behind an extra sense of refinement and smoothness.
Private Affairs and Stink "Down There"
Both genders can present unpleasant odors in their nether regions. The smells that emanate from the underwear typically arise for very different reasons, however.
Women may present smells related to health issues. Sure, bad hygiene will certainly have its hand in the creation of a smelly situation, but women who shower regularly and use proper cleansers may still need to see their doctors if there's an odor coming from down below. Generally speaking, wet wipes and feminine sprays can keep a woman feeling fresh throughout the day.
Men, on the other hand, are constantly battling bacteria buildup around their balls. No matter how active (or not) a man is, his private parts are still sharing some pretty congested real estate, tightly packed together inside his briefs or boxers. Ball sweat has long been a burden of men throughout the ages, but it's actually not the sweat, per se, that's causing the stink. In fact, body odor of any sort occurs when the bacteria living on the skin encounters sweat and begins breaking it down into acids. If a man were to have sweaty balls that didn't have any bacteria on them, the stench would likely never arise.
Alas, a man's genitalia is a giant breeding ground for bacteria, given the confined space and extra skin folds in which colonies can preside. You probably won't ever see a woman shopping for ball deodorant (for obvious reasons), but every man should have a pH-balanced product, such as Manscaped's Crop Preserver, at his disposal. The residue- and oil-free, anti-chafing liquid talcum-like gel promotes antibacterial protection. In other words, it's a man's balls' best friend.
The Principle Differences in Pubes
Although both genders have pubic hair, the way in which people approach it tends to differ from gender to gender.
Women commonly wax their private parts, particularly during swimsuit season. Some women prefer to keep the main part of the muff, while removing the straggly hairs that could bring unwanted stares; others prefer to take it all the way down to the skin from all angles. When it comes to simply maintaining the brief-enclosed area, women may opt for a bikini trimmer, which is a small device that's only intended to go around the bikini line.
Men do have the option of waxing, but it's seldom recommended. If you're not already aware, the scrotum is a sensitive area that's not meant for the application of hot liquids or abrasive pulling. While the idea may seem funny at first, the end result is often severely painful and has sent many a men to the emergency room. Men who want to keep their scrotums safe while still staying sexy are best to stick with shaving. Pick the right trimmer, such as Manscaped's The Lawn Mower 2.0, to ensure you're using a hygienic tool that's meant to make sure your important parts are taken care of. Leave the waxing for the ladies, less you want to see what your emergency room co-pay looks like firsthand.
