Gender-Neutral Skincare

13 December, 2019 | posted by Carly Poore

Everyone has unique skin.

There are differences in skin tones and types, and as a result, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to skin care. But what about skin differences between men and women? How different are they and is Epionce for everyone?

“There are differences in skin based on gender due to different ratios of oestrogen and testosterone,” according to Carl R. Thornfeldt, MD, founder of Epionce. Hormones impact skin barrier function and thickness. In women, says Thornfeldt, oestrogen rapidly decreases around menopause, increasing the incidence of sensitive skin. Alternatively, as men age, testosterone levels decrease, resulting in more profound clearance of acne blemishes by age 30.

To help combat changes in skin during hormonal shifts, Dr. Thornfeldt says using a Epionce Renewal Facial product is key to a healthy, hydrated barrier. Epionce provides key active botanicals in cosmetically-elegant, clinically proven formulas that can be tailored to any skin type or concern – regardless of skin type, gender or age.

How Epionce Helps

In practice, Dr. Thornfeldt recommends the core Epionce regime for everyone at any age: cleanserLytic and Renewal Facial product for skin type. The simple regime is easy-to-use and will provide optimal skin barrier benefits for visibly healthy skin for men and women alike.
