men sensitive about their skinAccording to a new survey by Gillette*, men are getting evermore sensitive about their skin.

What the men say:
1. 66% of men in 11 countries around the globe say they have sensitive skin. Nearly half say their skin has grown more sensitive over the past five years.

2. 15% describe their skin as extremely sensitive.

3. Two in 5 men blame the weather, with 59% blaming extreme cold � we�re guessing the Brits!

4. 52% blame dryness

What the experts say:
5. Experts say the most likely cause of increased reports of more sensitive skin stem from men�s own sensitivity to male grooming issues. In other words, they care more.

6. The main reason for this, say 66% of the dermatologists, is men�s increasing use of skin care products and procedures such as shaving � shaving rash for example, is a common skin complaint.

7. A whopping 92% of dermatologists surveyed cited UV exposure as a possible reason for skin sensitivity.

8. 63% believe today�s more modern society makes it acceptable for men to open up about their skin problems and seek a dermatologist�s help.

9. Finally, 93% of dermatologists agree that a man�s choice of shaving products, razor and after-shave products matter in men�s perception of facial skin sensitivity. Good news then that the Gillette ProGlide Fusion has special Flexball technology which makes getting into every little contour of your face easy-peasy.
