I’m 62 years old now and it occurred to me that there is a major difference between men and women. I know that thought probably comes as a shock to most of you. THe difference I thought of was this.
The average 60 yr old man in North America has spent about 3 hour of his life in caring fro his skin. This includes all aspects of that care as well as even thinking about it. The bulk of that time was spent putting on sun tan lotion of some sort to try and avoid sunburn.
The average 60 yr old woman on the other hand has spent about 3 years of her life trying to care for her skin. This includes moisturizing, defoliating, foliating, peeling, pruning and otherwise gardening the pelt with an array of drugs, oils, pro-biotics, pre-biotics, and botox.
The cost for men is in the range of a few bucks up to maybe a hundred and the cost for women is in the thousands.
It also occurred to me that there really isn’t that great a difference in the general quality of the skin in all these 60 yr olds which leads me to one conclusion.
The women of North America must have significantly worse skin than the men if it takes all this effort and an entire industry to keep them looking approximately the same as their men.
I don’t see how there could be any other answer.
