Regardless of age, men have a higher density of collagen within their skin than women. This is why women appear to age faster than men of the same age. Its even been said that women are visually about 15 years older than men of the same age in terms of collagen maintenance.
Why do females age faster than males?
Thats because the drop in oestrogen with the menopause also cuts the production of collagen – the protein in skin that gives it its elasticity. As a result, between the ages of 50 and 60, womens faces age at three times the speed of mens (with a saggier jawline, folds around the nose, and thinner lips developing).
Do boys or girls age faster?
Girls physically mature faster than boys on a physical level as well due to the quicker process of puberty. Girls undergo puberty earlier than boys by about 1-2 years, and generally finish the stages of puberty quicker than males due to their differences in biology.
