Mens Skin

There are many men who pay a lot of attention to their body and health. However, most of them forget about the fact that our skin is the largest organ of our body. This means it should be the first thing we pay attention to!

Many Dermatologists suggest that Facials are more important for men as compared to women. Men have rougher skin with larger pores as compared to women. Large pores not only means more visibility when it comes to a dirty face, but also higher exposure rate for environmental hazards.

Facials can help reduce pore size and keep the skin free from oils that could attract unwanted particles and dirt your skin doesn’t need. It can also help the skin look a little less rugged, making a shaving a more pleasant experience. It also keeps men from having additional skin problems and concerns, like skin tags, age spots, and more.

It’s also believed that men find facials very relaxing and can help in reducing stress. A facial can have a very big effect on a person’s life. It can help boost confidence, self-esteem, and overall outlook in life.

1. Men Produce More Oil

In general, men have higher testosterone levels than women, which helps explain why men produce more oil. When not cleaned properly, oil will clog your pores and can lead to blackheads, which can lead to pimples. Most aestheticians will perform extractions during a facial, which is the very precise removal of oil and dirt that’s clogging pores. Do this yourself at home and risk serious skin damage, but in the right hands, the result is clean, clear skin.

Just because men produce more oil doesn’t mean all men have oily skin. Part of the reason facials are so effective is that aestheticians understand your skin type and its needs. For dry skin types, you’ll need a facial that leaves your skin hydrated and moisturised. If you have oily skin, you will need a facial that decreases your shine, shrinks your pores and exfoliates your skin.

2. You'll Get a Smoother Shave

Whether it’s everyday or every two weeks, the continuous dragging of a razor across sensitive facial skin can cause irritation. Razor burn, inflammation, and irritation from shaving over pimples are common consequences of shaving. A facial will deep clean bumps and soothe irritated skin. The combination of exfoliation, essential oils, masks, and moisturisers that an aesthetician typically applies will address shaving’s side effects and make your skin smoother than ever. The smoother your skin, the better and less painful your shave. Even if you aren’t worried about wrinkles, this is one of the best reasons to slap on some moisturiser once or twice a day.

3. The Pros Can Teach You

Aestheticians use better, more effective products that aren’t sold over the counter. They can show you new techniques on how to apply products, the order in which to use them, and explain why. Chances are, you’ll be relaxed and if you want to check out, fine. But you can use this opportunity to ask questions. “What are you putting on my face?” “Why is that product going on first?” Aestheticians also use professional steamers to open your pores aiding the absorption of beneficial products.
