Facials For Men: How Men Can Benefit from Getting Facials Too…
Fact is… Men spend a lot of time damaging their skin! Shaving, outdoor activities and hazardous work conditions all take their toll.
Men’s skin care has come a long way from the days when dad would just cover his shaving nicks with bits of toilet paper and wash his face with a dried up bar of soap.
Today, more and more men are taking skin care more seriously. Specially designed facials for men that meet the needs of the stubborn (and stubbly) male epidermis coupled with an easy-to-follow daily skin care regimen will keep you looking your best.
Improved Shaving Regimen: Unavoidably, even the best of razors will cause a certain amount of irritation to your delicate facial skin. Aftershave balms and pre-shave lotions will help, but getting regular facials that address this issue can make your skin feel incredible! Wash Away Impurities with Proper Cleansing.
Cleansing is the single most important thing you can do for your face. The use of gentle cleansers to wash away dead skin cells, dust and dirt can remove impurities and cleanse pores, making your skin look and feel healthier. Men’s skin typically has large pores and very active sebaceous glands. While these glands are critical for keeping the skin naturally moist, they can often produce too much oil. Neglecting to wash away the excess oil and dirt can clog your pores, leaving the skin prone to breakouts.
Exfoliation should be included in your skin routine, depending on what type of skin you have. An esthetician can help you determine how often you should exfoliate. An exfoliation with a good skincare scrub helps to rid the skin of dried and dead skin cells along with dislodging dirt that normal washing can’t accomplish. Added bonus, exfoliation also softens hair follicles for a closer, less-irritating shave and you will notice that products such as moisturizer and SPF will absorb into your skin better.
Preventing More Wrinkles: Men are no different than women. We all want to look younger. With so many muscles working to express ourselves, wrinkles start to appear even in our 20′s. While wrinkling is a natural part of the aging process, proper skin care, which includes facials, can minimize them from forming.
1. Moisturize: Showering and shaving open up pores and allow precious water to escape, but a light moisturizer will replenish the skin’s moisture content.
2. Protect: A moisturizer with multispectrum SPF will also provide a critical shield against the sun. Harsh UVB rays cause the skin to burn, but it’s the UVA rays that lead to long-term damage like deep lines and skin cancer. It’s true that proper skincare requires an investment in the health and longevity of your skin, but remember it is the face you’ll have for years to come. It’s just plain old smart!
