Most men don’t think twice about skin care. They might wash their face with some soap and water, or use the same “all in one” body wash that they use for their feet and armpits. But the truth is, there are many reasons why men should pay extra attention to their skincare routine, as there are some unique challenges that men face that women don’t. Regular facials are an important part of maintaining a good skincare routine, because:

It helps for a smoother shave

Shaving can take its toll on skin, especially more sensitive skin, and can lead to bumps and irritation. A gentle cleansing can lead to a smoother and cleaner shave, and a facial can soothe any inflammation or razor burn caused by a dirty or dull razor.

Male skin is more prone to acne

Since men usually have thicker skin, higher collagen density, larger pores and more oily skin, this means that men are more prone to acne and breakouts. Testosterone causes their skin to produce more oil, and since a lot of men don’t exfoliate, it means that this oil settles into the pores. Therefore, clearing out the pores through facials can prevent breakouts and prevent them from becoming enlarged.

Because no one knows your skin like an expert

After analysing your skin type, an aesthetician will treat your face with the perfect amount of attention it needs, providing it with the appropriate level of moisture you need to nourish your skin. They can also help you pinpoint any problem areas and answer any questions you might have about how to handle certain issues. A facial will also help you remove dead skin cells, leaving your face feeling refreshed and looking younger.

It’s a great way to relax

Almost every facial includes a refreshing massage for your face and neck, which is necessary to increase blood flow to these areas, as well as clear out toxins and tone skin and facial muscles. Smoother, healthier looking skin AND a relaxing massage? Definitely sounds like a win-win!
