Men Get Facials Too!!
Many men think that taking care of your skin is only for women, but did you know men can benefit from facials too!! Not only can you take better care of your skin, you can get a better understanding on why your skin acts the way it does.
What is a Facial?
A facial is a professional treatment designed to improve the skin's appearance. It can include cleansing, exfoliating, extractions, and more. Facials can be relaxing and help us refresh ourselves after a long day, week, or month.
Facials are usually recommended every 4-6 weeks in order to keep up with your skin's natural cell renewal factor. The cell renewal factor (or cell turnover rate) is the process in which our skin produces new skin cells which travel from the lowest layer of the epidermis to the top layer and then shed off the skin. The average adult has a CRF of about 28-40 days, which is why every 4-6 weeks is best to get facials.
What Can Men Benefit From A Facial?
There are so many reasons anyone can benefit from a facial. But what specifically can a male get from one?
Men typically produce more oil. This means they can get acne easier, and clogged follicles are more common. Facials can get you a skincare routine to help with acne, and oily skin. As well as extractions for those blackheads and whiteheads.
Men can also benefit from a facial because of ingrown hairs. This is due to the hair growing into the skin instead of out of the pore. The best way to remove ingrown hairs is extracting, and the best way to prevent ingrown hairs is to exfoliate. Exfoliating helps remove dead skin so that the hair doesn’t get stuck under it and can freely grow out into the pore. And extracting during a facial is the best way to remove them because a professional can make sure to safely remove the hair without causing damage to your skin.
The next reason why men should get facials is to help get that skin under facial hair. Most of the time, specifically the skin under the beard is neglected. So a great way for it to get the attention it needs is to get a facial. This is to ensure all the skin is getting the attention it deserves.
Overall, facials are a great way to relax and take better care of not just your skin, but yourself. Our Gentleman’s facial is best for all skin types. Which includes cleansing, toning, customized exfoliation with steam, extractions, massage, and a nutrient rich mask. It is ideal for anyone!!
