Should Men Get Facials?
In one word – yes!
Men deal with aging skin, pigmentation issues, acne and dry skin, just as women do. However, men typically have thicker skin, are more sensitive, produce more oil and have larger pores than women. Shaving also presents some male specific concerns including ingrown hairs, dryness and razor burn.
So why should a man get a facial?
You are pretty much guaranteed a more thorough cleaning than you get at home – one that will work to remove buildup and debris that can cause blackheads and acne. Hot steam towels will be incorporated into the treatment and can actually help to treat and prevent a common condition called “falliculitis” or razor bumps. An exfoliation step in the facial will work to even and smooth skin tone and a mask will help absorb excess oil and tighten pores. A proper level of moisturizer will be applied to restore an ideal amount of hydration to the skin. Your esthetician will also incorporate extensive massage of the scalp, face, neck, shoulders, hands and arms which will stimulate circulation and blood flow, relax nerves and muscles, increase oxygen, help to detoxify the skin and promote a smoother, healthier, younger looking complexion. Based on your skin type, your esthetician will help you decide on the best at home skin care routine. It doesn’t have to be complicated or involve a lot of products. It doesn’t have to smell like flowers or perfume. Zama carries straightforward, no fluff, skin care product created for male skin types.
Men, you have skin. It is the largest organ of your body. It does a lot for you. Take some time to return the favor.
