Why Gentleman's Facial?
Skin damage from your shave routine or the sun can’t be fixed with the soap and water you use every day. Redness fades, but the underlying problems don’t. In fact, probably more than the ladies, guys need facials, due to their coarser skin, larger pores, and increased chance of sun damage.
Men Produce More Oil
Men’s skin is prone to producing a greater amount of oil owing to high testosterone levels. Oil, in turn, clogs the pores and in conjunction with other impurities results in breakouts, blackheads, and pimples.
Most estheticians 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.
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 moisturizers that an esthetician 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 moisturizer once or twice a day.
The Pros Can Teach You
Estheticians 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?” Estheticians also use professional steamers to open your pores. It’s better than sticking your head over a pot of boiling water…which we know you aren’t doing, right.
It is an incredibly relaxing experience and you are guaranteed to walk out of the facility with hydrated, healthy and radiant skin free from impurities.
