Do you think getting a facial is something a little too fussy for the likes of your manly skin? Think again!
Skin damage from your shaving routine can’t be fixed with the soap and water you use every day. Probably more than the ladies, guys need facials, thanks to their coarser skin and larger pores. Still not convinced?
Here are three reasons why men should be getting more facials:
Male Skin Produces More Oil
In general, men have higher testosterone levels than women, which helps explain why men produce more oil. When not cleaned properly, oil will clog your pores which can lead to blackheads. Just because men produce more oil doesn’t mean all men have oily skin. Part of the reason facials are so effective is that estheticians understand your skin type and its needs.
You’ll Get a Smoother Shave
Whether it’s everyday or every two weeks, the continuous dragging of a razor across facial skin can cause irritation. Razor burn and inflammation are common consequences of shaving. A facial will deep clean bumps and soothe irritated skin. The smoother your skin, the better and less painful your shave.
Learn How to Take Care of Your Skin
Not only estheticians use better, more effective products that aren’t sold over the counter, they can also show you new techniques on how to apply them at home, the order in which to use them and recommend products that are suitable for your skin type.
