OK ladies, hands up if you've ever tried to get your man to eat better, drink less beer and more water, or to try some of your beauty regime products✋🙋We've all been there, and we're just looking out for their best interests, right?😋With Father's Day coming up this Sunday, September 6th, we thought you and the special men in your lives would benefit from some self-care skin tips to help them look and feel their very best🥰
Men's skin is different to women's, as they have more collagen and elastin fibers, which leads to thicker skin, and therefore, less wrinkles (lucky ducks!😋). But because they have facial hair🧔, their hair glands produce more oil, which can lead to skin complaints such as acne, oily skin and breakouts.
Higher levels of testosterone can also make men's skin more oily, which can lead to open pores getting clogged with sweat and dirt, resulting in black heads and breakouts. As their stress levels increase, it takes a toll on their skin. The human body produces more of the hormone cortisol when we're in a stressed state, and it tells the glands in the skin to produce more oil, so oily skin can become more reactive and sensitive.
Skin sensitivity can be an issue for men, as daily shaving can take it's toll on their skin. While the exfoliation aspect of scrubbing daily with shaving cream can be beneficial, shaving with razors that aren't as new, and not using a calming balm afterwards, can lead to sensitivity and irritable skin.
The good news is that our specially designed facial treatments for men can help with these symptoms, such as our microdermabrasion, which is our most popular treatment. It consists of a deep exfoliation to reduce scarring, acne, age spots, pigmentation, uneven skin tone, fine lines and wrinkles, and it's a great choice for male skin. It is then followed by a cooling collagen mask, which leaves the skin plump, clean and hydrated 🧔
