10 Reasons Men Should Get Facials

11/25/2015 03:59PM ● By Ryan Frisch
You may consider getting a facial as something a little too fussy for the likes of your manly skin. We get it. But the real motivation to get your skin handled by the pros is the same reason you have a mechanic work on your car: We can do it better than you can.

Healthy and Clear Looking Skin

Men's skin tends to produce more oil due to higher testosterone levels. Since most men tend not to cleanse their faces properly (insert bar of soap here) they tend to have more clogged pores which lead to blackheads and pimples.

Most men (no big surprise here) do not exfoliate on a regular basis, if at all! This step is so essential in keeping the skin looking healthy and clear!

Clean Out Blackheads and Clogged Pores

With proper preparation and skin softening techniques, your esthetician will use a skilled method to gently extract clogged pores, blackheads, and impurities without causing harm to your skin.

Better Shaving Experience

This may surprise you here but taking care of your skin, including getting regular facial treatments will make shaving better! Use of dull and dirty razors can cause, razor burn, inflammation, blackheads and pimples. A facial treatment will deep clean and soothe irritated skin. The combination of products we use plus great home care will improve your skin which will create a smoother and better feeling shave. 

Increase Circulation to Encourage a Glow

There is no doubt that when blood circulation slows, the skin’s health is impaired. Aging leads to slowed circulation, which inevitably results in dull, tired looking skin. One important benefit of a facial is a massage to the face.

A Scope for Skin Cancer

Skin cancer is on the rise so it continues to become increasingly important to regularly check your skin for changes to moles and to look out for abnormal skin growths. A benefit of having a professional esthetician work with your skin is that he or she will analyze your skin and bring to your attention any potential skin abnormalities that they feel you should check out with a medical doctor. Sunscreen should be a part of your morning routine 365 days of the year!

Stress Release

Aside from the various skin benefits facials offer, they are also extremely relaxing and immediately de-stress you both physically and psychologically.  Studies show that stress can lead to unhealthy skin, so what’s a better way to eliminate stress and promote healthy skin, than a facial? Schedule so me-time for yourself.

Problem Solve

Whether it’s dry skin, brown spots, redness, irritation, or inflamed acne, a good facial is always customized to focus on what your skin needs to help solve your skin problems. By using the right combination of ingredients, estheticians can really create change in the skin to improve your skin’s appearance to achieve your greatest complexion.
