Facial treatments have been traditionally viewed as exclusively a feminine activity. Men are quickly learning that its not only women who benefit from facial treatments. Many men are putting their reservations aside and taking the facial plunge. Readers might be surprised to learn that the motivation for facial treatments is not all about vanity. Below, we explain exactly why men need facial treatments just as much as women.
One of the primary reasons why men are flocking to spas for facial treatments is their growing interest in looking and feeling young. Facials are incredibly relaxing and help to reduce stress levels. This not only makes men feel young but it also decreases their chances of developing wrinkles and reduces those that have already formed. Male facials also involve the use of steam towels that are used to eliminate razor bumps, also known as folliculitis. A face without razor bumps and wrinkles typically looks much younger than one with these aesthetic imperfections.
A facial will also attack the crow’s feet wrinkles that develop through age at the edges of the eyes. A facial therapist will thoroughly massage the muscles around the eye edges so well that they become tightly toned, making the crow’s feet much less noticeable.
Facials deeply cleanse the skin’s pores to eradicate gunk and debris that leads to blackheads. The skin is exfoliated with a smooth scrubbing that creates an evenly toned skin complexion. After exfoliation, the face is massaged and a special mask is placed on the skin to filter out oils, grime and other impurities. This mask also shrinks the skin’s pores very tightly. Finally, a moisturizer will be rubbed into the skin to add hydration. Plenty of therapists will apply sunscreen after the moisturizer just for an added layer of protection for the newly revitalized skin. Men with beards can also have a facial treatment performed. The therapist will apply the treatment and mask to the cheeks, nose and forehead.
The result of this elaborate process is a fresh looking face that looks as good as it possibly can. More people will notice a man who’s had a facial treatment. More importantly, he’ll feel much more confident. It really brings the hidden beauty out into the open. Why should only women benefit from these advanced techniques?
No man should have to be self-conscious about his looks. If he is hyper aware of his unsightly appearance, he’ll lack the confidence that he needs to be successful in the professional world as well as in the dating world. Facial treatments get rid of those pesky blackheads on the nose by extracting oil out of the face. The truth is that women tend to notice subtleties like blackheads and they often punish men for their lack of facial hygiene whether consciously or subconsciously.
Most men will complain that they have ingrown hairs as a result of shaving. A facial treatment applies exfoliating enzymes and hot steam to make the skin flexible enough so that these hairs can be extracted. The result is a handsome man that has the confidence that he craves. He can look for love without feeling concerned about his image and he can be an extrovert in the professional realm without feeling as though his looks are holding him back.
Most people will be surprised to learn that facials relieve allergies. Men who suffer from nasal allergies should ask the facial therapist to apply pressure point therapy to thoroughly massage his sinuses. Plenty of people have reported less nasal irritation after this aspect of a facial treatment.
