Facials - maybe it’s not a word you normally associate with the image of a “manly man”. Well, welcome to the modern world of skin care, people! Skin care treatments are not just for women, they’re for everyone. If you’re a human, and you have skin, then you are a perfect candidate for a relaxing, hydrating, and rejuvenating facial treatment. And if you’re a man interested in trying, or learning about, a mens facial, then you’re in the right place.
Man Facials Could Positively Affect Your Masculinity
Sure, it’s a bold statement. But we think it’s true. Here’s why.
Getting a mens facial doesn’t have to mean a full-on spa day or gooey masks. It actually can be a really simple, and fast, treatment. Not all facials are created equal. One that we offer specifically, the men’s hydrafacial treatment, offers the following benefits:
- No downtime, no fussy monthly treatment
- No pain, all gain
- Gentle exfoliation and relaxing resurfacing
- Removes debris from pores
- Nourishes with intense moisturizers that quench the skin
Plus, the hydrafacial saturates the skin’s surface with antioxidants and peptides. This maximizes healthy looking skin to combat signs of aging, sun damage, and uneven texture.
So what does this mean for your masculinity? It means that when all is said and done, your skin looks more attractive and healthy. And healthy skin makes you look more attractive and healthy. See where we’re going here? But maybe the health benefits aren’t enough to overcome the perception of mens facial stigma.
If Man-buns are acceptable, then so are man-facials.
First of all, caring about your overall health, including the health of your skin, is definitely manly. There’s nothing fussy or foo-foo about it. It’s basic healthcare.
Second of all, facials have actually recently been promoted in articles in Men’s Health and GQ as something that men should start to consider adding to their routine. In today’s modern world, activities that have been previously considered only for ladies are starting to become more popular. These articles tout all of the various benefits of getting a facial, like the ones we discussed before.
Some additional “lifestyle” benefits men might achieve from a facial include:
- Getting a smoother shave
- Clearing up any acne and preventing future breakouts
Basically, a licensed aesthetician can truly make you look more robust. And what’s more manly than being “robust”?
When it comes down to it, you need to “do you” and whatever it is that makes you feel great. However, it’s the year 2018 - it’s time to shrug off some preconceived notions about facials and realize that taking care of your skin is an integral part of taking care of your health. There’s no better time to embrace something new and add a hydrafacial to your manly grooming routine. And men, when you start enjoying facials (and we know you will) be sure to book an appointment for two - it’ll definitely be a date to remember!
