Skin Care 4 Men

Healthier more youthful-looking skin appeals to all of us and men today are more conscious of their health, wellbeing and appearance than ever before.

Proper care of the skin and using the right kind of skin products will help to achieve good skin health - taking regular care is a must regardless of gender. Yet, some of us, especially men, don’t want to have to invest extra time, effort or money to care for the skin.

Men’s Health Month

The week leading up to Father’s Day is known as men’s health week. Recognizing and preventing men’s health problems is not just a man’s issue. Because of its impact on wives, mothers, daughters and sisters; men’s health truly is a family issue.

How you can help the men in your life?  By sharing the best skincare practices with them!

Make it a healthy month, review current lifestyle choices and make adjustments.  Encourage a diet with less sugar intake, regular exercise to get heart rate up, make time for R & R and take good care of face and body.

1. Wash face daily. 2. Allow 3-5 minutes (in shower if possible) for cleanser to prepare the skin before shaving. 3. Rinse razor frequently throughout the shave for best results. 4. Shaving against the grain is the #1 cause of ingrown hairs. 5. Wear sunscreen. 6. Do not smoke!

Skin Serum makes a difference

A specific serum is the most important step in a daily grooming routine to promote overall skin health.  A quick and potent skin serum will bring the most effective results + it only takes seconds to apply - a big bonus if you value quickness and efficiency. A serum’s small molecule delivery system goes where no moisturizer has gone before to transport a daily dose of vitamins, antioxidants, amino acids and nutrients to feed and nourish the skin.

Just the facts

A man’s skin is generally thicker, more sensitive and produces more sebum than a woman’s. Due to shaving, men also have to combat ingrown hairs, dryness and razor burn at times. In addition, studies have shown that male skin cells carry fewer antioxidants and as a result, will form more and deeper facial lines and hyper pigmentation (age spots).

Perfectly Rugged Men's Facials

A monthly facial will also make a difference in skins appearance, the overall health of the skin, and also reduce stress from day to day challenges. Professional facial treatments are beneficial no matter gender – they provide deep-cleansing, exfoliation of dead skin cells, and removal of impacted pores and skin lesions. Treatments may vary depending on your time, skin type, and skin condition.

As an inexpensive alternative to other more invasive treatments, facials are the perfect way to renew your skin with marked improvements in tone, balance, wrinkles and photo-aging. 

Our unique men’s facials are designed for male skin to counteract the effects of under-eye circles, lack of time, stress and daily shaving which can result in dull, lifeless skin. Inspired by traditional barber techniques, these customized facials use steaming towels to comfort the gentleman's skin and a stimulating facial massage to provide skin with a clean, youthful appearance. The exclusive combination of highly effective products that adapt to the needs of each skin type and the comforting massages for the scalp, neck and shoulders will transport any man to a state of total relaxation.
