MEN NEED SOME (SKIN) LOVE TOO

Father’s Day Special

This Father’s Day, we are going to tell you why men need facials! Women swear by facials to get rid of the gunk in their pores and to achieve that silky, smooth complexion and younger-looking skin. But when it comes to men, they usually shun facials like the plague! Somehow, the sad excuse that “my soap can do the job just fine” has managed to survive past the millennia and into our 21st century. A little like cockroaches…

WELL! Let’s just bust that myth once and for all, and show you why men need to go for regular facial treatments, and dare i say… perhaps even more than women!

REASON #1. Men have oilier skin

Well, you SHOULD care! Due to higher testosterone levels, men have more active sebaceous glands, and therefore more pores than women. Furthermore, both their sebaceous glands and their pores are larger than those of women. What this means is higher sebum production, blocked pores and acne. So there!

REASON #2. Men have more pronounced wrinkles and heavier eye bags

The typical male dermis is about 20%-25% thicker than female dermis, but thicker is not necessarily tougher. In fact, men have more pronounced wrinkles as compared to women. The opening in the skull around the eyes is actually larger in men, and there’s less bony support, which makes it more likely for men to have hollow, deep-set eyes that will potentially start to develop bags as they age.

REASON #3. Men have more sensitive skin

Daily shaving stresses the skin and can cause irritation. It removes the uppermost layer of skin cells, exposing immature skin that is particularly sensitive to external influences. Razor burn, inflammation, and irritation from shaving over pimples are daily occurrences that can happen after shaving. And that is how a facial can come in useful – it deep cleans bumps and soothes irritated skin.

REASON #4. Men perspire more

Men usually perspire more than twice as much as women, and are also more prone to perspiring, which is stimulated by an increase in body temperature or metabolism. Irritants like dust and dirt are more likely to stick to moist skin, which can lead to clogged pores.

Now you just need to convince your man that pain is temporary, glory is forever, and screaming like a little girl during extractions can be muffled by the heavy doors at Estetica salons ;)
