Benefits of Facials for Men

It’s common for men to suffer from redness, razor burn, break-outs, dryness or excessive oiliness.  Until recently, there were very few options for men to treat these conditions in terms of products and regular skin care.

Customized skin care products for men and facials for men can now treat and prevent these common skin conditions from occurring on a regular basis.

Are Men’s Facials Really Different?

The answer is yes!  A facial for a man is designed to combat ingrown hairs, razor burn and more.  Often times men who are suffering from bouts of ingrown hairs kind achieve excellent results with monthly facials and a tailored at home skin care regimen.

While a man’s facial may be similar to a woman’s facial in terms of steps: cleanse, steam, exfoliate, extract, etc, products used for a man will target their specific daily concerns.

A deep cleansing facial for a man can not only extract stubborn in-grown hairs beneath the surface, but a light chemical peel will also remove dead skin cells from the upper dermis, reducing the number of ingrown hairs.  Regular exfoliating at home combined with topical treatments and professional facials can greatly reduce and even eliminate the occurrences of in-grown hairs.

Treating In Grown Hairs and Razor Burn At Home

Salicylic acid is the one active substance that can visibly improve razor bumps. It is a dermatological-grade ingredient that exfoliates, moisturizes, clears pores and can help prevent infection. Use a post-shave product with salicylic acid so it remains on your skin the whole day.  Best of all, salicylic acid can be purchased over-the-counter in the skin care aisle at your local pharmacy.
