Men. Who. Mask. Need we say more?
While we certainly still see more women in our skin clinic than men, don’t be fooled because according to research from Roy Morgan, men are certainly buying and using skincare more than ever before (And it’s about time!).
It is important for both men and women to maintain healthy, functioning skin through treatments and facials; but did you know way we treat skin can actually vary from male to female? Men’s skin tends to be thicker, with larger hair follicles and can produce two times more sebum due to increased testosterone production. With these characteristics in mind, facial treatments and services geared towards male clients would generally involve cleaning, exfoliating, and reducing build-up of oils and dirt on the skin.
For those looking for an introduction to Men’s Facials, My Skin Boutique has two personalised facial packages that are extremely effective (and relaxing!). The Gym Junkie Facial and The Men’s Maintenance Facial, that both strengthen and maintain healthy skin.
The Gym Junkie Facial
It’s like a workout for your skin! This treatment is designed for the man on the move, our Men’s Gym Junkie Facial helps create healthy and strong skin with the power of enzymes, oxygen and antioxidants.
The Gym Junkie Facial is perfect for the man on the move! This facial helps create healthy and strong skin with the power of enzymes, oxygen, and antioxidants. This package includes a Cocoa Enzyme Facial which is great for exfoliating, polishing and nourishing the skin, an Oxygen RX Treatment that targets the ruddy-look often associated with acne, rosacea, and telangiectasia which brightens the skin, and lastly a Green Tea Mask which is a clay-based mask designed to pull up impurities, remove keratin build up and detoxify the skin.
The Men’s Maintenance Facial
Just like our cars which need regular servicing, so does our skin. The Men’s Maintenance Facial is greatly effective for revitalising, refreshing, and maintaining healthy functioning skin for longer through effective exfoliation and powerful anti-ageing ingredients.
This facial package includes Dermaplaning which is a procedure that exfoliates and rids the skin of vellus hairs and any trapped dirt, oil and dead skin cells on the surface of the skin (Yes, you heard that right. Dermaplaning isn’t just for the ladies). For men with coarse beard hair, only the top half of the face is treated with the dermaplaning blade. Following this an Oxygen RX treatment is performed to target the ruddy-look often associated with acne, rosacea, and telangiectasia. This treatment stimulates the fibroblast cell for collagen and elastin and the end result is clear and luminous skin with a feeling of firmness. Lastly a Firming Peptide Enzyme Mask is applied to help detoxify the skin whilst targeting signs of ageing, dull, sagging and UV damaged skin.
