You must know that facial treatment for men is actually a necessity because:
- It is necessary for healthy and clear-looking skin.
- Facials can help treat many common skin complaints, including oily or excessively dry skin.
It is no news that when it comes to getting a facial, men are often hesitant. Perhaps it’s because they’ve for long believed the misconception that it is somewhat “unmanly” to treat their skin. Or maybe they fear not knowing what goes on during a facial treatment and are therefore nervous.
Here are a few things to expect during a facial treatment for men:
The first step in your facial treatment would involve the cleansing of the skin. The specialist start by massaging cleanser onto your skin to remove any traces of left over residue/dirt. After some time, they will wipe off the cleanser with a soft sponge/cloth.
The next step after cleansing would be to remove dead skin cells by using exfoliating cream.
This process is the next and is usually performed to clear any pores that are clogged. Extractions are usually performed by hand. In some instances, a special metal tool might be used to extract blackheads.
Generally, you can receive either a face massage (facial) or a full body massage.
After you’ve received a facial massage, your skincare expert will apply a face mask to the face. (these face masks are custom made to suit your skin type). You will then be asked to sit with the mask on for anywhere between 30 minutes to an hour.
You May Be Asked To Undress
Some of them might ask you to undress and might offer you a pair of flip-flops and a robe.
Your Treatment Will Depend On Your Skin Type
Treatment really depends on the type of skin you have. Everyone has different types of skin type – no 2 are alike. Aestheticians will be asking you questions about your skin, how you take care of it, etc. Once they understand the type of skin you have, and what you want your skin to look like in the long run, they will be able to recommend the best type of facial for you.
