Men have obviously higher testosterone levels than women. That explains why men's skin produces more oil.
Oil can clog pores and can lead to blackheads (and whiteheads!). A good extraction and gentle but effective exfoliation is what men's skin needs in order to remove blackheads and impurities. Use of incorrect exfoliation and cleansing products at home can sometimes do more harm than good - a risk of removing vital skin lipids and scooping the unnecessary layers and exposing the skin to potential damage. The result - dry and sensitive skin with or without occasional breakouts as well as pigmentation for darker skin type. From experience, men often have a wrong impression of their own skin type. It is worth paying a visit or two to a cosmetologist (make sure it is a good one!) to make sure that you do the right things to the most presentable part of your body - your face! You may be pleasantly surprised to know that good clinics that offer facial treatments, have a range of facials for men - each of them designed towards individual skin requirements. The result is clean, healthy and younger looking skin.
Skin specialists at Body Silk Clinic point out that whether it is everyday or every two weeks, the continuous dragging of a razor across sensitive facial skin can cause irritation.
Razor burn, inflammation, and irritation from shaving over pimples are common consequences of shaving. A facial will deep cleanse bumps and soothe the irritated skin. The combination of exfoliation, essential oils, masks, and moisturisers for men that our practitioners apply will address side effects from regular shaving and make your skin healthier than ever.
Believe it or not, the smoother your skin, the better and more comfortable will be your shaving! Even if you are not worried about wrinkles, a bespoke facial would make an amazing difference. What is also impressive is visible results right after the treatment. Isn't it worth giving it a try?
