Caring for your skin and reducing the signs of aging has long been seen as something mostly women tend to worry about. Women have been held to a higher standard when it comes to a youthful appearance, but times are changing. Men are starting to see the benefits of caring for their skin and even venturing into cosmetic injections like Juvederm (a filler) and Botox, or as some like to call it, “Bro”tox.
It’s important that men take good care of their skin is because they tend to produce more oil. A higher level of testosterone is the cause. Because they will produce more oil and thus have more clogged pores which could lead to blackheads and then lead to pimples. An esthetician can thoroughly and properly extract dirt and oil from pores refreshing the skin and giving it a natural glow. They will also stimulate collagen production through pressure point massage. Men won’t usually conceal their blemishes or age spots with cosmetics like women so it’s even more imperative that they properly care for their skin.
Fillers and Botox are now trending among men, but really men have been doing it for years. It softens wrinkles around the forehead and eyes and can take off 5 to 10 years. Maintaining a younger and more attractive appearance has given men a more competitive edge in the job market and dating scene as well. Many men will go to the gym for hours working on their physical physique so why not take other measures to look and feel your best? With a procedure so quick you can easily do it on a lunch break.
It’s a no brainer that men and women want to look younger. I’m excited that men are finally able to embrace treatments and services that seemed only to be reserved for women. As a spa owner, I am happy to have so many male spa members who regularly take care of themselves. I encourage more men to change up their routine for the New Year and get a man’s facial or give cosmetic injectables a try!
