An overview of facials for men
Facials can help men who are concerned about their overall health and the long-term anti-aging benefits of preserving clear and clean skin.
Putting your skincare in the hands of a skilled medical professional, regardless of age or skin type, is not only the new norm for men’s grooming but also a powerful relaxing method for guys. Stress reduction may also result in healthier and younger-looking skin. Male facials were created to address the following skin-care issues that all men tend to face:

- Flaky skin.
- Ingrown hairs.
To get toned and fresh-looking skin, most male facials will combine a detoxifying and purifying deep cleanse with a soothing massage. Our skin experts have compiled some useful information to assist you on your facial journey; continue reading to learn more about the benefits of facials for men.
Why should men opt for a facial?
Men have a higher oil output. Their testosterone levels are usually higher than women’s, which is why they tend to generate more oil. Also, oil clogs pores which can contribute towards blackheads developing, which could, in turn, lead to pimples if not washed properly. During the facial, the medical professional will typically perform extractions, which involve the removal of dirt and oil that causes the pores to get clogged.
The constant scraping of a razor across your sensitive facial skin, whether every day or every two weeks, may cause some form of irritation to your skin. To help deep clean bumps and soothe irritated skin, a good facial is recommended. During the treatment, a mixture of exfoliation, essential oils, masks, and moisturizers are used to tackle the side effects of shaving and leave the individual’s skin feeling extremely smooth.
What are the benefits?
Some of the most common benefits include:
- It tightens the skin.

- It can assist with de-stressing.

How long is the treatment?
Based on the type of facial you opt for, the treatment will last anywhere from 30 minutes to a couple of hours.
Prior to the facial, bear the following in mind
Make sure you don’t shave right before your appointment. Shaving can leave the skin tender, sore, and particularly sensitive to products, so shaving the night before is a much safer and better choice.
What are the steps?
Male facials usually follow a seven-step process, which includes:
- A face mask for anti-aging.
- A massage that is both calming and refreshing.
It all starts with a thorough wash and exfoliation; removing those stubborn blackheads can be painful, but it’s well worth the effort. Then the dirt and debris from the surface of your skin will be removed with the help of oils that have unique benefits such as calming, healing, and nourishing traits. You’ll leave with an instant healthy glow that should last between 48 to 72 hours, as well as long-term benefits if you stick to the routine.
