17 Apr Men’s Facials And Skincare
Men’s beauty products have traditionally been met with a bit of stigma and resistance, generally for being too “girly” of “not manly.” For some reason, it was considered more manly to be rough and unkept, perhaps that is because there is a certain amount of the population who believe that “being a man” involves the characteristics that less evolved human beings possessed. Men were supposed to hunt and kill, fight and defend those around them. Women on the other hand were supposed to care for children and be attractive to men. Because of the evolution of the species while keeping these kinds of ideals in place, we ended up with men feeling as though they were not exhibiting the characteristics of men if they took care of themselves, or if they attempted to make themselves physically attractive. Luckily, those days are gone.
Men today not only accept that there are methods of making themselves more attractive, but they embrace them. Many men now care about the way they look and the appearance they provide to the world, and being unkept and unclean is no longer considered masculine, instead it is considered slovenly and lazy. Basically, if you look like you have not bathed in days it is no longer a symbol of being a man, and instead it is now a symbol of being a bum. Even men who work in industries that involve sweat and physical labor are now abandoning the ideas that they should not clean up when at home or out somewhere. You may have to get beat up at work, but when you are outside of work you can go the extra mile to clean up. Not only will your wife and girlfriend appreciate it, you will also feel better about yourself. It is ok to go to the gym and to a hair salon to get your hair cut in the latest style. It is ok to buy nice clothes that actually fit you well. It is ok to use skin products that improve the way you look and the way your skin feels.
The ultimate expression of this new found ability to make yourself attractive is facials for men. This is not some specialized version of a facial that is designed to somehow capture the essence of a man while also scrubbing and exfoliating the skin. Instead, it is simply the shift in public perception of the facial itself, that it is not just for women. Everyone has skin, and a man’s skin is no different than a woman’s. A man will benefit from a facial in exactly the same ways that a woman will, with their skin coming out refreshed and rejuvenated. They will be relaxed and will have a youthful glow that comes with great skin. It will also reduce the signs of aging like leathery looking skin and wrinkles. If youa re a man and are concerned about your looks, perhaps it is time to book a men’s facial and experience what skincare is actually like.
