Facials may seem to be something only for the fairer sex. It may seem to be very fussy for a manly skin. The soothing music, the spa slippers, and the cucumber water may not appeal that much to you. But still, surprisingly, facials have now become very popular with men these days. This is because of the number of benefits that it offers.
The skin problem because of the shaving cream that you use or because of exposure to the sun can damage your skin. The spa can clean it off but it will not be able to cure the damage done inside of the skin. Men have coarse skin and their skin is also more prone to damage from the sun. This is why more than women men should get their facials done regularly.
Men’s skin produces more oil
The level of testosterone in men is higher than that of women. This is the reason why a man’s skin will produce more oil. When this is not cleaned properly the oil will tend to clog the pores and this will instead lead to blackheads. The blackhead then causes pimples. The extractions done during facials help to remove the dirt and the oil from the pores. If you, however, do this at home, then your skin could get damaged seriously.

Facials are for all skin types
Not all men have an oily skin though. However, facials are still effective for men because the professionals know how to study your skin type and will then be able to suggest a facial as per the skin type. A dry skin will need something that leaves it moisturized and hydrated. An oily skin would need a facial that can decrease the shine, exfoliate the skin and shrink the pores.
