skin care and facials for men

Skin care is universal – everyone, regardless of gender, benefits from actively caring for their skin. Despite this, many men are reluctant to engage in facials, skin care training – even basic steps like cleansing or moisturizing!

Factors contributing to this include common themes of unfamiliarity, masculinity, misconceptions and even gender bias by the advertising industry.

We’re helping to demystify and destigmatize skin care routines for all. Learn how you men can better care for your skin at home and with professional skin care training.

are facials good for men?

Yes. A high-quality facial is a non-invasive way to improve the health and appearance of your skin. At skoah facial shops, we use our proprietary product line to nourish your skin and help you build a daily skin care routine for home to complement your in-shop skin care training.

the benefits of skin care training for men

We recommend monthly skin care training sessions, complemented by an at-home skin care regimen.

That’s because just as lifting weights at the gym strengthens your muscles, skin care training makes your skin look and feel its best. The benefits of skin care training are universal.

Facials won’t just make you look good; you’ll feel good too. After a facial, or skin care training, our guests report feeling fresh and clean, that their pores are unclogged and that their skin feels tight (in a good way). Over time, clients reported experiencing fewer breakouts and flare-ups.

what is the best facial for men?

The best facial for anyone is one tailored to your skin type – common skin types are dry, oily, combination and sensitive. The first step in designing a skin care training program is identifying your skin type and choosing products and facials best suited for it.

For example, combination skin is commonly believed to be the most common skin type. Men (and women) with combination skin have dry cheeks and an oily t-zone. (Imagine a capital “T” in the middle of your face with the trunk of the letter vertical on the nose.) Men (and women) with combination skin often choose the highly customizable facialiscious™ facial, skoah peel™ facial or extract™ add-on facial enhancement.

building a skin care routine for men – the basics

Like a regimen for women, a skin care routine for men should start with cleansing, toning and moisturizing. Think of these as the foundation. These steps can be built upon to address specific skin care issues – like dryness, for example, or blemishes.

If you think of cleansing, toning and moisturizing as your foundation, you can think of SPF or sunscreen as your siding. The American Academy of Dermatology recommends the daily use of a broad-spectrum sunscreen that is water-resistant and is of SPF 30 or higher.

These are just the basics. Building a more advanced routine with specialized products that work for you will take time. Unlike makeup, skin care products work at a cellular level to improve the texture and appearance of the skin.

The best skin care products for men are those that match the needs of your skin type. Working with your local skoah facial shop® skin care trainer, you can build a skin care routine customized to your skin type, concerns and goals.

Not sure about your skin type? Unsure which facial is right for you? Don’t stress – your skoah facial shop skin care trainer will help you to understand your skin and recommend the right facials and at-home skin care products for your routine.

how often should a man get a facial?

We recommend that all skoah facial shop customers schedule facials, or skin care training sessions, monthly.

do I need to shave my beard for a facial?

No. There’s no need to shave your beard, mustache or sideburns to enjoy the benefits of a facial. Your skin care trainer will focus on the hair-free areas of your face during your skin training session.

facials and skin care training are for everyone

At skoah facial shops, healthy, glowy, age-defying skin is our mission. We don’t offer gender-specific facials because we know the skin care challenges we face aren’t gender-specific. Both skin concerns and high-quality skin care are universal. That’s why men have been missing out!

No matter your gender, age or skin type, we have a facial that’s perfect for you. Ready to feel the skoah difference? Contact the skoah facial shop nearest you to schedule your skin care training.
