You might think that having a facial is something that should be left to your wife or girlfriend and you might think it is a bit too over the top for your manly ways.

The whole spa environment might make you feel a little uncomfortable and the soothing music might creep you out but giving your skin a professional treatment can really make the difference.

This is because they know what they are doing and they can certainly do it better than you can.

Your skin can become damaged from shaving and the sun can cause unseen damage, all of which cannot be fixed with many of your regular products.

The damage you can see on the surface might slowly fade but what lies beneath should concern you.

In fact, you might need to have a facial more than your better half does.

So, read on to find out why you need to give your skin the care it deserves.

Get rid of that grease

Men have higher testosterone levels than women and that is why male skin produces more oil.

If the skin is not cleaned correctly then the pores will become clogged and will lead to blackheads and spots.

Attempting to clear the pores yourself at home can lead to further damage, however, opt to have a facial and you will see the problem disappear, giving you clean and clear skin.

However, producing more oil does not necessarily mean you will have skin that is oily.

Even if you have skin that is not very greasy, choosing to have a facial will give you access to someone who knows your skin type and how to care for it.

If you have dry skin then the treatment will need to hydrate and moisturize but if the skin is oily then it will need to reduce the shine and shrink the pores while exfoliating the skin.

Ease that razor burn

Regardless of how much or how little you shave, moving a razor across the skin will cause the skin to become irritated.

Shaving can cause razor burn, inflammation and irritation from shaving over pimples and so, a facial will help to deal with these problems.

Choosing to have a facial will clean deep beneath the skin and ease irritated skin while the mix of essential oils, masks, exfoliation and moisturizers will leave your skin looking radiant and feeling super smooth. If you have smoother skin, then you shave will become easier as the razor will glide over the skin.

A facial teaches you a lot

Opting to have a facial will mean that better, more effective products will be used on your skin – products that are better than you can purchase over the counter.

They will also show you how to apply products using techniques that will enhance your skin.

The great thing about the whole experience is that it will leave you relaxed and will provide you with the ability to ask questions.

You could ask them about the products they are using, why they are using them and what order they should be used in.

This will provide you with an insight that will enable you to put a proper grooming regime in place at home.
