    For men who think you can just get away with face wash, think again. Facials may not be the ‘manliest’ thing out there, but there’s numerous benefits to getting a facial.

    What does a facial do?

    In order to keep your complexion clear, deep cleansing and exfoliation needs to be done to remove oil, dirt and impurities. Any lingering pimples and blackheads will be safely extracted for you as well, so it’s time to kiss those zits goodbye. With the current mascne situation, there’s no better time than now to get one! Ultimately, you’ll come out with fresher, newer skin.

    Why should men get facials?

    You may think that getting a facial isn’t quite ‘manly’, but there’s tons of reasons why men should incorporate facials as part of their skincare routines. Here are just some reasons why:

    • Men have oilier skin. Men have more active sebaceous glands! As a result, male skin tends to be on the oilier side as compared to women’s. What this means is that it is also more prone to acne and clogged pores. A facial will help to purify pores and cleanse impurities.
    • You’ll get a smoother shave. The continuous motion of dragging your razor across your skin is bound to cause damage to your skin, be it through razor burn or irritation. A facial will attend to your angry skin and calm it down, resulting in a smoother shave the next time around.
    • Reduce ingrown hairs. Not only does shaving damage the skin, it also results in ingrown hairs. Exfoliating and opening up the pores during facials will help reduce the likelihood of ingrown hairs forming!
