Facial cleansing for men: indications and contraindications, peculiarities of the procedure

In today’s world, care for the men’s look is still something unusual. Often, all self-care procedures in the arsenal of men are limited to a regular visit to the hairdresser and shaving. Only the most self-aware men have at least the basics products to cleanse and moisturize their skin.

However, this approach to self-care is not the right one and can lead to various skin problems. Even for men who do not have serious problems (such as acne or deep wrinkles) daily care is also necessary. And if you add a regular facial cleansing at your cosmetologist, your skin will quickly regain a healthy glow and freshness.

Why men should have a facial

Men’s skin is thicker and much more oily than women’s skin. In addition, men are exposed to daily environmental influences, more often suffer from an unhealthy lifestyle and bad habits. All this noticeably affects the condition of men’s skin.

However, instead of choosing procedures and care products, men prefer to ignore the topic of their own appearance. This irresponsible attitude is most clearly seen when it comes to protecting their skin from the sun: men rarely use a sunscreen even on the harshest of summer days.
