Why Do Men Need a Facial?

This is a repost of a previous blog about guys getting facials. It's become a thing, and I have lots of guys coming in these days. Since this is the last week of our 20% off a Men's Facial at Glow Skincare it's the perfect time to learn why a guy needs a facial.

 I love giving my guy clients facials, and they love getting them. What guy, whether he admits it or not, wouldn't like relaxing while getting their skin deep-cleaned, and getting a hand, arm, neck, and shoulder massage to go with it? Based on the number of men who are my regular clients, once they try a facial service, they love it! So, here's what happens during a man's facial, as well as the benefits.

We start with a short scalp massage followed by cleansing the face thoroughly and analyzing the skin. The cleanse includes using a Clarisonic cleaning brush for a deep clean and a scrub with alpha-hydroxy acids to remove dead skin cells and stimulate the skin for better skin health, and smoother, clearer, skin. Men like it because it helps clean blackheads and deep pores (many guys are prone to deep pores that trap oil, dirt, and dead skin) that are clogged. While the scrub is working the steam is softening the oil and blackheads and opening the pores for easy extractions. After the scrub and steam, I'll gently extract any remaining blackheads, clogged pores, or blemishes. Then comes the most relaxing part! After applying a cool, soothing, manly smelling mask to the face, he'll get a hand and arm massage, followed by a neck and shoulder massage. The mask smooths and nourishes the skin and once its job is done, I'll remove it with a warm towel, apply a serum that hydrates and cools the face, and top it off with sunscreen, eye cream and a lip treatment. All the products used are "guy friendly." They smell refreshing, not girly, and feel non-greasy. It's guaranteed that a guy will leaving feeling great.

Stay pretty,

Why Would a Guy Get a Facial?

June 21st is Father's Day, so I thought I'd write about why your Dad (or your kids' dad!) would love getting a gift card for a facial for his Father's Day present. I love giving my guy clients facials, and they love getting them. What guy, whether he admits it or not, wouldn't like relaxing while getting their skin deep-cleaned, and getting a hand, arm, neck, and shoulder massage to go with it? Based on the number of men who are my regular clients, once they try a facial service, they love it! So, here's what happens during a man's facial, as well as the benefits.

We start with a short scalp massage followed by cleansing the face thoroughly and analyzing the skin. The cleanse includes using a Clarisonic cleaning brush for a deep clean and a scrub with alpha-hydroxy acids to remove dead skin cells and stimulate the skin for better skin health, and smoother, clearer, skin. Men like it because it helps clean blackheads and deep pores (many guys are prone to deep pores that trap oil, dirt, and dead skin) that are clogged.

It's guaranteed that your Dad will leave feeling so happy that his smart kids got him a facial for Father's Day!

Glow Skincare, where I work, has a Father's Day special! Our Men's Skin Treatment is $20 off this month. It's a $70 value for $50. Looking forward to seeing your dad for a facial soon.
