Healthy skin is sexy skin--whether you're a man or woman. Taking the right steps towards age prevention and clear, confident skin can be easy when you have the right skin care coach (aka. your aesthetician).
MEN'S SKIN + AGING
Aging is a progressive process that doesn't happen overnight--although it may seem that way for women. A man's transition time from virility to andropause can start as early as his 40's, and he can experience significant changes over a period as long as 30 years! Androgens affect the sebaceous glands, hair growth, wound healing, and overall epidermal health and barrier function.
Sun Damage Concerns
Lines and Wrinkles
Dryness or Flakes
Men may suffer from an occasional breakout, but do not generally experience hormonal acne like adult women or teens. However, certain prescriptions have been known to cause acne in men.
BEARD / MUSTACHE SKIN CARE
Contrary to what you might think, skin with facial hair requires more effort to maintain than a clean-shaven face. Men who aren't shaving aren't exfoliating. Good cleansing and exfoliation are important to keeping the skin under the beard clean and healthy. This practice also helps prevent cellular buildup or facial dandruff.
Enlarged pores or an “orange peel” like look to the skin on the face is a common concern as we’re faced with intrinsic aging and chronic sun damage. Your pore size is determined by genetics and can’t be changed, however, there are steps we can take to minimize the look of the pores and improve the overall look of our face.
Dry skin, dandruff, and flaking are common issues with a beard. Thick, coarse hair can be difficult to clean and moisturize, but with the right combination of skin care products all of these woes can be prevented.
