Even in a world that is slowly but surely broadening its mind and breaking down the barriers between what is considered masculine and feminine, there is still a general unease among men when it comes to grooming.
But guys, it’s time to leave all that apprehension at the door and take care of yourself!
Being kind to yourself with home treatments will boost your confidence and make you look great, and have some health benefits as well.
If you’re a man, you’ve heard of facials, but you might not even know what they do.
Essentially, a facial is skincare for, you guessed it, the face. They exfoliate the skin and remove impurities and dead skin.
Why should you, a man, get a facial, you ask? There are health benefits to your skin for one. There’s a stereotype that facials are feminine, but a man’s skin can be 25% thicker than a woman’s. It also has a higher collagen density, creating more sebum oil and causing breakouts. Plus, they can prevent crow’s feet and wrinkles, while helping to remove blackheads and promote the regeneration of new cells.
There are different types of facials you can try, such as a chemical peelwhich is a solution used on the face that removes dead skin cells and stimulates the growth of new cells which in turn improves the appearance of the skin.
There are three types of peels; superficial, medium and deep.
You can also make DIY masks. Some remedies may not be the best, but with a little research you can find out which ones are the safest to try. There are homemade face masks for all types of different conditions such as wrinkles, dark circles, chapped lips, and eczema.
It can be easy to go to a supermarket or beauty store and pick out the cheapest shampoo you can find, but it might not be doing your hair any favors.
For example, men with oily hair would benefit from a clarifying shampoo, while a coconut milk shampoo, for example, will help moisturize the dry part.
And what about those of you who are worried about hair loss, baldness and thinning hair? Well, you can use products with hair fibers that will help conceal thinning hair and act as hair thickeners – naturally boosting confidence and making your natural hair look thicker.
The global health pandemic has highlighted the need to take care of the health of our hands.
There may be an exasperated reaction from some of you when told to get a manicure before it is extremely beneficial for the health of the hands – not just the nails.
And what you need is a nude manicure, sometimes called a no-polish manicure or nude manicure, a procedure that builds the strength of natural nails and naturally improves their appearance.
In the absence of polish, a nude manicure focuses on cleaning, polishing, shaping and treating the nails.
Of course, if you wanted something a little more dynamic, then a little nail art may be to your liking. After all, it’s 2023, why should there be a taboo on men and their nails?
Think about it, is it different to show your creativity through piercings or tattoos? It’s a growing trend and you should embrace it.
