In an industry saturated with female beauty standards, beauty products and businesses sometimes forget to cater to the men of the world. There are many companies with incredible skincare products that are perfectly suitable for use by all genders, yet marketing directs only women to their use. At Coco Med Spa we believe that the med spa is absolutely for men. We work hard to ensure that men feel welcome in our space and confident that they are receiving great care that is specialized for their needs. If you’re a man, stay tuned and share this with a friend who could use skincare tips for men as well!
Why should I practice skincare?
As a human with skin, basic maintenance is required, of course. However, having a skincare routine and getting skincare treatments is a part of self care on a larger scale as well. Humans thrive on ritual and taking a few moments out of each day to intentionally care for yourself and your skin can be beneficial to your mental and emotional health as well. Additionally, it’s great for your physical health to care for your skin as it is our largest organ and the first line of defense from outside organisms. Skincare for men can be as simple or complex as you like but its importance still stands. Skincare is an important factor in looking and feeling great as well as preventing the visible signs of aging.
What do I need?
While it is best to consult with a skincare professional for a personalized routine, there are a few essentials that every man should have. A great cleanser is a good start. Use it as instructed to remove impurities from your skin on a daily basis. Next up, you’ll need an exfoliant. It sounds fancier than it is, we promise. This is to be used only a few days a week (can be done in the shower) to gently remove dead skin cells from the surface of your face and encourage cell turnover and skin renewal. Lastly, you need a moisturizer and sunscreen. Depending on your skin type, this can be combined into one product. These three (or four) products are non negotiables in a basic skincare routine and will make a difference in your skin over the long term with consistent use.
How do I use it?
Consistency is key. Simplicity is key also. You don’t need a million products to have great feeling skin, you just need the right ones. It is important to follow the instructions and use the products as they were intended for the results to show and stick. Step your results by getting in spa treatments. Our team can provide more powerful treatments that make it easier for you to maintain your skin in between.
At the end of the day, everyone desires to feel great. There are many ways to accomplish and measure this but skincare is an easy and rewarding start. Our goal is to continually educate men and women alike on the benefits of skincare in the hopes that they too can look and feel amazing as often as possible. Contact us to set up a consultation today!
