Men’s Skin Treatment
Skincare for Men: Do men really need professional skincare treatment?
Having good skin is not just the privilege of women. Men can have it too!
Men need and deserve to get professional skincare treatment as much as ladies do. Or perhaps, even more! Here’s why.
Men need professional skin treatments because it is difficult to treat male skin problems with only good skincare products. Normal skincare products are only able to maintain one’s skin condition and not treat the skin problem effectively. For example, normal cleansing that one practices at home with their normal facial cleanser can only cleanse the surface of one’s skin, only helping in the maintenance of one’s skin hygiene. However, this is not enough.
Male skin is structured differently from female skin with coarser and higher acidity levels. This means that male skin is more prone to clogged pores when dirt accumulates on the skin as well as skin damage. Secondly, male skin is also thicker at the top layer and it has larger pores, richer blood supply and more active sebaceous glands, which will lead to men having oiler and thus, dirtier skin.
With oilier skin, pores will get clogged more easily. When these clogged pores are not cleansed and cleared properly, the accumulation of “waste materials” at the pores will result in the formation of blackheads and whiteheads. When blackheads and whiteheads are not cleared, bacterial infection at these targeted areas can cause pimples to surface. If the condition is not treated in time, upon continuous and deeper bacterial infection, the pimple problem can start getting out of hand, as it spreads and develops further into acne.
As such, with a higher probability of male skin being more prone to acne and pimples, there is an increased need for professional treatment as lack of appropriate care can cause these blemishes to be infected and lead to pitted scars. The plain soap-and-water approach to skincare must give way to proper and regular treatments by experts, so skin problems can be kept at bay before they become even harder to treat.
