Men can benefit from facials, too

Though facials are a luxury most often associated with women, good skin is not exclusive to the fairer sex. Though their reasons for getting a facial often differ from women's, men can benefit from facials just as much as their female counterparts. The following are just a handful of the benefits a man can expect to enjoy after receiving a facial.

* Reduce shaving irritation: Perhaps the greatest reason for a man to get a facial is to relieve the irritation caused by shaving. Even the most technologically advanced razors cause some irritation, and that irritation can be mild, painful or anywhere in between. Rather than growing a beard to avoid the painful side effects of shaving, men can treat their skin to a facial that revitalizes their skin and helps offset some of the more painful side effects of taking a razor to their face.

* Improve appearance: One of the biggest benefits of receiving a facial is the procedure's effect on an individual's appearance. Men are more prone to clogged pores than women, but facials clean pores more deeply than store-bought scrubs and cleansers, helping skin appear more vibrant and healthy. That improved appearance can impact a man's self-esteem, which can benefit a man in both his personal and professional lives.

* Combat aging: Wrinkles are a natural side effect of aging, but some men find this particular part of the aging process more troublesome than others. Men whose wrinkles doubled seemingly overnight may be able to slow the wrinkling process by receiving a facial, which can help improve the elasticity of the skin and contribute to cellular regeneration that helps men avoid looking older than they really are.
