Facial for Men
A facial is not a mamby pamby pamper session just for girls. A facial is a professional treatment with lots of good science behind it and men benefit from having one too.
It’s almost the same as the Luxury Facial, except using products and massage techniques designed to deal with problems men may have around shaving e.g. dry, irritated skin, nicks, cuts and ingrown hairs.
Briefly, dead skin is removed from the surface, the pores are given a deep cleanse to get rid of any gunk in them and the skin warmed, massaged and nourished. The results can be dramatic and relaxation is an added bonus.
A piece of thread is twisted to form a coil; this is then used to pick out single hairs at the root. Originated in India, it is a preferred hair removal technique for a number of reasons:
- Unlike tweezing or plucking, eyebrow threading removes one clean line of hair all at once and gives the eyebrows a more defined shape.
- It can be used to raise the arch of the eyebrow, or add shape and definition to the brow.
- Because it removes hair by the follicle, results last a good few weeks.
- Eyebrow threading also will not harm the skin like wax and the skin should not be red or irritated for too long after the eyebrow threading session.
Oils are blended and gently massaged into the skin to treats mind and body together. Aromatherapy is notably beneficial for the treatment of stress related disorders; the scent of the essential oils has a powerful effect on the emotions while the chemistry of the oils balances the body systems. As a type of preventative medicine, it can help ward off infectious illness, promote general health and well being and prevent long term problems from occurring.
Some of the conditions aromatherapy is used for include:
- anxiety, stress or insomnia
- muscular aches and pains
- digestive problems
- menstrual or menopausal problems
