It’s a bird. It’s a plane. It’s Metroman!
Chances are your man isn’t as committed to skin care as you are. I’m guessing that his regimen involves a bar of Irish Spring in the shower, or at best, swiping your $100 serum and using half the bottle in one application. And I’ll bet that getting regular facials is about as common as braiding your daughter’s hair. In honor of Father’s Day, let’s examine how good skin care can make him look and feel like a brand new man. And let’s face it, some days wouldn’t YOU like a brand new man?
Histology of men’s skin: So we all know that men have more testosterone. But what does this mean to their skin? Well to start, a thicker epidermis, more oil, and larger pores. These factors, along with shaving and a lack of sunscreen, can lead to significant issues if left unchecked.
Do they even care? Most men brush off vanity like crumbs on the kitchen counter–in front of their women anyway. But when they’re on my table, they really do open up about crows feet, sunspots, blackheads, redness, and wrinkles. Who knew that they actually think about their facial flaws and genuinely want to fix them? They just won’t admit this to you.
How can you help him? Get him in for a facial. I’m sure you’ve had the frustrating experience of giving your man advice that gets completely dismissed until a professional tells him THE EXACT SAME THING. For some unexplainable reason, the power and potency of this phenomenon is even stronger during a scalp massage. Hmmm…? We’ll convince him that skin care is not just for metro guys named Thad carrying messenger bags, and send him home with a simple regimen that even he can follow.
