It seems that beauty is no longer the preserve of the girls. Instead more and more men are starting to take steps to care for their looks. In fact, according to a new survey by JWT more then half of men are using skincare products like moisturiser and serum. The State of Men report also found that nearly half of men are getting waxes while 32 per cent admit to getting facials. So why should the girls get all the best treatments? Here is Shumaila’s guide to some top male beauty treatments that the boys can get too.
Botox is a great treatment if you want to look and feel younger and women are no longer the only ones getting the treatment. With a competitive job market and a lot of men back on the dating scene after a divorce or relationship breakup, they want to look their best and Botox is one answer to that. The non-invasive treatment can help smooth out fine lines and wrinkles and what’s more because it is non-surgical there is no recovery period.
Pedicures are often associated with coloured nail polish and are as such considered quite feminine but they are a great way of keeping your feet in tip top condition and you don’t have to get a colour on them. Instead you can just use it as a way of ensuring your feet look good.
According to the JWT survey nearly half of men admit to getting facials and why not? Unlike women most men don’t have makeup to hide behind so their skin has to look great. A facial can help clear your skin, deal with any problem areas and if you have particularly dry skin it is good for dealing with that tight uncomfortable feeling you sometimes get. A good facial will mean that your skin looks and feels its best and that has got to be a bonus.
OK we are not talking waxing everything off here – unless you want to of course. However, waxing is a great way of dealing with unwanted hair so if you have a bit of extra back hair or you want to trim your chest hair a bit of waxing can be a good solution. As any woman can tell you it’s long lasting, so you don’t have to worry about shaving every day and lets face it you probably do enough of that already.
Modern life can sometimes get a little bit stressful so a massage is the perfect way to relax and unwind and again it’s not just the preserve of the girls. With increasingly stressful jobs more and more men are looking to relax and unwind and do so with things like a massage. You could leave the salon feeling calmer and less stressed so it is well worth doing.
