Man up & take better care of your skin
Many men shy away at the idea of indulging in a facial. The experience can seem a bit too feminine focused. However, at Face Plus we liken the experience to a massage for your face or a workout for your skin. The purpose is to create a result, rather than just a relaxing time.
Men’s skin is naturally a bit thicker than women’s. Men subject their face to shaving routines, stubble and beard growth. Unlike women who are more conscious about their skincare and makeup regime, men wear little to no product on their face. Many men even admit to forgetting to apply sunscreen. They are therefore more likely to be subjected to the harsh rays of the sun and show signs of sun damage. Men are also less inclined to focus on their at home skincare products. Many men admit to using hand soap or body wash to clean their face. These harsh chemicals can cause an oil imbalance of your skin.
Men therefore are prone to the following issues: coarser skin, larger pores, breakouts and an increased chance of sun damage. This list alone warrants some one on one time with a Face Plus dermal therapist.
Although our entire treatment list at Face Plus is perfectly suited for men, a great entry level treatment that would benefit any man’s skin is our signature Enzyme Facial. The Face Plus Enzyme Facials are a safe and effective natural way to facilitate exfoliation, help overall biological processes in the skin that have slowed down due to age or sun damage and to inhibit free-radical damage. The Enzyme Facials accelerate biochemical reactions in a cell that would proceed minimally or not at all if the enzymes were not present.
The Key Ingredients in the Enzyme Facial include:
Spelt: A protein rich grain abundant in biomimetic leucine, phenylalanine, threonine, lysine and valine amino acids. Replicates NMF (Natural Moisturising Factor), Vitamin B6, zinc, magnesium and iron.
Kaolinite: A drawing mineral clay rich in aluminium silicates that absorb excess sebum production.
Wheat protein: Rich in serine, alanine, glycine, aspartic acid, threonine, leucine, lysine, valine, arginine, histadine, phenylalanine, glutamic acid and proline found in NMF.
Lactose: A biomimetic disaccharide found naturally in glycosaminoglycans.
The exfoliating enzymes are activated by steam and only target dead keratinised protein.
For men this facial offers an incredible deep pore cleanse. Men naturally produce more oil in their skin than women as they have higher testosterone levels. When male pores aren’t cleaned properly, the oil will clog the pores and can lead to the formation of blackheads and pimples. During your enzyme facial, your Face Plus dermal therapist will assess the state of your skin and will perform extractions after steaming your face, if necessary. An extraction is a very precise removal of oil and dirt that’s clogging any open pores.
The best part about the signature Enzyme Facial, is that it is appropriate for all skin types. If you suffer from dry and flaky skin, the facial will help restore moisture and leave your skin feeling hydrated. If you suffer congestion or an oily T Zone, the facial will help to decrease your shine, shrink your pores and exfoliate your skin.
After your Signature Enzyme Facial you can expect a no downtime result to great, glowing skin. Many men comment on how much smoother their shave feels post facial. Constant shaving can cause irritations to the skin in the form of inflammation and micro wounds. A facial with help to deep clean the area and soothe the irritated skin resulting in a smoother and less painful shave.
Whether you have an occasion coming up or just notice your skin feeling a bit congested, a Face Plus Enzyme facial is a core treatment to ensure your skin is operating at its peak performance level.
