“My skin looks dull, unhealthy or tired”
Many men are not aware of the benefits of using skin care products (also known as cosmeceuticals) that are developed specifically for use on the face. It is not uncommon for a male client to admit to using bar soap or shampoo to wash their face in the shower. These products over-dry facial skin, leading to dull, unhealthy and tired-looking skin.
A proper skin care regime is important to maintain skin’s health and vitality. A basic protocol, which is appropriate for most clients, would include a cleanser, followed by a moisturizer, and as a last step, a broad-spectrum sun protection. It is often beneficial to include an exfoliation step several times a week, particularly prior to shaving, depending on your skin’s age and condition. Cosmeceuticals help minimize irritation associated with shaving, and provide a more even, refreshed complexion.
As we age, many individuals require the addition of specialized products to their skin care routine in order to improve their skin’s condition. An advanced or active treatment to target specific skin needs can be very beneficial at addressing concerns such as redness, wrinkles, acne and hyperpigmentation. Products specific to the eye area can provide further protection and rejuvenation of this sensitive area of the face. At Medical Aesthetics of Muskoka, we place a priority in individualizing a skin care regime that addresses your needs, priorities and lifestyle.
