When it comes to skincare routines, most men do the bare minimum. Aside from (hopefully) washing their face twice a day, men don't typically use any special products or go for routine facials like a lot of ladies do. However, Vicki Morav, skincare expert and celebrity aesthetician, thinks that everyone, men included, should be incorporating some variation of skincare into their daily routines.
"Men have skin, too! It's not a matter of vanity, but rather of health and wellness. Since the skin is our largest organ it must be taken care of regularly no matter what," Morav says. Here, she shares four go-to treatments that are geared towards helping men feel and look their very best.
- Deep pore cleansing: Ideal for men on-the-go who need a simple refresh. Starting with a deep pore cleansing treatment is the best way to help combat aging and health-related problems. There's nothing like a clean canvas that preps the skin for more invasive anti-aging treatments.
- Lymphatic drainage: For men who workout frequently, Morav suggests a 30-minute sauna session followed by a lymphatic drainage treatment that's mixed with special deep tissue hyper-volt techniques. These treatments help relieve all soreness caused by lactic acid buildup after a workout.
- Microneedling: Used to treat various scars, wrinkles, and large pores, this is the ideal skincare treatment for men with textured skin and serves as a great 'pick me up'.
- Radio Frequency: The Radio Frequency Lifting Treatment is a nonsurgical method of tightening skin, making it appear more toned and contoured. Great for men looking to get bathing-suit ready!
