Facials, or the use of natural ingredients to help rejuvenate the skin, have been around for hundreds of years. Back in the 1500s and 1600s, women would go to great lengths to maintain a pale complexion, which was an indication of power and wealth.
In the hundreds of years that followed, the treatments got more advanced and scientific, leading to various inventions and treatments. The decades throughout the 1900s were marked by specific efforts.
The 1930s was the anti-freckle age, the 1940s introduced the anti-aging treatments, the 1950s saw the appearance of paraffin treatments and seaweed baths; and so on. Regardless of how the treatments have evolved, the goal remained the same: to maintain healthy and vibrant skin.
For men, however, this journey has been a little different. It’s true that men have been finding their way into services traditionally thought of as being for women for decades. Whether it’s with a stylist the salon or in with a manicurist, men have found the value of these services over the past several decades.
Now, the men’s facial is raising eyebrows.
More and more men are experiencing the importance of having regular facials, as well as facial procedures. Ask some dermatologists and they’ll report that almost half their clients are now men. Their message to clients: skincare matters.
And the good news for men is that there are plenty of options for you and you can benefit from these services, too.
What Exactly Is A Men’s Facial?
According to Men’s Health magazine, a men’s facial is “a treatment performed by a licensed professional designed to address the skin. They usually include cleansing, exfoliation, massage, extractions, and a mask.”
Not to worry, men’s facials have been around for decades, which means they are tailored to the specific needs of men. In general, they’re a lot like women’s facials, but formulated to address common issues that men face, like razor burn, ingrown hairs, and yes, even sensitivity.
But every guy is different, so some treatments target skin that has been damaged by sun or wind, some treat acne, and other services focus on aging skin. Or, you may need a deep pore cleansing, or even multiple treatments because men’s skin is typically rougher and oiler due to activities like spending time outdoors and in the sun. Plus, if we’re being honest, men in general can do a better job at taking care of their skin.
Whatever your concern or specific need, a facial may be exactly what you’re looking for.
Here’s What You Need To Know
We’ve established that more and more men are getting facials, and we’ve reviewed what men’s facials really are, so here’s what you should know before you book your appointment.
According to experts, you should identify what type of skin you have: sensitive skin, normal skin, dry skin, oily skin, or a combination of any of these. Everyone is different, but knowing where you stand is important to knowing what kind of facial you need.

The same Men’s Health story outlined 6 reasons to get a facial, and we couldn’t agree more, although we have to admit that the last reason is our favorite:
- Facials are a Power Wash for Your Face
- Facials Remove Blackheads Better Than a Pore Strip
- Facials Exfoliate Better (and Safer) Than At-Home Treatments
- Getting a Facial Is a Good Way to Learn About Your Skin
- Professionals Have Better Tools
- Facials Can be Relaxing AF
We might add that in addition to these very compelling reasons, you deserve it!
