Read moreA man’s face takes a beating on a regular basis. From the harsh elements of the outdoors, to the effects of shaving, men do more damage to their skin than women, and spend less time caring for it. Some men may feel that skin care is more of a feminine affair or something that they don’t have time for. However, with a little extra effort they might be surprised at how easy it is to fit into their daily routine. Also, as the demand for men’s skin care products has increased in recent years, the supply available has increased as well, making it easier for men to choose a product line that is right for them. It is important that men begin to take a genuine interest in the health of their skin in order to protect and preserve it for the years to come. Booking a Men’s Express Facial at Ste. Anne’s Spa is a great way for every man to start learning the necessary steps needed to care for their skin. The Men’s Express Facial starts with a skin analysis performed by one of our skilled Estheticians. This skin analysis helps the guest to gain insight into the proper skin protocol needed to care for their skin. This is also a great time for any questions or concerns related to their skin care regime. Once the initial skin analysis is completed, the therapist will begin by cleansing the skin in order to remove any dirt, debris, or oil. Next, the Esthetician will use a toner to remove any leftover cleanser and to restore the pH balance of the guest’s skin. A liquid exfoliant is then used to dissolve the ‘glue’ that holds the dead skin cells together. The process of exfoliating helps remove the old surface layer of skin cells and allows the fresh, new cells to rise to the surface, creating a healthier, more radiant complexion! Next, a soothing facial massage is performed, to loosen up the sore muscles of the face and help the guest to relax. One of three masks is then applied to the face, depending on the guest's skin care needs. While the mask is on, the guest will be treated to their choice of either a hand and arm massage or a foot and leg massage. After the Esthetician removes the mask with a warmed towel, a toner will again be applied, followed by Aveda’s Men’s Shave Balm. Lastly, a moisturizer will be put onto the skin to ensure proper hydration. This treatment ends with the application of Aveda’s Lip Saver with SPF 15 to protect his lips from the harmful UVA and UVB rays of the sun. Our guests should emerge from this 45 minute treatment feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and hopefully with enough knowledge of their own skin to continue caring for it at home.
