Gentlemen, do you know your skin type? Men’s skin varies in many ways from women’s skin and deserves its own special attention. Men’s skin tends to be thicker and oilier than women’s skin, but still not every man is the same.

Get to know your skin. A clinical aesthetician at deme will determine your individual skin type and what regimen is best for you. All of deme’s clinical skin care services can be customized to treat a man’s skin.

Shaving and Facial Hair

Shaving can be irritating to the skin, but there are many solutions to keeping your skin soft and nick-free. Firstly, it is best to shave immediately after showering since the skin is moist and facial hair is wet and flexible. Shaving creams with aloe can also help soften the skin and hairs, especially when lathered up and left on the face for a minute prior to shaving. Creams with glycolic acid or salicylic acid help to exfoliate and unclog pores, preventing ingrown hairs.

After shaving, apply an aftershave lotion to soothe the facial skin and follow up with a moisturizer suited for your skin type.  If shaving is not enough, hair laser removal can now target smaller areas on the face. The Soprano ICE laser at deme now comes with smaller heads to reach inside areas such as ears and nostrils to remove unwanted hair.

To determine your skin type, schedule a consultation with one of deme’s clinical aestheticians by calling our Philadelphia office at 215.561.3363 or our Wayne office at 610.688.3363.
