At AIYANA, we love to treat our men, too. Signs of age in men are common and usually consist of scowl lines, lines around the eyes, or crows feet, enlarged pores, jowls, and an increase in oily skin. But, what about skincare, tone and texture? A lot of individuals, not just men, neglect that part of their health and when the 40s come along, it’s hard to catch up. Here are the details, just for men, to help with their anti-aging regimen and improve their skins health.
When it comes to cleansing your skin, a bar of soap might suffice for some men. It’s convenient, available and what you might be accustomed to. But, its not the best for your skin. I love what Dr. Colbert says about this topic. “You wouldn’t wash your favorite cashmere sweater in Tide detergent, would you?” he asks. “Think of your skin as a fabric—it’ll age like cashmere or a pair of jeans. It gets beaten up, threads get thin, and you get holes in the knees. It’s a living fabric.”
Cleanser is the first step to creating an effective anti-aging regimen. Rinsing your face with warm water, then lathering up the cleanser in your hands and then rubbing it on your face to cleanse the area. Rinse with warm water. Use a hand towel to dry. Acne prone skin would be better off dried with paper towels due to the bacteria that is present on hand towels when only washed every 1-2 weeks. Our favorite cleanser is ALASTIN Gentle Cleanser ($45).
Our love for serums runs deep and that may have something to do with iS CLINICALs revolutionary serums. When a serum for everyone that is tailored for your skincare needs. Every client at AIYANA is on a serum and it is something we feel passionate about. Here are a few of our favorites.
Hydra-Cool Serum— with its ability to act as a moisturizer, in serum form, this one is for all dry skin types. It has a cooling sensation when applied and it leaves out the greasy moisturizer feel.
Super Serum Advance+— When it comes to skincare, having a growth factor in your regimen is paramount. This serum not only brings a growth factor, but also has Vitamin C to help brighten the skin. Lastly, it is infused with botanicals and antioxidants to protect the skin from outside elements. Win-Win-Win.
Pro-Heal Serum— Blemish prone or have areas of dry/red patches on your skin? This serum is for you. Plus it helps with healing any skin concerns, such as sunburns and rosacea. A great serum to have in your back pocket.
Active Serum-– This is iS CLINICALs most loved product and serum, ranked #2 serum in the world. This serum is one that can be used as a spot treatment or an all over facial serum, with anti-aging properties to help with fine lines, wrinkles, blemishes, and dry skin. Plus, it feels like a little facial in a bottle. Our favorite.
Our must-have anti-aging cream is ALASTIN Restorative Skin Complex, with its Tri-Hex Technology that is formulated to go into the cells of the skin and clean out the old collagen and elastin. After that process is complete, it this targets the cells to product more collagen and elastin. If there is 1 anti-aging product that is a must-have for our clients this is IT. You will notice improvement in the texture and tone of your skin within 2 weeks. It’s that incredible.
When it comes to fine lines and wrinkles, non-invasive treatment at the spa are going to give you the quickest results, almost immediate. Don’t be afraid of getting a little Botox to reverse that permanent scowl line that you’ve been noticing more and more lately. Botox is a great treatment that will take care of those pesky lines and after a few treatments, they will disappear forever.
What seems to be most concerning for men is the fear of anyone knowing that they actually have gotten Botox treatments. No one will know, unless you want to tell them. At AIYANA, we firmly believe in enhancing your natural contours, not changing your face. Plus, Botox is for softening lines, NOT adding volume. There will not be any distortion of your face, and our goal is to keep the masculine features you already possess. Plus, keeping movement in your face is the most natural way to approach Botox in men and that is always our goal.
Other treatments to consider are facials, chemical peels, microneedling and even filler. But, let’s take it one step at a time.
