Men's Facial for Dry & Sensitive Skin — What to Expect


Roughly 25% of men in Singapore have either dry or sensitive skin, both of which requires extensive men skincare practices to keep it in good health. This statistic accurately explains why the demand for men’s facial treatments saw an increase in the last couple of years, as men with dry, sensitive skin are actively looking for solutions to maintain good-looking, healthy skin.

Developing good skincare habits for men

With more men open to seeking proper facial treatments to manage a variety of skin concerns, one of the most addressed issues originate from dry skin, which if left unattended, can lead to worse skin conditions.

A common tactic to combat dry, itchy or sensitive skin is to first address the skin’s pH levels and reinforce its natural moisture barrier. This can be accomplished through dedicated skincare routines for men.

This can keep skin irritation and related conditions at bay, thus enhancing your confidence at work or play.

Most skincare products and treatments, including men’s facial treatments, are specially designed to meet your skin’s expectations and needs based on your skin type. Accurately identifying your needs is of utmost importance when it comes to choosing the adequate products and treatments, as the specific needs of your skin are largely determined by your actual skin type.

How do I know if I have dry or sensitive skin type?

how to identify dry sensitive skinDry skin can be identified through its dull complexion and/or rough texture, decreased elasticity and a proneness to irritation and itchiness. It is also more vulnerable to cracking and inflammation, as the natural moisture barrier is very thin and is unable to provide the skin ample protection against external stressors.

The sensitive skin type is easily recognizable by its vulnerability to redness, itching, acne, or temporary sensations of dryness. Oftentimes these symptoms have specific triggers, such as scratching or certain ingredients, which are best to be identified early and avoided.

Caring for sensitive skin may seem quite the task, but with proper maintenance and expert skincare advice, you can enjoy flawless, radiant skin for months or years to come.
