We don’t need a special day to celebrate Men’s Grooming, but seeing as it is National Men’s Grooming Day we thought we would put together a little round up of some of our most popular skincare treatments for men.

Did you know that men’s skin is different to women’s? Testosterone stimulation means men’s skin is thicker and tougher, and it also tends to be oilier than women’s, often giving men longer-lasting acne. 

One of our favourite treatments to suit men’s skin is Envy’s head-to-toe treatment. The advanced 3 in 1 technology exfoliates, extracts and infuses the skin resulting in healthy and rejuvenated skin. The skin conditions that can be treated by Envy include hyperpigmentation, acne, blocked pores, dehydrated skin, skin laxity, wrinkles, fine lines and rosacea. 

If you want to create a more masculine look from your treatment, we recommend dermal fillers that can sculpt cheekbones and add definition to the jawline. They can also be used on the chin, tear troughs, marionette lines, nasolabial folds, smoker’s lines and nose. 

Having a good skincare routine can keep you looking fresh and youthful, and we have a great range of Obagi products that can be viewed on our website. We recommend Obagi Hydrate Moisturiser to reduce wrinkles and ease dry skin, and using a cleanser instead of soap to wash your face, as soap strips the skin of its natural oils and makes it drier. 

If you shave, we recommend doing so just after having a shower, as the warm water makes it easier for the razor to cut through and prevents red bumps; also use a moisturising, non-alcohol shaving cream for even better results.

We also have a range of men’s skincare tips on our social media, which can be found here.


Diamonds may or may not be a girl’s best friend. Blocked pores, dehydrated skin and hyperpigmentation definitely are not — and it’s with these three post-vacay complaints that I went to transform my visage in under half an hour with the Envy facial, which legit involves some sparkly rock action.

New in town and exclusively available in the Midlands at Dermoperfection and Metro Spa, the treatment simultaneously exfoliates, extracts and infuses using a combo of serums chosen depending on the condition of your skin. The exfoliation bit involved a diamond tip to help clear away the dry top layer of my winter-worn skin evenly, with a slightly-scary sounding pneumatic closed-looped vacuum pressure (that actually feels rather nice) to extract my numerous imperfections. Ever so satisfyingly, you can see all of the dirt and dead skin cells that come out. Apparently mine wasn’t “too bad at all”, despite my skincare regime of water, water, and oh yeah, moisturiser now and again.

This is a lunchbreak-friendly facial with no pre or post requirements — you can exercise straight after and your skin almost immediately glows rather than looking blotchy or red. But the very best feeling for me was when I woke up the next morning, face fully infused, with fresh, plump looking skin that’s still feeling smoother than ever.

It’s normally £129 for an Envy facial, but book in for your first treatment before Jan 31 and it’s half price, so £64.50. (KD)
