Do Guys Need A Skin Care Routine?

the answer is yes. It’s especially important for men to cleanse, exfoliate, moisturize, and use SPF protection. Cleansing and exfoliating are important steps in a typical men’s skincare routine because it regulates oil. This can prevent clogged pores and acne.

Why Men’s Skincare is Important

First, let’s discuss why men’s skin is different from women’s skin. It comes down to three main factors:

1. Men’s skin is thicker. Researchers say that men’s skin is up to 25% thicker than women’s skin. Since the Stratum Corneum (a.k.a. the skin barrier) is thicker, men’s skin appears firmer and tighter than women’s skin.

2. Men’s skin has a higher collagen density. We all know the importance of collagen, which is why men are lucky to have so much of it. The higher collagen density in men’s skin set them up for delayed intrinsic aging.

3. Men’s skin is oilier. Some people say that oilier skin ages better than dry skin. While this is debatable, the fact that men’s skin is oilier than women’s skin is not. Men have larger pores and more active sebaceous glands than women. This makes them more prone to breakouts yet less prone to dehydrated skin.

Knowing the biological differences between men’s and women’s skin makes it clear why their skincare routines should target different skin issues.

Skin Care 101. Cleansing

Building a skincare routine from ground zero takes only a few simple steps, and you’d be surprised by how much of a difference you’ll see after just a few weeks of following them. If You’ve never washed your face with anything other than hand soap, it’s time to get a proper CLEANSER. When we think of clean skin, we’re conditioned to expect a dry, squeaky-clean feeling, but that’s actually a sign that you’ve over-cleansed and that is a bad thing. It means your skin’s protective barrier is disrupted and you’ve stripped away good oils that keep it moisturized. Instead, use a specific facial cleanser that’s designed for your skin type. If you have dry skin, look for a cleanser with moisturizing ingredients and if you have oily skin, use a gel cleanser with oil-controlling ingredients like salicylic acid. Use your cleanser morning and night for the best results.

Protect Your Skin


The biggest reason why guys don’t wear moisturizer is that they don’t like how it feels on their faces. Who likes to feel like you have glop all over your mug all day? But using a proper moisturizer you can tolerate will keep your skin from feeling dry, and at the most, help it maintain moisture that will keep it looking good for years to come. Ask us to find the best moisturizer that is suitable for you.


This step is most important: no matter your skin tone, you need to be wearing sunscreen every day. The UV rays from the sun, which we all encounter every day unless we are shut-ins or vampires, not only cause skin cancer but are also the biggest factor in our skin problems, including aging, pigmentation, wrinkles and inflammation. Daily sunscreen is the most effective anti-aging product we have. But most guys don’t wear it for the same reason as a moisturizer (“I don’t like how it feels”). Ask us about ‘Vivier Sunscreen Sheer’ which has a very lightweight lotion, you can even skip your moisturizers.

The Importance of Men’s Laser Hair Removal

Most men don’t necessarily want it all removed, but increasingly they do want it thinned out, on their back and chest. Men in general, have more hair in more places than women and shaving in all these areas can be quite difficult. Add the fact that clean, hairless skin is the trend these days, laser hair removal for men is one of the most popular treatments at Trinity Medispa.

Benefits of Men’s Laser Hair Removal

Why Is the Average Guy Getting Laser Hair Removal?

1. Excessive Body Hair/Aesthetics

Laser hair removal is appealing for men who are uncomfortable with excess hair on their back, chest, stomach, or all over. And let’s clear up a misconception: Laser hair removal doesn’t have to leave you looking like a hairless fitness model (unless you want it to).

2. Hygiene 

Another misconception: Having a lot of body hair doesn’t mean you’re less hygienic. It’s just that some guys find manscaping helps them relieve irritation. Some might do it to reduce business and any itchiness that can be intensified by hair in the summer months. Some guys just have really hairy butts, too. And yes, laser hair removal is plenty common in men. 

3. Easier Facial Grooming and Ingrown Hairs

A lot of guys want to have less hair to make shaving easier, especially if they get ingrown hairs on their neck. And Laser Hair Removal is the only way to effectively treat a condition called PFD, Pseudofolliculitis barbae (a.k.a razor bumps) and ingrown hairs as well. Clusters of inflamed, red, or dark bumps will appear around hair follicles from shaving. Essentially, they’re ingrown hairs that grow in all sorts of directions and can leave scars. Laser hair removal is also beneficial in patients with recurrent folliculitis—inflamed hair follicles that can appear as small, white-headed pimples.
