Women openly recognise self-care and wellness as substantial forms of therapy in themselves. Self-care is one of the rare spaces where women have always dominated the culture. But the archaic rules about men’s skincare, wellness, and grooming are completely the opposite. It goes against what society tells us is masculine.
Modern masculinity is so fragile because society tells men that they should be strong and stable providers. So when it comes to wellness, men don’t want to take care of themselves in a fluffy way because it doesn’t fit into their ideals of masculinity.
The self-care revolution is finally coming to men
The past couple of years have shown the start of a huge cultural shift around what’s “acceptable” for men, while we´re still far from destigmatising the different types of self-care for men. Breaking down those barriers, even if they seem trivial in the larger scope of things, has the power to help men break free of social limitations.
And the market’s there.
For years now, brands have seen the market value in changing how they approach personal grooming and well-being for men.
Yes, but I think some products can certainly be more gender oriented. There are lots of different elements to take into consideration when it comes down to skincare, for example men have more testosterone hormone in their body and that can make skin thicker. But I can definitely see the industry moving towards genderless skin care products. At the end of the day it is what works best for you, whether the products are meant to be used by men or women.
Absolutely. Everyone should look after their skin to have the best version of themselves. There is nothing to be ashamed about trying to look and feel better.
I absolutely think men are more susceptible to skin aging and therefore should really take skin care seriously. I think men tend to live life a bit to the extreme compared to women... We drink more, we smoke more etc ... There is a reason why men live shorter lives than women. We tend to have less self-conciousness when it comes to health.
Confidence comes from within ourselves. You have to understand why you do not feel confident and what it is that you need to change in your life in order to shift that. Most of the time it can be a combination of things. Products that make you look brighter and healthier can absolutely help you feel better, therefore look AND FEEL more confident. It will help you trigger that feeling within you.
Yes, I have noticed myself, living in London, that pollution plays a big role. I really need to spend time to take care of my skin more than I would if I lived somewhere more remote. All these elements can deteriorate the skin and speed the aging process up. It is important to understand what is the real effect they can have on your skin and start finding solution to slow that process down.
Just as we blush at embarrassing situations and get goose bumps when we get excited, in the same way the emotional and psychic factor greatly affects the skin. Today we can find dermatologists with training in psychiatry and psychology. In addition to dealing with their patients’ skin problems, they practice talk therapies, even prescribing anti-depressants or anxiolytics. The result is a unique perspective when it comes to solving any skin problems.
Mind-skin connection is real.
Emotions manifest themselves particularly strongly when it comes to the skin. This connection begins in the uterus. This is because the skin and nervous system share common embryonic origin, i.e. the same cells form both the brain and skin, explains Josie Howard, a psychiatrist with experience in psychodermatology.
Every time we feel tension, we release cortisol, a hormone intended to be pumped only a few seconds. When cortisone is very high, it has many negative effects on the skin. Excess cortisol breaks down collagen, increases moisture loss, dilates blood vessels, causes inflammation, slows cell rotation and increases sebum production. This leads to wrinkles, dryness, irritation, opacity, breakouts.
Sleep is the best cure. While we sleep at night, cortisol levels are at no lower point, maximizing their repair capacity. Feeling serene or optimistic has similar effects to getting a good night’s sleep (that’s why when we’re happy we’re told we’re glowing). Sexual activity also benefits our skin, not only reducing cortisol, it also increases beta-endorphin like oxytocin, an anti-inflammatory molecule.
Because skin and mind are so intertwined, psychodermatologists recommend a treatment approach of both ends. A chronic condition such as acne or eczema is usually exacerbated by stress, so we should apply anti-stress practices such as meditation, regular exercise, herbal teas, etc. to our beauty routine. María del Mar Aguilera Zuheros, Miss World Spain 2019 argues in her theory of skin psychology, which is the largest organ of our body and reflects clear evidence of our mood and health. The skin is a mirror of what we carry inside and it has been shown that the features of the face (including the skin) influence how we are judged by others unconsciously, or we make important decisions regarding a person based on their appearance, health status and skin (e.g. choosing someone among several candidates, voting for someone, choose someone for a job).
Of course, we all unconsciously judge people's health and care based on their appearance. Skin is one of those determining factors. More important than we thought, right? Not only does beautiful skin make us feel more attractive, it can also be decisive for us to be chosen in a job. So, let's take care of ourselves!
Definitely any alteration in your daily life shows immediately in the face, the eyes, the skin, making every sign of fatigue, lack of sleep, etc, so evident. And from the moment I started changing the routines in my daily life, I had to start taking care of my skin much more than before.
In photo shoots many long-lasting products are used, some of them are very aggressive for the skin, the most important in skin care is to remove makeup very well, soothe and moisturize it.
Indeed, it is very common and there are also very few effective treatments that actually solve the problem beyond calming it down. As a solution I would recommend without hesitation, SQOOM XCential serums and devices, which acts as a regenerator of cells from the inner layers and is able to solve any problem in our skin.
A good makeup remover, tonic, moisturizer and SQOOM treatment along with its XCential Serums. There is no imperfection in the skin that resists to that perfect combination.
The face is the mirror of the soul, if we do not take care of our soul and mind, it will obviously be reflected in it.Everything is complementary, and we can see it ourselves with a special light on our faces when we are truly happy.
Why is synchronization being so important in skincare sessions?
The micro computer controlled mobile multifunction handheld device works with a highly developed ion technology (medical iontophoresis) as well as an electronic controlled pulsed ultrasound (sonophoresis). SQOOM is worldwide the only handheld device with this innovative function.
With the synchron function old skin cells are being removed. The ionization function has the effect of opening and contracting the pores. The cathode and the anode are being used in order to create a strong enough current and to get the so called ionic migration inside the dermal tissue going. The preparation which shall be transported into the skin is loaded up by the tension in the transducer and migrates to the counter-pole inside the dermal tissue (galvanic function). Therefore the synovium as well as the subjacent tissue can be provided with a high concentration of the agents.
This plays a big role in the cosmetic as well as in the dermatological sector.
The iontophoresis is described by scientists as a progressive and at the same time a very gentle method for treating cosmetic as well as dermatologic skin problems. The synchron function links the iontophoresis with the sonophorese and increases significantly the effectiveness of both methods.
Scientific research at the well-respected Hiroshima university of Japan has demonstrated that the agents which have been transported 30 times into the dermal layer and 40 times into the epidermal layer compared to hand application with the synchron function. The innovative multi function gives SQOOM a special position in the market.
The mobile system with charger station fulfills the requirements of a modern, secure, fast and successful beauty and healthcare treatment. The deep-penetrating micro massage combined with the especially for this device developed active ingredients compounds optimizes the success of the treatment.
