Spa For Men: Is It Your First Time, Guys?

5/21/2018 12:00:00 AM


Today’s idea of the ‘modern man’ is stylish, successful and well groomed which is why it’s high time to put aside your preconceptions and treat yourself to a day at the spa.

Pampering sessions are stereotypically associated with women and due to a fear of losing ‘man points’ the male sex will often snigger at the idea of indulging in any kind of spa treatment. But it’s time to re-evaluate just what is manly and what is not.

There’s nothing more appealing than a man who is confident in who he is and ignores the traditional stereotypes of the sexes. It is now pretty much expected for a man to take care of himself and pay attention to grooming and maintaining his appearance.

Spas are rapidly catering more and more for their male guests, with tailored treatments, products and facilities, leaving no excuse for you not to become a regular spa-goer. There are proven health benefits of many the treatments that you can enjoy at your local spa, such as the stress-busting properties of massage or the rejuvenating results of a men's facial.

A lot of men would steer clear from treatments such as facials or pedicures as they can often seem to be more about ‘beauty’ than health. This, however, is not the case. Spa treatments designed specifically for men will leave you looking fresh and feeling great without leaving the telltale scent of jasmine or other scents typically associated with the female sex.

Treating yourself to a regular facial will keep your skin looking healthy and clear, something that is more and more expected of today’s men. Even something like a manicure or pedicure may seem extremely feminine, but in fact, it will leave you looking clean and well maintained as well as making you feel great.

Heading to a spa for the first time can be daunting for everyone as you may worry that you don’t know the appropriate etiquette or way to behave. If you are unsure of anything during your trip to the spa you simply need to ask a member of staff there and they’ll steer you in the right direction, just remember that they are perfectly used to newcomers.

Nowadays around 35% of all spa-goers are men, so jump on the band wagon guys and allow yourself to be pampered and groomed to bring out the very best version of you that there is.

After all, there’s nothing more manly than a man who is willing to try something new, no matter what it may be.
