Male beauty has often taken a back seat in UK culture for lots of reasons. But the idea of what masculine means has certainly changed over the last 10 years, and nowadays, men can feel freer and more able to look after themselves in the way they want to.
In addition, social media has contributed to the pressure a lot of men feel to look younger, fresher, more muscular and generally more preened.
Kent Smile Studio based in Maidstone and Chatham has seen a rise in the number of men visiting for both oral and facial cosmetic enhancement. We’re always happy to help men and women enhance the features they feel could be improved with our facial aesthetics and cosmetic dentistry treatments.
These days, there are lots of different treatments and services on offer for men, to help them feel groomed and presentable. With that in mind, here are some of the key male beauty trends currently taking the UK by storm:
Skin Treatments Especially Formulated For Men
Men have different skin needs to women because shaving can cause aggravation, and natural facial oil production can differ. Men may also have hardy jobs without having a day to day skin care regime that matches, so the skin can suffer over time. In the past, men may not have been expected to take care of their skin, or they might have not thought to as it just wasn’t part of cultural expectations. Advertising has also not targeted male skincare, so many men didn’t know there were products available for their needs.
There are now skin treatments especially formulated for men, such as facials. There are also specific skin products for men, including entire ranges with moisturisers, serums, exfoliants and pore refiners. These skin treatments and products are increasingly available, with ranges especially for men appearing in supermarkets and with advertising campaigns by well known clinics.
Named ‘Brotox’ by the press, male botox and filler treatments are becoming more and more popular with men who want to fight back against the ageing process. Botox is used to relax the muscles that cause fine lines and wrinkles, whereas fillers are used to sculpt the face and enhance facial features. Some men may have professional treatment to reduce the signs of ageing, whilst others are even opting to have lip fillers these days to perfect their pout! As the treatments are so subtle and focused when applied by a skilled and experienced facial aesthetics practitioner, men are able to have treatment to look refreshed, without anybody knowing what they had done. A lot of people simply want to look like they have had a fantastic nights sleep. In some instances, there might be one deep frown line that is causing insecurity, which can be readily treated with Botox and fillers.
Makeup For Men
Makeup for men has been heavily promoted in a well known makeover show called Queer Eye on Netflix. As part of the complete life makeover provided to contestants, makeup products and tips are provided to both men and women to help as a part of day to day self care.
Makeup for men works to help balance out uneven skin tone, smooth pores and to shape and set groomed eyebrows. There are also some refined hair products for men that work on thickening thinning hair, to help disguise the hair-loss process.
Hair Loss Treatments
In the past, male hair loss was seen to be something that was meant to be accepted, or if you didn’t want to accept it, getting a wig or a hair transplant was seen as something to be kept secret. Many men in the past have secretly worn wigs and the process of getting a wig was quite secretive. Some customers of the wig shop even visited in disguise and asked the shop owner to be discreet about having them as a customer.
These days, many celebrities have been open about getting a hair transplant and fighting the male pattern baldness process. For that reason, along with technical advances in hair loss treatments, many men are now openly seeking a solution to their hair loss problems. Treatments are a lot of more effective these days as in the past, the industry was not as advanced as it is now. The cost can be worth the results, and the lengthy treatment process is quite rightly, not something to be ashamed of.
Teeth whitening is a quick and effective treatment provided by a professionally qualified dentist to help improve the appearance of teeth. Teeth can be whitened by several shades, providing an instant enhancement to the smile aesthetic. Men who wish to enjoy the perfect smile are opting for teeth whitening to feel more confident about their looks. As the treatment is not invasive, and is extremely quick and convenient, it is an easy way for anybody to quickly improve the way they look and often, the way they feel too because of an improved sense of self confidence.
