3 Hand Care and Nail Care Tips for Rochester, MN Men

As a distinguished Rochester, MN man, you should aspire to take care of your body from head to toe. At MenSalon, we offer several different services to give you the treatment and grooming you deserve.

We also like to share tips to help you maintain your appearance and health in between visits.

Today we’re going to share a few nail care and hand care tips. Whether you work behind a desk or work with your hands, taking care of them is imperative.

Why Nail Care and Hand Care Is Important

 What action do you perform when meeting someone new? You shake hands. Oddly enough, your hands are on display quite a bit and they can be a testament to the level of care you put into your appearance. In 2017, you want to be a well-groomed, polished, and stylish man because the standards for appearance have changed. Not only is the stigma around self-care for men gone, more and more smart and savvy men are embracing it and are respected for it.

Have you ever received a manicure from a professional salon? If the answer’s no, it’s time to visit MenSalon LLC in Rochester, MN, and experience a rejuvenating and appearance-boosting appointment.

In the meantime, here are a few nail care and hand care tips you can use:

  1. Remove callouses – If you work in an industry involving manual labor or lift weights often, you’ve probably developed calluses. To remove them, you can use a pumice stone after softening your hands after showering or taking a bath. Perform this routine on a weekly basis to keep new calluses from developing.
  2. Trim and file often – You know keeping your nails trimmed is important, but filing matters too. Filing correctly gives your nails the proper counter. After trimming your nails, make sure to file away any jagged edges to protect your cuticles and give them a uniform appearance.
  3. Moisturize your cuticles – Cuticles are an often-ignored area of the hand, especially for men. You can use over the counter products or natural substances like coconut oil to keep those nail-protecting patches of skin healthy.

Nail care and hand care are a few of the many items you should pay attention to in order to maintain the type of appearance others admire, which also makes you look as good on the outside as you feel on the inside.

Why Rochester, MN Men Should Try Waxing Services by MenSalon LLC

Here at MenSalon LLC, we’re all about providing beneficial experiences for the men of
Rochester, MN in a comfortable environment.

If you’re looking to try something new such as a manicure, facial, or spa treatment, look no further. When trying something new, it’s nice to know the benefits and experience you can expect.

Today, we’re going to talk about waxing, and why you should try it, the benefits it provides, and give answers to your frequently asked questions.

Why Try Waxing?  

 Waxing is great if you have unwanted hair you need removed in areas such as on your back or chest.

Some men prefer hair in those areas, but others are looking for a change and simply haven’t taken the leap yet.

Waxing is a safe and easy way to not only remove hair from unwanted areas but to keep it from growing back as quickly as it would if you had shaved it. Don’t let the movies fool you, waxing isn’t nearly as excruciating as they make it seem.

In 2017, men can and should embrace a different look. If you’ve been curious about waxing, why not give it a try?

The Benefits of Waxing

 There are many benefits to waxing including:

  • Skin exfoliation – Waxing helps remove dead skin cells and thus acts as an exfoliant. Not only will you rid your skin of unwanted hair, it’ll also be smooth and rejuvenated at the same time.
  • Less irritation – Waxing as opposed to shaving a certain area means less irritating stubble.
  • Lengthens return of hair – The area you wax will remain hairless for up to eight weeks, and when the hair grows back, it may not be as rough and course as it was before.

Waxing FAQs 

  • What do I need to do between waxes to maintain the look? Nothing! The best part about waxing is the fact there’s no maintenance needed between visits. Keep regular appointments and you’re good to go.
  • Which body parts do you wax? Our waxing services include chest, back, brow, nose, and ears.
  • I’ve got sunburn/windburn, a recent scar, a new tattoo, a sore bit, rash/graze, hairy mole, varicose vein, etc. Can I still get waxed? It depends on the type of irritation. If you have questions, please give us a call, and we’ll let you know whether we can help or not.
