Our team at MenSalon in Rochester, MN, understands that maintaining a skin care routine can be difficult, especially if you don’t know where to begin your research on what will and won’t work for you. Practical skin care doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive, and we know that keeping a routine often means keeping a routine simple. If you’re hoping to improve the look and feel of your skin, it’s always a good idea to start with the basics.


The basics of caring for your skin are fairly universal among the sexes. Regardless of your skin type, you should always use sunscreen, drink plenty of water, and moisturize frequently. These three tips are often repeated in skin care guides around the globe for good reason, but beyond these foundational steps, finding a routine that works for your lifestyle and skin type can be tricky if you don’t know which other tips to believe or discard. This is especially true when almost every product claims to do the same things.


The most important step you can take while developing a care routine for your skin is pinpointing what, if any, skin issues you’re dealing with. If you’re prone to acne, dry patches, or oiliness, there are steps you can take to mitigate these symptoms individually. In fact, a visit to your local salon is a great way to discuss your questions with professionals who know how to treat a variety of skin concerns.


A professional facial can be the perfect place to start as you’ll get to see what a comprehensive face cleaning routine looks like when performed by a trained hand. Depending upon the concerns you have, our salon team can follow up with a recommendation for the next steps you can take at home.


Once you feel comfortable maintaining a care routine at home, it’s not unwise to begin the inclusion of the occasional professional facial into your long-term skin care regimen. Our skin care team has the experience and the training to spot skin care concerns that may be easily missed without proper attention and, if you haven’t found the routine that works for you yet, our professional facials can restore your skin to a healthy, comfortable state during those awkward in-between stages.
