Along with using preventive measures to avoid skin cancer, men also need to take the proper measures to take care of their skin after prolonged sun exposure, Nikki Miller, lead esthetican at Kohler Waters Spa, Kohler, Wisconsin, exclusively tells SkinInc.com. Kohler is a destination spa that works with many male clients due to its world-class golf round courses, The American Club Resort's Whistling Straits and Blackwolf Run.

“Men, especially those over 50, need to take care of their skin just as much as women. By the time they are in their 50s, men have accumulated years of sun exposure, whether due to their professions, playing sports, spending time with families outdoors, vacations or doing yard work. A great first step in skin care is for men to consider getting facials a couple of times a year. The Gentleman’s Skin Care Facial offered at the spa features products specifically designed for men’s skin, which has a thicker texture and larger pores due to their facial hair. It features a customized mask is applied to purify, soothe and hydrate men's skin. "In addition to cleansing and moisturizing with an SPF moisturizer for sun protection, the facial includes exfoliating which men typically never do enough of.There is also a skin consultation and mask, and other five star spa touches, including an arm/hand massage and facial/neck/shoulder massage.”

Kohler Waters Spa estheticians often inquire whether guests are seeing a dermatologist on a regular basis for skin checks and encourage all guests—male and female—to do so. The same applies for men over 50 with skin care and sun protection for their bodies. Body treatments and wraps that incorporate exfoliation and SPF moisturizers can enhance the skin and detoxify the body, which help to make older men look and feel better.
