Four Non-surgical Treatments for Men

Contrary to popular belief, there are several effective non-surgical procedures ideal for men. Below are some of the best:

Chemical Peel
If you suffer from excess pimples, blackheads or acne, a chemical peel could be just what you need. Skin can become clogged with dead skin cells – making it look dull and lifeless – but this treatment can help remove grime and grease from your face. It provides a deep form of exfoliation and will leave you feeling fresh, revitalized and in top form. There are a range of formulas available, so visit an experienced practitioner for advice.

Microdermabrasion
Everybody’s skin needs a little pick-me-up from time-to-time, so why not book a course of microdermabrasion? This non-surgical procedure gently polishes the top layer of skin and can reveal a glowing complexion. Each treatment usually takes around 45-minutes, but a course is usually recommended for optimum results. If you’re worried about visiting a clinic, learn how to make a homemade facemask and revitalize your appearance behind closed doors.

For slimmer nose, I like to contour using dark brown matte eye shadow (two shades darker than my skin tone). Starting from the end of the eyebrow, draw a line using small eye shadow brush down to the tip of the nose. Then blend the edge with a fluffy brush for a more natural finish. You can also sweep a bit of highlighter along the nose bridge to accentuate your “new” nose.
