There’s a whole range of male-marketed beauty products and treatments out there, from ‘man-scara’ and ‘guy-liner’, to ‘energising’ moisturisers and very manly manicures.
And why not? If women can fight spots, blemishes, eye-bags and wrinkles with all the fantastic products on offer today, why can’t men?
According to The Harley Medical Group, modern men aren’t ashamed of looking after themselves anymore, and they’re not even stopping at makeup in their efforts to remain eternally youthful.
Today one in five Botox patients is a man. Skin Director Dr Aamer Khan of the Harley Street Clinic said: “Botox for men is a growing market. It is becoming more and more acceptable.”
Botox is a very popular and effective treatment for smoothing out wrinkles and is thought to be used by a huge number of female celebrities including Madonna, Katie Price and Kylie Minogue.
Research shows that men are more likely to opt for the treatment if their partners have too. However, men tend to start their treatment about 10 years later than women, during their late thirties.
Simon Cowell has recently admitted to using Botox twice this year, and Gordon Ramsey’s famously wrinkly forehead has mysteriously ironed itself out, prompting speculations that he’s a regular Harley Street client.
What do you think of men who use Botox? Are they vain/ high-maintenance? Would you rather they leave you to the beauty treatments and allow themselves to age naturally? Leave your comments below!
