Maisolence for Men: Healthy facial care and so much more at Atelier de Beaute, Sierra Cortina

On 5 March 2020, beauty company Maisolence opened its luxurious new beauty parlour at Sierra Cortina, on Spain’s Northern Costa Blanca. The company prides itself on its holistic approach to beauty and skincare, with the emphasis on sustainability, protection of the environment and assistance and encouragement to everyone who aspires to healthy beauty, inside and outside the body.


Maisolence uses its own ethically created products, and only works with other brands who mirror their commitment. The new salon and high end beauty boutique carries a comprehensive range of products. Clients can take away everything they need to recreate the salon experience. Regular deep cleansing facials and skin care routines help to ensure the optimum condition of the body’s largest organ, whatever your age, occupation or lifestyle.


Maisolence for men

Not so long ago, skin health and care was the exclusive preserve of ladies. Men were men, and the women were thankful! They washed in carbolic soap, with maybe a splash of aftershave on special occasions, as long as it smelled sufficiently masculine and not effeminate in any way.


Today’s men are more aware of the need for skin health. They realise that it’s not just a matter of looking good for the ladies – skin problems can migrate to other areas of the body, and cause infections and all kinds of health issues. For example, Dark circles under the eyes can be an indicator of poor health caused by lack of sleep, or other problems. Address this swiftly and successfully with high quality eye serum from Hommage.


Thanks to the Internet, plus increased awareness of the possible unwelcome effects of using chemically based skin and body care products, both men and women are more switched on regarding skin health. They appreciate the advantages of using natural products that work to gently remove impurities and restore balance to the skin, while assisting in the bodily process of cell repair and renewal.


There is also better understanding of the possible impact of skin issues these days. Just a generation ago, these were accepted as an inevitable consequence of aging and the environment, or worse, ignored altogether, in the hope they would disappear.


What we apply to our skin is only a small part of caring for this important organ which, it must be said, needs to last a lifetime. Working conditions, diet, lifestyle and weather


extremes are all capable of compromising the integrity of the skin. The good news is, with a little knowledge, common sense and encouragement from establishments like the Atelier de Beauté, men have never been in a better position to protect their skin from the vagaries of modern living.


Let’s take a quick look at the skincare challenges the modern man faces – pun intended! The experts at Maisolence can help a lot, but it’s your skin you’re in, so it’s in your best interests to do your share of the care. Small changes can lead to significant benefits, once you realise what you need to do to keep your skin healthy, and why.


A different type of skin


Maisolence for men

It may not be immediately obvious, but there are a number of differences in the composition and texture of male and female skin. These can create unique skin care issues, which may require special treatment from someone conversant with the requirements of male skin care.


More hair on the skin


The obvious difference that springs to mind is, male skin is generally much hairier that its female counterpart. Right up to the mid 20th century, the Bearded Lady was a popular side show at circuses and exhibitions. These unusually hirsute women often suffered from a genentic condition, or the beard was a blatant fake, but most men can rustle up a set of whiskers with a little notice.


20% thicker skin


Another, not so obvious difference is that men’s skin is over 20 per cent thicker than the bodily covering of ladies. This is due to hormonal activity – notably testosterone – and it’s one of the reasons why acne in men is more difficult to treat and cure. Men also produce more sebum and collagen.

This means that generally, men will not show evidence of wrinkles and fine lines as early in life as women, so they appear to be aging well, like fine wine. However, women tend to be better educated on skin care, and also realise that to keep the signs of aging at bay, they need to establish a skin care routine long before they need it, to hold back the years and allow the skin to age gradually and gracefully.


Men are slow to spot early warning  signs, and are notorious for not using sunscreen to protect the skin from damage by ultraviolet (UV) rays. And when the damage is done, many men are unaware of the important role of antioxidants in tissue repair, and the prevention of potentially deadly skin cancers. Counteract these potential issues by using Hommage’s specially formulated Fortify Moisturiser.


Oily skin


Women can – and do – have problems with oily skin. However, the increased hormonal activity and sebum production specific to men brings its own problems. Breakouts and acne are more common and more extensive in men. This can lead to enlarged oil glands and acne scarring. Using products that dry out the skin can make the problem worse, resulting in skin irritation, and even increased oil production, thus exacerbating the problem.


Razor bumps


Gentlemen, if you want to stay in and watch the football rather than accompany the lady in your life to the latest chick flick, call her and say you have a nasty case of Pseudofolliculitis Barbae (PB).  Explain regretfully that you’ve been advised to stay indoors and avoid contact with others for the next 24 hours (or 48 hours, if there’s another big match on tomorrow).


That’s about the only good thing about razor bumps – or PB, to give it the medical term, so make the most of it while you can!


Razor bumps are nothing to laugh at – they are unsightly and sore, and they will ruin your good looks, if only temporarily. The main cause of this embarrassing skin condition is not shaving properly, which means the hairs curl and grow backwards into the skin, and cause all manner of problems. Razor bumps can result in infections, pimples and scarring. Hommage’s Soothe Shave Balm is ideal for soothing frequently shaved skin, and reducing the risk of razor bumps.


Now you’re aware of the skin issues men face, you’re probably wondering how Atelier de Beauté, Sierra de Cortina, can help, other than by recommending products for your skin and offering advice on care and prevention. Here’s how!




The salon offers two excellent facials, specially designed for the unique health requirements of male skin. All treatments are carried out by friendly, experienced beauty professionals, and all steps are discussed and agreed on before your treatment starts. Your therapist will need to ask questions about lifestyle, skin problems, allergies and intolerances, as well as any underlying health issues. This is necessary to ensure you receive the best treatment for your skin type, age and lifestyle, since not all skin problems are immediately visible, even to professional beauty practitioners.


50 Minute Deep Cleansing and Exfoliation Treatment – €55


If serious holistic skin care is something you are newly considering as an essential component of your grooming routine, make a start with this effective facial. In order for any treatment to work well, it needs the best possible conditions, and the fresh canvas of a thoroughly cleansed complexion is a great start.


Exfoliation removes dead skin cells from the surface of the skin, immediately resulting in a clearer, fresher, healthier looking complexion. Deep cleansing then removes particles of dirt, excess oil and other foreign matter from the dermis. This is the secondary layer of skin, immediately below the epidermis, where connective tissue, sweat glands, blood vessels, nerves, hair follicles work away at keeping your skin healthy.


The deep cleanse allows the products that will be used to balance and clear your skin to penetrate the dermis and obtain the best results possible. This treatment is ideal for balancing the pH (Acid/alkaline balance of the skin), removing physical and environmental impurities and clearing blocked pores.


50 Minute Skin Definition Facial Treatment – €65


When your skin is healthily clean and glowing, and you’ve established a beneficial skin care regime, you are ready for a more specialised treatment. This facial is designed to combat the signs of aging, and also detoxify and hydrate the skin. The focus is on plumping and strengthening the skin, stimulating collagen production to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, and ensuring the complexion is adequately moisturised.

It’s more intense, and the benefits build over time, as your skin gradually becomes more elastic and younger-looking. The results of the deep cleansing and exfoliating facial treatment are immediately obvious and encouraging; the skin definition facial is designed to stimulate long term, sustainable improvement in skin health by working with the body’s natural systems to help you look and feel younger and minimise the effects of environmental influences.
