It’s not just the women
who get to be pampered

The term ‘metrosexual’ has been around for
some time, but it’s not a category most men
fit into. Forget the image of the dandified
metrosexual, and consider the average man
on the street. Times really have changed. The
majority of ‘real’ men own an array of grooming
products, take care of their appearance, and
even glance in the mirror from time to time.

In recognition of this very real trend, Zen
Lifestyle offer a selection of facials and
massages designed specifically for men.

Facials have a number of immediate skin
benefits. If you’re suffering from clogged pores
or blemishes, they will draw out the impurities in
your skin leaving it clear and healthy. A facial can

also soften fine lines and wrinkles. Try our Deep
Cleansing Facial to cleanse the skin and give
you a glow of natural health. It includes a shave
and head massage. For even more pampering,
go for our Ultimate Relaxation Facial, which
includes a scalp, foot and arm massage.
