11+ Men Who Could Teach Us A Thing Or Two About Self-Care

Diply 13 Sep 2018

Self-care is having a moment right now, and I am here for it. Thanks to the internet, it's never been easier to learn how to properly look after your skin, body, and mental health!

Buuuuut, this movement is pretty female-centric. Most self-care-related content is coming from women and female-identifying people.

So today, let's celebrate the dudes who are absolutely rocking the self-care game and proving that loving yourself sick is for everyone.

1. Soft towels, green face, can't lose.

How does Bretman look so good before the face mask has even come off?! I come out of the shower looking like a boiled egg, with a face mask that makes me look like a crusty old gargoyle.

2. Honestly, I don't know why men pretend that they don't like pedicures.

Especially if they haven't even tried it!

I can tell by the look on this dude's face that this ain't the last pedicure he'll be treatin' himself to.

3. Face masks? More like bae masks. (Yes, I know that was really terrible wordplay and I apologize.)

The only thing better than slapping on a face mask is slapping one on the face of the person you love. BRB, dying from the cuteness of this couple!

4. Shave the last dance.

This was Instagram user @authenticallyjax's first time shaving his gorgeous face! If this isn't the epitome of self-care — looking after your body in a way that makes you super happy — then I don't know what is.

5. Shoutout to all the people whose self-care is less about feeling pampered and more about hard work.

6. Always pore your heart into your skin regime.

Honestly, I really only said that for the fun use of the word "pore". A few extra minutes a day, like @srurias05, is all you need to up your skincare game.

7. My man Larry gave himself a different type of pampering.

Instead of pampering himself with a manicure or massage on his birthday, he pampered himself with a fishing trip. Saturdays are for the boys, amirite?

8. Sometimes men need to be shown the ways of self-care.

But once they have experienced it, there is no going back. Like, seriously, who turns their back on treating themselves good?

9. TFW the face mask matches the flowers in the background.

Ethan Dolan is giving us all a hot tip for leveling up your skin care routine — color coordinate everything (and maybe throw in a pout).

10. If this ain't self-care, then I don't know what is. 

Twitter | @RealLittleDanny

Sometimes you just need a li'l time to yourself — a li'l time to catch up on your favorite Netflix shows and eat your favorite ice cream sundae at your favorite restaurant.

11. Shine bright like a face mask.

Apparently, not all that glitters is gold — sometimes it's a pink face mask like this one @mrkendenis is rocking (and with the bath bomb to match)!

12. Had I ever considered bath-only sunglasses before seeing this picture? No, I had not. Will I be investing in a pair now? Absolutely.

If Manny Mua's bath isn't the most decadent bath you've ever seen, then you're straight lying, sweetie.

13. Two face masks? Or just a huge amount of support for Israel, Argentina, Finland, or any other country with a blue and white flag?

Instagram | @_jacobhalam

Who says you can't target two skin problems at once? Certainly not @_jacobhalam.

14. FYI, treating yourself feels way better than getting treated by someone else! 

Twitter | @RuleEdward

So, take some notes from Ed and buy yourself that rose! Eat straight from the honey jar if you want to!

15. There are no defined self-care rules. 

Twitter | @Jaylinkin

Do what makes you feel good — whether it's putting on a face mask, eating an entire pizza to yourself, or drinking coffee from a mug with your pretty li'l face on it.

But, seriously. Don't be afraid to treat yo' self.


And if that means that you find yourself in a room full of puppies, giggling to yourself on the floor like Peter Griffin, so be it!
