Anniversary Special: Men’s Skin Care Revolution


When Ole began his treatments in the early ’70s, men’s skin care was a relatively uncharted domain. “When Kirk Douglas first started consulting me in 1975, he clearly stated that he did not want it to be known that he was seeking professional treatment,” he says. “Today, as a 92 year old man, Kirk still comes in for his regular treatments and for the last several decades, he has been totally open to the public about his treatments at my spa.”

Within the past few years, Ole says that more men have come to understand that taking care of one’s skin is a mere extension of overall wellness and simply looking and feeling great. What was almost taboo has now become part of daily life for many men. In 2008, Ole designed a kit to suit the specific needs of the male complexion aptly named the men’s kit. Complete with refreshing natural hair wash, texture-improving walnut complexion scrub, skin tone-evening sheer transformation and skin clearing on the go cleanser, this kit is designed to meet the needs of every man.

Once believed to be a gay man’s domain, skin care has become a universal concern for straight men. “I have noticed that of the men that seek out my spa services, approximately 10 percent of those men are gay,” he says. “Clearly, your average straight male is now embracing the many benefits of great skin care.”

    Hej Ole,
    endnu ingen kommentarer, jeg vil blot gerne vide om jeg kan overraske min søn med en behandling hos dig. Han bor i Santa Monica, og fylder 30 år her i februar. Kan du oplyse mig hvor meget en Men’s Skin Care vil koste? Han har et krævende job i et auktionshus med klassiske biler i L.A. og kunne virkelig trænge til et par timers antistress!!

    I love ole products and am thankful for these skin care products that are focused on men. It’s important that the cosmetics industry realizes that men are as concerned about their skin tone and complexion as women.
