Self-care isn’t just a buzzphrase, it’s something we all need to do to keep our mental and physical health on track. Self-care can look like all kinds of things; from spa treatments to tucking into a good meal with friends. It’s really any activity that puts your health, relaxation, and well-being first. One of the most popular forms of self-care is a good old pamper day — think deep tissue massages, and skin and hair treatments. If you’re under the impression that pampering is only for women, we couldn’t disagree more. Outdated stereotypes and norms have left guys out of the self-care space for far too long, and it’s about time we reject the idea that men can’t enjoy a pamper day.  If you’re a guy looking to indulge in a little self-care with your mates, it can be tricky to know where to start. We’ve got you. In this guide, we’ll break down how to throw a pamper party for guys, covering everything from DIY set-ups to treatments and activities outside the home.

Pamper Party Ideas For Guys

Whether you’re after some DIY self-care or you’re into salon-based treatments, we take you through our top recommendations for the ultimate men’s pamper day.  Top Tip: Our Pamper Card can be used at any day spa, salon, or beauty clinic in Australia that accepts EFTPOS, so if you’re looking to surprise a special guy in your life with a pamper day, The Pamper Card is for you. 

Hair Care For Guys

There’s nothing quite like a fresh shave and haircut, so why not kickstart your pamper day with some haircare.  Head out to a barbershop with the boys and treat yourselves to a shave and trim. You could pick any street-corner barber, or you could splurge on a luxurious barbershop for the very best self-care experience. The head massage that comes with a haircut? We could all use one of those. For those opting for a DIY self-care day, choose a trusty set of clippers and a fresh razor and get to work. If you’ve got a mate with a steady hand and some hair-cutting experience, even better!    

Spa Treatments

Indulge in some quality spa treatments on your dedicated pamper day. Head out to your nearest hot springs for a day of pure relaxation. Not only will the hot springs leave you feeling chilled out and rejuvenated, but you’ll also enjoy a mini road trip with the boys on the way.  Alternatively, a massage is always a good idea. Our bodies go through a lot and we rarely take the time to invest in reparation and recovery. Book everyone in for the restorative massage of their choice.  For an at-home or cost-friendly option, head to the beach for a refreshing swim. If one of your mates has a spa, head over with some beverages for a DIY hot springs experience. 

Skin Care Treatments

A good skincare routine can slow the effects of ageing, as well as reduce common issues such as acne, dryness, inflammation, and redness. By nature, men’s skin is generally thicker, coarser, and oilier than women’s skin, which makes skin care for guys even more important.  Go all out and visit a salon for your skin treatment. We suggest a classic facial or peel for refreshed and hydrated skin. If you’re looking for more heavy-duty treatments, you could look into microdermabrasion or micro-needling.     If your self-care pamper day is taking place at home, get the boys around, put your feet up, and put on a face mask. Masks are an easy and hassle-free introduction to skincare products for guys. Let’s be honest — the face mask is always the best part of a pamper day, anyway. Charcoal peel masks will provide a deep and intense clean, while hydrogel masks focus on hydrating the skin, which is ideal for men with dry skin types. Masks made with natural ingredients like avocado and honey will also seriously moisturize the skin.   

Manicures And Pedicures (It’s Worth It, Trust Us)

Can guys get pedicures and manicures? Absolutely — hand and foot health is actually really important. If you work a job where you’re on your feet all day, they’re likely in need of some R&R. The same goes for guys who work with their hands. Whether you’re prone to calluses, ingrown nails, or your extremities are often exposed to dirt and grime, it’s important to take regular care of your hands and feet. A pamper day is a great time to start. Why not get a group together and head to a nail salon for a full manicure and pedicure treatment? It doesn’t have to involve nail polish (but it absolutely can, if that’s your thing). Treatments will usually involve a foot and hand spa, dead skin removal, nail clipping, and filing. The nail technician will then top off your treatment with lots of moisturisers and gels, which will leave your skin feeling ultra-smooth.    Wondering how to do a manicure and pedicure at home? You just need to purchase a few essential items. The bonus is that once you’ve got everything, you can repeat the treatments as many times as you wish to keep your hands and feet looking (and feeling) clean and smooth. You can purchase inexpensive foot spas, nail clippers, and nail files from Target or Kmart, and make your way into a salon to pick up purpose-fit exfoliators and moisturisers. 

Source Some Entertainment

If you’ve decided on doing a DIY self-care day, you’ll probably want some entertainment while you’re waiting for the face mask to work its magic. Grab a drink, kick back and watch a game.  When it comes to pamper party games for guys, switch on the Playstation and set up a friendly competition — the loser buys everyone dinner. Or, take out a deck of cards and get stuck into poker. 

Head Out For A Good Feed

Whether you’ve been relaxing at home or out and about, round out the day with a good meal. If your group loves a pub, you can use The Pub & Bar Card to shout your mates at any bar or pub in Australia that accepts EFTPOS. Are restaurants more your scene? Opt for the Restaurant Gift Card instead.   

Self-Care Starts…Now 

It’s time to get the group together for some well-deserved relaxation. Whether the DIY options appeal to you, or you’re keen to maximise the experience at a day spa, your body and mind will thank you for taking some time out.
