Seoul's male-only spas and facilities push skincare and beauty tips
Korean male spas
I'm not vain. I just love myself.

Korean men sure love to spend money on … themselves. 

Not only were men's clothing sales higher than women's in Korea last year, but Korean men accounted for 18 percent of the world's male skincare market, officially making Korea the biggest market in the world for male cosmetics, Chosun Ilbo reported Monday. 

They aren't shy about it either, as frequenting beauty facilities is increasingly becoming the norm for Korean men. 

Need some respite from the women in your life, or just want some male makeup tips? Check out these two male-only facilities in Seoul:

Medi Spa (Skincare, massage and health checkups)
