And what about our genes?
When it comes to men taking care of their skin and overall “male beauty” regiment, not all of us are as educated as others.
Things such as taking a bath and not hydrating our skin afterwards or even not brushing our teeth before bed can take a toll on us…until now.
Check out these tips on “mannin’-up” your skin care:
Making That Dry, Rough Skin Better
For dry skin, remedies like unrefined coconut oil or jojoba oil are helpful to apply where needed. Moisturize at night if you’re not the type to invest in those Olay products. Look for lotions by Aveeno, Nivea, and Eucerin. They work great on dry skin. Also, for your feet? Try Gold Bond followed by wearing socks to help keep the moisture enclosed. In a few weeks, you do see a difference.
Wrinkles, Yep…We Don’t Want Them
Look fellas, we are going to age but we can still keep some things under control a bit. Now while you keep your skin hydrated and moisturized to minimize the appearance, wrinkles can be associated with your diet.
- Minimize consuming coffee and caffeinated teas due to its ability to dehydrate your skin
- Bump the artificial sweeteners and sugars; raw honey/sugar is a better choice
- Watery fruits and veggies can also add into hydrating skin for a better look (think grapefruit, watermelon, etc.)
Feet, Ummm…Someone Is Going To Want You Sock-less At Some Point
Feet are important to maintain fellas and not just for us personally, but for those bed partner(s) as well. Look, creams are “okay” to use, but other ways such as your socks can make a difference. According to GQ, opt for high quality cotton and cashmere socks to help your feet breath while in shoes.
Also, your toenails don’t grow as quick as fingernails so work to clip them every two to three weeks. Clippers like Mehaz Stainless Steel Clippers work great for all toenails with a curved blade. Top it off with a filer to get the edges and create an overall neat look. If all else fails, we’re pretty sure its a nail shop close to your home. Put that pride aside and let the professionals handle it.
