Men are Paying Attention!


mens-skin-care_100432680% of men claim they try to look attractive and stylish at all times. Earlier they were satisfied with the creams and lotions that their mother and sister used, but now they are demanding products that are specially designed for them. And their demands are being generously conceded by the markets today.

Women are more beauty conscious than men- no longer holds water. Today, even men are paying similar prices as women for their beauty products. Why not, even they have beauty needs, they too have the right to get noticed and stay looking younger longer. But, unlike women, they cannot usually camouflage behind makeup, so all the more reason to take utmost care of their skin and overall health to look their best.

As men’s skin has bigger pores, than women’s skin, it is highly prone to oiliness, blemishes and acne. Daily cleaning and occasional scrubbing is a must. Choose products that are all-natural and fragrance- free, if possible, to avoid irritation.

Exfoliate:  Cleaning and exfoliating the skin regularly is a must to have a radiant and smooth skin. Men have oilier skin than women so they should use a soap-free cleanser and a face gel or a water based moisturizer. A moisturizer that contains clay properties can also be used. Also splash some water on the face every few hours.
Exfoliation sloughs off dead skin cells, blackheads and white heads – think of giving your skin a scrub. Ginseng Actif For Men Daily Face Scrub is a complete package for the rugged skin.

Before you shave, wash your face with a soap-free face wash, wet the beard with warm water and let it soak well for a minute or two.

Hair Care

The commonest hair problems that men face are hair loss, gray hair and dandruff. This is basically due to lack of use of compatible hair care products and also due to the raving dust, pollution and harmful UV rays of the sun. The following hair care tips will help you improve your hair and will rid you of hair problems.

  • Care for your scalp. Always use a mild shampoo, followed by a hydrating conditioner. If you have dandruff, use a good anti-dandruff shampoo and conditioner.
  • Wash your hair at least thrice a week and massage your hair and scalp with oil that contains vitamin E. Leave the oil on for a few hours before you wash it off.
  • Always use lukewarm or cool water for hair wash. Very hot water can ruin the texture of your hair leaving it dry and listless.
  • Do not blow dry your hair often as it might lead to breakage. Let your hair air dry and do not brush wet hair.
  • Make sure you get your hair cut or trimmed regularly and wear a cap or hat when venturing out in the sun and pollution.

Pamper your hands and feet

Your hands and feet too need equal attention. Well-manicured nails and toes cater to good hygiene and grooming habits. Take time to clip and file your nails at home.
