Beauty Secrets for Men ;)
« on: April 29, 2015, 10:09:46 PM »
When I was younger and getting ready for a night out on the town, it would take half an hour at the most to transform myself from Mr. Slob to Mr. Super-Cool-Dude. All it took was a quick shower and shave, a dash of aftershave and a spray of deodorant, a quick swipe of a comb through with a bit of Brylcreem, and I was good to go.

Getting that half hour to use the bathroom was the most difficult part of my simple beauty regime because my sister would be in there for at least three hours getting ready for her night out on the town: shaving, plucking, puffing, slicking, applying her war paint (cosmetics), and whatever else women do to preen themselves. Of course, after that, she would spend another hour or two in her bedroom, choosing clothes and accessories to match them.

Back then, women took a lot more pride in their appearence than men. But today, a man is expected to look like his looks are not an afterthought.

Shaving Tips

These days, shaving seems optional. A lot of ladies love men who have a five o'clock shadow, but this look doesn't work for everyone. Although it looks rather cool and rebellious, ironically, it only works if you've thought a lot about it. For example, there's a fine line between shadow and full-fledged beard, and if you have thick hair on your neck, that might not look so great. Plus, if your facial hair is unkempt or patchy, you'd better just take the razor to it and be clean-shaven for your night out.

Manicures for Men

Manicured nails look great on anyone. When you've got black stuff crusted under your nails, she's going to have to wonder where that hand has been, but you don't have to break the bank to get yourself a good manicure. Your mother and your sister, if you have one, have been doing their own nails for years and I am sure that they will gladly help you: all you have to do is ask. Plus, these days men go to nail places to get their nails done all the time, so don't think twice about it.

To enhance your well-manicured nails, a spot of clear nail polish or varnish will make them look even cleaner

Men's Skin Regimen, Cleansing, and Cosmetics

Cleansing your face with an exfoliant gets rid of dead skin particles and leaves your face feeling smoother and looking great. It can also help prevent black heads, acne, and ingrown hairs. The apricot scrub shown below doesn't cost a lot and works nicely to clean skin and minimize pores.

Anti-aging creams work just as well on men as they do on women, but they can leave your face with an unmasculine-looking shine. If you use these creams, you might also purchase a couple of cosmetics to take the shine from your face: a concealer and/or a light foundation powder or cream. While you're at it, you might choose one with sunscreen in it to protect your skin from sun damage.

Cosmetics should be carefully chosen. Yes, there are many popular lines of cosmetics designed for men, although in reality there is no reason for a man to wear lipstick, eye shadow, blusher, or many of the other cosmetics available–but they can be used to enhance your best facial features, if you want. The best way to go about applying cosmetics is to seek out an expert to show you how. If applied correctly, cosmetics can enhance your appearance, but applied incorrectly, they can leave you with an effeminate look which might send the wrong signals

Teeth Whitening

No matter how often you clean your teeth, they can become stained from drinking tea, coffee, smoking, and eating certain foods. There are many different ways to whiten your teeth, but the cheapest option is to use a whitening toothpaste: although it might take a little longer than other methods, it will give you a brighter smile in two to three weeks

Fresh Breath

Having whiter teeth doesn't always mean that you have fresh breath, and although regular brushing does help, investing in a good mouthwash is essential. Mouthwash gets to parts of the mouth that brushing can't reach, leaving your breath fresher and your mouth cleaner.

Hair Care for Men

Regardless of your hair type, it is important to use a shampoo that is gentle on your hair. Ingredients such as vitamin E are great for naturally strengthening and conditioning the hair follicles. Don't be fooled by super fragrant shampoos, either. Be sure to read the labels, as these types of products can contain artificial ingredients that don't do much for your hair.

Hot oil treatments also leave your hair with a great natural-looking shine.

Men's Clothing

No matter if you are going out to a formal or casual event, ensure that your clothes are well laundered, at least. Cleanliness is next to godliness after all, and if you have worked on all of the other care tips above, you could spoil it all by having poorly washed or pressed clothes. And don't forget to the shoes, which should be well cared for and polished.
