Body Basics

While many men have found the answer to their skin care needs by visiting the salon regularly, others find the long term efforts more healthy and beneficial and want to do away with the chance of ever again finding themselves glancing worriedly at their face, hands, shoulder and neck. This intensifying need to look good and feel great is what lays the foundation for body basics in skincare for men and protecting it becomes top priority-in league with daily showering and shampooing.

  • Since men have close to fifteen percent oilier skin than women, it is necessary for them to cleanse, tone and moisturize regularly to rid themselves of dirt; grime and environmental pollutants that can clog the skin and make it appear dull.
  • Sun protection through sensible, breathable clothing, sunglasses and use of an adequate SPF providing sunscreen is a very vital part of skincare for men and helps them look young and fresh. Sunscreen also provides a barrier to the harsh rays of the sun that can damage and cause wrinkles on facial skin and prolonged sun exposure can lead to skin cancer.
  • Men with oily skin need to opt for a soap-free cleanser that will not irritate the skin into further eruptions and gently clean out the surface of the skin. This should be followed by using an alcohol-free toner that will rejuvenate and cool the skin without disturbing the ph balance.
  • Since men have considerably rougher skin due to endless shaving and razor use, exfoliation is a must in their skin care regime, especially in warmer weather when revealing more skin. Skin care for men include products like exfoliating scrubs, sea sponges and loofahs that are very effective for doing away with extra rough skin on the elbows, knees and heels. However, the use of the same is not recommended for the face as scrubs can produce micro tears in the skin that can lead to uneven pigmentation upon sun exposure.
  • An ideal approach to skincare for men would include the use of a cleanser and/or moisturizer with an alpha-hydroxy acid, such as glycolic acid or lactic acid, which also exfoliate to and improve the skin’s tone and texture.
  • A simple rule of thumb for most skin types of men would include a routine that follows Cleanse, Shave, Tone with Aftershave and moisturizer. For Oily skin types, the moisturizer can be given a miss. Those with heavy beards are advised to Cleanse, pre-shave, shave, tone, apply after shave and then moisturize and evening routine would be to cleanse and tone.

  • Fashion Dictums

    > The Human Shape is not necessarily the guideline for the silhouettes, nor is symmetry.
    > Add your own style punch to an ensemble with some kookie accessories and sharp color accents that add energy to your winter wardrobe
    >Old is new with a few exaggerations, some deconstructions, a few trims and a lot of irreverence.
    > Never lose sight of your roots. It's where your original style emanates from.
    > Mix up masculine and feminine detailing for maximum impact.

  • Lips Tips

    Lip care should be taken even in summer since lip problems are manifested not only in winter season, but also in summer. It is because lips get dried up soon due to the heat in summer.
    * Take half cup rose petals and make a paste of it by mixing with milk. Apply this paste to lips regularly. Natural ingredients present in it will keep the lips smooth always.
    * To a spoon of butter, add turmeric and paste in at night time. Change can be seen on regular usage.
    * Lips turn black due to heat in summer. Take Saffron Kesar and mix it with curd. Apply this curd to lips daily two or three times a day. Lips get good color.
    * Dried lips should be applied with almond and coconut oil mixed in same quantities. Lips will be moist for more time by this.
    * Wash the lips with tooth brush weekly once. Dead cells at that place will be removed by this.

  • Nail Layering

    Have you ever tried layering different shades of nail polish?
    This works best if you start with a distinct color as a base, for example, lush red, dark blue or purple.
    When the base layer is dry, add a transparent, brighter color. This will make it last longer and give you an unique nail hue.

  • MAKE-UP Moves – The 60s Retro Looks

    Eyes: Use your eyeliner well, either in black or the many colors available in the market.

    Lips: Gloss for the day and cream or velvety finish for the night.

    Hair: Keep the hair simple with a hint of the 60s. More chic and modern. Use a wide headband with your hair pulled back into a pony or bun.

  • Try Moccasins

    Girls are beautiful and they naturally want to enhance their looks. Shoes are a few of their best accessories. Some of them are so addicted to shoes that they almost crave all available designs. If you are looking for simple shoes for casual uses, please try moccasins. These are good shoes to wear with a pair of trousers.
    You can even buy a good shoe pair to complement your costume. Unlike adult women, girls can wear moccasins with a skirt or a dress. Girls find it easy to enhance their appearances than big women do. The mature ladies would somewhat look odd if they team up moccasins with dresses or skirts.
