What should be in every man’s routine for his skin care?

Skin, the largest organ of our body, made up of several components, including water, protein, lipids and different minerals and chemicals. Skin is ever changing, for better or worse. Your skin will regenerate itself about every 27 days. Proper care and treatment is essential to maintaining the health of this crucial organ.

The demands of your skin occur daily. Each day make certain to provide your skin with

  • Plenty of water.
  • Balance nutrition – develop nutrition strategies.
  • Toning – after you cleanse with your choice of cleansers, make sure to use a nourishing toner to remove fine traces of oil, dirt and old skin cells you may have missed when cleansing.
  • Moisturizer – this is a necessary step even for those who have oily skin.
  • Sun-Block every morning.

Pay close attention to all parts of your skin. Familiarize yourself with it, so you’ll notice any changes that might occur and require further attention.

The tie that makes any suit look good?

So many men do the tie wrong. Today, both bow ties and neckties are becoming more popular. “There are few enough excuses for a man to wear colored silk around his neck without fear of ostracism. Take advantage of it.” -Permanent Style
