Manly Monday – “5 Things” that aren’t scary

Skin care products aren’t scary. They say they’ll do various things from protecting your skin from the sun, to smoothing lines, soothing the skin and aiding irritation. Most of the time the products stay true to their word and we benefit from them. Guys, what’s scary about that? Are you scared your girlfriend will look at you differently if you add a few products to your cabinet? Nay, she will applaud it. Are you scared the other blokes are going to make fun of you for taking care of your skin? Joke’s on them, they’re the ones secretly crying to the mirror looking 50 when they’re 30, cursing misspent youth. So, now that we’ve got that settled, I’ve got 5 things for you that aren’t scary and that you should definitely add to your routines.



1. Blemish Treatments

Some blokes are lucky enough they don’t have to worry about this stuff. For others though, blemishes, oily skin and acne can be a consistent and reoccurring issue, and into adulthood, we wonder how this can be. Well you’re not alone, and a blemish treatment like the Intelligent Beauty Labs Clear Age Defying Blemish Treatment can be the answer to your problems. A treatment lotion such as this doesn’t just help calm and prevent acne, it also visibly reduces fine lines and wrinkles, so it’s a win-win.


2. Dry Shave Gel

Okay, so this product does sound ridiculous. How on earth are you supposed to dry shave your face? I’ve been using a dry shave gel for the past few weeks now and there’s no need to worry, as a product like Bold For Men Dry Shave Gel takes care of every step of the shaving process. This product acts as a 3-in-1 pre-shave gel, shaving gel, and after-shave for a soothing finish. Admittedly, I was tentative at first, but the glide and soothing nature of the gel makes you quickly forget any insecurities.


3. Masks

Let me assure you a mask is not a “women’s only” product. A mask is a great way to absorb excess oil and grime that can buildup on your face, giving you a fresh slate with soft and smooth skin. Anthony For Men (see, it’s for men!) Deep Pore Cleansing Clay may sound scary, but it’s a simple product to use at home just a few times a week. If you’re prone to oily skin or just want to keep your face clean, slap it on and leave it there for 10 minutes. Rinse off with warm water and be sure to use it twice a week for skin you didn’t think possible.


4. Scrubs

A scrub, much like a mask, is designed to create a smooth surface, free of lifeless skin cells and any unnecessary dirt and grime. A scrub however is best used prior to shaving, preparing a smooth and clean surface to allow for the closest possible shave. Hey Dude Scrub is the perfect addition to your grooming routine. It’s affordable, simple to use, and it prepares your skin for the blade.


5. Wrinkle Reducers

We’re all human beings, we all age, and we’d all prefer to stay in our prime. You want to be in your 20’s and look like you’re in your late 30’s, or a 40-something looking like a 30-year-old? There’s nothing to be embarrassed about, everything from stress, to a lack of sleep and poor eating habits can accelerate the aging process, so why not fight it now? But a wrinkle reducer, such as Billy Jealousy’s About Face Anti-Aging Serum, can promote a healthier and younger-looking mug, smoothing lines and helping to make sure you stay in your prime.

    Hallandale Beach is certainly a place where men go the extra mile to take care of themselves. There are some awesome products that you won’t find in regular stores, but only in high-end spas (or online if you are lucky) that really work the best in my opinion. I recently discovered RAZOR MD
    Rx Pre-Shave Oil 2.0 oz Skin Defense,which is an awesome natural aftershave lotion/moisturizer RAZOR MD
    Rx Shave Cream, which is an awesome natural dray shaving gel, In the department stores, Lab Series has some good products, but far from natural.
