Be Smooth: Basic Skin Care for the Urban Gentleman


 

For some reason somebody created the myth that men don't need to do worry about skincare… "Lever 3000 and Suave is all I need" are words that have been echoed by many- and I must say, "It's sad, oh-so sad". A man doesn't need 20 cremes to take care of his skin, but please guys you can do better than Lever, Suave, and Old Spice.

First off everyone has a different type of skin, some of you may have really dry skin while others may have really oily, sensitive, normal, or problem skin- it's important to realize what type you have. Once you realize it you can buy products that are best for your type of skin.

There are a few key products that most men should use and own:

1. Palmers Products: Shea, Cocoa, or Olive

The realness of it all is that Shea Butter, Coca Butter, and Olive Oil are GREAT for the skin of people of color. If you want smooth, bump-free, stretch mark free (yes men get stretch marks too, especially if you work out) then it's all about these products. Palmers has the best range of products from oils to lotions to cremes to soaps they have it all. And the price of their products are great! Where to buy: Walmart, Target, Walgreens (most drug stores), and online.


Try this:

After washing your body in the shower, rub some Palmers Coca butter oil on from neck to toe then rinse it off. And once you step out the shower dab yourself dry instead of harshly rubbing the towel against your body… I promise you'll see a difference within a week or so.

2. Jack Black Products

They have such a comprehensive range of products that fits all skin types and complexions. There are many men who absolutely swear by Jack Black (I've met a few).
Where to buy: Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, Sephora, and online.


Try this:

After washing your hands put on some Jack Black Hand Healer. It's the perfect product for men who work out alot and have rough hands from lifting weights, it's also great for guys who always work outdoors or have jobs that leave their hands rough and dry. I suggest carrying some in your car and having one at home.

3. The Art of Shaving
Oh how I love the name… it just sounds like it's good, huh. Like Jack Black, The Art of Shaving carries products that are great for all skin types. But the difference is that this brand specializes in products for shaving, every gentleman should own atleast one Art of Shaving product.
Where to buy: The Art of Shaving Store, Nordstrom, online.

Try this:
Many men, especially men of color, tend to get ingrown hairs and lots of bumps when shaving.
If you run into this issue then dab some Ingrown Hair Night Cream before going to bed.

Other Good Products:
4. Lab Series
5. MenScience

Men’s Grooming: Diddy & Jigga Man Get Bikini Waxes

 |  Grooming, Hair, Skin  |  13 Comments
Mr. Shawn Carter likes it bare down there

“Bald is Beautiful” – Jay-Z

When I first learned of Jay-Z and Diddy waxing there private areas, I thought it was pretty funny. I thought to myself “Okay Diddy- I can definitely see that, but Jay-Z iounno that’s a little much”. But at the end of the day I do know guys that shave in places that are typically only shaved by women and swimmers. I can totally see why men would do it- cuz no chick wants her man to look like Chewbacca down there, lol, but waxing??? Waxing just seems like it would be too painful for men. . . I mean c’mon putting hot wax down there ripping off the hair- pretty graphic picture, huh? I can just feel pain. . . I mean most women can’t even do it because of how painful it is.


Remember that scene from The 40-Year-Old Virgin? When Steve Carell’s character got his chest-waxed? Soooo painful! I just can’t see why a man would wanna go through that, but I guess Beyonce and Cassie prefer their men hairless. . .

Let’s be real no one’s surprised that Diddy gets bikini waxes

Check out this excerpt I found from one site:

*Men Brazilian Waxing is a hair removal on everything in your bikini, two sides, genital, testicles, gap between the butt and anus with wearing a paper thong. Leave you completely nice and clean, smooth and silky feeling. With a Brazilian wax, you’ll never have to worry about “escaping tendrils” again. A Brazilian wax is not something you should undertake at home; it’s definitely a professional procedure. You’ll never be able to reach all the spots and crevices a professional can, and really, wouldn’t you rather have somebody else making sure you’re perfect?

If you think you want to try to be baby’s bottom smooth you should try to choose products that won’t irritate your skin. I would recommend using whatever you see your mom and/or sister uses- if they have really good skin. There’s an Australian wax called Nad’s for Men Hair Removal Strips that is a favorite. You can find it on Amazon for the low.

Check out there website

So, let’s be real guys- do you shave down there? Would you wax down there? I have to know your thoughts on this interesting topic.
