Airport offering free spray tans to beach-seeking travelers

       
Friday, July 30th, 2010

Airport offering free spray tans to beach-seeking travelersUpon returning from a sunny getaway, many people revel in their post-vacation tans. However, some travelers desire a golden glow before they set foot on the sand.

According to the Daily Mail, a recent poll conducted by London’s Gatwick Airport found that 32 percent of people most dread baring pale skin on the beach, insisting they would rather reveal cellulite and bulging bellies. Additionally, more than half said that having a tan would boost their confidence on vacation.

In response to the findings, the news source reports that, for a limited time, Gatwick Airport will offer free spray tans to passengers flying to St. Tropez.

But you don’t have to go to Gatwick to get bronzed skin before a beach-side break. Instead, use a sunless tanner to help you achieve your desired pre-vacation glow.

Peter Thomas Roth Natural Looking Self-Tanner is a fragrance-free formula that is safe to use on both your body and face. Fake Bake offers a plethora of sunless tanners, including lotion, spray and mousse, and even offers a product formulated for men, Man Bronzing Gel.

However, before you hit the beach, remember to load up on sunblock with a high SPF – your skin may appear tan, but you still need protection from harmful UV rays!ADNFCR-3538-ID-19915622-ADNFCR

Experts tell Men’s Health how to best apply cologne

Experts tell Men's Health how to best apply cologneAccording to a survey conducted by Men’s Health magazine, 56 percent of women say that men should wear cologne every day. However, 99 percent of ladies polled agreed that men shouldn’t smell like fragrance from more than a foot away. So how do you strike the perfect balance when applying your signature scent?

“Apply cologne on the places where you can feel the beats of your heart,” Rochelle Bloom, president of the Fragrance Foundation, told the news source, as the throb adds impact to the scent. Before you leave for work, target areas like wrists, the sides of your neck and over your heart.

Not every product that you use must be scented, industry insider Mikel Cirkus added. In fact, using a cologne, aftershave, body wash and deodorant that all boast different fragrances may result in clashing scents. Instead, opt for items with the same smell. Giorgio Armani‘s fragrance line, Armani Code For Men, offers cologne, after shave balm and lotion, shower gel and a deodorant stick.

Finally, if you find your scent fading, apply one more spritz around 3 pm. “A quick splash midafternoon is a psychological pick-me-up and keeps you smelling wonderful,” Mary Ellen Lapsansky, executive director of the Fragrance Foundation, told the news provider.ADNFCR-3538-ID-19912171-ADNFCR

A closer shave may help beat the dreaded five o’clock shadow

A closer shave may help beat the dreaded five o'clock shadowWhile some men prefer scruff, others like the look of a clean-shaven face. Unfortunately for those who enjoy a stubble-free appearance, the seemingly inevitable five o’clock shadow has the potential to become his worst enemy.

Instead of looking for ways to slow beard growth, men may want to reconsider their morning routine. According to Men’s Health, many men don’t get a close enough shave, prompting facial hair to seem as if it is growing back too quickly.

“Preparation of the beard is the most important factor,” Dr Douglas Altchek, a professor of dermatology at Mount Sinai school of medicine, told the publication. To ensure the closest shave possible, men should shower first to soften up their skin, apply a preshave oil to create a slick surface and then coat their scruff with a lubricating shave gel.

Dermalogica produces formulas perfect for men who are looking to reduce the chance of a five o’clock shadow. The brand’s Close Shave Oil conditions facial hair while encouraging razor glide, and their Soothing Shave Cream lubricates skin to provide a close shave.

However, men may also want to replace their razor blades more often. “A razor loses 5 percent of its sharpness after every shave, so after five shaves, a quarter of the sharpness is gone,” Dr Altchek told the publication.ADNFCR-3538-ID-19895266-ADNFCR

You tried for a tan glow for prom but instead got stuck with a burnt chest? Use a spray on bronzer! You can find these at any nationwide drug store, and they come in a variety of shades. Buy a few to see which shade matches your skin tone by doing a patch test on your arm/leg.
Spray a small amount and rub into skin. Whichever shade looks most natural without looking orange is the shade you should be using. Hang on to the receipt and bring back the other spray on’s that weren’t used so you have the perfect color and money has been blessed!

Say Goodbye to Shaving Irritations

       
Friday, April 13th, 2007

Shaving can be a pain—literally. A lot of men have problems with skin irritation on their neck and face after shaving (folliculitis). Some irritations are so painful that men can only shave once every six days; this is the only way to keep the event of irritation at a minimum. This doesn’t usually leave enough time for the face to heal completely.

Folliculitus is a public problem but there are things that you can do to relieve the situation:

  • Start by trimming your facial hair with an electric razor before using a regular razor.
  • Exfoliate with a gentle pre-shave exfoliator.
  • Then, use a rich, lubricating shave cream that has silicone technology, to prevent further irritation.
  • When finished shaving put a warm, moist towel on your face followed by a cold one—this will help pores to close.
  • Alleviate burning by using ice cold aloe gel (refrigerate before using).

Tuesday, August 22nd, 2006

Who ever said that men don’t like to be pampered? Here’s a thought, when you’re searching for the perfect gift for the perfect man in your life you don’t have to walk into the sporting goods aisle. Men can enjoy things instead of a round of golf or NFL Sunday. Just as us ladies, a man will need to take care and upkeep his personal hygiene. A man is less likely to spend the time or the money buying indulgent beauty products that a woman would. And for this reason, male beauty products make phenomenal gifts.

Here are some great gift ideas for a special man: “A nice shaving kit with a sensitive lotion and aftershave, Indulgent body scrubs and cleansers, A magnificent facial cleanser, toner, and moisturizer, A total travel kit, A massage,A gift certificate to a great salon“.

Just because he may not be caught dead buying it for himself doesn’t mean that he won’t love that pampering! If you live with him and he doesn’t desire pampering gifts, try putting what you want him to smell like in the shower and guarantee he’ll use it, instead of using yours!
