Skin Care for Men with Sensitive skin.

Men are less likely to spend a lot of time on skin care. But it’s especially important for men with sensitive skin to maintain a daily regimen that doesn’t harm the health of their complexion.

Sensitive skin is any complexion that’s “prone to irritation” and manifests differently in every individual. Those with sensitive skin may experience redness, dryness, itchiness and/or burning brought on by triggers such as weather (sun, wind and extreme temperatures), stress, food, household products or skin care ingredients. Others may experience sensitivity due to a diagnosable skin care condition such as eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, acne or dermatitis.

Regardless of what’s triggering sensitive skin, it’s important for men to develop an appropriate skin care regimen that nurtures, protects and improves their complexions without causing irritation.


Scalp massage for stress relief and hair restoration.

Benefits of a Head Massage:
Apart from relaxation and stress reduction, there are several other benefits that can be enjoyed, by massaging the muscles of the head. In fact, most women visit their hair specialists on a regular basis just try a scalp massage for hair growth enhancement. However, to maximise the effectiveness of the various head and scalp massage techniques, it is important to make sure that you give yourself a scalp massage, using warm oil, at least once a week, on a long term basis.
Given below are some of the benefits that have been associated with massing the muscles on the head on a regular basis:
  • A head massage is considered to be a very effective stress reliever. The head massage helps the person relax the muscles of the head, shoulders, neck and even back.
  • A head massage is also known to relieve both chronic and acute headache.
  • A head massage is considered to rejuvenate the brain cells.
  • A head massage is very instrumental for achieving a sound sleep.

A Question on Acne.

I have had acne now for a long time, it has improved. When can I stop using acne-fighting products? Can I discontinue use once my acne improves, or will I have to use these treatments forever?

Answer: One big mistake people make is stopping acne treatment once skin clears. After achieving that coveted goal of clear skin, some people attribute this to a change in the skin itself – but it’s possible that you’ve just discovered the right treatment for your skin. Rather than quit treatment prematurely, keep using what works as part of your daily skincare routine to maintain clear skin. If it’s been several months or years since you’ve seen breakouts, or if the products become too drying, it’s possible that your skin type is changing; in this case, look into different products.

Male hair loss

How hair grows-Here’s a simple way to understand the hair growth cycle: Hair doesn’t grow like grass. If it did, you would expect every hair to be growing at the same rate on your scalp. After a period of time, all the hairs would end their life span together and fall out simultaneously. This would leave you totally bald until a new crop began to grow.

Instead, the hair growth cycle prevents this all-or-nothing scenario, because every hair grows at a different rate on your scalp. At any one time, about 90 % of the hairs are in a growing phase, a process that can take from two to six years, according to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD).

As such, 10 % of the hair rests for several months until it’s ready to shed, writes AAD. Once a hair falls out, the body immediately gets busy growing a new hair to replace it. Per day, you can lose up to 100 hairs, according to AAD.


Spa treats - The benefits for men

For years, women have tapped into luxury that seemed off-limits to men. Manicures, pedicures, facials — it was all pretty in pink with rarely a man in sight.These days spas appeal to men from all walks of life. A day at the spa brings many rewards to men’s busy lives, such as:
  • Stress relief: A relaxing atmosphere helps you let go of work and other stressors. If you’re athletic, deep-muscle massages are especially soothing.
  • Skin care: Facials and nail treatments upgrade tired, neglected skin and show people that you care about your appearance.
  • Body overhaul: Feeling better may inspire you to tackle weight or other body issues, which has the bonus of boosting your self-confidence.
  • Massages, which can include the neck and face as well as the back.

Oil pulling.

Sesame seed oil or olive oil make an excellent mouth wash to improve gum health plus helps whiten teeth. The practice is called "oil pulling." This refers to the ancient ayurvedic practice of swishing oil in your mouth as a mouthwash. You put a teaspoon of organic olive or sesame, in your mouth and swish it around. The ideal time is to do this for 10 minutes once a day. Then you spit out the oil in your bin rather than down the sink and wash your teeth as normal.
