Skin Care 102

We have all heard the saying, “you are a dirty boy,” however, researchers have proven it. According to Dr. Gloria G. Bramer, a Georgia-based licensed clinical sexologist says having sex balances your hormones out, giving you clearer skin.  She also states that an active sex life, keeps your weight down, staves off depression and gives you a better outlook on life. I know that goes a long way towards unleashing the dapper man inside you, as well as how you feel about yourself, but it is more than just skin deep.  It actually, starts with your skin..

Men, by nature have larger pores, which leaves you open to more dirt. It does not matter what is your skin type, you are dirty boy and it is time to learn to keep it all nice and tidy. But first, you must understand your skin type.  There are three kinds, combination, oil or dry.  Each is self explanatory, but a combination skin type have dry skin on the cheeks and chin, while the nose and forehead may be oily. Before you put anything on your face, find out about your skin type so you can understand your skin’s needs.  I know.  I know.  It’s sounds girlyfied and wussicated, but you wouldn’t put the wrong transmission fluid into your car would you? Or put a cheap oil brand in a high mileage car? The same can be said for your skin.

One of the most essential parts of skin care is the exfoliation process.  That is just a fancy word for sloughing off the dead cells to make room for newer cells. Newer cells are younger cells, ergo, you will look younger. Feeling younger is really up to you, because your skin tells a great real about how you live your life.

Your skin is almost like an angry ex. She will tell all of your nasty habits.  If you smoke, drink too much, sleep too little, over eat, bad diet, late nights and fail to exercise, that heifer will spill the beans.  Everything from the dark circles under your eyes, to dull or greasy skin, even that unseemly ashen hue from those Newports you love so much, will tell how well you are taking care of yourself. A failure to exercise creates loose skin and flaccid muscles, which will cause your skin to sag.

Exercise increases capillary functions.  This simple step increases oxygen which increases cell growth, which makes you look healthier and younger. However, in order to maintain being the dapper man, one must eat right. Eating right is also very important, as what you eat will eventually show off on your skin too. Keep vitamins such as C and E in your diet regimen. Drink at least 2 liters of water throughout the day. This will flush out the toxins and keep the skin cool. Vitamin C, E, B and zinc are important components of healthy skin. Make sure that you include these in your daily diet.

Everything in moderation. Too much of anything is never a good idea. Stay away from excessive alcohol, smoking, fatigue and stress. Not only can these factors lead to premature aging; they also decrease facial circulation making you look older.
