Your Questions About Skin Care Advice For Men

Donald asks…

I Feel That…?

I feel that most men (sexual orientation doesn’t matter) ARE interested in skin care (beyond shaving, I’m talking self-tan lotions, eye creams, exfoliators, etc.) and a lot of men are looking for tips and advice on products they should use (we can see that from the ton of questions guys ask on here).

What I’ve seen is a desire for skin care advice and also a reassurance of “masculinity” from others. I think creating a new brand of products developed to address men‘s grooming needs that not only had point-of-sale service for advice and demonstrations, but also a masculine image and packaging (not overdone though) would help men feel better about skin care and would drive the men‘s industry into billions & beyond!

What do you think? Am I “right on the mark”?
ebay and amazon charge a commission where they take a % out of seller’s earnings. I HATE that! lol
oops! wrong add-on

I agree with you. Mary Kay and Avon are coming out with a line of products for men.

Chris asks…

How can I make more guy friends *no hate please, thank you =)*?

I’m a gay guy and I want to make more guy friends, gay or straight. I was having a conversation with my dad in the car when we were picking up my mom from work. He asked me about my classes for my spring semester, I’m in college, and I told him that I was pretty happy with my classes because I have a few friends in my classes. My dad asked me who they were, and I told him it their names. This is funny part, my dad asked me if some of my classes were for girls haha! My dad doesn’t really know English that well, so I told him that I’m in art school and that I that they don’t make separate a classes for males and females haha! So that got me thinking of who my closest friends were and I came to realize that they were all girls! I don’t like using labels but I’ll do just to explain myself better. I’m not effeminate nor am I “butch” I consider myself in between, but I’m just a little bit more attached to my feminine side. I had a few straight guy friends in high school, but we lost contact. I want to make more guy friends but the thing is I can’t relate to them fully. The straight ones because they usually talk about sports, girls, and other stuff that I don’t really understand. Although my guy friends from high school would always come to me for girl advice and skin care for men. I guess I’d like that from a straight guy friend. For gay friends, I can’t find gay guys who aren’t completely effeminate where I’m from. They’re usually wearing tight fitting clothes, all stylish and what not, with “fierce” attitudes. Nothing against those type of gay guys, I just know I can’t relate to them. I’d like to make friends with gay guys who are laid back, artsy and can be fashionable but not over the top you know? It’s so frustrating haha! Any advice please? I’d highly appreciate it! Thank you =)

jennmill answers:

I have the exact same…. I wouldn’t call it a problem, just a situation i guess. Im gay, im still in high school, and ALL my friends are girls, every single one, and no im not one of those really gay, gay people, that are extremely feminine, i just cant relate to most strait guys, i don’t have a solution for your problem, but i thought id tell you that i am the same way..

Maria asks…

Skin care for females in their late 20’s?

I am a 29 yr. old female, and I am trying to get a regular skin regimen going on. Unfortunately, I know very little about this stuff. I don’t have wrinkles and don’t get out in the sun much. I am also brown skinned- Southeast Asian. I currently use neutragena bar soup (usually fragarance free), then a scrub- either St. Ives or Nivea for Men… I use the Nivea more cause it is gentler and I notice less dry skin thru out the day. I have very dry skin around my nose and cheeks so the scrubbing helps me clear it off. Oh, and then a Dove SPF 15 moisturizer. I have been thinking about going the Oil of Olay Regenerist route… but have no idea what to get! Does anyone have any suggestions or advice? Any other brands…?

jennmill answers:

I highly recommnd Arbonne International’s Not-So-Basic 5 step skin care line.

Five products for the face that cleanse, exfoliate, balance and moisturize (both day and night) in a 5-Step System for Face that simply and effectively meets basic skin care needs.

Arbonne’s Products Are:

• Never tested on animals: Substantiation and safety testing is performed at independent laboratories on voluntary human panels.

• Formulated without mineral oil: Occlusive oil can interfere with skin functions as well as advanced delivery systems.

Helen asks…

Advice For How To Attract Men?

Here is a line from the following study: “Aside from symmetry, males in Western cultures generally prefer females with a small jaw, a small nose, large eyes, and defined cheekbones.”

My life is fairly forfeit right now; I’m not pretty at all and I have none of the attractive features described.

Please, please advice me on surgical procedures and other methods of looking attractive. All my other qualities are thrown in the toilet if no one wants to look at me and dig deeper.

I am begging you. No one I like will give me time of day and make me feel like I’m on this planet to see love and happiness, but to only feel pain.

I beg of you for advice.
I’m scared that I’ll have to lower my standards when I comes to me. I’m on my way to an Ivy league law degree and I’m from a very lucky family.

I am just so terrified that my ‘peers’ will scoff at me. How can I use make-up or other skin tricks to help me look better. I think my attractiveness level is a low 6 or 5. How can I increase it.

I’m in the market for serious advice and have the financial means to do quite a bit in terms of make-up and skin care.
Feel free to be as critical an ‘mean’ as possible.

I’m a self-hating bitter girl–nothing can break me!!

Laura asks…

How to prevent razor burn for men?

My husbands hair grows every which way, which makes shaving a problem. He shaves up and then down and then side to side, in order to get all the hair. He’s tried everything. Electric razors dont work, heat the skin doesnt work, cooling the skin doesnt work. I work in skin care and I SHOULD know how to help him, but nothing seems to work. Any advice would help out a lot. Thanks

Please, please, believe me!

Shower shave!

Make it the last thing he does before he gets out of the shower. His beard will be it’s softest as will his skin…
Use a good safety razor (i have a gillette fusion) and a shave gel (not the can ones, but one in a tube). Most of the time i get “king of shaves” at the drug store, but the top designers make nice ones that i like to treat myself to also 😉
i suggest shaving twice a day until the razor burn dissipates,,, change blades often, i change every two to three weeks… He can shave against the grain this way for the closest shave possible also…
You really don’t need a mirror in the shower, you can feel your way through the shave and clean up your sideburns when out of the shower…

Good luck!
