How necessary is mere look to a man? Well, a man can't misinform himself - very important. A dermatologist takes a close look at the Mens products for long hair and processes designed to make a man nice to be close to to; and spell out the A-B-Cs of good grooming.

Is your bathroom mirror a location you method with trepidation every morning for fear of the story it should inform? Namely, that your appearance could do with a little bit of sprucing up?

Well, stop worrying that pimple, and give up reflecting on that bald pate. In the event you really need to turn over a new look (and girls do not have the monopoly on good looks!) there's nothing to cease you.

Let's get right down to the nitty-gritty:


In dusty cities and different polluted areas, it's a good habit to clean your hair every day. "Each day washing doesn't ruin the hair," says Dermatologist. "In truth it is hygienic and makes the head less susceptible to infection."

Many men shy away from shampoos believing them to be solely a girl's beauty aid. However, basically, shampoo is for hair and hair has no gender. Shampoos produce lather better than soap and, because the surface pressure is less, it makes it simpler to clean the hair.

Conditioners break the disulphide bonds of the hair, thus making the hair more handleable and simpler to groom. At this time, shampoos are available with constructed-in conditioners, making them a handy cosmetic aid.

No woman likes a man with a dandruff problem. Dandruff is one of the nice put-offs. However, opposite to fashionable thinking, "dandruff is just not a illness," informs Dermatologist. "It's an accentuated physiological problem. That is, the skin is shed frequently below normal circumstances and when the shedding is excessive it's called dandruff." Most so-called anti-dandruff shampoos available in the market only wash away the dead cells from the scalp. The exception is selenium sulphide, an ingredient that reduces the turnover or formation of cells, thus retarding, although not curing the problem. The best advice you may follow is to keep the scalp clean by day by day washing.

A balding head - every man's Achilles heel! Quite a few 'losers' have turned to minoxidil as a hair restorer. While regular application of minoxidil does sprout high quality hair on bald areas of the sclp, as soon as application is ceased, the hair begins to fall off again. Even more essential, minoxidil affects the heart, and cardiac problems. Subsequently it should be used only under a doctor's supervision.

Go for a haircut to your neighbourhood saloon and in most cases you may be given a head massage as a perk (generally you pay further). Certainly, the massaging motion does perk up blood circulation, but it is mistakenly assumed (and assured by hair-dressers) to additionally improve hair growth. "That is a fable," says Dermatologist, "for the expansion and life of your hair are determined by your particular person genetic pattern." So, benefit from the stress-free effects of the massage by all means, however don't count on miracles to sprout above your hairline.


Now for blood and tears, otherwise often called shaving. Your grandfather probably used cleaning soap, but right now it's more fashionable to use shaving creams. There are the traditional ones which have to be lathered on with a brush, and there's also the spray variety which spreads foam at the press of a button. Essentially, nevertheless, "soap and water would do as well," argues Dermatologist. Like shaving creams, they simply fulfil the essential requirement of softening the hair for a greater shave. The only advantage that a shaving cream has over soap is that it produces a thicker lather which doesn't drip or dry as shortly a s cleaning soap does.

Use a pointy-edged blade while shaving. A boring-edged blade can cause irritation because of the repeated friction on the skin. Stroke with the grain and wash the razor clean after a shave - a grimy razor can cause skin infections. "Fungus on the shaving areas of a person's face can nearly at all times be traced back to an unclean razor," says Dermatologist.

After-shaves are massive business. They're advertised as a lifestyle. But he important ingredient in all of them is a high focus of ethyl alcohol. The only variations between one and another lie in the share of ethyl alcohol and within the additives used (cologne, lime, musk, etc.) After-shaves are advisable because the ethyl alcohol performs two functions. It's anti-bacterial, meaning it destroys germs and bacteria on the skin's surface. Secondly it's an astringent, which implies that when you nick your self (relatively a common prevalence throughout shaving), the after-shave will cause coagulation of serum within the minimize areas. This seals off the wound, making it impervious to exterior infection. Finally, an aftershave and while you scent good, you're feeling good, too.

Coming to skin care, more and more men are getting in for facials and associated treatments these days. They steam, massage and even bleach their faces at magnificence salons. Steaming improves blood circulation because of the warmth, however more vital it helps to soften plugs (white and black heads), making them simpler to remove. Please note, bleaching cannot change skin colouring because pigmentation goes much deeper. Bleaches only lighten the melanin in the dead layer of the skin which sloughs off within 7-14 days when a new layer forms.

A facial massage, finished by expert palms, helps to stimulate and tone those muscle tissues that aren't exercised in each day living. But while the massaging action may be helpful, the oils and creams used as lubricants can kind residues on the skin surface and block pores. "I've had many cases when the oils used turn out to be comedogenic (inflicting blackheads) and acneigenic (causing acne) after facials." That's the reason, if the skin reacts adversely to a massage, it's best avoided.
