I have enlisted the help of my good friend, the beauty guru, Kendra Marie Studdert, founder/dreamer of YOUTHskin/care© and YOUTHblog, to help the young gay and straight guy (because I know you secretly read my blog, and want me to be your Queer Eye for the Straight Guy), to highlight some items that every man should have on his drug store/Target/online shopping list. We kept in mind affordability...so MEN, there is no excuse to why you can't add this small routine that will protect and help your face in the long run and land you some amazing dates!
First things first, you need a great cleanser! Here are a few to try:
Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser
Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser; $9; www.cetaphil.com
|Clinique Face Soap; $12; www.clinique.com|
Mario Badescu Seaweed Cleanser
Mario Badescu Seaweed Cleanser; $12; www.mariobadescu.com
Malin & Goetz Grapefruit Cleanser
|Malin & Goetz Grapefruit Face Cleanser; $30; www.malinandgoetz.com|
You now have the cleansing part down, all that is necessary is a good moisturizer. I am not talking about your mom's rose scented creams. These help protect your face, something that is exposed daily to all the harsh elements.
Mario Badescu After Shave Moisturizer
Mario Badescu After Shave Moisturizer; $15; www.mariobadescu.com
Clinique M Lotion
|Clinique M Lotion; $21; www.clinique.com|
Other brands to take a look at are Anthony Logistics, Jack Black (my personal favorite which I live by, oh and this isn't the actor), and Lab Series. If you are on a budget but don't want to cut out quality then check out Cetaphil's product line...it is the best!
Once you have added this routine to your every day lifestyle, you can add the rest of your body. Also recommended is YOUTHskin/care body exfoliator.
|Youthskin/care Sugar/Jojoba Oil Body Scrub; $35; www.youthskincare.com/store|
Take the time, read about each product, find out what you need the most, and try it out! All that is left is going out now and getting those dates...hey you have to do some work! Now get to!
