Some Useful Hair And Skin Tips For Men

Here's a hair and make-up guide exclusively for men. 
Vanity Secrets Hair: If you have long hair, pull it back and tuck it neatly behind the ears - tie a knot at the back to keep it from getting sweaty and sticky and falling all over your neck. 
Headgear: During the day, wear a casual or sports (cotton) cap or a hat - not just because headgear is a strong trend this summer, but also because it protects you from the sun. Place the cap / hat at an angle that flatters your face. 
To avoid accumulation of sweat underneath, ensure you take it off occasionally, allowing the scalp to stay dry as well as to breathe. Face and neck: Try and refrain from maintaining a shadow stubble or sporting any facial hair for that matter - this will keep you feeling less itchy and moist in that area. 
Underarms: Trim or remove hair to prevent excessive sweating. To smell fresh through the day and to avoid sweat patches on your T-shirts and shirts, use a long-lasting and alcohol-free deo stick. 
Elbows: Use an exfoliating scrub (once a week) to keep elbows looking clean and free of grime. Better still, when in the shower, use a loofah scrub (with some soap or shower gel on it) to remove dry and dead skin. 
Arms: Removing the hair on your arms doesn't just make them look wider, but also makes your skin feel lighter and softer. Vest: If you tend to sweat excessively on your back and chest, wear a light coloured cotton vest under your shirt to absorb the moisture and keep you dry. 
Hair Care Nourish: In summer, avoid using oil or heavy styling products on a daily basis. Having said that, ensure that you condition your hair with an application of a nourishing oil (Salon / Modicare - almond & vitamin E oil) no more than once a week. 
Condition: To wash daily, use a mild frequent use shampoo (Fruit of the Earth - arnica and tea tree shampoo) followed by a good conditioner (Fruit of the Earth - almond and aloe vera conditioner). The Styles Under 20:Wild & Rebellious Hair Length: Medium to long. 
Sides: Very short, graduating and blending into medium to long strands. Slim, narrow sideburns.

Sides: Flattened and pressed down. Thick but short sideburns. 
Top: Messy - lifted at the back, then styled unevenly in all directions. Over 25: Textured & Masculine Hair Length: Medium.
