Taking care of your body is essential to living a long, healthy life. While there are many different products available on the market, not all are equal when it comes to quality. It can take quite a bit of time and money to try out all of your options. For this reason, many people rely on reviews and recommendations from people they know and trust. Additionally, there has been a recent push toward using all natural products. New research says that all the ingredients and chemicals used in traditional products might not be safe and/or healthy. Natural ingredients are healthy and are often just as effective if not more so than their chemical counterparts. Using natural skin care products is a great way to continue your daily routine in the healthiest way possible.
There are many different natural facial products available for daily and weekly care. While everyone’s daily facial routine differs, most people use cleansers and moisturizers. Some also use products such as facial toners. For those who are aging or have specific skin conditions, there are advanced facial care products available. This includes products for rosacea care and aging (ex. glow serum and eye serum). Additionally, natural face masks can be used weekly to help your skin.
Body Care Products
In addition to caring for your face, it is also important to use natural products on the rest of your body. Similar to your facial care routine, there are natural body washes, soaps, and lotions that can be used daily or as needed. If you enjoy occasionally pampering yourself, you can invest in mineral bath salts, natural soup pouches, or wooden pumice brushes. And finally, if you suffer from sore muscles, there are muscle rubs that you can use to help relieve pain.
While these natural products sound great in theory, you might be wondering what they are made of. What kind of ingredients can produce results and be good for your health? There are many different products used including oils, fruits, nuts, and other plants. Coconut oil, sandalwood oil, jojoba oil, and lavender oil are all natural products that can do everything from tightening skin and reducing wrinkles to enhancing circulation and even treating skin conditions such as eczema. Acai berry and pomegranate are fruits that have healing properties. Other commonly used ingredients in natural skin care products include Shea butter, Aloe Vera, Bentonite clay, and rooibos tea.

Barber shops in Miami are declining in popularity. But why? More than ever, men are choosing unisex salons over barbershops, opting for bad haircuts and the strong scent of chemicals over the classic men’s barbershop.

The old maxim “you get what you pay for” is just as relevant today as it ever has been. Many people are interested or involved in a job or hobby that requires the regular use of specialized equipment or tools. Thanks to the advent of “Big Box Stores” it is possible to get just about anything you could want or need without looking too hard for it. But what happens when a person becomes seriously involved in this profession or hobby?
There are typically two paths open to them. First, they can continue to purchase consumer grade goods, stay satisfied with the quality, and simply replace them when worn out. The second option is to find a higher level of retailer, a specialty shop that carries the very best in equipment or tools, a place with brands that only committed devotees of a given craft will recognize. An excellent example of this is the shaving shop. Read the rest of this entry »

Buying razors can sometimes be difficult. There are so many different options to pick from when it comes to razors. Safety razors are a razor with a protective device between the blade and the skin. The purpose of the device is to help with injury free shaving. Razors used to be made of carbon steel, thus rusting unless properly dried after being used. Now most razors are made of quality, stainless steel to prevent rusting.
Disposable Blade or Disposable Razor
There are different types of razors you can buy. You can get a razor with the blade cartridge which is disposable. Disposable blade razors can be nice for use at home or as a more permanent razor.

There is something masculine and satisfying about knowing how to take care of a razor blade; knowing how to hone and strop a very fine blade to a very sharp edge that can cut a piece of paper is something that a man can take pride in. Sharp blades and power tools are typically a man’s pride and joy, and knowing how to fix and care for them is also uplifting for a man’s self-esteem.
However, most men are taught when they are teens that shaving is done with a disposable safety razor and with shaving cream if today is going to be a special day while in the hot morning shower. Sadly, this deprives most teens (and men) of the gratifying knowledge of caring properly for a razor blade. Read the rest of this entry »
