The subject is not very glamorous but some topics, although taboo, need to be addressed.
If we do not always find in the rules of the art every morning the necessary motivation to carry out a care routine, there are nevertheless some elements that should not be avoided.
Here are 7 fatal problems and how to fix them:
1- The bad smell under the armpits
The problem: Gone are the days when the alpha male showed off his manhood through his «raw nature» body odor. Your olfactory imprint should only be defined by your perfume: the one you bought or were offered, and that corresponds to your personality.
The solution: opt for impeccable hygiene and a good quality deodorant. Do not hesitate to try several until you find the one that seems most effective. Avoid the presence of aluminum that suffocates your skin. Finally, try shaving your armpits so sweat doesn’t collect in your hair.
The rule to follow : never forget that perspiration is a normal phenomenon, due to the presence of apocrine sweat glands. Actually, it is the bacteria present on the surface of the skin that are responsible for the smell!
2- Bushy eyebrows
The problem: If some men don’t see anything wrong with it, the eyes of others should alert them. How to know if it is affected? How can I tell you… if your two eyebrows tend to come together: it’s a sign! Seriously, don’t worry about it… Sometimes it’s very simple. All you need are tweezers and a good pair of scissors.
The fix: Brush your brows with your fingers (or an old toothbrush) following the direction of the bristles. Then get some tweezers to manually remove every hair that grows visibly in your natural brow line. Use scissors to cut off any lengths that won’t stay in place. Brush again until you get an honorable result.
The rule to follow : For specific cases (need to lose weight, very bushy eyebrows, fear of ruining your look, etc.), you can consult a barber or go to a beauty salon!
3- Hair protruding from the nostrils or ears
The problem: It’s more or less the same danger as eyebrows. Unsightly hair has no place when it sticks out of your ears or nose.
The solution: The only alternative to this problem is the use of a special nose and ear trimmer, called Nose-trimmer in English. They are quite light and easy to transport. The narrow nozzle is equipped with fine rotating blades and allows access to all relevant areas. It usually works with batteries.
The rule to follow : To avoid any risk of cutting, choose a good quality product, such as a Philips hair clipper, waterproof, safe and with stainless steel blades.
4- Pimples on the face
The problem: If you suffer from acne, our first advice is to make an appointment with a dermatologist. As part of a balanced diet and outside of the teenage period, re-emergence of pimples can be easily treated.
The solution: If you think a cosmetic treatment can help you, you should try the Acne Spot Repair treatment from the American brand Menscience. It is a localized dermatological treatment to be used directly on pimples.
The rule to follow : There is no need to grind or pierce the pimples. This is useless and will likely cause acne «scars» that will mark your face for years.
5- Ingrown hairs
The problem: our hair system tends to have some quirks when it breaks down. An ingrown hair is a hair that grows but… under the skin! In other words, it does not manage to cross the barrier of the epidermis, like its congeners. This may be due to a poorly executed shave. The result: redness and painful pimples, even an abscess.
The solution: Exfoliate before shaving and use a specific aftershave treatment. If you are, despite yourself, a fan of ingrown hairs, Anthony New-York ad hoc care, based on glycolic and salicylic acid, is suitable for men who shave their beards.
The rule to follow : Anticipate. And avoid removing the offending hair with tweezers (risk of scarring). Disinfect with an anti-inflammatory until the hair dies on its own.
