Fabulous Fridays: Let's Not Forget About The Men

Self preservation and beautification isn't just for women anymore. Men's grooming is the fastest growing subject in the beauty business, annually raking in $14 billion dollars to the industry.

As men's grooming booms, more and more men are starting to pay attention to self preservation.

Lines like The Art of Shaving, Men's Science, and Jack Black are a few amazing lines that have all-natural products like aloe vera and all-natural exfoliants. They are great investments in maintaining smooth skin that all women adore.

Regardless of the product, the key element that most men need to pay attention to is a proper pre-shave treatment. Here are a few tips that all men can use when grooming.

Tip #1: The key enemies of the skin are unisex. Man or woman, try to stay away or atleast use in moderation alcohol, caffeine and cigarettes.

Tip #2: Use an exfoliate such as a facial cleanser or scrub to eradicate dead skin cells and open up the pores of the skin to prepare it for a close shave.

Tip #3: Thoroughly massage shave cream into stubble. A vitamin and Aloe Vera based shave cream will provide a close soothing shave and protect against razor rashes and burns.
