A Tip For the Man You Love

Here’s a tip on shaving for the man you love:

Use two different types or brands of shavers on alternate days.  For example, use a Fusion one day and a Mach 3 the next.  Each shaver has its own unique friction points on the skin, so using a different razor helps avoid irritation. Using two shavers also helps to prevent the bumps and cuts that tend to appear in the same spots on the face if they use the same shaver every day.

And some shaving cream recommendations:  Kielh’s, Cremo Cream Shave, and Clinique Shave Cream. Kielh’s also has an interesting shaving oil that some men like.

And here’s a tip for you women: surprise your man with a new shaver and some shave cream.  See what he uses, and buy him something different. Some men love to try to try new shavers and creams. Be forewarned, though, that others have their shaving ritual down and don’t want to change it all. But I think both types will appreciate the thought, because most men hate to shave.

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
