Anti-aging creams work just as well on men as they do on women but they can leave your face with an unmasculine shine if you use these creams you should also purchase a couple of cosmetics to take the shine from your face a concealer and or a light foundation powder or cream.

 

Skin Cleansing
Cleaning your face with an apricot scrub gets rid of dead skin particles and leaves your facial skin feeling smoother and looking great it can also help prevent black heads and white heads.

 

Cosmetics

If applied correctly Cosmetics can enhance your appearance but applied incorrectly they can leave you with an effeminate appearance which sends out the wrong signals.

Teeth Whitening
No matter how often you clean your teeth the can become stained from drinking tea, coffee, smoking and from eating different foods there are many different ways to whiten your teeth but the cheapest option is to use a whitening toothpaste although this might take a little longer than other methods to work they will give you a brighter smile in two to three weeks.

Fresh Breath
Having whiter teeth doesn't always mean that you have fresh breath, and although regular brushing does help investing in a good mouth wash is essential, mouthwash gets to parts of the mouth that brushing can't reach leaving your breath fresher and your mouth cleaner.

Hair Care
Regardless of your hair type, it is important to use a shampoo that is gentle on your hair. Ingredients such as vitamin E are great for naturally strengthening and conditioning the hair follicles. Don't be fooled by super fragrant shampoos, either. Be sure to read the labels, as these types of products can contain artificial ingredients that don't do much for your hair.
Hot oil treatments also leave your hair with a great natural looking shine.
Facial Care

Your daily facial routine must include:

1          Washing your face when you get home

2.         You can use a mild soap or even milk for this purpose

3.         Use copious amounts of moisturizer daily

4.         (don't forget to also moisturize your hands and neck, as these are the first to go with age)

5.         Consider sleeping on your back or on a satin pillow to avoid getting wrinkles

6.         Water is your skin's (and male super model's!) best friend - drink copious amounts

7.         By the same token, the sun is it's worst enemy - try to avoid exposing your face to too much sunlight, especially in the summer - always go out wearing a day cream with the highest spf number you can find

Of course the problems we encounter with this morning ritual are that shaving every single day can cause reactions in the skin ranging from razor rashes and burns to dry, flaky skin. If you are suffering from any of these skin conditions, take a look at these 10 shaving tips -- one or more may correct your problem.

1. It's best to avoid shaving the very first thing in the morning. If possible, let your skin wake up a while. This allows the "puffiness" you encounter from fluids collecting in your skin during the night to recede, thus allowing you to get a closer shave when you do begin the task.

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. 

3. Stubble should be wetted with warm or hot water before shaving. This swells the hair shaft allowing the blade to cut the hair, not your skin.

4. 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.

5. Use a sharp blade. A dull blade is responsible for many shaving cuts as it drags over your face and catches your skin along with the hairs of your beard.

6. Rinse the blade often in hot water when shaving and use slow short strokes. Take your time.

7. Shaving with grain means shaving in the direction of how the hair grows on your face. It is always best to shave this way. Shaving against the grain can cause redness, rashes, razor burn and ingrown hairs, which are all painful.

8. After shaving, apply an oil-free moisturizer to soothe and protect the face. If you prefer an after-shave, check the label for alcohol. Dryness and stinging sensations are by-products of most after-shave products whose primary ingredient is alcohol. It may feel good at the time, but alcohol based after-shaves are actually irritating to many complexions.

9. Be wary of mentholated shaving products. Although the "cool" sensation feels good on the face, menthol, like alcohol, can be irritating to the skin.

10. A lot of foam or lather is not needed. Many grocery and drug store shave creams contain skin irritants such as Sodium Laurel Sulfate, which are formulated to "foam up" the product. However, these irritants may be the cause of your skin problem.
