Guess what gentlemen, it is sexy to look after yourself. And it is also sexy to not be afraid to show your confidence and to share the fact that you care about your skin, your body and your hair. As we age it is more important than ever to keep your body fit, your skin protected and youthful, and to keep your mind healthy and stress-free. This isn’t just about vanity either. This is about overall health and wellness. And trust me, from a woman’s perspective, it is sexy to keep looking after yourself as you age. It shows your partner that you are care enough about her/him to not let yourself go.
So here are some tips to help you look and feel young:
Moisturize each morning with a daycream that contains natural SPF such as from red raspberry seed oil as in our Youthful Kisses Daycream and apply sunscreen before you head out the door. Wear a hat too if working outdoors or performing sports activities like running, walking or golfing.
Wash your face and moisturize every night before bed. Even though unlike women you don’t wear makeup (generally speaking of course!), you still need to remove the dirt and oils you have clogging your pores. Men and women alike love the manly and unique, woodsy scent of our plant based serum enriched with centuries old skincare secrets.
Take time to do some exercise whether it be an intense gym workout, a hot yoga practice, playing a sport, or simply taking a walk around the block. Keeping our bodies mobile is more important as we age and we wake up feeling stiff and sore from lack of movement.
Moisturize your full body too with a lotion or body butter. Often times men neglect to keep their whole body protected and moisturized because of body hair and well, just feeling it isn’t a manly thing to do. There is nothing attractive about scaly dry skin on your elbows and knees guys. It is just not a pleasant thing to rub up against or to look at.
Oh and please tell us you aren’t still using that Old Spice anti-perspirant to keep you fresh? Don’t even get me started on the artificial scent because what I really want to get across is my point on the harmful aluminum in anti-perspirants. Trust us guys, our natural deodorant really does work throughout the gym, hot yoga, and a good sweaty run outdoors. Btw we won an award for our natural deodorant. You want to know what is really sexy gentlemen? Listening to your mate. That’s right. I’m not discounting the above suggestions for skincare, exercise, and leading a balanced healthy lifestyle however, I am suggesting that just noticing and listening may be one way to really please your partner. So how do you listen? I mean really listen. You ask questions. You listen for the answer. You ask more questions. You take mental note of what you heard. And you show your partner later on by bringing it up again or coming back with some ideas and suggestions based on what you heard. Show excitement, or empathy, or support based on the information you are gathering. Now that IS SEXY! Just sayin’.
