Guys may think they can get by with a quick shave, but I’ve seen too many gents walking around with razor burn and unsymmetrical facial hair. Sometimes, we need to review the basics so I enlisted Anthony Sosnick, founder of the grooming line Anthony For Men, to offer his tips for a perfect shave. 1. Around the time that you chugged your first beer, you probably also learned that the most important key to a successful shave is shaving in the direction of the beard growth. “Usually the beard grows downward toward your neck and upwards from the base of your neck,” says Tony.
2. To get a close shave, always wash your face with warm water to soften the hair before putting a razor to it and then apply a shaving cream to help the blades glide along the skin.
3. During the shave, use your free hand to keep your skin taut and as flat as possible and use short strokes starting at the side burns, cheeks and neck. “This helps to prevent nicks,” says Tony. Save your lip and chin for last so the cream can soften these heavier whiskers. And don’t forget to replace your razor after three or four uses. 4. Finish by rinsing your face with cool water and gently pat, don’t rub, your face dry. If you’re prone to razor burn, splash on an after shave balm to keep your fresh face soft and hydrated. Now that we’ve got your face covered, don’t forget to landscape your body. Bushy back hair won’t entice a woman to wrap her arms around you so be sure to clean up the area before your shirt comes off. I’ve recently come across a new tool specifically made for these notoriously hard-to-reach spots. It’s called The Brazor (shown left), and it’s made with a longer handle so you don’t have to contort yourself to reach your target. Would you try The Brazor? Yes. This looks like a good invention. (90%, 9 Votes) No. I can handle my back hair myself. (10%, 1 Votes)

There’s always tomorrow to start your diet, pick up that book, clean out your closet yadda, yadda, yadda, right? Well, what if there is no tomorrow! Ok, I don’t mean to get all drama-rama on you, but today’s Earth Day, so preservation is top of mind. If you ever wondered what little bit you could do to help the Big Mama, here are three simple beauty renovations you can do that will enhance your life without an inch of sacrifice. 1.Hair This “Instead of drying your whole head, just do the top half and let the bottom dry naturally,” says Jessica Iclisoy, founder of environmentally friendly California Baby. No one sees the bottom layers of your hair anyway, not to mention that hot tools like hair dryers, which I’m happy to mention are coming out in energy-saving models, and curling irons can damage locks while excess energy usage can burn a whole in your wallet.

Stringy designs can feel like a permanent wedgie (there goes the sex factor). Plus, the delicate material can fray after a few washes. Instead, get intimate with sleek seamless thongs. Commando thongs are incredible. They come in all kinds of prints and colors and are so comfy, you really feel like you’re going commando. To see for yourself, click here.
