Aftershave is one of the important components of men’s shaving kit. It may be in the form of gel, lotion or balm which is generally used after shaving. Usually it contains antiseptic agent which protect skin from infection due to cuts. Besides this it brings softness and moisturizes the skin. Well perfumed aftershave may boost the mood.

Parameters of handsome men through women's eye

When we talk about a handsome man the common picture that comes in our mind a tall and smart man with good physique. But guys do you know really how women define their handsome men? I’ve taken a survey and according to that most women think personality and nature are the two most valuable things that a guy should have to be called as handsome man. It’s very surprising that they even don’t go for look first……hmmm interesting. Women think confidence level in a man reflects his personality. Whether a man is good looking but with less confidence shouldn’t be called as handsome.

Tall and good looking men can obviously attract women with their appealing look but there are also so many things that a man should have to be called as a complete man. Those are how he speaks, whether the man has positive attitudes in his life or not. A very important thing is that how he respects women. So all these things will come under the nature of a man what I stated earlier. So guys!! A gym made body, a stylish hair style could give you a smart look obviously but don’t think that’ll enough to make you handsome. Along with maintaining your body and style you need to look after the internal thinks also. Take care of your intelligence, your outlook and try to be a complete man. All the best!!

How to prevent wrinkles?

Many of us are so scared about this word wrinkle that before those crooked lines appear all over our face, we are all set to use any thing which ones recommend. With the age the crinkles appear, there are no other options but to accept it. But if we take some particular measures, then we can prevent early wrinkling. Some of the ways used to prevent it are:
1. Eating healthy foods which are rich in high anti-oxidants. Need to avoid spicy and fast foods as much as possible.
2. Drink atleast 8-10 glasses of water per day to make skin soft, healthy and shiny.
3. Before you step out of the house, always apply sunscreen with SPF 15 or higher.
4. Make sure that your eyes are covered with sunglasses to stay away from ultra violet rays whenever you go outside.
5. Get plenty of sleeps.
6. Avoid drinking alcohol and stop smoking.
7. Moisturize your skin daily.
8. Try to minimize the stress level. Practice pranayam and meditation under proper supervision of an expert.
9. Some light exercises or yoga should be done. A brisk walk in the morning is also very helpful.

I would like to suggest a home made mask (apply three times a week), which might help you to prevent wrinkle. Make a paste of a small banana, 2 tablespoon of fresh cream, 1 tablespoon of honey and 1 tablespoon of oat flour. Apply the mask all over the face including the area around the eyes and neck. After 30 minutes, rinse off with mineral water. Pat dries the face and then dab on a little rose hydrosol (hydrosols are a byproduct of steam distillation, which are formed while extracting essential oil).


to avoid dehydration of skin.

Make sure that your eyes are covered with sunglasses to stay away from ultra violet rays.
