Papaya and Medicinal Benefits

Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton

Beard Oils

There is nothing more better than having your man smelling clean & fresh.

Hygiene being very important, both in and out of the bedroom as well as being well groomed. But, what about the beards? Men do tend to shaved their heads and I have made mention of grooming their private parts below but they do tend to want to keep the beard!

So, lets go further on what to look for:

  • Beard Oil is not only good for the facial hair but your skin underneath.
  • Keeping your skin hydrated and smooth skin under your beard, will deter your beard becoming itchy (also known as beard dandruff &/or beardruff).
  • Depending on the beard oil product you choose, you will feel the difference in hair, becoming softer and shiny.
  • Beard Oils, due to essential oils used, will act as a scent, keeping you fresh and clean almost for an entire day rather than your everyday moisturiser.
  • Beard Oil is best used in the mornings, after taking a shower. Only a small amount of beard oil is used depending on the length of hair.
  • If beard hair is particularly long, a beard comb is an essential for easier grooming.
  • Un-oiled beards can become dry, wiry and will look unkempt.

I have chosen a few different suppliers in various countries to offer a board range of products for various skin types. I have also made a mental note to accommodate a budget for everyone is mind so this can cater for everyone.

Accutane Medication

Everyone has suffered from Acne at sometime during life. I have also seen that with most males and females, trying over-the-counter medications, is very much a trial and error. Yet, when it has to do with our hormones, unfortunately, extra attention needs to be sought.

Although quite a few years ago now, I had been on Accutane medication and for quite a few months. So, I had wanted to share my story with you here with you.

Once I had started treatment, the first thing which had stood out was my skin drying in certain areas and not a little dry but very dry. Having oily skin, this was quite noticeable and at times, skin becoming pinkish/red in colour and flaky.

During the course of 4 or 5 months, you will notice that the skin will become worse before getting better. After this time frame, you skin will become some what clearer although if you are thinking that the treatment is over, think again.

From my experience and of the people that I knew who were on this medication at the time, treatment was usually 6-8 months yet I had been an exception. I had been on this much longer.

I had suffered blood noses, headaches/migraines and severe dry lips. The blood noses and already having had experience with my headaches and migraines, was nothing new. It was that it was more frequent than have a headache/migraine on occasions.

The dry lips is an understatement. This is where my lips were so red raw, the skin peeling that at most times, I would be having tears every now then rolling down my cheeks. Asking me to smile was also something that I was not willing to do as I knew that as soon as I did, the skin on my lips would crack open and begin to bleed. This wouldn’t stop for several hours later.

Asking me if I would do it again or if I would have had any hesitations? My answer is definitely NO!

My only question for you is if you can handle some of the after affects of taking this medication?

Mens Hair

Although hair is hair, on difference parts of the body, you will find the different textures such as facial, beard, arms, legs, head and pubic hair.

It is a well known fact that pubic hair is a lot more coarse that the hair on any other part of the body as well as being curly. No matter how much research I have put into this one, no-one is able to give me a definitive answer. I guess testing this out on mice or gorillas will need to be scrapped as the true answer will lie in history itself, cultural background and/or genetics.

Different parts of the body hair grow at different stages throughout a persons cycle. Lets go into this a little bit further and will explain in more depth of the different types of hair.

Lanugo is downy hair on the body of a fetus. It’s the first hair produced by the fetal hair follicles and it usually appears on the fetus at about 5 months of gestation. Lanugo or Downy hair is very fine, soft and usually unpigmented.

Vellus hair is short, fine and has a slight tinge in colour which develops all over the body during childhood and into puberty. Also, vellas hair and the follicle itself is not connected to the sebaceous gland like terminal hair.

Terminal hair is what grows on the head, face, under arms and pubic region. It is long, thick and pigmented hair than any where else on your body (men in particular). Due to hormones taking place, terminal hair replaces vellus hair. When it develops in puberty/adolescence, it is then called androgenic hair.

Androgenic (or body) hair is terminal hair that develops on the body during and after puberty. It is different from the hair on your hair and less visible vellus hair which are much finer and lighter in color.
