84: 7 Skin Care Mistakes Most Men Make

Oct. 18, 2017

Show Notes:

One of the most difficult things when putting together an ensemble can be your shoes. There are so many types out there, and many men mistakenly think that just because shoes are black they can go with any level of formality.

When we think of skin care, we typically think it’s for women. In all honesty, it’s not. A man has to take care of himself just as much, if not more, than a woman.

We are commonly exposed to more dirt, more chemicals, and hazardous materials due to the nature of our work. Most men often don’t realize how much harm is being done until it’s too late. One day they look in the mirror and realize they look like they are twenty years older than they really are.

This can be a big problem, because sadly agism is a real thing. You don’t want to lose out on the job or that girl just because you didn’t take care of your skin.

Once the damage is done, it’s too late - but that doesn’t mean it’s too late to prevent more damage from happening right now.
