Looking at the word "Beauty", many concepts come to mind.
Some seem to view it it as beyond the physical to other aspects like attitude, lifestyle, spiritual and so on.
But here I'm to speak of what I do for myself for physical beauty.
I'm a guy, and for that reason I don't go through the rigours of applying, makeups, shaving my legs or the others.
For general healthy skin
- First I rely on exercise.
My routine every morning especially when I go to work is to take an early morning walk, especially when I'm too weak to jog. Then occasionally I do some push-ups to match.
One might ask, how exercise helps In beauty.
By exercising, our body cells are replaced and that also go a long way to affect the skin also. I noticed that after I observed that most weight lifters have this smooth though soft skin. It is also a plus, when protein is consumed as that replace worn out cells, which also have something to do with the skin!
- Cream and pomade.
I'm very lucky in this aspect as my body hardly reacts to lotions that are applied to the body.
For extremely dry moments, like harmattan in my country, I make use of Vaseline to keep moist, while for the rainy a little application of a cream of my choice is okay. I mostly make use of the brand called "cocoa and butter".
For my hair
I actually grow a moderate hair, but endeavour to wash it regularly and occasionally make use of shampoo to to be more thorough.
For special occasions, I apply gel on my hair to keep it firm, but that is after the combing and the brushing aspect is done with.
I also make use of hair oil, and creams to make it shiny and greasy.
I then ensure to trim once a week, to maintain a particular style of hair.
For my face.
The face is vastly recognized as having one of the most subtle part of the body, covered by a delicate coat of skin.
I watch the food I eat to make sure it has moderate amount of oil in other to avoid pimple infestation, as I had it for some years, though it's all cleared.
I apply light moisture when extremely dry to as I have an oily face.
I'm neither a lady nor a heavily built guy(hence, don't need very tight outfits lol) as I go to gyms only very few times in a month, sometimes only on Saturdays.
So my form of dressing, have a simple of undertone. Cloths that are not tight but are neither too fray.
