Bathrooms are a sacred place where we store some of our most personal and intimate items. You can learn a lot about someone just by looking around their bathroom; sometimes you learn things you never would have known before. Things get even more interesting when you come across self-care items you didn’t expect to find.
The fact is, everyone should be practicing self-care and men are no exception.
Now that we are rapidly approaching fall, there is no better time to revive your self-care routine. Who knows, you just might learn a thing or two from what the men in your life have or get inspired to have a self-care date night.
For people who struggle with it, acne is a big deal. While there are plenty of treatment options on the market, it can be difficult to find one that will genuinely work with your skin type. Topical treatments also only work on the surface, leaving the root of the problem untouched.
For this reason, and especially if he is one of 50 million who deals with acne, there is a good chance that the guy in your life will have a LED therapy light. BlueMD is a blue light acne treatment that helps penetrate pores to get rid of the bacteria that causes acne and blemishes. After the blue light, BlueMD emits red and infrared lights to reduce inflammation and promote skin healing. Finding this item is a great way to try it for yourself.
Hair, Skin and Nails Supplements
Everyone wants to look their best and will do what it takes to help them do so. Hair, skin and nails supplements offer an easy way to get the key nutrients you may need to help make all three look and feel strong and beautiful.
There are plenty of options on the market for hair, skin and nails supplements, so it can sometimes be confusing to find the right option. As with any supplement, make sure that a doctor has been consulted. The other issue, that men may especially find limiting, is that they all seem to be targeted toward women. Both Nature Made and SugarBearHair provide a product that is gender neutral, because everyone deserves to have great looking hair, skin and nails.
Microdermabrasion is a term that you may or may not be familiar with, but finding an at-home microdermabrasion kit on his side of the bathroom goes to show how up-to-date he is on skin care treatment.
Taking advantage of microdermabrasion technology will give him, and you if you decide to give it a try, his best-looking skin. MicrodermMD allows people to practice microdermabrasion at home, helping save money from getting it done at a dermatologist or spa. There are plenty of instructional videos and information on microdermabrasion should you want to see how it works.
When looking at his side of the bathroom you may come across something called sildenafil. From the name alone you may or may not know what that is. Sildenafil is the active ingredient in Viagra and is used to treat erectile dysfunction. While you may think that your man is too young to worry about ED, the truth is that one in four new ED cases are diagnosed in men under 40.
While getting the brand name drug can be expensive, there are some alternatives. Companies that provide telemedical services like hims offer an affordable sildenafil option.
That way he can consult with a doctor online, have the item discreetly shipped to him and avoid any awkward conversations. There’s no need to worry about ED, but if it bothers you the best thing you can do is talk to him.
One fear many people have is aging, especially when it is noticeable. Men also struggle when lines and creases begin to show up on their faces. It is for that reason that people will try whatever they can to slow or even prevent these signs of aging from showing up prematurely.
The key is to find a product that will work and do what you want it to do for your skin. Argan Stem Cell Serum contains ingredients from the argan tree which has been known to promote the skin’s natural repair process and reverse signs of aging.
Other ingredients work to rejuvenate and protect the skin. Finding an anti-aging serum shows how he is capable of taking matters into his own hands and is able to look to the future and take preventative steps.
With a new season, look to find new places of inspiration for your self-care routine. One perusal of his side of the bathroom just may surprise and encourage you to become the best versions of yourself individually and as a couple.
