Deodorant: Patrick’s ND1 Natural Deodorant

When most people think of natural grooming products, their minds instantly go to deodorant. It's known that those that use ingredients like aluminum may not be the best for your health.

Patrick's natural deodorant has the performance and capability to stop odors without negative side effects. Its formula can inhibit odor-causing bacteria for 24 hours, featuring an ingredient called Niodor, a "future-oriented ingredient" as they like to call it. It has a great scent and is a very thick formula. Definitely a worthy investment.

Hair Cleansing: Every Man Jack 2-in-1 Shampoo and Conditioner

Sometimes less is more, especially when most guys are pressed for time while they complete their morning routines. Enter the shampoo + conditioner combo. Most 2-in-1 products over strip the hair, damaging it, or they leave it feeling like there's a layer of wax congealed on it. Not the case with Every Man Jack’s coconut-based hair cleansers. These products help moisturize and rejuvenate hair. With plenty of scents, there's one to suit any man.

Body Cleanser: Bravo Sierra Hair and Body Solid Cleanser

Another product made in the good ole U S of A, Bravo Sierra bar soap is the perfect way to cleanse not only your body, but your hair, too — just as the name implies. It's a solid, good-sized bar that lasts quite some time and is free of parabens, sulfates, and silicones, and it's available in five scents.

We recommend the original, as the white vetiver and cedarwood scent is intoxicating. Bonus points: Bravo Sierra donates 5% of all sales to the Morale, Welfare and Recreation program, which is dedicated to the well-being of veterans and active-duty servicemen and servicewomen.

Moisturizing Salve: Heal Co. Whipped Tallow Cream

A recent new venture that opened during this past year, Heal Co. was created as a way to help those living with and fighting autoimmune diseases be able to help heal their own bodies. For most who battle these illnesses, traditional drug store brand products usually leave their conditions feeling worse.

The company's whipped tallow balm is sourced from 100% grass-fed cows and may help treat and cure anything, from cracked and dry skin (regardless of severity) to chapped, sun-damaged, or calloused hands. This balm is a wonder salve. While you may not need it for psoriasis or eczema, this balm will have you feeling nourished and not greasy, as it quickly absorbs.

Mineral vs chemical sunscreen: Which one should you actually use?
mens skincare routine changes to make man in sunscreen

Even on cloudy days or days spent indoors, wearing sunscreen every day is a non-negotiable part of a healthy skincare routine. Not only can excess sunlight cause premature aging of the skin, but it's also critical to wear sunscreen to protect against various types of skin cancer. When choosing sunscreen, you'll find two main types -- chemical and mineral sunscreen. The mineral vs chemical sunscreen debate has been an ongoing one, as both forms of sunscreens have their pros and cons. Below, we'll dive into the pros and cons of each type of sunscreen to help you choose the best option.

Pros and cons of chemical sunscreen
Chemical sunscreens, often made of chemicals such as oxybenzone, avobenzone, octinoxate, or other similar chemicals, are absorbed into the skin when applied. This type of sunscreen is generally easy to apply to the face and body and absorbs UV rays that touch the skin.
Pro: hydrating for the skin
Due to the thin and blendable nature of chemical sunscreens, they are generally hydrating for the skin and can be added to cosmetics such as moisturizers, skin tints, or foundation products.
Pro: sweat and water resistant
Many cosmetics that market "SPF included" contain chemical sunscreens. People also like chemical sunscreens because they are quite sweat and water-resistant.
Pro: no white residue
Chemical sunscreens also blend well into the skin and do not leave any white residue. If you think back to the sunscreen you used as a kid, chances are it was a chemical sunscreen. Mineral sunscreens have become more popular in recent years as consumers are paying more attention to the ingredients in their skincare and health products.
Con: not the best for sensitive skin
Although chemical sunscreens are easy to use, they are not always a great choice for those with skin conditions or sensitive skin. The chemicals found in this type of sunscreen can cause allergic reactions or worsen conditions such as melasma.
Con: chemical ingredients and environmental impact
In addition, some of the chemicals used in these products may be linked to cancer, as trace amounts get absorbed into the bloodstream. Another con to consider is the environmental impact of chemical sunscreen, which may damage reefs and other marine environments.

Why everyone is saying bakuchiol is the new (natural) alternative to retinol for your skin
skin

Expected to reach USD 1.79 billion by 2030, the global retinol market has been on the rise recently -- offering an easy and accessible way to achieve brighter, more youthful skin at home. Retinol works by helping to increase your skin's proliferation (creating new skin cells) and helps increase your skin's collagen production to help target acne, fine lines, wrinkles, and other common skin concerns.

Although many people find they have great success with retinol, it's not for everyone. Not only can retinol be harsh on certain skin types, but it's not always the best choice for those who prefer a more natural skincare routine or one that is plant-based. That's why many people opt for Bakuchiol, a natural retinol alternative. Below, we'll break down the hype about Bakuchiol and its potential benefits for your skin.
What is bakuchiol?
Bakuchiol comes from a plant grown in India known as Psoralea corylifolia. Also known as the "babchi" plant, this botanical extract has been used in ancient Chinese medicine and Ayurvedic practices for centuries. Recently, Bakuchiol has gained popularity in the skincare world, offering properties similar to those of the well-known retinol. Bakuchol extract is offered in many forms to add to your skincare routine, such as in serums or moisturizers. Sometimes, Bakuchiol is also combined with other botanicals, such as jojoba or rose hip, to help improve effectiveness.
