Naturals Brand Yes To Carrots Says Yes to Men

After starting with a range of natural skincare that extolled the wonders of the carrot, beyond making an excellent nose for Frosty, Yes To expanded to various other fruits and vegetables. Each piece of produce was picked based on the benefits it offered to skin, hair and body. Tomatoes happen to be high in lycopene, an antioxidant that kicks ass at battling blemishes, so it’s packed into the line for acne-prone skin. And the coconut, specifically its oil, moisturizes like a mofo.

For its latest trick, the affordable naturals brand is doing something for the dudes. Sure, you can use any of the unisex collections, but Natural Man specifically focuses on the needs of man skin. For instance, guys tend to prefer bar soap over shower gel so they offered a bar that is far from the average crummy, crumbly cake. The jet-black bar is so colored because it contains deep cleaning activated charcoal, basically a detox for your skin, plus there’s aloe in there to soothe and soften everything. And not to generalize but guys aren’t the most vigilant about sun protection so the daily moisturizer has you covered with SPF 15 even if you don’t care. (But you should.) For the non-bearded types, there is a shaving cream packed with calming aloe, hydrating vitamin E and almond oil, and alcohol-free after-shave to chill your freshly sheared face with more aloe, menthol, and tea tree oil. For anyone who’s ever been to busy to bathe post workout and maybe offended anyone within 20 feet with a sense of smell, you’ll want to stock up on the Shower To-Go Cleansing Cloths, which do what the name suggests with a blend of mentha citrata leaf extract, vitamin E and caffeine. That’s not to say you shouldn’t eventually hit the shower, but these will stop the stink until you can wash up for real.

Skinceuticals, Pure for Men, and more: Try these 9 night creams for your skin
Wake up to healthier and younger looking skin with these spectacular night creams

Night cream for men can help in eliminating skin-damaging free radicals and promoting skin recovery while you sleep. Beauty sleep is no myth, as getting 7 to 9 hours of sleep boosts collagen production (as in, fewer wrinkles) and promotes a more glowing complexion. Hence, using the right night cream can really help in accelerating the recovery process.

The right night cream should penetrate deep into your skin in order for the cream's active ingredients like hydraulic acid (for softer, smoother skin) or vitamin C (for better hydration) to reach more of your skin cells. Melatonin-based night creams are handy too — especially in the summer — since they minimize the harmful effects of environmental stressors like UV light.

We’ve all heard the expression, "You are what you eat," and in many ways, it’s true. After all, the foods we eat are broken down into the very nutrients that end up forming and repairing our cells and tissues and carrying out necessary processes in our bodies. Perhaps a more surprising but true modification of this adage could be, "Your skin reflects what you eat." That’s right — the health of your skin is a direct reflection of your gut health, which is affected by your dietary habits.
Due to something called the gut-skin axis, the skin and the digestive tract are in constant communication and inextricably linked. The trillions of bacterial and fungal cells that reside in your gut microbiome digest your food and provide immune protection by warding off pathogens to keep your body and skin healthy.
However, when things like a chronically poor diet or antibiotic use disrupt and damage these microbes, the lining of your digestive tract gets damaged, and it can become leaky. This leads to chronic, low-level inflammation that has been shown to cause acne, atopic dermatitis, rosacea, and other skin conditions. It can also lead to dull, unhealthy, red, or inflamed-looking skin. Therefore, what you eat significantly impacts the health of your gut and skin.

How to get clear skin: Eat these foods
Fortunately, there are plenty of foods for healthy skin that protect it from sun damage, wrinkles, inflammatory conditions, acne, and fine lines. You can nourish your skin cells, protect your gut microbiome, and combat cellular damage. Keep scrolling for the best foods to eat for healthy, vibrant, glowing, clear skin.

Like any of life's pursuits, looking our best means keeping the right tools handy. If keeping your face clean-shaven is your ideal, you'll need more than just the best razor to get an efficient shave. Your shaving regimen isn't really complete without using one of the best aftershave balms, a critical step in keeping your skin fresh, hydrated, and in the best shape possible following a close shave. Which one is best for you? Here are a few things to think about before you start shopping for your next aftershave balm.

Shaving can overly irritate the skin, especially if you’re not careful or properly equipped. (Black men in particular can benefit from using one of these moisturizing balms — rather than a drying, alcohol-based, classic aftershave — as part of keeping skin in great shape and fighting ingrown hairs.) Use one of the aftershave balms we recommend below to deliver comfort and relief. These aftershave balms are designed to target problem areas and cool down the skin while hydrating, moisturizing, and protecting your skin, fighting the wear and tear of climate and aging. Change the way you shave by adding one of the best aftershave balms to your essential grooming products, then thank us later.
