What causes inflammation on the skin?
There are several problems that result in skin feeling sensitive, hot or inflamed. It is important to attend to irritated skin, as issues tend to persist and spread.
• Dermatitis/eczema are often due to skin contact with irritants. Detergents, bleaches and fragrances are frequent culprits. Allergies, cold air and emotional stress can also trigger flare ups. Symptoms include dry, flaky, red and itchy skin and may resolve with cessation of contact with irritant and application of gentle moistursers. Chronic dermatitis may be due to an over-activated inflammatory response and treatment beyond topical products may need to be sought Read More
Organic Skincare for men should work when used topically. The idea is to combine topical and ingested anti aging ingredients to fight the battle against age. This “new” compound in the vegetable ‘not only slows down vision loss and middle-age spread’, but also experts believe the loss of energy production is a key driver of ageing.
What broccoli contains is something called nicotinamide mononucleotide compensated (NMN).
It has been suggested by this study that physical signs of ageing could be slowed down by a compound found in broccoli, cabbage and avocado.
MNM in this study was found to slow down the deterioration of liver and eye function, bone density and the metabolism. While it was also found to prevent laboratory mice from gaining weight as they aged – despite consuming more food. Nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN) compensated for the loss of energy production, which experts believe is a key driver of the body’s ageing process. Read More
Yes the old broccoli appears to be a very handy Holy Grail. A very thorough study by Stephen Matthews suggests that compound in the vegetable ‘slows down vision loss and middle-age spread’. Experts believe the loss of energy production is a key driver of ageing. This truly rejuvenating compound called nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN) is the responsible for the dramatic reduction of cell damage by rejuvenating adults at a cellular level. The NMN found in broccoli, it slowed the deterioration of the eye and metabolism

A breakthrough in understanding human skin cells offers a pathway for new anti-ageing treatments.
For the first time, scientists at Newcastle University have identified that the activity of a key metabolic enzyme found in the batteries of human skin cells declines with age.
A study, published online in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology, has found that the activity of mitochondrial complex II significantly decreases in older skin.
This discovery brings experts a step closer to developing powerful anti-ageing treatments and cosmetic products which may be tailored to counteract the decline in the enzyme’s activity levels.
The Round, Round World of Beer Belly

skincare regime for men
1.For cleaning, rubbing a bar of soap on one’s face, while easy and convenient isn’t going to cut it. Because a man has larger pores and more oil, he needs something that will exfoliate, hydrate, and clean his larger pores. And most men will find it easier to shave because exfoliation helps reduce ingrown facial hairs. Read More

Microbeads in facial scrubs damaging the environment; “Save Sydney Harbour”.
As creator of Christian Acuña Organic Skin Care for Men I never thought the day would come when I would write a piece on a pernicious threat to our iconic harbour and the fish living in it.
Never say never as the saying goes.
Thanks to Miranda Kerr, a person for whom I have a great deal of respect and whose organic skincare ethos I share, I have been made aware of a sinister pollutant in our beautiful harbour.
As WA Today reported on 6 December 2013, plastic microbeads have been used by the larger skincare brands and, surprisingly, some smaller “eco” brands you may not have expected to incorporate such an ‘ingredient’. Read More
Can a guy use girl deodorant? See below for the answer to this vexing question.
Are you a millennial, Gen Y or just think it’s about time you took more care of your appearance?
Bathroom cabinet rammed full of your girlfriend’s or wife’s cosmetics? Your lonely, blunt, rusty and hair clogged (her leg hair!) razor the only sign of you?
Slapping on some of her expensive face cream can only be a good thing right? – smelling like your girlfriend or wife aside that is.
Two key reasons why you can’t hitch your skincare trailer to a woman’s SUV – you need men’s face cream.
- Testosterone – the male sex androgen hormone has a pronounced effect on men’s skin making for a structure and composition different than women’s skin.The higher doses of testosterone in men means a stronger and thicker epidermis, oilier skin, larger pores and yup, you guessed it – hair loss and grey hair.
- Phospholipids – say what? Well, perhaps better to explain the purpose rather than define the term.These little movers and shakers work at creating a protective and reparative skin barrier, lend a hand in retaining skin moisture, are well tolerated and penetrate fast.Products containing phospholipids have the so-called phospholipid touch – cool, soft, non-greasy and non-tacky. All the things that guys tend to want even if they don’t know it yet.
So do your skin a favour and choose men’s face cream, as it is specifically formulated for men’s skin. But store it out of your partner’s sight as it might just work better and faster on her skin than what she is currently using. Plus it will keep her guessing how you look so good.
 Millenials (millennial generation aka generation Y) born between 1982 and 1994 – likely to make a fortune from an internet start-up while still living with parents. Never known life without the internet.
Can a guy use girl deodorant? Of course! Just don’t tell anyone and deny it if someone says you smell like their wife.
