"Acne is a problem I am intimately familiar with. While I did not have terribly bad acne as a teenager, I suffered through breakouts, blackheads, and pimples just like the rest of the world. As a young adult, I was dismayed to continue to have the occasional pimple. Usually connected to stress or bad eating, I continued to have acne for a long time. As you can see, I am intimately familiar with this topic and how to combat both teenage and adult acne.

A new survey sponsored by Gillette finds 57% of those in the UK are irritated every single day of the year.
57% of those surveyed admit to feeling irritated every day, and research revealed that it's their fellow countrymen that are actually causing them to be annoyed. The top irritations? They can't stand other people being rude to them, people's lack of hygiene, and poor customer service.

When technology fails it really gets on our nerves with the population ranking broken phones (22%) and computers (30%) as more irritating than a car breaking down (18%) - suggesting we as a country are relying too heavily on our technology."
The release of the survey marks the launch of Gillette's new 'Irritation Defense' range, which is said to help defend against five signs of shaving irritation, something that affects 82% of men worldwide every day.
According to the survey, morning is the worst time. Out of the 3,000 people surveyed nearly ¾ of them admit to being at their worst between 7 and 9 am.

The strangest annoyances revealed in the survey tend to be observational irritations regarding modern day living in the UK with things like skinny jeans and organic food listed amongst their bugbears.
"Although beards appear repeatedly in religious texts, God never explicitly tells us why they're so holy. In the absence of any divine exposition, many theologians have posited that a hairy face is a symbol of masculinity bestowed upon men by God."

Evidently, in the world of knife and razor sharpeners, there's a bit of a competition going on about shaving with kitchen cleavers. I'm not sure what the point is, other than to show off how fine of an edge they can get on something, but it sure makes for an entertaining way to pass the time on a Friday. Here's a taste:
