Shaving for Guys with Acne


"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. Reading this article, you will learn the best practices for shaving with acne, how to combat acne, and better facial care tips."

The Strongest Beard

beardsculpture.jpgThink your beard is awesome? Go beard-to-beard with Antanas Kontrimas and try lifting a person with it.

"The Lithuanian has been lengthening and strengthening his facial hair for over 30 years, which explains how it recently lifted a 140-pound female model nearly a foot off the ground for five seconds--a new Guinness World Record for "The Heaviest Weight Lifted by a Beard"

The Irritations of Modern Life

irritationdefense.JPGA 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.

"The trappings of Modern Day living can also bring irritation into our lives, causing many of us unwanted stress. 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.

"People are most irritable in the morning because the brain is waking up and subconsciously setting out a plan for the day, if things don't go according to this plan it upsets the balance of the brain which can lead to irritation and stress!" - Jo Hemmings, behavioural psychologist

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.

Why does God Like Facial Hair?

jesusbeard.jpgFrom Slate:

"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."

Get Your Free Razor from Raz*War

iwantmyfreekit.jpgRaz*War is giving away free shaving kits, but only until October 31st, so the time is getting short to claim yours.

Why are they doing this?

"Consumers are fed up being ripped off since years by the giants of the razor industry. More blades is often synonym of more expensive products.Today they are looking for a change. It is well known that razors and razor blades are extremely expensive. Enter a store and pay attention to the prices! We know that people want to buy this kind of products online but they are often afraid of being disappointed with the quality or the delivery of these products. In order to bring answers to these concerns and to lower the risks for the consumers, Raz*War is launching the "I want my free kit" campaign.

To qualify, you need to go to I want my free kit and follow the instructions there (it's pretty simple).
