How To Get The Best Healthy Shave

15 Nov

guy using ER-GB40When it comes to shaving, getting a superior close shave without damaging the skin is key. Learn how to get the best shave, and keep a cool demeanor until the day is done. I’ll summarize some healthy tips for you from information I received at Shaver Information For Men.

Shaving is all about having the right tools. Choose razor that has a rubberized grip and multiple blades (3 to 5 is best) for a close and comfortable shave every time. A sharp razor is best- you want your shave to be smooth against your skin, not tearing, which can cause cuts, ingrown hairs, and an overall uneven shave.

You also want to make sure that you shave with the shaft of your hair, not against it. You risk less damage to your skin this way, and get less ingrown hairs in the process, especially if you are prone to them. Since your facial hair grows in several directions, you will have to shift the direction of your razor several times to get an even shave with optimum results.

Use shaving cream as a shaving barrier if you have it- if not, soap and water, or even a dab of baby oil will do. Don’t ever do a simple ‘dry shave’ where you just use water or shave your bare skin while dry. This will result in a nasty rash that itches and burns, and will tear your skin as well.  I like to carry a small shaving kit with me that I use at the gym when I’m working out. So, it’s always good to get travel type sizes of shaving cream for something like that as well.

If you have sensitive skin, use an astringent after shaving to prevent swelling, redness, and infection. A great astringent to use is witch hazel, as it is both an anti bacterial as well as a natural soother for the skin. Aloe Vera gel and even tea tree oil work as great astringents as well.

If you are shaving with a new razor for the first time, make sure to properly exfoliate and prepare your skin prior to shaving. The best way to do this is in the shower- scrub your face with a great cleansing cloth, then allow the steam and heat from your hot shower to open up your hair follicles and make them ready for shaving. This helps ensure not only a close shave, but a safer one as well when you are using a brand new razor. You can exfoliate and prepare your skin for every shave for a close and smooth result every time.

You can get a great shave every time by following these great tips.

How I Shaped My Body

01 Jun

I am a computer programmer, which means I have a typical sitting job. I sit at work; I sit driving to work and back home, and I sit at home. However, I do not have problems with extra weight. I exercise every day, and I am very careful about my diet. So, I manage to maintain a healthy weight, and I was very proud about it.

How I realized thinks are not that great

It seemed good until last year. I decided to buy new bathing costume, and went with my friend to shopping. I found beautiful costume and tried it. When I showed it to my friend, she said it looks great, and she can hardly notice my cellulite. My cellulite! What cellulite? I have great weight, and I do not have cellulite! But, when I looked in the mirror more closely, I noticed she is right. I have cellulite.

I was not pleased with this discovery. It did not look too bad, but I always thought my healthy diet and regular practice will protect me from it. Then I realized it will need more effort to have a perfect body, or as close as possible to that. I started searching for the perfect plan, and it was not easy.

How I solved things

Do you know how many fitness programs you can find on Internet? I do. I searched for a while, and then found one program. It was not for those people who are not fit, since it is very hard, but I found it challenging. When I tried it for the first time, I thought I will die.
I survived, and with time I started to love it, especially when first results showed. Now my body looks like those in commercials, and there is no cellulite at all. It was not easy, but results are worth it.

Perfect Training For A Perfect Job

24 Mar

I am 31 year old, and all of my hobbies include some physical activity. I love being outdoors and in nature. I go mountaineering, cycling, trekking, free climbing, and many other activities. I worked several jobs, but quit because I could not stand being inside or in office eight hours a day. 

I found my dream job

After several unsatisfying jobs, a friend of mine offered me to join him in the agency that offers unique traveling experience to adventurers. In short, this agency creates different tours, and there is one thing in common to all of them: adventure. There is rafting on wildest rivers, trekking through desert, mountain biking tours, mountaineering and paragliding afterward and so.

Most important part of this job is that I travel as a guide with many groups. It is really my dream job. I travel around the world; I participate in interesting activities, and I am paid for all that. Can things are better than that? I think not.

I prepared for my dream job

There was just one problem. I needed to get ready for this job. I am fit because of all activities I performed, but that was not enough. For this job, I should be in perfect condition. My friend told me about fitness program he used to become fit, and I thought if that were good for him, it should be good for me as well.

I started training, and it was a living hell. As I said, I am fit, but this was a way beyond fit. It was crazy, and I thought I would give up. Only thing that kept me training was my dream job. I lasted for a week than two; and then I noticed first results. My body became more carved; my clothes were too big, and all together, I looked much better than before. I was ready to start working.

Use The Following Workout If You Are A Busy Person

22 Nov

I am a busy person and I do most of my exercises at home and I have tried many DVDs workout before. So it is not surprising that when I read the T25 review I was interested at once in the workout.

What it is included in the workout

When I got the package, I found the following items inside: the workout calendar that has been scheduled out for to 10 weeks. The quick start guide is a simple pamphlet which tells the user how he should get started and how to take the measurement or photos. The Focus T25 Fast track pamphlet is about the meal to take for five day so that you can improve with the weight loss. Get It Done Nutrition guide is the guide for 25 recipes and it includes only 5 ingredients and it may take only five up to ten minutes to prepare. The kit will also come with a medium tension and red medium tension resistance band.

Exercises to do with the workout

The DVD that has both Alpha and Beta workouts for which all have 25 minutes. When I bought this kit, it had two for five week programs which are Alpha and Beta phase. The third phase which I had to order separately is known as the Gama phase and it is a third five week sequence.

Every week I had to do the stretch workout and during the five days, to do any other workouts depending on the rotating t25 calendar. Even if the workout had been marketed to be 25 minutes, it has included the back to back workouts for Friday which means that for one day, the person may have to do the workout for one rest day. However, it does not mean that the workout should be done at once, since the person who does not have enough time should do it for only 25 minutes.

I Restored And Improved My Body Shape

21 Nov

Few years ago I was fat. Political correctness aside, there is no way to say it in a different way. I had a sitting job; I practiced too little and ate too much, and it showed on my body. 

How did I get there?

When I look back in time, there is no particular moment or event I can point my finger to and say that is it. That is the moment I started being fat. It usually starts insensibly. One day you are well built and fit, and the next day you skip your exercise routine. Or you eat some fast food for lunch because you had no time to prepare healthy salad when you left home
Next thing you notice is that you cannot button your favorite trousers, and it is getting harder to walk on the fifth floor of the building where your friend lives, and there is no elevator. So, you say to yourself spring is just few weeks away and then you will start with diet and exercise again. But, few weeks later you have some good excuse, and life goes on.

How did I fix it?

Last year my friend was getting married, and I went to buy a dress. That day reality hit me hard. All the dresses I liked were too small for a new me, and those that were good… I will rather not talk about them. That day I realized I have a problem, and I decided to become fit again.

It was not easy. I thought I need fast results. After some surfing, I choose the hardest fitness program I could find. It was a combination of a strict diet and hard training program. In the beginning I used lighter version to become fit again, and then I started with a full program. It was hard, but results compensate it all. Today, my body looks even better than it used to, and I will never let myself neglect it again.

Why I Like P90x Exercise

12 Aug

From the time I read the P90x3 Workout review, I was interested and I wanted to know more about it. The P90X is the exercise on the DVD and it helps the user to have lean and ripped body within 90 days. However, when I decided to use the program, I knew that it is not meant to be used for the faint hearted so I was prepared to achieve what I wanted.

How to use the workout in the DVD

When I got the DVD, I had to work out for 6-7 days per week and each session lasts for about 1 and 30 minutes. The workout is too rigorous and I was asked to undergo the fitness test first before I can order the system. This is to make sure that the user is up to the challenge before he starts with it.

If you want to know more about P90X, then you have to know that it is a workout that it is being sold by Beach Body on their website and from the television during the television infomercials. When you buy the DVD, you will get the 90 day satisfaction guarantee and if you do not like it, then you can still send it back.

You do not have too much time to rest within the time

When I started with the workout, I found out that every workout has been presented into a circuit format and when I had to move from one exercise to another so there is only less rest within the exercise. This means that the heart rate will be kept up. The exercise targets different parts of the body from the back to the chest and legs, back, arms and shoulders, triceps and shoulders with the biceps. I used the bowflex SelectTech 552 Adjustable dumbbell for the exercises.

The DVD is successful since it is based on the idea of muscle confusion. This means that it is about muscle confusion while introducing new moves. The research has found out that the workout that brings out different exercises also offer man benefits and this is why P90X works better.
