Stubble…. looks great! Sporting a two-day shadow is the in-thing now. But a sharp stubble can leave your beautiful skin with a bad rash, especially if you have a dry and sensitive skin and are prone to redness. Please get your men to soften that sandpaper with the help of conditioners!
Acne or folliculitis: Just because men are more prone to oily skin and acne doesn’t mean you can breathe easy. Close contact with infected skin can leave you with an annoying acne breakout so please get your man to visit your skin doctor so yours is indirectly protected too. For starters, get them a face wash that takes care of excess oil like one with salisylic acid, benzoyl peroxide etc.
It is not simply called crowning glory for no reason. Hair and scalp are most sensitive and dandruff is a pain. We all know not to have a common comb and not to share towels, but its also important to make sure you also keep your pillow to yourself. If your man has sticky scalp or acne on his fore head and back, please get him an anti dandruff shampoo and get him to use it every day for 15 days continuously. My current favorites are Arcolane, node DS shampoo.
MissMalini recommends: The dandruff range from Sunsilk and Dove.
Do it right and the Man v/s Skin battle is over!
