Man Fashion Tips: Hip Nightly Rituals that Improve Your Appearance

Our daily lives are filled with work, stress and activities that are bound to cause a strain on our complexion. To present a better version of yourself, start picking up nightly habits so you can be sure to look your absolute best.

Spend some time at night before you hit the sack to tweeze unwanted hair on your face. Getting rid of unwanted hair between your eyebrows, taming bushy brows and plucking unruly nose or ear hairs are all jobs better tackled at night, especially if you have sensitive skin. This is because tweezing can lead to redness and performing this grooming operation at night means that any irritation that develops has eight hours to subside, so your face would not have any awkward red spots.


Lips get hard and chapped during harsh weathers. Lip balm may help soften the lips but you can begin to nurture natural soft lips while you sleep. Begin by exfoliating your lips when you brush your teeth. Simply run your toothbrush lightly back and forth across your upper and lower lips a few times. This is to get rid of any dry, flaky skin and only takes mere seconds. Apply a softening lip balm after brushing your teeth and you will wake up in the morning with kissable nice lips.

It is important to take note of what we consume because what we eat or drink reflects on our skin. Drinking caffeine in the form of coffee, energy drinks or soda, or consuming more than a couple of alcoholic beverages in the evening will keep you awake. However, drinking all these will cause you to lose out on restorative sleep time. They are also dehydrating which increases the appearance of wrinkles because they dry out your skin. Switch to decaf tea if you crave a hot drink or plain old ice water for a cold one instead before sleeping for younger-looking skin.

Make it a habit to do some gentle stretching before bed as it will lengthen your muscles and within a few weeks, you will have a leaner, more toned appearance and being more agile. Moreover, light stretching will help you relax and make sleeping better. You will appear more relaxed in the morning without having to attend any yoga classes to reap these benefits.

There are plenty of other excellent nightly rituals that will help improve your appearance. Make them an essential habit every night to gain the best version of you.

Man Fahsion Tips: 5 Simple Tips to Protect Your Leather Goods

Everyone loves to own an occasional leather item. However, leather garments are bound to cost a whole lot. Hence it is advantaging to know how to care for them.

When cleaning your leather items, always choose a product that helps preserve the leather's natural lubricating oils rather than strip them away. Avoid cleaners that leave any sort of grease or residue as it can make leather vulnerable to bacteria which will tarnish the leather and eventually break down the stitching. It is best to test out the cleaner on a less visible area before you start to clean the full surface of your leather good. Pay attention not to use heat to dry leather and always stuff the garment while it is being dried to maintain its original shape.
Leather needs conditioning and the oils found in conditioners help lubricate leather and replenish its elasticity. However, beware of products that contain petroleum or mineral oils as they will damage your leather goods over time. Do more conditioning if your leather item is exposed to hot sunny conditions or moisture. Similar to cleaning products, avoid conditioners that leave greasy residues.

Polish your leather item with a fine polishing agent for a clean and glossy finish. However be careful when polishing as some products contain coloring agents that might stain your item's natural color. Bear in mind that using animal fats might darken leather.

It is best to protect every new leather item before using it. Unprotected leather will stiffen and crack rather quickly. Protect your leather item against moisture such as rain, snow, sweat and other liquid hazards. Always remember to apply your protector on clean dry leather periodically and beware of the protector that might fill the leather's pores with grease. Tana Style 16 Protective Spray is a good recommendation for product protection.

Bear in mind that leather goods are best stored in cool, dry places and should never be stored in plastic bags or other nonporous containers. Always stuff empty leather handbags with newspaper to maintain the shape and avoid using metal hangers when hanging leather jackets or pants.
The best way to efficiently learn about your new leather item's care techniques is to ask the store manager or salesperson for specific instructions. Several grades of leather require more specialized maintenance and hence should be cleaned and maintained professionally.

5 Simple Tips to Look Thinner this Summer

| comments

Of course, the best way to look great is to lose the excess weight with the help of a proper diet and exercise program. But there is no reason to put off looking good until you reach your goal weight. All you have to do is make good use of perceptual tricks and make the most of out your shape to create a thinner-looking physique.

Patterns can influence people's perception of your height and weight. A patterned shirt or tie takes the focus off the rest of your body. This helps to downplay a hefty frame or a shorter stature. Dark, solid colors are instant figure fixer and will make you look slimmer. However, avoid bold patterns as they will draw attention to the upper half of your body. 

An important point is to make sure that your clothes fit perfectly. Garments that are too tight will reveal all the spots you would rather not draw attention to. Very loose clothing may hide your problem but it will also make you look larger than you actually are. 

This summer pick up V-neck shirts for the effect of a slimmer neckline. If you have a double chin, V-neck shirt is a great choice as they place emphasis on your chest area instead of on your neck. The best part about summer is that the weather is constantly hot hence the better the reason to dress more in V-neck shirts.

Instead of trousers and jeans that hit your waist, invest in low-rise bottoms that sit on your hips. This is because low-rise trousers have a shorter distance between the top of the waistband and the crotch of your pants than regular trousers. Make note to ensure that the waistband of your pants is large enough to accommodate your midsection so that your belly does not stick out over your pants.

One of the key points to looking thinner is to not carry around excess baggage. Empty your pockets of unnecessary items such as cell phones, overstuffed wallets and electronic devices as they will take the focus off a large midsection. Removing bulky side pockets will also help make your hips appear smaller.

To look like the best version of yourself by playing other perceptual tricks, begin by figuring out what you want to highlight about your body and what you would like to de-emphasize.

Color Trends that You Should Follow in this Spring/Summer

| comments

2011 was definitely the year that menswear began to really accept color. Both the spring/summer and autumn/winter collections in 2011 featured a more vibrant palette for men's dressing. This season, the key color is definitely one of familiarity. Bedrooms and clothing are often splashed in this shade almost as soon as the baby's sex is known. The color in question is the stereotypical boys' color—blue.

The color blue appeals to everyone. Its ever-present nature means it slots into all the major fashion types from preppy to military. A blue piece can be utilized as the statement piece in many ways, from a suit or duffle. It works well with most neutral tones as well as complimenting many other colors such as red and yellow. It is such a versatile color that it is easy to wear.
Brands such as Burberry and Canali gave the color blue a starring spot in their spring/summer 2012 collection.

Nevertheless, a limited palette doesn't have to stop you from looking your best. In fact, mixing varying hues of one color creates a really sharp and put together look. The different shades also demonstrate to the world your ability to create a great outfit out of one color.

When it comes to creating a mono blue ensemble, the best way to begin is with a navy suit. This is because the darker suit allows you to go lighter with your shirt and tie. Opt for a tie that is a shade darker than your shirt but is lighter than your suit for the best effect of a mono color ensemble.

Occasional white in patterns such as checks in your mono color outfit are remarkably well too. However, be noted that if wearing a blue check shirt with a tie, steer clear of ties in any shade of blue. Blue ties would clash with the patterns and make the outfit turn from good to bad. Too much of pattern and color going on in an outfit will just ruin the look. So with that in mind, opt for a pale grey tie instead. The color grey is subtle and neutral enough that it will not throw off your all blue.
It is a relief for those who were cautious towards daring bright colors in menswear. The color blue appeases those who were wary of color while also satisfying those who crave a good statement piece.
