Risks and Reasons to not make use of Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery


The use of plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery to alter the appearance of men, women and more and more young adults are escalating.  There are people that see this as a reflection of our modern culture of trying to stay young and beautiful for all time.  Others embrace it as an opportunity to prolong the appearance of health and vitality.

More refined, safer and affordable techniques are developed daily which will mean more cosmetic procedures performed daily.  An ongoing fascination with reality Television makeovers and the popularization of cosmetic procedures makes it clear that Cosmetic Procedures are here to stay.


It is important to consider not just the physical consequences but also the psychological effects of cosmetic and plastic surgery.  Two important issues need to be considered by persons considering a surgery.  Firstly, the immediate emotional concerns faced by patients opting to surgically alter their physical appearance and secondly, the farther reaching concern of dealing with people’s reactions after the fact.

Reasons not to consider Plastic or Cosmetic Surgery

Do not decide on Plastic or Cosmetic surgery to please someone else.  Seek plastic surgery for you.  Surgery will not change a relationship or save a marriage.  Cosmetic surgery should be for yourself to feel better in changing something you are not happy about in your appearance.

Surgery is not a quick fix to lose weight.  Plastic surgery is not a weight loss procedure.  A sensible, healthy diet and exercise will do wonders in losing weight.

Think twice before deciding on a procedure because it is the latest fashion.  Fashions change.

Too much of a good thing can turn out to be not so good.  You might just always feel that something is not yet as perfect as you’d hoped it to be.

You think that plastic surgery is no big deal and can easily be done.  This is not true.  It is still a surgical procedure and any surgery comes with some risks.  There usually is a recovery time afterwards as with any surgical procedures.

Plastic Surgery and Cosmetic Surgery is an important decision that can be incredibly fulfilling when done for the right reasons and performed by an excellent plastic surgeon.


Cosmetics for Men: Tips on Using Makeup to Enhance Facial Appearance


Cosmetics are substances or products to alter or enhance the appearance of the face and body.  Egyptian Men and Women were very fond of eyeliner and eye shadows in dark colours.  Ancient Sumerian Men and Women were possibly the first to invent lipstick.  The Ancient Greeks also used cosmetics, as did the Ancient Romans.  In all these early days Men and Women are mentioned in wearing cosmetics.

In modern times, Women are well adapted in the use of cosmetics, Men not so much.  The reality is that Men do wear cosmetics.  You just don’t know it.  There is proof that makeup is for everyone to enjoy and more and more men make that discovery.


Trying makeup for the first time can be a baffling experience.  You do not need to apply a full face.  Men usually go for a natural look.  When applied correctly, nobody will be able to tell that you are wearing makeup.

The Best Makeup Products for Men

  1. Concealer is the most popular makeup item amongst men. It gives a natural look and can also be used to cover spots, dark circles under the eyes, bags and puffiness.  Choose a shade closest to your skin tone.
  2. Bronzer will give a slightly heavier coverage of your skin. This will leave your skin with a healthy-looking, natural glow and an even, tanned finish.
  3. Foundation will cover uneven skin tone without being obvious. For better coverage use it together with a concealer.
  4. Eyebrow Pencil. You can use this for other areas than the eyebrows, too.  Fill in any sparse areas of facial hair.
  5. Makeup Remover. At the end of the day, it is important to remove any makeup that you applied during the day.  Your skin needs to breathe and rest throughout the night in order to stay healthy.

Makeup begins with skin care and should be used to enhance natural features and beauty.  We do not call men Beautiful.  They rather prefer the term, Handsome.  Both words describe something enjoyable to look at, where the saying goes: “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.”  If cosmetics can enhance the handsome, it should be done.…

Skincare Tips for Healthy Looking Facial Skin

Skin Problems and Skin Care is not only limited to women.  New state-of-the-art technologies are getting great results with treating men’s skin problems.  Scars, inflamed acne, signs of ageing, excess hair, bumps and more can leave a man feeling uncomfortable and self-conscious.

For the more persistent problems, the new state of the art technologies can be used, for instance, excessive hair removal through laser hair removal treatments, or Carbon Dioxide Therapy to treat scarring, acne nodules, circles under the eyes and much more.

But for normal everyday skin care, the following tips will go a long way to uncomplicated the whole process.

5 Tips to Simplify Taking Care of Daily Skincare for Men

  1. Use a good facial cleanser: Do not use harsh soaps or too coarse face scrubs.  This dries out skin and will make you look much older.  Rather use a gentle cleanser that will feed the skin while cleansing it.
  2. Do not use cheap razors: Buying a quality razor that can be a lifetime item, will go a long way in protecting your skin.  Choose the razor to fit your skin’s sensitivity and beard coarseness.  A moisturizing shaving gel will provide a protecting barrier while shaving.
  3. Make your new best friend your after-shave: After-shave soothes and hydrates the skin and also seals the skin after your shave.  Choose an alcohol-free after-shave.  Alcohol dries out your skin.
  4. Do not skip a nourishing facial moisturiser: Moisturising daily will get your skin soft and kissable.  There are fragrance-free products that won’t have your smelling girly.
  5. Always apply sunscreen when going out into the sun: Some facial moisturisers contain a sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher.  That will be efficient.  Damage by the sun can result in redness or irritation of the skin, and can also cause skin cancer.  Applying sunscreen can keep you looking younger for longer.

These tips will help all men to keep up with a daily skin care routine.  Remember to always choose natural products that will help improve your skin’s health.…
