Has Your Significant Other Been Dipping into Your Bronzer?
Men’s grooming products have been around for years, but the choices have been confined mostly to hair and shaving products. The original Brylcreem (a little dab’ll do ya) was created in the 1920s to keep shiny hair in place. A decade later, Old Spice cologne was introduced with a nautical theme to appeal to the strapping sailor in every man.
Hair and shaving products are still top sellers today, but bronzer is one of the standout products for the growing male cosmetics market. If your guy has been putting on too much mancake lately, show him the ropes when it comes to getting that natural, sporty glow.
First, explain the types of bronzers that are available exclusively for men. Bronzers for men are available in different formulations, from self-tanning gel to powders with brushes. Both suit men because they deposit a natural color and address the skin issues that men face like dryness and irritation.
Clinique Non-Streak Bronzer for Men, an oil-free gel, provides a gradual healthy glow rather than a heavy, baked look.
Since this bronzer is water proof, lanky swimmers can also take a dip in the ocean or shower without worrying about washing it off.
Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder for Men leaves a matte and natural finish. Although manly men may shy away from powder at first, Guerlain has designed a modern, black package that conveniently stores both the powder and brush. Compared to gel, using a soft brush to apply bronzing powder also lets your guy easily control the darkness of his tan.
Finally, show your man how to apply bronzer (it does not require a mechanical engineering degree). Bronzing gel or powder should be lightly applied to areas where the sun hits the face, like the cheekbones and the bridge of the nose. Bronzer should also be extended past the jaw line to avoid a sudden change of color from the face to the neck.
Unless your man wants to look like an aging movie star or waxy politician, remind him that a little bronzer goes a long way when it comes to looking tanned and healthy.x
