Alexandrite a Gem for Kings

Alexandrite is the unique mineral among the other stones which are highly appreciated. Subject to international pricing catalogue, faceted pure 1-3 carat alexandrite from the Urals with the intensive effect of color changing costs from two to twenty thousand dollars per carat, while the less pure alexandrite from the same Urals will take you one to four thousands per carat. A big size stone is rare and if it is worth paying fortunes for something that is not a diamond?


Adriana Lima a Modest Supermodel

It seems that most top models from all over the world correspond to the particular stereotype and life style when their biography is examined. Supermodels are mainly too ambitious women with some delusions of grandeur, though. They aspire to exploit all their beauty and grace gifted by nature, youth when they are fifteen to twenty and the diligence to earn as much money as possible to become the idol for the weaker sex and the object of desire from the stronger sex.


Signet Rings Sign of Reputation and Power

Both men and women are welcome to wear signet rings, though men are more attracted by these jewelry items. Signet ring for women is just the luxury accessory while that for men is the symbol of the particular image and authority.

Men's Skin Care: Essential Basics

Thursday, 12 March 2009

mens skin careI wonder, what a modern man should look like? Should he be strong? Yes, of course. Clever? Naturally. Successful? Surely. And should a modern man be handsome? The threadbare joke about the differeence between the man and the ape is still amusing. However, we, having laughed to our heart's content, return home and turn our delicate cheeks away from our husbands' kisses. Don't scratch me with your nasty stubble, we say. What happened to your lips, we grumble. And take away your hands, they feel like sandpaper, we utter in discontent.

So, dear men, it's high time to shake off that narrow-mindedness and improper prudence. A fear that somebody (what a shame!) should see you using lip balm and draw far-reaching conclusions about your sexual orientation is nothing but a complex. A complex of inferiority and lack of confidence. Or a fear of latent (hidden) homosexuality.

In the modern world, success and skin care go hand in hand. It's rather difficult to imagine a successful, self-confident businessman with oily thin hair, powdered with scurf flakes, with skin irritation on the face and deep canyons on the lips. A successful man has no choice but to take care of his looks or give up on himself.

And if you, dear men, decided to adopt the thought that ‘a man of business must nonetheless take care of his nails', you should enter into some nuances.

So, first of all, borrowing your wife's ‘cream in that nice opaque jar' is a very bad idea. And why, you wonder?

As many of you might have noticed, men and women are quite different. And be assured, on the cell level this difference is manifested more clearly than it is in the kitchen. Men and women have different metabolism and different hormones. Even our skin has very little in common!

Men's skin has:

  • firmer upper (dermal) layer of skin;
  • epiderm densely lined with oblong cells;
  • little subdermal fat deposits;
  • more enduring connective tissues

On the one hand, these differences give a number of advantages to the representatives of the stronger sex. For example, men never have cellulite or stretch marks. Their skin ages less rapidly than women's skin. However, men are not so lucky as they seem to be. They have quite a lot of their own problems that often are more seriously manifested. The tenderness of minor blood vessels which gives the face that unhealthy bluish hue, overfunction of the oil glands which causes seborrheic dermatitis and  excessive sweating - yes, dear men, it's all about you. And something else: naturally, men age less rapidly that women. But the process is practically irreversible - oops, and the picture in your driver's license looks fifteen years younger than the person in the driver's seat. And your wrinkles are much deeper, and your skin sags and that sight is far from being pleasant. How unlucky you are, you poor things.

Having analyzed these problems and quite specific needs of men, many leading make-up and skin care products manufacturers developed and introduced skin care product lines specifically targeted for men twenty years ago. And, as you understand, they are different not only by their fragrance.

Thus, make-up and skin care products for men (like those for women) can be divided into the following categories:

  • special cleansing products for men: toilet soap, shower gel, cleansing towels and shampoos (you shouldn't forget about the acid-base balance that has become a touchy issue);
  • before and after shave skin care products: shaving gel/foam/cream, aftershave lotion or gel (the ingredients depend on the skin type);
  • perfumes: antiperspirant, eau de toilette or eau de cologne (which are used along with and not instead of cleansing products);
  • facial skin care products: toning lotions, moisturizing day cream, nourishing night cream, scrubs (it's all about knowing how to use them sparingly);
  • foot skin care products: scrubs, moisturizing antibacterial creams, deodorants and antiperspirants;
  • protective skin care products: hand creams, sunscreen, lip balm.

Naturally, most of the skin care products for the beloved men can be replaced by universal ones, targeted for the entire family, except for the specific products like shaving foam or aftershave lotion. However, you need to remember that all the products marked ‘for Men' are developed specifically for you, taking into consideration your needs, moods and differences.

Corrective Lingerie the Sculptor of your Shapes

The news is not the corrective lingerie with the effect to make the shapes tighter and slimmer. When considering the images of women back in XIX-XX centuries, we can state some peculiarities typical to the woman silhouette, like the high bosom, thin waist, rounded thighs (or just the skirt creating this false impression). Recollecting the canons of women beauty which were far from the skinny shapes of some mature women, we realize that a lady looked shapely in one area and slim in the other thanks to the special lingerie.
