Hair has it pretty rough, when it comes to beauty. With all that washing, blow drying and flat ironing, not to mention highlighting and color treatments, it’s no wonder your tired tresses are ready for a trim after six short weeks. If you wait longer, those straggly strands start to rebel. Smooth and shiny becomes frayed and frazzled, making hair harder to style and keep in place. At the bottom of it all—split ends sprout, traveling up the shaft and leading to that look we all dread the most (aaack…not frizz!).
Q. I know I should be exfoliating regularly, but I don’t know much about it. A little guidance, please?

There’s a simple reason why men are slower than women to show signs of aging on their faces: They shave. Yep, that’s right. The act of shaving physically exfoliates the skin, eliminating dead skin cells on the surface, promoting healthy rejuvenation and increasing cellular turnover. The result is smoother, softer, younger-looking skin.

Ever step out of the shower, clean as a whistle, towel off and within minutes your skin feels tight and itchy? Let me guess. You used soap. That trusty, dependable bar that’s been your bath buddy since childhood is somewhat of an enemy now that the rubber ducky is retired and your skin is struggling to stay hydrated as time ticks by.
