Unfortunately, the fountain of youth does not exist but there are other ways to fight signs of aging. Eating healthy foods, working-out regularly and drinking plenty of water are some of the many things I've learned from my boyfriend. He is very disciplined when it comes to his eating habits/fitness routine and I'm totally NOT! Over the span of our relationship I've managed to drop the 15 lbs I gained when we met in college and maintain them off simply by making healthier choices. Although I do not hit the gym everyday like he does, I do try to incorporate as much physical activity as possible on a daily basis (I wonder if shopping counts? lol) I take the stairs instead of the elevator/escalator, walk around during my lunch hour, dance while I'm cooking and I run around with Brooklyn (my dog).
Monday through Friday we eat chicken breast and fish. It gets repetitive so I makes things a little interesting by looking up recipes online to switch things up a bit. One of my favorite recipes is baked lemon chicken breast, it's so yummy and good for you! We have all of our meals with water, there are so many calories and preservatives in juice and soda that it's just not worth it. Plus, we all need to drink water to keep our body working properly. A common recommendation is to drink six to eight 8-ounces of water every day.
A healthy appearance is not only about the inside; skincare is also essential in maintaining a youthful look. This is something I've been teaching the beau about because he tends to neglect his skin. I always tell him that it's important to exfoliate, moisturize and protect his skin, especially his face. He likes to use my products because they're easily accessible but now he has his own little collection thanks to Neutrogena Men. The new line consists of: Neutrogena Men Sensitive Skin Shave Cream, Neutrogena Men Invigorating Face Wash, Neutrogena Razor Defense Face Scrub and Neutrogena Men Triple Defense Face Lotion with Sunscreen. You're probably thinking, what's so special about this collection? Well for starters it's specifically formulated for men's skin and it caters to men with sensitive skin (perfect for preventing razor irritation and minimizing cuts). The products are formulated with soy and a soothing anti-irritant blend that works to soften both beard and skin, providing a close shave and making skin less prone to irritation.
After a hard day at work and the gym I know my muscle man needs an effective daily facial cleanser. He's been using the Neutrogena Men Invigorating Face Wash for the past few weeks and he loves it! The oil-free face wash cleans deep down to the pores -- leaving his skin feeling invigorated, fresh and clean for hours. It has also helped his skin look healthier and moisturized.
If you're looking to get that special guy in your life to start thinking about skin care, I would highly recommend you get him the Neutrogena Men line of skin-soothing products.
