There are some certain fashion items every man must have in his wardrobe no matter how rich or poor or irrespective social class you belong to, you don’t have to be ver rich to have these fashion items as you can easily get cheap but classy ones the most important thing is for you to have those items in your wardrobe.

Below are some fashion must-have for every man whether stylish or not.

Native Attire: “It is important to have at least one native attire in your wardrobe as a man because apart from the fact that it reflects your roots, there will always be an occasion that would require you to wear a native attire which is why it is important you have one or two native attire in your wardrobe”.

Quality wristwatch: “It’s awkward to always have to pull out your phone to check the time, having a wristwatch is not only fashionable but also comes with its usefulness just imagine a cute lady you got your eyes on asks you for the time and you simply pull back your sleeves and reveal a classy choice of watch before revealing the time to her, this can make a whole lot of difference”.

A sleek leather wallet: “The wallet helps to keep your cash and ATM cards handy and as such is a must-have fashion accessory that every man should own, leather wallets are great for both formal and casual attires and whether you choose a black or brown coloured wallet, it blends in and never goes out of fashion”.

Suit: “It is important that you have at least one bespoke suit for whatever corporate event you will be attending, even if you hardly attend events that require you wear a suit, still get one as it’s embarrassing to appear at formal events in casual wears”.

A Tie: “You’d require ties to go along with your suit, it’s essential you have a variety of ties but going for a solid tie would do you a lot of good but remember to go for trendy styles and colours if you wear ties on a regular basis”.

Shoes and belts: “This might be perhaps the greatest fashion mishap men make by mismatching the colour of their belt with that of their shoes, wearing black shoes and a black belt is a fashion fundamental and will complete your suave look for any occasion, be it casual or formal and as such you should have a pair of black leather shoes and a black leather belt”.

Jeans: “Blue jeans are a classic item you should have in your wardrobe, the colour looks good irrespective of the age of the jeans added to the fact that they are comfortable, versatile and can be combined with an array of shoes from sneakers to sandals, or loafers to provide a great sporty look”.

Casual Shirt: “It is essential to have Casual shirts such as a polo or button down in your wardrobe, they can go well with jeans or other casual chinos trousers”.

Perfume/Body spray: “Want to smell good?then get yourself a bottle of perfume, roll-on and body spray that smells cool and lasts longer and they will help to alleviate body odours that are common to the male species”.

Beauty Hacks To Get That Face Glow

a natural face

When it comes to our beauty routine,we are always looking for that one style hack that will keep our face glowing in a natural irresistible manner.

Taking care of your skin can be a big investment, so we’re always down for tricks that don’t take a big bite out of our paychecks. Which is what led us here

Give Yourself a Facial Massage
Got puffy eyes? No problem. Sure, you could stock up on eye cream…or you could use your fingers to give yourself an under-eye massage. “Use your ring fingers to press gently on the orbital bone, moving from the inner to outer corner of your eyes and repeating two to three times,” says celebrity facialist Cecilia Wong. “This will not only stimulate circulation, but it also helps minimize fine lines and reduce inflammation.

Wash Your Hands
…And not only after you go to the bathroom.”Your hands are covered in tons of bacteria from touching doorknobs, keyboards, etc.,” says celebrity esthetician Joanna Vargas. “When you touch your face, you’re spreading that bacteria to your skin, which then can trigger breakouts and other skin problems.” If you don’t have easy access to a sink but know your hands are grimy (i.e. you just got off the subway) at least make your face a hands-free zone.

Cleanse Your Skin From the Inside
“Squeeze fresh lemon into a mug full of hot water and drink when you wake up,” says Rouleau, adding that you can always sub in lemon juice. “This helps flush out and purify the body internally, potentially reducing toxins and bacteria in the small intestine that can lead to acne.”

Make a DIY Peel
Homemade masks are a dime a dozen, but homemade peels? Not so much. This one, a favorite of celebrity facialist Georgia Louise, requires a few household staples: baking soda, water, and a splash of lemon juice. Mix two teaspoons of baking soda with one teaspoon of water, and squeeze in a little lemon juice. Apply it to your face and let it dry for five minutes before rinsing with water. Allot another five minutes for checking out your newly radiant skin.

Drink Water:

As we know there are many health benefits of drinking water and juices, one of the best is to help your skin to purify the impurities, and glowing skin tips are incomplete without the inclusion of this essential point. Water cleanses the body and eliminates the toxins and waste

  • Use natural herbal products for your face
  • Avoid bleaching creams and lotions with too much chemicals
  • Add salt to your facial scrub
  • Always clean off your makeup before you sleep
  • Let your face breathe!! Makeup should not be an everyday thing,try to go natural once in a while
  • Do not take oily products in excess;its bad for your skin and health in general

This is what we have for now. To be continued…

How To Be The Dapper Breathtaking Man

Screenshot_2017-01-06-21-56-47

When it comes to fashion, it seems like we always want more, more, more. Remember that it’s about quality, not quantity. Most guys don’t have the time to do a major wardrobe transformation so we have a few grooming tips and fashion hacks on how to get the most out of what you purchase or what you may already own. Read on for 10 fashion hacks you need in your life.

  • Throw out old clothes; there is no need to keep wearing worn out,faded or torn clothes. It gives off the wrong impression.

 

  • Get a hair cut: if it’s too rough,it is definitely not sexy. Let it go. Find a haircut that suits your face and go have that talk with your barber. There is no point in being well dressed with an unkempt hair.

 

  • Always iron your clothes,crispy is classy.

 

  • Get a manicure,I mean,get rid of those dirty nails. You are not a caveman

 

  • If you want to maintain facial hair,keep it trim and proper. It’s sexier that way

 

  • Have at least 3 corporate wears. You never know when you might need it

 

  • Wear cologne. This is very essential. Personally,I feel that your bathing soap and lotion leaves a lasting scent but to enhance this,you can use a cologne but remember,less is more

 

  • Own good shoes. Don’t go overboard by being too colorful. A pair of black shoes or two is good enough.

 

  • Be careful on how you dress for an occasion.Every occasion has its own dress code so you need to be careful on how to dress for it to avoid being the odd one out. Remember that there is a difference between standing out and being the odd one.

 

  • Avoid the ‘one size fits all’ syndrome. The beauty of any outfit is in the fitting. Don’t get it too big or too small. Get it to be just right,perfectly tailored.

10 Natural Hair Hacks Every Girl Should Know

nairaland

Your natural hair can be such a task most times.Whether you are a pro or a new natural, here are some hacks you can use the next time your hair gives you a hard time.  Some of these tips are common knowledge, while others are life hacks you never thought of. Either way, this is an easy list that you can keep in mind for future reference.

1.Wash and style your hair in sections so that it is not overwhelming.Detangle your hair under running water with loads of conditioner. The weight of the water and the slip of the conditioner will make detangling much easier.
2.  Detangle your hair from end to root NOT root to end.
3.  Don’t let your hair shrink and tangle during the wash process. Wash your hair in braided  sections. You can unravel the braid, wash and rebraid to really get to all of your hair strands.
4.  DON’T make circular motions while washing your hair… unless you want tangles. Scrub your scalp and let the shampoo run down the hair shaft.
5.  Hair conditioner doesn’t have enough slip? Add a few drops of your favorite carrier oil for more slip.
6.  Want to avoid frizz when drying your hair? Trade in your towel for an old t-shirt

7.  Deep condition you hair with heat for maximum conditioning and moisture payoff.
8.  Looking for an alternative for those “homely” looking headwraps at night. Try a satin pillowcase!

9.No conditioner? If you have mayonnaise, extra virgin olive oil, and raw coconut oil, then you have all of the ingredients for the perfect deep conditioner. Nautural hair YouTuber, Razorempress has an excellent tutorial on how to mix it up. You might even end up using this conditioner on a regular basis

10.When you’ve run out of shampoo, apple cider vinegar and baking soda will get your hair clean. Mix one part baking soda with three parts water and apply to your scalp. After rinsing, mix one part apple cider vinegar with 4 parts water and apply to hair and scalp. Rinse with cold water to seal in moisture.

Here’s an extra one. If you’ve run out of your favorite detangler, use aloe vera gel.
