Show your feet some love with an at-home pedicure 

Everyone loves the look and feel of soft, cared-for feet, but it can be easy to let foot care go by the wayside. This is especially true in winter, when you may find your heels and cuticles drier and in need of care after all that time in thick shoes and socks. Luckily you don’t need an expensive and time-consuming trip to a spa; getting salon-perfect results at home is easy. These products may seem run of the mill, but they’ll make self-care a snap any time you need a spa day at home. 



Your feet and toes carry you everywhere and support your frame, often enduring harsh natural conditions, dry weather and aches and pains. With these hardworking tools, you can effectively handle minor problems, reveal healthy skin and maintain your nails from the comfort of home. Maintaining our feet and nails is important, and just like any part of our bodies, paying attention can help find and solve health problems that may have otherwise have gone unnoticed. Just like our hands, hair, and faces, they need attention and care. They’ll definitely thank you.

Deodorant vs. antiperspirant: Which should you use?
A woman deciding between two different deodorants.

Have you walked down the deodorant aisle lately? The choices can be bewildering. How can you know which is best for you? To make things more complicated, you have to decide between deodorant and antiperspirant.
Deodorant vs antiperspirant? Is there a difference? Aren’t those two words the same thing? Well, no. Depending on your body you could need one over the other. If you had no idea that these were two different products, don’t worry. We will sort out the difference between deodorant and antiperspirant.

What it’s for
Deodorant’s purpose is in the name. It’s for your odor. If you have some stinky body odor going on, deodorant is what you need. The chemicals in deodorant make your skin a little acidic so that smelly bacteria don’t want to hang out.
How to use it
For the best results and the smallest chance of still smelling that odor, apply deodorant to clean, completely dry skin. If you think throwing it on right before you walk out the door is how it’s done, think again. You want to put it on when you aren’t going to be getting sweaty. Before bed is best. Give it a chance to start protecting your skin.
Where you can use it
Deodorant isn’t only for your underarms. You can use deodorant on any body part that might cause a stinky stench. The back of your knees, your feet, or even your groin area. Remember the skin "down there" can be sensitive, so if you feel any discomfort at all, be sure to wash the deodorant off immediately.
Our pick
We love Native Coconut & Vanilla Deodorant. Not only is it aluminum-free, but it’s sulfate, paraben, and cruelty-free. The mix of vanilla and coconut is awesome, too. Plus, it is free from plastic packaging.

Gentlemen, we all know that taking care of your skin is a necessity. There is no shame in making an investment in your appearance and overall health! Just bear in mind that it really is an investment as skincare products for men can be on the pricey side. With that said, ensuring that you look good and feel young and fresh doesn't have to break your wallet either.

Men's skincare products like creams, serums, moisturizers, face washes, and cleansers can all be (mostly) affordable. Besides, you don't have to apply all of them every day, so when you splurge on a higher-priced one, you don't have to worry about it running out in just a few weeks.
