Men’s styling and grooming by Yatan Ahluwalia: All is well
Decode the look of lead
Hair: Medium length on the top and short on the sides. We used the powerful Dyson Supersonic hairdryer on damp hair to style it and give it the required shape, volume, texture and volume. The stylish, multi-functional hair dryer prevents damage from extreme heat and protects the hair’s natural hydration and shine, making it ideal for use even on a daily basis.
Eyebrows: Defined and narrow.
Face: Good fair skin. We applied Cetaphil Daily Advance Ultra Moisturizing Lotion to nourish the skin. The moisturizer keeps the skin hydrated for almost 24 hours, leaving it looking soft and healthy.
Lips: Cool and thick lips. We used Pilgrim’s Red Vine Lip Balm to soften the lips and give them a bit of shine.
Other: Crisp white cotton shirt with a two-tone collar.
Care and well-being
Men’s well-being is not limited to spa therapy, meditation, the use of candles or piped music. Wellness covers your mind, body and all senses of sound, sight, touch, smell and sensation.
Well-being of the mind is more than just mental health. It is positivity, attitude and an integral part of any wellness experience. Mental wellness greatly influences all other areas of a wellness lifestyle.
Men cry, men feel, men think, men worry, and men have extreme emotions too. Getting in touch, accepting, sharing, analyzing and showing your feelings is therefore extremely important and a great release of energy, the effects of which are instantly manifested on your body.
My well-being advice: Think positive thoughts, because what we feel on the inside always reflects our outward appearance.
Each of our five senses contributes to well-being. Listening to touch, taste, smell, sound and sight can unlock answers within ourselves. They can also help guard you against dangerous decisions and affect how you feel and, therefore, how you prepare.
Smell helps you choose the right scent and choose the right product. The sense of touch lets you know how a product feels on your skin or hair and the sense of sight lets you appreciate your appearance.
My well-being advice: When we are in tune with our senses, we learn to see right from wrong.
Wellness for the body includes what you eat, drink and consume and is much more than what you see on the surface. It greatly contributes to the way you feel, look and how your body functions.
It is extremely important to eat as much “real” and “natural” food as possible. Organic foods and snacks are always better than those that are not.
My well-being advice: Eating a good, balanced, chemical-free diet will not only help your body, but will also do wonders for your skin and hair.
Five benefits of using natural and organic products for your skin and hair:
1. Using natural and organic skincare products can reduce skin irritation, prevent allergies, and (normally) not cause unwanted reactions or harmful side effects.
2.Natural and organic products are time tested. Many of the ingredients that are included in modern organic skincare products have been used for centuries, developed from ancient remedies known for their incredible health benefits.
3.If you don’t eat it, don’t put it on your skin! Our skin is very absorbent and when you use products like moisturizers, cleansers and toners, the ingredients in them are absorbed by our body. Chemical toxins are very destructive whereas natural products, which are made from extracts of flowers and plants, are designed to nourish our bodies and normally only do good.
4.Organic and natural skin care products are very cost effective compared to their unnatural alternatives, especially since the quality of the ingredients means you can use less, which means the product will last longer in the skin. time. While some chemical-based products can be cheaper, you end up using a lot – applying layer after layer of moisturizer while your skin is still dry, so you have to buy more and cost more in the long run. term. Classes.
5. Using natural and organic products is much better for the environment.
Grooming products that contain chemicals can have a very damaging impact on the environment, the sprays and scents that are released into the atmosphere can be very harmful, as well as the manufacturing process that takes place to create them. If you use natural and organic skincare products, not only will you reap the benefits of beautiful skin, but you can also enjoy them without harming the environment.
