Men of Menscience: U.S Marines 1st Lieutenant Richard Adams

For our "Men of Menscience" series, we would like to take a moment to highlight another notable man that is doing great things and is doing them with style. U.S. Marines 1st Lieutenant Richard Adams is one of the many young individuals that make up this country's heroic military. His sacrifice - and the myriad sacrifices of others - is an exceptional demonstration of determination, dedication and passion.

Adams is a 25 year-old Naval Aviator who is "livin' the dream." With a promising future in the military and a passion for flying, Adams has been interested in all things mechanical from a young age. He loves commanding a vehicle and grew up in an F-15 flight path which culminated in high-school flight lessons. "I was in the cockpit of a private plane before I could drive a car. It was very cool. When it came time to decide what I wanted to do for a career, it was a natural choice to want to fly for the military" he says.

After completing Officer Training in Quantico, VA during college, Adams went through extensive flight instruction and is now in the final stages of intense classroom and hands-on training specific to helicopters. He's prepping to earn his wings in 2010.

Once Adams earns his wings he’ll be flying solo. The purpose of a Marine aviator is to provide support for troops on the ground which is something Adams finds fulfilling. He says “It’s satisfying to contribute and make a difference on the battlefield.”

While on-duty, Adams' day often begins as early as 3:30 am in order to report to work by 4:30 or 5:00 am. With long days that include pre-flight briefings, the flight itself, and then a debriefing, maintaining a workout program can prove difficult. "I run a lot because it’s quick, easy, and effective" Adams says. While working out, Adams concentrates on endurance and strengthening exercises, he adds "Core muscle building and cardio are my focus. I run 3 miles every other day and add in weight training where I can." Being physically fit is not a vanity for the military. In fact, it becomes extremely important when dealing with the grueling conditions of battle.

Like most things, grooming and hygiene are taken very seriously in the military and they must be done efficiently. Personnel are expected to look their best. Marines are expected to shave daily, keep their hair short and maintain a hygiene routine. The strict rules dictating military personnel’s appearances are designed to command respect and uphold the integrity of the uniform.

At times, it's even necessary to shower more than once a day, Adams says "We touch and feel the aircraft…that means you get hydraulic fluid, oil, even jet fuel on your skin. Washing is constant." All those harsh chemicals and all that washing can leave skin dry and irritated making it important to find an effective skincare routine and quality products. A mini-facial using a clay face mask can be a quick and easy way to remove build-up and dirt after a long day of flying. Additionally, for individuals that are constantly assailed by the elements, the use of sunscreen can prevent skin problems.

Adams' pride in his chosen career is evident when he says "The core values of the Marines are summed up in our motto, Semper Fidelis. Literally, it means 'always faithful'. The values of honor, courage, and commitment are something that we live by and I’m proud of that. I'm happy that I get to do something I enjoy while contributing to the greater good of the country."

At Menscience, we're proud that individuals throughout the nation have dedicated themselves to the U.S. military and to the security of this nation and the pursuit of freedom. Their role is indispensable, their risks are great and, as such, we would like to express our utmost gratitude.

Choosing Men Skin Care Products 101

If you're like most of us men, trying to figure out which skin care products are right for your skin can become a hellish task with so many options in stores today. How do you know what men's skin care products you should get? A lot of men are struggling with this and end up filling their cabinets with a bunch of fancy bottles that won't help take serious care of their skin. Here's a 101 guide to choosing the best men's skin care product for you.

Read the ingredients label

This is the key to choosing the right men skin care products. We normally think that our skin (men's skin) can take anything -- so any product will do. And if they're expensive, than they'll probably work. Let's think again.

Most men's skin care products in the market can actually damage your skin, as a lot of them are formulated with ingredients that irritate, clog and dehydrate your skin. This is very important because if use products that irritate our skin, the natural cell growth will be reduced, giving us an unhealthy complexion. Here is a checklist of these harmful skin ingredients:

- Alcohol: It contributes to dehydration, kills live cells, and alters the skin's delicate biological balance.

- Fatty acids and vegetable oils: Commonly used moisturizing oils clog pores, trap bacteria and prevent the natural shedding of dead cells. Only use oil-free or light moisturizers for all skin types.

- Fragrance and coloring: Fragrances and dyes tend to cause irritation and may produce allergic reactions when absorbed by the skin.

- Botanicals: Not all “natural” ingredients are beneficial. Some commonly used plant extracts, such as menthol, peppermint and citrus oils, are powerful substances that are better kept away from your skin.

What's your skin type?
Most products target several individual skin types: oily skin, dry skin, sensitive skin, acne-prone skin and combination skin. However, if you find men's skin care products free of added fragrances or dyes, alcohol, and that are hypoallergenic and nonacnegenic, then you won't really have to worry about your skin type.

Slowly build your skincare regimen
Think about what men skin care products you want to start with, and try them progressively. So, let's say you decide to start off with a gentle facial cleanser and an oil-free moisturizer; find the right ones for you and use them for a couple of weeks before you go and expose your face to full skincare routine. By starting with basic items, you'll always the best results. Once your skin has adapted to the professional skin care ingredients, it'll be ready for more targeted products.

As you build your skincare regimen, consider including a maximum protection sunscreen, as well as wrinkles and anti-aging products. Once again, try new products gradually and give them enough time -- about 2 weeks -- to see actual results.
If you follow these simple guidelines, you are guaranteed to find the right men skin care products for yourself.

Get Your Wow Skincare Product

A lot of men still think that skin care is predominantly a feminine thing and suddenly they try a face wash out of their girlfriend's cabinet: "Wow, this is actually better than my dove bar." Some guys who have tried advanced skincare products from others end up getting themselves vetoed from their bathrooms by their roommates, while other men eventually make the leap to start taking serious care of their skin and body.

Although there are reputable skin care lines for men that sell different grooming products, you have to keep in mind that there are many elements to consider for your skin before spending any cash in men's skincare products. So, here are some ways on how you can choose the right skin care product without spending any money.

For starters, you need to figure out your skin type; there are products for different skin types that depending on yours can give that Wow result. Some products like MenScience can be used for all skin types, benefiting everyone with the same results.

Figuring out what you'd like to fix, or if you simply want to start nurturing and protecting your skin is a key. This could help you put together the right skincare routine for your complexion.

Ingredients are another important factor to keep in mind when it comes to getting the most for your money. Finding products with gentle and soothing ingredients that can help your skin renew its complexion is vital when it comes to getting a wow skin care product.

Some skin care lines for men are in much demand because of their price-point; however, the ingredients used in some of these products generally will not help achieve any satisfactory results. If you choose this particular route, make sure to read the labels to find out how each component reacts on your skin.

MenScience offers FREE samples so you can experience advanced skincare with professional-grade ingredients for visible results without blowing any cash. Once you try them, you'll be able to WOW your skin.

We hope these "Wow Skincare Products" tips help! This is a great way for any man to try the best skin care products scientifically formulated for them.

Wishing for Better Men's Body Lotions?


WISHING FOR A GOOD MEN'S BODY LOTION? Women are constantly slathering the stuff all over their body... From an orange mango surprise to berry, cherry and cream-puff pie, the sweet smelling, fruity flavors of citrus, cinnamon and vanilla fill the lotion aisles. While women's stores have innumerable scent varieties to choose from in a vast amount of consistencies, men are left to scamper among the drugstore cheap-o varieties to find something that doesn't make them smell or feel like a sparkley 12-year-old donning a cinnamon bun.

MenScience originated to cater to men's skincare, nutritional and grooming needs, helping with a variety of common skincare needs-like the formulation of the bestselling MenScience Advanced Face Lotion. It took us years to develop, but listening to your feedback, we've achieved a perfectly balanced, high-performance moisturizer for men. The ultralight, oil-free formula absorbs immediately and leaves a natural, invisible matte finish.

MenScience has stepped up to fill the dearth of body lotions, too. We're going to create a new body lotion that is perfect for men... but we need your feedback. All MenScience products are non-comedogenic, so don't worry about that, but tell us, if you were to create the perfect body lotion, what would it be like? Would it be creamy and thick? Would it be light and smooth easily over skin? Would it have a scent or be fragrance free? Would it be creamy or leave a sheen? Would it be oil-free?

Speak up - We want and need to know what you think about men's body lotions!

Stop Men's Skin Care Disasters Now!

Obviously most of our efforts are dedicated to bring into focus to the right audience the right men's skin care information for the right season. Other men's skin care blogs, many of whom work write endlessly trying to help consumers choose the right products, face many challenges.

Third-party sites or distributors are often forced into difficult situations helping disoriented customers. What if you were the one on that side, trying to make a decision on a product? We've spent the last few months talking to skin care consumers about their daily needs and frustrations in order to come up with a few best skin care practices and identify problematic skin types. Here's a mix of that conversation.

Skin Type Classification Syndrome (STCS)

The STCS brand of wicked is easily identified as the "noob" with a passion for confusing well-read consumers. The "noob" is not to be confused by the other form of new player in the men's skin care world, "newb," who actually has intentions of improving their skin and look.

Classifying your skin type is the first step to finding the right products for you. Most products target several individual skin types: oily skin, dry skin, sensitive skin, acne-prone skin and combination skin.

Oily skin: Feels slightly greasy or slick to the touch, with larger pores. It is usually more prone to blackheads and whiteheads. Look for products that are ultralight and oil-free, and exfoliating items that will remove oil and dirt.

Dry skin: Often feels tight and itchy and is more prone to irritations. Look for products that contain hydrating ingredients like Aloe, Urea and Allantoin, and pay special attention to moisturizers. Keep in mind that moisture is not the same thing as oil, so you don't need heavy, oily products to achieve good levels of hydration for your skin.

Sensitive skin: Easily irritated by skincare or shaving products or extreme weather conditions. Look for products that do not contain dyes, fragrances or irritants and are specially formulated for sensitive skin.

Normal skin: If haven't had any reoccurring skin problems such as shininess, acne or irritated skin, you probably have normal skin. Unless a product states otherwise, most skincare items can be used by men with normal skin.

Combination skin: Most men fall into this category, having dry patches and oily patches on their face at the same time (oily patches often fall in the “T-Zone”: your forehead and down your nose to your chin). Look for products that gently clean skin without harsh abrasives and moisturizers that are ultralight.

Acne-prone skin: Can partner with oily skin, but is also a factor with people with dry skin. This type tends to break out frequently with pimples, blackheads or whiteheads. Look for products that are noncomedgenic (not pore-clogging) and contain ingredients like benzoyl peroxide.

Ill-informed Skincare Product Expert (ISPE)

Similar to the STCS entry, the ISPE is identified by making nutty decisions armed with enough information to be dangerous. For example, the ISPE may say something like, "My brother-in-law knows all about that skin care stuff, so I can help you."

According to many of the experts I spoke with, said brother-in-law is so poorly equipped to handle anything men's skincare related, he often causes nearly irreparable damage with his "advice," and the men's skin care customer spends more time doing damage control than achieving results.

Counteracting the effects on an ISPE can be pretty simple. Zero in on your skin type, and concentrate on finding products that appeal to that type, or products recommended for all skin types. And although there's still a sea of products out there, you can decide which you need and which ones are nothing more than fancy packaging by starting with the basic skin care routine that involves four steps: Cleaning, Exfoliating, Shaving, and Moisturizing.

That means you should look for a gentle liquid cleanser for your face, an exfoliating scrub, a shaving product, an aftershave product and an oil-free moisturizer. Trust us, you can't really go wrong.

Screwball Customer Meltdown (SCM)

The SCM is an affliction of the highest order that affects many men's skin care industry folks who are either duped by customers with specific needs or have customers forced upon them by ISPEs.

SCM is a progressive disorder that usually cannot be treated with early detection. Those affected by the SCM often don't see it coming. The consumers often bypass the men's skin care experts and consistently attempt to undermine their efforts by abandoning contact protocols. They reach out to ISPEs directly and pile on unrealistic expectations, armed with misinformation.

There are few effective treatments for SCM, though the disorder has been linked to causative factors associated with the creation of ISPEs.

Men's Skin Care Hater (MSCHMr)

The MSCHMr spends all of his time reading Men's Skin Care blogs and attempts to circumvent the efforts of manufacturers everywhere. The MSCHMr views everything manufacturers does as evil, and this psychosis has bled into other areas of his or her life.

The best way to counter the MSCHMr is to stay on top of the information produced by the MenScience team, cross referencing the information with your own logical conclusions, and citing that information in each skin care need.

And, It Continues to Happen

The men's skin care world is changing but not as quickly as we would like it to. Believe it or not, we still get calls from customers asking for advice on the best "Men's Skin Care Product."

"Men's Skin Care?" Nice one. While I am at it, I usually also pass along MenScience's phone number and url, just in case.

At the end of the day, all you need to do is narrow down what types of products you should be using, and how to apply your core men's skin care products.

The Dangers of Bacteria to Men's Health


There's been a lot of talk lately about the threat of bacteria to men's bodies and with good cause: more and more cases of bacteria-related deaths, such as those caused by staph infections and MRSA bacteria, are surfacing every day. To make matters even tricker, some strains of bacteria are becoming resistant to antibiotics due to overuse and over-prescription.

So how to stay healthy? Simple: keep your skin clean, wounds covered and your hands to yourself!

1. Wash your body regularly with an antibacterial body wash. This will immediately kill bacteria you accumulate through the day or after working out.

2. Wash hands frequently using hot water and an antibacterial cleanser, especially before meals. Be sure to wash them for at least 15 seconds and rub them vigorously to make sure all containments are rinsed away.

3. Using an antibacterial gel can also cut down on bacteria for times when you can't get to a sink, but keep in mind they should not be relied on for regular cleansing.

4. Completely cover all cuts, sores, scrapes and open wounds with clean bandages.

5. When working out at a gym, be sure to wipe down all equipment with a clean towel before use, even if it does not appear to be sweaty.

6. Don't share towels, razors or any other items which come in direct contact with skin.

7. Reduce the spread of bacteria by washing workout clothes and towels with hot water as soon as possible after use, and drying them completely. Never reuse socks, clothes or towels from a previous day's workout.

8. Boost your immune system by taking a nutritional supplement that contains antioxidants such as Vitamin C. This will help improve your chances of warding off a possible infection.

Acne: Not Just for Kids Anymore

Acne continues to be a major problem for men, one that reaches well past the teenage years. In a poll conducted by MenScience:
  • 61% of men admitted that acne had an effect on their social lives, but a majority of men (42%) prefer to wash their faces twice a day to treat it, instead of using the appropriate skincare product.
  • 85% think you should stop using an acne medication if your skin worsens at first. This misconception needs to be cleared up, as many products do tend to make skin look worse before actually providing visible improvements.
In light of these acne problems, MenScience aims to provide some much-needed information and new products to help overcome these skincare setbacks.

Even if you've been paying attention to MenScience's new acne treatment line for men, you still might not know about the newest addition: Advanced Acne Pads. These convenient pads contain Glycolic and Salicylic Acids to clear and prevent acne breakouts, while deep-cleaning pores. And MenScience has also been releasing tons of new articles focusing on different aspects of the acne problem, so men can educate themselves on the best ways to treat it.

So if acne effects you, as it does the majority of men, take a moment to get educated and find out what you can do to diminish the problem.

The Horrors of Men's Skin Care

When it comes to men's skin care and grooming, nothing's scarier than dark under-eye circles, fine lines and damaged skin. So in honor of this ghoulish season, MenScience provides some tips on how to avoid looking like a monster...for the other 364 days of the year!

Reducing scars / damaged skin

Even if they are a natural part of your body's healing process, you don't have to look like Frankenstein's monster. Diminish scars by exfoliating your skin on a regular basis with a product that gently buffs away dead skin cells. This will soften the scar's edges, creating a smoother appearance. Whether your scars are from previous injuries or old acne, make sure to use a sunscreen so marks won't re-darken when exposed to sunlight. Although moisturizing is not proven to reduce scars, keeping skin well-hydrated can promote a smoother, more supple surface and a healthier appearance overall.

Fine Lines / Wrinkles

Count Dracula isn't the only one that can pull off that "ageless" look. Keep fine lines to a minimum by protecting skin early on from sun and environmental damage with a solid sunscreen, and regularly using a product formulated with antioxidant ingredients like GABA, Peptides and Retinol. Cutting out bad habits (such as smoking and excessive drinking) and following an exercise plan can also help in the long run, and keep you looking great for an (unsettlingly) long time.

Dark Under-Eye Circles

In addition to imparting a very "undead" look, dark under-eye circles can add years to your appearance. To reduce them, apply a warm cloth or eye mask for several minutes to your eye area and follow with an application of moisturizer specifically formulated to hydrate the sensitive skin around the eyes. And quit stomping around the cemetery at all hours---get at least 8 hours a sleep a night to further reduce circles.

For more help with these "monstrous" problems and more, read the MenScience newsletter Seriously Scary Skincare.

Air Travel Tips for Men on the Go

The start of the holiday season is just around the corner, and with it comes the onslaught of holiday travel. While it seems to be an unavoidable evil of the season, there are some things men can do to make it through in one piece. MSNBC.com has a great set of tips for surviving the worst that's thrown at you at the airport: lost luggage, overbooked flights and even delays. Here's more tips we've come up with so you look (and feel) your best while you travel:

1. Take along your own water bottle and drink frequently during the flight to keep your body (and skin) hydrated.

2. Avoid alcoholic and caffeinated beverages, as they can deplete moisture supplies and leave you feeling wired, tired or worse yet, hung over.

3. Head to the restroom every hour or so to splash some lukewarm water on your face: it wakes skin up and gets blood flowing in your legs and feet.

4. Pack a travel-size moisturizer in your carry-on and use whenever your skin feels dry.

5. Nasal passageways are easily dried out by airplane air, so take along an over-the-counter nose spray to diminish congestion.

6. Reduce tightness around your eyes by rubbing in a hydrating, nutrient-rich cream like eye cream and using eye drops to diminish their bloodshot appearance.

7. Try to get as much sleep as you can on the plane.

8. After you arrive at your destination, take a warm shower or bath as soon as possible.

Discover Men's Skin Types to Get the Best Skin Care

Although more and more men are becoming better informed about how to take care of their skin, some of us are still left in the dark when it comes to choosing the best products. (Hey, this is something even the ladies get wrong from time to time). Most products target several men's skin types: oily skin, dry skin, sensitive skin, acne-prone skin and combination skin. Discovering what type of skin you have is the first step towards getting the most effective products, and not just wasting your time (or money!):

1. Oily skin: Feels slightly greasy or slick to the touch, with larger pores. It is usually more prone to blackheads and whiteheads. Look for products that are ultralight and oil-free, and exfoliating items that will remove oil and dirt.

2. Dry skin: Often feels tight and itchy and is more prone to irritations. Look for products that contain hydrating ingredients like Aloe, Urea and Allantoin, and pay special attention to moisturizers.

3. Sensitive skin: Easily irritated by skincare or shaving products or extreme weather conditions. Look for products that do not contain dyes, fragrances or irritants and are specially formulated for sensitive skin.

4. Normal skin: If haven't had any reoccurring skin problems such as shininess, acne or irritated skin, you probably have normal skin. Unless a product states otherwise, most skincare items can be used by men with normal skin.

5. Combination skin: Most men fall into this category, having dry patches and oily patches on their face at the same time (oily patches often fall in the "T-Zone": your forehead and down your nose to your chin). Look for products that gently clean skin without harsh abrasives and moisturizers that are ultralight.

6. Acne-prone skin: Can partner with oily skin, but is also a factor with people with dry skin. This type tends to breakout frequently with pimples, blackheads or whiteheads. Look for products that are noncomedgenic (not pore-clogging) and contain ingredients like benzoyl peroxide.

Repairing Men's Sports-Related Problems: Body Odor, Athlete's Foot, Bacne, Sunburn and Brittle Hair

Sports are the perfect way for men to get in shape and have a good time doing it. But with greater exercise often comes greater challenges to your skin and body, and we're not just talking about sore muscles here. Here's some tips for eliminating problems without sacrificing your fitness routine:

Facial Acne: Exercise and sweat can lead to acne breakouts, as grime accumulates in blocked pores. But you can prevent reoccurring acne by keeping skin clean, without overwashing, and applying a daily application of an acne treatment product that contains benzoyl peroxide.

Back Acne (Bacne): Shower as soon you're done working out and cleanse skin with a gentle liquid cleanser. Regularly exfoliate skin to keep pores clear and remove deep-down grime. Keep hair from hanging on your shoulders and back, and wear exercise clothes that whisk sweat from skin's surface.

Body Odor: You can't have exercise without B.O., but you can control it by washing as soon as you're finished exercising and using a deodorant that doesn't just mask odors with a heavy scent, but rather targets and neutralizes bacteria.

Sunburn: A match on the courts is a great way to stay in shape, but forget to slap on sunscreen and you're sprinting towards a world of pain (and future ages spots and wrinkles). Men require a sunscreen that provides broad-spectrum protection against UVA/UVB rays and won't wash away with sweat. Choose one that provides maximum protection of at least SPF 30.

Athlete's Foot: Caused by moist conditions and friction in your shoe, athlete's foot is an irritating problem that affects many guys. Keep feet as clean and dry as you can by washing your feet with a cleanser that contains antibacterial ingredients and drying them thoroughly after exercising.

Damaged hair: Swim for long enough and you'll develop sculpted waist, arms and legs...and brittle hair?! Rinse hair with fresh water before taking a dip (this will cut down on the amount of chlorinated/saltwater absorbed) and immediately after. Wash hair with a gentle shampoo to rebalance moisture levels and protect follicles, and wear a swim cap if you swim regularly.

Are there any sports-related problems that we missed? Let us know if we've got all the bases covered.
