The Happier Sex?

The stereotype of the working man, logging in 10 hour days as he pops aspirin after aspirin to deal with the headaches caused by his stressful job, is moving one step closer to becoming obsolete. In a new study conducted by the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, women now appear to be less happy than men, owing largely to changing home and workplace dynamics.

From ABC News: "The study found that women feel they have too many choices and too many responsibilities, which adds to their feelings of sadness.....Another new study, conducted by Princeton University and released in August of this year, found that since the 1960s, men have cut back on activities they find unpleasant, but women have not."

While men seemed to have learned how to take things a bit easier, women are still dealing with full plates. But does this study really ring true? Are men happier now than they were 10 years ago? Are work and family responsibilities the sole cause of happiness? The jury still seems to be out on this one....

A Happy Hairy Medium

For many men, thinning hair can be cause for definite alarm. Which is unfortunate, because, let's face it, there's a lot more men in the world with less-than-full heads of hair than those walking around with impenetrable forests sprouting from their skulls.

While most celebrities have opted to either go the route of hair renewal and transplants, or just shaving the whole thing off, it's nice to see some famous guys finding a happy medium...and looking pretty good for it.

MensFashion.About.com editor Daniel Billett has put together a neat list of men who make a receding hairline look both stylish and polished. From Sting to Chris Meloni (of "Law and Order" fame) to Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, these guys have no problems passing up the Cro-Magnon look without transforming their heads into cue balls. It's a refreshing concept.

Expert Advice for Men's Summer-Related Skin Problems

Summer's passed and we've been fielding a lot of questions lately regarding repairing sun-damaged skin and other seasonal problems. Here's answers from our team of MenScience experts to some commonly-asked questions:

Q: I've been noticing brown freckle-like marks on my face. Are these age spots?
A: Uneven pigmentation and so-called "age spots" (lentigines) are the result of skin's aging and sun damage. This is a common situation with men's skin, and causes it to look devitalized and damaged. Unfortunately, most men don't realize that these age spots can be significantly diminished with the right professional-grade skincare ingredients. MenScience has created a dermatological-grade formula, Pigmentation Repair Formula (with 1% Retinol), to directly correct these problems.

Q: I have dark circles under my eyes. Can I do something about this?
A: Genetics, lack of skin nutrients, pigmentation and thin skin can all play a role in causing dark under-eye areas. Eye Rescue Formula contains ingredients proven effective in combating the appearance of dark circles and helps to prevent further damage.

Q: My skin looks dull and rough. How can I revitalize it?
A: You can improve your skin tone significantly if you exfoliate regularly and keep skin hydrated. Exfoliation is the accelerated shedding of the upper, dead layers of the skin. It is highly effective at improving the skin's smoothness and tone, reducing the appearance of fine lines and revealing newer skin underneath. It is critical in the management of acne, ingrown hairs, dandruff and complications precipitated by accumulation of dead cells. Using Microfine Face Scrub up to 4 times a week can remove dead, thick surface cells, revealing new, smoother, healthier cells beneath. Follow with a moisturizer to diminish rough areas.

Q: Tanning this summer has really dried out my skin. How can I fix that?
A: Chlorinated water and strong sunlight can damage skin, turning it rough, irritated and uncomfortable. Apply moisturizer generously in the morning, before you go to bed, and throughout the day as needed. Plan on being outdoors a lot? Use a sunblock that contains hydrating ingredients like Aloe and Azulene.
