Roll out the red carpet

It was a close call with the recent writer's strike, but it looks like the 80th Annual Academy Awards is all set to stun (and possibly bore) audiences once again this Sunday. Known as much for the caliber of acting and film making being honored as the styles that make their way down the red carpet, the Oscars have always been a time for stars to wow, and possibly appall, their adoring fans. This year, the nominees for Best Actor run the full gamut of men's styles:

  • George Clooney for Michael Clayton: This politically-active leading man has been credited with jump-starting a return to cool, Sinatra-like style with tailored suits, well-trimmed haircuts and smooth moves.
  • Johnny Depp for Sweeney Todd: The hip former teen heartthrob once again donned the haunted look for another Tim Burton production, but Depp is well known for relying on a laid-back, bohemian-chic, eccentric style in his every day life.
  • Tommy Lee Jones for In the Valley of Elah: Known for his craggy, rugged appearance, Jones has been the epitome of hard-talking, straight-shooting good ole' boy for more than four decades now.
  • Viggo Mortensen for Eastern Promises: Although the ladies might have swooned for dreamy Aragorn, Mortensen proved he was much more than a flight of fantasy with tough roles in A History of Violence and Eastern Promises. He went through strenuous physical training for his most recent role, and underwent extensive time in the makeup chair to perfectly recreate his mobster tattoos. Legend has that his steely gaze, quiet style and body art actually had strangers on the street thinking he really was a Russian gangster.

Whether your a man's man or a style pro, MenScience wants to know which leading man you think has the best men's grooming style. And let's see who brings home the coveted award on Sunday night!

Stop the Clock: How Men Can Stay Healthy, Fit and Strong at Any Age - Part 1

Anti Aging tips and tricks: "Use an anti aging cream, some moisturizer, stay away from the sun and you'll be in good shape."

More Anti Aging trips and tricks: "Nutrition supplements, that's the Anti aging bomb."

How many times have you heard that same old, same old Anti Aging advice?

Sure nutrition vitamin supplements are important, but what separates the young-looking skin from the tired looking ones? That's the one question you need to ask Anti Aging Treatments that give you the standard advice you hear again and again.

It's Anti Aging guiding time. Let's see how well you can follow. By the end of the guide, you'll understand the overlooked factors in Anti Aging: good skin care products, well-balanced lifestyle, regular exercise and good nutrition.

Stop the Clock: How Men Can Stay Healthy, Fit and Strong at Any Age

We live in a youth obsessed culture. While new antiaging skin products promise to wipe away the years, hundreds of antiaging health supplements urge you to turn back the hands of time. Magazine covers constantly sport twenty-something men flashing washboard abs. Here at MenScience, we don't believe it's possible to create a magic elixir of youth, nor can we guarantee a six pack, but we are confident that a positive mindset, combined with a well-balanced lifestyle, regular exercise and good nutrition, will keep men healthy and looking great for years to come.

We've put together a complete guide to antiaging that's full of tips and advice you can use at any age.

Men's Skin Care & Grooming
We're not against a laugh line or two, and no one can mess with genetics (yet!). However, there are many ways to promote a healthy appearance and protect your skin from damaging factors that contribute to signs of aging.
  • Use a gentle liquid cleanser that won't irritate or dehydrate your skin (as bar soap will).
  • Exfoliate your face and body to remove dead surface cells and promote a smoother appearance. Microfine Face Scrub is a good bet for the face and neck, and the Buff Body Gloves work great to get rid of rough skin on your body.
  • Men should pay extra attention to critical areas like the skin around eyes. Use an antiaging product specially formulated to moisturize and protect this delicate area to prevent fine lines.
  • Protect yourself against harmful sun exposure by regularly using a long-lasting sunblock of SPF 30 or higher and covering up when out in the sun for prolonged periods of time. Damaging UV rays are one of the leading causes of damaged skin and fine lines.
So, what do all these anti aging skin care products (or creams if you're old school) have in common?

Answer: Each anti aging product has the key ingredients to what we're searching for in an anti aging treatment.

OK, we're done ... with round one. Now you're ready to compete for the "Youthful Appearance" grand prize.

I'll leave you with this question: Which of the above anti aging products has multiple uses? For help, read our Antiaging Skin Care Treatment and Antiaging Products section.

Take Heart This February...and Protect It

While not quite as catchy as National Condom Week, February is also American Heart Month. This year the focus is on promoting greater awareness of heart disease among women (since heart disease is commonly thought of as a "man's issue"), but there's no question that men can benefit from improved heart health. After all, according to the American Heart Association, coronary heart disease is the leading cause of death in America. And unfortunately, many men don't even realize they are experiencing a heart attack until it is much too late.

Know what to be aware of and act fast. Signs of a heart attack include:

  • Pressure, pain or discomfort in the chest area
  • Shortness of breath
  • Nausea and dizziness
  • Pain in other areas of the body such as arms, back, or neck

If you experience any of these symptoms, contact emergency services right away.

Acting quickly can improve your chances of surviving a heart attack, but the best course of action is to prevent heart disease before it begins. This means eating a diet rich in heart-healthy foods like fish, whole-grains and fruits and vegetables, getting regular medical checkups, exercising and complementing your nutrition with a reliable daily supplement. MenScience Omega 3 Supplement Formula contains a pharmaceutical-grade source of Omega-3 EPA/DHA fatty acids, which may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease in men. For more information about Omega 3's benefits, check out the article Heart Protection for Men with Omega-3 Fatty Acids.

February is officially American Heart Month...let's work to make this American Heart Year.

Playing it Safe on Valentine's Day


February 10-16th is officially National Condom Week. Leave it to the American Social Health Association (ASHA) to make romantic sentimentality detached, clinical and (READ) safe. In commendation of these efforts, MenScience officially recognizes this week with some simple protection reminders:

1. Prepare. Have the condoms nearby so they aren't forgotten in the heat of the moment.

2. Educate. If you're a parent, consider having that dreaded father-to-son/daughter talk this week. Statistically it's been shown that most teens have had sex by the time they've left high school, so whatever form your discussion may take, whether you're teaching abstinence or sexual responsibility, make sure your kids know how to protect themselves. For tips on how to talk to your child, click here. For the 20 steps to condom application, click here.

3. Discuss. Equally challenging is the conversation you should have with your partner(s); sometimes a lover may be reluctant to use protection, feeling that condoms diminish intimacy or lessen sexual spontaneity. ASHA's website has some very helpful suggestions.

The issue, though, may be yours. If gloves aren't your style, consider this: Each year in the US, there are approximately 19 million new cases of sexually transmitted infections (STI) such as HIV, herpes, chlamydia, syphilis, gonorrhea, hepatitis and HPV; left untreated, these can cause a host of medical complications, including infertility. If you feel as if using protection will cramp your style, just imagine how much unplanned parenthood will!

Another way to play it safe on Valentine's Day is to have your loved one check out our unique Valentine's Day gifts section. Why risk getting a gift you don't want and will never use? Featuring gifts by recipient, a fun personality profiler and a Valentine's Day Sweepstakes, MenScience.com has gifts you're sure to love!

Avert a Valentine's Day Massacre

The dreaded V-day is only two weeks away. And you haven't got the slightest clue what to get for that special someone. You could risk getting the cold shoulder that day (and in bed for the next week or so), or you can take a hint from MenScience on these last-minute, easy-on-the-wallet gifts that will score points and won't make you vomit from cuteness (believe us, your significant other doesn't want that four- foot-tall teddy bear either).

1. Make a CD of your favorite songs that at least make a passing reference to love. Yes, your partner may hate your taste in music, but there's no way she's going to turn down a mix you lovingly crafted for her with your own little hands.

2. A surprise trip to Barbados. Okay, we had to throw that one in.

3. Waited too long to book an exotic getaway? Turn your house into your own private oasis. All you need is some chic massage oils, candles, low lighting and music (hint hint: clean the place up first).

4. Can't get a reservation at that ultra-chic restaurant? Places are notoriously packed on Valentine's Day, so why face the crowds and disgustingly sappy couples there, when you can make a great dinner at your own place? Even you can't cook, tons of restaurants and gourmet markets offer take-out meals. Set the mood with nice dishes, candles, the works and let the chemistry commence.

5. If your sweetheart's got a green thumb, bypass the expensive bouquet that will be at the bottom of the garbage by the end of the week and get her an elegant orchid, or some other type of blooming plant.

6. And finally, when in doubt, go online. Many gift and flower sites like RedEnvelope.com and 1800Flowers.com offer expedited shipping for the big day. You'll be paying the bucks, but we have a feeling if you don't, you'll be paying for it in a lot of other ways later on.

(And what if the sweetie wants to get you something? Kindly direct to her to the many unique Valentine's Day gifts at www.menscience.com. We highly recommend the Travel Kit. You can tell her it'll remind you to book earlier for the trip to Barbados next year!)
