Threads: Skin Care for Men

Condition Your Skin:

Women seem to have a ton of products in order to keep their faces healthy and smooth. Men, on the other hand, are rather limited in the skin care and beauty area. In order to maintain healthy skin, you need to protect it and keep it clean. With the right care, anyone can have wonderful skin.

Aftershave:

The majority of men shave. With shaving, unpleasant factors can occur like bumps and razor burn. Aftershave becomes a must for men who shave. Certain aftershaves can give off harsh feelings and strong smells, so it is important to find the right kind to fit you and your skin.

La Casa di Armani

The Italian Mastermind:

Said to be the “most successful designer to come out of Italy,” Giorgio Armani is no less of a triumphant fashion designer who is known internationally. After attending school for some time, joining the army, and being a window dresser at a department store in Milan, Armani became a well-known menswear designer. He was acknowledged worldwide from his runway shows and designs and was then able to found Giorgio Armani S.p.A in Milan in 1975. He founded the Giorgio Armani Corporation in 1979 which also began sales in the United States.  Armani now produces plenty of products including men and womenswear, underwear, swimwear, perfumes/colognes, other accessories and even the Giorgio Armani phone. Armani also has designed clothing for a large number of movies, such as the 1987 film “The Untouchables.” He was also the first designer that banned models with a BMI under 18. He also has worked closely with pop star Lady Gaga. Armani takes a big interest in sports; he designed Italy’s Olympic uniforms for the Summer 2012 Olympics. His famous, and one of my personal favorite colognes, is the Aqua di Gio by Armani. Giorgio Armani is a role model of mine and will still be extraordinary in the fashion industry (even being almost 80 years old!)

“Eau de Chanel”

 Image

Coco Chanel:
Founded in the early 1900s, a young orphan girl who was abandoned by her father set out to make a different in a world dominated by the male gender. With woman being dressed in tight corsets, long peasant dresses, and big hats. Gabrielle Bonhuer Chanel wanted to be remembered in an era where only few woman had made a difference. She decided to open a small shop in 1921 in a little French district, usually only getting business from working girls. She never gave up and with the help of her then husband, she traveled the neighboring countries setting out to find the new age of clothing. And thus began Chanel…

Bleu de Chanel:

“Eau de Chanel” is a French term commonly used by the legendary french couturière herself Coco Chanel describing her perfume
No.5. Since the Early 1920s, No.5 has been taking the world by storm and soon became the best selling top of the line perfume of the century. The newest product out of the House of Chanel is “Bleu de Chanel” a new cologne the brother to the luxurious No.5. Being only a few years old, Bleu de Chanel is already a best seller and in the top 5 for male fragrances. Like everything Chanel has put on the table, this cologne is soon to be iconic like No.5. “Chanel the Enternal.”

PERSONAL OPINION:
In my opinion anything that can last almost 100 years and still be claimed iconic is worth checking into. Chanel has immortalized herself not only in her clothing that started a new era, but her iconic No.5 perfume. Bleu de Chanel has been and will forever be my favorite cologne it is timeless and can be worn on any occasion.
