Man of the Future

What does the man of the future look like today? The man of the future is a leader who embodies confidence and a positive self-image. He is bold and modern. He is smarter, faster, stronger, and he understands the power of appearance. Menaji Skincare seeks to help men stay ahead of the game.

When you feel good about your image, you are more likely to exude confidence and success is sure to follow. All great candidates can answer the questions a hiring manager can throw at an interview, but which candidate was self-assured during their interview? That’s what prosperous companies will be looking for. Put in a little effort to improve the way you present yourself and the rising energy within you will be reflected in the eyes of others. Creating the best version of yourself, not only shows you have the guts to do the best in your position, but it also shows you have good work ethic. By taking the time to make sure you look a step above presentable, you are demonstrating you have the ability to put in time and effort into other aspects of your life, including your job, family, and health.

The man of the future will take care of himself physically and mentally. This is why skincare is on his list of daily activities. Skincare is commonly associated with keeping skin healthy and clear. However, many people overlook another benefit of skincare. In fact, skincare can help improve the mindset in some cases. It can be employed as a kind of therapy. A good skincare regimen is an example of an excellent stress reliever after a long day. It’s cooling, relaxing, and provides a sense of wellbeing. The motion from the routine itself is something familiar and can be therapeutic. Aside from going through the actual process, just the knowledge that your skin is being taken care of along with the compliments you receive for your blemish free skin is enough to give you a healthy dose of self-esteem.  Not only is skincare a way to heal the skin from the harshness of the day’s activities, but it is also healing to the mind as well.

The man of the future will use cosmetics and skincare. He will use them because he wants to get all he can out of life and because men’s skincare and cosmetics are readily available at increasing locations. Menaji Skincare is already a part of the future and will continue to help men achieve their goals and dreams for generations to come.

At Mënaji Skincare, we know you are most confident when you look good.  And there is no one more confident than Philippe Petit who 40 years ago walked a tightrope between the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City.  Lasting 45 minutes, he walked and danced back and forth eight times along the 450 pound cable. An amazing site for everyone watching below on the city streets of New York!

He eventually came down and was taken to the local police station. Charges were eventually dropped as along as he agreed to perform a free aerial show for kids in Central Park.

So in honor of “confidence”, we celebrate Philippe Petit.  You can read more about this man and his journey in this PBS Biography and watch this video from 1974.

Men's Health

 

OK guys, listen up.  Do you believe that your attractiveness is only skin deep?  Wrong! We are talking skin health here and what you see on the outside can be tweaked by what you do to your insides.   Adding some of the right nutrients each day can go a long way in promoting how handsome you are!  And as we all well know, when you feel good about the way you look, you benefit in many ways.  So go eat with “handsome” in mind.

Nutrition science supports the connection between certain nutrients and skin health so go ahead and nourish your skin from the inside out.  Including certain nutrients in your diet will help reduce the harmful effects of UV exposure, reduce aging of the skin, eliminate toxins and even limit hair loss. Skin is our largest organ and its prime function is to act as a barrier between the internal and external environment of our bodies. A whole food diet with particular attention paid to specific vitamins and other nutrients is a powerful tool not just for skin health but for overall health. Where do we find those vitamins, minerals, and anti-oxidants which can improve your handsomeness?

  • Wild salmon, sardines, flaxseed, walnuts, and chia seeds for omega-3 fatty acids needed for skin repair, moisture content, anti-inflammatory effects and overall flexibility
  • Citrus, kale, parsley, broccoli and bell peppers for vitamin C to protect skin from damaging sun exposure
  • Carrots,  sweet potatoes, spinach, apricots and chili peppers for vitamin A that promotes proper repair and maintenance of skin
  • Almonds, sunflower seeds, tomatoes, avocado, and asparagus for connective tissue and UV protection
  • Tuna, brazil nuts, garlic, eggs and brown rice for the anti-oxidant selenium to quench free radicals, reduce hair loss and for tissue elasticity
  • Green beans, garbanzo beans, strawberries, cucumber and celery for the mineral silica essential for the connective tissue in hair and nails
  • Pecans, oats, ginger, pumpkin seeds and oysters for zinc needed for controlling oil in skin and acne

While you’re at it, don’t forget the powerful role of sleep and exercise for your skin health. Sleep goes a long way in improving our appearance as well as reducing daily stress, re-energizing us, or helping with repair of body tissues.  Exercise helps with detoxification as well as a myriad of benefits for skin and anti-aging.

Bottom Line: Eat handsomely, get plenty of sleep, pump some iron and your skin will glow!
