Many men still view skin care as being just a feminine thing. Men need to wake up and take some skin care tips from basketball players. An article in the November 27th Wall Street Journal noted that NBA players do not have an aversion to getting manicures, pedicures or talking about their favorite skin care products.
Chandler Parsons (Houston Rockets) – uses Paul Mitchell products
Amar’e Stoudemire – uses Bath & Body Works Stress Relief body lotion with eucalyptus and spearmint
Anderson Varejao (Cleveland Cavaliers) – uses Clinique moisturizer
Rasual Butler (Indiana Pacers) – uses the Clarisonic facial brush
It is long overdue for men to step up to the plate (or basketball hoop) and take a lesson from these sports icons. Women really like men who are well-groomed and smell nice.
