FAQs

Q. A few nights ago I was shaving before a date and I nicked myself. I showed up at the restaurant with toilet paper stuck to my face. How can I avoid this in the future?

A. First, ditch the toilet paper. It doesn’t absorb blood very well, and the cut will just reopen when you peel it off. Second, buy an alum block. Moisten it with water, and rub it on your cut. The antiseptic properties will calm the irritation and stop the bleeding. It’s an essential for the regular shaver.

Q. I see so many hair styling products on the shelves and I can’t tell what the differences are. How can I figure out which product to buy?

A. All styling products achieve the same basic purpose: they help you shape your hair into a specific style. With that said, there are some big differences between products. Pomade, for example, is waxy and doesn’t dry. Hair gel, which most men are familiar with, dries over time and can make hair brittle. Hair waxes and mousses are also available. The best thing to do is try a few products and figure out which one works best for you.

Q. I have a dandruff problem. It isn’t something that looks good on dates, as you can imagine. Thoughts on how I can fix it?

A. Dandruff is a hassle, absolutely. Although there are many causes, thankfully, most cases can be fixed with a special shampoo. Alterna Caviar Clinical Exfoliating Scalp Facial exfoliates and moisturizes your scalp, purifying the skin and dislodging dandruff flakes. A good wash before a date should do the trick.

Q: I’ve had a few tiny, hard bumps on my lips for the last few weeks. I’ve been applying lip balm, but they haven’t gone away. What could be the problem?

A: The small bumps you describe could be the result of an allergic reaction to a particular product you’re using, the effects of sunburn or just dry skin. Try consistently applying gentle and natural lip balm like Aquaphor Healing Ointment or Caudalie Lip Conditioner. Don’t pick at or peel the bumps – this could cause infection or cold sores. To speed up the healing process, use a gentle lip scrub like Laura Geller Beauty Lip Strip Cooling Sugar Scrub. However, the bumps could be a symptom of a larger problem. If they don’t go away in another week or so, you should see a dermatologist to rule out any underlying health conditions.
