2018 Matte For Men New Year Resolutions

Posted by Lee Jacobs on Monday, January 01, 2018

A few weeks ago, I came across a list of resolutions that I made in 1999 for the year 2000 (for those of you that don't remember, that was an especially interesting new year given all of the "Y2K" hysteria). The list included some of the basics like "workout more often", "eat right", and "get more rest", but also included some more specific items like "speak to my Grandmother more often", "dance when I get the chance", and "save at least 10% of every paycheck". Looking back those 18 years, I've come to realize a very important point: I am more apt to stick to my resolutions when they are specific and meaningful.   Read More >

Posted by Lee Jacobs on Monday, October 30, 2017

I love chocolate just as much as the next guy (or girl), but every time I have more than a few bites, I seem to get a few pimples around the chin area and on my forehead.

Good News Is Sometimes Hard To Come By

Posted by Lee Jacobs on Wednesday, August 30, 2017

With all that is going on in the world today, its certainly a welcome change of pace when we receive good news ... especially when it comes in the form of how our efforts have helped to change the lives of others. Recently a letter showed up in my mailbox from "Casa de los Ninos," a charity that we have donated to over the years, with the mission of improving the lives of children that are at risk. It wasn't asking for more money (as most charities are notorious for), it was just a simple letter to say "thanks" and update donors on the real progress that they've made in this area.  Read More >

Whats The Latest Trend In Mens Skin Care

Posted by Lee Jacobs on Tuesday, August 08, 2017

One of the most common questions I hear every where I go is "what's new in men's skin care?" While kind of a vague question (as this could mean anything from the newest, most effective ingredients to what new products are available), the beauty of men's skin care is that it really doesn't matter "what's new" if you just want to do what is right for your skin ... as what's really important comes down to what I call "the basic five":  Read More >
