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 >

The Two Reasons Most Men Dont Use Skincare

Posted by Lee Jacobs on Wednesday, May 24, 2017

After being in the men's skincare business for over ten years now, I'm often asked "Why don't more men take better care of their skin?' Without having to conduct scientific studies or poll 1000's of guys, the answer came to me instantly the first time I was asked. It all boils down to two very simple reasons... naivete and/or laziness.  Read More >

How I Deal With The Occassional Pimple

Posted by Lee Jacobs on Thursday, May 18, 2017

Yes, even at 53, I get the occasional zit. I guess in some ways it makes me feel young again and connects me with times gone by ... ah, the good old days! While it will usually pop (no pun intended) up at an inopportune time (like before a big meeting), is there ever a good time to get one??? While not the end of the world, I've found that the best way to deal with them is to not get them in the first place ...  but if I do, I find that the following simple routine works for me...   Read More >

Something For The Ladies

Posted by Lee Jacobs on Monday, May 01, 2017

Over the years, I've noticed that a number of my Matte For Men products have been disappearing around the house. Not so much where the actual package went missing ... more so that the amount of product in the bottle or tube was always less then I remember there being left. "Am I getting senile?" I often wondered, or was there actually a thief that craved effective men's skincare prowling around my neighborhood?  (maybe both???) After years of investigation and hiring multiple private eyes to get to the bottom of this vexing case, the solution hit me like a ton of bricks: My wife of 13 years was causally using my Matte For Men products without mentioning it to me. I guess she was particularly fond of our shave gel as that seemed to disappear the quickest. And so the tale of discovery and smooth legs begins ...  Read More >

Why Skincae Is So Important

Posted by Lee Jacobs on Friday, April 28, 2017

When I first launched the original Matte For Men website back in 2007, I knew that one of the "cornerstones" of the site would be a page educating men on the importance of taking care of their skin ... with an emphasis on protecting it from harmful UV damage. Over the years, we became a little too complacent in thinking men would "gravitate" to this information, soak it up, and change their daily routine to include time for applying protection from these dangerous rays. So without further adieu, let me apologize for not placing a more consistent emphasis on reminding my fellow brothers on the dangers of UV rays (especially with the warmer weather approaching)...  Read More >

The Best No Show Socks For Men

Posted by Lee Jacobs on Wednesday, April 12, 2017

I was recently introduced to a really interesting gentleman named Brock McGoff,  the founder of "The Modest Man" which is a blog that offers style tips and advice catered to shorter men. We met for coffee a few weeks back and discussed everything from men's skincare to recent trends in men's fashion. I was particularity impressed with his ability to create his own business and his knowledge of things that can help all men look and feel their very best.   Read More >
