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 >

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 >

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 >

My Review Of Tommy John Underwear

Posted by Lee Jacobs on Monday, June 27, 2016

So every now and then I venture outside the world of men's skincare to share my thoughts on other things that can contribute to a man's health and well-being. In this segment, I tackle underwear ... that's right, men's underwear. "Why?" you may ask. Well because there really is no other piece of clothing that can make or break a man's day so dramatically than your "second skin" (and I kept hearing how "great" this brand was from Howard Stern, that it peaked my interest). So after trying both the Tommy John v-neck tee and mid-brief underpants, I thought I'd share my thoughts with you so you can decide if they really are the greatest things since ... well .... underpants. Lets take a closer look at the tees and underpants separately:  Read More >
