Musings of the Day: Manly Beauty Regime

According to an article on Reuters Japanese men are quite obsessed with beautifying themselves.

“Yoshitomo Sango treats his complexion to a face scrub, toner and face cream every morning before strolling to a nearby salon to get his hair done….”

Which brings me to my Musings today. What do you think of men that take part in a daily beauty ritual? Moisturizing? Toning? Maybe even applying powder or foundation….?


Tell the Muse and click below for my view!

“Japan’s $3 billion male cosmetics market is one of the biggest in the world, accounting for nearly one-fifth of men’s cosmetics sales globally, according to market research firm Euromonitor International. It estimates the global market will reach $25 billion by 2011….”

These numbers do not shock me in the least. Japan is a culture obsessed with beauty, could be why I love the Japanese so much, and having such a large male audience in the beauty world isn’t any surprise. I think it’s great for a guy to enjoy a beauty regime of any kind he chooses be it skincare or makeup. Any guy that feels skincare is important is so in my ace book plus the Muse has never made any secret over the fact that she loves pretty men!

What do you think?

Do you think men that worry about their skincare are awesome?

Scary?

Do you draw limits on what they should and shouldn’t concentrate on makeup and skincare wise?

Tell the Muse!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment.

    I would love it if my boyfriend started taking better care of his skin!!! That’d be amazing! I really don’t mind if guys want to wear makeup; everyone should be able to beautify themselves as they see fit. Would I want to date a guy that wore foundation? Not particularly, mainly because that would mean that he wears more makeup than I do. But I would love to introduce my bf to eyeliner once in a while. Love that sexy rocker look….:-)
