Is Skin Care Important For Men?

YES!  RE9 Advanced for Men is an advanced line of grooming products that addresses the specific skin care needs of men.


Men’s skin is oilier and more acidic than women’s skin. Their skin is denser and thicker, but steadily becomes thinner with age. Men’s skin is also firmer due to higher levels of collagen, but with aging, collagen levels decrease dramatically. Once the process of aging starts, the skin rapidly loses its firmness and tone, and deep wrinkles start to form.

RE9 Advanced for Men formulas are competitive with benchmarks in performance, ingredients & technology, value packaging and functionality. RE9 Advanced for Men product line provides results whilestill pure, safe and beneficial, shown with clinically proven results.

Do You Know How Many Pressure Points Are In Your Foot?

The application of direct pressure to the reflex-zones or pressure points in the feet, promotes a healing response (or reflex) in the corresponding anatomy.  Every part of the anatomy is connected to the foot and is represented by a reflex-zone located on a specific part of the foot.  By accurately applying pressure to these specific areas, the relevant part of the foot and/or body is contacted.  This picture shows the pressure points in the foot.  Identify the areas of the body you wish to target then refer to the picture to find the corresponding foot reflex zones.  Use your thumbs and fingers to apply pressure to the correct foot reflex zone. Apply enough pressure to generate a response, but not so much that the pain is constant and severe.  Be sure to apply pressure to the entire foot reflex zone.  Remember, like any holistic therapy, this should help you not hurt you.

Do You Know Skin Cancer Is Highly Preventable?


May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month, a time to increase awareness of the importance of the prevention, early detection, and treatment of skin cancer.  Skin cancer is chiefly a lifestyle disease and is highly preventable.

“About 90 percent of nonmelanoma skin cancers and 65 percent of melanoma cases are associated with exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun,” says Perry Robins, MD, President of The Skin Cancer Foundation. “Everyone, regardless of skin color, should make staying safe in the sun a priority and incorporate sun protection measures into their daily life.”

Here is how to reduce your risk of skin cancer:

  1. Seek the shade, especially between 10 AM and 4 PM when the sun is strongest. An extra rule of thumb is the “shadow rule.” If your shadow is shorter than you are, the sun’s harmful UV radiation is stronger; if your shadow is longer, UV radiation is less intense.
  2. Do not burn. A person’s risk for melanoma doubles if he or she has had five or more sunburns at any point in life.
  3. Avoid tanning and UV tanning booths. UV radiation from tanning machines is known to cause cancer in humans, and the more time a person has spent tanning indoors, the higher the risk. Those who make just four visits to a tanning salon per year can increase their risk for melanoma by 11 percent, and their risk for the two most common forms of skin cancer, basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma, by 15 percent.
  4. Cover up with clothing, including a broad-brimmed hat and UV-blocking sunglasses. Clothing can be your most effective form of sun protection, so make the most of it with densely woven and bright-or dark-colored fabrics, which offer the best defense. The more skin you cover, the better, so choose long sleeves and long pants whenever possible.
  5. Use a broad spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher every day. For extended outdoor activity, use a water-resistant, broad spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.
  6. Apply 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) of sunscreen to your entire body 30 minutes before going outside. Reapply every two hours or immediately after swimming or excessive sweating.
  7. Keep newborns out of the sun. Sunscreens may be used on babies over the age of six months, but they should also be protected by shade and clothing. Children are very sensitive to ultraviolet radiation— just one severe sunburn in childhood doubles the chances of developing melanoma later in life.
  8. Examine your skin head-to-toe every month. While self-exams shouldn’t replace the important annual skin exam performed by a physician, they offer the best chance of detecting the early warning signs of skin cancer. If you notice any change in an existing mole or discover a new one that looks suspicious, see a physician immediately.
  9. See your physician every year for a professional skin exam.
