They probably look at their wives, girlfriends, mothers, sisters, or any other woman in their lives and feel that skin care is too time consuming. Skin care is important for people of all ages, yes even children. I mean look at Pharrell, he's looked the same since 1990,  yes it is genetics and some type of secret water that he drinks (I kid), but it's also because he takes care of his skin. So gentleman, here are three simples steps that you can use to make sure your face does not feel like sand paper. I'm sure your girlfriend will thank me later. 1.

On Saturday April 19, 2014 I did something that I never thought I would do, complete a Tough Mudder race.

I was a bit skeptical, but I let him talk me into joining his team. Only a few people obliged and the “Brooklyn Squad” was born, with three people from Brooklyn and two from Queens lol.
