I have been working on a post about men an eating disorders for a long time. Allot of men read PTB an I'm grateful for that. Women aren't the only ones to feel the pressure that society doles out when it comes to body image. Men also have this battle. When researching this post I read that men have always suffered from eating disorders. Just recently in the 1990's the percentage of men with eating disorders has been on a steady increase. Some experts say that in the 1990's the advertising industry realized the marketability of the Male image. One could remember the Calvin Klein advertisements with a very ripped Mark Wahlberg as the jumping off point. You can even look at the music industry also. Allot of the men are extremely waif like in appearance.
I've watched these two segments an found them to be very informative. In understanding the Psyche of the Manorexic. I'm a visual learner so I found these to be helpful

Do you think that is a more widespread problem ?  Is it surprising men suffer from eating disorders? 

I like many women sometimes would blame men for my poor body image. Thinking they were allot of the pressure. I never thought to stop an think that they too may feel pressure.  In this culture it all seems we are all under pressure. Who are we answering too in all this madness are we just willing participants in this crazy machine. That's just my opinion when do we all start to heal. I think talking about it is a start. I will be doing follow up postings on this topic.

If you are experiencing problems with weight control you are not alone. Get help by contacting your family doctor, a psychologist, mental health center or a doctor specializing in eating disorder .

PTB Spring Reboot : Skincare

Clensing ( washing your face )   Cleansers : Cethaphil , Phisoderm, 
Splash warm water on your faceDispense product on your palmWith your finger tips , use upward and outward motions to apply product Once you scrubed your face . rinse it away with warm waterTake a towel and pat face dry 

Toner : Is debated in the beauty industry, I personally think it does a great job getting rid of excess dirt and restoring PH balance in your skin. If you want to skip it , Ill leave it up to you . Burts Bee's Toner ,witch hazel are my favorites though what you have on hand is good.
Wet a cotton ball with warm waterapply toner to cotton ball Using upward and outward motions Avoid eye contact 
Exfoliate : This is extremly important , you only have to do it 2x's a week. Since you shave it is a form of exfoliation your doing it already . Exfoliation is extremly important.  St Ives Apricot Scrub is my favorite  wet your face with warm water Take a quarter size amout of product apply it too yout finger tip…
