Bulumia Nervosa, Anorexia Nervosa , Binge Eating are some of the most common eating disorders among men, According to
 NEDA ( National Eating Disorders Association.)  Also grouped in with those disorders such as  the Adonis Complex and Supplement Abuse .



"Males may account for approx 1-5% of patients with anorexia nervosa although prior to puberty the risk increases, and approx 50% of sufferers in children are boys. Males account for 5-10% of patients with Bulimia Nervosa. In actual numbers, bulimia is more common among males than anorexia and will occur in a greater ratio. In actual numbers this means that there are more men with bulimia than there are with anorexia."

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…
