Welcome back to Beauty Bus’ Manly Mondays! Today, Dev Rice, Director of Communications and Creative for Bosley Professional Strength, is manning up and sharing his manly beauty secrets. We are so excited to have Dev with us today! Dev is also a RYT-500 Yoga instructor and Reiki Practitioner. (Can we say, well-rounded?)
Without further ado, let’s meet Dev!
What is your out the door routine?
Meditate, coffee, shower and go…
Favorite grooming products? Hair, skin or otherwise?
Do you think men’s beauty products have come a long way? Examples?
Well, yes. 20 or 30 years ago, men weren’t really using moisturizers and eye creams and all of that. Today there are so many products on the market geared specifically for men, it’s crazy. In general men are just more knowledgable about, and open to, using “beauty” products. It’s easier to research products on our own and the products are easier to buy, even if we don’t want to make our purchase in a brick-and-mortar store.
I think this is driven by the fact that people are taking better care of themselves in general and we all live in a world in which our age doesn’t necessarily define us anymore.
Any recommendations for thinning hair?
Use products that help maintain a healthy scalp while helping to clear debris from the hair follicles themselves, like Bosley Pro. Also, wash you hair after working up a sweat. More sweat can lead to more sebaceous oils in the follicles and to an increase in D.H.T., a cause of thinning.
Ever make a man beauty faux pas?
Yes. I once wore so much cologne to an event, many years ago, that I was gagging. I could smell myself the whole time. Just gross.
Cologne, yes or no? Reccs?
Brings back my youthful memories of my days behind the fragrance counter at Saks Fifth Avenue/NY. Cologne is fine, just don’t over do it (see above). Tip: Spray the cologne in front of you and walk through it. Should be enough. Personally, I like the old hippy Nag Champa or Patchouli oils, myself.
What does beauty mean to you?
I think beauty is all about being respectfully and completely comfortable in your own skin, wherever and whoever you are.
Thank you, Dev! Be sure to share these manly tips with the men in your life!
See you next Monday!
