Doc Handsome Answers Your Questions On Back Hair, Sweaty Shoes & Hand Shakes

QUESTION: I’m heading to the beach in a few weeks and am showcasing some hair in places I’d rather not — specifically my back side. What to do?

ANSWER: For those with wookie-like qualities, the best way to remove unwanted back hair at home is with a proven product like the Bakblade 2.0. This easy-use, “rake-like” razor sheds excess fuzz with zero pain, boasts a long-handle to reach tough spots and is a game changer for overly hirsute men. If you’re in the DC area though, the Doc certainly recommends you come see Claudia or Christina for a professional waxing.

 

QUESTION: My forehead is a little shinier than me or my girlfriend would like it to be. How can I shine a little less brightly?

ANSWER: Fear not slick friend — you’re not alone. There’s a ton of men out there with greasier-than-desired skin and a lot of remedies for this oiliness as well. A common solution is an oil-reducing mask such as Brickell Purifying Charcoal Mask. From there, it’s time to choose and use a moisturizer — either one that’s targeted as anti-shine or oil controlling. These hydrators are formulated to rebalance skin’s oil levels, absorbing excess oil and shine without over drying.

 

 

QUESTION: As the weather warms, I like wearing shoes without socks? What’s your take on this and how do I avoid sweating and stinking up my shoes?

ANSWER: Going sans socks is a personal choice, but we’ve got no problem with that here. The only issue is sometimes the sweat and smell you allude to, but that can be avoided with the assistance of a quality foot powder or spray. Just spray or sprinkle some into those kicks before heading out and you’re a “shoe in” for a good time.

QUESTION: What should I do if I run into someone I think I’ve met before, but can’t remember their name?

ANSWER: First off, it might just be easiest to say “hey, how are you, nice to see you again.” That always beats the “nice to meet you” line that could be insulting to someone who remembers having a conversation with you. Beyond that, it’s not the worst thing to ask the person, “I’m sorry, I just can’t seem to remember your name… can you remind me?”  Whatever you do, never resort to calling someone “Bro,” “Chief” or “Boss.”
