When it comes to skin care for men, there is a lot of emphasis placed on moisturizing the face. The sensitive genital area however is often overlooked, and as a result, can become extremely dry. Many factors come into play that can cause skin irritations on and around the penis, such as changes in weather, shaving, diet, and frequent showers using hot water. These issues are especially a concern during the cold winter months. Even though the genitals are not exposed to the elements like the face is, a good daily skin care regimen should still be used in order to assure that the sensitive skin on the penis is properly cared for.
In the past, options for skin care were limited to cheap over-the-counter products. These did not take into consideration all the areas of the male body that require attention. Recently, however, men's skin care needs have created an influx of new products. But how do you know which products are best? While a product may be inexpensive and have a nice scent, does that make it good for you to use on one of the most important parts of your body?
"Old Spice" has been around for generations, and offers a "High Endurance" Body Wash for men that you can buy for under $5. The product description grabs the attention by phraseology such as 'rich gel lather that SLAMS the dirt away!' and 'intense clean!' However, if you were to go beyond that and read the active ingredients, you would find mostly chemicals and dyes.
In fact, you do get what you pay for when it comes to the low priced, trendy body care products made for men. But do you really want to bathe yourself in chemicals? Many of these products do not counteract the effects of aging, contain any sunscreen protection, and do not contain natural ingredients, and therefore, in my opinion (and from experience) are very damaging to the penis and genital region.
I personally have battled extremely dry skin my entire life and have tried product after product to find one that nourishes and treats my skin in all areas. One particular line of skin care for men that I have been using for the past 6 months has literally changed my life. It is the NutriMenC™ RE9® line by Arbonne Swiss Skin Care. The REality Moisturizing Sunscreen offers intense moisturizing properties and when used regularly, increases skin tone and elasticity and also contains an SPF sunscreen 8.
It was created for use on the face, but I have used it all over my body with great results. The active ingredients are all natural: Octinoxate (a natural sunscreen), bilberry and sugar maple. The NutriMen line offers a 5-step process, conveniently packaged in a Revolution kit, that includes REveal Exfoliating Wash; REsurface Shave Gel; REstoring Toner; REality Moisturizing Sunscreen SPF 8 plus a FREE Arbonne Intelligence Thermal Fusion Hair & Scalp Revitalizer.
I was sold on trying the Arbonne product line after I viewed a presentation of before and after pictures, with one in particular of a burn victim. Here is the testimonial:
Electrical Burn 4/30/06 - 5/17/06
"Dave, a journeyman electrical lineman experienced a flash fire from an electrical panel which threw him on the ground. The County Burn Unit gave him an expensive petroleum based ointment. They thought his ear may need a skin graft. His wife Margaret, gave him Arbonne Intelligence Cleansing Gel and Skin Conditioning Oil instead. Dave said the skin conditioning oil eased the pain. No grafting was necessary."

I felt that if this man's condition improved so quickly, that I had nothing to lose by trying Arbonne and I'm glad I did!
No, you cannot purchase these products at Target, and yes, they are more expensive than Old Spice. But as Penis Resources is geared towards quality products for men, I am recommending this for care of the penis and surrounding areas, as well as daily care for the face. For more information on the NutriMen products visit Arbonne International.
Arbonne products can only be ordered through a consultant. If you are interested in placing an order for Arbonne or just learning more about their products, email me and I will be happy to provide you with the contact information for my personal consultant. If you mention hearing about the products through this blog, you will receive an additional 10% discount off your purchase!
Having healthy skin is something that must be addressed daily. This is especially true of the penis and testicles. Taking care of that most sensitive of areas should be included in every man's daily skin care regimen.
