Women have many beauty and personal care problems that need to be addressed for traveling. However, you must be sensitive to the fact that men may also have those issues. If you want to fully enjoy traveling with your partner, you can help him deal with these issues. It will make the entire experience more fun for both of you. Here are some personal care tips for traveling with your partner.
Men face hair loss problems early in life. According to the American Hair Loss Association, while 85% of men lose hair at 70, 25% start losing hair even before they reach 21. This causes confidence issues.
Some men use hairpieces to hide balding spots. Toupees are not convenient, though, especially for travel. In windy conditions, they can be blown away. They cannot be worn swimming. That will hinder men with toupees from enjoying many things when traveling.
Nowadays, though, there are non-surgical hair replacement methods that can restore the look of a full head of natural-looking hair. It can't fall off, and it stays on all the time, even while showering and swimming.
For partial hair loss, a hair weave is attached to existing. Like the hair weave done with women, this stays put and blends with your man's hairstyle. If the hair loss is more extensive, hair attached to thin synthetic skin is bonded to the scalp. This also stays on and is entirely undetectable even when touched. Voila, both of you can go to the windiest places and swim anywhere, any time.
The opposite of hair loss, excess hair in the wrong places can also be a problem for men. Those who have hairy backs, for instance, can feel self-conscious about going swimming. Some men also have excess hair between their eyebrows, creating a unibrow, or around their ears and nape.
Shaving can make hair grow back thicker. Waxing can be painful, especially for men who have thicker hair. They still have several options, though. Depilatories or hair removal creams are the easiest and the cheapest. Test it on a small patch of skin first to rule out sensitivity or allergies. Note that the hair will grow back.
Laser hair removal is a treatment that must be done professionally. It kills only the hair root, not the follicle. Some hair can grow back, although it may take a while before they do. That is why a follow-up treatment is usually needed once a year.
Electrolysis is also a treatment that must be done professionally, and the results are permanent. However, it may take several sessions depending on the amount of hair that needs treatment. That is because tiny electric shocks are delivered to individual hair follicles to kill them. For broad hairy areas, sessions can extend throughout the year.
Skin problems are not exclusive to women, and men also get self-conscious when they have them. Acne is a big problem for both men and women, but it's worse for men because they have bigger pores. This makes them more susceptible to dirt and oil buildup, leading to breakouts.
The good news is that there are products that can help control acne. Check the ingredients, though, as some products intended for women may contain estrogen, making acne worse for men.
There are other skin problems like rashes, eczema, and psoriasis. These can be controlled with medicated lotions or cream. Be sure to pack these in your luggage so you can apply them when needed.
Some skin problems may be triggered by allergies. Ensure that your man checks with an allergologist as soon as possible. You need to either rule this out or identify food and other substances he is allergic to. You can then eliminate these from your products and ensure that the food he eats in your travels is free of them.
Men usually sweat more than women, but excessive sweating is another problem common among men. It can inhibit them from traveling.
According to Mayo Clinic, there are treatments for hyperhidrosis, which is what this condition is medically called. These can include a prescription cream, nerve-blocking medicine, antidepressants to lower anxiety that contributes to sweating, and Botox injections. Consult a doctor to find out which is best for him.
Your partner's snoring can be a problem for you even at home. It can also be a problem when traveling, though. Having him snoring loudly on the plane is embarrassing for both of you.
Your dentist can help him stop snoring, though. A particular oral device that looks like a sports mouth guard or an orthodontic retainer is custom-fitted to the patient. This prevents the closing of the airway, which causes snoring. A study in the American Sleep Disorders Association Review shows that the use of this oral device often stops snoring.
