BAD GOOD NEWS FOR GUYS

You can buy stuff that'll make you look younger, handsomer, cover up a zit, age spots, circles under your eyes, and frown lines.

Yes, it'll cost money, but more and more men are doing it, and the word is out -- you will have a better social life (sex life!). And a better-looking you has a better chance of moving up-up in the business world.

AND it's chic. It's IN -- a lot of guys are doing it. Terry Bradshaw, famous former football quarterback, and country singer Tim McGraw -- also other celebrities, names you'd never guess because their makeup is subtle, but using makeup is definitely not something famous guys chit=chat about, with Letterman or Leno.

Fascinating facts: Men spent twice as much on grooming products last year as they as they did back in pre-recession days. Since 1997, sales of cosmetics for men went from a $41 million yearly gross to $217 million.

Sales of L'Oréal's men's line, "Menaji," has been grossing more, selling, 70% more every year for the past three years.

Yep, men, guys in the regular world, and even soldiers, are buying and using "Menaji" (it's never referred to as makeup). Menaji is generally shipped to GI's in a cigar box style package.

Guys are using CAMO BRONZE, $24 (like camouflage), and 1.5.oz. of MOISTURIZING AFTERSHAVE, $24,' , EYE GEL, $32, and POLISHING SCRUB,$24.

You can get it in a travel bag, or a sports bag, for an extra $70, You can also purchase a tube of lip agent, an anti-shine powder, anti-wrinkle eraser. and a glycolic skin toner. The recommended "deep cleanse" pack in a cigar box is $100.

Guys, don't do it! Don't buy it! Don't get caught in the save-your-youth care and maintenance frenzy -- you're going to be stuck with silly, foolish, time-wasting costly routines that may make you feel better, but make very little difference to the over all affect of AGING.

THIS IS A WARNING:

DON'T GET HOOKED, GUYS. ONCE YOU START, THE MIRROR WILL BE YOUR ENEMY, YOUR DAILY-DEADLY-CONSULTANT, FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE.

Caring for the skin is OK, but the only man I can deal with being prettier than I am is the fabulous British comedian Eddie Izzard! Otherwise, no makeup, guys! I like my men looking like MEN!!!
