Recently, Justin Bieber opened up to GQ Magazine about the tattoos on his body. One particular body art caught the eyes of many…the tattoo of Selena Gomez.

This is my ex-girlfriend. So, I kind of try to cover her face up with some shading; but, people still know.

Now, we all know that Justin is not the only person who has unwanted tattoos. Many have or had tattoos that no longer bring them joy. Laser removal is (of course) the permanent option for tattoo extermination. But, that option is so dog-on expensive!

Don’t be a Justin! With the power of makeup, body art lovers can successfully cover up their tattoos for a temporary and satisfying moment.

Even though the humidity is constantly changing from day to day, the continuous change in weather will make your face feel anything but oily or dry. It’s still important to exfoliate, slough away dead skin cells, dirt and oil and leave your face feeling fresh and ready to absorb moistures. It is hard enough trying to find a face wash product that is not laced with chemicals that could cause harm to you at a reasonable price, but for the budget conscious guy here’s a natural product you can try Bulldog Natural Skincare Face Wash for Men. Bulldog Natural skincare products never contain artificial ingredients, synthetic fragrances or ingredients from animal sources. This product helps with dry or oily skin and is a great facial wash for daily use. I use it myself. I naturally have oily skin and a lot of facial cleansers dry my face out. This face wash does not dry up your face and is gentle enough to make your face feel fresh and clean. This face wash definitely does its job properly and I highly recommend you try it.
