  • How Do You Unplug?

    As the pandemic adds the feeling of hopelessness, and a nation that is built on capitalism causes us to continue to wonder how we will continue our way of life, unplugging is needed now more than ever. A form of self-care, unplugging may come as a difficult task for those who are ambitious and those who have responsibilities that seem to never end. Learn how The Quintessential Gentleman team unplugs! Eric Thomas, Founder and Editor-in-Chief - Playing Tennis is a great unplug for me. Just the tennis court, the racket and my friends. I recently purchased a Nintendo Switch and I play Smash Brothers online with friends. This is a mindless game that doesn’t allow me to be on my phone or scroll through social media. Jasmond Hatch, Staff Writer - There is a lake by my home that is the definition of peace! There, I can unwind, unplug, talk with God and my best friend when he’s with me. Just to be able to let go of the day and focus on that walk and that peace of the water is truly refreshing. I also love Candy Crush. When I play that game, nothing else is on my mind. The game draws me in every time and I get to have some fun and not worry about whatever is going on around me. Monique Howard, Staff Writer - Drawing or painting provides a great creative outlet if you have a job that doesn't allow room for that sort of creativity. Reading a good novel is always a plus. Writing a poem or short story can be therapeutic. Movie nights are always nice. Spending time with a pet is nice too. Dane Young, PR & Talent Relations - To unwind I link up with what I consider to be my tribe at least twice a week. I find time to connect with friends that reside in the same city as I do. Having a community and a safe space to decompress and talk is a valuable thing to have. I like to take advantage of hanging out with them as often as I can. We typically have game nights, Sunday dinners, or find activities to do like the museum, bar hopping, dancing, etc. Any excuse to dress up and feel good about ourselves. I also began to pick up a new hobby. I've been going hard in the gym and even started boxing training. I found that a physical routine has helped me clear my mind. It gives me something to think about other than my daily work task. I must say I'm loving the results that have come from working out. Martel Sharpe, News Writer - I only unplug when I sleep. Quintessential Gentleman family, how do you unplug?

  • 7 Skincare Tips For Beginners

    Male grooming expert and founder of SU inc. Barber Spa and Juice Bar, Michael Kearse understands the importance of skincare. He also knows that the process can be a tedious task for those wanting to make their skin a priority. The change of weather, what you eat, drink, how much you sleep all contribute to a young fresh look, but there are other factors such as using SPF, the right skin products, and which chemicals may not be the best for your skin. Kearse launched the spa in 2014 after 20 years in the cosmetology industry. Today, SU Inc. boasts a sophisticated clientele of individuals from around the nation who patronage the luxe establishment for their one-of-a-kind facials, beard and hair treatments and vast array of services. Kearse believes that every man deserves the high-end grooming experience that celebrates their inherent majestic nature. With plans to launch a mobile grooming business in the near future, Kearse is evidence that with hard work and determination, any dream is possible. The Quintessential Gentleman caught up with Kearse to ask him seven tips for beginners who are adding skincare to their daily routine. Figure out your skin type A lot of Black men suffer from dry skin or hyperpigmentation also known as uneven skin tone. By identifying your skin type, whether it be oily, dry, sensitive or normal, you are able to take the necessary steps to take care of your skin in a manner that is reflective of your skin's needs. Find a good product that works with your skin type Once you identify your skin type, you are then able to purchase products that are made specifically to help you. You should always avoid harsh chemicals and toxins, no matter what product you choose to use. For healthy skin, regardless of skin type, look for products that contain shea butter, argan oil, or jojoba oil. The more dry skin types should look for lavender or cedarwood ingredients in their products. Create a consistent routine daily Consistency is the key to what we consider "good skin". Expecting your skin to be amazing after only one day of treatment is unrealistic - it takes time. Since everyone's skin is different, that time will vary depending on who you are and what your skin needs. By sticking to a routine it allows for your skin to get used to a consistent regime as well as allows you to notice what works and what doesn't. Clean your skin twice a day Your skin cells are an important component of any skincare routine as you shed millions of skin cells a day. By cleaning your skin twice a day, you are helping rid the skin of these old cells, causing your skin to look healthier and brighter. You should get into the routine of cleansing the skin once in the morning and again at night. Exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate Most men do not exfoliate their skin but it’s an essential component of any skincare regime. It helps to prevent clogged pores as well as remove dead skin cells. Exfoliating can reduce dullness, improve skin tone and help to eliminate chronic conditions such as acne. It is best to exfoliate in the morning as your skin cells shed the most at night. Use a good toner Not many men have even heard of a toner, but it is a necessary part of your skincare routine if you want to remove any last remnants of dirt, grime and impurities stuck in your pores after you wash your face. This will strip oils and dead skin cells from your face and help prevent acne and breakouts. Moisturize your skin Moisturizing the skin may seem like a simple task, but oftentimes it is overlooked or done with the wrong products for your skin type. Proper moisturization will help prevent dryness, soften the skin and hydrate your skin cells. When your skin is dry and irritated it can cause breakouts and acne. Men that shave their face should use extra precaution in moisturizing their skin to avoid inflation and irritation.
