The Science On How to Be More Attractive as a Man: There’s a lot of research on this topic, but here’s an interesting one: A study from the University of Arkansas recruited 162 women for a speed-dating style experiment where they were shown photographs of six similar-looking men.
Dr Mitch Brown, who led the study, says: “Funny men appear more competent to women. If women believe that to be the case, they may believe men will do better in their careers, know more people, know how to play the game, and even earn more money.”
How to Be More Attractive as a Man: Be Nice (Personalities Actually Matter, Guys)
When I think of the whole “personality matters” thing, I go to those cheesy romance movies where the jock would be an ass to “impress” a girl. Like in Grease (as men, we actually like this one, right?), when Danny tries to seem indifferent by not remembering Sandy, which makes her so mad she sings at a very small pool. So anyway – the point is – don’t be a Danny, be a Simon and have a good personality.

How to Be More Attractive as a Man: Take Care of Your Skin… For Real
Yes – the ladies do care about your skin, guys. See?
Here is how to do skincare the MOX way:
Step 1. Cleanse: Grab your Invigorating Peppermint Cleanser and get ready to hit the ground running with vigor (and attractiveness) after you experience the cold, ice-bath-for-your-face freshness it leaves you with. Our formulator – Pharmacist Ben – says, “Cleansing is the harshest thing people do to their skin. This is because dirt and natural skin oils are in the same place.”
“To get rid of dirt, you have to get rid of natural skin oils. The challenge with a cleanser is to create a formulation that cleans the skin without disturbing these oils.” The reason why MOX is superior for giving men’s skin a strength boost is because it’s formulated with skin-quenching ingredients like Peppermint Oil and Lipids. Plus, it makes a killer shaving cream.
Step 2. Serum: With MOX, all it takes is two to three steps to have a full face care routine with real benefits. The second step – the MOX Multi Nutrient Serum – is jam-packed with Squalane and five essential skincare vitamins: A, E, C, D, and K. Not to mention the fact that the Multi Nutrient Serum is filled with 20 to 40 times more nutrients than a traditional serum.
“One of the things pharmacists understand is the power of nutrients as medicinal and therapeutic compounds,” Pharmacist Ben mentions. “We see things like vitamin C as medicine. Since the skin is turning over at a faster rate than any other tissue in the body, it’s very receptive to nutrition.” So basically – the serum is only formulated with strong stuff that’s good for men.
Step 3. Lock It In: If you ask Simon which step in his face care routine is his favorite, he’ll say the Mineral Hydrating Mist; it’s a potent mineral hydrator that helps invigorate and hydrate for healthy skin that looks and feels its strongest. This means that it works cell-deep, like all MOX products, to deliver nutritiously beneficial vitamins and nutrients in each spray.
Pharmacist Ben explains, “It’s formulated with plant-derived ionic minerals (AKA electrolytes), which provide hydrating and nutritive properties and enhance the skin penetration of other MOX products used with it. A preservative-free formula, it features dermal health-enhancing amino acids as well as hyaluronic acid and lactate to keep the skin soft and moisturized.”

If you’re just a guy who enjoys self-care and wants to add some more strength to his routine, try the MOX Eye Tight & Bright for an energized look (also a favorite in Simon’s MOX stash to meet Hollywood’s demands).
