    Are these "beauty" tips legit?

    http://www.gq.com/style/blogs/the-gq...e-for-men.html

    1. Say yes to SPF.
    2. Exfoliate twice a week.
    3. Use an eye cream.
    4. Strengthen skin with a retinol.
    5. Eat less sugar.

    The article recommends sunblock, which seems sound, but also retinols and eye serums, which I immediately begin to question. Any insights?

    The last one is worded strange in the article. It mentions gluten, but gluten does not affect most people and it is not synonymous with dietary sugars if that is what you need to look out for. It almost makes it sound like gluten free versions of foods is what you need to lessen sugar intake if gluten-rich is what you are looking out for, and that isn't the case at all to my knowledge. Maybe I'm just severely misinterpreting it.

      So I am not a dermatologist, but I see one regularly and have prescription grade retinol but I've also used over the counter stuff before too. I didn't open the article since GQ, like most magazine, has "recommendations" which are just advertisements. So if you let me know what you or they are using/recommending the retinol for, I can tell ya what I know

        Seriously, very well done. Research based conclusions. They obviously err on the side of caution and are a bit intense with their warnings but there is good information. You can just look up many, many common products before using them and see what bad things are in them.
