Grooming Guru: Chris Salgardo of Kiehl’s Since 1851

first_img Long Hair for Men: Tips for Growing and Maintaining Your Style It was a long time ago. I was in my teens and my mother was trying to get my acne under control and we were looking for a lot of over-the-counter stuff at the drugstore. Anything to get my skin under control. And it was interesting because a lot of the same issues I was having then are still prevalent today. So it was really early on that I started thinking about grooming.Were you aware at the time that this was grooming?Yeah, big time. My mother was someone who always had a great style and does have a great style and my father was a highway patrolman, a guy’s guy, but loved to look good. So I was probably reading GQ when I was 12-, 13-years old. It was more fashion-y, rather than about grooming. But the hair looked good, the brows looked good, so I wanted to look good, too.What are your top rules of grooming?First of all, I would say whether you have facial hair or not, make sure you know what you are growing on your face. Because whether it’s long side burns, moustache, goatee, it all needs maintenance. The hair on your head; the hair on your face, you need to care for it equally. Then, cleansing is something that men just don’t think about it. They’re shaving but still using Dial soap or whatever is in the bathroom and wondering why their face is so dry. Well, it’s because they’re using soap. So proper cleansing is important. Shaving is critical. Find a shaving product that is right for you. Moisturizer is vital. Invest in a good grooming product for your hair, whether that’s gel or pomade. It will just help keep everything looking really neat.What are the basics every guy should have in his dopp kit?These days you can find a 2-in-1 or 3-in-1 cleanser, something you can use to wash you hair, your face, and body and even sometimes shave with it. That’s something to always have in your bag. I believe in sunscreen. That’s my mantra. A moisturizer with sunscreen is very important. And if you are shaving, you should have a good shaving cream. If you have those three things, you’re covered. I’m an eye cream fanatic. That’s something that I’ll always have.What’s one thing most guys don’t do that they should? Moisturizing. They forget, they get lazy, they don’t think they need it and they wonder why they’re getting all these fine lines. It’s very simple. Think about your dashboard and what would happen if it just sat in the sun and you never Armor All’d it. Your face is the same situation.Do you think guys are better educated on sun protection?I think they’re educated but I don’t think they want to do it. Because everyone still wants this glow. There is this period from 12 to 3 when the sun is at its harshest so you want to avoid that if you can. Stay under the umbrella, reapply SPF because every time you look down, and see that tan, that’s sun damage. So it’s like they know, but they’re still not acting on it. Then it’s about reapplying. Also, it takes 20 minutes to start working so you can’t go running outside immediately after applying it.Who are your grooming icons?

We had a great summer, had a lot of wins and they learned to win together. I really think it’s carried over into this spring. It’s been a great ride so far.” The Chieftains will meet 2A Greater St. Helens League foe Ridgefield (16-6)in the district championship Friday. Originally slated for 5 p.m. at W.F. West, there’s a possibility it gets moved to somewhere in Clark County, coach Stephen Donohue said.Columbia River had an answer to all of Tumwater’s scores. They tallied five runs in the second inning to pull to a 7-2 lead. After struggling with his control early, Mettler settled in before tossing a complete game. He allowed just eight hits and struck out five.“It was all mental, so I had to change from the wind-up to the stretch,” Mettler said. “The scoreboard figured it out.”When Tumwater (14-8) put two on the board in the sixth to cut the lead to 7-4, the Chieftains responded by loading the bases to set up Ulrich’s three-RBI double. Mettler was 2 for 4 with three runs at the plate and Nick Alder was 2 for 3 with a pair of RBI singles. Alder also made several defensive gems at shortstop, including a sixth-inning ender when he came across the infield to snag a soft hopper and throw a runner out.

He came from Heritage, and pressure playoff at-bats weren’t something he’d experienced before.

His extra-base hits both touched the center-field fence that sits 370 feet from the home plate at Ed Wheeler Field.“Those baseballs have families, man,” senior Derek Mettler quipped after the game.The power-packed day at the plate sent waves through the Chieftains dugout, and the hits kept pouring in. River (18-4) had 11 on the evening to secure a state spot for the seventh time in the past eight years.“It’s really special to me,” Ulrich said. “It’s pretty new to me but it’s a great feeling because this group of guys is so special to me.” GO [email protected]last_img read more
