Men once had few options in
grooming products: cologne, after
shave, some facia) soap. But today's
men face department store coun

skin care is more acceptable to men
now because of marketing changes.
"Companies have changed their
product mixes to better suit men
and have changed their marketing
approach," she said. "It's more
prescriptive skin care than cosmetic
now. Men's skin care used to be
labeled as things like cosmetic bars
and skin bronzers. Cosmetics do not
appeal to men in general, but they
do want to take care of their skin."
Cynthia Zapotocky, Ben Simon's
counter manager of Clinique for
Men, said she thinks the media

men are our biggest buyers, but they
usually buy piece-by-piece before
getting into the full regimen,"
Jeff Woods, Miller and Paine rep
resentative for Royal Copenhagen,
Jan Stuart and Calvin Klein, said he
sells more men's cologne to women,
but men buy their own skin care and
are becoming less inhibited at in
quiring about the products.
Although interest is increasing,
sales are not.
"There's still a lot of prejudice,"
he said. "Good skin care doesn't
seem to fit into the macho image."
"Men's skin care lines have been
out on the coasts for some time. The
Midwest is often overlooked at first
when new products come out, but
the (skin care) lines are finally
extending throughout the country,"
While men's skin care products
are relatively new to the Midwest,
Royal Copenhagen, one of the first
men's grooming lines, has been
available at Miller and Paine for
more than 15 years, Woods said.
"It's mostly the same men who've
always been interested in skin care
that use the full system the bus
iness men but younger interest is
picking up," he said. "There's always
been a market for men's skin care, it
just took the companies to decide it
was cost effective to produce and
market the lines."

Lincoln native's book
outlines benefits of
By Molly Adams
A former Lincoln native, now living
in Seattle, has co-written a book that
examines the benefits of smoking res
trictions in the workplace.
Bruce Miller, who received degrees
from Nebraska Wesleyan University and
UNL, is lead writer for "The Smoke
Free Workplace," which he co-authored
with William Weis. In the book, Miller
and Weis outline reasons why a busi
ness will benefit from restricting or
banning smoking on the job.
Otis Sunderman, a supervisor with
the Lincoln Department of Environ
mental Health, said he thinks a book
like Miller's could have a lot of influ
ence on businesses.
Sunderman said he receives at least
one call a week from people who are
concerned with the consequences of
working in a smoky environment.
Sunderman said his department will
work with the management to try and
help alleviate the problem.
Miller offers some strategies for
employers and employees of smoky
workplaces for cleaning the indoor air
environment. The book shows through
numerous employee surveys that smok
ing restrictions are welcome.
The book's forward, written by Stan
ton Glantz, president of Californians
for Nonsmokers' Rights, says "employees
welcome smoking restrictions. . . and
(the book) illustrates how easy it is to
develop and implement these policies."
Glantz's organization is respnsible
for the successful implementation of a
clean air policy in San Francisco.

exception of state and federal offices,
to provide no-smoking areas in the
workplace for non-smoking employees.
Sunderman said he doesn't know if
Lincoln will adopt a similar policy
because the city follows the state's
Clean Indoor Air Act which states that
relief shall be given to the non-smoker.
UNL also follows the state law, said
Earl Brown, director of environmental
health and safety.
Brown said public areas at UNL are
considered non-smoking areas unless
otherwise posted. The NU Board of
Regents established a no-smoking pol
icy in classrooms, but private offices
are left up to the individual.
Brown said most complaints he
receives deal with office areas. He said
he works with the office personnel to
resolve the problem. Good compliance
can be expected, he said.

comfort and well-being of their em
