Over the years we have given all kinds of advice to men on how to dress for an occasion, stay on-trend and push their style boundaries. But while fashion is constantly changing, one thing remains a constant — grooming.

The truth is that a little grooming makes a big difference. Regular haircuts, manscaping, bathing and brushing goes a long way. For those men who want to take their grooming to the next level, this is the column for you.

1. Body Hair

Some men embrace their scruff and others hate it. Wherever you stand on the issue, you probably agree that there are some parts of the body that you likely don’t want sprouting out of control (ahem, back). For this, meet the Vectus Laser. This cutting-edge hair removal treatment has raised the bar in laser technology. By measuring the skin’s tolerance, the machine will deliver the right amount of force to burn the hair away but not the skin.

2. Bald spot be gone!

Toupees and sprays have been the punchlines of many bald jokes over the years but SureThik has developed a line of hair thickening fibers that both build volume and cover the scalp to give the appearance of a full head of hair. All-natural and available in eight colours, this product is perfect for men who are starting to lose their hair but aren’t ready for a shaved head or hat wardrobe quite yet.

3. SPF

Did you know that UV rays are coming at you right through your car window? The fact of the matter is that the sun’s rays are the leading cause of aging skin. Sweat proof, rub proof and hydrating, try Celazome for protection against UVA I, UVA II, and UVB rays.

4. Lashes

You don’t need to do a drag review to have a more refreshed look. Curling your eyelashes will make them look longer, will frame the eye and make you look more alert. Your beloved won’t spot what looks different, but there will be something…

5. Coffee bean eye cream

There are endless products that claim to reduce dark circles and puffiness but this one took us by surprise. Cruelty-free, gluten-free and made with caffeine-rich green tea and coffee — you’ll notice a difference in minutes.
