manmadeIn today’s world, it is okay for modern men to care about grooming, skincare, and health. With tips, techniques, ideas and personal style demystified, Manmade takes the guess work out of appearance. Containing answers from modern, real men (actors, businessmen, artists and tradesmen), no matter the style and type of men, grooming care is of utmost importance. From basics (shampoo, soap and clean nails) to more detailed (eyebrows, moisturizers, haircuts), life hacks (oily skin, toothbrushes, travel tips) complete the picture. Looking well groomed promotes confidence to the world which allows the inner self to be the best too…

Definitely written with the more modern man in mind, there were some very good tips for men of all ages. Shaving, eating, skin essentials, all of which are important to the whole person. From professional to rugged, the necessary care and result is the same…clean, healthy and confident. Though not everyone will connect with the style of this book, taking the mystery and attitude out of men’s personal care will definitely help some take more pride and responsibility in their appearance through their grooming. Perfect as a gift in middle school, college, or career-oriented, Chris Salgardo, president of Kiehl’s skincare line, does a nice job of making grooming a common occurrence for men.
