Men are traditionally left behind in the beauty realm. However, today men can primp and preen till their heart’s content, and market demand for male aesthetic improvement is high.Here are 5 ways that today’s men are making over themselves.
Veneers are still the gold standard of the Hollywood smile. After a course of Invisalign to address any crooked teeth, a trip to a specialist dentist will give you the rundown on custom-made caps for your teeth and a (gulp) cost estimate. Many procedures involve filing your existing teeth and trimming the gums for the ideal shape, however, you might also opt for Lumineers which are porcelain covers for the teeth – no removal of existing teeth required. Failing that, get those chompers cleaned and whitened to brighten your face.
Today’s medical science is pretty rad. Thinning hair or hair loss? There’s specialist medication to help stimulate hair growth, called minoxicil. Want to have a natural-looking hair transplant? That finally exists. There are some effective shampoos and conditioners for thinning hair also. Besides genetics, hair loss can be a side effect of medications, stress and excessive product use (such as hair bleach), so rule these out before you commit to a course of action. A final way to mask thinning hair is camouflage sprays, which if matched to your remaining hair colour and applied well, look natural and subtle.
Whether it’s face, body or skin, many men undergo cosmetic surgeries to alter their appearance. From laser resurfacing, mole removal, to man boob surgery, liposuction and tummy tucks, there are so many male-specific treatments to enhance your exterior and your self-confidence. Ridding oneself of man boobs through gynecomastia surgery is a particularly interesting one that is on the rise. Even if you can bench press an impressive amount, some men have stubborn fat deposits and even excess glandular tissue that can be easily excised. Coming into summer, it’s one to consider if the gym is not delivering the results you had hoped.
Feet and Hands
Rugged manly hands are still attractive, but scratchy, fungus nails are not. Get that sorted. Begin with over-the-counter fungal nail treatments. If they are to no avail, chat to your GP to get a prescription to solve any underlying bacterial issue. Learn how to file your nails or outsource the task to avoid splits and rough edges. To finish the job, grab a Milky Foot treatment from your local chemist. This foot peel will save you scrubbing dead skin from your feet manually. Be prepared to shed skin for the next week, so use well before sandals weather!!
Whether you go a full Brazilian downstairs, or just focus on your back, male waxing is uber common. Don’t waste time shaving or DIY, get an expert to remove the hair in a matter of minutes. Bonus tip: get them to do between the eyebrows while you’re there. Other areas such as legs, arms and chest are really down to individual choice.
