“With all the hustle and bustle of going around and working the whole day against the pollution, [using a facial wash is important]. Also, it’s always good to keep a fresh face all the time since you won’t know who you’ll meet within the day.”

2) Shaver

“Part of grooming yourself is to look clean and presentable all the time. With men, especially those that grow a lot of hair on their faces, it’s essential to trim those down frequently. Investing in your own personal shaver will help you do just that and with ease. I’d personally have an electric one so as to make my life easier.”

3) Hair Wax
