One dilemma in a man’s life almost daily is the question to shave or not to shave. While the sculpturally groomed beard is all the rage right about now, the reasons to shave it all off speak volumes in the sweltering summer heat. Thus, if you’ve finally made the decision to shave, do it in style with The Body Shop. Obtained from the lakes of exotic Peru, the Maca Root inspired a range of shaving gels and cleansers by TBS and is literally a man’s dream come true. Not only do they smell heavenly, but it also leaves the face smooth and refreshed post-shave.

Literally a ‘hair-raising’ experience, getting your locks cut in summer could also be a man’s worst nightmare. However, once the trust in a salon has been established, it’s all hunky-dory. But, if there’s one thing that makes all the difference post-haircut, it’s the product. Long gone are the days of disgusting low-quality hair-gels. It’s all about whipping wax now, which not only keeps hair hydrated but also lowers the effect of hair-fall. If you’re confused between a plethora of choices, always go for OSIS Whipped Wax!
