Male Grooming Products

1. MY NAILS MAKE ME LOOK LIKE GOLLUM
You, sir, need to think more about your cuticles. For the uninitiated, they’re the dead skin at the bottom of your fingernails and toenails, and they need caring as much as every other part of your body. Make the change now: invest in a hand and cuticle salve and give your cuticles some love. Hand & cuticle salve, £8.99 JR Watkins www.jrwatkins.com

2. MY SKIN MAKES ME LOOK LIKE GOLLUM
The skin is the biggest organ of the body – and yet we’re more than happy to ignore it. You wouldn’t leave your kidneys or your heart to rot away, would you? Real men moisturise (but only with stuff that has the word ‘man’ emblazoned on it). Original moisturiser, £6.99 Mancave at Boots, branches regionwide

3. MY DARK BAGS UNDER MY EYES MAKE ME LOOK LIKE GOLLUM
We know that the #workhardplayhard lifestyle can be particularly taxing on your visage, not least the bags beneath your eyes. But you don’t have to carry them around all your life. Give your bags a quick swipe with this and they’ll be banished forever. Hydra energetic eye roll-on, £11.49 L’Oreal Men Expert, stockists regionwide

4. MY TEETH MAKE ME LOOK LIKE GOLLUM
A staggering 71 percent of women responding to a survey carried out by a popular dating website (we won’t name it, but it rhymes with Smatch) said that they cared most about the teeth of their potential date than any other body part. Make ‘em pearly white – but not Rylan luminescent – with this activated charcoal toothpaste. Charcoal white natural toothpaste, £3 Arm & Hammer, stockists regionwide

5. FACE UP TO IT
Face masks aren’t just for girls, you know. South Korea has a lot to answer for, including the mainstream acceptability of plastic surgery and Psy, but it has given us something actually useful: a baffling range of face mask products, including charcoal-based rubs, and sheet masks (which are sheets of thin paper, imbued with products that suck out the impurities). No, they’re not going to do what putting on the Mask did to Jim Carrey; they’re even better. They’ll clean your pores and leave you with vibrant, fresh skin. Benefiance pure retinol intensive revitalising face mask, £63 for four, Shiseido, stockists regionwide
