Face Time

Take care of your mug by grooming and shaving with quality skin- and hair-care products.

TAKE COVER: Makeup’s not just for women anymore. Men are now using it to smooth skin, fight aging, hide blemishes or scars, and camouflage redness or hyperpigmentation.

Real men don’t cry—they moisturize. Even guys who would seem to define stereotypical masculinity have opened their minds and wallets to grooming products formulated to make them look and feel better. Locally, the boom in men’s grooming can be seen at spas with male-specific treatments, old-fashioned barbershops like Kennedy’s All-American Barber Club and Floyd’s 99 Barbershop, which offer straight-razor shaves with hot-towel treatments, and a new Mall at Millenia boutique, The Art of Shaving, which sells only men’s shaving products. Here are some products that’ll help you look your best:

1. A brush with excellence starts with the Pure Badger Shaving Brush, $55, The Art of Shaving, The Mall at Millenia.

2. Hydrate and improve skin texture, and reduce pore size and imperfections with Miracle Skin Transformer SPF 20 Men, $48; miracleskintransformer.com

Hip modern looks, retro reinventions and easy wash-and-go styles are among the top trends in men’s hair fashions, says Sarah Pickar Sleeth, co-owner of Floyd’s 99, America’s Original Rock n’ Roll Barbershop, in Winter Park and Orlando.
