Raised in a family where the men prided themselves on their appearance, from my grandfather, to uncles, to my dad, they all told the story of who they were from head to toe. Through grooming, style, and fragrance, they never ceased to leave their mark. Fast forward, grooming routines for most men, consisted of a quick shave with a disposable razor, the stinky magic shave my grandfather use to use, a splash of aftershave and a facial rinse (with water only). Now, with the rise of self-care and the importance of how you present, the evolution of male grooming has taken center stage, right next to that of a woman, in an effort to “match our fly”, reshaping the way men perceive self-care and beauty. As a beauty and wellness expert, I am here for this men's grooming revolution, checking out what products and services they’re into, the switching up of attitudes towards male grooming and beauty, and the rise of gender-inclusive brands.

It intrigues me sometimes the things we find beauty in. However, as a licensed esthetitician and artist, with years of experience in this segment of industry, I've witnessed firsthand how people's perceptions of beauty can impact their self-esteem and create a desire to conform to societal expectations. The paradoxical nature of beauty becomes evident as individuals seek to alter their appearance while simultaneously using makeup to boost their confidence and self-perception. Having been in the makeup/beauty industry for over 20+ years, I often deal with the vein side of people, and with that comes the expectation of pleasing everyone and insecurities. So, while it is subjective, I don’t seek to judge it, only understand it.
