The best tools & products for body grooming


Pre-Shave Prep

To minimize skin bumps, think about using a body scrub. Ideally, you should exfoliate one day before your manscaping session (doing it right before works too, if you don't have particularly reactive skin) to rid the skin of dead cells, open up your pores, and get those rebellious ingrown hair out of their cache.
