To get what you want, you have to look the part, and that usually means putting your best, most youthful face forward. Luckily, a new wave of anti-aging products is hitting the men’s grooming market. Boosted with natural ingredients and rare minerals, and using the latest advances in technology, their concentrated formulas act as a power surge for your skin and offer an alternative to a dreaded (and expensive) trip to the dermatologist. So if you can’t afford — or bear the thought of — injections or nips and tucks, try upgrading what’s in your medicine cabinet. It’s never too early to start turning back time.
