Proper grooming is a more compicated process than most men know
By Ryan Short Contributing Writer
"Guys need help,'' says Tom Granese,
founder of the Uptown boutique
Regimens. "They have
no idea where to start,
what to buy, or even
what they need."

ferent skin type and
everyone has a different
routine. The key is find-
ing out what products
work best for you and
that fit into your life,"
Regimens offers an

One man's shaving routine can employ up to
eight different products to achieve the ultimate in
skin clarity: pre-shave oil, exfoliater, cleanser,
toner, shaving cream, a medicated stone, balm, or
after-shave. Another man may need far fewer.
Because most men have little foundation in
grooming knowledge, common misconceptions
often lead to incorrect facial maintenance, espe-
cially with moisturizers. For instance, just
because a gentleman has an oily complexion
does not mean he should skip the moisturizing
Every man should have two bookends to his
daily shaving ritual: A cleanser (to help a razor to
glide smoothly over unsoiled skin) and a mois-

Pre-shave oil saturates he beard with relaxing
oils, softens the skin, and provides a slicker lubri-
cant. Granese recommends Sharps Barber and
Shop Daily Prep Lotion for a daily pre-shave reg-

Perhaps the most curious item on Granese's
list of recommendations: the Billy Jealousy Six
Pack Slimming Solution. This cream decongests
the skin and gives more tautness using natural
caffeines to enhance lipolysis. It stimulates the
body to emulsify fats and further refine areas of
your body that need definition, especially if used
Regimens in the West Village carries many different products to help the grooming-chal-

"Results speak for themselves," Granese says.
"Men aren't as concerned about packaging or
brands. All they care about are the results. If you
look good, then its all worth it where grooming is
