Male maintenance, everyday essentials ideal for the groomed man
16 Jul 2017
Male maintenance once consisted of nothing more than a shave and haircut when necessary and a bit of deodorant. Thank goodness times have changed!
Today, grooming includes skin care and anti ageing routines albeit far more simple than that of the ladies. The modern man who embraces male maintenance practices has been dubbed the metrosexual male and we’re okay with that! In fact, maintaining a youthful appearance has become as much a part of every man’s daily routine as dressing well.
But, with so much advice available, many men are overwhelmed and often uncertain about how to approach their grooming.

A proper digestive and hormonal system is the foundation for a healthy body. It, therefore, makes logical sense that if you don’t have a healthy system, it can’t function as it’s designed to. For this reason, alone it is vital to ensure that the gut is in good health. Once the internal systems function properly, the appearance of the skin will automatically improve. A gut health test can be done with one of the integrative doctors on the team at Health Renewal.
Acne is successfully treated topically using a number of chemical peels. Treatment depends on skin type and the severity of the condition involved. A series of treatments can drastically improve the condition of the skin.
Unwanted hair on the face or body does not contribute to a groomed look. Fortunately, there are now options to have this unwanted hair removed on a permanent basis. Alternatively, consider a little “manscaping” at your local salon.
Injectables to slow the onset of ageing
