The Best Wallets You Can Buy Right Now

We spend a lot of time thinking about how to spend our money, but we rarely think twice about how to carry it around. Like a window into your life, a wallet can say a lot about you. A worn, basic bifold bursting with receipts might imply one thing—and a slim, classic card case another. No matter what kind you prefer, a good wallet should be sharp, durable, and easy to use. But that doesn’t mean you need to empty your wallet to buy your next one—although the wallets at the end of this list are certainly tempting. Your next one should fit your lifestyle. Whether you’re climbing the face of a mountain or the corporate ladder, we’ve got the best wallets no matter your top priority: stashing your cash, protecting your information, keeping all your valuables in one place, making a statement—or all of the above.

Types of Wallets
A good wallet should fit your lifestyle, so think about what you’ll be using your wallet for: stashing your cash, protecting your information, consolidating your valuables, making a statement—or all of the above. A leather bifold is the standard go-to for a slim, back-pocket wallet. Trifolds are sometimes a bit bulkier, yet more narrow and easy to fit in your pocket. Card cases are ideal for carrying in your front pocket, and card cases work well if you want to keep everything in one place. In any case, let your day-to-day needs lead the way.

What Kind of Leather Wallet?
When looking for leather, check the tag for quality indicators. “Genuine leather” isn’t certifying that the leather is real—it’s an actual grade of leather, typically the lowest quality used for consumer sales. Top grain, the most common leather, is often buffed down to remove blemishes. And full grain is the best quality that shows the full depth and texture of the hide. If you want the best, look for this term on the inside of the wallet.

How to Care for Your Leather Wallet
If you do opt for a leather wallet, always follow the care instructions included with the piece. But if you want to give your wallet a quick refresh, remove all your cards and cash, wipe it down inside and out to remove any debris, and use a soft cloth (an old T-shirt will do the trick) to apply leather conditioner or mink oil to keep your wallet hydrated to prevent dryness or cracking—and to give it a rich color that will develop more and more over time.

More Than 50,000 Reviewers Agree: These Are the Best Sheets on Amazon

Does your bed make you happy? When was the last time you bought new sheets? Chances are, it’s time for an upgrade. (Hey, it couldn’t hurt). You could easily spend hundreds on your new sheet set—but why? These top-rated sheets at Amazon have over 50,000 reviews and get a solid 4.4 out of five stars—and they’re on sale right now, starting at just $ 17.

Made of a synthetic brushed microfiber polyester material that’s as soft as silk and smooth as satin, Mellanni 1800 sheets are hypoallergenic, stain-resistant, and made to last wash after wash. And that’s not just sales-pitch jargon; these are the opinions of literally tens of thousands of satisfied customers. And at this price, you can’t afford not to find out for yourself if the raves are true.

sheets
Amazon

If you’re having trouble sleeping at night, or are just ready to ditch your grubby old sheets, Mellanni 1800 Bed Sheets are a perfect upgrade. There are nearly 40 colors and prints to choose from. The polyester microfiber is more durable than cotton, and as long as you wash them in cold water and tumble dry them on low, they’ll remain stain-, wrinkle-, and fade-resistant for years. Even if you’re happy with the sheets on your bed, these sheets are perfect for kids’ beds, ideal for the guest room, and perfect as a back-up set.

Sizes are as follows:

Twin (from $ 17) – 1 flat sheet 66″x96″, 1 fitted sheet 39″ x 75″, 1 pillowcase 20″x30″
Twin XL (from $ 30) – 1 flat sheet 66″x102″, 1 fitted sheet 39″ x 80″, 1 pillowcase 20″x30″
Full (from $ 27) – 1 flat sheet 81”x96””, 1 fitted sheet 54″ x 75″, 2 pillowcases 20″x30″
Queen (from $ 30) – 1 flat sheet 102″x90″, 1 fitted sheet 80″ x 60″, 2 pillowcases 20″x30″
King (from $ 30) – 1 flat sheet 102″x105″, 1 fitted sheet 78″ x 80″, 2 pillowcases 20″x40″
California King (from $ 33) – 1 flat sheet 102″x108″, 1 fitted sheet 72″ x 84″, 2 king size pillowcases 20″x40″
Split King (from $ 30) – 1 flat sheet 108″ x 102″, 2 fitted sheets 39″ x 80″, 2 king size pillowcases 20″ x 40″

These prices are particularly notable because even as the size of the sheets increases—and from Queen on up, you get two pillowcases—it stays right around the $ 30 mark. And unlike many sheet sets, the fitted sheets here feature an elastic band all the way around, rather than just the corners.

The Best Topical Acne Treatments You Don’t Need a Prescription For

In a perfect world, you’d be able to summon your dermatologist at a moment’s notice, getting an instant prescription or professional treatment upon first sight of a pimple. Nay, in a perfect world, you wouldn’t get the pimples in the first place. But life isn’t perfect, and blemishes happen unpredictably, and seemingly always at the most unfortunate moment. That’s why you have to rely on over-the-counter and on-the shelves remedies to neutralize volcanic pimples and blitzkrieg breakouts. These topical acne products use hard-nosed ingredients that help clear pores, calm irritation, and prevent further acne and agony.


The Right Moisturizer For Every Skin Type

Since we’re all in the market, here are our favorite topical acne treatments—including cleansers, spot treatments, and serums—that work quickly against acne. Stock up now, to ready yourself for the unpredictable and untimely breakout.

1. ZitSticka KILLA Kit

As soon as you feel that impending pimple building under your skin, act fast. Cleanse the area with one of ZitSticka’s cleansing wipes—packed with salicylic acid to dissolve dead skin cells, tea tree oil to clarify the skin, vitamin E to restore, and a touch of alcohol to disinfect and dry out excess oil. Then, apply a ZitSticka KILLA patch, which sends a bunch of skin-saving ingredients to neutralize the pimple before it gets out of control. (Salicylic acid again, to keep skin clear, hyaluronic acid to preserve moisture, peptides to calm the buildup, and a vitamin B3 derivative, niacinamide, to minimize redness and irritation.) The ingredients dissolve into the skin over two hours, and save face for the next couple weeks.

[$ 29; zitsticka.com]

You can also try Patchology’s Breakout Box 3-In-1 Acne Treatment Kit for a trio of blemish-fighting patches and strips. Theirs includes 24 salicylic acid dots to shrink pimples; 24 hydrocolloid dots to treat whiteheads; and three nose strips to clear blackheads.

[$ 20; patchology.com]

2. Skin Regimen 1.0 Tea Tree Booster

There are multiple ways to use Skin Regimen’s complexion-clearing tea tree booster. Oily skin types can apply it to their entire face in the evening (after cleansing). Once it absorbs, go to sleep: You’ll wake to smaller pores come morning. If you’re breaking out en masse—or experiencing one-off zits—cleanse the skin, then apply this booster to each individual spot for targeted healing. Regardless of use, follow with a heavy-duty night cream to lock in moisture and expedite overnight healing. The booster itself combines tea tree oil to neutralize and calm blemishes while mandelic acid dissolves dead skin cells and smooths complexion.

[$ 115; skinregimen.com]

3. Votary Blemish Oil

One drop does the trick: Votary’s plant-based blemish oil targets pimples and dark spots with salicylic acid (again, to dissolve dead cells and unclog pores), plus an oil blend of tamanu, white rice, and oat (to calm irritation and promote cellular turnover). First, cleanse your skin, then apply a single drop to a fingertip, massaging it into the blemish with circular motions. Do this twice daily to speed healing.

[$ 52; spacenk.com]

4. SLMD Salicylic Acid Body Spray

Clearly salicylic acid is the ingredient to check when neutralizing breakouts. It’s packed into this body spray for bacne breakouts from SLMD (the skincare brand from Dr. Sandra Lee, a.k.a. Dr. Pimple Popper). Just give your back an even coat—or ask a very loyal friend/roommate/partner to do the task—and it’ll work to minimize all kinds of pimples, from whiteheads to blackheads to inflammation, and even dark spots leftover from past breakouts. This is a perfect post-gym companion, too, to prevent clogged pores. (Apply it after your shower.) Better yet, the spray is packed with olive leaf, rosemary leaf, and papaya extracts, as well as allantoin and probiotics, all to hydrate, soothe, balance, and protect your skin.

[$ 38; slmdskincare.com]

5. CVS Health Acne Treatment Gel

If you have persistent acne (moderate, but not necessarily chronic), one of the things your dermatologist might prescribe is a benzoyl peroxide gel. These come in various grades, which is why it’s good to talk to your doc, but they’re also available over the counter for milder cases. Apply this gel to the targeted areas; it fights acne-causing bacteria. Benzoyl also dries the area to prevent oil buildup. Monitor results closely, and be warned that it also stains towels and pillow cases. But, most importantly, it works, and at a low cost.  

[$ 6.29; cvs.com

6. Peter Thomas Roth AHA/BHA Acne Clearing Gel

BHA stands for beta hydroxy acid, and it’s often used as a placeholder name for—you guessed it—salicylic acid. As far as things are concerned in Peter Thomas Roth’s excellent skin-clearing product, AHAs and BHAs both work to dissolve dead skin and promote healthy cellular turnover. Apply this gel across affected areas after you cleanse your skin, 1-3 times daily as needed—but always before bed, since you’ll maximize its benefits while you sleep. It also deploys aloe vera and vitamin A to soothe skin and fight signs of aging (like fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots leftover from blemishes). 

[$ 54; peterthomasroth.com

Courtesy image

7. Renée Rouleau Anti Bump Solution

Oh, the misery of cystic acne. Those deep, underground bumps that throb and linger for weeks at a time can often require weeks to heal (and, in some cases, cortisone shots). But with this powerful serum, your face has a fighting chance to clear the blemish up to 50% faster. The clear serum is made from ethyl lactate to get deep into the pore to start calming the cyst, while methyl gluceth 20 eases inflammation and redness, and citric acid exfoliates dead skin, helping to avoid any scars.

[$ 47.50; reneerouleau.com]

Courtesy Image

8. Epionce Purifying Wash

This invigorating cleanser harnesses the power of spearmint oil (to diminish acne while keeping skin hydrated with antioxidants), menthol (to calm and cool skin), willow bark extract (a botanical source of salicylic acid), and, of course, salicylic acid (to cleanse pores and diminish dark spots). Use it in the morning to help keep skin clear, and pair it with Epionce’s Purifying Spot Gel at night to target stubborn acne.

The Best Performance Socks for Running, Golfing, and Everything in Between

Socks are often an afterthought. But if you think of the foot as one of the most important parts of the human body—it supports your full weight, keeps you upright, and helps you twist, turn, walk, run, jump, and more—socks become a hell of a lot more important, huh? And the more time you spend on the court (or trails or treadmill), the more you realize that skimping on footwear can be a true detriment to performance, increasing your risk of blisters, pain, and even injury. Plus, no one wants to strip off wet, soggy socks post-workout. You need performance socks.


Hit the Gym in the Best New Training Gear of 2019 (So Far)

Fortunately, dressing your dogs doesn’t have to mean scouring department store shelves for the latest sport offerings . There are plenty of high-end brands with affordable options you can shop online. Here are seven of the best performance socks for the most common sports and disciplines. Put your feet first so you can focus on the game.

Best Coolers

1. Balega Blister Resist No Show Running Socks

Best for: running

Runners know cotton socks have no place in a training routine. And once you become a sock snob—i.e. you’ve slipped on Balega’s performance socks—there’s no going back.  Most of their options are made with comfortable mohair fiber, have moisture-wicking tech against blisters, and varying amounts of padding. We like Blister Resist, the company’s anti-blister line, which lives up to its name—even in soaking-wet marathons.

[$ 13; balega.com

Balega

2. Bombas Performance Golf Ankle Sock

Best for: golf

Bombas’ new line of golf socks puts comfort first (think: extra padding at the arch) so you won’t be limping around after a day on the links. The under-toe area—where your dogs tend to sweat and overheat the most (if you use Athlete’s Foot spray, you’re familiar)—is built with mesh, too, to keep you cool and (hopefully) dry, important for those balmy days on the course.

[$ 16; bombas.com]

3. Pedestal 4.0 weightlifting socks

Best for: weightlifting

Bad socks slip and slide, show stains, wind up smelling, and hole up after an unacceptably low amount of wear. Pedestal’s socks? They’re designed to be worn sans shoes. They’ve got an open toe box, which means you’ve got room to spread out for stability, plus they’re sticky enough to keep you rooted in your stance during heavy lifts. Better yet, thanks to an antimicrobial silver treatment, you only have to wash them every two to three workouts (and the treatment works against bacteria for at least 50 washes). These bad boys are known to sell out, so invest ASAP.

[$ 29.99; pedestalfootwear.com]

4. Zensah Match Point Tennis Socks

Best for: tennis

Ask a tennis player: The quick stops and starts, lateral movements, and sprint work of the sport call for a special kind of sock—namely one that can stand up to serious sweat and protect your feet from the demand of fast movements. Zensah’s Match Point Tennis Socks are padded where you need shock absorption (the heel and forefront) but tight at the top—a practical requirement for play. You’ll minimize slipping and impact and maximize support at your ankle. Don’t want to go all white? They’ve got a sleek black and neon yellow colorway as well.

[$ 15.99; zensah.com]

5. Swiftwick Aspire Zero cycling socks

Best for: cycling

Cyclists have never gone wrong with Swiftwick’s favorite compression sock, the Aspire. It’s latest version, Zero, a no-show option that sits just above your shoe (so no blisters), delivers what you’ve always loved: just-tight-enough compression that works to alleviate the fatigue of endurance work. They’re especially great on hot days when you don’t want to rock a calf sock.

[$ 13.99; swiftwick.com]

6. SmartWool PhD Outdoor Light Print Crew hiking socks

Best for: hiking

Thru-hikers and day-trippers alike know that wool isn’t just a winter thing when it comes to socks—and that, with a little bit of foresight and research, packing an extra pair of socks for a day in the mountains isn’t always necessary. SmartWool PhD Outdoor Light Print Crew socks are crafted with merino wool, a strong, stink-free  fabric that naturally heats and cools, meaning it stands up to finicky spring weather and long days of work. It’s versatile enough to work with whatever trail shoe you’ve got and the crew length pairs with low trail boots and sneakers alike, protecting your lower legs from sticks and branches. Trippy new patterns help you stand out (in a good way), too.

[$ 22.95; smartwool.com]

7. RDX MMA Grip Socks

Best for: wrestling/MMA

These neoprene socks are part clothes for your feet, part brace support, part performance must. In short, they let you take your footwork to new heights. The underfoot grips for the mat prevent slips and maximize traction, lessening the likelihood of twisted ankles or injured tendons.

The Best Grooming Products for Oily Hair

Look, some scalps are just oily. And when the hairs grow up and out of that scalp, they tend to be oily, too. It’s a fact of life, and nothing to be ashamed of.

If your scalp—and your hair—are on the oilier side of life, then you’re quite familiar with the symptoms: The main one is looking like you haven’t shampooed for 3 weeks, despite having washed your hair five hours ago. Your hair is rarely voluminous and texturized, because it’s weighed down by the rapid sebum production in your scalp. And then, when you do shampoo, it’s parched and dull, at the other end of the spectrum. (For all of a few hours, before it’s greasy again.)


The Hardest-Working SPF Face Moisturizers for Men

It’s easy to combat this higher-than-most oil production, and in some cases, the scalp can be “reset” or trained to produce less sebum. Just put the following products to work (along with the advice scattered throughout), and you should be on your way to healthy, hydrated, controlled hairstyles—on the daily.

1. Old Spice Pure Sport Dry Shampoo

You already know and love Old Spice’s Pure Sport deodorant. The same classic aroma fills the air as you apply this dry shampoo (and it lingers throughout the day, too). But that’s not the only reason you’ll love this product: Better yet, it soaks up excess oil at the roots of your hair, preventing you from having to shampoo entirely. Sometimes shampoo renders your hair unstylable, because the strands are too clean to create texture, and that’s not a fate you deserve. So, alternate shampooing to every other day, and put this dry shampoo to use on the days between. It’ll volumize and thicken hair.

[$ 5.99; amazon.com]

2. American Crew Daily Shampoo

For the days you do shampoo, pick one that’s gentle enough to use daily, even if you’re alternating wash days. There’s a reason so many salons rely on American Crew, as the brand’s shampoo leaves hair clean but also style-ready. It’s packed with sage leaf and chamomile, too, to calm and nourish the scalp, and minimize bacterial buildup and odor from all that excess oil.

3. Rahua Voluminous Conditioner

You need to condition every day, whether you shampoo or not. And Rahua’s volumizing conditioner is a stellar pick, since it moisturizes and plumps the hair like it was just blow-dried. Gone are the days when your oily hair was weighed down and lifeless. If you shampoo even less than every other day (many guys only wash once or twice a week), then this conditioner doubles as a great co-washer, where it still removes much of the dirt, grime, and excess oil without stripping any moisture. This is a good way to “re-train” your hair to produce less oil, too: Don’t shampoo as much, but flush and hydrate daily with an enriching conditioner.

4. R + Co Badlands Dry Shampoo Paste

This paste + dry shampoo hybrid styler excels at volumizing and texturizing. Apply it to dry hair on a non-shampoo day. It absorbs oil while leaving a defined, lightweight, matte finish in its wake. Or, put it into towel-dried hair for the same volumizing effects.

5. OUAI Oily Hair 90-Day Supplement

You can retrain your scalp to produce less oil—seriously. By shampooing less, you signal that the scalp should produce less sebum. This doesn’t mean that you’re going to rid yourself of the matter entirely, but it does help you get to the literal (and figurative) root of the problem. It just takes a couple months for the habit to show its result.

These pills are another way to “reset” the scalp, or to aid the process. A blend of green tea extract, vitamin A, and niacin work to regulate sebum glands. There’s also biotin and amino acids for fortified growth, as well as omega 3s to boost natural shine and definition—but not in the way that excessive oil ever did. Take them for 90 days, which is as many pills come in the pouch, while maintaining a lessened shampoo regimen. You should experience a far less oily disposition as result.

6. V76 by Vaughn 4-in-1 Cleansing Foam

You can use this gel foam for all the essential steps in your regimen: Shampoo, shave, cleanser, and body wash. That’s because it’s loaded with nourishing ingredients like coconut oil and antioxidants like bamboo stem extract, as well as the cooling finish of menthol. The result is an instant “reset” on oil, minus any drying out.

[$ 22; v76.com]

Courtesy Image

7. Bumble and bumble Prêt-à-Powder

Sometimes, dry shampoo is a spray. Sometimes it’s a styling paste. And sometimes, it’s a powder, as is this Bumble and bumble product. A hybrid of silicone powder, corn + tapioca starch, and oat flour absorbs oil at the roots, and adds instant volume and texture to your style. Sprinkle it directly (and carefully) onto the scalp, or onto your comb. However, it’s most important to target the roots, just as with an aerosol dry shampoo. This is where the excess sebum collects, weighing hair down at the base. If your entire head is oily, then it’s time to shampoo in the shower.

The Best Dive Watches for Every Budget

Whether you’re looking to save or splurge on a new watch, the smart way to get your money’s worth is to find one that’s not only sharp, but versatile, too. If you’re not sure where to start, dive watches are always a smart choice. “They’re built to withstand the pressures of a deep-sea dive, but are often inspired by classic designs,” says watch expert and stylist Seth Howard. “So, they look just as good with a two-piece suit as they do with a dive suit.” Whether you’re looking for something sporty or sophisticated, we’ve assembled a comprehensive list of the coolest amphibious timepieces on the market—from most affordable ($ 100) to the most luxe (around $ 5,000).

Men’s Dive Watches for Every Budget

Timex Allied Coastline Dive Watch

This classic dive watch combines all the features you need—100-meter water resistance, a rotating bezel to track your oxygen, and INDIGLO backlight—with the sporty blue dial and sweat-proof fabric strap. Best of all, it’s under $ 100. [$ 99; timex.com]

Courtesy Image

Hugo Boss Men’s Ocean Edition Dive Watch

If you’re more of a landlubber than an ocean explorer, opt for this watch that looks great with a casual denim jacket—or a polished wool top coat. The secret is the mesh stainless steel bracelet that’s sure to catch eyes and garner compliments at your next outing. [$ 245; macys.com]

Courtesy Image

Nixon Descender Sport Dive Watch

Even the smallest innovation can make a watch stand out from the rest. This one packs a few: a hardened mineral crystal with anti-glare treatment, sweatproof thermoplastic strap, and a crown placed at 9 o’clock so it won’t hit your wrist when you’re breaking a sweat. [$ 350; nixon.com]

Courtesy Image

Luminox Navy SEAL Chronograph Dive Watch

This might be the most badass, functional watch on this list. But don’t take our word for it. Navy SEALs have been wearing Luminox watches for decades. Its carbon compound case is nearly indestructible, its crystal unscratchable, and its hour markers will glow for up to 25 years. [$ 495; luminox-usa.com]

Courtesy Image

Mido Ocean Star Caliber 80 Titanium Dive Watch

Not only does this watch have a sweatproof orange rubber strap that pops on your wrist, it’s also one of the most affordable automatic watches out there. That means it’s powered by the movement of your wrist, so you’ll never need to replace the battery. [$ 1000; us.shopmido.com]

Courtesy Image

G-Shock Master of G Dive Watch

Want to pack as many features into your watch as possible? Go digital. In addition to your standard complications, this shock-resistant, solar-powered model features key dive features like a digital compass, thermometer, and G-Shock’s first-ever depth gauge. [$ 1,050; gshock.com]

Oris Aquis Date Dive Watch

This sharp and sporty automatic dive watch has a classic stainless steel exterior and a modern blue dial. Its day/date corrector means constant adjusting your watch is a thing of the past, and it’s water resistant up to roughly 1,000 feet. [$ 2,000; oris.ch]

Courtesy Image

TAG Heuer Aquaracer Quartz Dive Watch

Equal parts polished and performance-focused, this dive-inspired chronograph will help you keep time with swagger. Its three sporty subdials give it a sharp, complex feel, and its bracelet has a built-in extension to help it fit comfortably over your suit—dive or not. [$ 2,200; tagheuer.com]

Courtesy Image

Seiko Prospex Dive Watch

Sure, people will notice this limited-edition watch’s stylish green dial and bezel, but what they won’t see at first glance are the scratch-proof, anti-reflective crystal, illuminated hands and hours indexes, or the 27-jewel, automatic movement with a 50-hour duration. [$ 3,250; seiko.com]

Courtesy Image

Tudor Black Bay Fifty-Eight Dive Watch

This classic diver’s design was inspired by the very the first Tudor dive watches from the 1950s, with their signature snowflake hour hand and gold detailing on the dial. Bonus: It comes with your choice of stainless steel bracelet, brown leather strap, or black fabric strap. [$ 3,575; tudorwatch.com]

Courtesy Image

Panerai Radiomir Black Seal Logo Dive Watch

First made for the Italian Royal Navy, Panerai watches are made with divers in mind. Its illuminated hour markers are plainly visible from any angle, and its large crown is easy to wind—even with a dive suit on. But fair warning, it’s 45-millimeter case is not for the faint of heart. [$ 4,300; panerai.com]

Courtesy Image

Bremont S500 Blue Dive Watch

Typically an aviation watch brand, Bremont has been making performance dive watches for the past decade, and they stand up to the very best in the industry. This model features a scratch-resistant case, anti-shock mount, and a movement so precise it’s a certified chronometer. [$ 4,495; us.bremont.com]

Courtesy Image

Omega Seamaster Diver 300m Dive Watch

You might recognize the Seamaster as the watch James Bond has worn in every movie since the mid-’90s. This version has a PVD ceramic case with engraved wave details, illuminated skeleton hands, and a helium escape valve to withstand even the deepest of dives. [$ 4,850; omegawatches.com]

Courtesy Image

Breitling Superocean Héritage II B20 Automatic Dive Watch

This automatic, 44-millimeter beauty’s design is brilliantly inspired by the original from 1957. Its precise movement makes it a certified chronometer, with your choice of classic stainless steel mesh bracelet or a sporty black rubber strap with easy-off folding clasp. [$ 4,885; breitling.com]

IWC Schaffhausen Aquatimer Automatic Edition “Expedition Jacques-Yves Cousteau Dive Watch

OK, so we’re technically cheating with the price of this one, but we couldn’t leave out this gorgeous timepiece made by IWC in partnership with the Cousteau Society. Not only does it look sharp as hell, but it’s built to perform with an automatic movement, chamfered dial, and a two-bezel SafeDive system. Additionally, part of the proceeds of each Cousteau watch go toward protected marine areas in the late diver’s honor. [$ 5,600; iwc.com]

The Best Grooming Products to Transform Dry Hair

If you have dry hair, you experience less grime and buildup than guys who have scalps that produce more oil (which is basically like a natural, all-day leave-in conditioner). That means your hair can often become brittle, wilting, and prone to breaking, making it harder to style.


The 7 Best Products for Thick, Wiry Hair

Like overly oily or thinning hair, it’s entirely possible to personalize your grooming regimen to overcome your natural dryness, and to condition the hair so it stays soft and stylable, You’ve got your work cut out for you, but with the proper products and regimen, it’s smooth sailing.

Here are some of our favorites—consider it a push in the right direction.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jack Black MP10 Nourishing Oil

With a blend of 10 natural oils (argan, marula, and grape seed are the most prominent), this oil works on hair, beards, faces, and more. Use it with your usual go-to styling product; it delivers the necessary nourishment to keep strands soft yet defined all day—and with a natural shine to boot. You can also use it on its own if you have longer hair to tame frizz and flyaways. It’ll nurture dryer-than-usual ends to prevent splitting, too.

[$ 35; getjackblack.com]

Shu Uemura Absolue Overnight Hair Serum

An overnight hair mask that won’t stain your pillows, Shu Uemura’s serum absorbs quick and delivers high-powered nourishment to hair. It can tame the effects of humidity (i.e. frizz), while preserving natural shine and buoyancy. You can go right into your styling regimen in the morning, since there’s no need to rinse it out.

[$ 69; shuuemuraartofhair-usa.com]

American Crew Matte Styling Cream

Don’t be befuddled by the key ingredients in American Crew’s styling cream. Panthenol is a B5 derivative that strengthens the hair and thickens its appearance, and benzophenones help shield it from environmental damage. Together, they add moisture and prevent anything from compromising hydration levels throughout the day. You’ll get shine-free, lightweight, medium-hold style as a bonus.

[$ 15; americancrew.com]

Kiehl’s Damage Repairing & Rehydrating Leave-In Conditioner

Mix a few drops of Kiehl’s leave-in conditioner with your daily styler, or use it as a lightweight styling cream on its own. It’s loaded with ceramides, hyaluronic acid, and moringa oil, a trio that delivers and preserves moisture and defends hair against the elements. (If you use a blow dryer, you can also apply it before drying, so it helps shield from heat damage. But also, you should pick up an ionic dryer, per our tip at the end of this list.) This product will keep hair hydrated and soft all day; it’s the perfect complement to a nightly serum.

[$ 25; kiehls.com]

Davines MOMO Shampoo

This gentle gel shampoo pulls away excess grime and product without compromising the hair’s natural moisture. “What moisture?” you ask. Touché, but since you still need to wash your head, do it with a shampoo like Davines’, which uses cartucciaru melon to soften and nourish hair, as well as a host of ingredients to strengthen and protect it: Vitamin A and C, sinc, potassium, and phosphorus.

[$ 28; davines.com]

Hair Rituel by Sisley Restructuring Conditioner

If you’re super serious about fighting back against stubborn, dry hair, then use Sisley’s conditioner. With Vitamin B5, shea and coconut oils, as well as cotton proteins, it resuscitates dry, lifeless hair. In an instant, it feels fuller, softer, and more cooperative.

[$ 75; sisley-paris.com]

Courtesy Image

Parlux 385 Powerlight Ionic Hair Dryer

If you use a hair dryer to style your hair, invest in an ionic one. They dry hair quickly without the same heat-damaging effects of other devices. This one from Parlux is a great pick. It dries hair from the inside out. It’s also low-volume, lightweight, and high-powered, so you can tote it on trips and spend less time on your morning regimen.

The 7 Best Products for Thick, Wiry Hair

Some guys would do anything to have thick hair, but not you: You’d trade a limb if it meant you could find the right thick hair products to keep your full and furious mane under control. You watch with envy as other guys go through the day with effortless, weightless styles, while you contemplate a permanent buzz-cut just to save your sanity.


The 7 Best Curly Hair Products for Great Hair Days Every Day

Don’t give in to the clippers yet, though. You just have to learn how to tame the mane, and there are plenty of thick hair products to help you do it. With these simple additions to your hair care and styling routine, your perspective on thick, wiry locks will definitely change for the better.

 

Kevin Murphy Smooth Again Conditioner

Kevin Murphy’s conditioner uses keratin proteins to soften and smoothen thick, unruly hair. With a blend of oils and butters (like cocoa seed butter, Brazil nut butter, and monoi oil), it hydrates, tames any curls, minimizes breakage, and defends against split ends and frizzing. Use it daily to keep hair soft and smooth, and since it washes away grime, you can reduce shampoo usage to once per week.

[Available at salons; Salon Locator]

Function of Beauty Leave-In Treatment

Complete Function Of Beauty’s questionnaire, and you’ll get a unique shampoo and conditioner for your specific hair type. Now you can also add a leave-in treatment to your order, which will increase the nourishing and softening effects of the shampoo and conditioner. Just comb it into your hair like a styling cream and wear it all day long. It tames hair while keeping it hydrated, and it shields each strand from UV exposure.

[$ 18; functionofbeauty.com]

Courtesy Image

Bumble and Bumble Thick (H)air Styler

Unruly as it may be, thick hair can actually minimize the time you spend on your styling regimen. This is a heat-free cream styler, which means you apply it to towel-dried hair and let it set to avoid the drying and volumizing effects of a blow dryer. It softens, tames, de-frizzes, prevents split ends, and blocks UV rays, too.

[$ 31; sephora.com]

Courtesy Image

Olaplex Hair Perfector No. 3

Before you wash or condition your hair, first rinse it clean and then comb in some of Olaplex’s Hair Perfector. Let it set for 10 minutes, and then continue with your usual regimen. The treatment was formulated by two chemists who formulated it with ingredients that relax, soften, and fortify the structure of the hair, making it more cooperative—finally.

[$ 28; sephora.com]

Courtesy Image

Baxter of California Grooming Cream

Guys with wiry hair can approach stylers in one of two ways: First, you can use a soft product that adds shine and definition without actually taming anything aside from frizz. These will showcase the volume and strength of your hair, but they’re not going to lock it into place. Baxter of California’s Grooming Cream is one such product. Typically we’d recommend it to guys with finer, more relaxed hair, but it’s just as useful if you use it with the right intentions. Add a touch of hair oil to it, too, if you want even more shine to pop through.

[$ 20; baxterofcalifornia.com]

Courtesy Image

Firsthand Clay Pomade

On the other hand, you probably want a high-hold styler for most days—something that will let you lock in a combed-back style without worrying about it coming undone by noon. Firsthand’s Clay Pomade is exactly that. It gives you a matte finish, and you can use it to prop up more volumized styles. If you like the product but want more shine, drop in a pinch of hair oil.

[$ 20; firsthandsupply.com]

Courtesy Image

Old Spice Beard Oil

Sure, it’s made for beards, but this oil is also great for the thick and wiry hair on your head, too. The argan-oil blend helps tame flyaways and prevent split ends, and it adds a little shine and definition to your thick texture. Just put one or two drops into your palm along with a matte styler and apply them together.

The 7 Best Curly Hair Products for Great Hair Days Every Day

When you have naturally curly hair, “perfect hair days” are often few and far between. That’s because each unruly strand has its own agenda—as do external forces like humidity, dehydration, and sun damage. To deal with this, you need curly hair products that can keep your locks hydrated but not weighed down, lifelike but also under control.


How to Get Justin Theroux’s Tousled Hair and Beard Style

That means stocking up on the right shampoo, conditioner, humidity shield, styler, and tools, and dedicating a few extra minutes each morning to applying them—it’ll spare you the frizz and fuss throughout the day. Here are our recs for the best curly hair products to try out.

SheaMoisture Detangling Shampoo

If your curls are coiled or afro-textured, they can shrink down and turn lifeless without proper nourishment. SheaMoisture’s sulfate-free shampoo doesn’t just flush away grime and grease; it also bathes hair with coconut oil, cocoa butter, red palm oil, and flaxseed oil. Together, these ingredients hydrate hair and preserve its volume and texture while shielding it from environmental damage and preventing tangles.

[$ 12; sheamoisture.com]

Courtesy Image

Davines Love Curl Shampoo

Fueled by almond extract, Davines’ Love Curl Shampoo preserves the buoyancy of wavy and curly hair. It also delivers a hint of natural shine to each strand, so your hair’s fullness and depth will be on full display. Unlike many other shampoos, this protein- and vitamin-rich formula adds moisture back into the hair (still, as with any shampoo, it’s important to follow a wash with a conditioner).

[$ 28; us.davines.com]

Courtesy Image

Sachajuan Curl Conditioner

We don’t advise washing your hair every day, since it can strip your hair of its natural, healthy oils. But you may need to do it more often than the average person, since those oils can also weigh curly hair down and compromise natural volume. Your best friend is a daily conditioning product that pumps nutrients back into the hair after a wash, or between washes. Sachajuan’s Curl Conditioner uses the brand’s propietary Ocean Silk Technology to lock in moisture and emphasize the volume and texture of your curls. Just comb it into your hair—in the shower or out—and rinse after one to two minutes.

[$ 31; sachajuan.com]

Courtesy Image

Bumble and bumble Curl Defining Creme

Part styler, part leave-in conditioner, this cream helps define curls while blocking damaging UV rays and preventing frizz caused by humidity and dehydration. The oil- and humectant-packed formula keeps the hairs in line—leaving plenty of room for effortless movement. It’s most effective when applied to dry or towel-dried hair, then blown dry with a diffuser.

[$ 31; bumbleandbumble.com]

Courtesy Image

Ouai Wave Spray

This spray uses rice proteins to texturize (that also means it’s safe to use on color-treated hair) and it lifts hair instead of weighing it down like other products do. It’s formulated to tame your locks and prevent them from coming undone during the day, and it adds a natural shine as well.

[$ 26; theouai.com]

Courtesy Image

Bio Ionic 10X Ultralight Speed Dryer

Often the best way to maintain control over your unruly curls is to blow dry them into place. Bio Ionic’s dryer does this in less time, preventing heat damage and preserving the moisture and shine in each strand. But to really treat your curls right, grab a diffuser attachment, which concentrates the hot air into smaller pockets to dry thick, curly hair more evenly.

[Blow dryer $ 29; Diffuser $ 24; sephora.com]

Courtesy Image

Living Proof Humidity Shield

Humidity can ruin even the best hair day. That’s why you should have a humidity-shielding spray at the ready, and apply it at the end of your daily haircare regimen. Living Proof’s spray uses a humidity-resistant polymer that blocks both unwanted moisture and UV rays for frizz and sun protection. It helps condition the hair, too, so it won’t detract from any other products you’ve applied to your curls.

Good Hair Day: The 5 Best Hair Products for Men

Turns out, there’s an easy solution for or all of the most common hair problems. You just need the perfect product. But even for specific issues like dry scalp or thinning hair, there are a whole store-load of hair products that claim big benefits. Sorting through the sea of creams, shampoos, and spritzes can be a bit daunting. We’re here to help.


The 5 Most Effective Ways to Regrow Thinning Hair

We’ve narrowed the field and focused on five problems underlying most bad hair days: frizzy hair, thinning hair, styling unruly locks, dehydration, and dry scalp. These five hair products will address those issues and keep your head looking and feeling great.

Martial Vivot Creme

Tame Frizz

To control flyaway hairs and frizz, skip heavy-duty pomades and grab this mild cream instead. It offers hold without weighing down hair, and the aloe-based formula conditions and moisturizes.

This styling product is light to the touch, yet offers plenty of hold for men with coarse hair. Ingredients like kaolin (a white clay) and vitamin B5 make manes pliable. Apply on damp hair for more control.

Whether your head is dehydrated from styling or time spent in the sun, the natural extracts like cotton and grape leaf help get it healthy again. Generously spritz over towel-dried hair, comb through, then dry and style like normal.

Akamai 3-in-1 Bar

Gold Medal Ski-Lodge Style: The Best Après-ski Looks for Men

On the mountain, technical gear is key. But once you’re done shredding for the day, it’s about comfort—and looking good. Below you’ll find our picks for the best clothes to wear away from the slopes.

The Best Ways to Heal Acne Scars, According to Dermatologists

When a pimple goes away and leaves a permanent scar in its place—one that appears as an imperfection in the skin—it can be devastating to imagine yourself dealing with it indefinitely. When it comes to healing acne scars, it’s important to get a few opinions—and know what you’re dealing with.

 

 

Ultimately, there are two categories. First up: textural irregularities. These are permanent divots that can take various forms on the surface of your skin.

Acne causes inflammation, which destroys the collagen in your skin, says Benjamin Garden, M.D., of Chicago Laser Dermatology. “These irregularities can be very difficult to treat, and there’s nothing that’ll make them fully disappear.” But they can be minimized.


The 5 Most Effective Ways to Regrow Thinning Hair

The second type of scarring is “residual hyperpigmentation,” or dark spots (brown or red) that embed themselves in the skin and take months or even years to heal. They can go away on their own, though the process can be expedited with the right regimen or additional treatment.

Regardless of which type of scarring you’re looking to heal, “the first step is to stop all active acne breakouts,” says Gabriel Martínez-Díaz, M.D., of M.D. Aesthetics & Dermatology. “I try to maximize the combination of medical therapies, such as Accutane (aka isotretinoin, an oral retinol treatment), with numerous minimally invasive procedures. (Read on for examples of some, and visit your dermatologist for the best treatment plan for you, as some drugs like isotretinoins may have adverse side effects.)

Once your existing acne is gone—or if you’re just targeting individual scars with otherwise clear skin— it’s time to address how to minimize the appearance of dark spots and divots. We spoke with numerous board-certified dermatologists for the methods they most often prescribe to their patients.


The 7 Best Customized Hair, Skin, and Cologne Brands for Men

How to Treat Residual Discoloration

Retinol: “My first line of defense is topical retinoids,” says Susan Bard, M.D., of Vive Dermatology. “In addition to combating active acne, it also helps fade any dark marks left behind by the acne and also stimulates collagen production to help fill in some of the depressed scars.” Apply a prescription-strength topical retinoid to your face every night. This should be part of the skincare regimen you use for the rest of your life.

Chemical Peels: “Chemical peels help control acne and help fade dark marks as well as stimulate collagen deposition,” says Bard. Sometimes, the fastest way to a smoother complexion is to “resurface” your face altogether. Chemical peels help “shed” the older surface layer of the skin with a chemical agent. The younger skin underneath is brighter, more youthful, and often smoother in complexion. In theory, you’re getting rid of that dark spot by surfacing healthier cells.

SPF + Patience: While it’s not helpful to hear, your dark spots just need time to heal. However, Sara Moghaddam, M.D., of Vive Dermatology Surgery & Aesthetics, stresses the importance of using SPFs daily, in order to shield the dark spots from the sun. While it may seem like a nice tan will “mask” the dark spot, it’ll only worsen the discoloration. By shielding the skin from UV rays, you’ll heal faster.

Lasers: “For those patients who don’t wish to wait the months (or even years) for the color to fade, there are a variety of laser systems that can help diminish the color quicker,” says Benjamin Garden, M.D., of Physicians Laser and Dermatology Institute. “These lasers target the blood vessels that leave a red spot, or target the pigment in the skin that makes a dark mark. These laser systems are very powerful and should only be performed by a doctor who has the proper training.”


Can Men Use Women’s Skincare Products?

How to Treat Textural Irregularities (Boxcar, Rolling, or Ice Pick Acne Scars)

Sunscreen + Retinol: “Sunscreen and retinols are baseline,” reminds Avnee Shah, M.D., of The Dermatology Group in New Jersey. Add these habits into your daily regimen, and never abandon them. They work to thwart further damage from the sun, and smooth and firm the skin over time by stimulating collagen (while preventing additional acne, too).

Microneedling With or Without Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP): “Microneedling works by creating micro-injuries a few millimeters into the skin,” says Shah. “This promotes collagen remodeling, which allows scarring to improve.” (More on this in a bit.)

“I love microneedling for acne scars,” adds Lilly-Rose Paraskevas, M.D., of Rose Dermatology. “With every treatment, the scars are shallower and less noticeable. Even the redness within the scars can be improved. Unlike some laser treatments, there’s no risk of burns or discoloration from microneedling.”

Many doctors will combine this with platelet-rich plasma (PRP), which involves the extraction of your own plasma (by first drawing the blood and separating the plasma in one session), and injecting it into the area to stimulate healing. (PRP can be paired with laser therapy, too.)

“Lately I’ve been stunned by the combination of microneedling with radiofrequency, when used alone or in conjunction with PRP,” says Martinez-Diaz. “I’ve been using the device Secret RF by Cutera with outstanding results. The device enables me to treat a wide variety of acne scars in different depths.” Just note you’ll need a series of treatments, so it can get a bit pricy, but it’s worth it.

“PRP heals the acne scars even faster and leads to reduced inflammation and overall improvement of skin tone,” adds Matthew Elias, D.O., of Elias Dermatology. “It’s by far one of the most popular treatments in our office.”


How to Pop a Pimple (and When to Leave Your Face Alone)

Lasers: Lasers are another frequently used solution for permanent scars, and they penetrate the skin much like a microneedle to stimulate collagen production and smoothness. “When looking at lasers, I like either a Fraxel or something like an Erbium for deeper scars (Sciton Joule is the class leader here),” says Dhaval Bhanusali, M.D. Ask your own dermatologist about these options for his or her feedback on your specific condition. “Fraxel has a 3-4 day downtime and patients usually need 3-5 treatments, whereas the Erbium laser has more like a 7-10 day downtime and patients see significant improvement in 1-2 sessions,” Bhanusali says.

Certain fractional lasers, such as the Erbium, can often target just the damaged skin, while leaving healthy cells intact. The CO2 laser is another option: “If you have ‘ice pick’ scars, as in the deep, narrow kind, then Fractionated CO2 laser treatments are best,” says Anne Marie McNeill, M.D., of Newport Beach Dermatology & Plastic Surgery. “It gives a permanent improvement in scars and also in general skin texture.”

Fillers: You can inject collagen into the skin, and these fillers will “lift” certain areas so the skin appears more smooth, plumping up some of those indentations. This works best for wider scars, called “rolling” scars, says McNeill. For this, she says to ask your dermatologist about fillers, such as Bellafill. In many cases, Bellafill treatments can last 5-10 years.

“Bellafill affords a long-term solution to acne scars by adding volume to the scar and keeping it at the same level as the surrounding tissue,” adds Elias.

Speak to your dermatologist about the type of scarring you have, and the best type of treatment available.

Karl Lagerfeld’s Best Chanel Red Carpet Looks of All Time

Karl Lagerfeld has designed no shortage of memorable red carpet looks.
The late Chanel fashion designer was tasked with dressing both his muses, such as Cara Delevingne and Keira Knightley, along with A-list celebrities during awards season, including Emma Stone and Margot Robbie.

No stranger to the Met Gala red carpet, Lagerfeld was responsible for the looks for both Yara Shahidi and Lily-Rose Depp’s first times attending the annual costume event. Shahidi, for example, attended her first Met Gala last year wearing a Chanel Couture tulle dress with an intricate full-length beading.

Chanel spokeswomen, Julianne Moore and Marion Cotillard, also have a long history of being dressed in Lagerfeld’s creations. Most notably, Moore picked up her first Academy Award in 2015 wearing a Chanel Couture gown made with 80,000 sequins.

The 7 Best Customized Hair, Skin, and Cologne Brands for Men

In the grooming industry, 2019 will be known as the year of customized care. More and more brands are allowing consumers to identify concerns and goals as they pertain to skin, hair, hygiene, and more.

 

 

They ask you to complete online questionnaires—some simple, some insanely extensive—and pack their products with ingredients, and even scents, that address your wants and needs on a granular level. After all, if you’ve got curly, coarse, and oily hair as well as dandruff, your shampoo and conditioner should have different ingredients than the guy with straight, fine hair with no flaking. Think of all the possible skincare combinations, too, when you factor in oil levels, age, environmental factors, and more.

Here are seven brands that helped launch the phenomenon, and each company’s approach to customized products. If you’re less than satisfied with your current regimen, it might be time to invest in something tailored precisely to you.


The Best Men’s Grooming Products to Take on the Go

 

Function Of

What it’s for: Customized hair care

The Function Of Beauty site prompts you to create your hair profile. Is it wavy, curly, or straight? Is it fine or coarse? Oily or dry, or neither? Next, you input up to five “hair goals”, which could be anything from soothing your scalp to volumizing, oil control to minimizing frizz. This all determines which ingredients go into each product. You pick individual colors for your shampoo and conditioner set, as well as a scent, and the brand even prints your name on the side of each bottle. Costs vary depending on the sizes you order, but if you get 16 oz. bottles of shampoo and conditioner (which should last 3 months), it’s under $ 50.

Curology

What it’s for: Customized skincare

Curology’s online quiz asks about your major skincare concerns and goals, then generates a “superbottle” night cream just for you (once a dermatologist reviews your results). Apply it before you sleep, so your skin’s overnight regenerative cycle works with the product to correct things like acne, signs of aging, or uneven skin tone. You can order the superbottle along with a standard cleanser and daytime moisturizer, too, or just opt for the standalone night cream.

Clinique

What it’s for: Customized skincare

With the recent launch of iD, Clinique enters the custom skincare game with its own refined approach to the process. First, you pick your base—moisturizing lotion, oil-control gel, or hydrating jelly—then you select your “insert cartridge” from the list of five: fatigue, lines & wrinkles, pores & uneven texture, irritation, or uneven skin tone. Any of the 15 potential results costs comes in under $ 40.

Hawthorne

What it’s for: Customized fragrance and hygiene

Hawthorne works with some of the industry’s most sought-after perfumers to create a bunch of different fragrances to match each customer’s personality. You fill out their quiz that factors in things like diet and personal interests, and they set you up with two fragrances: one for “work” and one for “play”, both for a total $ 100. They complement each other nicely, but more importantly, they complement you. And just recently, Hawthorne expanded into scented deodorant, soap, and body wash, too, so you can smell and feel as fresh as each scent you’re “prescribed”—whether you’re wearing it or not.

Geologie

What it’s for: Customized skincare

Geologie’s diagnostic quiz is a little simpler than the competition, but that’s not to any detriment: They still address the core things like aging, inflammation, acne, and so forth, with dozens of possible outcomes for the five-product assortment they’ll send you. First they’ll start you on a 30-day trial with the entire set—cleansers for your sink and shower, moisturizers for day and night, and an eye cream. After you test them out, you can order a 90-day supply of whichever products you like best, or all of them if you so choose.

[From $ 30; geologie.com]

Prose

What it’s for: Hair care

Prose’s quiz asks you questions about your hair’s thickness, length, typical hair fall patterns, oil levels, as well as your diet, zip code (to determine pollution), and more. You tell Prose your goals, what kind of fragrance to plug into the formula, and then Prose generates a product to target your key concerns—with various levels of intensity (like if you’ve got severe dandruff but moderate oil production). They give you the option of a pre-shampoo hair mask, shampoo, and conditioner, all for $ 88, or you can pick and choose the ones you want to buy (for $ 38, $ 25, $ 25, respectively). There’s a hair oil launching in spring, as well, which can then be added to your order.

Proven

What it’s for: Customized skincare

Proven is the most complex of the customized skincare companies, since it uses a database called the Skin Genome Project to create its products: The SGP crawls 20,238 skincare ingredients, 100,000 products, 8 million testimonials, and over 4,000 scientific journal articles to identify the most effective and favorable results for Proven’s clients. When you complete their extensive skincare profile—which even factors in the water quality of your zip code—a dermo reviews the data and prescribes a 3-product set, including a customized cleanser, moisturizer, and night cream, all of which have ingredients tailored to your various needs. The 2-month supply runs $ 145, but the steeper cost is worth the upgrade if you want the most tailored fit of all.

The 12 Best Sweatpants You Can Buy Right Now

What are the best sweatpants for men? In high school, droopy basketball sweats may have gotten the job done. Today, athleisure is packed with far more functional, affordable, and stylish options for your legs.

Some of these souped-up sweatpants and joggers do the job of keeping you warm while you sweat. Others will just help you look good while you sit and watch TV or walk the dog. So, whether you’re in the market for function, fashion, or a little of both, we’ve got you covered.

Here are our picks for the best sweatpants and joggers for men.

1. Rhone Spar SeaCell Jogger

You want recovery? You got it. The Spar is made from a premium SeaCell fabric that boasts plenty of stretch, a moisture-wicking exterior, and zipper side and back pockets. 

[$ 82; rhone.com]

Rhone

2. Under Armour Sportstyle Joggers

Sweats aren’t just for the gym anymore, so you need a pair that will get you anywhere you need to go—and most anywhere else, too. These are sporty enough for whatever game you’re playing, smart enough for running errands, and cozy enough to hang around the house.

[$ 60, underarmour.com]

3. Reigning Champ Slim Sweatpant

Breathable cotton feels just right in spring and fall’s cooler temperatures. Despite the slim cut, these sweatpants help you maintain mobility thanks to the gusseted crotch. Smooth flatlock seams reduce chafing if you decide to run all day.

[$ 110, backcountry.com]

4. New Balance Gazelle Pant

Even if your workout is indoors this winter, you still have to go outside to get there. Suitable for all kinds of workouts (indoor and outdoor), these pants will also likely be your new go-to for braving the temps—even just during a commute. With tapered legs, they’re sleek but comfortable; and if you’re moving in the dark, reflective details ensure you’ll be easily spotted.

$ 70, newbalance.com

Here’s Why You Only Wear 13% of Your Clothes >>>

 


5. Arcteryx Palisade Pant

Pants perfectly crafted for the all-weather hiker. With TerraTex fabric, these bottoms sport UPF 50+ sun protection and they dry quickly. Pockets are carefully placed to allow a pack and best of all, the crotch area is gusseted—which means you’re free to move worry-free no matter how steep you’re climbing. 

[$ 159, backcountry.com]

 


6. Todd Snyder + Champion Terry Slim Jogger

For Todd Snyder, a perfectly fitted suit makes the man. But he knows that even the most stylish guy takes off the suit at some point. These sweats are a collab with Champion; we chose the Royal Plum because, um, purple—but there are a dozen colors to choose from.

[$ 140, toddsnyder.com]

7. Patagonia Mahnya Fleece Joggers

A lightweight organic cotton blend provides endless all-weekend comfort in classic jogger pants with a drawstring waist and banded cuffs for an ideal fit. Three colors are available.

[$ 79, backcountry.com]

Threads 4 Thought

8. adidas Motion Pants

Go from the gym to street with these sweet adidas three-stripers. The regular fit is eased, but not sloppy, and perfect for anything from hard work to easy livin’. 

$ 55, zappos.com

9. Puma Fleece Cargo Joggers

Didn’t you hear? Cargo pants are back. (Cargo joggers, anyway.) Maintain your stylish standards during down time with these fleece joggers. They come in four colors.

[$ 45; macys.com]

10. Belstaff Baytree Knit Joggers

Moto-inspired panels control the tapered fit of slim-cut joggers made from midweight cotton fleece, with a comfy striped rib waistband cinched by a drawstring.

[$ 195; nordstrom.com]


11. Brooks Spartan Pants

Power through inclement weather and keep on running. The semi-fitted cut follows the contours of the body, relaxed through the leg and slightly-tapered at ankles. DriLayer fabric offers moistures-wicking capabilities that keep you cool and comfortable all-day long.

[$ 75; zappos.com]

 

Zappos

12. Faherty Dual-Knit Joggers

Sometimes the difference between looking good and looking like you gave up can come down to the cut of your joggers. We’ll keep you sharp and comfortable in our new sustainable fabric that combines organic cotton with a recycled poly blend for the ultimate softness and warmth without the bulk.

In his Megan Thee Stallion assisted visuals to “Pole Dancer,” Wale hits up a strip club (duh) where the women make it rain more than the men and instead of twerking the talent simply bounce to the beat while shaking their hips. Maybe if some fool in their was causing some precipitation some twerking would’ve taken place. Just sayin.’

2 Chainz on the other hand links up with Ty Dolla $ ign and decides to get things popping in a salon bar for his visual to “Girl’s Best Friend.”

Check out the rest of today’s drops including work from Statik Selektah and Termanology, August Alsina, and more.

‘Springsteen on Broadway’ gives fans best seat in the house

Bruce Springsteen enjoys a unique bond with his fans, one only heightened by his autobiography and Broadway run. For those who couldn’t see the latter, “Springsteen on Broadway” endeavors to give them the best seat in the house, a mission that the Netflix special surely fulfills for anyone who has ever yelled “Bruuuuuce” during one of his concert marathons.

Frank and Oak’s New Deal Is the Best Way to Upgrade Your Winter Style—Without Leaving the House

Men’s Journal aims to feature only the best products and services. We update when possible, but deals expire and prices can change. If you buy something via one of our links, we may earn a commission.
Questions? Reach us at shop@mensjournal.com.

 

Guys tends to run through our wardrobe essentials pretty quickly. T-shirts get dingy, socks get holes—it can be hard to keep up. This is where box set delivery service can come in handy; not only can you upgrade your style, follow the trends, and splurge on lust-worthy things to hang in your closet, box sets make it really easy to replenish the stuff you stuff into our drawers.

We’ve tried more than a few of these boxed services the last few years and one we really appreciate is the Style Plan from Frank And Oak. Instead of the hassle of waiting for the items to arrive, then repackaging and sending back the ones you choose not to keep, Frank and Oak gives you veto power up front. Before the box is ever sent, you get an email that tells you precisely what’s coming. You get up to three items per month, so you either accept the stylist’s selections or swap out those choices for something you really want or need. It’s really handy and super simple—especially when it comes to replacing t-shirts, socks, and such.

Frank And Oak
Frank And Oak

Here’s the best part: Right now Frank And Oak is offering Men’s Journal readers $ 30 off your first box and $ 0 Styling Fee. Just follow this exclusive link to the website, select your personal preferences, save thirty bucks, then wait for the goods to be delivered. If you like what’s chosen for you, great. If you don’t, either veto it via the email or send it back after it arrives, postage paid. And the zero Styling Fee means it’s basically a free trial; normally it’s $ 25 if you decide to veto/return an entire month’s box—but not for you.

Try it, and if you like it you save $ 30. If you don’t like it? Hey, you’re the one with the coffee stain on your shirt.

The Best Grooming Products That Use the Calming Powers of Sage

New Agey types swear by the “cleansing” powers of sage, constantly burning dried bundles of the herb to clear negative energy from a room. We can’t vouch for the plant’s effect on auras, but there is good reason to add it to your grooming routine.

 

 

“For many people, sage connotes feelings of freshness,” says Michael Edwards, a Australia-based fragrance expert. “The earthy scent can remind you of a vibrant cleanliness, or it might evoke memories of hearty, comforting home cooking,” he adds.

Which means using products with the herb is a sneaky form of aromatherapy. And it’s more than a moment of Zen.


13 Grooming Essentials for Men

“Herbalists believe it has astringent qualities, to help calm and soothe skin,” Edwards says.

We’ve rounded up our favorite sage-enhanced essentials, which will have you looking and feeling your best—without having to set anything on fire.

The 10 Best Face Masks for Men, According to Dermatologists

No two face masks are alike. Some dry on your face and soak up all the grease and grime clogging your pores; others calm irritated skin; or deeply nourish cells for a brighter complexion. And they all have different applications, too: Some dry on and peel off, or go on invisibly until you rinse them off, and others come in sheets.

 

 

Would you know which one is best depending on the specific scenario, like for dry skin, ultra-nourishment, sunburnt skin, oily complexion, and so forth? We contacted our dermatologist friends for some answers. Below are their favorite kinds of masks (plus a couple of our own favorites, too) depending on some of the most common situations.

“One thing to remember is that whenever you’re using these products, follow the timing guidelines or err on the side of caution,” says dermatologist Papri Sarkar, M.D., of Brookline, MA.


The Best Face Masks for Men, According to Dermatologists

Never wear a mask for longer than the recommended allotment—whether it deep-cleans or deeply nourishes. With the cleansing ones in particular, pay attention to them as they dry: That’s when you need to remove them.

“Everyone has different levels of tolerance for ingredients and products, so start slow and work your way up,” she says.

Sheet Mask: Best for Moisture

“Sheet masks are a great way to impart moisture to dry, dull skin,” says Dr. Susan Bard of New York City. The mask creates an occlusive environment which allows for greater penetration of moisturizing ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid and ceramides, in a short period of time (15-30 min). It also allows for better penetration of other active ingredients that can help with anti-aging and soothing.”

Bard recommends: Charlotte Tilbury Instant Magic Facial Dry Sheet Mask. “It’s not as messy as most others, and doesn’t leave behind any residue.”

Aloe Masks: Best for Treating Sunburn or Irritation

“The anti-inflammatory properties in aloe help soothe and relieve burns,” says Bard. It’s just like applying aloe lotion to your sunburnt body, only this one is sensitive enough for your face and won’t clog your pores.

Bard recommends: Sephora’s Aloe Vera Face Mask.


Grooming Essentials, But Better: 22 Carefully Curated Products

Vitamin C Masks: Best for Sun Spots and Discoloration

A mask with Vitamin C will help even your skin tone, neutralizing discolorations from the sun, or the remnants of pesky acne blemishes.

Bard recommends: Dr. Jart+ Brightening Infusion Hydrogel Mask

Bio-engineered Masks: Best for Sensitive Skin

For her patients with sensitive skin, Lauren Meshkov Bonati, M.D., of Edwards, CO, recommends a high-grade mask specifically engineered to calm and soothe the skin—whether it’s naturally sensitive or just momentarily (following a laser treatment or even a shave). These are great because other masks can be overdrying, or just designed for oily skin.

Bonati recommends: SkinCeuticals Biocellulose Restorative Face Mask. “It’s especially great for reducing discomfort and heat experienced post-laser treatment, but can also be used to simply hydrate and protect delicate skin.”


The Best Body Scrubs to Exfoliate Your Skin Head to Toe

Clay Masks: Best for Oily Skin

Dhaval Bhanusali, M.D., of New York City favors clay masks (like kaolin), applied twice a week to control oil production and shine. You should still follow each application with a moisturizer, however, to reinvigorate and hydrate your skin.

Bhanusali recommends: Neutrogena’s Deep Clean Clay Mask

Salicylic Acid Masks: Best for Acne-prone Skin

For his patients who breakout easily, Bhanusali suggests masks with salicylic acid. (It’s not as caustic as it sounds—the opposite in fact.) Salicylic acid decreases oil production, since the ingredient can dissolve dead skin cells and further prevent clogged pores.

Dr. Bhanusali recommends: Yes To Tomatoes Clear Skin Acne Fighting Sheet Mask, because it has anti-inflammatory properties and ingredients, to counter any overdrying and redness (in the rare event it should occur).

Hyaluronic Acid Masks: Best for Dry Skin

Look for another acidic ingredient if it’s dry skin you’re treating. (Yes, you can still do a mask if you’re prone to dryness.) Dr. Amy Spizuoco of New York City says hyaluronic acid while be the most nourishing and moisturizing of your options.

We recommend: Dr. Dennis Gross Hyaluronic Marine Hydrating Modeling Mask, which will turn your skin from dull and dry to firm and bright.


The Best Skincare Regimen to Prevent Acne, According to Dermatologists

Hybrid Masks: Best for a Faster Regimen

Cleanse, moisturize, exfoliate… What’s the order of operation for a full skincare regimen? Alexander Dane, M.D., of Morristown, NJ, thinks it’s best to find a mask that does all three, and to cycle it into rotation once a week after cleansing.

Dane recommends: Avène Cleanance Mask: “It’s a clay mask that turns into a scrub and contains glycolic and salicylic acid as well as biodegradable beads that help exfoliate the skin,” Dane says. “It also contains zinc gluconate that soothes irritation and redness, improving your complexion.”

Clarifying masks: Best for Optimizing Your Skincare Regimen

Onyeka Obioha, M.D., of Beverly Hills, CA, tells her patients to invest in a skin-clarifying mask—that is, one that focuses on “clearing the canvas” so you can start with a healthy, fresh slate for other products to work more effectively. This straightforward kind of mask should deep-clean the pores, balance oil production, and leave your skin feeling smooth and hydrated. “I love (clarifying masks) with anti-inflammatory properties, such as turmeric,” she says.

Obioha recommends: Kiehl’s turmeric and cranberry seed mask.

2-in-1 Masks: Best for Same-Day Events

In general, if you have an event and need to look like your most handsome and alert self, then try a back-to-back application of two types of masks (one to soak up impurities and the other to deeply hydrate and restore your skin). For the latter, Dr. Sarkar likes to find hydrating masks with serum, since it can deeply penetrate the skin and thus brighten and even out your complexion. You’ll be camera- or date-ready on the spot.

We recommend: I love the one-two punch of the grease-absorbing gold peel-off mask from Golden Door followed by the ultra-hydrating serum gel “Bro Mask” from Jaxon Lane.

The Best Fall Colognes and Scents You’ll Want to Wear All Year Long

As the weather gets cooler, the scents get warmer. That’s the tradition, anyway: Fall fragrances are known for woody, spicy, or amber notes. Whereas warm weather scents have a fresh, floral lift, fall ones lean more heavily into the cold category, preparing us for the deep and musky tones of winter. The best thing about these transitional colognes and fragrances for fall is that many can work all year long.

If you’re in the market for a seasonal fragrance with subtle warm notes, or if you’re hunting for a year-round scent, consider these options. Some are brand new, some recently revived, and some are longstanding consumer favorites. All of them, however, are the best colognes you can sport this season.


4 Can’t-Live-Without Grooming Products You Should Add to Your Routine

 

Arquiste Parfumeur Sydney Rock Pool

Arquiste first released this as a limited edition, but its popularity demanded a fulltime feature. All of the brand’s fragrances summon a setting of the senses. This is one of Arquiste’s most modern takes: 2016, Sydney, golden hour in the sandstone surf. The result is something warm, but expansive—almost like a blissful summer. Best of all, that means you don’t need to put it aside until next fall and winter, either: With Sydney Rock Pool, there’s year-round warmth in orbit.

Blueprint 203

Chances are you already know about Dollar Shave Club’s shaving products. Now the company wants to help you smell really damn good. With its bottle of Blueprint, the brand is venturing into colognes, with two different sets: The 100 “Fresh” trio, and the 200 “Warm” trio. We like Blueprint Warm 203, with its blend of golden musk, vetiver, and sandalwood. It’s a little fresh, like the rest of the white-label collection, but this blue bottle creates a darker, more masculine effect despite its clean first impression. 

[$ 50; dollarshaveclub.com]

Le Labo Thé Noir 29 Solid

All of Le Labo’s scents are solid in that they’re really good. But some of them are also literally solid, as is the case with this Thé Noir capsule. Thé Noir starts with lighter notes like bergamot and fig, it graduates into a base of arguably the best-smelling things in the world (cedar wood, musk, and vetiver) to create a perfect fall balance. Best of all, it’s TSA-friendly, easy to tote in your dopp kit or work bag, and just as easy to apply (rub a sliver of it on your pulse points, or even on your mustache). 

[$ 94; lelabofragrances.com]

Fulton & Roark Ltd. Reserve #6 Perpetua

Speaking of solids, the same goes for Fulton & Roark’s excellent assortment of pocket-size, travel-friendly tins. The newest limited edition run has landed in time for fall: Go for Perpetua and you’ll smell like a mix of cedarwood and mahogany, balanced with bergamot, jasmine, and other notes. Amber seals the deal, preserving Perpetua as a cold-weather classic—one you have to get this year, before the limited supply runs out.

[$ 60; fultonandroark.com]

Azzaro Chrome

So you want the crispness of bergamot and the sharpness of musk? Consider Azzaro Chrome. The bright blue bottle evokes summer days—a warmth you’ll appreciate as you navigate the plunging temperatures this fall and winter. 

[$ 87 for a 3.4oz bottle; azzaro.com]

Dior Sauvage Eau de Parfum

While Sauvage Eau de Parfum opens with bergamot and fresh lavender, it’s rounded out with Sichuan pepper, star anise, nutmeg, and vanilla. When discussing the balance of these tones, experts reference the warm notes getting depth by the addition of fresher, cleaner ingredients. In the case of Sauvage EdC, it’s truly the most balanced of the lot and great for every season, but these spicy notes make autumn its sweet spot.

Calvin Klein Eternity for Men

Nobody does mass appeal like CK, and the brand’s Eternity for Men continues to be a bestseller year round. Now’s the best time to wear it, too: It envelops you with herbal, floral, and citrus top notes, but persists with much deeper tones of rosewood, sandalwood, vetiver, and amber. You might just want to wear it for eternity.

[$ 64; calvinklein.com]

DedCool Series 2 Red (Dakota)

The latest launch from SoCal scentmaker DedCool, Series 2 is a lineup of scents that can weather any season. The best for fall is Red (Dakota), with a woody and amber heart bookended by fresh gardenias, crisp clementines, and sweet wild berries. As a born-and-raised Dakotan, I can tell you that this one deserves its name: It’s as warm and hospitable as the autumnal prairie. 

[$ 130; dedcool.com]

Coach Platinum

A premium blend of ingredients makes Platinum a real original: It mixes tonka beans, cashmeran, juniper berries, sage, geranium, pineapple, leather, black pepper, sandalwood, and patchouli. It’s a perfect nighttime scent for a dinner date or black-tie affair. 

[$ 92; coach.com]

VIRTU Vince Camuto

VIRTU debuted this fall with warm notes to commemorate the season: crushed peppercorn, Haitian vetiver, fresh tree moss, Tuscan leather, cedar, and Indian sandalwood. The blend has a crisp complexity to it, though. It’s curiously cool despite its fuller recipe, with fresh notes of Turkish cardamom and papyrus rounding out the top layer. And the leather-wrapped bottle is as much a part of the sensory experience as the liquid inside.

[$ 80; vincecamuto.com]

Hugo Boss BOSS The Scent

BOSS isn’t shy about this bottle. It’s seductive and sensual, so dab some on before your next date for an enticing scent. You’ll get spicy ginger deepened with the addition of exotic maninka fruit and finished with leather base notes—a recipe for a great night.

[$ 87; hugoboss.com]

Louis Vuitton L’Immensité

One of five men’s scents launched by Louis Vuitton this year, L’Immendisté isn’t exactly a fall fragrance, but it’s included here to buck tradition. While most seasonal scents evoke a specific mood, L’Immensité was designed to be a limitless scent, one that you can’t attach to any specific occasion. Its fresh blend of ginger and amber finished with grapefruit works in any situation—your girlfriend might even steal this one for herself, too.

CoSTUME NATIONAL Scent Intense

Scent Intense will forever be one of my fall favorites. Anchored by amber, CoSTUME NATIONAL’s best blend combines the broody ingredient with hibiscus, jasmine, and wood notes for a head-turning finish. It’s the kind of fragrance that makes guys stock up on just one bottle and wear it as a signature scent.

[$ 125 for 50ml bottle; us.costumenationalscents.com]

Ralph Lauren Polo Supreme Oud

Supreme Oud is supreme in its warming powers: With notes of smoky Indian oud wood, vetiver, cinnamon, and pink pepper, it’s the scent equivalent of sitting around a crackling fire in late autumn, spiked ciders in hand. With its gilded detailing, it belongs on your top shelf—though you should keep it easily accessible since it’s your new secret style weapon.

[$ 125 for 4.2oz bottle; sephora.com]

Montblanc Legend

As good in the spring as it is during fall, this transitional scent balances the fruity, the crisp, and the floral (ingredients like lavender, pineapple, red apple, bergamot, and geranium) with heartier, standout ones like tonka beans, sandalwood, and oak moss. If you’re one to have a different scent with each season, you could save some money and rely on the strength and popularity of Legend on either end of summer and winter.
