I believe in taking care of myself, with a balanced diet and a rigiorus excercise routine. In the morning if my face is a little puffy, I’ll put on an ice pack while doing my stomach crunches. I can do a thousand now. After I remove the ice pack, I use a deep pore cleanser lotion. In the shower, I use a water activated gel-cleanser. Then a honey-almond body scrub, and on the face, an exfoliating gel-scrub.
Just kidding, I’m not Patrick Bateman. I subscribe to the less-is-more school of grooming. I get my hair cut by a nearly 75 year-old barber at Astor Place for $14. It is perfect for me because I like my haircut to be 1950s style, and well, he was actually cutting hair in the 50s, so it works out. The focus of my grooming efforts is mostly centered on the painful practice of shaving. I hate it. One product that has significantly helped ease the brutality of the daily shave is GEO F Trumper’s shaving cream. This little dose of goodness was graciously given to me as a gift from the worldly Hollister H. Hovey. “It’s the good stuff. What they use at Freeman’s.” said Ms. Hovey as she presented me the Trumper’s. Thereby changing my life for the better.
