For most men, skin care isn’t a high priority. A splash of cold water on the face and you’re good to go for the day. However, the skin is the largest and most noticeable organ of the body.

The Egyptians made razors out of gold in about 4000 BC. It wasn’t until 1740 that the first razor … Read More »
