Grooming Guide for Tough Guys


What do men know about grooming and skin care?  The “tough” ones, the “real men” don’t know anything about it (to be read with heavy sarcasm). Manmade: The Essential Skincare & Grooming Reference for Every Man is written to change that.  This is a grooming book written for the “real man”, the tough guy.

This book is written to read, but created to be put on display.  The cover is made of a soft, smooth material with text that pops-out and begs for you to pick this volume up. The interior design continues in the artistic manner that you would have judged it to have from the cover. Each page is full color, heavy, glossy stock.  Sections of text are broken up and complimented by beautiful graphics and full page art.

In this work of art disguised as a book, Chris Salgardo, style guru and President of Kiehl’s, “shares the skincare wisdom and grooming expertise he’s earned through years of helping guys become their best selves.” The book is written in 3 sections:

  1.  Back to Basics
  2. Real Men in Their Real Words
  3. For Your Quick Reference

Section I provides a grooming primer, essential tools every man must have, and key answers and tips for common questions and problems.  Section II addresses the practical matters of how to be a gentleman, instilling confidence, tattoo care and maintenance, travel grooming essentials, and grooming of the mind and soul.  Section III ties the book together and serves as a quick reference guide for any skin and grooming needs encountered.

Manmade is the essential tough guide to grooming for “real” men.
