Lab Series Skin Care for Men
Guys may not be as obsessed about their skin health as women, but many do dig clean shaves and smooth skin. Lab Series has formulated a Clean-Shave-Treat skin care system that includes educational tools that help men solve skin care problems, from acne to aging. Our favorite pick: New Maximum Comfort Shave Cream Advanced Formula.
Orabrush Tongue Cleaner
Halitosis is no laughing matter when you're mouth to mouth, which is why we suggest the Orabrush, an invaluable dental tool that has ultra-soft, pointed bristles that reach deep into the uneven crevices of the tongue and loosen stinky bacteria that cause -- ugh -- bad breath.
GNC Longevity Factors Supplements
Though men may get "more distinguished" as they age, they can still maintain their vigor while boosting their health in the process. GNC's Longevity Factors line includes supplements specifically formulated for eye health, heart health, energy enhancement, brain health and anti-aging, as well as a nutritional shake for strength and agility.
Nutrition Tips app
Does your guy develop selective hearing when you start offering nutritional advice that would improve his diet? Tell him you'll stop being his personal dietitian if he'll install the free Nutrition Tips app from Michael Quach. Jam-packed with daily diet tidbits that are easy to follow and will help get your mate more health- and nutrition-savvy.
High Plains Bison
If your guy wants to "beef" up, have him substitute grass-fed bison for his favorite meat dishes, such as burgers, steaks and meatloaf. Lower in calories, fat and cholesterol and packed with quality protein, bison is the healthier choice when it comes to making simple dietary changes that can improve his health.
Brain health doesn't get the fanfare that six-pack abs and bulging biceps do, but it's an essential component of overall health and wellness. Despite the humorous name, Bucky Balls are actually a must-have desk toy that will not only give your guy a creative outlet for relieving daily stress but will also challenge his noggin to form Bucky Balls into any number of shapes and sizes. Not to mention: Bucky Balls are just plain fun.
