According to Priceline Pharmacy, more Aussie men are purchasing skincare and makeup products to enhance their own personal grooming.

Many times, men suffer from the same skin problems as females including blemishes, age spots, and dark circles.

A healthy skin regime knows no gender, so more men are taking a little more time to take care of their own skin.
