Looking to shave a little cash from your grooming routine? Then take your blade and slide it across this canny little device. Doing just that made my supped up 4 blade razor last from May 2012 clear through January. That’s 8 months without dropping so much as a penny on a razor blade. And really, it was still going strong by February—not so much a nip, burn or random bump—I just kinda wanted a new blade by that point.

The makers of the product found that razor blades lose their sharpness so quickly mostly because of microscopic gunk that builds up after just a few shaves. It’s Bacteria that water and soap can’t rinse off but that does get cleansed by gliding your blade along a strip of thermo-plastic elastomer. Sounds random, but the company’s founders went through a lot of trial and error (mostly error) before then came up with this one. And now, that’s pretty much all the RazorPit is. It’s about the size of an iPhone and comes with a stand replete with a spot to store your blade. The science behind it has to do with friction, though really after the season has changed and you’re still on the same blade, you’ll be thinking it’s some sort of miracle.

The RazorPit is $35 at groominglounge.com

Myth or fact: Can tea bags really help with puffy eyes?

If you're searching for how to get rid of puffy eyes, you may receive many recommendations from Google, social media, and real-life pals. While you may think all solutions for this sight for sore eyes will lead you to the skincare aisle of your local drugstore, you may be surprised at the number of suggestions that may have you hurrying to the grocery store instead. One such oft-recommended pantry staple? Tea bags.

Putting food on your face may be a tad cringe-worthy at first blush. After all, someone invented the napkin to prevent long-lasting milk mustaches. However, DIY skincare masks and spas have long used foods like avocado and berries. What's the deal with tea bags? If you use tea bags to try to nix puffy under-eyes, how should you proceed (safely)? A dermatologist spilled the tea.

When the warm weather arrives, it can bring sweltering temperatures, and with it comes murky pits, odorous feet — or, worst of all, swamp crotch. Even if it's the middle of the winter, those can be issues for men who workout on a consistent basis or simply sweat more than the average guy. The bacteria and fungus that accumulate in your sweat-ridden crevices can yield an unpleasant odor that leaves you feeling unclean and even more so, uncomfortable. Of course, you can wick a bar of deodorant under your arms and be good to go, but what can you do about the other sweaty (and more delicate) parts of your body?

Enter body powder, also known as talcum powder (although several formulas on the market now are talc-free). Body powder absorbs moisture, reduces odor, and eliminates chafing so you never have to worry about the pains of upper leg chafing.

Hair loss treatment: Best options for men with thinning hair
If you suffer from thinning hair, consider one of these treatment options
Man looking at hair loss

One of a man's main source of confidence is having luscious locks, but that confidence gradually decreases when their hair starts thinning or their hairline begins receding. According to the American Hair Loss Association, almost two-thirds of American men will see "appreciable" hair loss by the age of 35.

Some men simply accept their fates and start experimenting with gravity-defying styling techniques, or as is more common lately, shave their heads and embrace the bald look. Others take more aggressive measures, seeking out weaves, plugs, or (just say no) toupees. And some search for the best hair loss treatment for men and run into pseudoscience, potentially false hope, and diet advice (which can be good). It's frustrating. Unsurprisingly, numerous studies have linked hair loss to lowered self-esteem and lowered quality of life for men.
