Ocean Kelp Four Elements of the Perfect Shave Set comes awfully close to perfection. Includes badger brush, shaving cream, pre-shave gel, and after-shave lotion. $100, from The Art of Shaving, Somerset Collection South, Troy; 248-649-5872, theartofshaving.com.

 

The Seven-Piece Manicure Set is a hands-down winner. Matte-finish stainless-steel items include fingernail clipper, toenail clipper, cuticle nipper, nail file, tweezers, nose-hair scissors, and beard/mustache scissors. $160, from The Art of Shaving, Somerset Collection South, Troy; 248-649-5872, theartofshaving.com.

 

Just because it’s summer doesn’t mean you should neglect your hands. Melvita’s Apicosma Extra-rich Hand Cream is among the best we’ve tried. A blend of three honeys, royal jelly, and shea and cocoa butters gives relief to dry mitts. $24; melvita.com.

 

A man isn’t fully dressed without a subtle spritz of fragrance. Eau de Lacoste Rouge is a fresh, spicy mix of Madagascan black pepper, Indian ginger, and Guatemalan cardamom, $62/3.3 ounces. At department stores.

 

When traveling, remember to keep up appearances. This TSA-approved Travel Set from J. Paul includes pre-shave Scrub, Glide shave cream, Ice after-shave, and moisturizing Guard with SPF 20 sunscreen, $36; jpaulonline.com.

 

Men often ignore the area around the eyes, but this tender skin needs daily attention. Massage a little Margot A&K Eye Cream under each peeper for all-day hydration, $29.50, Margot’s European Day Spa, Birmingham; 248-642-3770, margots.com.

 

 

Summer sun and wind can be harsh on lips, but Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balms (in five “flavors”) penetrate quickly and offer UV protection with SPF 25. $7.50 each, Saks Fifth Avenue, Troy; 248-643-9000, and Neiman Marcus, Troy; 248-643-3300. Also Nordstrom and Sephora; getjackblack.com.

 

John Allan’s is one of the most effective men’s grooming lines, including Blu Pomade to shape unruly locks, $22, and Scrub, to exfoliate and clean the face, $17, at ZMC Pharmacy, Royal Oak; 248-280-6401, and Salon 76, Grosse Pointe Farms; 313-886-7676, or johnallans.com.
