While you may never look like Ben Affleck, at least exude the same level of confidence by being well-groomed

There’s a reason why gender stereotypes were created. And as much as it sounds discriminating, the stereotype of men tending to neglect themselves is, to my knowledge, really true. Men need a whole lot of grooming, especially in this rainy and cold weather.
