Men are finally starting to identify some key grooming hacks that create the universally attractive aura we all want. This is great news because it’s now possible to look (and feel) your best on command – not just when you have a good hair day.

Whether you suffer from hair loss, acne, or bad breath, there’s an effective, affordable solution. But arming yourself with the right products and knowing how to use them is still tough. There are a ton of products to choose from (including many bad ones), so we’re here to help

We’ve rounded up some of the most common, annoying problems that dudes suffer from, and the products that solve them. Check them out below.

1. Dandruff

Dandruff can be tricky to deal with, but those white flakes have to be taken care of. The best route, as you probably already know, is a great dandruff shampoo. We suggest this highly-rated option from Nizoral because it actually eliminates dandruff without harming your hair. Plus, it doubles as a cure for hair-loss thanks to DHT hormone blockers (check out more DHT-blocking hair loss shampoos here).

2. Prevent Ingrown Hair/ Razor Bumps

Ingrown hairs and razor bumps can be painful and unsightly, but they’re easy to deal with. This bottle of Tend Skin aftershave calms and moisturizes skin after a shave, and also provides a subtle scent to leave you feeling ready for the day.

3. Patchy Beards

Great beards are truly great, but patchy beards are never a good look. Luckily, dermatologists have finally found an effective solution: microdermabrasion. The method uses tiny needles to (painlessly) poke your face, increasing blood flow and stimulate your facial skin. This causes more hair growth while also reducing signs of aging and fighting acne.

4. Nose/Ear Hair

Yes, people do notice overgrown nose and ear hair. Make sure they don’t notice it on you with this nose and ear hair trimmer from ToiletTree. It comes very highly-rated with over 7,800 reviews because it has a heavy-duty build, a handy LED light, and a smart design that blows the competition out of the water.

5. Back Hair Removal

If you can’t seem to keep your back hair in check, we suggest investing $20 in this BAKblade. It’s a simple, easy-to-use tool for getting a close shave on your back and shoulders, and features disposable cartridges for continued use.

6. Excess Body Hair

For body hair anywhere else, pick up one of these multi-groomers from Philips Norelco. It comes with 23 different heads that allow you to trim your beard, nether regions, nose, sideburns, and anywhere else that needs a touch-up.

7. Blackheads & Pimples

If you have acne, then you know how many “cures” are out there – and you know how many are completely useless. We’re big fans of this Differin Adapalene Gel because it has Rx-strength retinoid, which directly combats acne by regulating skin cell turnover and reducing deep inflammation.

8. Stained Teeth

Years of coffee, fruit, sugar, and cigarettes take a visible toll on teeth. The good news? It’s fixable. This Active Wow teeth whitening charcoal has almost 19,000 reviews and 4 stars on Amazon because it really works to remove stains, and give you a bright white smile.

9. Unruly Eyebrows

Eyebrow maintenance isn’t just for women. Dudes need to make sure their ‘brows are in check too, and this complete eyebrow kit from Senxiller is the best way to do just that.

10. Bad Breath

If you’re brushing daily and chewing gum but still suffering from bad breath, try this oral rinse from TheraBreath. It directly attacks the sulfur-producing bacteria that create stubborn bad breath, and only costs $14.
