A new survey has revealed record numbers of British men are embracing selfie culture - experimenting with grooming trends and even the odd bit of cosmetic surgery to boost their confidence and help them feel like their best selves online.
Exploring the rise of extreme male grooming in the UK, buyagift.com commissioned a YouGov survey of 1,000 British men.
We asked men to tell us what they did to take care of themselves on a day to day basis, why they thought it was important to look good and whether they’d ever consider going under the knife.
