Exercise Addiction in Men

Do you insist on rising at five to run each morning, even when your back is aching, black ice coats the streets, and your wife beseeches you to stay in bed? Do you only feel good when you’re training for triathlons? Is eating merely a way to replenish for the next race? Then you, my Spandex-clad friend, may have an exercise addiction.

The rounded edge of this nail clipper mimics the natural shape of your nail to avoid a pointy-edged look.

2. REN Guerande Salt Exfoliating Body Balm, $37 

Don't be thrown off by the minty scent; this unisex scrub gently exfoliates all your rough parts from head to toe.

3. Sure for Men, $2.99

This Sure deodorant does what you want an antiperspirant/deodorant to do -- stops wetness and bans odor -- with minimal fuss.

4. La Roche-Posay Anthelios SX Daily Moisturizing Cream with Sunscreen, $29.95

This lotion boasts SPF 15, is unscented, leaves no white residue, and lasts all day.

5. Aveeno Therapeutic Shave Gel, $4.50

"This is the only one I recommend, ever," Colbert says. Oatmeal helps reduce the inflammation caused by dragging a blade across skin.

6. Gillette Sensor 3 Disposable Razors, $12.99

Three spring-mounted blades lop off the toughest stubble without nicks, and the razor has a moisturizing strip for a more comfy shave.

7. Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser, $7.99

This basic cleanser is inexpensive, fragrance-free, and won't dry your skin.
