Take Care, Men

Malaysia Tatler - - LIFE -

Saman­tha Lim Kath­lyn D’souza

Novem­ber is a month busy with move­ments, such as NoShave Novem­ber and Movem­ber. Here at Malaysia Tatler, we pitched a dif­fer­ent take on th­ese cam­paigns by speak­ing to four men—urol­o­gist Dr Ge­orge Lee, Ben­e­fit Cos­met­ics gen­eral man­ager Matthew Lim, CEO of Livescape Group Iqbal Ameer and founder of Riuh! Af­fendy Ali—all with dif­fer­ent stages of fa­cial hair growth (since we asked to them to leave it alone for a bit be­fore we met at JW Mar­riott’s Tru­e­fitt & Hill), as we spoke to them about health is­sues, specif­i­cally men’s health. Men aren’t typ­i­cally por­trayed as the type to ‘pam­per’ them­selves, or put a lot of em­pha­sis on their looks. They are known in the pe­riph­ery as the type to main­tain a lais­sez-faire at­ti­tude when it comes to not only looks, but also their health. So here, we aim to chal­lenge that no­tion by bring­ing to­gether th­ese gen­tle­men, to have a chat about gen­eral ap­pear­ances, groom­ing and their idea of hav­ing ‘me’ time (al­though op­tions are in­deed lim­ited). As we spoke to them about how they feel on the out­side, the con­ver­sa­tion steered to­wards the most im­por­tant of con­ver­sa­tions to be had—how they feel on the in­side, what mea­sures they take to be healthy, plus their tips and ad­vice for other men out there. Let it be known to oth­ers that men’s health shouldn’t be only be high­lighted dur­ing a spe­cific time of the year, but al­ways, as th­ese men have stated.
