Morgan Spurlock looks at the pressure for men to look good in new documentary 'Mansome'

Chest hair trimming, beard shaping, waxing your back - it all falls under the category of 'manscaping.'

The market research firm NPD Group, which looks at buying trends, says one in four men now use some sort of facial-skin care product like face wash or moisturizer. Last year, department stores sold $84.7 million worth of male skincare products. That's up 13% from the year before. All this spending is in an effort from men...to look good.

It's all detailed in the new documentary "Mansome" by director Morgan Spurlock. He explains why he chose to explore men's grooming habits.

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!
