It seems this dismissal of male beauty issues has become so ingrained in society that we're no longer equipped to notice when a man might have a problem. Who, after all, is going to question a fervid gym junkie when there are women willingly starving themselves in their own homes?

We all have that little voice in our heads. Whether you are young or old, male or female, recent graduate or CEO. It's there.
