Men must also follow a grooming schedule to stay hygienic and look at their best! We’ve come up with top 10 simple grooming tips that every man should know.
Before you read on, we suggest you schedule 1-2 things to do each day without spending an hour in the bathroom!
1. Maintain Your Hair
Mostly men visit the barber only when hair grows substantially long and looks ugly. Instead, one must visit the barer every month. It’s not about cutting your hair short. It is about keeping a clean and standard look.
Another great hair care tip is to shampoo every second or third day. Too much shampoo breaks the hair. It also takes away the natural sebum or essential oils.
To keep your hair healthy, apply a combination of almond and castor oil at night.
2. Show Some Love to Your Nails
Majority of the men neglect their nails. Extra growths, uneven shapes and accumulated dirt are just ugly.
Invest in a good nail cutter and make it a habit to cut your nails every two weeks. Cutting must follow slight trims for smoothing out uneven ends.
For dirt and cuticle removal, we also recommend getting a manicure & pedicure at least once a month.
3. Shape Those Brows
Not everyone struggles with huge brows. Even worse are the brows with disorderly growth. Scissors are no good to manage those few annoying hair. They are risky and can be very dangerous too.
Unless you ace at the classic comb-scissors way to trim the brows, we recommend buying a good brows trimmer. It saves time and gives you a uniform look.
4. Smiles Win Hearts
Generally, all of us are victims of today’s lusting junk food. This food does more harm to our health including our teeth.
Discoloration is unattractive and brands you unhygienic to anyone you meet. It also means you have poor dental health.
Brushing after every meal is essential to remove dirt and cavity formation. A salt gargle also does wonders for your teeth and bad odor.
Men must also regularly change their toothbrush. We recommend replacing a toothbrush every 2-3 months.
Finally, make a visit to the dentist every 6 months. A regular checkup and an annual cleanup is the best way to maintain your teeth.
5. Carry an Epic Beard
Beards are in fashion and they look sexy. Beards also require a lot of attention and care.
Every beard deserves a good beard oil. Don’t get cheap on this one! A good oil prevents itchiness, dryness and even dandruff. It also moisturizes the skin and helps with the shape and shine.
A healthy beard must also be trimmed regularly. Uneven hair growth and patchiness is unattractive at all levels. Get a good beard trimmer that is easy to hold and comes with different speed and depth options. Waterproofing and portability are also key factors
6. Skin Loves a Facial
Proper skin care is one of the highly recommended grooming tips for every man. Facial skin is battered each day with pollution and dust. Rinsing doesn’t provide the required cleaning, resulting in pimples and blackheads.
There are two ways to care for your facial skin. First, a visit to the men’s salon every month to get a regular clean-up facial or rejuvenating facial.
Second is to make your own masks at home using natural ingredients. The choice depends upon the level of care required on your skin.
It also depends upon your skin type. If you are unsure, just consult your barber.
Benefits of facials include anti-ageing effects, skin moisturizing, and rejuvenation. Facials are also good for removal of acne marks, blackheads, whiteheads and to lower stress levels.
7. Wax Away Unwanted Hair
Some men carry unwanted genetic hair that makes them less appealing to the opposite sex. For instance, most women find back hair disgusting. Long underarm hair are also unattractive and unhygienic. Excess hair is nuisance and waxing is the best way to get rid of them.
We do not recommend shaving as it is time-consuming and worsens your skin with dryness, eczema and cuts.
8. Dark Circles are Turn-offs
Dark circles are ugly-looking and ruin your overall appeal.
Make a priority to keep your work-life in balance. Maintain 8 hours of sleep and follow a decent sleep schedule, even on weekends.
Cucumber compress, tea bag compress, eating more omega-3 foods, meditation and reducing alcohol consumption are some effective home remedies to try.
9. Popping Nose & Ear Hair is Gross
Nose hair acts as a natural filter but excess growth is annoying. On the other end, ear hair is pure genetic and unsightly.
Trim these areas once a week. German-made stainless steel nose scissors are best if you are old school. Do not try scissors on your ears!
Otherwise, make sure you always buy a trimmer with specific nose and ear trim attachments.
10. Cologne is Cool
Last in our grooming tips for every man list includes wearing a cologne. Odor is unbearable and a good eau de cologne is your best mate. It lasts longer than perfume and smells fresh.
If you reside in a place with a tropical or hot climate, buy cologne with higher oil percentage for a stronger fragrance.
