Among stress, erratic lifestyle, ageing, pollution and general unconcern towards grooming, lies a very handsome #man that wants to show himself to the world! Sure, there’s no denying that all the aforementioned factors do ensure that looking your best doesn’t come easy. It’s, however, no rocket science!

Personal hygiene, #skin care, and hair care are some extremely important things which need attention. Grooming, if done properly, can make a lot of difference to a man’s appearance. So keeping this in mind, we bring you the best grooming techniques to use on a daily basis and look really good.

1. Just wash your face twice with a light face wash that either contains salicylic acid or tea-tree oil.

Just wash your face twice with a light face wash that either contains salicylic acid or tea-tree oil

I’ve often heard my male friends go ‘sher kabhi mooh nahi dhote’. And each time someone says that, I feel like smacking their head. Real men not only wash their face with a gentle cleanser, but they also moisturize before going to bed. For face cleansers—use a light one which is fragrance and alcohol-free. For moisturizers—use a night recovery lotion that hydrates your skin overnight and make your skin a little better every day.

2. Wash your hair regularly

Wash your hair regularly

If you’re under the opinion that washing your #hair daily or every alternate day will rob your hair off essential oils then you’re probably living under the rock. This problem of regular hair care is archaic, and product advancement has made sure you get done away with it. With dirt, grime, pollution and styling cream threatening to damage your mane, you must look at buying a strengthening protein shampoo, gentle hair oil and leave-in conditioners, and use them regularly, not necessarily in the same order. Also, cold showers are meant to reduce dandruff. So, if you are facing the problem, you know what to do!

3. A little eyebrow grooming can do wonders

A little eyebrow grooming can do wonders

The thing with eyebrows is that there should always be two. No, you don’t have to go to a salon for a wax/threading appointment but you can’t be serious with flaunting that unibrow and not do anything about it. So, if you have a unibrow, or crazy bushy ones, either ask your girlfriend for tweezers and help yourself or go to a salon.

4. Less is always more, when it comes to spraying cologne before heading out for the day

Less is always more, when it comes to spraying cologne before heading out for the day

Men generally have the tendency to go all out with the amount that is applied or sprayed. Fragrances are meant to enhance your natural scent and only to be smelled by people who you’re literally holding close. Your co-workers shouldn’t be able to smell your fragrance even before they see you, so go subtle!

5. Don’t Avoid your skanky feet

Don’t Avoid your skanky feet

The part of your body you see the least is often the one that’s most neglected. Feet are normally gross and yours is no exception. Just clean between your toes daily, powder them with your regular body talc, and make sure they’re completely dry before you put on clean socks. And because dry/hard skin and nasty calluses are such common feet problems, there’s no harm or even shame in going for frequent pedicures.

6. Beards need the same kind of care that you’d extend to your hair on the head

Beards need the same kind of care that you’d extend to your hair on the head

And before you argue that beards are meant to be rugged, let us remind you that there is a right side of ruggedness that you must fall under and that comes with the regular usage of beard shampoo, conditioner and moisturizer/oil. Lest you want your beard to look greasy, messy and rather unsightly!

7. Neck beard? Are you a mountain man?

Are you a mountain man

It’s actually sad that we need to give you reasons to convince you to shave off that hideous neck beard, if at all. Basically the hair that grows on the neck looks grossly unappealing—scraggly and pubes-like, so you would definitely want to get rid of that. Also, don’t forget the back of your neck.

8. If you can’t grow a beard, DON’T grow a beard

Dont grow a beard

Honestly, patchy facial hair has not done any man any good! In fact, it’ll only take you back to those awkward seventh grade days when you were dying to use the razor! Stop experimenting with your facial hair and stick to the clean shaven look.

 

9. There’s no shame in getting manicures and pedicures

There’s no shame in getting manicures and pedicures

But if nothing in this world can convince you to lose your salon virginity, then we have to ask you to always keep a nail clipper and file handy. And not just keep them handy but also use them. And while you’re at it, moisturize your hands too. Because there can be nothing worse than unleashing your unkempt hands to the world.

10. Your skin is being ruined because of excessive drinking, so CUT down on it

Your skin is being ruined because of excessive drinking,

Alcohol contains a lot of sugar, which in turn contributes to damaging your skin just like sunlight and smoking, so we suggest taking it a bit easy!

11. Lack of sleep? Eyes puffed? Keeping chilled spoons on them would considerably de-puff them

Lack of sleep

Do you get puffy eyes when you are sleep-deprived? Just put two spoons in the freezer when you wake up and put them on the puffed up eyelids. The chilled steel will help you look fresh as ever.

12. Get a decent hairdresser and hold on to him for life

Get a decent hairdresser

Changing too many hairdressers is doing no good to you and your hair. Firstly, choose a good hairstylist and get to know him. You have to be yourself with the stylist and not be awkward in telling him what you like and what you don’t.

13. Getting a timely haircut is very necessary for good looks

Getting a timely haircut is very necessary for good looks

Getting a haircut every 2 to 3 weeks is a decent time in normal cases. If you have slow growth, then 3-4 weeks is a good time.If you are planning to keep long hair? Your hair needs to be trimmed frequently. Longer hair needs more maintenance than short hair for obvious reasons. Get frequent trims every now and then when you feel that the hair is getting messy.
