These days many people often pay more attention to curating their wardrobe. But, actually, it’s not the only thing you need to pay attention to, especially if you’re a man.
Apparently, your grooming is important too. No matter how expensive your clothing is, your grooming can still greatly affect how others see you.
This, of course, is for your health too. It promotes healthier skin and boosts your confidence, which can affect how you socialize with other people as well.
But grooming is more than just taking a bath. Apparently, there’s more to it than what you might think of. Here are some tips to ensure you’re always looking your best.
Get a Good Haircut
Your hairstyle can affect not only your confidence but your overall look too. That’s why there are countless hairstyles out there and each of them can highlight your best features and tone down your insecurities. Knowing the right hairstyle will help you improve your looks and boost your confidence too.
Getting a haircut can also prevent hair damage and keep it from looking dull. It’s more manageable when it’s in the right length too. Plus, you’ll stay fresh even during warmer months. So, if you noticed your hair already needs a trim, schedule an appointment with your barber.
Maintain Your Hair
Of course, once you find the right hairstyle for you, maintain it. You can do that by becoming a regular at your barbers. Some people’s hair might need extra attention on their hair, though, as their hair grows faster. But, don’t be surprised; it’s normal.
To maintain your hair, knowing the right products is vital too. There’s not a one-size-fits-all hair care product. This is because people have different hair textures.
If you have unruly hair, it’s better to use waxes and pomade to tame them. But, if your hair is thin and doesn’t require much control when styling, lighter products will do. But, then again, people have different needs and preferences.
Find a Signature Scent
The way you smell matters too. However, you can’t just rely on body soaps, shampoos, or deodorants to keep you smelling good all day. You also need to have the best cologne to get laid and will make you smell irresistible. Thus, finding your signature scent is a must.
To find the right fragrance for you, it’s important to know that your body’s aroma and the food you eat can make a huge difference in your chosen scent. The temperature can also play a part in how your perfume may smell – the warmer it is, the faster the scent evaporates and the stronger its smell is.
After understanding how your body and your location can affect your scent, try out as many fragrances as you can. Also, pay attention to the notes that it has: base (the strongest flavor), middle (the style of ascent), and top (the fragrance you smell first).
Manage Your Facial Hair
Growing a mustache or beard is okay. What isn’t, though, is if you just leave it unmanaged as it could leave a negative impression on other people, especially in women.
If you’re trying to grow them, make sure to know when to trim it. The length of your beard depends on your preference but trim it regularly to maintain its shape and your desired length.
It’s important that you wash it regularly too. This will relieve itchiness and keep your skin clean. There are different beard washes and conditioners in the market. Just look for something that matches your skin and hair type. Beard oils will help you tame your facial fuzz too. But, finding the right one for you is a matter of trial and error.
Have a Skincare Routine
A skincare routine isn’t only for women. Just because you’re a man, doesn’t mean your skin doesn’t need some TLC too. Apparently, regardless of your gender preference, a skincare routine is a must.
It doesn’t mean you’re required to follow a complex routine. Just follow a routine that works for your skin. This way, you can prevent skin problems that could cause infections, scars, and even life-threatening diseases like skin cancer. Plus, you can slow down the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Even if you have good genes, you can’t simply rely on them to age gracefully. You need to care for your skin too.
Keep Your Hands and Nails Clean
Your hands can harbor dirt and bacteria, which won’t only make your hands look dirty but also contribute to the spread of infections, especially these days. Thus, speaking of skin, you should also ensure that your hands and nails are clean.
Aside from frequent and proper handwashing, it is also important that you maintain your nails. It doesn’t mean that you need some nail art or colorful nail colors, though. A simple trim and cleaning will do. So, the germs will have fewer places to hide when they come in contact with your hands.
Some prefer a clear polish on their nails to keep them looking their best and to strengthen the nails. Others, on the flip side, might not like it, but you do you. What’s important is that they’re always clean.
Practice Good Oral Hygiene
Of course, good oral hygiene is also a must in men’s grooming. As they say, the mouth is the gateway to one’s character. So, be sure to practice good oral hygiene too. No woman wants a man with missing teeth due to bad oral hygiene.
Make sure to brush your teeth regularly and don’t forget to floss. Pay some attention to your cheek and tongue too.
And, whether or not you’re missing a tooth or you’re feeling something strange in your mouth, it is important to regularly visit your dentist as well. They can help you maintain your pearly whites and keep diseases at bay.
No matter how well-curated your wardrobe is, your grooming can still play a huge part in your confidence and how other people, especially women, see you. That said, as early as now, pay more attention to your grooming. It’s for your overall health too.
