We are about to come out of another lockdown and straight into the festive season. As much as looking after our appearances has not been priority number one this year, NOW is the time to step it up, I’m sharing our last years top 5 grooming tips to remind you how.Our Top 5 grooming Tips for Men 1. Skin The skin is the biggest organ in the body, and is liable to the same laws as every one of our organs – if it is pushed sufficiently hard, it will come up short. Present day life places fantastic weight on our bodies, and the skin is the first contact for the body with air contamination, chemicals in the water and ventilation. The condition of our skin is also influenced by what we eat and drink – caffeine-high items, smoking, food that’s high in fat and sugar and liquor all add stress to the skin. Skin Care Tips: * Cleanse the face and neck with a chemical free cleanser, at least once every day. * Use an oil-free facial moisturiser and lotion for rest of the body * Once a month give your skin a deep clean using a face scrub and rich moisturiser or serum to rehydrate your skin, or book in for one of or facial treatments 2. Shaving Shaving isn’t as essential these days as it used to be but having a beard or stubble isn’t for everyone. To give yourself the best shave: You should always shave after you shower as your stubble is warmer and cuts easier. Use a good shaving cream or shave gel and always use a good quality razor. Razor burn is the scourge of shaving for many men. It is caused by the friction of the razor as it passes over almost invisible folds in the skin, and is irritated more by hot water, chemicals in shaving products and sweat. You can reduce, and even eliminate, razor burn by altering your shaving technique. Shaving Tips: * Using an exfoliate regularly removes the dead skin cells which can clog a razor. * Wet your face with warm water and apply the shaving cream or gel. Leave for 2 minutes to soften the bristles. * Use a triple bladed razor as it is more efficient. Pull the blade in the direction the hair grows, not against – this is the most common cause of razor burn. * Try to avoid re-shaving areas of your face; only pass every spot once. * Rinse off any residue – it may cause irritation. Apply an aftershave balm – a great balm is pure aloe vera gel, which is soothing and healing to the skin. 3. Hair Make sure the style you choose you feel comfortable wearing and can style yourself. One of the best men’s grooming tips you can get: Invest in an appointment with a good barber and ask for advice on what styles would suit your face shape and lifestyle. Once you have a really good styled cut, it is much easier to keep your hair looking good. Hair products for men have increased in both number and quality in recent years. Greasy hair is not a good look, so use a good quality shampoo and conditioner as often as needed to keep your hair looking shiny and clean. Choose from the wide range of hair grooming products on the market to keep your hair styled and neat throughout the day. Many men blow dry their hair these days, it’s worth the extra 30 seconds of work as it makes your hair much easier to style and helps you keep that great look all day long. If you consider dying your hair to hide the grey or just to add a bit more fun to your style always seek out professional advice. 4. Face Wash your face twice a day using a cleanser suitable for your skin type. If your face is oily and prone to acne, use a face wash containing salicylic acid. If you have dry skin, use a moisturizing face wash, and if you have sensitive skin, use a mild cleanser that’s fragrance-free. After washing your face, apply a moisturiser. Whitening creams also reduce pigmentation considerably which is good for those facial surface scars or age spots. Men are more prone to age spots anyway so a face whitening cream or fairness cream for men is essential. 5. Nails Do not forget to cut your nails regularly. Not just your fingernails, but this includes your toenails as well. They have to be kept clean at all times. Having dirty nails is a total turn off not just for women, but to humans in general! Your dog mightn’t mind your two inch toenails, but everyone else will! Besides, keeping your nails clean is part of proper hygiene. People always assume that a person who has clean nails is someone who is neat and has good proper hygiene. Remember that with dirty nails, you also increase the chances of smelly feet, so keep those nails clean and short! ... See MoreSee Less
