If you’re a man and you’re not taking care of your face – then, well, you need to take care of that handsome face!
You see, the most impeccably groomed men on the planet don’t just roll out bed and look as good as they do, no! They have a routine, they take care of their face and they use the products that can help them look good!
A good routine is to book in with your barbers often. Men neglect this too much and our hair and faces need to be well groomed. A barber is a route one method of achieving your grooming goals. Choose a regular barber shop and allow someone else to keep you well groomed. Also, make sure you book your next appointment while you’re at the barbers. This will keep you looking fresh.
A key part to grooming is looking after your face. Good and rough scrubs are texturized to pull dead skin and dirt off of your face to keep your face clean. Use one rougher scrub of a Sunday night and then a less rough cream on a Tuesday and Friday to keep your face in good condition. A pore strip a week is a good idea as well as it will clean the nose – which is the most prominent part of the face and thus the part of the face that gets exposed to the dirt of life more often.
Shaving is the big deal regarding men’s faces. It can be tricky, bumpy, stubbly and rough. You should equip yourself with sharp razors, creams and balms for a good shave. Also, make sure to shave as soon as you get out of a shower as the steam and heat of the water will soften your facial hair and skin. A beard oil or shave oil is a good option as well. Foam is a bit overrated as it keeps a big gap between your skin and the blade, meaning you won’t get a close shave. A good barber should be able to deal with your facial fuzz, but owning the right equipment like a good beard trimmer can help you maintain your beard between shaves. Sites like shaverinsider.com have comparisons so you don’t have to spend the time researching.
Eyebrows don’t get a lot of attention, but pay respect to the middle and don’t let your eyebrows meet! Get a pair of tweezers and pluck your brows if there are any problem areas.
Most of the fight is in owning good products – scrubs, washes, oils. Marketing can make it seem like one product is better than another, but this isn’t really true. While some more expensive products are better made, the best products will be the ones that you actually like. You may prefer hair gels over waxes, or pomade over hairspray. You might like a budget scrub over a expensive ‘microbead’ facial scrub. It is your choice and your face, so use the products that work best for you and get grooming today.
