In comparison, men have it relatively easy when it comes to grooming. Some areas require a trim, others a shampoo and only a few places need a quick pluck. And yet, some men would rather not. Perhaps the time commitment is intimidating, or they feel it doesn’t make a difference to their appearance. Both preconceptions are wrong. Proper grooming takes minimal work and makes every man that much more attractive. A little guidance is all that’s needed.
First and foremost, use the right products for your hair. Summer months affect your hair differently than the fall season, so you may need to buy new products. Assess your hair needs and shop accordingly. Is your hair dry due to sun damage? Do your tresses need some curl control?
3-in-1 products are
big money savers, but they may not be giving your locks the
conditioning they need. When looking for suitable products, consider
your growing beard. A voluminous beard is attractive when properly
cared for. Make applying
beard oil a part of your daily grooming routine.
Eyebrows are another focal point that should be kept well-groomed. Pluck any stray hairs or those in-between your brows to minimize the uni-brow look. For aesthetic reasons, trimming armpit hair, as well as, manscaping has become a common practice among the younger generations. Yet, these grooming techniques also have their hygienic benefits.
Commit to Going Bare
Proper grooming can also mean going completely hairless. A hairy chest and back may have been fine during the summer months when you were letting loose and having fun. This fall season, however, it’s back to business. Long-sleeve, buttoned-down shirts are restricting and can irritate hairy backs. Chest hairs will poke through your shirt when you undo the top button. These are the realities of being a hairy individual.
Unless you prefer the all-natural look, it is okay to go hairless. If you’re looking to make a positive change, check out these options in permanent hair removal that fit your grip properly so you can easily reach the hair on your chest, shoulders, and back.
A hand held laser hair removal device may be your best bet if you’d like to remove the hair near your bum area from the privacy of your home. Shaving and waxing can cause red bumps and painful ingrown hairs, which ruin the attractive aesthetic you were looking for.
Sandal weather may be over, but at some point, your feet will be seen. Make sure they look good. If a standing appointment at your local salon is not something you can fit in your schedule, you can still give yourself a basic pedicure at home.
Start by soaking your feet in water, or after taking a shower. The skin and nails are softest at this time and will make the process easier. Slide a pumice stone across your heels to remove any dead skin and any calluses. Be careful to not rub too hard or you can end up damaging your skin. Clip and file your toenails, leaving no jagged edges. Lastly, slather some lotion on your feet to keep them silky smooth.
