Who Says That Grooming Should Just Be For Women?

Aug 17, 2007
In this day and age, it really does pay to look good, no matter whether you are a man or a woman. It is all about taking the time out to look after yourself ready for the day ahead of you, be it for in work place, or for that hot date with the person you have been longing for, for quite some time!

Men should look good too, even though there are some men who would rather die than admit to using grooming products!

The Products Available For Men

There is a bigger range of mens grooming products today, than ever. If you look on the internet or in mail order catalogs, you will find a fairly large extensive range, which gives you no excuse, what so ever to not look after yourself. Looking after yourself will pay off in the long run and you never know who you may bump into!

However, it is all well and good buying a few products here and there, but you really need to be able to maintain it. Seem as though men generally do not know how to pamper them, below are a few tips on how to start:

Feeling Grey?

Some men like to go grey naturally, but ditching that grey hair can really help to knock years off your look instantly. There are many hair color kits out there such as just for men, which is usually better to go for than the lesser known brands. Also, if your mustache and beard is turning grey there is also a just for men kit for that as well. So there is no excuse for those stray grey hairs anymore!

Going Bald?

One of mans biggest cosmetic fears includes going bald. So when some men actually do start, they prefer to just cut it short or shave the lot off. This is down to personal preference, and it is all down to feeling brave enough to experiment with changing your look. There sometimes is nothing sexier than a shaved head, however it all depends on what will suit you. Ask a hairdresser if you are unsure and they should be able to give you plenty of tips.

Trim Any Unwanted Hair

These days, men do like to look after themselves and sometimes some men are brave enough to wax hair from round their bodies. You can generally have anything from a chest wax to a back wax. It is all about trying to look good and sometimes a hairless body is better, but again it is also down to personal preference.

Let your skin breathe

Protecting and pampering your skin is not just for women you know. Skin damage can occur from over exposing yourself to the sun, which can in turn lead to wrinkles and skin cancer. To help protect your skin, you could use a daily moisturizer with some sunscreen and that should do the job nicely.
A daily routine should generally consist of cleansing your face, and then using a gentle exfoliating scrub which will prepare your face for shaving. Then, after shaving you should apply an aftershave balm or moisturizer, to help protect your skin and to help soothe any razor burns.

Do not Forget Your Hands and Feet!

Hands and feet tend to get left out when it comes to grooming. You should not forget either of these and they should be introduced into your grooming routine as soon as possible.
Foot odor is a very common problem amongst men. If left for a long time the foot can actually become infected, and then it will need treating by a doctor. To remedy the odor problem, take the time to scrub your feet daily and make sure that you dry them thoroughly. Take any footwear that you wear, and insert a pair of odor eaters insoles into them, or use a foot odor spray to help eliminate bad smells.

Do You Iron?

Here is a handy tip if you do not already know it. Some people do not tend to iron clothes, and if you are one of these people you should try this:
As soon as the clothes come out of the dryer, remove them immediately and hang them up on a hanger, so that the creases do not set. It is not rocket science but it can be handy and it helps you to look more presentable which is always handy when trying to impress the opposite sex!

Overall, looking after yourself need not be a chore and you should definitely not be ashamed of it! Most men in this day and age actually buy pampering products and take time out to look after themselves, even if they do not admit it! You have nothing to lose and who knows, you may even attract your perfect partner, after all, women are attracted to men who look and smell good, and a well pampered man fits that bit perfectly!
