Beauty routines aren’t just for the ladies, lads. Although it might seem intimidating, you should know that looking good doesn’t have to be complicated. You can still look your best with a routine that’s simple and quick. Here are some practical hacks to keep you looking good without much effort.
Brush and floss twice a day, every day
Flash those pearly whites with confidence by making sure you brush and floss twice a day, every day, without fail. Being diligent about oral care is guaranteed to keep cavities at bay and keep your breath smelling fresh just in time for that kiss at the end of your date. Don’t forget to pay your dentist a visit every once in a while too, you might just be due for wisdom teeth removal or teeth cleaning session.
Multitask whenever possible
Living a fast-paced and busy lifestyle is no reason to not be able to keep yourself clean and tidy. The secret is to find pockets of time to do multiple things at once. For example, you can shave while you shower, or trim your nails while you watch TV. Before you know it, you’ll get both your chores and your daily grooming routine done in no time.
Put your barber on speed dial
Avoid looking like a caveman by making it easier to keep your hair looking its best. Put your barber on speed dial and make sure they’re close to where you live. A great barber is hard to find, so if you’re lucky enough to find one who knows your hair well, keep them close by.
Find a face wash that works for you
If you’re still using body soap to cleanse your face, this is your wake up call to stop doing that. Body soap can strip your skin of its natural moisture and leave it dry, cracked, and dull. This can cause breakouts and premature wrinkles. You’ll have to find a face wash that works best for your type of skin. For most men, changing their soap is enough for them to achieve a healthy, clear complexion, but if you’ve got especially problematic skin, then you might want to consult with a dermatologist to see what other products you can add to your daily regimen.
Pick out a signature scent
As it turns out, all those Axe body spray commercials aren’t so far from the truth. Smelling great really can make you seem more attractive. Studies show that certain fragrances influence how others perceive you, so you definitely want to wear a scent that allows others to perceive you as masculine, accomplished, and sophisticated. Opt for musky, woody, clean, and spicy scents to achieve this and avoid overpowering ones. When applying it on yourself, keep it light — you don’t want to suffocate people with your cologne. A few sprays on your neck and wrists will suffice.
Trim your nails
Fingernails and toenails are breeding grounds for all sorts of bacteria and dirt. Keep them clean by keeping them short. Just be sure not to cut too short and follow the natural shape of your fingernail or you could hurt yourself.
