A GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE TO BEARDS AND SHAVING

This year, build your confidence by taking better care of yourself. Your appearance can say a lot about you to potential employers, dates, and new friends. Lucky for you, there are many things you can do to help yourself look and feel more attractive. Here are the top men’s grooming tips for 2018:

Replace Toothbrush More Often

Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you. Even if you’re teeth aren’t perfect, you can have a healthy smile with a new toothbrush. Old ones have built up bacteria and broken bristles that can’t clean as well. By replacing your toothbrush every 2-3 months, your mouth will look and feel cleaner.

Take Cold Showers

While warm water may feel better, cold showers result in more benefits. When you lower the temperature, your hair and skin will keep natural oils. Your follicles will remain flat and keep a tighter grip on your scalp, meaning your hair will appear shinier and stronger.

Don’t Use Too Much Shampoo

A shampoo is used to cleanse the hair and eliminate build-up, but if you use too much you’ll be stripping your natural oils away. Those oils are the same ones that you’re trying to protect by taking cold showers. Your hair will grow faster and stronger the less shampoo you use, it will also result in shinier and stronger hair.

Shave With Better Products

Many men think that by simply using more blades, it will result in a better shave. The truth is, you should be using quality shaving products to achieve a smoother face without irritation. Nobody likes nicks and razor burn. Balms and shaving creams with a higher concentration of natural and active ingredients will result in the best outcome.

Care For Your Beard & The Skin Under It

A healthy beard can make you look masculine and improve your appearance. A beard oil will soften and condition your facial hair and the skin underneath. A good tonic will restore natural oils and leave your beard smelling good also. By caring for it, you’ll improve your overall appearance without having to shave.

Visit Dermatologist For Healthier Skin

Your skin can be affected by diet, routine, and stubborn genetics. Battle the acne away with a trip to a dermatologist. These skin care doctors can prescribe exactly what you need to eliminate problems and boost your confidence. Stop stressing about your skin care problems by partnering with a dermatologist and finding the solution that’s right for you.

Care For Cracked, Calloused Feet

Many people forget to take care of their feet, resulting in cracked and calloused skin. While it may not be on your mind most of the time, it will be the moment you kick off your shoes in public. You can use Epsom salt baths to soften your skin and eliminate calluses caused by long days on your feet. Another trick to soften your cracked skin is to slip on a pair of Vaseline filled socks at night.

Maintain Your Beard

When beards are well-groomed, they attract the right type of attention. You should always use oils and products to keep the hair shiny and clean, but you should also visit a barber to receive a fresh trimming for a professional appearance. When beards grow too long and straggly, they begin to give off the impression that you don’t care about how you appear.

Your appearance often represents your first impression to the world around you. By creating and following a grooming routine, you’re taking time to show people that you care. Take pride in the way you look by following these men’s grooming tips along with other things that fit your lifestyle. Whether you’re improving your skin with cold showers, improving your smile with a new toothbrush, or maintaining a beard the right way, there are multiple ways you can build your confidence and improve your overall appearance.
