At this point, it’s pretty well known our advocation for being and looking like the best version of yourself. Not only will you feel confident in your own skin, but you’d be projecting your positive energy to those around you. Figuratively creating a cascading effect of success that can be felt miles away. While grooming to be the best version of yourself is an art form unto itself, there are a few things you can go quickly that will snazzy up your style in a jiff. Don’t get us wrong, some of the speedier grooming fixes could never replace a well thought out aesthetic for yourself. Nevertheless, there are some things you could do in a pinch.
When grooming yourself to look your best, it’s pretty standard for guys to gloss over the eyebrows. Not only are they a part not immediately visible (unless they really are), but tending to them requires utensils of sorts.
For this, a simple tweezer will do.
You don’t exactly have to go crazy plucking large chunks of hair off your face. But take a look in the mirror and pluck out some of the loose strands that could potentially distract an audience from your otherwise well-groomed face. The eyebrows are generally not a focus area for men but pay close attention to space between the brows for that perfect chic finish. (This very same philosophy also extends to nose hairs)
Now, you know how enthusiastic we are about keeping the face well-groomed (you can check out our other blogs for more!).Although it takes time and a little patience to grow a beard, keeping it in shape is just a matter of slight adjustments along the way.
Here are some great things to keep in mind when you’re tending to the face:
If you’re naturally gifted in beard growing, keep it clean and neat at all times. There is actually a fine line between a glorious behemoth of a beard and a scraggy one left alone for years.
If you’re going for a moustache look, be sure to trim it to keep it above the lips at all times. Not only will you keep loose hairs away from your food while eating, but should you find yourself in a more intimate setting, your partner will thank you.
Don’t forget the neck area from your regular shaving routine. The neck is commonplace to forgo, thinking that it isn’t apparent. The reality is much different. Whether you’re trimming or shaving completely, careful attention to the neck area goes a long way.
When you’re going for a shave, always make sure you’re using a fresh blade. It’ll guarantee that you won’t get cut, plus give you the close shave you’re looking for.
While the female market is generally the ones investing the most time and money in skincare, it’s rather strange that many men tend to forgo skincare altogether. You don’t have to go to great lengths to manage your skin. Still, by simply applying moisturizer to your skin daily (and sunblock when you’re outside), you’ll be sure to make an impression and stand out amongst those who ignore the largest organ in our bodies—the skin.
Not only is this one a bit of a doozy, but it may also be immediately relatable to a lot of men. Have you ever been in a situation where someone pointed out your zipper is down, but then after trying, you can’t seem to pull it back up? Maybe you weren’t in front of anyone, but you’d be hard-pressed in finding a man who hasn’t even gotten his zipper stuck.
Graphite lubricates zipper metal.
Yes, graphite. The very same material the lead in pencils are made of. If you ever find yourself in a situation where you can’t seem to pull your zipper back up, take some pencil lead and rub it on the teeth of the zip. It’ll start rolling in no time!
We don’t think there really is a suitable replacement for good grooming. Quick fixes definitely won’t address major concerns in your bodily aesthetics. But when you’re in a hurry, and you just need to be somewhere in time, these are just some of the things you could do to spruce up that do's
