While in the past, looking after one’s physical appearance was the domain of females, modern times are different. The millennial man is just as well-groomed as women, and there are lots of products out there specially designed for male pampering and self-care. If you feel like you’re in need of a confidence boost, feel like you are lagging behind today’s modern man, or if you want to up your game when it comes to your appearance, then these tips on how to be well-groomed will help.
Take care of your skin, and you will have a healthy glow at all times. Cleanse and moisturize when you wake up in the morning to get yourself ready for the day and do the same in the evening to get rid of any pollutants that have stuck to your skin. Always wear a sun lotion to protect your skin from harmful UV rays, and this will have the added bonus of keeping our skin looking younger for longer.
A well-groomed man always has clean hair and a good style. Visit your barber regularly to keep your haircut looking good. If you find you are thinning on top, there are hair products you can use for a fuller look. For men who experience baldness, often a short, shaved cut works well. There are also hair transplant treatments that can change your head of hair and make it look how you want. You can see hair transplant results when you look at famous celebrities such as Wayne Rooney.
Keep your facial hair neat and tidy too. Shave and trim daily and use moisturizer afterward to smooth and soothe your skin.
Modern men aren’t afraid of wearing a little makeup, and if it makes you feel confident, then go for it! Gone are the days where only rock stars just used guy-liner, now even young professionals use a little make-up to improve their image. From a little concealer to hide those dark circles to full-on contouring, it is all out there for men to enjoy. To stay well-groomed though, you want your makeup to look natural, so take your time to learn how to apply it properly.
Smelling nice is also something that any well-groomed man should care about. While you don’t want to overpower the people around you with scent, a little cologne is good. Choose musk or woody scents for the wintertime and light grassy or citrus scents for summer. Always wash and use deodorant under your arms. For daily deodorants, choose natural products over those that contain aluminum, as these are not only a healthy alternative, but you don’t get those white or yellow streaks on your clothing.
Male grooming is an industry that is booming, and now more men than ever before are spending time and money to get the look they want. When we look good, we feel good, and that has an effect on every aspect of life. If you spend a little time looking after your appearance, who knows what opportunities may be around the corner!
