5 grooming tips for men: How to slay
Men’s grooming is a trending topic in the beauty and lifestyle industry. It is no more a topic of shame for men as more and more men speak up about their day-to-day routine and how they maintain their looks. It’s honestly weird if you don’t have a morning skincare routine now. It’s time to take care of your skin and your overall wellbeing, no gender game involved.
Building a grooming routine for yourself takes a bit of time as you try on new products and see what works for you. It doesn’t mean that you have to try on an insane amount of products and spend hours in the bathroom every day. It basically means that you find the things that work for you and stick to them unless you feel otherwise. Your daily routine should be simple, easy to do, and short.

5 grooming tips to make you look awesome
Become a regular at your barber
Having regular trimming and maintenance sessions with your hairstylist can be a real game-changer in your personality. When you notice that your hairstyle is difficult to maintain, then it’s time for a quick grooming session. For some guys, it can be a one-time thing every month, while guys with quick hair growth need to go as many times as twice or thrice a month.
Know which hair products work for you
It’s high time that men start using specific products according to their skin type and hair type. Not every product suits all and we have to get over the 3-1 product categories. If your hair is thicker and unruly, then pomade and waxes are for you. For finer-hair guys products with lighter consistency are better, and for those with no hair, there are ample products available in the market.
To find the most suitable products you need to do some research. Grooming products have a good explanation on how to use them and how they work so all you need to do is give it a read and see if it matches your needs. A bit of trial and error will get you to a nice list of products that you’d enjoy using.
Find your signature scent
We all just love the feeling when a person with a good cologne passes by, don’t we? But the too strong scent that just gives you a headache is a no-no. So, use sparingly, and instead of getting a lot of scents from different brands, just get a few ones that match your vibe. Having a constant scent is a great way of creating your own aura.
Investing in good perfumes is never going to be a bad deal for you. Don’t rush to take on the economic packs that promise a long stay, rather take your time and buy a single perfume of your choice.
Sunscreen is one product that almost every Hollywood star swears by. And why not? The product is magical. It prevents sun damage, early ageing, wrinkles, and also helps treat scarring. It’s basically doing all the jobs at once! And if you don’t like superficial tan, then it saves you from that as well.
One way to incorporate sunscreen into your daily routine without adding a product is by getting a moisturizer with at least SPF 30. You can just use the moisturizer and keep your skin protected.
Scalp care is skincare too
Generally, we tend to our scalps when we find something out of the ordinary happening, like itching or dry flaking. But that shouldn’t be the case, we should take care of our scalps just the way we take care of our skin. Since scalp care results in strong and healthy hair, less sebum buildup, and also decrease the chances of getting infections. Especially in the case of men, scalp care is utterly important.
So, to do that you would need a product or two that tent to your scalp. It could be an anti-fungal shampoo, a deep-conditioning mask, or a nourishing serum. Including scalp care in your grooming regimen will really change your hair game!
