Some guys are interested in skincare routines, hair care products and the best ways to fight signs of aging, same like us women too. My hope is to offer you real male grooming tips in a straight forward, easy to understand way. We’ll start at the top of the head and work down to the feet. It just seemed like the easiest way to do it.
If you’re a man with dry hair that’s frizzed out, there could be a number of reasons for this. For example, if you live in a cold-weather climate, wearing a winter hat can zap moisture from your follicles like crazy. But other things can cause damage; like shampooing every day or using a hairdryer too frequently.
- Skip daily shampooing and switch to daily conditioning.
- Pick up a bottle of remedy conditioner which made from natural ingredients and helps to restore texture, luster, and shine.
- Shampoo only once a week or once every other week.
- In cold weather that requires you to wear a hat, consider dabbing on a little anti-frizz cream. This will keep your hair moist so you don’t develop “static hair”.
- Some men say Biotin (vitamin B7) helps to prevent hair loss and encourage growth. Do your research on this to discover potential benefits.
- Never “scrub dry” your hair with a towel. Instead, gently pat dry. Harsh, aggressive scrubbing movements can damage your hair follicles and in extreme cases, yank strands from their roots.
- The shorter your hair, the easier it is to manage.
- If your hair is getting grey and you want to liven it up, you can either go to a professional and have it dyed.
- Use sprays and gels that don’t weigh your hair down. There are tons of products to choose for men.
- If you have dandruff, it’s possible you aren’t properly washing out the products from your hair. You could also suffer from eczema or seborrheic dermatitis. Talk to your doctor about this.
Most every man would want to prevent unwanted wrinkles and lines. The problem is a lot of them engage in the wrong routines and use the wrong products because we don’t know any better. Right off the bat, you need to know men’s skin tends to be thicker than us female counterparts. A major reason for this is collagen production. They simply produce more.
- Never use soaps on your face – ever. Most are too harsh and will strip oils and collagen from the dermal layer. Instead, use a gentle face cleanser that locks in moisture. To save time and steps, opt for a one-step cleanser instead.
- If your skin is oily, it’s important to start using a cleanser with salicylic acid. You can get a brand with such an ingredient contains inside at almost any pharmacy.
- Start exfoliating with a high-quality scrub. This will reduce the dullness on your mug and helps to dislodge debris that contributes to wrinkles. You’ll find many of these on the market but most of them are made with harsh chemicals and fillers.
- Start using a mask at least once a week and if you can do it twice, even better. Do some research to find out which mask
- Use a high-quality facial moisturizer twice a day. Don’t forget to creams on your neck.
- If you have Rosacea or are prone to red skin, talk to your doctor. An excellent product that many guys use to calm redness is Cetaphil’s Night Moisturizing cream for redness-prone skin. Dermatologist recommended.
- Start focusing on your eyes daily. One of the first places your face will show age is underneath and around the eye area.
- Use a sunblock. Its a must for every day to protect against UV lights to prevent aging of the skin and also lower the risk of having skin cancer.
- If you have stress pimples, start to incorporate acne reducing activities into your life.
- Protect your face in winter with a scarf.
- Trim eyebrows so they appear even. Never shave the space between eyebrows. Otherwise, you may cause a unibrow to grow.
- To keep eyebrows neat looking in between trimmings, use a spot of beard oil or cream. Then, use a beard brush to straighten. See info on beards below for more.
Having the most attractive skin in the world but if your teeth look crooked or have large gaps, they can take away from your appearance in a major way. Let’s face it, people notice when you are smiling and when you’re not.
- Having to brush your teeth after every meal (if possible).
- Use a high quality, fluoride toothpaste with whiteners. There are many on the market to choose from.
- Floss at least once a day. An obvious point but worth mentioning because many men don’t floss.
- Pick up a bottle of fluoride mouth wash. It is recommended you rinse when you’re done brushing.
- Visit the dentist at least 2 times a year for cleanings.
- Moisturize your lips with a balm designed to lock in moisture.
Men tend to be tactile creatures, using their hands to accomplish much work. For this reason and a host of others, the hands are one of the first areas to shows signs of old age.
- Visit the salon once per month to have a relaxing manicure session.
- If your hands are rough and dry, consider soaking them in warm water and olive oil for 10 minutes, two days per week.
- If doing manual labor, construction or household renovations, pick up a pair of Jersey gloves and use them. Most hardware stores carry.
- When camping, hunting or hiking, carry a pair of heavy-duty work gloves.
- At least twice a day, apply a high-quality moisturizer to your hands.
- When outdoors, even for short periods of time, apply a moisturizer with an SPF sunblock of 30 or higher. This will prevent sunspots and wrinkling.
- Use a moisturizing cleanser when washing hands and avoid harsh soaps. If possible, try to apply a hand moisturizer afterward.
- If you visit the gym and use free weights or machines, always wear gym gloves. You can get these at any sports store.
For men, they often forget the importance of taking care of the skin below the neckline.
- If you have back hair and it bothers you, there are ways to have this removed. One option is through laser treatments. Visit your dermatologist for more information.
- If you want to remove hair from the back at home, you can.
- Always use a moisturizer after showering or bathing. There are many on the market to choose from and the product you use needs to be linked to your skin type (dry, oily, normal).
- Avoid time in the sun if possible to prevent skin damage. If you simply can’t avoid it, use a sunblock with a minimum of SPF 30.
- Avoid tanning beds and instead, opt for a sunless tanner. You can pick these up at most drug stores.
- When showering, do not use “soaps”. Instead, opt for a moisturizing cleanser.
- If you go for massage regularly, ask your masseur to use an oil that doesn’t clog pores.
LEGS & FEET
If you are a guy, there’s a good chance you wear shorts during warm weather. Not to generalize, men probably also don’t focus on this area when moisturizing.
- When wearing shorts outdoors, apply a moisturizer that contains an SPF 30 sunblock or higher.
- If you are wearing socks (short or high) make sure you apply additional moisturizer around the ankles.
- If you manscape your legs, always use a fresh razor with the right shaving product.
- Trim toenails at least once a month with a durable clipper.
- Consider getting a pedicure from time to time. More and more, guys are doing this.
- To remove excess skin from the heel of your foot and around the pads, pick up a pumas stone. You can get these at many drug stores.
- If you have rough heels, consider soaking in warm water for at least 15 minutes.
- Moisturize your feet like any body part. Do this after every shower and be sure to cover the entire foot.
Yes, definitely all these takes time and effort and money to do it but beauty doesn’t come naturally. So work it on, guys!
