Men who yearn to make lasting impressions and statements in social circles take their time in the grooming process. They are aware that, the world is watching (whether voluntarily or involuntarily is not really relevant) and is making an impression based on how they look. While many men get things in the grooming department right, there are a few common mistakes that we’re seeing happening over and over again.
Poor beard maintenance
Shaving or clipping your beard hurriedly in the morning is often not enough. You should make sure to invest in quality combs (yes, that can make a difference), and a good mirror to get a precise cut.
The accessories you use can help you a lot. Moreover, using beard oil or other similar products can have a positive effect on the overall shine, shape, and health of your beard.
Forgetting to eliminate nose hair
Small details such as nose hair can make you look unpolished. Whether you are in an impeccable suit or the trendiest casual wear, other people will still notice the unattended hair. Do away with it as often as possible using the appropriate hair clippers. When in doubt, ask a pro or two or a buddy who always looks fresh.
Keeping ear hair
Just like nose hair, keeping ear hair is not appealing to most people and it makes you look older than you actually are. It can also be indicative that you are not keen details. The tools used for removing ear hairs must be designed in a way that it does away with the hairs quickly without causing injuries.
When it comes to hairstyles, it is very important to find a haircut that works for you and to maintain it, especially if you are starting to go grey and have rebel hairs. You can have multiple haircuts that suit you and change between them. If you are not sure, we always say that a buzz cut is better than an unkempt elaborate haircut. Moreover, it is of the essence to keep your hair clean and use the right hair styling products for you when needed. When you don’t need any special products, simply don’t use them!
Having a poor skincare routine
Some men forget that people notice their face before anything else. As such, they do not have a skincare routine consisting of things such as exfoliation, use of sunscreen, and moisturizing. The skin may be laden with black spots, unevenness, and dullness. This can be avoided by finding the right products for the skin and setting aside time for the activity.
Always start with cleaning the skin using warm water and follow it up with moisturizing. Exfoliation can be done twice every week or so, depending on your environment and how your skin reacts to it. Further, find products that encourage collagen renewal to maintain a youthful look.
Failing to comprehend the overall body health
Regardless of what you do externally in the grooming process, the results remain negative if you do not know how your overall body system works. The aspects of drinking enough water, exercising, taking the right diet, doing away with high-stress levels, and sleeping well are important in creating a youthful look. Men who research this area and use the information to make lifestyle changes always stand out in the crowd.
The word moderation is critical in grooming. Unfortunately, some men overlook this essential thing and instead opt to use too much hair products and soak in cologne. They will take hot showers with the hope of doing away with oils and sweat at the end of a long day. Also, every aspect from your eyebrows to your hair color to everything else can make you look off if you go overboard. While it is very important to be as polished as you can, doing it too much will result in something being wrong, without anything sticking out, which can be a confusing look.
All in all, if you find the right products and take time and pay close attention to details, you will find yourself looking great in no time and, if you make sure to have a good routine, with little effort too.
Being well-groomed is of the essence and can make you look and feel great in almost all situations you will find yourself in, which is why it grooming should be an important aspect of your styling.
