Valentine’s Day- Pre-Date Grooming Guide

So, you’ve known the facts about the day of love as well as about the various symbols that you’d find all around you during this time, it finally time to focus on yourself. If you really want to make a bolder mark and leave a lasting impression, you must start a grooming regime now to be prepped by the Valentine’s Day.

Beauty regimes also take the time to bring out the best in you. Hence, start early to get the best glow for the important day on the calendar.

This blog would lay out the grooming tips that will make you shine like a daisy on the day when it is essential.

Work on the oily skin

This is not a hidden fact that men’s skin is two-times oilier than women’s. Moreover, the stress of making the day actually work would enhance the oil production in the skin and that can be a mood-buster for you. Hence, scrub it, use the right toner and anti-oil tonic for your face to keep you shining without the actual shine on your face.

Facial hair is the new best trend

If you’ve been the one who finds it quite sexy having the stubble on your face, avoid going for a clean shave. Use the trimmer to give a new look to your beard and mustache (experiment prior to the day or else you’ll not be able to do anything). Even women love men with the stubble for all the good reasons. That’s not it! Once you’re up with the beard, you need to make sure that you keep it clean. Apply face wash to the facial hair as well without being too harsh on it.

Carry a perfume with you

Valentine’s Day falls in the mid-week this year and you ain’t on a holiday. Hence, going out with your partner after work can be the cause of your spoilt look. Hence, it is better for you to carry a few things in your bag while you head to work. Out of them, one of the most important is carrying a perfume. It’ll make you feel fresh and also let your partner feel better coming close to you.

Clean the body hair

Oh yes! It sounds too on-the-spot but the truth is that you might not know when she’s in the mood to have the whole of you. Not clean- you are not going to end up anywhere and she might leave you right there. Clean- you have chances of scoring some good points by you ability. Don’t forget to sport a passionate red men’s underwear to hint her that this was on your mind.

Smile

Last but not the least is practicing smile! After the day long work, it might be hard for you to carry on with the smile but if you don’t smile, your partner wouldn’t feel the comfort. Hence, it would affect the date. So, smile because you are somewhere where you’ve wanted to be- with your beloved.

With all things done, you just have to dress well, pick up the flowers and be prepared to woo your partner.

Novelty Underwear- Perfect for Valentine’s Day?

Florists probably are the luckiest on either Christmas or Valentine’s Day because that’s exactly when they are the richest. With the day of love not quite far, both men and women would have started preparing for the big celebration. If gifts are on your mind (which should be), male underwear is what you should consider.

Talking about underneath fashion, not the regular apparel styles would do because it is no ordinary day. What is that makes it perfect for the occasion? The collection of men’s novelty underwear is what completes the actual meaning of gifting or even buying for yourself (you know where it all ends after all).

What is novelty underwear?

Novelty pieces are those which are not meant to be worn every day. They’re made in a way that only special occasions deserve them. With a collection of varied designs, you’d find a lot of reasons to show off your skin in the products.

This blog lays down the reasons for which novelty pieces make it ideal for Valentine’s Day.

Can make you look like a million bucks

Have you ever noticed the difference in your looks when you wear regular clothes and when you switch to something made for the occasion? Well, that’s because you take out more time looking for something that that actually looks good on you. Likewise, the sexy underwear styles that are worn particularly for fewer occasions is what makes you look like a superstar.

Feels like spending less than a dime

Where the first reason talked about the increasing value, this one is more about the opposite. A pair of sexy novelties would cost you lesser than $20 to be approx. Depending on how much you are ready to spend, the quality and the sex appeal of the products increase while they come in handy if you keep a watch on your pocket. In addition, if you are expecting them to stay longer, don’t make regular pieces and that’ll increase their shelf life.

A gift worth keeping

This might sound a lot like for the women lingerie pieces, but little do you know that when men are serious about a relationship, they’ll cherish gifts. Well, when something so intimate is given as a gift, it is very well cherished for a long time. Don’t you keep card made by your partner or the shirt she gave you on your birthday? That’s exactly how you’re going to keep it in a way that it stays longer with you.

Is a powerful message for the opposite sex

You don’t give g-string underwear or sheer underwear to the person you meet a month back. Do you? You don’t because you’re not very certain about how strong the relationship is. However, when you’re too into each other and are desperately in love, it makes perfect sense. While giving a male thong to your partner, the clear message that you convey to him is that you want something in return- a night of passion or to get naughty between he sheet or something else.
