"The 'Queer Eye' effect, or the Beckham factor, taught men that good grooming and having a fashion sense are an acceptable and important part of a certain kind of lifestyle." - Tom Julian
Grooming is one of the most neglected aspects of men. Even the most stylish and fashion-oriented guy fails to give it due importance. Regardless of the reason and occasion, every guy should ensure to take this aspect seriously. Very rightly said, "Good things happen to those who groom."
Not only this, some do know the importance of self-grooming, yet there are certain common mistakes that are overlooked. Are you making such mistakes? Check them out yourself. Listed below are some of the grooming blunders that fail to catch your attention.
Poorly groomed stubble
Beards are for sure the sign of masculinity, but at the same time, it is a driving force for your style quotient. Leaving your beards and mustache to grow carelessly is the biggest mistake of committed by most men. While others do the blunder of sporting unkempt stubble. The very thing that you to consider is that the beards should complement the shape of your face. Thus, it is important that you take the advice of an expert once in a while. Visit a salon and get the stubble trimmed properly. Make sure that either shave or trim the beards regularly. You know how guys without beards look scruffy if they skip shaving for more than a day. Same is the case with the stubble.
Men with a uni-brow or fuzzy eyebrows are not acceptable anymore. Men, in general, don't know what to do with their eyebrows. They usually pluck or shave the stray hairs in the middle. However, you should be trimming them at regular intervals. I'm not asking you to visit a parlor and get the threading done every fifteen days, but there is nothing wrong in getting it trimmed in a Salon. Removing the extra facial hair will give you a neat and clean look. In the process, make sure that you get rid of the nose and ear hair as well.
Skincare is one of the most important aspects of self-grooming. Most men confuse skincare with washing the face. The texture of the skin differs from person to person. The products should be according to the texture of your skin. The oily skin calls for products with oil-control balance property. While the dry skin needs to be moisturized. Shaving should be chosen carefully. Shaving gels are usually accused of drying the skin too much. Use an appropriate aftershave lotion as the skin dies instantly after shaving. Apply a thick layer of sunscreen lotion before leaving home during Summer. Wash your face at least twice a day and keep it clean.
The wrong fragrance of men’s cologne
The biggest blunder committed by men is choosing the right fragrance of cologne. Body odor is one of the worst drawbacks in the personality of a guy. Unfortunately, the body of men is more prone to sweating and bad odor. Thus, choosing the right perfume is essential. Even for the ladies, perfume is the most intense form of memory. So, make sure that you smell good all day long. Keeping it subtle is the key to finding the perfect fragrance. Your perfume should not be very hard instead it should transform you into a gentleman.
Ignoring below the belt issues
It is not just the visible skin that requires grooming, taking care of the body organ below the belt is equally important. Remove the forest in the crotch area. This is one reason of sweat retention and manhood odor. Wear the right style and right fit of men's underwear. If you face the problem of the sweaty scrotum, then, wear the skimpy style of men's brief underwear or bikinis for men. The high cuts provide ventilation and wicks away the moisture keeping your genital dry.
