Most men don’t really give a lot of attention to grooming. Some just get a haircut or trims their beards when it’s far too long. Others don’t really pay much attention to how they look until someone else says something. Grooming isn’t vanity; it’s just a decent thing to do.
This 2019, let grooming resolutions be part of your goals to self-betterment. Looking like you have your life together is always a great way to present yourself, not only with the ladies but also at work and just anywhere, really. Also, it doesn’t hurt if you clean yourself and grow up.
We have listed down a few grooming resolutions that you might want to take note of and hopefully work your way through this year. New year, new me, are we right?
Know how to take care of your scalp
If there is one thing that men have the patience to fix, that would be his hair. With the products that you put every day, it is important that your scalp is properly treated and cleaned. Don’t overdo your shampoo use, though — too much use can cause your hair to slowly thin out. Just use a shampoo every two or three days. Instead, you can use a conditioner to remove your hair products and clean your hair on the daily. This is much safer and gentler than shampoo.
Manage your facial scruff
You don’t have to wait until your facial hair becomes unmanageable before you trim and shave. If you want to grow a beard or a mustache, make sure that you don’t let it become too much that you would end up eating your own hair unconsciously. Ask your barber for tips on how to maintain your beard or do some research online. Buy a scissor and a shaver. It won’t hurt, we promise.
Clean your nails
Trim your nails at least once a week after your bath or shower. That way, your nails would become softer and easier to cut. Don’t wait until all the dirt build-up on your nails that it’s too embarrassing to show anyone. If you have annoying dry skin on your nail bed, you can use hand lotion or moisturizing cream to get rid of them.
Schedule your trip to the barber
Men don’t really go to the barber unless their hair is annoyingly long. Schedule a visit every 4 to 6 weeks, depending on your preference and hair growth. This way, you no longer have to worry about looking like you have a bad hair day every day.
Take care of your skin
Just because you’re a man doesn’t mean that you have a free pass on skincare. You may not wear makeup but you are still prone to harsh conditions outside. Take care of your face by choosing a gentle cleanser and moisturizer to keep it hydrated and clean. You should also put on a sunblock whenever you go out to help you prevent wrinkles and further skin damage.
