Unrecognizable man combing his beardLong gone are the days when a man who spent more than 10 minutes in the shower with a bar of soap and a bottle of shampoo would be ridiculed. Today, a man is expected to adhere to a certain level of grooming. That being said, you need not spend hundreds of dollars a month on grooming products. If you are in the dark, below is a great guide to get you started.

 

Trimming your eyebrows is the first step to a neat looking facial appearance. You don’t need to go overboard with the tweezers but if you have a unibrow it would be a good idea to remove the area in the middle. Also, do a little tidying up above and below the brow line.

 

When you are next at the barber shop, ask him to shave off the runaway hair on the back of your neck. No one likes the caveman look, especially if you are supposed to be a professional!

 

Your face is one of the first things that people notice about you so treat it with care. Use a facial exfoliator once a week to get rid of excess dead skin cells and to prevent unsightly breakouts. Then, use a men’s facial soap every other day of the week to keep your face in top form. You’ll soon notice the difference!

 

Treating your nails with care is not just for girls! To have decent looking hands, all that is required is a weekly nail trim and a bit of hand cream every few days to keep them looking good.

 

Are you using the correct shampoo and conditioner? Now may be the time to evaluate this choice. For example, if you have dandruff, you should switch to an anti-dandruff variety or if you have oily hair, then a lighter shampoo would work well.

 

Once you have mastered the above tips, you should be well on your way to being a well-groomed gentleman!
