Are you one of those clueless men who always need to be guided on how to properly groom themselves? These days, the desire to remain properly groomed all the time is not considered as vanity anymore, nor is it exclusive to women. There is now a need to be conscious of how we look so we can always be presentable in any given situation or setting. For men, this is extremely important especially when they are about to apply for a new job post or when meeting clients and customers or expanding their business networks. What are the basic grooming practices that all men need to know?
Men’s Standard Grooming Procedures
Nowadays, it is not enough for men to just take a shower and brush their teeth anymore. Proper grooming consists of other important matters. Men need to incorporate these in their daily routine as they can help them maintain a neat and comely appearance. Here are some standard grooming procedures for men that both men, and even the women who take care of them, need to know:
- Don’t forget to floss and brush your teeth several times daily.
Brushing your teeth is not enough to take away the plaque and food that regularly builds up on them. As much as possible, make sure to brush your teeth after every meal and floss as often as necessary.
- Trim and clean your nails.
Manicure and pedicure are not exclusive to women’s routine only. Men also need to make sure that their hand and toe nails are always clean. This can help you avoid contracting viruses and bacteria which are usually found in dirty or soiled hands. Don’t forget to care for your feet too.
3. Wash your face at least twice a day.
If you can’t afford to wash your face many times during the day, make sure to at least wash them twice: first, when you wake up, and second, before you go to sleep. This helps prevent dirt and dust from clogging your pores and becoming the source of skin irritations. You also need to trim your nose hairs and eyebrows from time to time.
4. Use perfume or cologne sparingly.
Yes, applying cologne or perfume can make you smell good but make sure to apply it moderately. Make sure to find the right fragrance for the lifestyle you have. If you’re leading a really active personal and professional lifestyle, you might want to be careful about wearing strong-scents at work as they may not match your natural body odor.
5. Wear appropriate clothes all the time.
Proper grooming also means choosing and wearing the right clothes picks. You need to dress properly for all times and occasions.
Proper grooming can really make a big difference in the way men carry themselves. You need to exert time and effort to ensure that you are well-groomed all the time. Do you think these tips can help you start a more “well-groomed” routine now?
