Hello grooming hacks!
Try these easy fixes and tips to get rid of nagging grooming troubles and step out in style.
1) Work out before a do
Spend an hour at the gym doing a mix of cardio and strength training ahead of a big night. Practicing this grooming hack will leave you with instantly toned muscles and glowing skin. No one can then stop you from scoring a 10.
2) Banish that shaving-time skin irritation
Use a pre-shave oil for a few minutes before you shave to take the sting out. Also, try and shave post a shower. It leaves the hair follicles smooth and supple.
Smooth and easy, shaving with these grooming hacks will be super breezy!
3) No more chapped, scaly lips
Winter and chapped lips are synonymous.
If rolling on a chap stick every few minutes hurts your ego, apply a homemade mix of sugar and oil (or sugar and butter) and leave it overnight.
Should have you smiling comfortably next morning.
4) Don’t get browbeaten
If your eyebrows have a mind of their own and draw smirks wherever you go, dab a little hair gel before stepping out, to keep them in shape.
Many men nowadays are perfectly okay with slight shaping to keep brows in place.
Indulge in either of these grooming hacks and you’re good to go.
5) Say no to trickling beads of sweat
Blokes whose heads sweat every time they do, should try rolling a deodorant stick around their hairline and back of the neck.
This keeps the hairline smelling fresh and reduces head perspiration.
6) Stop hair damage
For men with sensitive hair, rigorous towel rub may lead to split ends and damaged hair.
Use a soft, old T-shirt to pat sensitive hair dry. Yes, pat em’ down, stay away from wringing them around.
Oh, and that will also reduce hair fall.
7) Hard (as) nails?
Men have tough nails and instead of struggling to cut them when they are dry, try to groom them after a long shower.
Softer nails are easier to work with.
8) Treating breakouts
Apply a homemade mixture of honey and aspirin to instantly reduce effects of acne and skin redness.
Toothpastes are also a great alternative to soothe bug bites and acne irritation.
Both these grooming hacks are equally effective. Try both and see which one works for you.
9) Shampoo without getting wet
If you don’t have time to wash your hair, rub in a handful of baby powder (or good quality talcum powder) and comb thoroughly.
Shake out any excess powder and your hair will look bouncy and smell good.
10) Tame that wild beard
Next time you shampoo and condition your hair, take a drop of conditioner and apply it to your beard too.
You will come of the shower with a fresh, well-groomed, easily manageable beard.
11) Fresh without freshener
If you don’t have a mouth wash handy after a heavy party dinner, don’t forget to ask the host/hostess for a couple of cloves or a spoon of aniseed.
These household ingredients have antiseptic properties that fight mouth bacteria.
12) Removing permanent marks
If you have a permanent marker related accident on your face, body or clothes, try spraying a generous amount of aerosol deodorant on the area.
Wipe with a clean paper towel or soft cloth towel.
