These five commandments of a well-groomed man.

There are secrets that only the best-groomed men know. Luckily, there are five grooming commandments every gentleman should always follow to put his best foot (and face) forward:

 

Master The Art of Shaving

In between visits to the barbershop, staying trim is a must. Your facial hair needs to be under control at all times. But don’t worry – this doesn’t require spending endless hours with a beard trimmer in hand. Instead, allow some time once a week to keep things refined and make sure to use trusted products formulated for men’s skin. Also, be sure to clip away any pesky nose and eyebrow hairs that distract from your best features.

 

Find A Signature Scent

A scent can say so much. Are you more rugged and prefer a lot of deep musk? Or do you like to keep things clean with airy notes? A signature scent can be the perfect finishing accessory for any look. And it’s an obvious and appreciated sign that you take care of yourself.

 

Pick out Proper Products

Using the proper hair products can make all the difference. Learn the difference between mousse and pomade and play around with a variety of brands to make sure you’re using what works best for you. Also, don’t be afraid to ask your trusted barber for suggestions.

 

Don’t Skimp On Skincare

Your style may change, but your skin will last a lifetime. Take care of yourself by finding easy-to-use and effective skincare products specifically formulated for men. A good cleanser, moisturizer, eye cream, and lip balm can brighten your skin and leave you looking and feeling more confident in no time.

 

Establish A Hand-Care Routine

Your hands do a lot throughout the day so treat them right. If manicures aren’t your thing (make sure you don’t knock it until you try it), be sure to clip and file your nails about once a week. You should also be sure to apply lotion after washing to keep them soft. People will notice these little things.
