In between all the New Year resolutions, from losing weight to making more money, men’s grooming seems to fall behind. Let’s face it, while you’re looking to secure the bag, getting supple skin isn’t on your mind. However, overall wellness can greatly improve your confidence which in turn has a direct effect on smashing your goals. You see, grooming isn’t just something you do to get someone’s attention, rather, it’s an essential part of your lifestyle.
Imagine you finally land that business meeting you’ve been chasing for two years only to have the deal slip away because you showed up looking scruffy. Certainly, you’ll agree that’s terrible in every sense of the word! Considering that being well-groomed can affect you in more ways than one, we suggest you make it a resolution this new year. As a result, here are seven men’s grooming tips to help you journey through 2023 like a dapper man.
Check out 7 men’s grooming tips you should be serious about in 2023…
#1. Wash and care for your face consistently
Twenty-twenty-three is definitely not the year to slack when it comes to your facial care. Your face needs you to take better care of it and this includes maintaining proper hygiene as well as a skincare routine. I know what you’re thinking and no, this isn’t just for girls. With multiple cameras flashing at every event, you need to take proper care of your face to make sure it’s always ready for when your social-media-crazy friends drag you into a photo. If that isn’t reason enough, then how about fighting signs of aging so you don’t look 50 when you’re only 35?
#2. Moisturize your face and body
Moisturizing your skin is essential in order to keep it looking and feeling smooth, supple, and healthy. By moisturizing regularly, you’ll lock in the necessary moisture your skin cells need to perform optimally. This provides several benefits such as protecting your skin’s barrier from irritation as well as fighting wrinkles. You will do well to religiously moisturize both your face and body throughout the year. By December 2023, you wouldn’t believe your eyes and skin, I promise.
This is often overlooked, but it’s a routine that’s essential for your oral health. Daily flossing removes food and plaque trapped between your teeth which your toothbrush can’t reach. It also leaves you with fresher breath and sends gum disease-causing bacteria away. Imagine getting turned down by the girl of your dreams because you flashed an unmentionable with your first hello. Not cool, dude.
#4. Care for your facial hair
Now that you’ve joined the #beardgang, the work doesn’t stop there. The hair on your face needs regular TLC in order to keep it looking its best. This includes daily wash sessions, deep conditioning, oiling, as well as regular trims. Read up some more on how for your beards here.
#5. Don’t ignore your nails
It’s not just the girls that need a session with a manicurist and pedicurist, you do too. Unkempt nails are an eye sore that ends up diminishing people’s perception of you. In this new year, give extra attention to your nails by trimming and cleaning often. Also, try to get a pedicure session regularly.
#6. Pay attention to your outfit
This new year, say no to dirty outfits and shoes. Also, ensure your clothes are well-ironed before you dash out of the house. No more looking like you’ve been in a fight with a tiger and lost miserably. A great tip to keep in mind to make your styling session a breeze is to sort out your outfits ahead of time. This ensures that you combine what looks good and also gives you enough time to prep them properly.
#7. Invest in a good fragrance
A good part of grooming has to do with your appearance. Another aspect has to do with how you’re perceived. When it comes to the perception side of things, a nice fragrance can take your game to A1. Therefore, invest in fragrances as you go through the year.
