  1. Whether for summer vacations or weekend getaways, it's easy to pack your whole world and then ultimately unpack because your bag was overstuffed. In the midst of all this hassle, chances are you will miss out on packing your grooming essentials. Following a daily regimen can be hard and hence, to keep it simple and time-saving for you, here are all the basic things to add to your travel bag when you are on to go: 1. Face Wipes © Getty Images While on a vacay, chances are your skin could start looking dull, dry and dehydrated. Carrying a pack of face wipes can cleanse your face in seconds, without making you feel the need to rush to the washroom. These are quite useful and can steer clear of the grime accumulated on your face. 2. Mouthwash © Getty Images A mouthwash comes handy during long journeys. No, we are not saying you don't add a toothbrush but carrying a mouthwash helps when you are short on time. All you need to do is swish it in your mouth and feel fresh instantly. 3. Lip Balm © Getty Images Chugging water can fight dehydration but keeping a lip balm will help your lips revive if they are chapped during the journey. Most lip balms come in small packaging and hence it's important to stow it in your kit. 4. Moisturiser © Getty Images A small and sturdy bottle of moisturiser for your face is a travel must-have. It reduces the glaring signs of fatigue and the lightweight formula will instantly energise your face. It's a great deal to bank on! 5. Battery Operated Razor © Getty Images An electric, battery-operated razor will prove beneficial, not just in your travel kit, but also in your grooming arsenal. It's definitely a hassle-free choice and an ideal swap for shaving creams that you can rely on while travelling. 6. Face Wash And Scrub © Getty Images We don't want you to follow a long regime while you wish to enjoy the trip. So, get your hands on a two in one product that helps fight dead skin cells and keeps your skin smooth and clean with its goodness. Thank us later! 7. Carry An Antiperspirant Deodorant © Getty Images Adding a deodorant to your travel kit is obvious but instead of carrying a gigantic bottle, opt for a mini size, anti-perspirant deodorant that fits in your small travel bag. There are a plethora of pocket deodorants available and trust us, they are the best suitable alternative to own!
  2. There's always an urge to follow a grooming routine when you have a day off or while relaxing. We get it! But when it comes to giving your skin a chance to glow post workout, you generally tend to skip it, assuming the routine will take longer. Our guide will help you elevate your post workout regimen so you don't perspire during your boardroom meetings. Get ready to be the savvy gym-goer, right away! 1. Wash Your Face With A Mild Cleanser © Getty Images A meticulous workout session may make you proud, but for your skin, that's not the case. Sweating is a way to detox but when it mixes with the dead cells, your pores could get clogged. Don't be the guy who doesn't care and use a gentle face wash to steer clear of the oily skin and blackheads. 2. A Quick Body Cleanse © Getty Images That worked up sweat now needs a heavy duty shower gel. Use a vitamin packed body wash to hydrate and refresh your body. Invest in a good foaming option that helps you get rid of the stink and lets you stride with a good whiff. 3. Wash Your Hair © Getty Images Using a shampoo post workout sesh is vital, but in case it means you have to lather your hair again within 24 hours, we suggest you go for a dry shampoo. Shampooing often can take away the natural oils. A dry shampoo is a quick fix to steer clear of the odour and grime. 4. Don't Overdo Your Hair © Getty Images As tempting as a hair gel can look, applying too much can mess up your hairstyle. Take a pea sized amount and work it on your hair for a natural look. 5. Do Not Shave © Getty Images It is advised to not let the blades come in contact with your skin post workout sesh as it's quite sensitive at this time. If you have a date night or a meeting, remember to shave a day before. Lack of time means cuts and bruises and we don't want that. 6. Moisturise Your Skin © Getty Images We all need a skin nourishing cream to tackle dryness. And not just your face, but all the drying regions like elbows, knees, heels - need hydration. A quick massage with a lotion will leave you with a lasting fragrance, plus relaxation. 7. Slather Some Sunscreen © Getty Images Basking in the sun has become a part of your life, but not shielding your skin will damage it. Head out applying an SPF 30 sunscreen and use it as a part of your daily routine. 8. Look Good, Smell Fresh © Getty Images Finally, the last step to not reek of disgusting odour is by using a fresh cologne, sprayed on the pulse points. Remember, less is more!
  3. Grooming down there can be tricky business. It can also be rather intimidating for someone trying to groom down there for the first time. Did you know that there is a list of things that you should keep in mind before you groom down there? And the thing is, these things will make a substantial difference to your grooming routine. 1. Always Disinfect Your Razor/Trimmer Before Use © Getty Images Start with rinsing off the blades with hot water. Then, add a small dollop of dish soap to the blades, and scrub the razor with a toothbrush to remove any grime present. Finish with washing the soap off the razor using hot water. Rinse off the blades with hot water. If you want to go a step further, you could apply a cleaning agent like rubbing alcohol or hydrogen peroxide. 2. Start Off With Scissors © Getty Images You can start off with trimming your pubic hair. This not only cuts your time to half in terms of using a trimmer or a razor but also streamlines the approach. 3. It's Best To Keep It Uniform It looks a little funny if you groom down there but let your chest hair be or the other way. If you've booked yourself a grooming session or scheduled time for it at home, make sure you go all the way. 4. Take A Shower Before © Getty Images Taking a shower helps in more ways than one. Firstly, it makes the whole process hassle-free and secondly, the after shave skin will be extremely smooth to touch. 5. Use Rash Creams Generously © Getty Images Rash creams are a blessing to humanity in general. Two pumps of a rash cream can save you from itching and razor burns later. 6. Use Gel-Based Razors © Getty Images If you prefer razors to clean up, you should probably prefer gel-based razor that comes with lubrication with aloe vera or any other soothing agent that quickens the process of cleaning down there.
  4. Friends, if you believe that all of your grooming habits are quite impressive, then you have been living under a rock. Here's the thing with women. They consider themselves grooming experts and they are not biased because ultimately the tips are applicable to men as well. If you groom too much, she will find it unattractive and when you don't, she will notice you have stopped putting in efforts. Here are some grooming habits your girlfriend secretly hates. Believe us, this is exactly the fix you need! 1. Stop overloading yourself with fragrances © Getty Images It's quite easy to go overboard with the cologne you use. While it may seem like an excellent call for you, that isn't the case with her. Your overdone aroma is not the way to cast a spell on your other half. This is going to scare her and would only make her feel that you never got in the shower. Sorry. 2. Dry skin © Getty Images If she hasn't been cuddly or mushy with you in the last few days, chances are it's your dry skin. Do yourself and her a favour and use a good moisturiser. 3. Back hair is a BIG NO NO © FunnyAnd Imagine, it's your first time in bed with her and she notices your back that's only a carpet of hair. Sounds dreadful, right? Wax or trim, that choice is absolutely yours. Plus, your hair growth will only lessen over time. Win-win, guys! 4. No dirty feet and nails, please © Getty Images Two things that are an instant turn off: dirty feet and nails. If her attention diverts anywhere here, you have already lost your chance. Keeping them dirt-free and trimmed is an ideal way to be in her good books. 5. Dandruff on tees *Ick* © Getty Images Impeccable hair quality is one thing and dandruff is another. If you don't want her to run a scan on your t-shirt, use a roller duster before your romantic date. 6. Body odour © Getty Images There's a fine line between using your cologne too much and not using it at all. Bad body odour will make her question your hygiene list and to not let that happen, work on your bathing schedule. 7. A lot of hair wax © Getty Images Hair wax, without a doubt has been a part of grooming for men, but remember that center shock ad? Yes, that's exactly what your girlfriend hates. Use hair wax only to keep your hair looking clean. 8. Not flossing © Getty Images Bad breath happens when there's plaque buildup, and this is a definite reason for her to run away from you. Start flossing after brushing your teeth and she will thank you for it. 9. Chapped lips © Getty Images Firstly, stay away from stereotypical thoughts that lip balms are for women. No, they are for you too. So, get one and keep your lips hydrated.
  5. We live in strange times and weird things happen around us all the time. However, things become even more mind-boggling when stranger things begin to make sense. In 2016, we heard a Meerut based cleric report that his wife was threatening to commit suicide if he didn't shave off his beard. If you find that weird, then read this. A Times Now report has shared that a 23-year-old woman from Madhya Pradesh has filed for divorce from her husband, because her 25-year-old partner refused to shave and bathe for 7-8 days at a stretch. (c) Reliance Entertainment The couple married last year, and upon hearing their mutual plea, the Bhopal family court has asked them to live separately for six months before granting them a divorce decree. via GIPHY A court counsellor Shail Awasthi told PTI, “Women now-a-days are separating from their husband over petty issues. This woman, who hails from Barigarh near Bhopal, complained that her husband stinks and when she asks him to bathe, he wears perfume to beat the odour.” via GIPHY Well, that's something. And regardless of the absurd premise for seeking divorce, it kind of still makes sense. In a way, this is sort of a life lesson for men to take their personal grooming needs more seriously. As we can see, nowadays even grooming or lack of it can make or break the deal, and honestly no woman or man likes a stinking, shabby partner. So, we can't really blame this woman, can we?
  6. Skipping taking care of yourself once or twice works, but skipping the process on a regular basis starts reflecting on your skin. And you might think that these signs are barely noticeable, but they're the first things that your date might notice about you and can be a huge turn off. Apart from that, if you don't take care of yourself regularly, you expose yourself to a tonne of health risks. So, here are a few disastrous consequences that you might face if you're casual about these things: 1. A Cluster Of Pimples Not keeping you face clean and hygienic can lead to a tonne of pimples on your face. Especially if you don't have a good anti-acne face wash. © Getty Images 2.Pits Of Blackheads If you don't take care of your face on a daily basis, oils and dirt and can seed in to form both white heads and black heads. The surface area of your face has a great tendency of becoming a place where all of this sits. © Getty Images 3. A Skin Infection Not taking a shower daily, or at all leads you to have a skin infection in the form blisters that might pop up on your skin and worse even on your face. © Getty Images 4. Body Odour We're talking bad stench reminiscent of trash cans. If you don't take care of your body you could have a bad breath, stinking pits, and awful smelling pubes. Not desirable at all. © Getty Images 5. Dirty Nails Dirt-filled nails is another downside of not cleaning up on the regular. Hands and feet are one of the first things a woman notices. © Getty Images
  7. When you're shopping for shaving supplies, it's almost impossible not to feel a little intimidated by the sheer number of products out there. If you go to the supermarket, you find that there's a whole aisle dedicated to them. The same thing happens when you shop online and are confronted by pages upon pages of search results. In fact, you probably wouldn't be alone in wondering if you should be adding several steps to your trusty shaving routine in order to get the best results. Gentlemen, it's time for you to dispel these doubts from your mind. Shaving is an important element in every man's attempt to look well-groomed, but there's really no need to overcomplicate it. The fact of the matter is, if you buy every new shaving product you see in a blind panic, you're likely to end up with a collection of shaving paraphernalia that doesn't really go well with each other. The result? You end up with underwhelming grooming results and do your skin more harm than good in the process. What's The Solution? A top-of-the-line razor and some shaving cream are not enough to get the best shave, and hundreds of shaving products are nothing but overkill. What you need to achieve grooming perfection is a shaving kit. What's that, we hear you ask? It's a pre-packaged set of grooming products that work together cohesively to give you the smoothest shave possible. It's a real no-brainer - someone else does all the hard work of putting together the best products into one set, and all you have to do is go through the motions and enjoy your great shave. What's more? Buying one of these kits is much cheaper than buying each component individually, so you make some great savings too. Not only are they great for your appearance, but they're also excellent long term investments for the spruced-up gent who takes his appearance seriously. What To Look For What constitutes a great shaving kit is really a matter of personal taste and depends on your grooming requirements. Some men need a whole gamut of shaving as well as pre and post-care products to look their best. Others (the lucky ones) require just the basics to achieve the desired result. As luck would have it, there are many such kits on the market right now, each with its own set of products to offer. Selecting the best shaving kit from this multitude of options can be a tough task, but we've put together the following list of options that deliver in terms of product and value, to help with the selection process.

  8. If you're sure that your date night is going to get extended to something....else, for sure, you need to read this. While it's okay to be unprepared when you're not expecting anything, but for the nights that you're expecting consensual goofing around, it's always best to keep yourself prepared. For some annoying grooming problems that can spoil things at the last minute, read this, and for the must-follow rules that you might forget, keep reading. 1. Manscaping © Getty Images Without doubt, this is the first thing you should take care of. If you definitely know that your date night might end up with you and your date in a bed or in the backseat of your or their car by the end of it, you need to take care of grooming down there. This is always appreciated by the other person, unless you have verbalized your preferences which anyway becomes important at a later stage. 2. Taking Care Of The Sweat © Getty Images Sweating is normal, but you can't forget taking precautions, especially before a date night. Make sure you've used a roll-on deo for a long lasting coverage against sweat and body odour. 3. A Case Of Bad Breath © Getty Images Talking about bad odour, make sure you don't have bad breath on the big night. Make a travel stash of mints and face wash. Keep it with you for wherever you go, so you can use it in times of emergency or just pop a mint before the date just to be safe. 4. A Handy Concealer © Getty Images You might think that this is something that your girlfriend uses, right? No, a concealer is the blessing given to you that you never acknowledged. This stick will give you the freedom to receive hickeys wherever you want them, sounds good right? Post-makeout, just swipe it over the hickey, blend it well and voila, the hickey vanishes on its own. 5. Snip Your Nails © Getty Images Nails have to be snipped every two weeks. Snip your nails especially before a date. Nails with visible clingy dirt is a huge turn-off. And you don't want a minor detail like this to ruin things. 6. Moisturize © Getty Images It's super important to moisturize your body before going out for the date. Dry skin is not very pleasant to touch.

If You Have Random Whiffs On Your Neck © instagram If you have a beard, then these random whiffs on your neck are still acceptable, but if you prefer to be clean shaven except you have random hair strands on your neck, that's a bad place to be in.

If You Have Body Odour © Gettys images Your date might be going really well, but if you raise your arms and suddenly you find her frowning and making funny excuses to leave, you know what went wrong.

  10. As one of the youngest religions in the world, Sikhism glorifies the practice of growing one's hair out. More so, for spiritual and religious purposes, but it's said, that by avoiding a trim/cut, Sikhs honour their almighty as well. Besides, it's a symbol of freedom and equality. But while their tresses are most often covered with turbans, their beards do see the light of the day. They are subjected to every day climatic changes, the pollution, dust and external elements, that affect their over-all hygiene and health. Since the beard is almost like a uniform for the Sikhs, it's unfair to not pay heed towards maintaining it. Long story short: we're here with a decisive routine for Sikh men, to keep their glory-beards in top form. © Instagram/houseofwaris 1. For basics, invest in the right edibles You are what you eat, so the most fundamental trick to a healthy and lustrous beard is to maintain a diet that's rich in nutrients. Indulge in healthy fats like avocados, omega-3s, nuts, eggs, vegetables (of course) and ample amount of protein (helps in hair growth). In addition, ensure that your intake of biotin is adequate as well. Don't forget to add antioxidants and vitamins as it helps to build up collagen which promotes hair growth. The best way is to have a balance diet to get the micronutrients into your system.. © Getty Images 2. Ever heard of a Beard Wash? As the owner of an unshorn beard, you need to use a beard wash for sure; to help you cleanse and soften it. Beard wash contains organic and skin friendly ingredients. The best beard wash is one that doesn't contain sulphates and parabens. HOW TO APPLY: Wet your beard with lukewarm water and apply beard wash directly at the roots and massage it gently on your beard and the skin underneath so that it exfoliates and cleanses it. Never forget to wash your beard with beard wash everyday if you use hair styling products, otherwise just wash it with lukewarm water and oil it once/twice a week. P.S. Never ever use a head shampoo on your beard, as the skin on your face is different than that of the scalp. Choose a milder shampoo (beard wash) for your beard. © Getty Images 3. Use a beard oil to keep your beard healthy In order to add a feather to a Sikh Man's turban, the primary tip is to always oil your hair for a lustrous and crisp look of the beard. The best oil is one that is composed of essential oils that condition and moisturize your hair follicles and the skin beneath it to give a calming and soothing effect. It helps to keep everything in place. 4. Use a conditioner Hair conditioner is a hair care product used to improve the feel, appearance and manageability of hair. Its main purpose is to reduce friction between strands of hair to allow easier brushing or combing, which might otherwise cause damage. Using a conditioner is totally up to one's preference as it depends on the type of hair one has. If you think your beard's frizzy or rough, we recommend you to use a conditioner. © Getty Images Steps you need to follow to groom your beard post showering, conditioning and moisturizing: 1. Hold your horses and let your beard dry until it's semi-dry. Never use styling products on a wet beard as you will end up using a lot of it. 2. Always tie your beard as it gives a cleaner and presentable look. Since Sikhs can't trim or shape their beard, it's better to set it using a beard wax/taft hair spray. 3. Don't use excessive hair styling products on your beard as it damages the skin underneath and spoils the hair strength and cements your hair to your face which looks extremely ugly. © Getty Images 4. Try to straighten your beard with a comb instead of brush as it gives a cleaner look and also prevents damage to your fragile hair on your face. Always comb in the direction of the grain of your beard. © Getty Images 5. Use a fairly loose rubber band to tie your beard, as a tighter rubber band would cause hair loss and irritation. If you have a fairly long beard, you can use a small bobby pin to keep your beard in place. 6. Finally, blow dry your beard so that it can stay in place throughout the day and makes you look dapper. © Getty Images And voila, you're all set!

  14. Whether you favour the clean shaven look, proudly maintain a bushy beard, or sport a facial hair style that falls somewhere in between these two, it's impossible to give up shaving completely, at least not if you want to look well groomed! Although men today gravitate towards the electric trimmer to help 'shave' seconds off their morning shaving ritual as they rush to work, they can't hope to match up to the smooth, close shave that the good old safety razor offers. The O.G. of shaving implements, the safety razor was the first shaving tool curated to reduce the reliance on professional barbers and put the power into your own hands (quite literally!). The origins of the safety razors we know today, i.e., a handle attached at right angles to a head in which a removable blade can be placed, can be traced back to early 19th century. Including a protective layer between the blade edge and the user's skin dramatically reduced the level of skill needed to shave injury-free, adding a 'safety element' to the design. Since then, the safety razor has evolved into a highly specialised piece of shaving tech that provides professional-level shaves right in your own bathroom. So, if you take your appearance seriously, adding the best safety razor to your grooming routine is the smartest decision you can take. And on that note, we've compiled this helpful list of the best options out there, to make your choice a little easier, and your morning shave much smoother (and safer).

  15. If you're prepping for the big date that you've been looking forward to for a very long time, it'll be very unfortunate if you blow it off with your own silly mistakes. So, here's a guide for you so that you don't make any disastrous mistakes that'll probably turn the other person off. Apart from a lot of things that could go wrong fashion-wise, there are also certain grooming mistakes that you're likely to make. Here is a checklist to avoid these mistakes: 1. Bad Breath This tops the list of things you might forget to check before you step out. Before the big date, you could either take a look at these steps or pop a few mints to make sure your mouth doesn't reek of anything bad. It's important to have clean white teeth too. If you think your teeth have started to turn yellow, it's better to book a dentist appointment and get the routine cleaning done beforehand. 2. Body Odour View this post on Instagram A post shared by Tiger Shroff (@tigerjackieshroff) on Jan 3, 2019 at 10:55pm PST If you have a date at the end of a long working day, it doesn't hurt to freshen your pits with a dash of deodorant or a roll on, so that you can raise your hands freely like Tiger Shroff. 3. Unkempt Hands © Instagram One of the many things that your date will notice about you is the way you keep your hands. If they look like the picture above, she will be disturbed by it even if she doesn't show it. Think about it this way, if you spot dirty nails you would be equally grossed out too, right? It works both ways. 4. Unkempt Beard & Hair © Instagram If your hair and beard are dishevelled and you look like you just got out of bed for a date, probably because you want to send out a message that you want to keep things casual by being casual, it's a bad move pal. This won't get you a second date in the very least. Get a salon appointment before you go for your date and make sure your final look is clean and polished. This will definitely get you brownie points, trust us. 5. Not Making An Effort © Instagram Remember, the Beyonce-Ed Sheeran concert? It was outrageous for Ed Sheeran given the sheer contrast in his and Beyonce's get ups. She wore an elaborate gown and he turned up in jeans! The idea is not to go over the top with your efforts. However, keeping in mind where your date is set, you certainly can make some quality effort that goes on to show that you care, which will most certainly be appreciated by your date.
  16. We're sure that so far you've got your grooming basics right and you're most probably washing your face at least once a day and using a moisturizer (if you're not, you should definitely read this). But apart from that, there is one essential grooming product that men fail to add to their grooming kit that can change their skins for good. A BB Cream. © Getty Images South Korean beauty and grooming secrets are a treasure and should be adapted because have you seen these guys age? They never do. A BB Cream, a South Korean discovery is that one product you should definitely have in your grooming kit. BB creams also known as blemish balms aim to blur out imperfections whilst also taking care of pigmentation, oil control and hydrating skin simultaneously. It also gives the benefit of sun protection, oil control and an anti-ageing in one cream. © Getty Images It's also an easy remedy to cover scars, blemishes and skin discolouration like an Instagram filter, except this work in IRL being a product squished inside a tube. © Getty Images They might look like it's a feminine product, but they also come in unisex packaging. Use a BB cream next time before a big date to hide the bugging pimples, scars and blemishes. It really makes a difference.
  17. All grooming products come with an expiry date which means you'll have to dump them at some point. With weather conditions like that of India's, it's likely that the expensive products you buy will get spoiled well before their expiry date. That's the worst scenario you could imagine, however, there is a preventive measure that you can take from stopping your grooming products from spoiling like storing them in the fridge. Besides lasting longer, they will even feel better on your skin. Here are four products that you should be storing in the fridge: 1. Fumes © idiva Without a doubt, you should be storing your fumes inside of the fridge. The heat and humidity degrade the quality of the fume. 2. Eye Cream © innisfree green tea seed eye cream Firstly, if you don't have an eye cream, get one. Especially if you don't want racoon eyes for the rest of your life. Secondly, put that in the fridge. Besides, a chilled out eye cream works better in soothing and de-bloating your blood vessels under the eye. 3. Beard Oil © prospector They tend to become a little runny in the Summer heat. Shove them in the fridge for uniform consistency. Also, the emollients degrade when they come in contact with the UV rays. 4. Toner/Moisturizer © Dove Again, just for the immediate benefit of how it would feel on your skin in its chilled glory. But in case you're using organic products, they anyway shouldn't be outside.
  18. Some men view it as an inconvenience and try to avoid it altogether, while some view it as an essential part of their everyday routine. It's even possible that you fall somewhere in the middle of these two opposing viewpoints and do it occasionally. Regardless of what your personal opinion on shaving is, the fact of the matter is that it's something almost all of us do. And at a time when bushy beards are all the rage, the clean shaven look can be seen as a breath of fresh air, which is why you'll find several celebrities and A-listers championing it at work, on the red carpet, and even on the sports field. As it happens, even the most bushiest of beards needs its fair share of maintenance, which requires even the whiskered gentleman to display a certain level of competence with the razor and invest in the best grooming products in order to maintain the tag of 'well groomed'. Why Do You Shave? Before you head off to shop for shaving supplies straightaway, you need to make sure you're stocking up on the right stuff. Whether you're shaving your whole face or carefully detailing around your beloved beard or moustache, the products you use can make quite a difference. If you're a fan of the clean shaven look and are willing to invest the time it takes to give yourself the smoothest possible shave everyday, you should look into finding a good shaving cream. However, if a couple of minutes before you rush off for work is all you can spare for your daily shave, then the right shaving foam is what you need. Why Shaving Foams?

Just splash your face with water and with a couple of sprays of the can, you instantly have a light, airy lather which is incredibly easy to apply, remove with the blade, and rinse away with the next splash of water.

  19. We all deal with unwanted hair. It has been an annoyance for men and women alike since puberty. Although, men face a teeny bit of extra issues when it comes to stubborn facial hair. Your everyday shaving and occasional routine of trimming body hair may be set, but there is hair that sprouts on the most unruly areas too. Yes, we're talking about ear and nose hair. Everyone talks about nose hair but ear hair also needs to be acknowledged and dealt with. The occasional men's grooming routine should include taking care of ear and nose hair as well. Period. Here are some grooming tips and methods that can help you get rid of those nasty little buggers: Tweezing © hairclippers If you spot just a few noticeable hair popping out of your ear or nose, the best way to take care of that business would be to tweeze them. Yes, each pull will hurt but if you have the threshold for it, why not? Tweezing generally gets the hair out from the root itself and the hair won't grow back for a long time. It's a solution you can adapt if you only have a few strays. Trimming © XYroutine Since many trimmers are basically designed for both nose and ear hair, you shouldn't have a problem finding one that can swing both ways. A trimmer makes sure there is no pulling at the skin and reduces the chances of getting cut. Trimmers designed for the very purpose have an angled head, which allows for better reach and control. Waxing © Pinterest As more and more men adopt the metrosexual lifestyle, waxing ear and nose hair are extremely common. What you need to keep in mind during a waxing session is that ears are extremely sensitive and should only be waxed by professionals. Many home-kits for nose hair removal are, however, actively available in the market. Hard wax would be applied to the area, allowed to set, and then quickly pulled off. Use ice water to soothe the skin after a waxing session. Nip those distracting nose and ear hair in the bud by regularly spending a few minutes grooming then time and again. Put your well-groomed self forward, guys!

  22. While women don't have to worry about finding the right grooming products that will help them combat skin and/or hair problems, men have to look a lot harder.

  24. Grooming is as important as having a sense of style. Or in fact, even more than that. You need to look presentable not just to impress that girl/boy you have a crush on, but also to impress the big clients in your next official meeting! Neglecting grooming is a big no-no, as it leaves people wondering why you couldn't have possibly taken care of yourself. So, here are signs to watch out for if you're neglecting grooming. If you relate with any of these, it's time to upgrade your grooming routine: © Epiphanydermatology 1. If you're getting razor burns from shaving, you might want to get a couple of things right. Firstly, make sure your razor is not infested with bacteria. Don't use your blade more than 3-4 times or more than three months at a stretch (whichever comes first). It's also important to prep your skin with hot water and use a moisturizer on your face. You need to follow up your shave with a good alcohol-free aftershave that minimizes irritation and the growth of ingrown hair. © Manyofmay 2. If your eyebrows are leaning towards becoming a unibrow, it's a huge problem. You might think that taking care of your brows is not manly enough but trust me, having a single brow or haphazard brows is not attractive. Taking care of your brows only makes you more presentable and handsome. It's time you start. © neckbeard.com 3. Having a neckbeard: You can't mistake your beard with extra growth on your neck. You need to draw a line that marks the ending of your beard. Try to keep the crop an inch above your Adam's apple for a smooth finish. © lybrate 4. Dry, cracked lips are a huge turn-off. Not only does it make your lips un-kissable but will also make you feel extremely uncomfortable throughout the day if you don't use a moisturizing agent. © baldingbeards 5. You need to change your oral hygiene routine if you have evil-smelling breath. The worst case scenario is when you possibly don't even know of its existence. It's time to ask a trusted person if your mouth reeks foul and if it does, take care of it with some good old mouthwash. Pro tip: Mint chewing gums help in emergency situations when you can't access a mouthwash or a brush. © baldingbeards 6. If wearing black means snowfall on your shoulders, it's time to keep watch on the kind of shampoo you're using. Switch to an anti-dandruff shampoo that'll help reduce the dandruff, so you don't have to constantly brush your shoulders to avoid visible residue. Oiling your hair on the regular is another way to tackle dandruff. © nextluxury 7. If partying or working late leaves you with dark, puffy eyes that take weeks to go, it's time to take care of them. You want to look fresh for a date or a meeting and not resemble a sleepy racoon. Try under-eye creams that can be really effective in reducing those dark circles. © fabhow 8. No-one wants to hold hands that are scaly, patchy. Since winters tend to make hands dry and rough, it's important to use a hand cream, so that you can have soft hands the next time your SO wants to hold hands with you.
  25. Wonder why her hands are supple to touch or why her skin has a flawless finish at all times? It's time for you to broaden the definition of grooming by taking inspiration from your girl's beauty stash. Reason: You'll be stunned by the sheer effectiveness of these products and once you cross over to the other side of products that make self-care seem irresistible for you, there's no coming back. This is not only a form of self-care but will also definitely upgrade your grooming game by a notch. 1. Lip Balm The lip balm has no gender. Also, it is a universally acknowledged fact that no one wants to kiss a pair of chapped lips. I'm sure you secretly agree with this too. Which leaves us to this conclusion: your lips need a balm. With Winter months right here, the weather can be terribly harsh for your skin and especially your lips. Your skin, just like your girlfriend's, is not impermeable to the dryness of Winter. Like her, you too need a moisturizing agent to save the lips from breaking into cracks. Try: Nivea Men Active Care Created especially for men, the lip balm moisturizes your lips without making it rather shiny, just in case you want to keep this your little secret. © Amazon Price: INR 120 Buy it here 2. Sunscreen I can't stress enough on the importance of sunscreen. Not only does it help prevent your skin from getting a rough tan but also saves you from the UV rays that are responsible for causing cancer. Now, that's a good enough reason to not say no to it. Ideally, for your face sunscreens, don't choose a cream below SPF 40, because most people don't apply enough and a lower SPF just won't do the job. Try: Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock (SPF 50+) Its ultralight formula blends flawlessly and helps prevent sunburns. © Amazon Price: INR 514 Buy it here 3. Leave-In Conditioner Winter months can leave your mane dry and brittle. A good solution would be to shampoo it less and condition it more. Trust me, when I say this- it's the most basic routine that every girl follows. A viable option is adding a leave-in conditioner to your routine. This not only gives the hair much-needed moisture that it lacks but also adds a healthy shine to your hair. Try: Pantene Oil Replacement The non-sticky formula takes barely a minute to apply and gives your hair all the goodness of a hair oil without leaving it oily and sticky. © Amazon Price: 150 Buy it here 4. Dry Shampoo A dry shampoo, contrary to a leave-in conditioner, is for those days when you absolutely don't have the time to shampoo or the bad hair days when your hair seems oily and limp and can be difficult to style. Dry shampoo absorbs the excess oil and leaves hair with much-needed volume. Try: Colab Sheer + Invisible Tropical Fragrance Dry Shampoo is great for cleansing out the excess of natural oil that leaves hair sticky and greasy. © Amazon Price: INR 699 Buy it here 5. Concealer A concealer is instrumental in saving your girl in times of crises. Whether it's a hickey on her neck that she needs to hide before an official meeting or a pimple on the face right before date night or even dark circles for that matter! This product upon generous use, conceals it all. Now, these aren't gendered problems. I'm sure you relate too. Use a concealer stick so that you could avoid the awkward moments when your hickey gets spotted. Try: Colorbar Full Cover Make Up Stick, this product is lightweight and creamy and will seamlessly blend in your skin. © Amazon Price: INR 675 Buy it here 6. Hand Cream No-one wants to hold hands that are scaly and unpleasant to touch, right? Ever wonder why your girl's hands are so soft to touch? Hand lotion is crucial in keeping the softness intact since the skin on your hands is devoid from the production of sebum oil (a natural skin moisturizer). This is where a hand lotion comes into the picture. Try: Dot & Key Hand Cream This one is ingrained with moisturizing and sanitizing properties that help keep the hands soft. © Amazon Price: 395 Buy it here 7. Hair Dryer I know, I know, a lot of you guys might already be using this. But for a few out there who aren't, the hair dryer might come off as useless at first glance but once you notice the difference between naturally dried hair and hair dried with a hairdryer you wouldn't want to go back. This gives an added definition to your hair and at a quicker pace, so it doesn't seem like much of a hassle and you don't get late for work. Try: Philips HP8100/46 Hair Dryer A reliable hair dryer that is easy to carry and styles hair while giving it volume quickly. © Amazon Price: INR 779 Buy it here
