Welcome to the ultimate guide to men’s personal grooming, where we’ll cover everything you need to know about how to keep yourself looking and feeling great. Here’s your guide:

Shampoo and conditioner. If you have long hair, it’s best to shampoo at least once per week. For short or medium-length hair, every other week is fine. If you’re going to be wearing your hair up a lot (for example, in a ponytail), consider using a dry shampoo instead of washing it every day–it’ll make it look clean without weighing down the roots or causing any damage to your scalp.
Shower cap. If you’re not using one already, invest in one of these babies immediately: they keep water from dripping onto your clothes while also keeping them from getting wet themselves! Plus they’re super cheap at most drugstores or dollar stores so don’t feel bad about buying two or three!
Towel/headband combo: While drying off after showers can help speed up this process slightly since the towel dries faster than our bodies do (and thus absorbs less moisture), drying off completely will still take some time even if we use these two methods together…so why not use both? By wrapping yourself up tightly with an extra large bath towel then securing everything together behind your neck with another smaller towel wrapped around like an ascot (or headband), not only do we get rid of excess moisture but also stay warm while doing so! I know what some people may be thinking right now…”Isn’t this just going backwards?” Well no because there are still plenty more steps left–and besides who cares?!
Shaving is a daily routine for many men. The right way to do it can help keep your skin healthy and prevent razor burn, ingrown hairs, and other problems.
- Use a sharp blade: A dull blade will tug at the hair rather than cut it cleanly, which makes for an uncomfortable shave. If you have an old razor that you’ve been using for years–or if you just don’t know if yours is still sharp–the best thing to do is buy new ones!
- Shave every day: If you don’t want to deal with stubble between shaves (which can lead to irritation), then shave every single day when possible (or every other day).
- Wash away shaving cream before applying lotion: This helps reduce the risk of clogged pores from leftover residue on your face after shaving; moreover, it keeps skin soft throughout the day since moisturizers are best applied while they’re still wet.
- Remove dirt and oil from your face. Use a gentle cleanser to wash away dirt and oil, like this one from Dove Men+Care.
- Use moisturizer after washing your face with soap or cleanser (if you use one). Moisturizing can help keep skin soft and hydrated, which is especially important for men who have beards because they may not be able to see how dry their faces are getting until it’s too late! For starters, try this moisturizer from Dove Men+Care: http://bit.ly/2lCdVgX
- Exfoliate regularly to remove dead skin cells that build up over time–this helps prevent acne breakouts by allowing fresh new cells through the surface of the skin more quickly than normal washed-off versions would allow
Nose Hair and Ear Hair
- Trimming nose hair:
- Use a pair of scissors to trim the hairs that grow from your nostrils and upper lip. If you have very long or thick nose hair, use an electric trimmer instead. This will make it easier for you to see what you’re doing and ensure a clean cut every time.
- To avoid cutting yourself, start at the top of each nostril and cut down toward its base as close as possible without touching sensitive skin (like inside your nose). If necessary, turn on a mirror so that you can see what’s going on inside those cavernous openings!
- Repeat this process on both sides until all visible hairs have been removed or trimmed down significantly in length–you should be able to see less than half an inch when looking into each nostril from above; if not then keep going until there isn’t any more visible growth left over from where we started this step before moving onto step four below…
- Foot care is an important part of men’s personal grooming.
- Wash your feet daily with a mild soap, and dry them thoroughly afterward.
- Use a pumice stone to remove dead skin from the soles of your feet or calluses on the tops of toes or heels. You can also use a foot file to get rid of calluses; just be careful not to overdo it!
- Apply lotion or cream every day after washing and drying your feet (and hands). If you don’t already have some type of moisturizer on hand, try applying petroleum jelly as an easy alternative–it’ll work just as well!
As you may have noticed, we live in a culture where body hair is still an issue for many men. The fact that you are reading this article means that you are already on the path to becoming a better groomed man and have recognized that there is more to personal grooming than just shaving off your face and head.
Body hair can be painful to remove depending on where it is located and how much of it there is, so make sure to plan ahead when deciding how best to handle your body hair situation. Body hair can also be embarrassing; if others see your chest or legs covered in stubble when they don’t expect them too then it could make them feel uncomfortable around you–especially if they’re female!
And finally: having an unshaven chest doesn’t always mean being masculine–it could actually mean being lazy or cheap (or both).
Mouthwash, Breath Spray and Flossing
- Mouthwash. The most effective way to prevent bad breath is by using mouthwash twice a day. In addition to killing bacteria in your mouth, it also keeps your teeth and gums healthy by helping to remove stains caused by coffee, tea or smoking.
- Breath spray. If you’re not a fan of the taste of mouthwash or don’t have time for it during your morning routine, then consider using breath sprays instead–they can provide similar benefits without having to rinse out your mouth afterwards! Just be sure that whatever product you choose doesn’t contain alcohol; this ingredient can dry out the mucous membranes inside our mouths over time which may lead them become more susceptible infections like gingivitis (a form of gum disease).
So there you have it. The complete guide to men’s personal grooming. We hope that you found this article helpful and informative, and we wish you all the best in your journey towards becoming a more confident and well-groomed person!
