Habits of a well-groomed man: the expert guide to men's grooming

If you’re a forward-thinking man who cares about the way they look, then it's a good idea to create your own weekly grooming schedule. This will help you to stay on top of your look and ensure you look great and feel great all year round. When you’re crafting your routine, there are eight solid men’s grooming habits you should look to incorporate. Trust us, we’re pros. Let’s get started.

1. Remember to moisturise

Using an all-natural moisturiser once, or ideally twice a day, is one of the best ways to help maintain healthy, youthful skin. Many of the tips that follow is up to you, but this one is non-negotiable. Have some faith, you’ll be thanking us in 20 years time. What’s the best moisturiser on the market? It’s got to be Men’s Botanics Moisturiser.

2. Make your barber your new best friend

Keeping an eye on your hair is crucial,and leaving it unattended for even just a few weeks will leave you looking more like a mop than a well-groomed man. We recommend forging a bond with your local barber so they understand your look and know what works best. Be sure to visit them every 2 to 3 weeks to keep your hair looking trim and sexy.

3. Find your scent

There are so many different aftershaves available, each one suited to a different kind of man. It’s important that you find one that makes you feel well, like you! Just make sure you don't overdo it. One or two sprays is more than enough. If you can smell yourself and almost taste the aftershave in the air, then you’ve gone too far!

4. Bro, do you even floss?

Be honest with us now, how often do you floss your teeth? If your answer is any less than once a day, then it’s not enough. Brushing your teeth twice a day is a given rule of good hygiene, but flossing after each time you brush is what sets you apart as a truly well-groomed man. It will help to keep plaque and bacteria at bay, and keep your teeth white and youthful for years to come.

5. Manage your facial hair

Here’s the truth, beards and facial hair only look good on certain types of guy. And even then, guys can usually only pull off one or two looks. It’s important to find yours now and stick to it. Invest in a good quality, hard wearing beard trimmer that can help you keep your look clean and precise. Or, if you’re a more youthful guy who can't pull off a beard, stop trying to! Keep your face clean-shaven and clear and don't leave the house with 2-day old stubble. Whenever you shave, be sure to use an all-natural shaving cream like Men’s Botanics Dual Action Shave Cream.

6. Oh… and your body hair too

Some guys just can't help it, hair grows on them like a wooly mammoth in winter time. If so, feel free to embrace it, but keep it in check. Letting your chest and stomach hair grow wild is going to hide your pecs and any definition in your abs. Keep it short and trim to help your efforts at the beach. Oh, and don't forget about the hair further down. Manscaping the nether regions is nicer for the ladies and much more hygienic. Just be careful when you're trimming, a small cut in such a sensitive area will leave you looking like a scene from CSI. 

7. Exfoliation for the win

Exfoliating your skin twice a week is a great way to get short-term, effective results from your male-grooming efforts. A proper exfoliation removes dead skin cells and reveals a fresh layer of skin underneath. Just be sure to use a natural exfoliator. A synthetic product will do your skin more harm than good.

8. Listen to your mum and wear the sunscreen!

Wearing sunscreen is a crucial step in the male-grooming process. Whenever you’re heading outside for more than a couple hours, be sure to apply it to any exposed skin. Even in the colder months when the sun’s not as hot, your body is still being exposed to harmful UV rays that can quickly speed up the ageing process.

Just remember, whenever you’re using substances in the male-grooming process, keep them all natural! The men’s skin care products from Men’s Botanics are all derived from natural substances and they offer the best way to keep your skin young and youthful. So start taking care of yourself naturally
