Expert Grooming Tips For The Modern Gentleman
19 May 2021
Gentlemen, a great shave and men’s facial with your trusted barber can make you feel like a king. However, what happens when you cannot visit your barber every day? This is where your daily grooming routine can come in handy. With this in mind, we share a few expert tips on how to elevate your grooming routine to capture that dapper look daily.
Wash Your Face Each Day
To maintain your skin healthy, make sure to wash your face daily using a cleanser specifically formulated for men. Remember, your skin and pores encounter dirt and grime throughout the day – elements that remain on your skin if you do not cleanse it, causing dull skin and breakouts. Every other day, opt for exfoliating your skin to slough away dead skin cells and impurities – allowing your skin to breathe. If you find it hard to remember to cleanse or exfoliate, try leaving the products in your shower for easy use.
Elevate Your Shave
Not all shaving creams or gels are created equal. A good quality shaving cream or shaving gel can make a world of a difference in your skin’s health and smoothness. Elevate your shave experience with a shave gel or cream that allows for a closer shave, softens the facial hair, and reduces irritation and razor burn.
Following your shave, apply your preferred men’s eye cream for a more refreshed look. For an extra boost, opt for a men’s anti-aging moisturizer which will help give your skin the nutrients it needs to remain firm and healthy – such as ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Marine Cream For Men.
Visit Your Barber Each Month
While styled men’s hair is always a great option, your natural hair provides a canvas for this. To have the best canvas to create your styled look, begin with keeping your hair healthy. We suggest booking an appointment with your barber every four weeks for a trim. By keeping this in your monthly schedule, your cut will always look sharp. In between those monthly barber visits, care for your hair by using hair products formulated for men, and backed by science, such as the KÉRASTASE Densifique Bodifying Shampoo for Men which uses biotin and texturizing polymers to give a thickening effect – keeping your hair looking full and healthy.
Maintain Your Eyebrows
If the eyes are the windows to the soul, then the eyebrows are the curtains. Your eyebrows are a key component to your expression – and while neglected at times – they deserve a spot in your grooming routine. If you prefer to take on this task yourself, begin by plucking the middle hairs (in between your eyebrows) to remove any unibrow. Otherwise, ask your barber to clean up your brows during your monthly haircut.
Opt For The Tailored Look
Your perfected grooming routine is not complete without the proper clothing to match. From your daily wear to your tuxedos, opt for the tailored look. This means making sure your pants are hemmed to the perfect length and your shirts and jackets are tailored to your body. This is something that can be done with many companies you purchase your clothing from or with a trusted neighborhood tailor.
