Good grooming should be a year-round goal, not just on special occasions. However, there are certain days when it’s especially important to have an impeccable routine in place. With Valentine’s Day, just around the corner, there’s no better time to put some extra effort into your grooming routine!
You don’t need to spend tons of money on lots of expensive man-products; instead, choose a few quality ones that actually do the job. Here are five investments in your grooming routine that will bring you and your partner more pleasure on Valentine’s Day
1. Invest in Your Smile
If you don’t have an electric toothbrush by now, you’re losing out on what could be one of technology’s best advancements. The powered rotating bristles are healthy and safe. In fact, they are better for reducing plaque, which in turn keeps you safe from gum infection. And, of course, you’re going to need your bright, clean and gorgeous smile for that special date. For extra care, use a good mouthwash and have some dental floss handy.
2. Nail that Flawless Shaving Routine
A good razor is the secret to the perfect shave. You can prep your skin before shaving with either a simple moisturiser or special shave oil. Then, when you start to shave, there will be less chance of irritation, redness and that uncomfortable feeling afterwards. If keeping track of how new or dull your blade is a chore, you can find a selection of great razors that come in monthly subscription boxes.
3. Take Care of your Feet
Don’t you want your loved one to enjoy snuggling up to every part of you? Many men neglect caring for their feet, leaving them dry or unkempt. No one wants to see ugly feet! So, the week before Valentine’s, why not treat yourself to a pedicure? If you lack time, a simple warm soak followed by scrubbing with a pumice stone will rid your heels and soles of dry, flaky skin.
4. No Unibrows, Please!
Take a tip from George Clooney or Zac Efron: although they manage to impress with their dark and bushy eyebrows, they both have distinctly plucked and shaped brows, no unibrows in sight! So, if you are at the barber, don’t be afraid to ask him to “clean up” the area between your eyebrows. It’s a request people often have, so there’s no shame in mentioning it.
Finally, when you are preparing for your date, we hope you’ve showered and sprayed on a touch of cologne to smell your best.
The best investment you can make in your self-care is learning to be confident. Having a fun personality when around your loved one comes in at a close second to being well groomed.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
