Check Out These 5 Helpful Grooming Tips For The Modern Gentleman

Be that well-groomed and dapper-looking gentleman you wish to be with these useful tips!

Everything counts in a first impression. Whether you are on a job interview, in a business meeting, or on a blind date, you'll be judged positively or negatively based on how you present yourself. Even if you are the funniest or the nicest guy out there, bad grooming habits can cost you a job, a business deal, or a chance with your dream girl. Have you realized how much is at stake if you don't take grooming seriously?

Having no concrete grooming habit can also take a toll on your self-confidence. When you see men who seem to have been born dapper, you might feel subtle envy. On the contrary, if you give time to groom yourself on a daily basis, you will be giving out a good impression that lasts. Take a look at these 5 simple yet helpful grooming tips for the modern gentleman.

1. Have a Facial Skin Care Routine

Washing your face is the first step in any skin care routine. However, don't just wash your face with the soap you use for your body as they tend to dry out the facial skin. Choose a facial wash for men that matches your skin type. After washing your face, apply a moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated and nourished. Scrub your face with a facial scrub once or twice a week to scrape the dead skin cells and make it easier to shave.

2. Groom Your Beard

Having a beard seems cool and manly but if it gets really scruffy and smelly, it's a turn-off for ladies. In that case, beard maintenance is a must. Before shaving, make sure that you have applied shaving foam on the area to help the razor glide easily and avoid razor burns. If you decided to keep your beard instead of shaving it all off, trim it down if it grows too long and regularly condition it with beard oil.

3. Nail Your Hand Care Routine

Being a man isn't an excuse for not having well-trimmed nails and a good hand care routine. Trim off your nails at least once a week, preferably after taking a bath or shower. Water is a natural nail-softener so you wouldn't have a hard time cutting your nails. File your nails regularly so they remain well-shaped and dirt doesn't accumulate on them. If you often shake hands with other people, always have a hand cream on steady.

4. Always Brush Your Teeth

To be able to communicate well with other people is essential for the modern gentleman. But, if you have stinky-smelling breath, the person talking to you will walk away. Always remember to brush your teeth three times a day. Brushing doesn't only freshen up your breath but also removes the excess food particles that have accumulated in your mouth. After brushing, floss the hard-to-reach areas in between the teeth.

5. Find Your Signature Scent

Smelling good is important for men. However, you should have your signature scent that can attract ladies. The general rule of thumb is: Find a perfume that will match and accentuate your body's natural scent, instead of masking or overpowering it. Don't shower yourself with cologne and never use it to conceal body odor because it just doesn't work.

Dude, invest time and money in grooming yourself and you'll be leaving good first impressions wherever you go!
