It’s not abnormal for men to use various hygiene and skincare products as much as some think it is. Women love a man that is well groomed and clean. Taking care of yourself will make you stand out and make you feel good.
Here are my top 5 picks for products every guy should be using if you aren’t already!
When you go to the average drug store and head to the extremely small men’s section of products, most of what you see are 3 in 1 products that claim to be a shampoo, conditioner and body wash all in one. However, this is not what I mean when I talk about conditioner. You need to invest in a good, dedicated conditioner to keep your hair soft, moisturized and rejuvenated.
It helps improve your overall look and keep your hair healthy, especially if you are constantly using gels and other products in your hair.
Invest the extra few dollars on a good conditioner and keep it separate from your shampoo and body wash.
2) Face Scrub
Face scrub is an excellent way to get rid of dry or dead skin, and prevent acne breakouts. Face scrub can really bring a healthy look to your face and really improve your appearance to those around you. Even if you don’t want to use it daily, using face scrub a couple times a week can really help.
3) Face Moisturizer
If you are going to be using a face scrub, you are going to need a face moisturizer. While a face scrub will help clean and remove dry and dead skin, the moisturizer will soften and smooth out your face leaving that perfect look that will definitely make you stand out. Face moisturizer is also an excellent alternative to after shave. Most after shave products can be harsh on the skin, while a face moisturizer won’t leave your face burning.
Sunscreen can be really important if you spend a lot of time outside or even driving. Men who don’t use sunscreen increase their risk of getting sun damage. By using sunscreen daily you can prevent sun damaged skin, and reduce the risk of skin cancer. If you are looking to combine products and speed up your morning routine, look for a moisturizer that has SPF 30 or better included. This will leave you with one less thing to do, and one less thing to remember daily.
5) Mouth Wash
Now this one may seem obvious, but I know personally for a while I wasn’t using it daily. I would highly recommend you start if you don’t already do so.
A good mouth wash can really help improve your breath, especially if you are talking face to face with people all the time. While brushing your teeth is very important to do, it doesn’t kill all the bacteria and this is where mouthwash comes in. Most popular mouth wash products come with fluoride in them now which also helps strengthen teeth.
This may seem a little over whelming, especially if you aren’t the type who normally uses these products. You don’t need to litter your bathroom with a ton of product, a few quality products is all you need.
Taking the time each day to use a few extra products can help improve your overall appearance and help you stand out in the crowd.
