Guys, you may be right in thinking that this month you officially get to grow your beard as long and as heavy as you want it to be. But if you think that you can achieve your ‘ruggedly handsome’ look without any effort from your side, then you are so wrong! Because that, Mo Bro, will give you an unkempt and disheveled look which is almost never attractive!
Well, it’s time to get, set and groom because there isn’t much left of Movember and we have 9 foolproof tips for you to go from hobo to handsome!
Really important! Have it done once every three weeks. Plan an ‘upkeep’ regimen with your stylist or barber so you always look well groomed. But remember: the shorter your hair, the more upkeep it needs.
Planning to switch your look? Discuss with your stylist! It’s important to have a master plan, as you may require more upkeep and touch-ups every couple of weeks to start the process.
Give your skin a little TLC and it will do a LOT for it. Including a face wash, moisturiser and a sunscreen in your daily routine is what your skin will thank you for!
Moisturise like a pro
It’s as important for your body to get moisturised as it is for your face. Grab a fast-absorbing lotion and apply it preferably right after your shower, concentrating on rough patches like the feet and elbows.
To shave or not to shave?
It’s wise not to shave on the day of the event. Nicks and irritated skin doesn’t look good on anybody. And if you’re worried about a five-o’clock shadow, head to your local barber in the morning because nothing can beat a professional shave!
Rock a full beard
We know your love for a heavy and full beard but if you really wish to rock your look, ignoring those unwanted stray hairs is just not what you should be doing. Take a razor and well, you know the rest!
Say no to razor burns
The pressure you apply to make your razor move smoothly across your face is what results in cuts, irritation and burns. It’s because your razor gets dull so make sure that it always has a clean, sharp blade.
Bleeding from a razor cut?
Just what we dread the most! But we have 2 very easy solutions!
You could either try putting some of your deodorant on an earbud and holding it against the wound. Deodorant contains aluminium chloride, which clots cuts.
Or you could try dabbing a little lip balm on the cut instead! Try this the next time you face this little accident!
Get up and get started!
The sooner you add these tools to your daily regimen, the easier your daily routine will become:
- A hair product like styling cream for a natural look with some support.
- Tweezers for plucking out those stray, unwanted hairs.
- Floss and mouthwash because nobody needs to know what you ate for dinner.
Now, are you one of those men who find it an everyday struggle to be well groomed and believe that shaving at home is never as good as a shave you’d get from a barber? Just head out to a salon and get a complete grooming session from a specialist!
